'Saturday Night Live': Elizabeth Warren drops in as surprise guest in cold open segment to dish on elections
'Saturday Night Live' does not fail to surprise its viewers and on this week's episode, the show had a very special guest.
In today's (March 7) episode of the show, the cold open segment spoke about the elections while also having a discussion about the coronavirus. The open segment showcased a conference in which Elizabeth Warren was the "celebrity guest".
Her appearance left everyone shocked as people were expecting to see Kate McKinnon as Warren. McKinnon has often played the part of Warren in the previous episodes and seeing the real Warren taking the stage on the show left viewers excited and surprised at the same time.
Warren recently dropped out of the presidential race and the show made sure that they touched upon that topic. "The woman who has habitually murdered Michael Bloomberg on live television, please welcome, Senator Elizabeth Warren," McKinnon introduced Warren to the audience.
She then asked Warren how she had been ever since she dropped out of the race. Warren stated that her friends and family had been very supportive.
"They've been calling nonstop, asking 'are you okay, what do you need, were you electable?'," she joked. McKinnon then asked Waren who she was planning on endorsing as a presidential candidate.
"It's tough, maybe I'll just pull a New York Times and endorse them both," she said. Warren was then asked if she had any regrets about the election. "Not at all. I am so proud of our campaign. We built a wide coalition of teachers, preschool teachers, middle school teachers, and teachers' pets," she said.
While people had expected the cold open to come to an end, another surprise awaited them as McKinnon reappeared in her Warren attire and seemed excited to stand next to her. She made it clear that she did not want to miss a moment where she could be in the same frame as Warren.
"Sorry, I wanted to put on my favorite outfit to thank you for all that you've done in your lifetime!" she said as the two hugged it out and hinted at a wonderful episode ahead.
'Saturday Night Live' airs on Saturdays at 11.30 pm ET on NBC.
