Hillary Clinton Set to Appear on Miley Cyrus-Hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’

Democratic frontrunner will appear in season premiere episode, the New York Times reports

Hillary Clinton will appear on Saturday’s season premiere of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

The Democratic frontrunner will appear in the Oct. 3 episode hosted by Miley Cyrus, joining “SNL” cast member and frequent Hillary Clinton impersonator Kate McKinnon in the show’s cold open, according to the New York Times.

The Times also reported that Clinton turned down the opportunity to deliver the keynote address to Human Rights Campaign, the prominent gay and lesbian rights group, in order to do the “SNL” gig.

Representatives for NBC and the Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Clinton previously appeared on the live sketch comedy series in 2008 alongside Amy Poehler doing her Clinton impersonation.

The Season 41 premiere will air this Saturday, with Cyrus pulling double duty as both host and musical guest. The entire cast from last season will return, with the addition of new featured player Jon Rudnitsky.
