Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), played by the brilliant Kate McKinnon, stopped by SNL’s Weekend Update as the show returned from a mid-season break.
“I haven’t been this excited since I found out my package from L.L. Bean had shipped,” McKinnon’s Warren told host Colin Jost.
McKinnon’s pitch perfect Warren went on to describe the candidate’s ethos: “I’m a fighter. I’m fighting for the middle class. I’m fighting for Medicare for All. I’m like if Monday Night RAW was hosted by NPR’s Terry Gross.”
Jost then asked her about a recent Politico article that characterized her as “unlikeable.”
“I’m sorry I’m not young and pretty like the jackass Trump,” Warren responded. “Am I likable? Prob not, but neither is a prostate exam, but you need one or you’ll die. This country, Colin, is long overdue for a finger up its caboose. You might even like it, so bend over America, and let Mama Warren get to work.”
