Hillary Clinton SNL

Though President Trump’s comedic counterpart, Alec Baldwin, seems to be having the time of his life mocking him, former candidate Hillary Clinton had a good time with hers. That’d be Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon.

Clinton was seen dining and laughing with McKinnon Wednesday night, at Orso in New York City. One diner chanted “lock him up,” inverting Trump’s election jail call for Clinton.

Following dinner, Clinton would check out Glenn Close starring in Sunset Boulevard. The former secretary of state received a very warm welcome from the audience and the onstage talent.

Her reception, and admiration for the arts, was remarkably different from the jeering that Vice President Mike Pence got in his viewing of Hamilton shortly after the divisive Trump’s election.

Here’s the post-election cold open from November, where McKinnon plays Clinton performing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
