'SNL' Uses Scarlett Johansson to Mock Katie Britt as 'Craziest Bitch in the Target Parking Lot'

In the cold open of NBC's Saturday Night Live 'comedy' program, the cast briefly and lightly touched on President Biden's State of the Union speech, and then put on actress Scarlett Johansson (wife of cast member/fake news anchor Colin Jost) to caricature Sen. Katie Britt as the self-proclaimed "craziest bitch in the Target parking lot."

This included mocking her cross necklace with a QVC-style graphic, that she could wear it from "da church to da club." Conservative Christians, always consider them fakers.

Just as 'SNL' mocked Rep. Elise Stefanik instead of top college presidents who expressed great tolerance for vicious anti-Semitic speech on campus, they presented Biden as giving a strong speech after their Biden (who's letting Mikey Day do this?) said "You know, I'd stay here and talk to y'all more, but I saw a glimpse of the Republican senator's response to my speech, and I think she's going to help me more than anything else I can say here. Enjoy."

FAKE BRITT:  Good evening, America. My name is Katie Britt. And I have the honor of [giggles] serving the great people of Alabama. But tonight, I'll be auditioning for the part of scary mom. And I'll be performing an original monologue called This Country Is Hell. You see, I'm not just a senator, I'm a wife, a mother, and the craziest bitch in the Target parking lot. 

I'm worried about the future of our children, and this is why I've invited you into this strange, empty kitchen. Because Republicans wanted me to appeal to woman voters, and women love kitchens. 

The writers wanted to get in a fact-checking line about sex-trafficking: "But first and foremost, I'm a mom. And like any mom, I'm going to do a pivot out of nowhere into a shockingly violent story about sex trafficking. And rest assured, every detail about it is real, except the year, where it took place, and who was president when it happened."

They also put this Democrat line in the script: "But, y'all, Biden's the one who is destroying our country. Just ask yourself -- are you better off today than you were four years ago? Back in the good old days of 2020, the year that nothing bad happened."

Anyone could have seen Senator Britt's scenery-chewing performance and known that NBC would do this parody. What's shameless is they kid Biden like they'd kid their uncle, and Kamala Harris is never portrayed as an over-ambitious Veep type who tosses word salads. It must be good to be a Democrat. 

PS: Later in his "Weekend Update" segment, Colin Jost mocked Trump for saying Biden doesn't speak well. They showed video of Trump stumbling over a sentence, and Jost said "It sounds like someone just inserted a colonoscopy camera."
