A balding man in a suit stands in front of two American flags.

In Saturday Night Live‘s most recent cold open, President Joe Biden (James Austin Johnson) gave voice to what’s on all our minds heading into this year’s midterm elections: “Big yikes.”

Biden laments the Democratic Party’s current lack of star power. In his words, Democrats have “too many Raphael Warnocks and not enough Herschel Walkers.” So how does Biden plan to turn things around for his party? By bringing in major star power, of course!

The rest of the cold open is a parade of cast impressions as Biden invites celebrities to discuss their platforms. Guy Fieri (Molly Kearney) promises a “full plate of paid family leave dripping in donkey sauce.” Tekashi 6ix9ine (Marcello Hernández) wants “no cap” on Social Security. Oh, and Marianne Williamson (Chloe Fineman) is somehow back, this time with a Tibetan singing bowl. To see the rest of Biden’s slate of Democratic hopefuls, which includes Stormy Daniels (Cecil Strong), Azealia Banks (Ego Nwodim), and Tracy Morgan (Kenan Thompson), check out the full sketch.
