Hillary Clinton goes all 'Love Actually' just because it's Christmas in 'SNL' spoof

'Love Actually' was the inspiration for a Hillary Clinton parody during this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live'. Kate McKinnon dusted off her Hillary wig for a skit, which saw the former White House hopeful unexpectedly appear on someone's doorstep, much like Andrew Lincoln did in the 2003 Richard Curtis romcom. 

But a festive snog with Keira Knightley was the last thing on Clinton's mind. She arrived at the home of an electoral college voter, rather than a Christmas crush, to convince the woman not to vote for Donald Trump. 

Using the festive schmaltz-fest as inspiration, Hillary holds up cards reading: 'Let me just say... because it's Christmas... and at Christmas you tell the truth... I know you're an elector... and on December 19 you're supposed to vote for Donald Trump... but Bish... he cray.' 

Her cards then go on to list the potential dangers of the president elect, suggesting the electoral voter should incur the $1,000 fine and back anyone but Trump.

The parody ends with this uplifting festive message: 'Enjoy your holidays... but keep in mind... if Donald Trump becomes president... he will kill us all.' 

The focus of the skit was on today's electoral college vote, which will see 538 people determine whether or not Trump will take office at the end of January. Electoral college members are likely to stick with their party's candidate, but, however unlikely, they do have the power to change the outcome of the election.
