“Saturday Night Live” opened this weekend’s show with an interview between CNN’s Wolf Blitzer (played by actor Beck Bennett) and Pandemic’s “American Gothic”: Task Force members on White House coronavirus, Dr Anthony Fauci and Dr Deborah Birx (Kate McKinnon and Heidi Gardner).

Bennett’s Blitzer compared the vaccine – the Pfizer and BioNTech candidate was approved for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday – to Sony’s PlayStation 5.

“Everyone wants it, no one can get it – and if you’re rich you already had it a month ago,” he said.

While Fauci and Birx were acclaimed, McKinnon’s Fauci reminded the audience to “minimize ‘woo’s’ because” woo’s spread droplets. ”

McKinnon – who also played men such as Rudy Giuliani, Senator Lindsey Graham and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions – said the United States was rolling out the vaccine “in World War II” by “bringing in England. first ”then” we rush to the end and we steal the show.

McKinnon’s Fauci added that Tom Hanks will be making 10 vaccine movies and when it’s finally over, “you can kiss any nurse you want. ”

He and Birx then said the first doses of the vaccine would go to healthcare workers, the elderly – “anyone who pays the Red Lobster with a Diner’s Club Card” – then prisoners, teachers and the sick.

All the others? They will get it on “July 20… bada bada,” Fauci said, being vague about the year.

Criticizing President Trump’s work in getting the vaccine ready for distribution, McKinnon’s Fauci said, “I’m trying not to comment, but this president did as good a job with this deployment as I did in. making this speech to the Nationals.

Bennett’s Blitzer then showed a video clip of the real Fauci throwing a really bad ceremonial pitch during a Washington Nationals baseball game in July.

Birx de Gardner comforted Facui by saying, “We are all wrong sometimes. You pitched the ball badly, I didn’t say ‘Don’t drink the bleach.’ ”

The sketch also referred to Fauci’s bizarre sex symbol status among some Americans, because, according to McKinnon’s Fauci, “I was the only one telling the facts.

“Any other year, I’m a two. This year I’m a 10, ”he shrugged.

Doctors also explained how they plan to get around the problems of storing the vaccine in extremely cold temperatures and making sure Americans come back for a second dose.

Garner’s Birx said the vaccine will be stored in “Coor’s Light cold activated cans” – “So when the mountains are blue you know the vaccine is working.

McKinnon’s Fauci said they plan to use a “technique that has long been used by one-night stands that captured feelings.”

Patients who have received a dose of the vaccine can leave a collar at CVS, “just to have an excuse to go back.”

He added that the distribution will be in alphabetical order, starting with “A-California” and “Ba-New York City”. And in New Orleans, the vaccine will be thrown away like Mardi Gras beads.

“The more you show, the more you get,” he says.
