Saturday Night Live took time out this weekend to mock Joe Biden’s memory lapses and Donald Trump’s absence from Twitter.
Colin Jost kicked off the Super Bowl edition of the “Weekend Update” by mentioning President Biden’s stimulus plan and his habit of giving impromptu massages when he was VP.
“President Biden said Friday he will move ahead with his $1.9 trillion stimulus plan, with or without Republican support, because this economy needs a massage and Joe Biden isn’t waiting for permission,” Jost said to laughter.
He then took a shot at Biden’s memory. “An interview with Biden will air before tomorrow’s Super Bowl between the Bucs and the Chiefs,” he continued. “Incidentally, buc and chief are also what Biden calls his friends when he forgets their names.”
Jost and co-anchor Michael Che got in a few laughs at the expense of embattled Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, before turning their attention to Trump.
“Former social media influencer Donald Trump will not testify at his impeachment trial next week and I think I speak for all of us, when I say, come on, please?” Jost quipped. “Give us one last show, man. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, put in your [hair] extensions and burst into that trial like it is Maury Povich and you are NOT THE FATHER!”
Jost then admitted he misses Trump’s Twitter meltdowns after 45 was kicked off the social media platform. Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg also booted Trump from that platform and sister site Instagram for using social media to “incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”
Earlier during SNL, the NBC sketch series aired a segment on “White allies” hijacking Black History Month.
“It’s Black History Month and today we spotlight one group that is often overlooked — White people,” Kenan Thompson joked. “White allies have been part of the Black American struggle for centuries.”
