Hillary Clinton Plays A Barkeep In ‘Saturday Night Live’

“Saturday Night Live” has delved into politics in its own humorous manner. The popular comedy show has welcomed Hillary Clinton and the media has rushed to dig out what has been cooked in that episode. Earlier, the New York Times has reported that the Democratic Presidential candidate will appear on the show and guess who will ring the bell? It is Kate McKinnon, one of the “SNL” cast members, whom we will see to enact opposite Clinton. Notably, Amy Poehler used to hold this role. Back in 2008, Clinton appeared in this show opposite a pantsuit-clad Amy Poehler. Keeping the trend unchanged. the show is opening the curtain dealing with political elements.

The report says the steady cast member Taran Killam is going to step into a businessman’s role, earlier done by Sanders Darrell Hammond. The show opened with a sketch about Donald Trump, with Taran Killam playing the mogul in all his bluster. Former “SNL” cast member Darrell Hammond made a cameo as Bill Clinton and Cecily Strong played Clinton’s longtime aide and current campaign vice chair Huma Abedin. The satirical show nails Clinton from every angle and the Democratic front-runner defends her well.


The episode will see two character sketches, a sympathetic barkeep named “Val” and Clinton herself, played by the politician and Kate McKinnon respectively. Well, we do not know whether Clinton is suited with the bartending job but Kate has done a good performance as the celebrated politician. Well, maybe better than the original. Jokes apart, McKinnon’s Clinton is trapped in diverse issues of both personal and professional, whereas “Val” counsels her pretty well.

The original Clinton was also seen to exhibit her best Donald Trump impression, which she’s known to do on the trail from time to time. The former secretary of state and McKinnon have an exchange over gay marriage talks and steamed the smoke of fun at the prolonged time is passing by took to reach policy positions on the Keystone XL Pipeline.
