Day’s Garland came back and said, “Well, we had to at least check it out.”

He then introduced an agent played by Bowen Yang to talk about what, if anything, was found in ex-President Barack Obama’s home.

Yang’s character broke down: “I don’t want to brag, but I was at Barack Obama’s house. Yes. No big deal. But it was really fun.

‘Mr. Obama opened the door and said, “You sell boy scout cookies?” Which made us all laugh, how totally dead.’

He then joked that Obama’s home didn’t contain any classified documents, but “175 letters from Lin Manuel asking the President to list Hamilton.”

Earlier in the sketch, the Garland impersonator bemoaned the fact that so many political figures had classified documents and wondered what the point of it was.

“Some have said the federal government classifies too many documents,” he said. ÔÇťAbout 50 million a year.

“This has led to people asking, ‘Does recovering these documents even matter?’ To which I say: I don’t know.”

The sketch ended with a bizarre attempt to get serious and comment on Tire Nichols’ murder video, with Thompson’s agent asking Garland if they were planning to “see justice down there, too.”

Day’s Garland replied, “I sincerely hope so,” before breaking into the show’s catchphrase, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday night.”

It comes after former Vice President Mike Pence took possession of the jumble of documents that suddenly brought him together with former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden after the discovery of classified documents at his Indiana home.

With two special counsel investigating Trump and Biden, Pence said Friday he was unaware there were classified documents at his Indiana home and accepts “full responsibility” for the security breach.

“Let me be clear: these classified documents should not have been in my personal apartment,” Pence said. “Mistakes were made and I take full responsibility,” he added.

Pence, speaking at Florida International University in Miami, said a review of his personal records was conducted after classified documents were found at President Joe Biden’s Delaware home.

The PR move comes as the top Democrat-Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee asked the director of national intelligence to provide information about the contents of documents found in the homes of Trump and Biden.
