‘SNL’ mocks how Hillary’s handling email scandal: ‘This is NOT how Hillary Clinton goes down’

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” mocked Hillary Clinton and her ongoing email scandal, depicting the former secretary of state as a candidate obsessed with becoming president but pretending to be undecided about running.

“If I choose to run,” SNL regular Kate McKinnon repeats throughout the segment while playing the wily Clinton, dismissing recently exposed emails sent to and from her private account as innocent and insisting the scandal would not bring her down.

“What did you think my emails said? ‘Hi, it’s Hillary. I really screwed up on Benghazi today’?” she said. “I wasn’t born yesterday. I was born 67 years ago, and I have been planning on being president ever since. There will be no mistakes in my rise to the top — if I decide to run.”

McKinnon ended the segment by calling out the media.

“I have survived everything that’s been thrown at me: Benghazi, Whitewater, the blue dress, having the maiden name Rodham, and none of that destroyed me,” she said, pronouncing Clinton’s former name as “Rod-HAM.” “So after this little blip, I shall rise again from the ashes like a phoenix — nay, like a Hillary Clinton — and I will ascend to the high office of president and claim my rightful place in history — if I choose to run. I don’t know, I’m so iffy on the whole thing.”
