Hillary Clinton Thinks Alec Baldwin Is 'Perfect' As Donald Trump On 'SNL'

“His look, his scowling, his staring down then muttering his response, he was perfect.”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she thinks actor Alec Baldwin is “perfect” to play her GOP rival, Donald Trump, on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“I can’t wait to see what else they’re going to do,” Clinton told Extra. “His look, his scowling, his staring down then muttering his response, he was perfect.”

The former secretary of state also had praise for Kate McKinnon, who plays Clinton on the show, which kicked off its 42nd season on Saturday.

“I’ll tell you when Kate McKinnon came out with the walker [on the show’s season premiere], I thought I was going to fall off my chair,” Clinton said. “She makes me laugh anyway, she is so funny just naturally. Oh, my gosh, she was amazing. I wish I could do the jumps, the splits, the somersault.”

Clinton appeared on “SNL” in October 2015, playing a straight-talking bartender named Val opposite McKinnon’s Clinton. The Democratic nominee told Extra she’s not sure if she’ll be back on “SNL” before Election Day on Nov. 8, “but I’m always up for standing around the bar.”

She and McKinnon also appeared together on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in May 2016, where the comedian did impressions of both the presidential hopeful and the talk show host to their faces.
