Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made it to Saturday Night Live.

The show, that says it is fair and attacks both parties the same, rarely has a negative word to say about a Democrat.

But it did make fun of the freshman congressperson to be on Saturday, kind of.

The sketch comedy show did a parody of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in which it interviewed Ocasio-Cortez, played by Melissa Villaseñor.

It poked fun at her youth and inexperience but managed to portray her as a hero for the common man.

If you do not think the Democrats see her as a future candidate for president you should think again.

Mediaite reported on the sketch.

Incoming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got the SNL treatment in a sketch that also parodied Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski and made note of their recent nuptials.

Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon played Scarborough and Brzezinski.

At one point, Rep. Elijah Cummings, played by Kenan Thompson, made an appearance to talk about presiding over their hush-hush ceremony, a moment that mirrored their real-life wedding.

Then, Melissa Villaseñor joined as Ocasio-Cortez.

“The freshman class of 2018 just descended on Congress. And no one is making a bigger splash than Democrat from New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” SNL’s Scarborough said.

“Look at me, I’m different,” Villaseñor as Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed.

Then after SNL’s Brezinski suggested she had already overcome great odds, Ocasio-Cortez continued on: “I’m a millennial. Getting any full-time job is overcoming incredible odds. I’m actually still working for Task Rabbit.”

Scarborough then reminded Ocasio-Cortez that he was also in Congress.

“Joe, I worked as a bartender in a Mexican restaurant like 11 minutes ago,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “This job is a freaking breeze. We get Saturday and Sunday off. I can sit down whenever I want. Changing America’s health care system will be nada.”

Ocasio-Cortez then suggested that death threats don’t phase her.

“I was born for this,” she said, noting she was from the Bronx.
