SNL also mocked Democratic contender Hillary Clinton last month in a sketch featuring a lookalike of the former secretary of state serenading young voters with Bonnie Raitt's I Can't Make You Love Me. Notably, that episode of the weekly sketch comedy show aired months after another one featured the real Clinton poking fun at herself in a face-to-face encounter with her acted persona.
