Saturday night’s episode (October 17) kicked off with a cold open playfully poking fun at the town halls, which made headlines for being scheduled at the exact same time amid protests from Hollywood to stagger the airings.
The skit featured viewers flipping back and forth between the two.
“One town hall was a thoughtful, cogent discussion of the issues facing our country. The other featured President Trump,” the announcer said.
Savannah Guthrie, who earned social media praise for taking the President to task, was played by Kate McKinnon, while Jim Carrey played Biden. <strong>Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump, and Maya Rudolph played Kamala Harris.
One former cast member recently explained why she doesn’t miss being on SNL.
