This must have been part of Hillary Clinton’s “humor and heart” initiative.
Appearing on “Saturday Night Live’s” season premiere Saturday, the well-scripted Democrat presidential front-runner used the opportunity to attack Republican Donald Trump and even joke about her record, but noticeably absent was any mention of her email scandal.
Clinton appeared as a bartender named “Val” who was waiting on herself — played by “SNL” staffer Kate McKinnon — and introduced herself as “just an ordinary citizen who believes the Keystone pipeline will destroy our environment.”
McKinnon’s Clinton lamented not coming out against the pipeline sooner and also for not supporting gay marriage sooner.
Missing from the yuks, though, was any mention of Hillary’s email scandal, or FBI investigations. Maybe she’s learned that joking about the scandal that could derail her campaign — or land her in a criminal trial — is about the worst thing she could do.
Social media mocked that and other parts of Hillary’s attempt at comedy.
well, ‘operation help hillary’ is in full swing #snl

What, no comments about email or the ability to tell the truth with the Hillary skit? #snl — Rob Burch (@robburch) October 4, 2015
I’m guessing the Clinton campaign cut a deal with SNL. Hillary will appear on show but you can’t do email jokes.

The SNL skits with Hillary Clinton was lame. If they had guts, it would have been about the email scandal. #softball — Michael Geller (@gellerm) October 4, 2015
Hillary going on #SNL to show America her ‘human’ side, is like Obama going to church to show us his Christian side…

#SNL– Hey Hillary, your desperation is showing. If you had Kate McKinnon’s personality, maybe you’d move up the likeablity scale. — Color Me Red (@ColorMeRed) October 4, 2015
@andylevy Right on schedule. Not surprising. I wish we had media/hollywood marketing support like dems do. It’s never a level playing field.
