Maya Rudolph Shares What 'SNL' Boss Lorne Michaels Texted Her After Kamala Harris' VP Nomination

NBC Maya Rudolph has shared what her former Saturday Night Live boss, Lorne Michaels, texted her after presidential candidate Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his running mate on Tuesday.

The news makes Harris the first Black woman on a major party presidential ticket.

“He sent me a GIF of myself, as Kamala, in sunglasses, sipping a cocktail and saying, ‘Oh no,’” Rudolph said about Michaels during a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter .

Rudolph said she wasn’t sure what the historic nomination means for her work playing Harris, whom she has never met, on SNL .

Until she meets her, Rudolph’s impression comes from her perception of Harris as a "cool mom or fun aunt.”

I didn’t really know exactly how to do her, but I kept going back to the idea of those parents that are like, ‘You kids can smoke weed, but you have to do it at my house.’ I’m not saying that’s Kamala!
