Elizabeth Warren surprised Saturday Night Live viewers on March 7 by appearing during the sketch show's cold open.

The Massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate appeared as a guest on Fox News' The Ingraham Angle, with Kate McKinnon playing anchor Laura Ingraham, describing herself as "the Joey Fatone of Fox News."

McKinnon as Ingraham started off the skit recapping the results of Super Tuesday. She noted Joe Biden's win and announced Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' running mate being the "ghost of Fidel Castro."

A number of other castmembers appeared in the sketch as conservative figures, including Cecily Strong as Fox host Jeanine Pirro and Mikey Day and Alex Moffat as Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, respectively, to comment on the latest news about the coronavirus outbreak.

But the final Fox News guest came as a surprise as Warren joined to talk about how she's been spending her free time. She said she's been avoiding Twitter and spending time with her golden retriever, Bailey.

"My friends and family have been so supportive. They've been calling nonstop, asking, 'Are you OK? What do you need? Were you electable?'" Warren said. 

She also reflected on her time on the campaign trail, saying that she enjoyed taking down billionaires and even "got to give one a swirly on live TV."

When the two came to the topic of the Warren giving her endorsement to either Biden or Sanders, Warren said it's tough. "Maybe I'll just pull a New York Times and endorse them both," she joked. 

McKinnon then joined Warren dressed as the senator and the two started the show. 

Backstage, Warren and McKinnon continued to share laughs as they took on Drake's viral TikTok Challenge.
