Iconic comedian Dana Carvey guest hosted on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night TV program Monday and — yikes! — made fun of President Joe Biden in his monologue.
The politically far-left Kimmel was slammed for conducting what many said was a softball interview with Biden last month, so Carvey poking fun at the president — even mildly — might seem like treading on dangerous ground.
But even hardcore leftists adore the lovable comedian and his spot-on impressions, so fortunately, the crowd appeared to be with him the whole way.
What did Carvey say about Biden?
The “Saturday Night Live” alum warmed up everyone with a very brief impression of former President George H.W. Bush — arguably his most famous bit — and added some material featuring long-gone characters such as Garth from “Wayne’s World” and the Church Lady.
Carvey then poked fun at Biden’s “fist bump heard round the world” with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud.
“A lot of people are mad with President Biden because of the way he greeted the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia,” Carvey observed. “You know Biden called him a ‘pariah’ and as recently as last month said he wouldn’t even meet with him. But this weekend there they were, bro-ing it out: ‘How’s it hanging?’ ‘Oh, how’s it hanging under that robe?””
Carvey added that “Joe got a lot of flak for this, but I think we’re looking at this the wrong way, because if you slow it down and watch [the video of the fist bump] again, I think Biden was actually trying to punch MBS. Look! He’s going in for the jab! ‘Yeah, how bout a knuckle sandwich. C’mon!’”
He added that Americans were “so on edge” after four years of former President Donald Trump — to whom he referred to as “Shouty McFat Pants” — and wanted a “grandpa president,” and that Biden fit the bill, as he was “like a soothing grandpa offering you butterscotch from his coin purse” when he first campaigned.
“And he’s always repeating the story, ‘Yeah went to Scranton. Grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania. My dad. My dad lost his job. No joke! I’m not kidding around here!’” The crowd cracked up at Carvey’s Biden cadence, after which he noted that “no human being in the world thinks that’s a joke. Nobody.”
“And then he would do the number thing,” Carvey observed, imitating Biden nonsensically saying, “Number one, the one part! Number two, what the guy said! Number three, you know the drill!, C’mon!” After which Carvey deadpanned, “No, we don’t.”
“Now what he does is he kind of whispers, and then he yells,” Carvey said of the president’s now-famous oratory habit. “I think it’s a wonderful move. Don’t you love it when he’s like, [whispering] ‘We know how to get natural gas’ [shouting] ‘Cause we can get it! We know how to get it! That’s what we do!'”
Carvey then mocked Biden by mumbling unintelligibly before arriving at a strangely fitting shout out to “The Pirates of the Caribbean!”
