Maya Rudolph’s hilarious portrayal of Joe Biden’s VP running mate Kamala Harris on Global’s “Saturday Night Live” is so bang on that even she has to remind herself she isn’t really Kamala Harris.

In an interview with Variety, Rudolph opened up about her iconic role, which nabbed her one of her three Emmy nods this year.
