Over the weekend Saturday Night Live returned from its holiday hiatus and brought back Kate McKinnon’s Senator Elizabeth Warren parody.

During Saturday’s episode, SNL’s Warren sat down with Colin Jost on Weekend Update to discuss her background, her goals for the country, and the sexist remarks that have been made against her. 

“I haven’t been this excited since I found out my package from L.L. Bean had shipped,” McKinnon’s Warren began.

“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,” she continued.

McKinnon’s Warren was then asked what she thought about a recent Politico article that characterized her as “unlikeable.” “Look, yeah, I’m sorry I’m not young and pretty like Donald jackass Trump,” McKinnon’s Warren told Jost. “Look, Colin, was the article sexist, of course, it was. Am I likable? Probably 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.”

She then went on to mock the other front-runners gunning for the Democratic nomination in 2020, including Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke and Kirsten Gillibrand.

McKinnon’s Warren also addressed Warren’s DNA test debacle of which she released her own DNA test to prove that she was part-Native American. “The test came back 100% bad idea,” she said. “Who knew race science wasn’t a good PR strategy? Lost that fight.”
