Kate McKinnon repeated her role as Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live to warn Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden not to be too confident that he will win the election.
SNL’s cold open saw Carrey’s Biden in an armchair surrounded by Halloween decorations. “Greetings, America! It is a spooky time full of demons and darkness… it’s Halloween too,” he said. “For some Trump voters, this is the only day they will wear a mask.”
He added, “Do you like my decorations? I borrowed them from Melania’s Christmas display.”
Carrey’s Biden then calmed voters who were concerned about the outcome of the election.
“Don’t worry, they say I’m up eight points. Poll scores like these can only go wrong once in a blue moon,” he said before looking out the window and seeing the rare phenomenon. “Well, that’s a little worrying,” he said.
By the way, there was a blue moon this Halloween – that’s what the second full moon in a calendar month is called.
Carreys Biden goes on to say that he “wants to distract us from the election by reading a scary story”.
“It’s a little too scary,” he says after picking up a copy of Donald Trump Jr.’s Triggered.
Then he reads a newly invented version of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem The Raven.
“Once upon a time in a midnight dreariness, Trump picked up the QAnon theories again and rummaged through his Adderall drawer while I was writing my acceptance speech, when something stopped me with a shriek,” Biden’s Carrey relates.
“There was a knock at my chamber door. It was someone who was still a little sore’, he continued. McKinnon’s Clinton, who wore a blue pantsuit and a raven costume, then swept into the room.
“They could be afraid of four more years, the Clinton said,” said Carrey’s Biden, and McKinnon’s Clinton added, “We’ve lost before.
“I said, Raven, stop being such a pain in the ass, we have victory in the bag,” continued Carrey’s Biden. “That’s what every expert from coast to coast has said… .”
“Not Michael Moore!” McKinnon’s Clinton agreed.
“He says that voters are under-reported in the polls, even if you win on Tuesday, you could still have your vote stolen, so… .”
“I told c’mon no one would dare… I will be sworn in fairly and honestly, all votes will be taken into account,” said Carrey’s Biden.
“Like Al Gore?” McKinnon’s Clinton added.
“This time it’s different, I can win, people know I have a plan,” continued Carrey’s Biden.
“But your real advantage is that you are not a woman, you are a man!” McKinnon’s Clinton added.
“Just kidding, you got it!” McKinnon added before leaving the room.
Carrey’s Biden then turns to journalist Nate Silver of Five thirtyEight, played by Mikey Day, for reassurance.
“I visited the FiveThirtyEight website to learn about my election fate,” says Carrey’s Biden. “Nate Silver, you all know the result, although…”
“I was wrong before!” Day’s Silver is ready.
Carrey’s Biden continued: “Our country is not haunted, we just have to come together like two butt cheeks to stop the Cr*p.
“Decent people out there, I ask, didn’t Trump fail in his task?”
Carrey’s Biden then asks Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd, who portray Ice Cube and Lil Wayne, why they support the president.
“Why in the name of all that is holy should you vote for Trump,” Carrey’s Biden asked them, “Taxes,” the two answered in unison.
“Trump can’t win, we have to do better than this spray-tanned super shaker,” continued Carrey’s Biden. “Nevertheless, I will win, because I am a ballplayer… just ask my running buddy Kamala.”
At this point, Maya Rudolph came in and resumed her role as Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
She was followed by Beck Bennett as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who told Carrey’s Biden that he secretly campaigned for him.
“Use your voice and use your voice, democracy will represent,” said Rudolphs Harris. Carrey added: “Let’s win an hour and lose a president this summer”.
