The ghost of Biden’s Past” was back on Saturday Night Live this weekend. 

Jason Sudeikis reenacted his role as Joe Biden from 2013, who was the happy go lucky 47th vice president. He came face-to-face with the current Biden, the President of the United States, stressing over passing his infrastructure bill in the cold open sketch. 

“I don’t understand. My personality was once a favorite of many. I was called Uncle Joe by the press. It’s hard to imagine a life without the former me. James Austin Johnson asked Biden, “Where the heck did that guy go?”

Cue Sudeikis’ “fun” Biden, rocking his signature aviator sunglasses, baseball cap and bomber jacket. “I’m you from eight years ago, buddy! “The ghost of Biden’s past.”

“How can you be me?” Johnson’s new Biden asked. “You seem so happy, so carefree, so—what’s the word I’m looking for?” 

Sudeikis’ old Biden deadpanned, “Lucid.”

Sudeikis’ old Biden reminisced about having the “easiest gig in the world” where you just had to “shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders.” Biden stated that “you just can’t do it anymore.”

“What has happened to us?” Old Biden was curious. We were once fun.”

Biden said that President Obama “ruined everything”, by spending time with porn stars and eating McDonald’s at White House. He also fought with Pope Francis. Sudeikis’ old Biden replied, “Wow, Hillary got awesome!”

After an untimely appearance from Alex Moffat’s Biden from March 2021, Sudeikis passed the torch to Johnson: “I want you to stand tall and flash those 100% natural choppers we got. And remember, we may be from different eras, but at the end of the day, we’re both Joe freakin’ Biden!”

All jokes aside, Sudeikis repeatedly said how “great to be back here at ‘Saturday Night Live'” during his opening monologue. The “Ted Lasso” star was hired as a writer in 2003 at the sketch comedy show and starred as a cast member from 2005 to 2013.

“It’s really special to be back in… this room here. He said that this place was historic. This place has changed my entire life.
