Saturday night during the 41st season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made an appearance and starred alongside her now two-season impersonator Kate McKinnon. She was down to be in on the jokes about herself, but she also made sure to get in a joke about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. And nailed it.
Hillary Clinton played an all-too-cool bartender named Val who chatted with a distressed presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, played by McKinnon.
After taking a few jabs at Clinton’s late embrace of gay marriage and her stance against the Keystone pipeline, McKinnon (as Clinton) set up the moment: “I’m just so darn bummed. All anyone wants to talk about is Donald Trump.”
Val, aka the real Hillary Clinton, impersonated the Republican presidential candidate and said, “Donald Trump? Isn’t he the one that’s like, ‘Uh, you’re all losers’?”
When Val then asked,“You think he’ll win the primaries?” pretend Clinton/McKinnon responded: “He must. I want to be the one take him down. I will destroy him and I will mount his hair in the oval office.”
This marks the second time the Democratic candidate imitated Trump. She took a jab at the Republican nominee with an imitation on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on September 16.
Toward the end of the SNL skit, pretend Clinton/McKinnon said, “I wish you could be president.” Val replied with a “me too.”
