Asia's Tech News Daily

“Saturday Night Live” harkened back to President Biden’s days as vice president with host Jason Sudeikis reprising his role as Biden in the show’s latest episode.

“SNL” opened with James Austin Johnson playing Biden and asking White House press secretary Jen Psaki, played by Chloe Fineman, for some facts.

In the skit, Psaki relays to Biden that “no one” watched his CNN town hall last week and his approval ratings are “in the dumpster.”

“Ice-cold Psaki bomb,” Biden responds in dismay.

Biden’s job approval have fallen in recent weeks as key legislative bills stall in Congress. His current ratings are hovering around 40 percent, according to polls from Quinnipiac and Gallup.

“I don’t understand. People used to like me. The press would call me ‘Uncle Joe.’ I miss the old me, where the hell did that guy go?” Johnson’s Biden asks.

Jason Sudeikis then walks on in a flash of light, dressed as his version of Vice President Joe Biden. Sudeikis was a cast member of “SNL” for eight years beginning in 2005, during which time he often portrayed an immature, fun-loving caricature of Biden.

When Johnson, playing the current Biden, asks who Sudeikis is, Sudeikis boisterously responds, “I’m you! I’m you from eight years ago man. The ghost of Biden’s past.”

“How can you be me? You seem so happy, so carefree, so… what’s the word I’m looking for?” Johnson’s Biden asks.

“Lucid!” Sudeikis replies. “Where I’m from, we’re still VP you know? Easiest gig in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor. Just pop in with an ice cream cone, some aviator shades and some finger guns. You know, shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders.”

When Johnson informs Sudeikis that they cannot rub shoulders anymore, the vice presidential version of Biden advises him to “loosen up,” rubbing his shoulders and sniffing his neck, a reference to Biden’s previous conduct, which many said violated the personal space of others, particularly women.

As Sudeikis’s Biden prepares to leave, Johnson’s character bemoans that he “can’t do this without you.”

In parting words of encouragement, Sudeikis says, “I want you to stand tall, I want you to flash those 100 percent natural choppers we got and remember we may be from different eras, but at the end of the day we’re both Joe freaking Biden.”
