“Saturday Night Live,” the long-running, notoriously liberal late-night comedy show, has been taking aim of late at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
In their cold open on Saturday, the show mocked Biden, calling him a “future oatmeal salesman” and portraying him as Mr. Rogers.
Biden, played by Jim Carrey, takes the stage at his town hall in Philadelphia, then almost immediately walks off toward the audience, saying, “Hey, is that Bobby Clark of the 1974-75 Flyers,” a reference to the city’s hockey team.
“Mr. Vice President, Mr. Vice President, please don’t wander into the audience to greet people,” says Mikey Day, portraying ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, who moderated Thursday’s debate.
“Sorry, I’m just so excited to talk to America, with real-life Americans,” says Carrey, who then does a little dance. “That’s a dance for the kids on TikTok.”
“OK, Joe let’s focus. Are you read for softball questions from folks who are already voting for you?” Day says.
