  • Kate McKinnon appeared as Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Weekend Update on “Saturday Night Live.”
  • Warren announced on December 31 that she would form an exploratory committee for the presidency and has already traveled to Iowa to kick off her pursuit of the Democratic nomination.
  • “I haven’t been this excited since I found out my package from L.L. Bean had shipped,” McKinnon, as Warren, said.
  • Warren has been a frequent target of the political right for both her politics and her claimed Native American heritage – President Donald Trump has invoked the latter issue to smear Warren.
  • McKinnon’s Warren also fended off suggestions that voters won’t like her.
  • “I’m sorry I’m not young and pretty like Donald ‘Jackass’ Trump,” she said. “Am I likable? Prob not. Neither is a prostate exam, but you need one or you’ll die.”
