Hillary Rodham Clinton popped up on “Saturday Night Live,” portraying a sympathetic bartender who serves a few stiff vodkas to a certain, purple pants suit-wearing — and sloshed — Democratic front-runner.
“Why won’t people just let me lead?” “SNL” comic Kate McKinnon, portraying Clinton, slurs from her barstool as the sketch opens.
“Bartender! Keep ’em coming!”
The camera then pans to behind the bar, where the actual Clinton, wearing a crisp white dress shirt, pours a vodka on the rocks for her tipsy doppelganger.
“Rough night?” Hillary the bartender asks.
“Yeah, you could say that,” Hillary the customer answers.
Not surprisingly, the two gals hit it off swimmingly.
When Hillary the bartender asks Hillary the customer what she does for a living, McKinnon responds with a cynically debate-worthy listing of her qualifications for commander in chief.
“First off, I’m a grandmother,” McKinnon calculatedly begins.
“And second, I am a human, entrusted with this one green earth,” she slurs megalomaniacally.
Hillary the bartender shugs in response, “I’m just an ordinary citizen who believes the Keystone Pipeline will destroy our environment.”
McKinnon, not to be outdone, plays her ace again: “I have a 1-year-old granddaughter.”
Then she adds, “She calls me, ‘Madam President.’ ”
The two sympatico Hillary’s share a fist bump, then take some pot shots at Donald Trump.
“I will destroy him and I will mount his hair in the Oval Office!” McKinnon’s Hillary thunders.
