Kate McKinnon Took Her Notorious RBG Impression to the RNC, Dished Ginsburns Left and Right


It's unclear what exactly she was doing there, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg (as interpreted by a very energetic Kate McKinnon) took her show on the road to Cleveland and came out swinging—at everyone, including Chris Christie and her nemesis Donald Trump (opens in new tab).

"If my mind is shot, then Donald Trump's is shot, stabbed, strangled, put in a vat of wet cement, and dumped in the Gowanus Canal," McKinnon/Notorious RBG said. "His mind is sleeping with the fishes, but it's waking up to a Ginsburn." Cue some decidedly un-octogenarian dancing and more jokes about her supposed physical frailty.

Can we all agree that the real RBG can't be this far off IRL? (She pregramed a State of the Union (opens in new tab), people!) Watch the video here.
