So good that she can take a joke!!
Clinton, who is expected to be right along side actress Kate McKinnon during the TV comic’s impersonation of the presidential candidate, said of Kate and the whole act of being made fun of:
“They come at it from a slightly different perspective, and I learn something about myself watching them pretending to be me, so I’m looking forward to spending the time with Kate. I mean, I’m just thrilled that [executive producer Lorne Michaels] has these amazing women doing these impersonations. I want to see how it goes.”
Oh, and we want to see how it goes, too! LOLz!!
Clinton, who has been on SNL a few times before, loves the challenge of going on the popular and historic show:
“It is crazy. I mean, you show up and they’re still writing it and, you know, putting together the airplane in the air and they’re showing you what they want you to say and where they want you to stand and then they decide, no, they want to do it different. I love it because it is almost like a creative act that you’re in the middle of, and you’re participating but you’re also watching and learning from it.”
It’s always refreshing when a politician can take a joke about themselves — and it’s even better when they are in on the joke! Hillary’s night on SNL this evening should be a TON of fun!
