WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Mocks Trump’s Manic Presidential Debate Performance
Saturday Night Live kicked of its 46 season last night with a spoof of the first presidential debate, which took place on September 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
The skit of the first presidential debate poked fun at the constant interruptions by President Donald Trump and his way of avoiding answering the questions he was asked. It also mocked Vice President Joe Biden‘s habit of getting distracted and speaking directly to the camera, in an effort to personally address people watching at home.
Beck Bennett, who played moderator Chris Wallace, starts the skit by mentioning the topics that will be addressed during the debate such as the Supreme Court and COVID-19.
Seconds into the debate and Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, interrupts Wallace.
“Boring!,” says Trump after being told both parties had agreed to two-minute response time each.
The 13-minute skit also included jabs att Biden, played by Jim Carrey, portraying him as a distracted elderly man who could not keep his thoughts together. Biden repeatedly reminded himself at the podium to keep calm and not answer back to Baldwin’s Trump rude comments.
Sen. Kamala Harris, played by Maya Rudolph, plays the role of a mom taking care of three young children, Trump, Biden and Wallace.
The season’s kick off episode was hosted by Chris Rock and Megan Thee Stallion. Stallion took the opportunity to speak up for black women in America.
“We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women ’cause at the end of the day, we need our black women,” said Stallion referring to the decision to charge just one officer in the Breonna Taylor killing in September.
