Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Reunite as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton on 'Saturday Night Live'

They came. They saw. They dissed Donald Trump.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to their old Saturday Night Live stomping grounds on Dec. 20 with a handful of fan-favorite roles, including reprising their Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton impressions.
SNL’s current Clinton, Kate McKinnon, is visited by her past self (Poehler) in the sketch and Fey’s former V.P. wannabe pops in to say, “Oh, geez, it looks like I went through time and space again.” And it all culminated in a Clinton-Palin-Clinton dance party, because why not?
It wasn’t all blasts from the pasts though: The comedians spoofed Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” with their own music video, “Dope Squad,” in which they reveal their squad is a “veritable who’s who.”
So, who makes up the Fey (aka Powderkeg) and Poehler (aka Shortfuse) posse? Their nannies, a mammogram technician, Gayle King, Robert Downey Sr., and Amy Schumer. Because, as Fey explains, “I did her show, so she owes me one.”
Hopefully Swift takes this as a compliment, and we don’t have another "there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women” incident on our hands.
Either way, Fey and Poehler delivered the second best Saturday Night Live ratings in 22 months, according to Variety, following only Donald Trump's episode in November. So, basically, #SquadGoals.
Now, find out the one thing that would get Fey to join social media:
