The latest "Saturday Night Live" cold open skewered the moment Vice President Mike Pence received Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine live on TV this week.

The big picture: In the "SNL" version, Maya Rudolph's Kamala Harris gatecrashes the moment as Beck Bennett's Pence prepares to pull down his pants, prompting him to stop and exclaim: "You can't see my bare forearms like this." After he asked her how she got into the White House, she replies: "I won more votes."

  • "SNL" alum Kristen Wiig hosted the show, while Dua Lipa was the musical guest.
