卡尔森, 亚历克斯·莫法特(Alex Moffat)扮演, opened Saturday’s episode of the NBC variety sketch show with a quick run down of fear mongering non sequiturs likeis AOC hiding in your house right now? Wouldn’t put it past her” 和 “pronouns for dogs? C’mon. Everybody knows they’re boys.

“谢谢, 塔克. It’s a great day for 30% 美国的,” McKinnon as Graham said.

      I think he’s guilty as hell and the worst person I’ve ever met,” Bennett’s McConnell said. “God, that felt good. I’ve been holding that inside my neck for four years.
      Moffat’s Carlson then wrapped up his segment by saying the show’s famous catch phrase, “生活… 从纽约出发! It’s Saturday night!”
