Kate McKinnon brought back her Hillary Clinton impression while Leslie Jones took on Michelle Obama.
Cecily Strong reprised her impression of First Lady Melania Trump—who is reportedly a fan of the impression—in a sketch that gathered multiple First Ladies to commiserate.
Getting ready to attend the State Of The Union address, Strong’s Melania gave herself a pep talk. “Come on, Melania, practice your happy face,” she said before frowning.
Then, host Natalie Portman appeared as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who Portman portrayed in the 2016 biopic Jackie, a performance that earned her an Oscar nomination.
Portman’s Jackie O offered advice about how to handle it when your husband has a public affair, and when Strong’s Melanie lamented that no First Lady had ever been as humiliated as her, Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton magically appeared to offer her two cents. “You tell yourself it’ll all be worth it when you’re president,” McKinnon’s Clinton said with a strained laugh.
Aidy Bryant also showed up as Martha Washington, axe-hacking her way into the room. And Leslie Jones rounded things out with her portrayal of Michelle Obama, who couldn’t quite relate to the other women’s problems. “Barack and I have the perfect relationship,” Jones’ Obama said. “It’s like The Notebook, but black and rich.”Saturday Night Live
