Leading up the election last week, Saturday Night Live was the place to go if you wanted hilarious content that would make you feel better. But when Hillary Clinton lost on Tuesday night to Donald Trump, everyone wondered what the comedy show would do to make light of the situation.
Well, the answer is that they didn’t. At least not really. This week's Saturday Night Live episode addressed the election in a cold open with Kate McKinnon, as Hillary Clinton, singing “Hallelujah”, the famous tune of Leonard Cohen who passed away this week.
The opening, clearly emotional for everyone involved, ended with McKinnon saying the message that we all needed to hear: “I’m not giving up and neither should you.”
Watch the video above and try not to cry. But really though, thank you, SNL. We needed this.
