Saturday Night Live Hillary Clinton isn’t Sweating Those Primary Losses One Bit

But if you don’t vote for her she promises “Winter is coming”

Bernie Sanders is on primary hot streak! Since March 22 the obstreperous Senator from Vermont won seven states to Hillary Clinton’s zero. Clinton hasn’t come up empty handed, however, since primary delegates aren’t rewarded on a winner-take-all basis. HRC is definitely losing the beauty contest, if you will, but both Democratic candidates have been lurching closer to the crucial 2,383 mark needed to secure the party’s nomination this July, and right now her leads stands at 1,756 to Sanders’ 1,068.


But you know who isn’t sweating this PR problem? Kate McKinnon’s version of Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live, who cold-opened the show this past weekend and assured her supporters that losing seven in a row is no big deal. She’s fine. And she’s definitely not having a panic attack about winning big in New York City to lock in the majority of her home state’s fat stack of 291 delegates.

Why should she be worried? She’s a native New Yorker after all who loves the same things everyday New Yorkers love, like bags of warm peanuts, the Yankees and/or Mets, street meat hot dogs and riding the subway. Just call her Hillary Rodham Casual. And if you’re Susan Sarandon: Watch out! She’s got some choice words for what you can do with your Sanders advocacy.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
