Ellen DeGeneres addresses Kate McKinnon’s SNL impersonation of her, on “Ellen”

If you watched Saturday Night Live last weekend, then you saw Kate McKinnon impersonate Ellen DeGeneres in a sketch making light of the silliness that is daytime’s popular talk show, Ellen. If you didn’t see SNL on TV, then you missed out, because NBC hadn’t made the clip available online.

Thankfully, DeGeneres herself addressed the sketch on her own show, complete with a fairly thorough highlights package and commentary.

On McKinnon, DeGeneres said: “She’s really funny. I’m going to invite her to L.A. because I want her to go to Thanksgiving for me.”

Roll the clip!
