Conventional wisdom about writing is conventionally wrong.
I’m not alone in adoring Kate McKinnon’s impression of Hillary Clinton during the campaign, though Alec Baldwin’s job as Trump got more attention.
This song, though, hit me hard. Who knew she could play piano and sing? (If you don’t know the song, it’s by Leonard Cohen, who just died.)
Capping it off? Her lines after the song is over, when you can she’s choked up. Appropriate for our times.
Though she does a great Clinton (below), she also does spot-on impressions of Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
So she can act and sing. If she could dance, McKinnon would be a triple threat.
Yeah, she can dance.
Kate the McKinnon, please keep on doing what you do and we won’t give up.
