Addressing the nation from her seat in the Oval Office, she recaps what happened — an unprecedented tie in the electoral college has left things up in the air — and proceeds to praise “our democratic system.” Of course, that’s not exactly her point of view about the events. “This election has just been brutal on me,” she tells loyal Gary (Tony Hale). “My eyelids are starting to look like Keith Richards’ ballsack.”
