Hillary Clinton has weighed in on Saturday Night Live’s parody of the first presidential debate.

In an interview with Extra TV’s A. J. Calloway Wednesday, the Democratic nominee said Baldwin was “perfect” in the show’s cold open.

Baldwin hasn’t yet revealed how he prepared for his goofball portrayal of Trump, who hosted an episode of SNL last season. Previously, former cast member Taran Killam spent a week with him to study his movements.

Clinton was also enthusiastic about McKinnon’s hyper-determined and calculating portrayal, particularly her Willy Wonka-like entrance.

The nominee, who starred in a sketch with Emmy winner McKinnon last year, has raved about the comedian’s caricature before, even campaigning for herself to give America four more years of McKinnon’s sendup. She said that appearing on the show as the election approaches would be something to think about. Watch the full interview below.
