In the clip from this past weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' Democratic nominee Joe Biden (played by Jim Carrey) is seen in a Halloween-decorated living room, begging America not to vote for Trump.

Ice Cube is the latest celebrity to be parodied on Saturday Night Live, thanks to his controversial meeting with Donald Trump to work on his administration's so-called "Platinum Plan" for Black America.

In the clip from over the weekend (Oct. 31), Democratic nominee Joe Biden (played by Jim Carrey) is seen in a Halloween-decorated living room, begging Americans not to vote for Trump.

Ice Cube and Lil Wayne, played by Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd respectively, then appear following a lightning strike, wearing MAGA hats, even though only Wayne has officially endorsed Trump.

“Why in the name of all that is holy would you be voting for Trump?” asked Carrey.

“Taxes!” they replied in unison, in reference to the Biden administration's tax plan, which would increase taxes for the wealthy. “Plus, Trump’s got a new Platinum Plan,” Redd continued, before Thompson added, “That’s right. If you got a platinum record, you can plan on him doing a photo op with you.”

Ice Cube, upon seeing the sketch, retweeted the clip with a string of laughing emojis, before taking on a more serious tone.

"Fuck you SNL...trying to reduce me to greed," he wrote.
