Hillary Clinton’s near-disappearance from the public eye after the election has spawned a mini-industry in Clinton sightings, from the supporter who ran into her in the woods to the other supporter who also ran into her in the woods. This week, Saturday Night Live sent seasoned investigators Rafe Degraw (Beck Bennett) and Coop Dixon (Kyle Mooney) to Westchester County to search for the Democratic nominee, now as difficult to find as Bigfoot, the Chupacabra, and the Loch Ness Monster.
It’s not easy work. Visiting past sighting locations and interviewing people who’ve seen her doesn’t help. Calling Hillary with her distinctive laugh accomplishes nothing. Even a night-vision camera and a copy of a story about Jill Stein’s recount efforts yields nothing more than a mysterious signature. Only by communing with Tuketo (Kenan Thompson), the blind forest shaman of the Chappaqua woods, do Degraw and Dixon get a useful tip on Hillary’s location. Thompson is the best thing about the sketch, but frankly, his advice seems a little questionable: He sends them off to a grocery store, when even nonshamans know the easiest way to lure Hillary Clinton out of hiding is a charity gala.
