SNL spoofs Elizabeth Warren in latest cold openIn a throwback, cameo-free cold open, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon portrayed an energetic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who was hosting a town hall in Iowa, to begin Saturday evening's episode.McKinnon's Warren started off the sketch by mocking former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), who recently dropped out of the race, as well as President Trump for moving his residency from New York to Florida, offering congratulations to the commander-in-chief for "paying less taxes" because of it.She then took questions from undecided voters, who weren't quite sure if the Democratic presidential candidate's Medicare-for-all plan was right for them. McKinnon's Warren enthusiastically defended the policy by suggesting she'd get Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to pay "a tax" while convincing banks like J.P. Morgan to behave like non-profits. It all ended in frustration, though, when the voters couldn't quite hop off the fence. Watch the full clip below.
