Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden and Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton turned up for a Halloween cold open on “Saturday Night Live” scared to death about Election Day.
“It’s a spooky time filled with demons and darkness — also, it’s Halloween,” quipped Carrey’s Biden from a chair in a haunted mansion with creepy decorations he said were from Melania Trump’s Christmas display.
For some Trump voters, “it’s the only time they’ll wear a mask,” he added.
People are “excited to vote, but very, very, very worried about the outcome,” Biden admitted.
“But don’t worry! They say I’m 8 points ahead. Poll numbers like that can only go wrong once in a blue moon,” soothed Carrey as he glanced over his shoulder at a blue moon.
As Carrey read a parody of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” McKinnon’s Clinton showed up like a ghost of Halloween past to warn him that Democrats have lost before.
But Carrey shook off the doom and gloom, declaring: “I will win because I’m a baller; just ask my running mate Kamala,” mispronouncing her name to rhyme in his reading.
Cue Maya Rudolph with some advice: “Our nation will endure. … Use your voice and use your vote. Democracy will represent.”
Said Carrey: “In this daylight savings time, let’s gain an hour and lose a president.”
