Chris Rock Jokes Biden Should be America's 'Last President Ever' in 'SNL' Monologue - Watch!

Chris Rock is kicking off season 46 of Saturday Night Live!

The 55-year-old actor/comedian hosted the season premiere on Saturday (October 3).

Chris opened his monologue by addressing the “elephant in the room” – Donald Trump testing positive for coronavirus.

“My heart goes out to COVID,” Chris joked.

Later on, Chris talked about politics, saying it’s time for a “whole new system” of government.

“I think we need to renegotiate our relationship to the government,” Chris said. “Does it work? I think Joe Biden should be the last president ever. We need a whole new system, OK? … What job do you have for four years, no matter what?”

He continued, “We’ve agreed in the United States that we should not have kings, yet we have dukes and duchesses running the Senate and the Congress, making decisions for poor people. Rich people making decisions for poor people — that’s like your handsome friend giving you dating advice.”

Chris then talked about the only credentials it takes for someone to run for president – they need to be 35-years-old an born in the United States.

“That’s how we got in this predicament,” Chris said. “There should be some rules to being the president. Do you realize there’s more rules to a game show than running for president? Donald Trump left a game show to run for president because it was easier.”

'The Witches,' Starring Anne Hathaway, Will Skip Theaters & Launch on HBO Max This Month

The highly anticipated remake of The Witches was supposed to hit theaters this month, but the movie will be released on HBO Max instead!

Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, and Stanley Tucci star in director Robert Zemeckis‘ fantasy adventure based on the classic story by Roald Dahl.

The Witches tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

Also starring in the movie are Kristin Chenoweth, Chris Rock, and Codie-Lei Eastick. The screenplay was written by Zemeckis with Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro and black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

The movie will start streaming on HBO Max on October 22. Watch the trailer below!

During the interview, Chris revealed that he watched the Presidential Debate between President Trump and former Vice President Biden earlier this week with longtime pal and fellow comedian Jim Carrey.

“I hadn’t spent that much time with Jim in like 20 years,” Chris revealed. “And he is Jim Carrey. He is the most energetic, funniest guy probably we’ve ever seen.”

Chris added that Jim used the debate to prepare material for the upcoming season of SNL, where he will be portraying Biden.

“To watch him watch Joe Biden, and then do Joe Biden, and then maybe do a little Trump and then do a little Clint Eastwood — and he’s very political at the same time,” Chris said. “It was a ride just watching the debates with Jim Carrey.”

Chris Rock Reveals He Was Recently Diagnosed with Nonverbal Learning Disorder

Chris Rock is opening up about his being diagnosed with a learning disorder.

After a nine-hour series of cognitive tests earlier this year, the 55-year-old actor was diagnosed with nonverbal learning disorder (NVLD). In an interview with THR, Chris says that the condition means he has challenges interpreting nonverbal signals in social situations.

“And all I understand are the words,” Chris said of frequently understanding things in their most literal meanings. “By the way, all of those things are really great for writing jokes — they’re just not great for one-on-one relationships.”

Throughout the majority of his life, Chris wrote off his condition, not fully understanding how it affected his daily life.

“I’d always just chalked it up to being famous,” Chris said. “Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I’d think, ‘Whatever, they’re responding to something that has to do with who they think I am.’ Now, I’m realizing it was me. A lot of it was me.”

Now, Chris commits to seven hours of therapy every week, while also processing childhood traumas.

“I thought I was actually dealing with it, and the reality is I never dealt with it,” Chris added. “The reality was the pain and the fear that that brought me, I was experiencing it every day.”

Chris recently did this for the first time at 55!
