The Brett Kavanaugh hearings have been divisive, traumatic, rage-inducing, and all-consuming for quite a few people for a while now. If you spend any time watching television or on social media, it’s pretty much inescapable. For millions of women and men alike, these hearings have been a source of deep stress.
As has been tradition for decades, SNL injected a needed bit of humor into our lives by skewering the hearings in an almost uncomfortably funny and terrifyingly accurate sketch. The 13-minute segment has been making its way around the internet since it aired on Saturday.
If you haven’t seen it and you have time, go ahead and press play. It’s worth it.
One person who was particularly impressed was Sen. Amy Klobuchar. She reached out to Rachel Dratch via Twitter to thank her for her portrayal.
And Rachel kind of loved that.
Amy and Rachel weren’t the only ones impressed. Twitter took a moment to thank both women.
She's be great. Honest and hard working.— MissM ? (@townemma) September 30, 2018

So should we support Rachel Dratch or Amy Klobuchar for President in 2020. I like both.— Virginia Dreaming (@Picklenose1) September 30, 2018
