Scarlett Johansson Parodies Katie Britt’s Response to Biden’s State of the Union on “SNL”

On Thursday night, Sen. Katie Britt, R-Al, made a speech from her kitchen in which she chewed out Biden over the border crisis. According to her, the crisis is one he “invited” to the country and is now more dangerous than it was four years ago.

Britt seemed to be blaming Biden for the murder of Laken Riley, the 22-year-old nursing student murdered by an “illegal.” She also told a story about a victim of human trafficking, which she implied happened during Biden’s tenure. 

Biden is not everyone’s favorite person right now. But instead of people joining Britt in her criticism of the Democrat, she received criticism for it. 

Scarlett Johansson poked fun at the senator’s response to Biden’s SOTU address while delivering a rebuttal, saying she’s auditioning for the part of a “scary mom.”

“And I’ll be performing an original monologue called ‘This Country is Hell,'” Johansson said, channeling Britt. The actress continued, opening up about her concern about “the future of our children.”

“And this is why I’ve invited you into this strange, empty kitchen. Because Republicans wanted me to appeal to women voters and women love kitchen,” Johansson said, eliciting laughter from the crowd.

Parodying as Britt, the actress called Biden’s SOTU address “the performance of a permanent politician, adding very dramatically that she is “not performing.” Alluding to Britt’s story about a human trafficking victim, Johansson said she’s “going to do a pivot out of nowhere into a shockingly violent story about sex trafficking.”

“And rest assured, every detail about it is real. Except the year, where it took place and who was president when it happened,” Johansson said.

Not long after Britt’s address on Thursday, journalist Jonathan Katz did some digging. What he found was that the trafficking did not happen during Biden’s presidency or even in the United States. It happened during former President George W. Bush’s administration in Mexico, and after he revealed this, it immediately went viral.

Johansson then said she was not just making the video to respond to Biden’s SOTU address. But also to sell cross necklaces for QVC. “This affinity diamond necklace goes with anything, and you can wear it from da church to da club,” Johansson said.

Towards the end, Johansson recreates a scene from the movie “Get Out,” in which Catherine Keener hypnotizes actor Daniel Kaluuya by scraping a spoon across her teacup. Kenan Thompson portrays Kaluuya in the scene. He wears a gray hooded sweatshirt and stares wide-eyed into the camera, a tear falling down his face.

“But to the American people who are struggling right now, know this. We hear you, we see you, we smell you,” the actress said. We’re inside your kitchen right now, looking through your fridge. And what’s that on the top shelf? Migrants.”

Britt has responded to criticism of her remarks about Biden’s address on “Fox News Sunday.” However, she did not acknowledge that she had made any mistakes or left a wrong impression.

Asked whether she meant to give the impression that the story she told about human trafficking happened during Biden’s tenure, she said “No,” adding later, “I very clearly said I spoke to a woman who told me about when she was trafficked when she was 12, so I didn’t say a teenager. I didn’t say a young woman, a grown woman, a woman when she was trafficked when she was 12.”

She remains convinced that Biden “didn’t just create this border crisis. He invited it with 94 executive actions in his first 100 days.”

The White House, in its response to her remarks, accused Britt of relying on “debunked lies” to attack Biden. “Instead of telling more debunked lies to justify opposing the toughest bipartisan border legislation in modern history, Senator Britt should stop choosing human smugglers and fentanyl traffickers over our national security and the Border Patrol Union,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates said. “Like President Biden said in his State of the Union, ‘We have a simple choice: We can fight about fixing the border, or we can fix it.'”
