Saturday Night Live was handed a gift this week in the form of the Vice Presidential Debate. Former cast member Maya Rudolph was spot on as Kamala Harris and SNL regular Beck Bennett perfectly captured Mike Pence. The big question this week though was how the show would handle the now infamous debate fly. The Washington Post writes:
SNL obviously addressed the incident. And things got weird.

The other SNL must-watch this week comes from Michael Che and Colin Jost. During Weekend Update, the pair pushed the envelope when talking about Donald Trump’s claim that he recovered so quickly from coronavirus. Che joked:
“I’m not gonna say I’m disappointed, but it kind of feels like when there’s a car crash and the only survivor is the drunk driver… Actually, maybe we should be more optimistic about this. There are two ways we can look at it. Either Trump is telling the truth and we finally have a cure for COVID or Trump is lying and he’s still going to die. I’m not going to say that’s a win-win, but it’s definitely not a lose-lose.”
And Jost added:
“I have to say it’s amazing to watch a guy have a near-death experience and learn nothing from it. It’s like watching someone smoke through the hole in their neck.”
