“Saturday Night Live” has previously mocked Hillary Clinton for trying to mold herself into what voters want that day.
When the Democratic presidential primary field stood at five, SNL introduced Larry David as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Alec Baldwin as former Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) in a send-up of the first debate. “I think you’re really going to like the Hillary Clinton that my team and I have created for this debate,” Kate McKinnon’s Hillary character said in the skit.
In the new faux campaign commercial, Hillary is appealing to the millennial voters she’s losing to Sanders.
“I, Hillary Clinton, share all of your exact same beliefs,” she declares. “And I always have.”
McKinnon’s Hillary character lapses into Bernie stump lines with touches of a hilarious Bernie impression.
At one point she refers to herself as “the biggest outsider Jew in the race” while slowly physically morphing into Sanders to get those votes.
As one commenter noted on SNL’s YouTube page: “#StealTheBern”
