Daily US Times: There was a scheduled presidential debate in this week, but in stead of that, it hosted two town halls between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) covered both of the town halls, by flipping back and forth between the two, like many viewers.

While kicking off the show, the announcer said: “One town hall was a thoughtful, cogent discussion of the issues facing our country. The other featured President Trump.”

SNL then took viewers to Biden’s town hall on ABC.

Biden, played by actor Jim Carrey, said: “I’ve given every audience member a glass of warm milk and a blanket.”

”Now, who’s ready to have some fun with some facts and figures?!”

The NBC variety show then flipped over to Trump’s town hall on NBC.

Guthrie, played by Kate McKinnon, said: “Good evening, America. I’m surprise bad ass Savannah Guthrie, and if you were angry with NBC for doing this town hall, just let me get a few questions in and I think you’ll thank me.”

Alec Baldwin’ Trump character then took the stage and was asked about tweeting conspiracy theories.

He said: “I didn’t tweet it. It was a retweet, which is short for a really smart tweet.”

Kate McKinnon’s Guthrie responded: “Okay, but you can’t just do things like that. You’re not just someone’s crazy uncle.”

Baldwin’s Trump shot back by saying: “Really? Because this conversation we’re having right now is a preview of Thanksgiving dinner.”

“So crazy uncles, stand back and stand by,” he added.

“SNL” then switched back to the Biden town hall.

“And that brings us to 1939, a year where I went the World’s Fair and met the real Mickey Mouse,” Biden (Carrey) could be heard answering a question.
