Jim Carey, Maya Rudolph, and Alec Baldwin appeared on Saturday Night Live all doing their now famous parodies of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and President Trump, but their performances all far outshined previous outings.
ET reported: “Saturday Night Live was brimming with joy and excitement following Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ election victory, and it was evident in this weekend’s cold open. The extremely timely sketch focused on a speech Biden and Harris delivered just hours before airtime.”
Jim Carrey reprised his role as Biden, and shared a message of celebration and unity.
“Thank you very much, America. We did it!” Carrey’s Biden exclaimed to resounding cheers from the theater audience. “Can you believe it? I honestly kind of can’t. It’s been so long since something good happened!”
“As I’ve said many times, I don’t care whether you voted for me or not. I’m going to be a president for all Americans,” Biden continued. “That’s right. Whether you’re from a liberal state like California or a conservative state like Oklahoma, or a cracked-out, hot mess like Florida, I will be your president.”
Maya Rudolph hit the stage with a message for the children of exuberant parents. “To all the little Black and brown girls watching right now, I just want to say this. The reason your mom is laughing so much tonight, is because she’s drunk. And the reason she’s crying is because she’s drunk. Your mom is going to switch from laughing, to crying, to dancing pretty much all night. And it’s not because she’s crazy. It’s because she’s drunk.”
