Hillary Clinton has watched as Saturday Night Live has impersonated her character for years. This weekend, Hillary returned the favor.
In a skit for the first episode for SNL this season, Clinton chose to impersonate a potential general election rival in Donald Trump.
“Isn’t he the one who’s like, ‘Uh, you’re all losers.’ “
The laughs kept coming as Hillary posed as a bartender named Val in the skit, Hollywood Life reported. Beyond poking fun at herself, Clinton joined in on a dance-and-sing-along with SNL‘s Hillary Clinton impersonator, Kate McKinnon.
The punch lines didn’t stop with her impersonation of Trump for Clinton on SNL.
When asked what she did, the real Clinton said she was just like everyone else. “I’m just an ordinary citizen who believes the Keystone Pipeline will destroy our environment.”
“This has been so nice. You are really easy to talk to, Val,” McKinnon said.
“Thanks,” Hillary responded. “You know, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that.”
“I wish you could be President,” McKinnon said. “Me too,” Hillary chuckled in response.
Hillary was even pushed on her support of gay marriage during the SNL skit. As McKinnon receives praise for her support of the hot-button issue from Colin Jost, the real Clinton conferred, saying it was great how long she has supported gay marriage.
“I could have supported it sooner,” McKinnon — who is gay — retorts. “Well, you did it pretty soon,” Hillary responds.
“Could’ve been sooner,” the faux Clinton responds. “Fair point,” Hillary concedes.
Darrell Hammond even got into the act. The Bill Clinton SNL impersonator entered the bar later in the skit, taking in the view of the real and fake Clinton. “Oh my God, they’re multiplying,” Hammond said before running from the bar.
“I love the impersonations of me, first by Amy [Poehler], who’s a great friend, now by Kate [McKinnon]. I like them both and I’m not just being diplomatic… They come at it from a slightly different perspective, and I learn something about myself watching them pretend to be me.”
Miley Cyrus served as the host of SNL. Prior to airing, rumors swirled in an Inquisitr report about Nicki Minaj joining her, although they turned out to be false. Cyrus was also the musical guest, and Hillary took a turn introducing her for her second musical performance.
Clinton tweeted during the show what voting for her would mean, and it had nothing to do with policy or politics.
This isn’t her first time on SNL. The former United States Senator appeared in 2008 during her first presidential run, People reported. Clinton enjoys her appearances on the show, the former first lady said.
“I’ve been on SNL before, and it is crazy. You show up, and they’re still writing it, and they’re putting the airplane together in the air. I love it because it’s almost like a creative act that you’re in the middle of and you’re participating in, but you’re also watching and learning from it.”
