Hillary Clinton took on the role of Val the bartender last night in a Saturday Night Live skit, and she gave a solid performance.
In the skit, which kicked off with Miley Cyrus moaning about the lack of choices in the field at a bar, Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon) and Huma Abedin (Cecily Strong), are grabbing a drink and talking strategy. Huma decides to leave and “Hillary” has a vision of chatting up her bartender Val (played by the real Hillary Clinton).
“So, Hillary,” Clinton asks “Clinton.” “What brings you here tonight?”
“Well, I needed to blow off some steam,” McKinnon says. “I’ve had a hard couple of 22 years.”
The two attempt to joke for joke about being a grandmother, the Keystone XL pipeline, gay marriage, and a hilarious Donald Trump impression by Clinton. Watch the skit above.
