The treatises… they come together! We all knew Saturday Night Live was determined to tackle Aaron Rodgers’ “woke mob” anti-vaxx meltdown, and it turns out their favorite cast was none other than the one whose hotness is making headlines again. On Saturday night, Davidson channeled the NFL player in a sit-down with SNL‘Jeanine Pirro’, Cecily Strong.
“It’s your body, your choice,” Strong’s Pirro told her guest, “and please don’t use that quote for any other problem.”
“It’s my body and my COVID,” replied Davidson. “I can give it to whoever I want. But suddenly the awake crowd is after me. It’s so bad that State Farm called and they don’t even give me the Rodgers rate!”
“I never lied,” he added. “I took all my teammates together, held their faces two inches away from my wet mouth and said, ‘Trust me, I’m more or less immunized. Go team!'”
Finally? “People can talk all they want, but in the end my record is still seven in one — meaning out of the eight people I’ve infected, seven are okay.”
Saturday also ushered in the reign of a new Donald Trump SNL, viral impersonator James Austin Johnson – who also appeared in “Jeanine’s Justice” to narrate, among other things, his contributions to Governor Elect Glenn Youngkin’s campaign. (“Glenn’s a great guy, but those PC people, oh my god, PC cops. They don’t like him – they don’t like him at all!”)
This week’s host is Kieran Culkin, who carved his first SNL cameo in November 1991 during an episode hosted by his older brother Macaulay – a memory he relived onstage with helpful (and cute) photo tools.
