“In the spirit of Pesach, I’ve reached across the aisle,” Rudolph as Harris says in the sketch.
“Joe Biden gave me a list of Republicans to reach out to, and I”m starting from the bottom,” Rudolph says, welcoming Bryant’s Cruz, a recurring target of the show.
“I’ve never been to a Jewish dinner, so I brought some Israeli flag cupcakes,” Bryant’s Cruz says. “I’ve got a ton of these left over from the CPAC [Conservative Political Action Conference], and I’ve got some pigs in a blanket.”
Rudolph then points out that they are not permitted to eat pork or bread during Passover.
His arrival allows the show to spoof and critique the Georgia voting rights law that was passed last week and is expected to make it more difficult for many Black Georgians to vote.
Rudolph asks him how things are going in his state.
“Oh, you saw ‘Roots,’ right? That’s how it’s going in Georgia,” Thompson’s Warnock replies.
When Rudolph implores him to keep Georgia blue for the next election, Thompson replies, “It won’t be easy. They’ll do everything they can to keep Black people from voting. We wouldn’t vote on anything if they had their way, not even ‘American Idol.'”
When Rudolph’s Harris asks why she didn’t come through the door, Strong’s Greene replies, “Ever since Jan. 6, I’ve only been entering dwelling insurrection-style. I don’t trust doors. Doors is what’s destroying this country. I only enter rooms through HVAC ducts, windows and sewer systems.”
