SNL veteran Kate McKinnon has reprised her role as Hillary Clinton to mock the Democratic front-runner’s race for New York against Bernie Sanders. This week’s show opened with Clinton wearing a Yankees cap – which still has its price tag on – as she pretended to eat a hot dog and nuts to prove what a real ‘New Yorker’ she is. She later switches her cap for a Mets one. The clip also makes fun of Clinton’s subway gaffe from earlier this week, where it took the presidential candidate several tries to get through the turnstile.

In the clip, McKinnon, playing Clinton, gives up swiping her card and attempts to jump the turnstile. Eventually she gives up and takes a cab

‘The subway. I love to ride. I’m comfortable riding it,’ said Clinton before swiping several times with no success.
She then attempted to climb over the turnstile only to get stuck and give up.
‘I’ll just take a cab,’ she added.
‘This is what “New York values” are really all about’: Trump…
Sanders’ streak continues! Bernie makes it eight wins out of…
‘I don’t want any drugs’: How Trump supporters in Wisconsin…

Following Clinton’s recent loss to rival Bernie Sanders in the Wyoming caucus, the skit discusses Clinton’s streak of several primary losses.
‘It’s true, I have not been winning as of late. In fact I have not won a state in about three weeks, but that was the plan!’ she says in the skit.
McKinnon as Clinton attempts to say ‘You win some you lose some’, but struggles to say ‘lose’, gives up and says, ‘close enough’.
She says the losses ‘humanize’ her as a presidential candidate.

She added that she was going to ‘Take in that hot new Broadway show that’s got everyone a buzz – Chicago!’

The pair then move on to discuss the presidential candidates and Richards’ algorithm, the Black Approval Rating Scale.
‘Each candidate gets a number based on their standing in the black community,’ the real Sharpton, as Richards, says. ‘[Hillary] Clinton gets a 7.2 rating with black voters because her husband is Bill Clinton, who despite recent outbursts is beloved in the black community.
As for Bernie Sanders, he ‘gets a strong 6.3. Yes he was active in the Civil Rights movement, but he seems like the kind of guy who still calls Muhammad Ali ‘Cassius”.The pair then moved into the Republican party.
He give Donald Trump a -1,048 black approval rating and insists that the number could go down even further

‘Come on now. Right now Donald Trump has a black approval rating of -1,048. But that could go down,’ he says.
Then Thompson, as Sharpton, responds: ‘Black people should never trust a white person whose hair is more processed than theirs.’
