It was a laughing riot when Sen. Elizabeth Warren met SNL’s Elizabeth Warren.
Saturday Night Live started with Kate McKinnon appearing as FOX news Laura Ingraham, and all hell broke loose when she began to express her thoughts on coronavirus.
From calling it a “deceitful, dishonest, and honestly gay smear campaign against President Trump” to concluding that coronavirus is an “urban legend”, Kate McKinnon left no stone unturned to piss off the rightists. She went on to suggest that instead of wasting money on $300 surgical masks, people should invest in her sponsors.
She called coronavirus a “liberal fanfiction” while speaking to Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong), which was another hilarious segment of the show.
The real face-palm moment was when Jeanine said this: “If you see me avoiding Chinese restaurants, it’s not because I’m scared, it’s because I don’t trust the Chinese.”

Anyway, the best part of this segment was when Elizabeth Warren joined the transmission. You could see how elated Kate McKinnon was to do a comedy sketch with her idol.
And yes, she did NOT forget to repeatedly mention how Warren destroyed Bloomberg on live television.
Oh, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn’t forget to take a jab at people who questioned her “electability” throughout the elections.
Finally, McKinnon made a quick costume change and joined Sen. Warren to deliver the famous “Live from New York…” tag line.
Here’s a behind the scenes footage shared by Vanity Fair.
Seems like these two ladies got along really well.
