Well fear that, if you’re not laughing you’ll be crying, because ‘SNL’ was killed with their cold open, where ‘President Biden’ blamed COVID and just about every other issue plaguing America on… SPIDER-MAN!!!
pete davidson – who became the star of ‘SNL’ – appeared in all his glory as Joe Biden in the real universe, and it’s pretty hilarious.
But before that, Biden (played by James Austin Johnson) explained that there is a cure for COVID, and it’s not the vaccine… simply put: “Stop seeing ‘Spider-Man!'”
Biden gets grilled like a cheeseburger during a White House press conference, connecting the dots by saying, “Now think about it. When did ‘Spider-Man’ come out? Dec. 17. When did each person receive Omicron? The week after December 17.”
And then there was this advice from the Prez… “See something else.” I saw the first half hour of “House of Gucci”. That’s more than enough film for anyone.”
As for how you know if you have COVID… “Want to know if you have Covid? Look at your hand. Is it holding a ticket that says you recently went to see ‘Spider-Man’ If so, you have Covid.”
Then Pete appears, baring his chest covered in tattoos and explaining why, in the real world, Biden wasn’t president. It’s funny, but treading on dangerous territory.
So how long before Pete hops on a plane to go home away from home?
