Watch Hillary Clinton mock herself for not supporting LGBT rights sooner
Hillary Clinton took on the role of Val the bartender last night in a Saturday Night Live sketch.
During the show – which kicked off with Miley Cyrus mocking Kentucky clerk Kim Davis – ‘Hillary Clinton’ (Kate McKinnon) and her aide, ‘Huma Abedin’ (played by Cecily Strong), are grabbing a drink and talking strategy.
In the traditional style of SNL, ‘Hillary’ has a vision of chatting up her bartender Val – who is in fact played by the real Hillary Clinton.
“So, Hillary,” Clinton asks. “What brings you here tonight?”
“Well, I needed to blow off some steam,” McKinnon says.
“I’ve had a hard couple of 22 years.”
Clinton, who yesterday gave a powerful speech on her support of LGBT rights, goes on to to wisecrack about being a whole host of political issues – including same-sex marriage.
“It really is great how long you’ve supported gay marriage,” says the real Hillary.
“Yes, but I could have supported it sooner,” replies McKinnon.
“Well, you did it pretty soon,” argues Clinton.
“Could of been sooner,” McKinnon continues.
“Fair point,” submits Clinton – to laughs from the audience.
However, her shining moment is when she does a scarily accurate Donald Trump impression – and even pokes fun at his ‘hair’.
Clinton closed out her performance with a singalong with McKinnon to the tune of Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.”
