SNL is doing new shows and pretty much producing the skits not in studio but from home. This past weekend in addition to an awesome cold open featuring Brad Pitt as Dr. Anthony Fauci, they also took on our own Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

The skit, hilarious. The accent wavered back and forth a little bit (almost too close to Wisconsin sounding) but nevertheless funny as all get out. You can watch it above.

The Governor even chimed in on it the next day on Fox 2 Detroit. She was a good sport about the spoof, but she said they got the beer wrong. See below.

I know the photo is a little blurred but the Governor is holding up a bottle of TWO HEARTED ALE American-style India Pale Ale.

Brewed by the folks at Bell's and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. (Bell's)

Here's that Brad Pitt/Dr. Fauci cold open. Equally funny.
