Jim Carrey's Joe Biden makes SNL debut and it's as chaotic as you'd expect

Jim Carrey made his Joe Biden debut on Saturday Night Live as their take on the first presidential debate devolved into chaos. 

The satirical sketch show made its return this weekend for its 46th season, and started with their take on Trump and Biden’s first public clash, which took place on Tuesday. 

With the pair’s first interaction being less-than-well received, it was perfect for Jim Carrey to cut his teeth as the Democratic nominee for president. 

Joined by Maya Rudolph as running mate Kamala Harris, and Alec Baldwin who returned as Trump, things got off to a start with the declaration: ‘We thought it was important to see it again… since it might be the only presidential debate.’ 

Strolling out in a set of aviator’s, Jim Carrey’s Biden came equipped with a tape measure to ensure he was socially distant enough from Trump. 

Trump (who was diagnosed with coronavirus three days after the debate took place) swore that he had taken a Covid test to be present for the debate, after appearing at a fundraiser where no one wore one. 

Repeatedly interrupting each other, Biden eventually needed to calm down – and recruited Harry Styles, who made a cameo appearance at the voice of a relaxation app (which actually exists, by the way, and is amazing). 

Eventually, ‘Momala’ Kamala Harris stepped in to smooth things over – and kept it cooler than ever as she declared: ‘I think if there’s one thing we learned tonight, it’s that America needs a WAP: woman as president. 

‘But for now I’ll settle for HVPIC – hot vice president in charge.’ 

We knew it would be must watch TV.

The presidential season is fully upon us, with the SNL team returning for its 46th season and taking shots at both the Democratic and Republican nominees.

On the Weekend Update – a comedic take on the news cycle – Colin Jost and Michael Che were quick to call out Trump as he tackles coronavirus at an Army hospital.

‘It’s a bad sign for America that when Trump said he tested positive for a virus, 60% of people were like, “prove it” – and it’s very weird to see all these people, who clearly hate Trump come out and say, “we wish him well”,’ Colin joked.

‘I think a lot of them are just guilty that their first wish came true.’ 

Michael Che added: ‘A lot of people on both sides are saying there’s nothing funny about Trump being hospitalised with coronavirus – even though he mocked the safety precautions for coronavirus – and those people are obviously wrong. 

‘There’s a lot funny about this. Maybe not from a moral standpoint, but mathematically, if you were constructing a joke… The problem is it’s almost too funny. It’s so on the nose! 

‘It’d be like if I were making fun of people who wear belts and then my pants just immediately fell down.’ 

Just two days before testing positive for coronavirus, Donald Trump mocked Joe Biden for his use of a mask.

Saturday Night Live airs weekly on NBC in the US.
