"Hillary Clinton Bar Talk"
Picking the sketch that actually features Hillary Clinton might seem easy, even borderline lazy. But this was one of the smarter stagings of the classic "real person meets their impersonator" sketch that SNL loves to do. Often, the real people just drop in as themselves, stop to give the clone a once-over, read a few lines, and it's done. But this time, Clinton didn't play herself. Instead, she's a bartender named Val, and it leads to a funny but self-critical conversation. In one incredible moment, McKinnon's Hillary laments that she could've been quicker to support LGBTQ2 rights. Real Hillary reassures her that she was pretty quick, but McKinnon pushes back, saying she could've been better. Considering that McKinnon is the first openly lesbian SNL cast member, it's a charged exchange, and a rare instance of SNL having real discourse with a politician in a cameo appearance.
