At the very last minute, James Austin Johnson’s Joe Biden tried to put some “sizzle” into the Democratic slate of midterm candidates on “Saturday Night Live’s” cold open.
“Big yikes,” he commented about Tuesday’s election. “Folks, I’m trying like hell, I promise,” said “Biden.” “I’m on the Peloton every morning tempting fate.”
He pulled in new Pennsylvania Senate candidate celeb chef Guy Fieri (Molly Kearney), who took the opportunity to mock GOP rival Dr. Mehmet Oz over his tone-deaf gripe about the rising cost of crudité.
“Unlike Dr. Oz, this guy’s got political experience. He was the mayor of ‘flavortown’ for over 20 years!” “Biden” crowed about Fieri.
Other candidate options: Stormy Daniels (Cecily Strong), Tekashi 6ix9ine (Marcello Hernández), Azealia Banks (Ego Nwodim) and Tracy Morgan (Kenan Thompson).
“Biden” cheered: “Let’s go, team. We’re gonna be fine!”
