‘SNL’ parodies vice-presidential debate with Biden like a fly on Pence’s head – National


Following on from last week’s cold opening theme on the presidential debate, Saturday Night Live usurped the vice presidential debate between Republican Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic challenger Kamala Harris.With Maya Rudolph as Harris, Beck Bennett as Pence, Kate McKinnon as debate moderator Susan Page and guest Jim Carrey reprising his role as Joe Biden, the parody began with a bang on Pence’s elusive responses to the subject of the coronavirus. .

“Now you were in charge of the coronavirus task force, and since you took the lead over 200,000 Americans have died – how do you explain that? McKinnon asked.

Rudolph’s Harris objected to the US government’s response to the spread of the virus. She also brushed aside the facial expressions Harris had as Pence spoke.

“Now I would like to hear the VP’s response and while he speaks I’m going to smile at him like I’m in a TJ Maxx and a white woman asks me if I work here,” said Rudolph, his face growling with apparent annoyance at Bennett’s responses.

Next come jabs over Harris and Biden’s opinions on fracking, as well as the subject of Donald Trump’s health after his coronavirus diagnosis last week.

Watching the debate at home on his sofa, Carrey’s Biden then decides to take a teleporter on stage in order to “save the soul of this nation”.

The teleporter contained a fly – much like the plot of the 1986 Jeff Goldblum film.

Coming back to the debate, a fly landed on the head of his Pence – which happened in the actual event – but it turned out to be a Biden-fly hybrid that was buzzing and exclaiming “let me go. em… bzzzz…. With his fist raised.

A second fly on Pence’s head, portrayed by Kenan Thompson, turns out to be a reincarnated version of Trump supporter and American businessman Herman Cain, who opposed the mask warrants and later switched from COVID-19 in July.

“Flies, do you have anything to add?” asked McKinnon, who closed the debate.

“Be scared, be very scared,” Carrey’s fly said, vomiting white liquid out of its mouth.
