“Between the candidates. we’ve installed buffet-style sneeze guards on account of one of you works for Patient Zero,” McKinnon’s Page says.
“It’s actually fine by me, Susan,” Bennett’s Pence responds. “Twelve feet apart and separated by plexiglass is how mother and I sleep.”
McKinnon then asks Pence her first question.
“Mr. Vice President, my first question is for you,” she says.
“Thank you,” he responds.
“The topic is coronavirus,” she goes on to say, to which Bennett’s Pence responds, “damnit.”
“Now, you were in charge of the coronavirus task force and since you took charge, over 200,000 Americans have died. How do you explain that?” she asks him, and Bennett’s Pence immediately responds by saying, “Well, Susan I’d like to begin by stalling hard.”
He then yields his time to Rudolph’s Harris, who begins speaking for several moments before Bennett’s Pence interrupts her.
“Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking,” she responds to cheers from the audience in a spoof of another viral moment from during the debate. “I’m speaking … See, I’m speaking right now. Estoy hablando Nevada, Arizona, some parts of Texas. I’m speaking.”
Minutes into the cold open, Carrey’s Biden then makes an appearance, watching the debate from home.
Upset with Bennett’s Pence interrupting his running mate, Carrey’s Biden then decided to teleport to the debate to “save the soul of this nation.”
Moments after entering his teleportation device, a fly is seen on the mechanism.
Then, during the spoof debate, a fly is seen on Pence’s head on stage.
“Let me at him,” Carrey’s Biden says as a fly on Pence’s head.
