Hillary Clinton admitted recently that she can feel self-conscious when watching Kate McKinnon's impression of her.
McKinnon has made a meal out of each Clinton sketch on Saturday Night Live for years now. From her desperation for the presidency to her calculated movements, McKinnon has created a hilarious caricature of the Democratic nominee, who generally approves of the impression.
But Clinton did admit in a new interview with People that McKinnon's exaggerated movements when impersonating her gives her some pause.
"Her really dramatic impersonation of me does make me think, 'Oh my gosh, did I roll my eyes? Lift my eyebrows?'" Clinton told the publication. "My laugh, which has been noted since I was a little girl-'hearty' is the way it's often described-I see the exaggerated version of it and I do sometimes think, 'Well, maybe I should just sort of back off from that.' But then I forget and go on and just be what I've always been."
Clinton also took the time to praise the staff at Saturday Night Live for replicating her wardrobe so exactly with each sketch.
"They have these seamstresses, tailors, and designers literally on call to make whatever I was wearing so that Kate can wear it," Clinton explained. "And I was stunned by that when I was on SNL the first time back in '08, I was shocked that I showed up and the suit I was wearing was the suit that, at that time, Amy Poehler was wearing. It was really funny."
Clinton and McKinnon have had a strong relationship over the past few years, with the former congratulating the latter on her Emmy win back in September. McKinnon, a supporter of Clinton, admitted earlier in October that she gets emotional over the fact that she could be the first woman to play a President of the United States.
"It's really - I had not thought about it in those terms until this moment," McKinnon told Entertainment Weekly. "Not my involvement in it, but just - what's that moment gonna be like? How hard are we gonna cry? I could cry just thinking about how hard we're gonna cry when it happens."
