It was Mike Pence and Kamala Harris’ turn this week.
“Good evening, I’m Susan Page, and I missed the book club for this,” said Kate McKinnon, who plays the moderator. “Tonight you will notice that among the candidates we installed sneeze guards in buffet style at the expense of one of you working for Patient Zero.”
Then McKinnon Page posed her first question to Bennett Pence.
“The topic is the Coronavirus,” she said.
Pence replied from Bennett, “Damn it.”
Harris Bennett of Rudolph and Pence Bennett joked back and forth before touching on President Trump’s health.
“As I’ve heard from his lead physician, Dr. Handsom Lear, Trump is in peak physical condition,” Bennett said.
Then Harris accused Rudolph of not taking a possible vaccine for the Coronavirus.
“Look, if Dr. Fauci said the vaccine is good, I would be first in line as if it was selling a sample from Ann Taylor,” she said. “But if Trump says it is safe, I would throw that vaccine in the trash like last week’s Thai shrimp dish.”
But the “SNL” VP debate was more than just Harris and Pence. It also featured Joe Biden watching actor Jim Carrey at home.
He said, “I want to do something, I need to immediately move into this debate and save the soul of this nation.”
Then Biden got into Carrie’s teleportation machine, which accidentally turned him into a fly that landed on Penny’s head in the debate.
She quickly turned it into Jeff Goldblum, who starred in the 1986 movie The Fly.
“God created the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs became a republic. The Republicans created Trump,” Carrie said, impersonating Gulblum. “Life finds its way.”
After more flies ended up on Pence’s head, “I think we need to close this debate for the good of humanity,” said MacKinnon Page.
Rudolph’s Harris then used a flytrap to hit the fly on the head of a penny, and the show began with the signature phrase, “Live … from New York! It’s Saturday night!”
