Hillary Clinton made life easy for “Saturday Night Live” writers this week.

Kate McKinnon’s “Hillary” took a series of shots at her Democratic rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in SNL’s opening after losing the last eight states to him in a row (seven when the segment ran).

Her focus is now on her adopted home state of New York and its 291 Democratic delegates. In an attempt to assure her victory in the Empire State, she donned a New York ball cap and attempted to eat a New York street vendor’s frankfurter.

“And later tonight I’m going to take in that hot new Broadway show that’s got all of NYC abuzz — ‘Chicago!’”

“But you know what my favorite part about New York is? The subway,” she added. “I love to ride it and I’m comfortable riding it.”

McKinnon then reprised the real Clinton’s own difficulty making it through the turnstiles, ending with, “I’ll take a cab.”

Jabbing at Sanders she said ,“when I’m running I really hate it when a slow old Jew gets in my way.”

She advised New York’s young voters to sleep in and told actress Susan Sarandon, “who said Trump might be better for America than me, why don’t you take Tuesday to drive off another cliff.”
