With the race well and truly over, Donald Trump is now president and the debates are no more.

Katie McKinnon, who played Hillary Clinton, surprised viewers last night by opening up the episode with a rather somber version of the late Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah

With Hillary’s dream of becoming the first female President down the drain, and the sad passing of legendary Cohen this week, the tribute was perfect


She finished the song by looking into the camera and stating:

I’m not giving up, and neither should you.

People adored it

Dave Chappelle was on hosting duties last night, and delivered this powerful monologue about Trump’s election and the race issues surrounding it.
