Will Ferrell was joined by his former Saturday Night Live castmate Tracy Morgan during his monologue on Saturday (Nov. 23) as he hosted the show for the fifth time, and plenty more of his former coworkers stopped by later on during the show’s Democratic debate sketch.
Ferrell (who played an unblinking Tom Steyer) was joined by former castmates Maya Rudolph (Kamala Harris), Fred Armisen (Michael Bloomberg) and Rachel Dratch (Amy Klobuchar), as well as recurring guest stars Larry David (Bernie Sanders) and Woody Harrelson (Joe Biden).
Of course, Kate McKinnon continued her portrayal of candidate with “mom hosting Thanksgiving energy” Elizabeth Warren (“I’m a little overwhelmed because I thought 10 people were coming and now there’s 30 million”), while Chris Redd and Colin Jost returned as Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg, respectively. Cecily Strong also appeared as “tonight’s villain” Tulsi Gabbard.
Rudolph and Armisen stuck around and also joined Ferrell in a sketch about the first Thanksgiving in which Ferrell plays a Native American (“I mean, white actors playing Natives? What is this, 2014?” he says, breaking the fourth wall) who refers to white settlers as “illegals” and wants to build a wall to keep them out.
