Megyn Kelly Recalls SNL’s ‘Beautiful’ Mourning Over Hillary’s Defeat (NewsBusters)

Despite initially claiming she wanted to avoid politics on her new NBC daytime show, on Friday, during a fawning interview with the female cast members of Saturday Night Live, host Megyn Kelly fondly reminisced over comedian Kate McKinnon’s sorrowful opening of SNL after Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 election.

“The piano scene with you as Hillary, we now know it was seen by Hillary Clinton herself, who in her book acknowledged the Saturday after the election watching you playing her, playing that beautiful song, talking about seeing the tears in your eyes and saying she had them, too,” Kelly proclaimed. She asked McKinnon: “What was that like for you?”

McKinnon, who played Clinton throughout the campaign, gushed: “I mean, it really meant a lot because that meant a lot to me to be able to do that. And then to know that she watched it and was understanding what I was trying to say and felt it, too, was, like, wow, beautiful.”
