SNL: Hillary Clinton transforms into Bernie Sanders in fake campaign ad
Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton wants millennials to “feel the Bern” for her, so she literally transforms herself into Bernie Sanders in SNL‘s spoof political ad. “I’m whoever you want me to be, and I approve this message,” she said.
Spoofing criticism of the real-life Clinton, McKinnon’s character tries to claim her opponent’s ideologies as her own. “Since the beginning of my campaign, I have constantly said we need a revolution in the streets,” she exclaimed before adopting Sanders’ accent, his Brooklyn and Jewish upbringing, and his look altogether.
Watch the transformation in the video below.
Elsewhere during Saturday’s episode, Larry David reprised his impersonation of Sanders during the cold open. “I mean, I love my supporters, but they’re too much, right?” he joked. “I’m great, but I’m not five posts a day great. With all due respect to my supporters, get a life.”
