2. I thought the impersonations were good

Alec Baldwin is always good and Beck Bennett as Mitch McConnell was spot on, LOL, and I thought that Kate McKinnon's Elizabeth Warren was phenomenal! I wasn't all that thrilled with the way she made fun of her, but I sure couldn't fault the impersonation!

3. Yeah, I bet in a few weeks they will call AOC unlikeable. Seems they have to do that to every

female dem candidate.

Thanks for posting the videos!

4. Thanks! Of course, they're obliged to make fun of everyone in an effort to be humorous

They did the same thing with Hillary and Obama (though they both appeared on the show) and you'll notice I didn't register any objections to the Mitch McConnell impersonation - which was much more severe and there may well be people out there who would object to that, LOL. And despite my views of what they had Elizabeth Warren saying, I really thought Kate McKinnon did an amazing job, no big surprise!

7. That's very true!

Anyone who goes into public life - especially as public as a POTUS or presidential candidate is - has to know that anything that they do or say is subject to scrutiny and possible ridicule. Those with experience - and a sense of humor - realize that just comes with the territory. Obama knew that and Hillary certainly did - and I'm sure that the same goes for Elizabeth Warren. It's only Trump, who is without experience or humor, who chooses to be offended. And, unlike the others, he really is a caricature all by himself.

6. I have to agree with you

on the Warren bit, the impersonation was really good but she could have had better lines for that part, I didn't think it was very funny. The rest was pretty good.

8. Kate McKinnon really is amazing!

She can successfully capture absolutely anyone - any age or gender, she nails it. I found myself paying less attention to the things that she was saying - which weren't that clever - than reminding myself that I wasn't actually listening to Elizabeth Warren!

11. Yes, McTurtle was perfect and Kate McKinnon's Warren was good, but her Pelosi was meh.

She needs to up her Pelosi impression, because Pelosi is not going anywhere.

15. I agree her Elizabeth Warren was much better, but she has plenty of time to practice Nancy Pelosi

If she can successfully impersonate Jeff Sessions, she can impersonate anybody!

16. Yep, she is amazingly talented in every way, including singing.

I'll never forget her Hillary singing Hallelujah after the election that stunned us all:

13. She sure does! It was amazing to watch.

Aside from what she said, I think that was her best impression yet! And that's saying quite a lot!
