Elizabeth Warren Appears on 'SNL' With Doppleganger Kate McKinnon, Teases She May Endorse Both Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden

Days after dropping out of the Democractic presidential race, Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on Saturday Night Live to tease front-runners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders about who she might endorse while reveling in her debate performance against Mike Bloomberg.

Warren, who exited the contest on Thursday, appeared in the opening skit alongside Kate McKinnon, who started by interviewing her as Fox News host Laura Ingraham, and finished standing beside the Massachusetts senator as her doppleganger.

McKinnon-as-Ingraham queued an interview with Warren on a mock version of The Ingraham Angle as "the woman who savagely murdered Michael Bloomberg on live television," after she castigated the billionaire businessman during the Nevada debate.

"You certainly ran a memorable campaign, here's footage of you debating Mike Bloomberg," the Ingraham character said, cutting to a clip of Warren's dog Bailey eating a burrito. Asked whether the was the dog or the snack, Warren jokingly snarled "I was the dog."

Quizzed on how she has fared since abandoning her campaign, Warren said, "You know, I'm doing just fine. My friends and family have been so supportive. They've been calling nonstop asking, 'Are you OK, what do you need? Were you electable?' That kind of thing."

Warren went on to poke fun at the unconventional decision taken by The New York Times editorial board to endorse both her Senator Amy Klobuchar, who left the race last week and endorsed former vice president Joe Biden.

"So you're not endorsing anyone yet?" asked McKcinnon, to which Warren replied, "Well, it's tough. Maybe I'll pull a New York Times and endorse them both."

The senator, who made improving access to education a central tenet of her campaign, went on to state that she had no regrets. "I'm so proud of our campaign," she said.

She joked, "We built a wide coalition of teachers, preschool teachers, middle school teachers, and teachers' pets."

Appearing to take another friendly jab at Bloomberg, she added, "And not only did I not accept money from billionaires, I got to give one a swirly on live TV."

"But now I've got time to do a little self care, hanging out with my dog Bailey, prank calling big banks, drag racing Subarus, avoiding Twitter," she said.

The skit closed with McKinnon out of her Ingraham outfit and joining Warren in get-up and a gait matching the senator's.

McKinnon told Warren, "I wanted to put on my favorite outfit to thank you for all that you've done in your lifetime," with Warren hitting back, "Im not dead—I'm just in the Senate."
