Jim Carrey streamed “Ace Ventura” in the opening to “Saturday Night Live”, calling President Donald Trump “loser” in the 2020 election.
Carrey described President-elect Joe Biden giving a speech of victory with Maya Rudolph as Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, calling on his supporters to be “kind.” But Rudolph’s Harris asked if she could rub it in just a little bit, and played the song “Lose Yo Job”; on her phone as they danced.
“Unfortunately, there are situations in life, and this is one of them where there must be winners and winners,” Carrey said on Saturday night as Rudolph struggled to keep his face straight.
This is the first episode of “SNL” since the presidential race called pro-Biden on Saturday morning. The former vice president and former Syracuse Law College student won victories in Pennsylvania and Nevada, placing him in the position of 290 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 214; Biden also leads with more than 4 million popular votes.
Alec Baldwin has re-established his role as President Trump, declaring that he is giving his own “winning speech” and reiterating unfounded statements that “election was cheated ”. He performed a slow, sad piano piece of Village People’s “Macho Man,” which was played at Trump rallies.
“This is not goodbye to America, this is your next time in court,” said Baldwin’s Trump.
But in real life, Baldwin said he was very happy that he was about to lose his job. Baldwin, 62, has been playing Trump on “SNL” since 2016, winning the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a comedy series.
“I don’t believe I was this happy when I lost my job before!” The actor wrote on Twitter on Saturday afternoon.
It is unclear how long Carrey and Harris will stay as Biden and Rudolph. Carrey was a member of another sketch comedy show, “In Living Color”, from 1990 to 1994 before making a breakout role in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” Rudolph was a member of “SNL” from 2000 to 2007, but has returned several times as a guest.
Other highlights from the episode “SNL” include the long, edgy monologue by host Dave Chappelle, who hosted the sketch comedy show after Trump’s victory in 2016; musical performance by Foo Fighters; and skits about a hail in the fictitious suburbs of Albany, Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are fired.
