'Trump sent me here to be his human shield': Mike Pence gets his COVID jab on SNL while Rudy Giuliani is offered a 'rabies shot' instead and show reveals replacement for Jim Carrey's Joe Biden is cast member Alex Moffat

 Saturday Night Live mocked Vice President Mike Pence's televised COVID-19 vaccination from the White House, joking that he was acting as President Trump's 'human shield' while Rudy Giuliani is offered a rabies shot.

‘I’m sure all Americans are excited to see me, the guy who let COVID spread everywhere, get one of the first vaccines,' said Pence, who in real life is the head of the White House coronavirus task force. 

SNL cast member Beck Bennett made light of the vice president wearing short sleeves while getting his shot on Friday at the White House, which he mistakenly thought was going to be administered through his buttocks.


He also sought to allay fears about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine, calling it 'completely safe and harmless.'

'That’s why President Trump refuses to take it or talk about it,' Pence says.

The newest episode also introduced to America the show's replacement for Jim Carrey, who bowed out of portraying President-elect Joe Biden - SNL cast member Alex Moffat. 

Moffat debuted his Biden imitation alongside Maya Rudolph, who returned as Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who slaps Pence across the face when he suggests that the election results may not stand up.

Pence was portrayed as a feckless, yes-man to Trump, whose absence was felt.

'He's a colorful man and even more fun on steroids,' the vice president said.

When Harris slaps Pence for suggesting that the election results would be overturned, the vice president protests: 'Trump made me do it!' 


When Pence noted that he was 'rocking short sleeves,' he mentioned that his looking 'swole as F' was 'not an allergic reaction.'

'I've been lifting weights in my driveway like Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, but that's where the similarities end,' Pence said.

The reference is to the long-running gag on SNL which has suggested that Pence's conservative stance on LGBTQ issues is due to his being a closet homosexual.

After Pence get the injection, he observes how he 'didn't feel a thing.'

'Yep. It's totally painless,' the doctor said to him.

'No,' the vice president chimed in. 'I meant for the past four years, I haven't felt a thing. 

'Just kind of watched the country burn.'

'No, no, no, no, no,' a panicked vice president said. 

'Kamala Harris, you can't see my bare forearms like this. Eyes off my elbows!'

'I promise you, I am not interested,' the vice president-elect responded.

'Rudy, are you okay?' an alarmed Pence asked. 'Rudy, what is happening with your face?' 'I think all my bodily fluids are trying to distance themselves from me,' Giuliani replied

As Moffat's Biden struggles to walk, he suddenly ditches the cane and does a backflip. He then bumps hips with Harris. 

'I’m like Colonel Sanders. A different guy every time!' Moffat's Biden said.

'There's a good chance that by this time next year, I'm going to be Mario Lopez.'

In real life, Lopez, the former Saved By The Bell star, is starring in a new Lifetime movie in which he portrays Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harland David Sanders. 

Harris is nonetheless worried about Biden's stamina.

'I'm worried about you Joe, especially since you're in a cast on day minus 40 in office,' she said.

Giuliani, portrayed by Kate McKinnon, makes an appearance after learning that he could get 'free meds.'

'People thought I was trying to touch myself, I was actually trying to tuck my blood back in.'

Giuliani then commented: 'If you see black liquid running down my legs, that was just pube dye.'

'What? Can you give this man a shot, please?' Pence told the doctor.

'For what, rabies?' the doctor replied.

'What is it that I do? I've been sitting alone in a dark office for the past four years and no one has told me what to do,' he said.

Carson then commented that nobody is going to believe that he was once a brain surgeon.
