Tina Fey:
Let's talk about political characters, Kate! How extensively do you follow politics in real life?

Kate McKinnon: 
I wasn't a newspaper person until I got hired here. You have to get ideas from somewhere, and when the election began, I began reading [the New York Times]. Now it's an everyday thing. When we're off, I try not to do it as much because you want to have a moment of joy.

Tina Fey: 
It's kind of stressful and all-consuming. When you play a person like Kellyanne Conway, what are the advantages of building a character off that person, as opposed to a common character?

Kate McKinnon: 
It's much easier for me to do an impression of someone real, because you and the audience begin with a baseline understanding of this person's life. And then if you subvert that in any way, it's a little comedy surprise. That does the bulk of the work for you.
