Singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”
A very classy end to the skits presented by Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin
Ironic and poignant.
Listen to the words.
After a world-historical terrible week like this one, how do you open a comedy show? Saturday Night Live opted for something spare and moving, putting Kate McKinnon on stage alone with a piano to perform a stripped-down version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in full Hillary Clinton garb.
Singing the best-known song by the just-deceased singer-songwriter while dressed as the just-defeated presidential candidate sounds like a little much – and it is! – but it sort of works, not least because Cohen’s last verse, with lines like “I told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya,” are surprisingly on-point.
McKinnon followed the song by looking at the camera, teary-eyed, and saying,
“I’m not giving up, and neither should you.”
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
It’s been a long week, barely five days after America decided against the most qualified, prepared candidate and chose the alternative.
I’m still numb and shocked.
It’s affected friends and family.
In my humble opinion, it won’t get any better.
Look at the choices for Chief of Staff and White House strategist.
If you don’t know, look them up.
Study, educate yourself.
Don’t normalize the abnormal!
I don’t have the spirit Hillary showed in her concession speech.
‘I’m not ready to make nice”
I do not own this image.
