Saudi TV show pokes fun at Joe Biden and Kamala Harris


A Saudi TV show has mocked President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris with a “Saturday Night Live” style show.

The clip from the “Studio 22” show, which aired on Saudi government-owned television conglomerate MBC, depicts Biden as a forgetful old man who falls asleep on the podium and has to be woken up by a helpless Harris.

The clip begins with an actor playing Biden aimlessly pointing at reporters as “Harris” stands beside him.

“Biden” then walks away from the stage, only for “Harris” to bring him back.

She then guides him to the podium to address the reporters. The actor playing the president then begins to discuss “the crisis in Spain” for the vice president to correct him.

“We are going to talk about the crisis in Africa,” says the fake Biden. The actor playing Harris once again corrects him, getting him back on track to discuss Russia.

The actor playing Biden struggles to remember the name of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Listen to me,” said the fake president. “I have a very important message for you. The message is…”

At this point, Biden falls asleep, prompting Harris to wake him up. Biden then speaks again, referring to the “president of China,” only for Harris to point out that he had not yet addressed Russia.

When he thanks “First Lady” Harris for correcting him, Harris grabs the mic and corrects him yet again.

As the President wraps up the press conference, he says, “Thank you very much. God bless you and God bless you…” Once again, Biden falls asleep and drifts into the arms of Harris, who has to support him again.

The clip went viral on social media.

On at least two occasions during the skit, the actor playing Biden falls asleep as the president addresses reporters.

Biden has had a history of verbal gaffes and misrepresentations that led him to misremember people’s names – prompting observers to question his mental acumen.

The skit broadcast by the Saudi government-owned TV channel could also be interpreted as a sign of Riyadh’s cold outlook on the Biden administration.

Relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia are at an all-time low. The kingdom and its allies in the region have pushed back on Biden’s calls to increase oil production as energy prices soared following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates reportedly refused to speak to the US president last month when he called them to urge them to increase oil production.
