It’s only right that the 2020 U.S. presidential election results were called on a Saturday, giving Saturday Night Live ample time to celebrate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ historic victory. Jim Carrey and Maya Rudolph returned to portray Biden and Harris. The cold open included a sketch of the CNN election results, poking fun at the ongoing coverage, before cutting to Jim Carrey.
“We did it. Can you believe it? I actually kind of can’t. It’s been so long since something good happened,” he said before Maya Rudolph took the stage. She added, “Like Joe, I am humbled and honored to be the first female, the first Black, the first Indian-American, and the first biracial vice president. And if any of that terrifies you, I don’t give a funt. Also, my husband will be the first second gentleman and he’s Jewish so, between us, we check more boxes than a disqualified ballot.”

She continued, “And to all the Black and brown girls watching right now, I just want to say this: The reason your mom is laughing so much tonight is because she’s drunk, and the reason she’s crying is because she’s drunk.”
That was just the beginning because celebrity guest Dave Chapelle also took the stage to deliver a hilarious monologue, mocking Trump’s refusal to concede. “Now Trump is gone,” he said. “Now I know a lot of people don’t like him, but I thought the guy was at least an optimist. I am not as optimistic as he was. I look at it, there’s bad people on both sides.” The crowd remained silent after he delivered that line and then he shook his head and jokingly added, “Alright, I was just trying it out.”
Alec Baldwin also returned to reprise his role as Trump. He sang the Village People’s “Macho Man” during his exit. If only Trump would have such a graceful concession.
