Imagine the world leader of your choice beginning an address with, "most of these attacks by creatures and warriors of another era have been temporarily turned aside," and then discussing the defence implications of time probes and parallel universes-- and try not to laugh.

Fantastic Four
#160-163 features an otherworldly villain  engineering an apocalyptic war among earths in alternate universes. The Thing, in one of those worlds, discovers that Nelsen Rockefeller (then vice-president), rather than Gerald Ford, holds the U.S. presidency.
Presumably, Saturday Night Live's first season had less of an impact in that reality.
