Warren uses Kate McKinnon’s impression of her in campaign ad

Kate McKinnon’s impersonation of Sen. Elizabeth Warren on “Saturday Night Live” is now part of one of the Massachusetts Democrat’s 2020 campaign ads. 

In the campaign ad, which Warren tweeted to her more than 3 million followers on Tuesday, McKinnon’s Warren appears in a “Weekend Update” segment to tout her fundraising numbers. The original skit aired on the NBC late-night series earlier this month.{mosads}

“You raised all of this money without any corporate donations, is that right?”  Colin Jost, one of the “Weekend Update” anchors, asks the faux Warren.

“That’s right,” McKinnon replies. “That’s grassroots.”

The real-life Warren is then seen making phone calls to individual supporters.

Warren’s camp didn’t immediately respond to ITK’s request for comment about the White House hopeful’s thoughts on McKinnon’s impression.

But Warren’s not the only 2020 candidate to highlight getting spoofed on “SNL.” 

After Maya Rudolph played Harris in a sketch on the show last month, the California Democrat poked fun at herself on Twitter:
