Pete Davidson transformed into Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers to take on the football star’s COVID-19 diagnosis and his defiant refusal to be vaccinated on the cold open of “Saturday Night Live” in a parody episode of Fox News’ “Justice With Judge Jeanine.”

Cecily Strong, playing Jeanine Pirro, introduces “Rodgers” as an American brave enough to say: “Screw you, science. I know [conspiracy theorist] Joe Rogan.”

“You’re not vaccinated. So what?” she tells Davidson. “Who the hell cares? It’s your body, your choice. And please never use that quote for any other issue.”

“Exactly Jeanine, it’s my body and my COVID. … I can give it to whoever I want,” replies Davidson. “But suddenly the woke mob is coming after me.”

“Pirro” challenges him: “Straight talk, Aaron, because I never talk gay. Did you ever lie about being vaccinated?”

He insists: “I never lied. I took all my teammates into a huddle, got all their faces 3 inches away from my wet mouth and told them, ‘Trust me, I’m more or less immunized. Go team!’”

People can “talk all they want, but at the end of the day, my record is still 7-1, meaning of the eight people I’ve infected, seven are fine.”
