The Emhoffs had their moment in the SNL spotlight as Martin Short and Chloe Fineman joined Maya Rudolph to pamph the Second Family.
Short, who was a cast member on Saturday Night Live in season ten in 1984/85, played Doug Emhoff, the second gentleman and husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, while Fineman played Harris’ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff.
Short’s Emhoff opened a Passover-inspired skit by declaring he was shy, before singing his support for his wife – “I want you to know, listen to me girl, I support you.” Rudolph’s Harris called him his “load-bearing wall” as they kissed in a rather uncomfortable embrace.
Aidy Bryant returned as Ted Cruz, accusing his daughter of scratching Emmoff’s Prius and bringing Israeli flag cupcakes to their party as they reached the aisle.
Rudolph, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Harris last year, skewered Cruz’s hair – “I see a serial killer on the side.”
Then Fineman stepped in to play Ella Emhoff, who signed to IMG Models, a week after going viral at the unveiling in her Miu Miu coat. “You might think I sound crazy, but I assure you I’m the most normal girl in Bushwick,” she joked.
Kenan Thompson appeared as Georgian Senator Raphael Warnock and Alex Moffat made another appearance as President of the United States, albeit this time playing J’Biden in Rudolph’s words. Biden from Moffat brought his troublemaker dog Major with him, who turned out to have him for Emhoff from Short.
