SNL Cast Hillary Clinton as the Least Believable Bartender Ever

Hillary Clinton helped Saturday Night Live kick off its season last night, dropping in on host Miley Cyrus and crew to help gain votes laughs. No real surprise: the episode devoted a lot of its jokes to the impending presidential race.

Hillary's sketch was no exception. SNL cast her as Val, the drink slinging counterpoint to Kate McKinnon's perfectly executed, pantsuit-clad Hillary. Get it? She's in on the joke. She's also the least believable bartender ever - which almost makes the bit funnier. And because no political commentary seems complete without at least one Trump joke-slash-wig, the best moment of the skit came when Hillary (the real one) did her best Donald.

All everyone wants to talk about is Donald Trump. #SNL #MileyonSNL

So yeah, Hillary's probably the last person you'd ever want to serve you a drink, but her impression game is pretty strong. Watch the whole skit below.
