The Hillary Clinton SNL skit by NBC’s hit sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live this weekend, parodied Hillary Clinton’s expected (now confirmed) announcement to run for the President of The United States.

Hillary Clinton was played by Kate McKinnon in the clip where she announces she’s running for president in a social media video co-starring her husband, Bill Clinton ( played by Darrell Hammond).

The Hollywood Reporter commented:

When she is asked to delete something from her phone, Clinton jokes: “I know a thing of two about that, right?”

Hillary Clinton may have a thing or two to learn about social media.

The former Secretary of State was portrayed by Kate McKinnon in Saturday Night Live’s cold open, with Clinton depicted as filming video of herself to prepare to announce her presidential campaign.

When one clip of hers didn’t turn out so well, her advisor recommends that she delete it from her phone. “I know a thing of two about that, right?” Clinton quips, referring to her recent email scandal.

Clinton had a tough time keeping a straight face when she mentioned that would face tough competition from other Democratic challengers, including former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley. “He sounds like a Simpsons character,” she cracked.

Bill Clinton (Daryl Hammond) also stopped, where he commented on the fact that phones now take video: “If they could do that in the ’90s, I’d be in jail”
