In a mock movie trailer for a cheesy, Rated R, horror film complete with the cliche ominous narrator, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” mocked, sort of, President Biden, but was far more harsh on Democrats who might replace him on the 2024 ticket.
“Sometimes a familiar face can be the most terrifying,” the voiceover says in the clip embedded above about the make-believe movie “from the producers of ‘Smile’ and the twisted minds at ‘Morning Joe,'” while an actress initially reacts in fear to a TV report about Biden’s intention to run for a second term.
Her boyfriend then hyperventilates that Biden may not be able to beat Fla. GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, if that is the matchup.
The same actress later wonders, “If Biden’s not going to run, who will?”
The narrator then chimes in, “Just when you thought the terror was over, you realize it’s just beginning,” and the group of friends in the house began panicking about possible Dem candidates like Kamala Harris, “corny” Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke, and Bernie Sanders.
With Halloween around the corner, the trailer spoofs the typically trope-filled horror genre where a terrified 20-something cohort is under siege by seen or unseen creatures (which includes themselves at times) in a dark, isolated house.
Events typically occur in the middle of the night with the requisite lightning and thunder outside.
Humor is subjective, so watch the clip and draw your own conclusions.
The satire concludes, however, that given the unacceptable alternatives, Biden is the best candidate, apparently because of “student debt relief, holding NATO together, and the infrastructure bill,” which is perhaps the most unintentionally funny part of the entire presentation.
The primary issue with Biden seems to be that he fell off his bike, according to the SNL, relatively soft-on-POTUS presentation.
SNL preemptively reverted to form with a very lame cold open that parodied stodgy PBS conducting an interview that lampooned “politically inexperienced” GOP candidates Herschel Walker, Dr. Oz, and Kari Lake (as if that’s a negative).
Even though the segment was hardly funny, if not forced, the SNL in-studio audience seemed to react like trained seals in the way that an enthusiastic West Coast crowd similarly used to respond to HBO host Bill Maher’s monologues before he began departing, even slightly, from the progressive narrative.
Back in August, SNL alum Rob Schneider, previously a lifelong Democrat, implied that SNL was dead, rather than live, from New York, to borrow the show’s signature catchphrase, because of pervasive left-wing propaganda.
Specifically referring to the November 2016 cringe cold open by very-left cast member Kate McKinnon — which was apparently meant to be a tribute to election loser Hillary Clinton — Schneider told Glenn Beck the following:
“There was no joke at the end, and I went, ‘it’s over; it’s over.’ It’s not gonna come back. It’s gone. You can take the ‘comedy routines,’ you can take the comedic indoctrination process happening with each of the late-night hosts, and you can exchange them with each other. That’s how you know it’s not interesting anymore.”

Some chatter has emerged that SNL, which is no longer a ratings powerhouse as it was back in the day when it concentrated on legitimate entertainment rather than liberal political activism, may finally go off the air once its longtime showrunner, Lorne Michaels, 77, decides to retire.
