Saturday Night Live returned from a four-week hiatus this week with a vacation message from Kate McKinnon’s Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“Do people still think I’m sexy or are we done with that?” Fauci started. “With COVID cases on the rise, people still have a lot of questions: ‘Is it safe to travel? Can I still use this as an excuse to get out of stuff? I would like to never work again.’”
To reply these queries, Fauci introduced a collection of more and more absurd eventualities that started with fundamental conditions like indoor eating and air journey and shortly escalated to incorporate outstanding figures just like the “two unemployed” Cuomo brothers and the objectively worst members of Congress.
“Hello, I’m disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo,” Pete Davidson stated together with his “disgraced” brother Chris Cuomo by his facet. “And we both lost our jobs… because of COVID.”

Next up have been Republican Congresswomen Lauren Boebert (Chloe Fineman) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (Cecily Strong), each carrying semi-automatic rifles. “The government has been using this fake disease to strip us of our freedoms. Do they think we’re dumb?” Greene requested, to which Boebert replied, “Please, would they give a dumb person a gun? Yes.”
“First, they said the shutdowns were until they found a vaccine,” Greene continued. “Then they found a vaccine and said it worked. Then they said everyone should get it. Then people got it and it saved their lives. If that’s not communism, then honey, I might not know what communism is.”
“So Merry Christmas, and remember,” Boebert concluded. “Guns don’t kill people, people people people.”

And lastly, Fauci was joined by Aidy Bryant’s Ted Cruz, who advised viewers, ”Hey, when you’re sick of seeing me, think about how sick I’m of being me.”
