Saturday Night Live skipped over President Trump's impeachment acquittal and the debacle in Iowa and headed straight for the bright lights of the Democratic debate stage in New Hampshire for its Cold Open. Jason Sudeikis returned as Joe Biden, declaring that "losing Iowa was a real kick in the nuts," but that his numbers, like himself, would soon "sneak up" behind you and "kiss you on the neck." Said Larry David's Bernie Sanders: "I still can’t believe all this mess happened in Iowa because of an app. Hey. I have an idea for an app. It’s called No Apps! You show up to your polling place, take a number like you do at the butcher. You walk up to the counter and say to the guy, give me a pound of whatever's about to go bad." Meanwhile, Colin Jost's Pete Buttigieg tried to get #WhiteObama trending. Highlights in the gallery. RuPaul guest-hosted, while Justin Bieber was musical guest. (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
