Julia Louis-Dreyfus Hosts Final Night Of Democratic National Convention, Jokes About Trump, Pence & Fox News
Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted the final night of the Democratic National Convention – and spent much of the night taking jabs at President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Fox News.
The tone of Thursday was a clear shift from the previous nights of the convention. Viewers seemed split on the former Veep star’s roasts of the president.
“Just remember,” she said during the night, “Joe Biden goes to church so regularly that he doesn’t even need tear gas and a bunch of federalized troops to help him get there.”
At the beginning of the night, Louis-Dreyfus was introduced by former 2020 Democratic candidate Andrew Yang. The pair performed a bit where they pretended they didn’t know how to pronounce Mike Pence’s last name, possibly in reference to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who, after he was corrected by a guest on his show on how to say Kamala Harris‘ name, responded, “So what?”
“I cannot wait to see her debate our current Vice President, Meeka Pints,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “Or is it Paints?”
“It’s pronounced Pahnce, I believe,” Yang replied.
“It’s some kind of weird foreign name,” Louis-Dreyfus joked.
“Yeah, not very American sounding,” Yang said.

The actress also joked about the often-plugged number viewers were urged to text to learn more about Biden’s campaign. At one point she said the number, 30330 would be Trump’s golf score if he didn’t cheat.
“An easy way to remember 30330 is that’s the way Donald Trump will finally release his tax returns,” she said at another point in the show. “If we all vote, there’s nothing Facebook, Fox News and Vladimir Putin can do to stop us.”
