This video is a little old — it’s from March 8, when President Biden announced the promotion of two female generals. It was clipped by a YouTube account called “The News Junkie’s Cartoons” and is making the rounds on Twitter today. Anyway, for all of the comedians who are “struggling” to parody Biden — an almost impossible task because “people tend to find him likable” and “his ticks aren’t that interesting” — here’s a clip of the preparation that went into airing Biden’s speech, including the positioning of the box Vice President Harris stands on.
This has got to be a movie ? ? .
Hollywood can’t write this good.

All 45 years of SNL sketches combined never achieved this level of absurdity.

Never been a bigger disaster in the history of this country. It’s so surreal. Twilight Zone-like. Nightmare. What an embarrassment.

Guy is making 100k a year and has six degrees…to sanitize the podium.

And move Harris’s apple crate into place.
It’s a skit for SNL. They are auditioning. Epic FAIL.

It’s edited, but it’s real.
Is anyone going to mention the guy moved who moved the step stool for Harris had more podium time than she did… that was the weirdest introduction I’ve ever seen. she really needed a 3 ring binder to do the intro?? pic.twitter.com/oXs8Dr9GOs

We wonder what the cleaning guy’s actual title is.
This is the video that finally convinced me they will remove their rubber masks and reveal reptile faces.

For the record, here’s the video from YouTube. The comments are still edited, but the lectern preparation is intact:
