Carrey dawned a classic red cardigan to mimic Fred Rogers - a reference to a viral tweet by Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp that scoffed at Biden's town hall with a Mr. Rogers comparison that quickly backfired as Twitter users favorably compared the late children's television host to the Democratic presidential nominee.

Miller said that the debate's focus on foreign policy will be "perfect" in light of Biden's past support for "endless wars", President Trump's success with recent peace deals, and the issue of whether the emails bearing Hunter Biden's name are authentic. Its cold open began by "presenting a rebroadcast of those town halls the way most Americans watched them. flipping back and forth, trying to decide between a Hallmark movie and an alien autopsy".

Day's Stephanopoulos then asked: "Are you ready for softball questions from folks that are already voting for you?"

President Donald Trump says he may leave the United States if he does not win the upcoming presidential election. Biden's reply: "You bet your short trousers I am!" The topics lampooned by the sketch included Trump's relationship to white supremacy ("I've always more or less condemned it"), QAnon ("If anyone's against pedophiles, it's me, the man who was close personal friends with one of the most famous pedophiles on earth - rest in power, Jeffrey"), and the Ku Klux Klan ("Your vehicle breaks down, you call Triple-K"). Toward the end of the sketch, Maya Rudolph reprised her performance as Kamala Harris.
