Saturday Night Live opened up once again with a spoof of the presidential race, this time recreating the “dueling town halls” between U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden earlier this week.
Featuring cast members Mikey Day as ABC News moderator George Stephanopoulos and Kate McKinnon as NBC News moderator Savannah Guthrie, as well as guests Alec Baldwin and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as Trump and Biden, the parody opened up with a short text on video introduction.
“Good evening, I’m George Stephanopoulos and the vibe we’re going for tonight is poorly attended college lecture. The folks asking questions are half pro-Biden and half anti-Trump and somehow we’ve put all of them in the last row of the balcony,” said Day, later introducing Carrey’s Biden who wandered into the audience to greet people.
“Sorry, I was just really excited to talk to America, with real life Americans,” said Carrey, jumping into a dance “for the kids on TikTok.”
The night’s first question was from an audience member played by cast member Chris Redd.
“Mr. vice president, how would your response to COVID be different to the horrible one of president Trump, who I hate?”
