‘SNL’ managed to walk the line Saturday night, with a hilarious cold open about TikTokers making the trek to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., advising the Prez on how to fight the Russians.
The premise — President Biden meets TikTok stars in the Oval for a brainstorming meeting on how to fight the Russian disinformation campaign and Putin himself. After all, these are influencers, so maybe they can influence the right folks.
It’s actually a real thing … White House officials briefed 30 social media influencers this week about the Russian invasion.
Well, in the skit, a CW actress goes all AnnaLynne McCord and suggests the best way to tame Putin is with a poem.
Not to be outdone, another TikToker suggests the solution is a prank … throwing Putin down a flight of stairs.
Another influencer seems to swing far right, as she suggests Hunter Biden started the war.
There’s a hysterical mix-up when a dude named Charles D’Amelio said he didn’t know why he was there, but he assumed they meant to invite Charli. Honest mistake … on his way out he asked if there were any extra stimi checks.
And then the influencer with the plunger … you just gotta watch it. Super funny.
If you don’t laugh, you cry, right?
