‘Saturday Night Live’ Brings In Elizabeth Warren As Kate McKinnon Blames Coronavirus On “Insane” Liberals

Saturday Night Live took on the coronavirus outbreak in this weekend’s cold open, with help from former Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

Kate McKinnon kicked things off as conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who complained that the coronavirus crisis is a hoax.

“The left continues to wage its deceitful, dishonest, and frankly gay smear campaign against President Trump,” McKinnon’s Ingraham said before tossing to a video she described as liberals “driving to Whole Foods to buy the last bottle of organic Purell.”

The clip of that anxious liberal was actually a scene of Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel driving off a skyscraper.

“It’s insane,” McKinnon quipped about the video. “The left is trying to whip people into a fear frenzy of lies, which just isn’t right, that’s our thing.”

She then called coronavirus an “urban legend” and admitted she was using the phrase as a dog whistle.

She said the country has much bigger things to worry about like, women who keep their maiden names, fat Barbies, Black marching bands, and pop star Harry Styles.

McKinnon’s Ingraham told the viewers to stop wasting their money on surgical masks and instead support her shrinking list of sponsors.

Later she took a shot at recently departed MSNBC host Chris Matthews and then announced it was time for a celebrity interview. That celebrity was former Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, yes the real Warren who McKinnon has portrayed throughout the 2020 campaign season.

Asked how she was doing after dropping out of the race, Warren said, “I’m doing just fine, my friends and family have been so supportive.”

No Time to Die star Daniel Craig served as weekend’s host, with The Weeknd as musical guest. Craig’s hosting stint came just days after MGM, Eon and Universal announced plans to postpone the April release of the upcoming James Bond film to Nov. 25 due to concerns over the coronavirus.
