According to news sources in the days leading up to the weekend, the “Saturday Night Live” cast was split on whether to ask comic Dave Chapelle back for a third hosting gig in light of the “transphobic” remarks he made in his previous comedy special.
However, they did not disagree on their sense of victory at the “red wave’s” failure.
For instance, the fake section from “Fox & Friends” that opened the show criticized the outgoing president: “Seems like everybody is turning on Trump! “, allegedly Ainsley Earhardt (cast member Heidi Gardner).
Fake Brian Kilmeade said, “And, per a company-wide email we got this morning, he’s dead to us.” (cast member Bowen Yang).
In other words, it was back to the show’s typical Trump-bashing routine. And thus another justification for why, even with a celebrity presenter like Chappelle, 11:35 p.m. On NBC, Saturday night remains the time when optimism or laughter perishes.
To be exceedingly kind, if we remember any political sketch from this season of “SNL” in 20 years, it might have been the one from two weeks ago, when the program explained why the Democrats are still in trouble while supporting President Joe Biden.
The poorly thought-out defense of Biden began as a parody of how formulaic horror movie previews are, but with a catch: The horror? Biden wants to run for office again.
The trailer’s voiceover claimed, “You trusted him once,”. “Can you trust him again?”
A typical liberal pair went into shock as soon as it was revealed that Biden would be running again.
The male partner in the alliance, played by Mikey Day, declares, “I know he’s a little old, but … he can still win,”. “Right? He beat Trump!”
“But can he beat DeSantis?!” Chloe Fineman, who plays his terrified partner, replies.
He replies menacingly, “I don’t know.”
After looking out Biden’s age in 2024 on Google, cast member Punkie Johnson lets out a bloodcurdling scream: 81 years old.

However, the joke isn’t meant to mock Biden himself (it’s not his fault he’ll be 81, after all). Instead, the target is liberals who, for whatever reason, aren’t convinced that the president is doing a good job. Witness the narrator, who says, “When it feels like nothing’s going right … even though it kind of is.”
Oh, really? How is it going right?
“Why are we so worried?” Fineman says. “He’s done so much! Student debt relief, holding NATO together, the infrastructure bill.”
“But he fell off a bike once!” a sniveling Day says. CONTINUE READING…
