SNL Sparks Outrage After People Notice What Was Missing From First Show Of 2021

“Saturday Night Live” did not continue their typical politics skit in their most recent show, according to Fox News.

After four years of constant Trump mockery, SNL did not follow up with a Biden skit.

Its cold open skewered Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Mark Zuckerberg and Tom Brady while the show’s “Weekend Update” segment commented on the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“Even a Saturday Night Live is bored with Biden and didn’t mention him once!” one user wrote.

“What ..NO bashing the President on SNL?? That’s unheard of..we tolerated the weekly bashing, impersonations, disgusting Alec Baldwin & a slew of other unfunnies, denigrating President Trump..Now Biden & Harris are NEVER parodied! No skits, no impersonations..NADA!” another wrote.

“I would like to see Jim Carey again play Biden, he is funny. Are we going to see making fun of President Biden anytime soon like when SNL made fun of Trump and other Presidents while they were in office? A spin-off signing stacks of exec orders would be a funny piece!” another person wrote.

“Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…comedy’s highest call of duty,” Carrey tweeted ahead of Moffat’s debut. “I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that s—. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!”

From Fox News:

The show had a lot of ground to cover after being off during an eventful time in U.S. politics. January alone included the riots, a historic second impeachment of Trump and the GameStop surge that’s thrown Wall Street through a loop. Still, despite the inauguration and Biden’s first week in office also happening during the show’s break, many critics of the show noticed that “SNL” didn’t seem interested in roasting the sitting president the same way it did when Trump was in the oval.

Although Biden has only been president for a week and the show has only premiered one episode in 2021, many seem convinced that “Saturday Night Live” will never mock Biden or Harris. However, the show was not shy about regularly parodying both politicians during the campaign.
