Kate McKinnon's Elizabeth Warren impersonation is nearly spot on, and she's been praised by many people for the accuracy and hilarity behind the impression. It only made sense to get the two together in the same room for some shenanigans.

Last night, McKinnon got the opportunity to put her impression to the test, and played Warren against the real Warren.

Before introducing Sen. Warren to Saturday Night Live, the cold open began with fox news host Laura Ingraham (Kate McKinnon) voicing her concerns about the coronavirus.

McKinnon started in on the virus, saying that there was no need to be as worried about it as we all are. She went on to say that, "The left continues to wage its deceitful, dishonest, and frankly gay smear campaign against President Trump."

She then began to speak about the fact that Democrats are hoarding medical supplies like hand sanitizer and surgeon's masks. She then showed a clip of people driving to the store for toilet paper, but it was actually a clip of Vin Diesel driving off a building in Furious 7.

Judge Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong) pointed out that most of their viewers weren't even at risk for the coronavirus, saying, "especially not our viewers, who skew elderly, are in bad health, live cloistered together in a home specifically for sick people, and have smoked their entire lives."

After Strong's segment came one with Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day) and Eric Trump (Alex Moffat). Donald Trump Jr. explained what was going on while Eric Trump was completely clueless in the background. At the end of the sketch, he even stuck a thermometer from the park in his mouth.

A Special Interview with Elizabeth Warren

McKinnon began to ask the real Elizabeth Warren questions about how she was feeling post-primary election.

Warren stated that, "I'm doing just fine, my friends and family have been so supportive. They've been calling nonstop, asking, 'Are you okay? What do you need? Were you electable?'"

Next, McKinnon showed a video of Warren attacking Bloomberg during the democratic debate, except the footage was Warren's dog Bailey with a stolen burrito in his mouth.

When asked if she's the dog or the burrito, Warren responded that she's the dog.

"Not only did I not accept money from billionaires, I got to give one a swirly on live TV," Warren said when asked about her accomplishments throughout the race.

When McKinnon asked who she was planning on endorsing, Warren said, "It's tough. Maybe I'll just pull a New York Times and endorse them both."

She plans on spending more time, "prank calling big banks, drag racing Subarus, and avoiding Twitter," not that she's no longer running.

Just as Warren began her closing statement, McKinnon (dressed like Warren) showed up, and thanked Warren for her work.

"I'm not dead, I'm just in the Senate," Warren responded.
