Saturday night's "Weekend Update" included a visit from crazy lady Cathy Anne (Cecily Strong) who dropped some truth bombs in the wake of Pizzagate. Described by SNL'​s Michael Che as "the woman that's always yelling outside my window," Cathy Anne is probably the last person you'd expect to hear astute political observations from. But she actually has some pretty decent ideas.

Strong's character feels like the type of person we all know: someone who wants to spout off their own disenchanted views on the U.S. political system, despite being a little bit fuzzy on the details. Cathy Anne seems to have a shady past (she references both smoking crack and having spent time in a men's prison), and her low-brow sensibility allows her to make hilarious observations.

Following the recent headlines about the term "Alt Right" being a label we should not allow a group of people who are just white supremacists, Cathy Anne yells, "just say what you are! You're not McCafé, you're McDonalds." It's a hilarious analogy that perfectly sums up what the Alt Right is trying to do: make a crappy thing sound a little less crappy. But then she goes on to say something that completely undermines her credibility in a hilarious way. "I'm not here for a fancy cap-chino. I'm here because I burned some bridges at Wendy's."

The sketch goes on like that, with Cathy Anne making great points about the current political climate, while also revealing that she's a crazy person who really shouldn't be trusted. Plus, her incredulity at the things that have been happening in the world really hit home as something we can all relate to. Plus, there's a great dig in there about Donald Trump's inability to stop watching SNL.
