The sketch pokes fun at Clinton's often criticized demeanor, with McKinnon’s Clinton telling Val she’s “really easy to talk to” -- to which Val quips, “That’s the first time I’ve ever heard that.” -- and “real, and smart, and really nice in person.”

Now, according to CBS News, the presidential hopeful is taking Val on the campaign trail. At a town hall on Monday, when a woman asked if she could call the former Secretary of State “Hillary,” Clinton quipped, “Or you can call me Val.”

Then, on Tuesday, she opened a stump speech by saying, "It's good to be back. I've been trying out different possible careers. You know, I kind of like the bartending idea."

She even busted out Val’s Donald Trump impression, at the request of a man at one of her campaign events. “Uhhh, you’re a loser,” she said to apparently huge applause. Nailed it, Val!
