Joe Biden is yet to be sworn in and he already has a successor – “Saturday Night Live”.
On its last show of the year, the late-night comedy show revealed cast member Alex Moffat as the new “SNL” president-elect – hours after comedian Jim Carrey announced on Twitter that he would cast as Biden Was retiring from his short tenure.
“Although my term was only 6 weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL president … the highest call of comedy duty,” Carrie tweeted earlier on Saturday. “I’d love to know that Biden was the winner because I caught that S — but I’m in a long queue of pride while fighting SNL Bidens!”
Wearing an open, orthopedic boot in the cold Saturday, Moffat stepped onto the stage with a cane – exactly as a real-life Biden began the game after suffering a hairline fracture in one of his legs, reportedly with his dog.
Moffat’s Biden then dropped the cane and did a sorcerle in the style of Willy Wonka.

“You look different,” Beck Bennett as vice president Mike Pence told Biden.
“I like Colonel Sanders, every time you see me I’m a different man,” Moffat replied. “This time there’s a good chance I’m going to be Mario Lopez next year.”
Vice-President Kamala Harris, played by Maya Rudolph, said that she pushed Biden to get immunized against the coronovirus as soon as possible because she is worried about him.
“Especially since you’re in a cast in the minus-40 office on the very first day,” she said.
Biden of Moffat reminded Americans that they are “again to be a de facto leader” with “the most diverse cabinet in the history of American politics”.
Harris then assured that he would never specify to Biden what he meant by “miscellaneous.”

“Or if you celebrate Kavanza,” Moffat suggested, referencing the African-American holiday that begins next weekend.
“No, we’re about to leave,” Rudolph replied, urging him to the stage.
Bennett’s pence receiving the coronovirus vaccine on the camera focuses the cold. “I’m sure all Americans are excited to see me, the man who let COVID spread everywhere, get one of the first vaccines,” Bennett said.
