Maya Rudolph gained widespread attention for her performance as Sen. Kamala Harris â€” and her spin on Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s song “WAP” â€” during the “Saturday Night Live” season 46 premiere.
During the opening sketch, Alec Baldwin, who played President Donald Trump, and Jim Carrey, who impersonated Democratic nominee Joe Biden, reenacted the first presidential debate. Rudolph’s Harris entered the scene to cut the tension.
“The both of you, this stops right now. You look at me, Donald. You do not treat my Joe like that. He’s a nice boy,” she said, continuing to demand an apology for his behaviour.
After Baldwin’s Trump muttered an apology, she said: “I think if there’s one thing we learned tonight it’s that America needs a ‘WAP’ â€” woman as president. But for now, I’ll settle for ‘HVPIC’ â€” hot vice president in charge.”
