Pete Davidson as Aaron Rodgers on SNL: “It’s My Body and My COVID”

reen Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers found himself laid out and sacked no less than two minutes into Saturday Night Live’s cold open this week. Cecily Strong, lampooning Fox News’ high-decibel talking head Jeanine Pirro, introduced the controversial NFL star, played by Pete Davidson, as “an American brave enough to say ‘screw you, science, I know Joe Rogan.”

Davidson suited up as a wool cap-donning, walrus-mustachioed Rodgers, wearing a “Say When?” T-shirt from the movie Tombstone. Channeling the celebrated quarterback, he asked Strong if she remembered when he hosted Jeopardy!, then bragged about his current career as a public health hazard despite criticism from “the woke mob.”

“It’s my body and my COVID. I could give it to whoever I want,” he said, parroting a phrase similar to the pro-choice movement’s “my body, my choice.” (“Never to be used for any other issues,” Strong interjected as Pirro.) 

The bit continued, with Davidson as Rodgers saying he “never lied” about being vaccinated. “I took all my teammates into a huddle, got all their faces three inches away from my wet mouth, and told them ‘trust me, I’m more or less immunized.’”
