    "Saturday Night Live" appeared to get the memo - that Democrats were likely to have a rough election on Tuesday - ahead of this weekend's show.

    The NBC sketch-comedy show, which typically pours most of its energy into mocking Republicans, tried to put the shoe on the other foot during Saturday's broadcast. Instead of attacking the GOP, the sketch poked fun at Democrats for trying - and apparently failing - to drum up more voter enthusiasm for their candidates.


    The sketch began with James Austin Johnson as President Joe Biden saying, "My fellow Americans, this Tuesday, our midterm election will determine the fate of our democracy and let's just say Big Yikes!"

    "Folks, I'm trying like Hell, I promise. I'm on the Peloton every morning tempting fate," he added, promising some "last-minute changes" to the ballots ahead of Tuesday's midterm election: "Democrats who are exciting, got that sizzle!"

    The first change, aimed at voters in California, offered former presidential candidate Marianne Williamson in place of Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA). "She ran for president back in 2020 ad loves a good crystal," Johnson's Biden said as he introduced her.

    "Hey Ohio, meet your next Senator," he continued, offering up Tekashi 6ix9ine to take the place of Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) in the contest against Republican nominee J.D. Vance. After the rapper left the stage, Johnson stage-whispered into the mic, "What a terrifying young man."

    Other offerings included former adult film actress Stormy Daniels to take the place of Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), rapper Azealia Banks to challenge incumbent Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) in place of Congresswoman Val Demings, and comedian Tracy Morgan to handle student loan forgiveness.

    It's not just "SNL" that got the message, however. Longtime Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen laid out the situation during a Sunday morning appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" - and she argued that Democrats were likely to "have a bad night," largely because they had repeatedly failed to listen to voters about what was important.

    "When voters tell you over and over and over again that they care mostly about the economy, listen to them!" she said. "Stop talking about democracy being at stake! Democracy is at stake because people are fighting so much about what elections mean. I mean, voters have told us what they wanted to hear, and I don't think Democrats have delivered this cycle."
