25 October 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

McKinnon follows in the footsteps of SNL Hillary Clinton impersonators Amy Poehler, Vanessa Bayer, Jan Hooks and Ana Gasteyer. McKinnon's Clinton uses a plethora of facial expressions to emulate Clinton, mixing in robotic gestures, awkward narration of her attempts to be natural, and a dash of desperately wanting to appeal to millennials.
