“Saturday Night Live” took on the 2020 presidential election once again this week by mocking Wednesday’s vice presidential debate between Sen.
Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence. As with the real-life debate, it was the fly that landed atop Pence’s head that got most of the screen time in the cold open Saturday.The show enlisted Jim Carrey once again to play Joe Biden as he decides to teleport to the debate to “save the soul of this nation.” From there, the sketch turned into a parody.
