Pete Davidson’s Aaron Rodgers Is Back On ‘SNL’ — To Help With Kremlin Disinformation
Davidson’s Packers quarterback, who put his teammates at risk by fibbing about being vaccinated and contracting COVID-19, stars in an ad in which his car has broken down in Ukraine.
“Like a good neighbor, Russia is there,” Davidson croons in a nod to Rodgers’ gig as a State Farm insurance pitchman.
Back in the Oval Office, James Austin Johnson’s Joe Biden initially shrugs off Kremlin disinformation because he insists that it hasn’t worked in the past. But a military commander (Kenan Thompson) reminds him that 40% of Americans “think you lost the election, so it kinda did.”
Biden checks out some fake headlines floated by a savvy Kremlin, including: “Ukrainian Border Encroaching on Russian Troops,” “American CDC Strongly Recommends Russia Invade Ukraine” and “Neil Young to Remove Music from Spotify Unless Ukraine Surrenders.”
In another ad, a couple of fake Ukrainian students (Andrew Dismukes and Kate McKinnon) dream of all the opportunities in Russia “mining arsenic and potash.”
