Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden is trying not to brag on “Saturday Night Live.”
The opening sketch poked fun at Election
Day week across the country, which came to a head Saturday morning when Joe Biden was projected as the president-elect.
“I’ve never felt so alive which is ironic because I’m not that alive,” Carrey’s Biden said during his first speech as president-elect just hours after his real-life counterpart attempted to unite the nation outside the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware.
Carrey’s Biden maintained that he would be “gracious” in his victory, but his running mate had other plans.
Maya Rudolph’s Kamala Harris, who said her historic firsts “checked more boxes than a disqualified ballot,” asked if she could rub it in the Trump administration’s face just a little.
She then played a song on her phone: the viral “Lose Yo Job” anthem.
Carrey’s Biden and Rudolph’s Harris broke into a victory dance. Carrey even repeated his iconic “Ace Ventura” line.
“There must be a winner and a loser,” Carrey’s Biden said.
And to children wondering why their mothers are switching between “laughing to crying to dancing pretty much all night,” Rudolph’s Harris reassured them, “it’s not because she’s crazy, it’s because she’s drunk.”
Meanwhile, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, who said he’s been awake “so long my weird stubbly beard makes sense,” directed everyone’s attention to a concession speech from Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump.
Trump, however, claimed it was his own “victory speech” after repeating that the “election is rigged.”
The president then proceeded to “remind all of you who I really am.” Seated behind a piano, Trump performed a slowed down rendition of the Village People’s “Macho Man.”
Baldwin’s Trump signed off: “This isn’t a goodbye America, this is a see you in court.”
