President Joe Biden (performed by Mikey Day) let Tian Tian the enormous panda (performed by Bowen Yang) avert reporters’ consideration from solutions to questions on world affairs and the 2024 election on “SNL” this weekend.
Day’s Biden – who continued a run of digs on the president’s age – celebrated “extra pandas” coming to the U.S. following his current assembly with Chinese language chief Xi Jinping.
Biden took questions on the parody press convention as he agreed that he would proceed referring to China’s chief as a “dictator” and even took a “pretend elevator” to keep away from a reporter’s inquiry on the U.S.-Mexico border.
However after Tian Tian joined the fake presser, he provided his two cents on a giant media distraction. “Am I the one one who was shocked that the presidents of the 2 largest economies on the planet met and everybody’s identical to: what’s up with the pandas?” Yang’s character requested.
The “SNL” reporters, nevertheless, didn’t appear to get his concern.
“President Biden, Trump’s staff has introduced that they’ll change all federal employees with Trump loyalists. My query is, panda, did you want America?” requested a mock “Axios” reporter.
