Kate McKinnon Mocks Marianne Williamson with Hilarious Impression
I don't always laugh at Kate McKinnon, but I also won't deny her obvious comedic abilities. From time to time, Kate is capable of dishing out the knee-slappers to great effect. Take this video for instance.
You might recall Marianne Williamson, the
escaped mental patient Democrat candidate for president. Well, Kate parodied the crap out of this crazy person on the television, and it was hilarious. Enjoy:
“Marianne [Williamson] was the one where you thought, ‘Oh, she might not make it to the fall,'” Meyers joked, before the “Saturday Night Live” star kicked into her impression of the candidate.
“She was a shining comet,” McKinnon replied, before breaking into character. “‘I’ve heard a lot of plans here tonight. And if we think plans are going to beat Donald Trump we’ve got another thing coming.'”
“‘My plan is to gather all the sage in America and burn it,'” she added. “‘My plan is to harness the energy of babies to finally put a man on the moon. And I said to the President of New Zealand, ‘I said, girlfriend, you are so on.’ And I will say to Donald Trump, ‘Boyfriend, you chill.’ Thank you!'”
Say what you will about Kate, but this is just plain funny. She nailed everything. The snooty transatlantic accent. Weird, new-agey babble. Eyes bugging out of her skull. For this, she gets all the chuckles.
Marianne Williamson is the perfect example of this Democratic field. We're dealing with a bunch of loons. As we speak, people are calling the number on the milk carton to alert the mental health facility of a Williamson sighting. Hopefully, they'll soon have her back safely in her (padded) bedroom.
Kate didn't have the only comedic take on the debate:
