It was like a scene from SNL, only it was real and it was awesome. Hillary Clinton stepped out in NYC last night and enjoyed dinner and a show with a few pals, one of whom happened to be Kate McKinnon. Yep, SNL’s Hillary Clinton (who also happens to be one heck of a Ghostbuster as well as the new Ms. Frizzle on The Magic School Bus Rides Again) and the IRL Hillary Clinton spent a night together, and it looks like it was just as amazing as we could imagine.

You may remember Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton and Hillary Clinton as Val during Saturday Night Live’s “Bar Talk” sketch a while back…

Yeah, nowadays (especially because of or despite the election outcome), it’s basically a classic.

Well, we basically got to enjoy the IRL sitch when Clinton and McKinnon (along with another pal) enjoyed a meal at NYC’s Orso before catching Glenn Close perform in Broadway’s Sunset Boulevard. Sharing a bottle of wine while the former presidential candidate held court, Kate was obviously absorbed in whatever Clinton was saying — that is, if her body-language is any indication.

Oh, how we wish we could’ve been in on that gals’ night out.

What do you think Hillary Clinton and Kate McKinnon discussed during their night out? Let us know @BritandCo!
