Saturday Night Live opened with James Austin Johnson’s President Joe Biden and Kate McKinnon‘s Press Secretary Jen Psaki looking to TikTok creators for ways to ‘win the information war on social media’ amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Actress Zoë Kravitz made her debut appearance on the show, with Rosalia performing ‘La Fama’ and ‘Chicken Teriyaki.’ 

In her monologue, she discussed her upcoming role as Catwoman in Warner Brother’s The Batman – with Kate McKinnon appearing as Catwoman from the 90s, the first black Catwoman – Eartha Kitt – played by Ego Nwodim, a cat lady pushing a real cat in a stroller played by Aidy Bryant, and Katt Williams played by Chris Redd interrupting her monologue.

Cast member Pete Davidson was notably absent from Saturday’s show for the second week running, disappointing fans who hoped he would hit back at Kanye West after the rapper buried a paper mâché version of the comedian in his ‘Eazy’ music video earlier this month.

‘This week as the war in Ukraine intensified, access to Facebook and Instagram in the country were shut off, leaving only one source of information: TikTok,’ a narrator said at the top of the skit

‘This week as the war in Ukraine intensified, access to Facebook and Instagram in the country were shut off, leaving only one source of information: TikTok,’ a narrator says at the top of the skit. 

‘So on Thursday, the White House responded by holding a national security briefing with some of the nation’s top TikTok creators.’

Johnson’s Biden began thanking the group of six guests for ‘answering your nation’s call during a time of need,’ to which one creator said they had ‘flexible schedules’ and another played by Bryant noting that she was 12 years old. 

‘I also want to thank my press secretary, Jen Psaki, for having the vision to set this up,’ he adds.

‘I suggested it as a joke and then it actually happened,’ McKinnon‘s Psaki replies.

Johnson’s Biden called himself the ‘landline of Presidents,’ and that ‘I understand Putin, I understand war, but there’s one thing I don’t understand – computer.’

‘Computer very mean to me,’ Johnson’s Biden says. ‘Computer always ask to run an update right when I turn computer on. Whenever I type in “malarkey,” computer say “Did you mean magenta?”‘

The first creator, who said her name was ‘Actress from The CW’ and was played by Chloe Fineman, was a parody of AnnaLynne McCord who, in real life, released a strange performance poem in which she imagined herself as Vladimir Putin’s mother.  

‘Oh no, it’s this girl,’ McKinnon’s Psaki says. 

‘While Putin might have tanks and bombs, there’s something even more powerful we can attack him with – poems,’ Fineman’s McCord says.

‘Dear Vladimir Putin: If I was your mother, I would have loved you more. If I was your wife, I would have been so, so so mad at you. If I was your baby brother -‘

After Psaki cuts her off and asks if she has any other ideas, Fineman's character (pictured) stands up and says 'Five ways to help Ukraine!' while dancing before pointing in various directions

After Psaki cuts her off and asks if she has any other ideas, Fineman’s character stands up and says ‘Five ways to help Ukraine!’ while dancing before pointing in various directions – a la a TikTok video.

‘I think she’s expecting text to show up,’ McKinnon’s Psaki says.

Jason Derulo, played by Chris Redd, just sings his own name as he does in his songs and is also asked for his take, along with a TikToker from the fictitious ‘Boo Boo Boys.’

‘Yo, yo, one time they pranked a dude and threw him down five flights of stairs – it was hilarious,’ Biden says, with Aristotle Athari’s TikTok creator calling him a ‘Boo boo head.’

‘That sounds like an amazing hobby,’ Psaki says, adding that she ‘hates this world’ when the influencer replied that his channel made $13 million last year. His plan to ‘defeat Putin’ simply consisted of ‘throwing him down a flight of stairs.’

A 12-year-old girl played by Bryant, who said she did ‘silly animal makeup for kids,’ was asked for by Biden for her input on ‘what we can do about this war.’

‘Oh, you mean the one started by your son Hunter Biden? And his pals at Burisma? Where is the laptop? Is it in this room?’ she replies. 

‘You don’t expect the animal makeup girl to be alt-right,’ Johnson’s Biden says.   

A roofer played by Kenan Thompson, Charles D’Amelio, soon left after realizing he had been mistaken for popular TikTok creator Charli D’Amelio, 17, who became famous for her dance videos.

‘Y’all don’t happen to have any of those extra Covid stimmy checks lying around do you?’ he asks as he leaves.

The last TikToker was Kazuhisa Uekusa with a toilet plunger affixed to his nipple. In real life, the comedian has performed tricks with a toilet plunger – including making music.

'The idea of asking TikTok stars about Russia might sound like a joke, but remember - they said the same thing about the radio in WW2,' he said, the camera focusing in on the plunger sticking to his body

‘Never underestimate the importance of new technology that reaches young people in ways you can never understand. TikTok isn’t some childish gimmick. It has more power and more influence than the nightly news.’

‘If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to move this plunger to my crotch, attach a knife to it and try to slice an apple in half,’ he adds. ‘God bless America.’
