Hillary Clinton Will Appear on ‘SNL’ This Weekend


Saturday Night Live’s season 41 premiere airs on NBC this weekend with host Miley Cyrus, and there’s one presidential candidate we can count on showing up: Hillary Clinton. The New York Times reports that Clinton is scheduled to appear during this Saturday’s episode in a cold open that will find her meeting her “comedic counterpart” Kate McKinnon. More spoilers ahead:

In the proposed skit, Mrs. Clinton would likely poke fun at herself for trying to appear more authentic while carefully plotting her path to the presidency. Ms. McKinnon, an unabashed Clinton supporter, told The Times’s Maureen Dowd that Mrs. Clinton was “a staunch, passionate lady, and in our culture, unfortunately, there’s something funny about that.”
