Kate McKinnon was finally back on “Saturday Night Live” after a seven-episode hiatus playing Dr. Anthony Fauci on the cold open. The infectious disease expert was frustrated by Marjorie Taylor Greene (Cecily Strong), Lauren Boebert (Chloe Fineman) and Santa (Kyle Mooney), who griped that thanks to the COVID vaccine “my testicles have ballooned” — to the size of grapes.
McKinnon introduced a series of vignettes that were supposed to set the record straight on COVID, but definitely did not.
Rifle-toting Greene complained that the government “has been using this fake disease to strip us of our freedom. Do they think we’re dumb?”
They “found a vaccine and said it worked … then people got it and it saved their lives. If that’s not Communism, then honey, I might not know what Communism is,” she added.”
