Saturday Night Live and host Melissa McCarthy took on some timely issues by poking fun at North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and the recent firing of Rutgers' head basketball coach.

The cold open featured Jong-un (Bobby Moynihan) revealing that he was reversing the country's ban of gay marriage. He went on to explain that his decision was influence by his gay nephew — who he still had to execute.

Peter Dinklage shined in a cameo during Weekend Update where he and drunk uncle (Moynihan) dueted on Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is."
