    Kate McKinnon Hilariously Breaking Character On “SNL” Is 2020 In A Nutshell

    “Kate, are you okay?” “Obviously not.”

    This is Kate McKinnon. She’s one unbelievably hilarious human and we love her for it. Well, last night she appeared on SNL’s “Weekend Update” with a new character and made our lives 1000x better.

    Everyone, meet Dr. Wenowdis.


    Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis

    Dr. Wenodwis’s whole shtick was responding “we know dis” or “we don’t know dis” to Colin’s not-so-fun facts about Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis . It’s a blast!

    Doctor saying "we know this" to Trump answering question from a doctor on Fox and "we don't know this" about if he's tested negative"


    This is, in fact, the only possible way to manage the 5,000 breaking news stories we’ve been hit with every day this year.

    Towards the end of the segment, Dr. Wenowdis decided he simply could not leave until he’d done his duty of giving Colin a blood pressure test:

    And, well, this is where it all starts going downhill:

    Colin saying "Kate, Kate! Are you okay?" and Kate responding "I'm obviously not!" and laughing


    Girl, me too.

    Kate went on to explain how she came up with Dr. Wenowdis:

    McKinnon explaining that she started doing the character at home because she has a lot of wigs and props.


    Forget baking bread, this is what we should all be doing.

    And then she hit us right in the feels with this reality check:

    McKinnon talking about the things we don't know, like who will win the election, when the pandemic will end, and what will happen to the world.


    This year is really just one big question mark in which nobody knows what’s about to happen, only that it’ll probably be ✨terrifying✨.

    And finally, the sketch ended in this positively perfect interaction that, tbh, sums up 2020 pretty well:

    Doctor saying "But Colin, the one thing we do know is, that, no, we don't know that."


    Petition to make our official motto, “We don’t know!”
