'SNL' Riffs On TikTok Meeting with Biden On How to Fight Putin
'SNL' Riffs on TikTok Meeting with Biden ... How to Subdue Putin

'SNL' managed to walk the line Saturday night, with a hilarious cold open about TikTokers making the trek to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., advising the Prez on how to fight the Russians.
The premise -- President Biden meets TikTok stars in the Oval for a brainstorming meeting on how to fight the Russian disinformation campaign and Putin himself. After all, these are influencers, so maybe they can influence the right folks.
It's actually a real thing ... White House officials briefed 30 social media influencers this week about the Russian invasion.
Well, in the skit, a CW actress goes all AnnaLynne McCord and suggests the best way to tame Putin is with a poem.
Not to be outdone, another TikToker suggests the solution is a prank ... throwing Putin down a flight of stairs.
Another influencer seems to swing far right, as she suggests Hunter Biden started the war.
There's a hysterical mix-up when a dude named Charles D'Amelio said he didn't know why he was there, but he assumed they meant to invite Charli. Honest mistake ... on his way out he asked if there were any extra stimi checks.
And then the influencer with the plunger ... you just gotta watch it. Super funny.
If you don't laugh, you cry, right?
