“Saturday Night Live” poked fun at the classified documents scandal engulfing President Biden, but the most biting humor was reserved for his Veep.
‘SNL’s Mikey Day played Attorney General Merrick Garland, kicking things off with a speech about how former Trump VP Mike Pence found classified docs at his Indiana home. Kenan Thompson, as an FBI agent, followed with a few wisecracks about Pence.
Then came the bit about Kamala Harris …comedian Ego Nwodim, playing an FBI agent, bluntly said: ‘Come on now. Joe Biden won’t even give this woman a pen. You think she has classified documents? Please, Kamala Harris with classified documents.”
Ego then walked away as Day returned to the mic, adding…”Well, we had to at least check.”
Funny skit, but it also had to sting, since it implied Joe didn’t trust Kamala enough to share the nation’s secrets. Harris, as you know, has been dogged by criticism about her competence in her role as second in command.
Of course, Joe isn’t the only president under federal investigation for mishandling classified docs. His predecessor, Donald Trump, has been embroiled in an ongoing battle with the feds over this very issue since he left office over two years ago, and Trump has been anything but cooperative.
