There's just not a ton of stuff for them to work with right now because policy-specific jokes are kind of a snoozefest.

You just gave the writers a great idea.
A sketch where the Fox new team acts like the asses they are and points out the huge double standards as a comedy tool.

I literally voted for Biden to be "President of the United States." Also, SNL already went through this last November: they were worried that Biden wouldn't be fodder for satire, so they contented themselves knowing that the Republican Party and Trump would be funnier. So ... the cold open was literally had Kate McKinnon interviewing people such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, among others.

I thought they weren't taking pot shots at Biden because they didn't have anyone to play him after Jim Carrey bailed.

SNL had Donald Trump as the host while he was running for President. But that was A-OK.

I don't remember that. Still, an appearance isn't quite the same as hosting the entire show.

I'll give you that. At least SNL and NBC caught a lot of heat over it.
I got to thinking there's been more than a few Presidential candidates on over the years, and google tells me there were 17!

Hilary showed up one of the times while Amy Poehler was impersonating her, both dressed the same.

Mock Biden for what? Not playing golf every day?

In a stunning coincidence, Biden and Harris are NOT LAUGHABLY INEPT AND TRANSPARENTLY CORRUPT.

Anyone who watches Fox News and wants to express their opinion about anything should first attempt to drink a gallon of bleach before they share their ideas. Scientifically this will make their arguments clean and, therefore, valid.

Do it.

Someone ought to explain to the suits at Fox Noise that their man is a tragically ignorant buffoon who is naturally ripe for satire and parody, while the normal president, the one we have now, is 99 percent not.

What are we going to do, make fun of him because he likes to ride the train? He started doing that for an intensely personal reason, did he not?
 
2021-02-01 10:45:52 PM  
Is it because Biden hasn't done anything worth mocking yet? I imagine he will, at some point. Give the man time to work.

Fox doesn't even pretend it's news anymore. It's just the stupidest farking take possible on literally everything.

Fox News just did an article based off of people's tweeting how SNL didn't have any jokes about Biden. Nowhere in said article or tweets were any examples of what a joke about Biden could be about.

There. I summed up the article for those that have better things to do with their time.

another thing.  They would just laugh at the jokes.  Biden and Harris wouldn't be on twitter the next day rage tweeting about it.

Hell, I am sure at some point Kamala and Maya Rudolph will pull the same bit as Hillary and Amy Proehler mentioned upthread.

I read "Fox News" and I think of wet fart noises and bad diarrhea sounds after strong laxatives or too many sugar-free gummies. Fox News... all the relevance of a liquid shart. Smell it. Taste it.
Gag a couple times and spit up in your mouth.
Flush it, immediately. A courtesy flush, if you will.
Turn on the fan....

In SNL's defense, it is kind of hard to ridicule people that act normal and competent. FOX News tried it with the "Half Hour News Hour", but even their own viewers who were in on the jokes found it lame.
 
2021-02-01 10:52:31 PM  
 Any joke you can make about Biden is tenfold true about trump
 
2021-02-01 10:52:53 PM  
The writers probably don't know what to make fun of. It's been a week and a half and Biden is... helping? Not the greatest source of humor.

I've gotten so used to the President being a complete farking moron that I'm still adjusting. I bet they are, too. Last year they had a President who wanted to shine a flashlight up our asses. Now they've got one who uh, slips up on words?
 
2021-02-01 10:53:06 PM  
Been said so many times, but . . .

Hey Fox, you have a tv channel, don't cha! Go for it! Start your own comedy show! Be all boot strappy and job creationy. It will be great! You could recruit for writers off of Parler and whatever 8chan is now. I'll bet you'll find some really hilarious jokesters there! You still have Dennis Miller's number? Give him a call! Bring in Piscopo and Jackson. For your first show, you could have Ben Shapiro or Nick Fuentes host. Those guys arehilarious. Come on! What are you waiting for? Make America Laugh Again!
 
2021-02-01 10:53:22 PM  
Maybe if Biden inappropriately touches Kamala or stumbles around with his words worse than W. did or gets a blowjob from an intern, maybe then they'll have something to work with.

But I gotta say, ever since he became president, hell, even before then, the typical gaffe machine he used to be just hasn't been.  It's like a switch went off on his head.  He's wanted this his whole life, basically, and he's really embraced it.  So far, so good.  He isn't even as conservative as many of us feared he'd be.

Biden was a lot easier to parody when he was VP cause we could pretend that Onion version of him was real. The one where he hangs out with biker gangs, wrassles gators in the Everglades, and wonders around the White House in boxers, flip-flops, and a can of Natty Ice, cause the VP doesn't really do anything. Now that he's Prez and he's actually doing stuff, it's kind of hard to keep up that image.

You missed the suggestion of "Biden signing stacks of executive orders."

Why are people saying this? Anyone who has watched the show over the years knows that they find things to mock every President about, their whole term(s).

Omfg this. For all the shiat that has happened the last four years, how did Bonespurs' colossal lack of a sense of human not set off every farking alarm in the tiny brains of every last knuckle dragging rube out there?

I'm just glad they've settled on a regular as Biden. Making Baldwin their Trump no doubt limited what they could do with the character.

Give the writers a little time to figure him out. They never really nailed him down during the campaign, which is odd because intuitively the man seems like a comedy gold mine. But now that he's in office, he'll surely give them some kind of material to work with. SNL has a proud tradition of skewering Presidents, even the unskewerable Obama.

Dear GOP,

When the jokes just write themselves stops being true about you, you will be the butt of far fewer jokes from SNL and the like. You are the low-hanging fruit.
