only three hours
Even after five consecutive days of watching Steve Kornacki punch numbers into a calculator and scribble on a magic map board, I’m still no closer to being good at math. But, I know enough to tell you that there were only three hours between Kamala’s speech and hitting the air waves.
Three hours. THREE. HOURS. That’s it! You couldn’t even finish in that span of time.
And yet, when Maya Rudolph joined Jim Carrey during the show’s cold open , she looked like the VP-elect’s freaking doppelgänger.

What sorcery is this!
I’m not the only one who did a double take either. The Twittersphere was abuzz with shock and awe:
HOW IS MAYA RUDOLPH WEARING THE EXACT SAME SUIT KAMALA WORE LITERALLY AN HOUR AGO

The fact that #SNL got Maya Rudolph in Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris’ outfit from tonight so fast, lol.
Give the SNL wardrobe supervisor who found Maya Rudolph a white satin tie blouse in 2.5 hours an Emmy.
SNL’s wardrobe team after seeing Kamala Harris’s acceptance speech outfit #SNL
@TheAllyLindblom In my mind I feel like Maya called Kamala and said “hey Gurl, what are you going to be wearing”
Did Kamala send Maya her suit for SNL? How did they pull that off?
Round of applause to the SNL interns for getting this outfit together so fast #SNL
YESSSS, WD*! Flawless job!
*You bet your ass that’s cool kid slang for wardrobe department.
