Hillary Clinton admitted that Kate McKinnon makes her second-guess herself
When you’re in the public eye, there’s a good chance you’ll someday end up being impersonated on Saturday Night Live. For presidential candidates, it’s definitely a given. While Donald Trump noted that he hated Alec Baldwin’s recent portrayal of him, Hillary Clinton admitted Kate McKinnon makes her second-guess herself.
Surely she’s fond of the over-the-top performance (as we all are) but Clinton actually questions every movement and statement, in a “did I actually do that?” manner.
"Her really dramatic impersonation of me does make me think, ‘Oh my gosh, did I roll my eyes? Lift my eyebrows?" Clinton confessed in a recent issue of People.
But of course, Clinton definitely appreciates the entire Saturday Night Live experience. Having been on the show a few times, she gives credit to the full team for putting everything together so flawlessly. In fact, it’s the behind-the-scenes team that ensures that these portrayals fully come to life.
"They have these seamstresses, tailors, and designers literally on call to make whatever I was wearing, so that Kate could wear it," she mentioned, noting that she first noticed how quick the team was after her first appearance on the show back in 2008. (Otherwise known as the "Amy Poehler as Hillary" years.)
McKinnon and Baldwin, a combination which Clinton deems as being “priceless”, will likely only have one last night on stage together. Airing tonight, the much-anticipated show hosted by Benedict Cumberbatch will be the final new episode before Election Day.
We can’t wait to see it — and surely, Hillary Clinton will be watching along as well.
