Jim Carrey's Joe Biden Impression on 'SNL' Panned as 'Malarkey'

  Jim Carrey's Joe Biden Impression on 'SNL' Panned as 'Malarkey' Joe Biden might be winning over voters these days — or so it appears — but Jim Carrey winning over critics and Biden supporters with his over-the-top impression on "Saturday Night Live," not so much. In the final weeks before the election, Carrey has taken the job of impersonating the folksy Democratic candidate for president on "SNL," but many of the show's viewers don't think the former vice president and the manic comedian are a good fit. In the show's cold open the last three weeks, Carrey (and "SNL" writers) has lampooned Biden in such a way that has turned off many on social media.

After Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris would be his running mate for the 2020 presidential election , late night hosts shared their views. In June 2020, Harris and Biden feuded on a number of issues including bussing and racism.

In an interview with The West Block's Mercedes Stephenson shortly after the Associated Press and other major American networks, including Fox News, called the race in Biden's favour, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said some of Biden's greatest challenges still lie ahead.

"Biden's first priority is trying to bring the country together. Now, that's not going to be an easy task. The Trump people really almost are like a cult," said the former Vermont governor.

"They believe what Trump says and not anybody else, and Trump and the truth are great strangers. So it'll not be an easy task ... that hard work is now beginning, but the most important part has passed."

Dean said those challenges lie at the heart of many of the divisions facing the country now.

"They simply are people who feel like they've been downtrodden for too long and they're resentful and angry, and nothing is better than getting people to the polls in anger," he said of Trump voters.

Four ways Joe Biden's presidency could impact the world of sports

  Four ways Joe Biden's presidency could impact the world of sports Joe Biden's policies could have a significant impact on sports in America, including how and when fans can return to events in bigger numbers.Decisions on many key sports issues — such as stadium financing and sports gambling — are often made at the state or local level, so a change in the White House probably won't prompt a dramatic shift. In other ways, though, the election of Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, could lead to change.

He said even though things like universal health care would benefit many of those Americans who voted for Trump out of anger and feel downtrodden, he expects it will still be a tough fight given the narrowly divided Congress and the real possibility that Republicans retain control of the Senate.

Two key races in Georgia that will determine control of the Senate are expected to head to run-off votes in early January. Their outcomes are expected to play a decisive role in whether the incoming Biden administration will see the majority of its agenda stalled in a Republican-controlled Senate.

"It's going to be hard," Dean said.

"Trump has really poisoned the well. He's certainly the most divisive president we've had since Abraham Lincoln, and Abraham Lincoln was a statesman.

"You could never accuse Trump of being a statesman."

However, concession is not a requirement for a transfer of power.

The Biden campaign has already confirmed work is underway on steps toward transition, a time-consuming and demanding process behind-the-scenes as the mechanisms to hand over power begin to kick into play and key players begin to take shape.

Dean said while the election of Trump in 2016 reflected a changing America, it reflected the side still fighting against greater forces pushing for equalization of power and opportunity, and is not a reflection of where the country is going.

"It reflects the changing of America, but he's on the losing side," Dean said of the narrow margin of victory projected for Biden.

"Our side is young. It's diverse, it's overwhelmingly female," he said.

"That's the future of America. It's the future of the world."
