Hillary Announces Presidential Bid (on SNL)

By

Wearing a blue jacket beneath her blue jacket, Hillary Clinton — or rather Kate McKinnon’s interpretation of Hillary Clinton — addressed the nation from her lovely home in Chappaqua, New York, on last night's SNL. Occasionally clawing at the air (warmly, of course) and emitting barklike laughter, she showed off her selfie skills (not quite as good as Aaron Schock's, but certainly better than Anthony Weiner's) before finally announcing her intention to run for president of the United States. "I will ascend to my rightful place as president of the United States," she declared, confidently, on her last SNL appearance. This time she upped the intensity: "Citizens, you will elect me! I will be your leader!" Either way, don’t blame me — I voted for Kodos.
