“I like being on call for SNL," she told Time magazine in an interview the day before last week's episode. "It definitely helped me with my election anxiety, feeling like I’m actively involved. I don’t want to feel like, once this election has happened, that I’ve sat still and let this pass me by.” Rudolph also discussed taking on other roles on SNL, like presidential debate moderator Kristen Welker. "I think it’s that, combined with everyone in that building knows how much I love the show and how much I love to play there," she says. "All the time I’ve put into the show has allowed any writer there to know my voice, so it’s easy to plug in. I speak from experience: as someone who wrote on the show, it’s a luxury to know someone’s voice."
