Watch Kate McKinnon spoof ‘Love, Actually’ as Hillary Clinton

The latest episode of 'Saturday Night Live' spoofed the festive favourite

Kate McKinnon reprised her role as Hillary Clinton on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live! at the weekend (December 17).

Spoofing Love, Actually, McKinnon – as Clinton – tries to sway an Electoral College voter from certifying Donald Trump as the next president through one of the film’s iconic scenes.

In the sketch, titled ‘Hillary Actually,’ Clinton shows up on the doorstep of a Republican voter in an effort to sway her vote before the Electoral College meets today (Dec. 19).

“I know you’re an elector,” Clinton writes on large cue cards. “And on December 19th, you’re supposed for vote for Donald Trump. But bish he cray.” From there, the former Democratic nominee urges her to vote for anyone else, including Tom Hanks, Zendaya, The Rock – or just a plain rock.

Last month, after Donald Trump won the race, Kate McKinnon opened Saturday Night Live in character as Hillary Clinton, covering Leonard Cohen.

The actor sat at a grand piano in the middle of the stage and played ‘Hallelujah’. As her rendition finished, she turned to the camera and said: “I’m not giving up and neither should you.”

Alec Baldwin also played Donald Trump in a Saturday Night Live sketch last month. The Emmy-winning 30 Rock actor played the Republican Presidential nominee opposite Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton on the show’s season 42 premiere.
