Kate McKinnon

Hillary Clinton Has the Last Laugh in SNL Christmas Carol Parody

The real Donald Trump was certainly haunted over the weekend by the most recent developments in the investigation into Russia's influence in the 2016 election, including Michael "Lock Her Up" Flynn's guilty plea and his own self-incriminating tweet.

Luckily, Seth Meyers is happy to help her out.

Yes, The New Ghostbusters Is Political

I mean, everything is political. But you knew that.
