Joe Biden Wins Presidential Election 2020 Over Donald Trump: Celebs React
Carrey, 58, and Rudolph, 48, poked fun at the election on the Saturday, November 7, episode of the NBC sketch comedy show, which was hosted by Dave Chappelle.
“We did it. Can you believe it? I actually kind of can’t. It’s been so long since something good happened,” Carrey said imitating Biden’s first speech as President-elect.
Later, Rudolph stepped in to address the nation as Harris, 56. “Like Joe, I am humbled and honored to be the first female, the first Black, the first Indian-American, and the first biracial vice president. And if any of that terrifies you, I don’t give a funt,” the comedian said. “Also, my husband will be the first second gentleman and he’s Jewish so, between us, we check more boxes than a disqualified ballot.”
Rudolph added, “And to all the Black and brown girls watching right now, I just want to say this: the reason your mom is laughing so much tonight is because she’s drunk, and the reason she’s crying is because she’s drunk.”

The duo then joined together to celebrate their win. “We’re not going to stand here and gloat, we’re not rubbing our victories in everybody’s face. We humbly accept this victory,” Carrey’s Biden said to which Rudolph replied, “Well, a tiny bit?” before they both danced to a song playing on her phone.
Alec Baldwin also returned to reprise his role as President Donald Trump. The actor, 62, bid farewell with a rendition of the Village People’s “Macho Man.”
Hours earlier, Baldwin reacted to the election news tweeting, “I don’t believe I’ve ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before!”
