SNL FINALLY goes for Joe as 47th season premieres


SNL FINALLY goes for Joe: Biden’s Afghan debacle and budget dumpster fire are skewered as Kyrsten Sinema, AOC, Joe Manchin and Gov. Cuomo all offer pointless advice to the embattled president


The new season of Saturday Night Live opened with a sketch poking fun at President Joe Biden and the division within the Democratic party

Owen Wilson opened the 47th season of the live comedy sketch show after last season saw record low ratings. 

Wilson as Biden, began by asking ‘How was everyone’s summer? Mine was bad.’

He was then joined by other Democrats: Senator Krysten Sinema played by Cecliy Strong, Senator Joe Manchin played by Aidy Bryant, Representative Ilhan Omar played by Ego Nwodim, and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez played by Melissa Villasenor, who noted her controversial ‘Tax the Rich’ Met Gala dress. 

The Democrats all argued about the child tax credit, roads, water, prescription drugs, and raising taxes. 

They were then joined by disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo played by Pete Davidson who asked for another chance and tried to play off his sexual assault allegations, ‘You know what Italians like to do? Hug and kiss.’  

Chuck Schumer played by Alex Moffat joined in at the end completing the group of disagreeing Democrats.  

Kasey Musgraves is set to perform following the release of her second album, Star-Crossed.
