[Starts with “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” intro]
[Cut to Wolf Blitzer in his set]

Wolf Blitzer: Hello and welcome to “The Situation Room”. I’m your host Wolf Blitzer, an indoor man with an outdoor name. Today’s top story is the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine which the FDA just approved for emergency use. It’s just like the PS5. Everybody wants it, nobody can get it and if you’re rich, you already had it a month ago. Here to tell us what to expect out of the vaccine roll out are the American gothic of the whole coronavirus situation, please welcome Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx.

[Cut to Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx]

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Okay. Hello. Hi.

Dr. Deborah Birx: And I am also the reason for the cheers.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Let’s try to keep the ‘woo’s to the minimum please. As you all know, woos spread droplets.

[Cut to split screen with Wolf Blitzer, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx]

Wolf Blitzer: Thank you for being here. I understand we’re finally getting some good news.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yes. The vaccine is approved and I am officially joining the Biden administration to continue the fight against covid.

Dr. Deborah Birx: And I think I’ll be joining as well. Right? Remember when trump said to inject bleach and I did a stanky little face and I almost whispered, “No!” Remember?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yes. I remember.

Wolf Blitzer: okay. Let’s talk about the Psizer vaccine which is already being distributed in the United Kingdom.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yes. We’re doing this vaccine World War II style. We made England go in first. See what’s what. And then we swoop in at the end and steal the spotlight. Tom Hanks will make 10 movies about it and when it’s all over, you can kiss any nurse you want.

Wolf Blitzer: That sounds good to me. Now, who will get the first vaccine here on the United States?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Oh, here’s how we’re going to do it. First, healthcare workers. You make seamies, you make dreamies. Whatever.

Dr. Deborah Birx: Next, we have anybody named Mildrid, Hores, Blanc, Mable or Walter.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: We’re talking about super seniors. Anyone who pays for Red Lobster with a diner’s club card.

Dr. Deborah Birx: Then after the elderly, we’ll move on to prisoners. Then teachers. Then sick people. Then everyone else.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Right. Right. That will be July Dr. Anthony Fauci0-bada-bada-bada.

Wolf Blitzer: That’s quite a while to wait. What do you make of the overall federal vaccine plan?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: I try not to comment but this president has done about as good a job with this roll out as I did throwing out that first pitch at the nationals.

Wolf Blitzer: Yes. I believe we have a clip.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Oh, we don’t have to show it.

[Cut to a video clip of Dr. Anthony Fauci pitching in a baseball game. He throws the ball so bad.]

Wolf Blitzer: Now, what exactly happened there?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: I don’t want to talk about it.

Dr. Deborah Birx: It’s okay, little guy. We all mess up sometimes. You threw the ball wrong. I didn’t say, “Don’t drink the bleach.” It happens.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Right. Thank you. But we are here to talk about science and facts.

Radom girl: Dr. Fauci!

[The girl throws a red bra on Dr. Anthony Fauci.]

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Stop throwing bras. Would you?

Wolf Blitzer: I’m sorry, Dr. Fauci. Did someone just throw a bra at your face?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Look. This keeps happening. Throughout this whole thing, I’ve been the only one saying facts. So, some people got a crush on me. They say stuff like, “Can you be my face mask?” I respect it. Any other year, I’m a two. This year, I’m a 10. I don’t know.

Wolf Blitzer: Now, it’s my understanding that the coronavirus vaccine must be stored at 70 degrees below zero. How will you keep the doses cold?

Dr. Deborah Birx: Luckily, the vaccine comes in Coor light cold activated cans. If the mountains are blue, you know the vaccine is effective.

Wolf Blitzer: The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines both require two doses. How will providers track patients and make sure they return for their second dose?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Well, using a technique long employed by one night stands who have caught feelings. We’ve going to have them leave a necklace at the CVS just so they have an excuse to come back.

Wolf Blitzer: How will you decide which states get the shipments first.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Uh-huh. We’re going to distribute to states alphabetically starting with A-California. And then B-New York city.

Dr. Deborah Birx: The distribution will vary based on the locale.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Right. In New Orleans, we’re tossing the vaccines up to balconies like Mardi Gra beads. The more you show, the more you get.

Dr. Deborah Birx: North Carolina’s vaccine will be vinegar based while South Carolina’s will be mustard based. In New York, the vaccine vessels will be very thin on the bottom. Whereas in Chicago, it will be more of a deep dish.

Wolf Blitzer: I see. Well, that sounds like you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yes. But look, hopefully if enough Americans get–

Random girl: Marry me!

[The girl throws another bra on Dr. Anthony Fauci.]

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Enough! Please. Thank you. If enough Americans get this vaccine, you’ll all forget who I am. That’s my goal. To have zero name recognition with Americans. Because that means I’ll have done my job well. I want to go back to being an anonymous hunk. But you have my promise, no matter who is in charge, I’ll do everything possible to ensure that you are able to see your loved ones safely once again.

Dr. Deborah Birx: And I’m taller.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yea, you beat me there.

Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx: And live from New York, it’s Saturday Night.
