“Well, I needed to blow off some steam. I’ve had a hard couple of 22 years,” McKinnon’s Clinton answered when asked she was at the bar by the former FLOTUS. 

“Why? What do you do for a living?” asked the real Clinton.

“First, I’m a grandmother. And second, I’m a human entrusted with this one green earth.”

“Oh, I get it. You’re a politician,” bartending Clinton answered.

During which, Clinton was able to take shots at her record, including taking too much time to decide her stands on the Keystone Pipeline and gay marriage.

“This has been so nice,” McKinnon’s Clinton said. “You are so easy to talk to, Val.”

“Oh, thanks. That’s the first time I’ve ever heard that,” the real Clinton answered.
