Joe Biden’s approval ratings have been stuck underwater since last year.
That’s one of the main reasons why Democrats are bracing to get pummeled in the 2022 midterms.
And Saturday Night Live just completely torched Biden and the Democrats.
Saturday Night Live hardly ever attacks Democrats, especially during the Donald Trump years.
The show became a variety act for the Democratic Party.
Former cast member Kate McKinnon held back tears on stage in response to the news of Trump defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.
However, in the current season of SNL, the show has already gone after the Democrats twice.
The long-running series mocked the farcical January 6th hearings, and the most recent episode exposed the fact that Joe Biden is an incredibly weak president, but the Democrats have no bench.
The sketch was presented as a trailer for a horror film.
A character recoils in horror when a news anchor reports, “In political news, President Biden has said he intends to run for re-election in 2024.”
The sketch then eviscerates all of the weak candidates the Democrats have put forward, and the characters resign themselves to the fact that Biden is their best shot in 2024 despite how bad he has been as president.

Comedy works best when it’s grounded in truth, and that sketch was on the money.
For example, Biden’s age is a serious area of concern.
He’s already showing significant signs of mental decline, and he turns 82 years old shortly after Election Day 2024.
He constantly makes gaffes, slurs his words, forgets people’s names, and even forgets if people are alive or dead.
If he’s struggling to speak cogently now, it’s only going to get worse.
The show mocked Cory Booker for being “corny,” which was on full display during his cringeworthy “I am Spartacus” moment during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
He was desperate to manufacture a political “moment,” and he couldn’t do it.
Beto O’Rourke also caught flak in the sketch.
The Democrats attempted to turn him into a national figure after he lost a close Senate race to Ted Cruz in Texas.
But O’Rourke failed to launch, and he’s become a sad gubernatorial candidate desperate to keep his political career alive.
He thought it was a good idea to say that “hell yes” he wanted to take away people’s rifles.
Kamala Harris and her unsettling Joker laugh are a total nonstarter, as evidenced by her pathetic performance in the 2020 Democratic Primary.
She was forced to bow out of the race before she even made it to her home state of California, where she was projected to lose.
The Democrats were compelled to run Biden in 2020 for a reason, and none of the facts on the ground have really changed.
Democrats have a shockingly weak bench, and they have not developed any future candidates that could potentially win a national election.
They might be forced to wheel Biden out there again in 2024 because they have no one else.
