The latest episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live featured a sketch about the most recent Democratic debate, featuring Melissa Villaseñor as Rachel Maddow.

"I’ve got mom-hosting-Thanksgiving energy," said Kate McKinnon, reprising her Elizabeth Warren impression. "Come on, America, put a ring on it," she said later in the sketch.

Former SNL castmember Maya Rudolph made a cameo as Kamala Harris. "I’m also America’s cool aunt," she said. "Mama needs a GIF." Later in the sketch, she made a reference to "Old Town Road."

Colin Jost appeared as Pete Buttigieg, while Larry David reprised his impression of Bernie Sanders. "I’m doing better than ever," he said. "Doctors were surprised I made it."

Former castmember Rachel Dratch made a cameo as Amy Klobuchar. "I got $17,000 from ex-boyfriends — all I had to do was threaten to come back in their lives," she said.

Woody Harrelson also reprised his cameo as Joe Biden. "What I want you to know is you should be scared, because I’m always one second away from calling Cory Booker ‘Barack,'" he said.

Chris Redd appeared as Booker in the sketch, while Bowen Yang played Andrew Yang, announcing that his vice president was the new Tesla truck.

The episode’s host, former castmember Will Ferrell, played Tom Steyer, and fellow SNL alum Fred Armisen appeared as Michael Bloomberg, a role he played when he was a castmember on the show. Bloomberg recently launched his Democratic 2020 presidential bid. 

Cecily Strong played the sketch’s "villain" Tulsi Gabbard, saying, "Fight me, cowards."
