“George Santos here reporting live from the Super Bowl,” began Bowen Yang, wearing a sweater not unlike the one that Santos was pictured in on his first day in office.
“Congrats on an amazing career,” said James Austin Johnson as NFL on Fox commentator Jimmie Johnson. “I didn’t even know you played football, but I’m seeing here that you were the first player to lead the league in passing and rushing?”
“That’s correct,” Yang replied. “I’m sort of the real Bo Jackson, and I’m proud to be the first African American quarterback to ever dunk a football.” (Among the many things Santos has lied about, one of them was his heritage.)
