    SNL: Debate Spoof Cold Open

    This was hilarious, and all of the players did a fantastic job. (Jim Carrey as Biden is amazing)

    I also think they did a pretty decent job of keeping it from being TOO irreverent, given the circumstances of Trump in the hospital.

    Many of us wish we had that magic pause/mute button. LOL.

    There are a few politicians over the years that I can't look at without seeing the SNL people who impersonated them... Dana Carvey as Bush41 for instance. Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. The year 2000 duo of Bush43 (Will Farrell) and Al Gore (Darrell Hammond). I think SNLs best contribution to comedy has been its political satire.

    Or, in some cases, a remote-controlled trap door.

    Iím reading that the Critics didn't like for two reasons:

    1. It made both men look equally bad, when they believe that Trump behaved much worse
    2. The addition of Kamala Harris took the spotlight off the true problems with Trumpís multiple interruptions and refusal to denounce racism.
