Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon, known for her impersonations of Granny Clinton for NBC’s comedy show gave a self-pitying performance of the late Leonard Cohen’s "Hallelujah" last weekend.
The song was a goodbye to many things—to the idea of Hillary as America's first female president, to Cohen who died the day before the election and to McKinnon's portrayal of Clinton. (According to the New York Daily News, Alec Baldwin who portrayed Donald Trump opposite McKinnon hinted he would not continue in that role past Election Day. He, like all the other snowflakes, believed Granny would win.)

.@EKDramatist @nickgillespie I found SNL's maudlin devotional funeral dirge for Hillary hilarious, just not for the reason they intended.— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) November 16, 2016
Let the schadenfreude flourish with this parody of an unintentional parody of “Hallelujah”.
