Amy Poehler and Kate McKinnon Plot Clinton’s Campaign in SNL’s “A Hillary Christmas”

SNL’s last outing of the year saw two of its most successful alumni, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, return to their old stomping grounds as co-hosts. Fittingly, the episode featured all sorts of callbacks to their tenure—a brief takeover of Weekend Update, some guest appearances by Maya Rudolph—but few were as amusing as the above sketch, in which Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton is visited by her 2008 self (Poehler) and a still-clueless Sarah Palin (Fey).

Needless to say, uniting three of the best impressions in SNL history yields very, very funny returns.
