‘SNL’ mocked, spoofed Sen. Elizabeth Warren

After nearly a month off, Saturday Night Live returned to the air this past Saturday with “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Rachel Brosnahan acting as host and Greta Van Fleet as the musical guest.

As has been the norm for the iconic sketch comedy show since Trump has been in office, they used their cold opening to ding Trump over the government shutdown. Nancy Pelosi and of course, Chuck Schumer all made appearances in the skit. It was funny, with a few mild laughs sprinkled through the 2-3 minute skit, but really nothing out of ordinary for the program.

But during the Weekend Update, the show did something a bit unusual. About halfway through the segment, Massachusetts senator and likely Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, played by Kate McKinnon, was uncharacteristically mocked.

Check out the segment:
