'Saturday Night Live' returns from winter break with its Joe Biden blaming the surge of Omicron on Spider-Man

We’re in the middle of a cold, 黑暗的冬天,” James Austin Johnson as President Joe Biden said kicking off this weekend’s “周六夜现场。” “这个冬天好黑, Republicans don’t think it should vote.

Johnson’s Biden then explained this virus has disrupted our lives, the holidays, gender reveal parties andwildfires that started as gender reveal parties.
但, 他说, there is one simple thing that could make all of this go away.
    Stop seeing Spider-Man,” Johnson’s Biden told the American people. “考虑一下, when did Spider-Man come out? 十二月 17. When did every single person get Omicron? The week after December 17.
      He then took questions from the press.
          Ego Nwodim’s reporter asked if he was really blaming the Omicron variant of coronavirus on “蜘蛛侠: No Way Home,” 哪一个 broke box office records 上个月.
          “是, 我做了,” 他回应. “Next question.
          Bowen Yang’s reporter asked if Biden believed Covid would end if people stopped going to the movies.
          I didn’t say stop going to the movies,” Johnson’s Biden said. “I said stop seeing Spider-Man. You can see anything else.
          He explained that he, 例如, saw the first half hour ofHouse of Gucciand that wasenough movie for anyone.
          Another reporter, played by Heidi Gardner, asked if this theory was based on any kind of data.
          “是, everyone in America has seen Spider-Man like eight times,” Johnson’s Biden said. “Everyone in America also has Covid. Stop seeing Spider-Man.
          Johnson’s Biden then said he hasn’t seen the movie because he couldn’t get tickets.
          Yang’s reporter asked about problems with testing and the rise of cases.
          You want to know if you have Covid,” Johnson’s Biden said. “Look at your hand. Is it holding a ticket to Spider-Man? 如果是这样的话, you have Covid.
          Biden also blamed inflation and the inability to pass the voting rights bill on the Spider-Man movie.
          He then took a final question, which was if there’s a version of Biden in the multiverse who *wants* people to see “蜘蛛侠: 无路回家。”
          “最后, a good question,” Johnson’s Biden said. “其实, I thought about this a lot. I’ve consulted with Dr. Fauci and Doctor Strange. As far as I can tell, there’s at least three Joe Bidens.
            Pete Davidson then showed up from a different universe as the real Joe Biden saying that this universe was about to collapse.
            Hurry before the portal closes,” Davidson’s Biden said before saying the show’s signature catch phrase, “生活… 从纽约出发, it’s Saturday Night.
