On last night’s Saturday Night Live season premiere, Hillary Clinton once again appeared alongside the woman who impersonates her on the show (when she was still in the running for the Democratic candidate slot in 2008, Clinton exchanged a few lines with Amy Poehler).
Playing Clinton opposite Clinton (who played a bartender, Val), Kate McKinnon skewered the hopeful’s foot-dragging regarding the Keystone Pipeline as well as same-sex marriage. As McKinnon is gay, this marks at least the second time on TV this week that an out person challenged a politician’s views on equality to that politician’s face (Raven-Symoné grilled Rick Santorum about his homophobia on Wednesday’s episode of The View).
“It really is great how long you’ve supported gay marriage,” said Clinton to the woman who played her.
“Yes...I could have supported it sooner,” replied McKinnon.
“Well, you did it pretty soon,” said Clinton.
“Yeah. Coulda been sooner,” said McKinnon, digging in with a wink.
“Fair point,” said Clinton.
