Tina Fey Was Sarah Palin, Again, And It Was Amazing, Again

“I belong in a cabinet, ‘cause I’m full of spice, and I got a great rack!”

Tina Fey gave everyone the best Sarah Palin they could ask for — again — when she reprised her SNL role as Donald Trump’s newest number one fan, glitter-tassel jacket and all.


Palin has spent a week as fodder for social media hot takes, lending her one-liners – most notably “Right wingin’, bitter clingin’, proud clingers” – at Trump rallies to endless video mashups and memes. Here’s a reminder:


And for Saturday’s opening skit, Fey took full advantage alongside former SNL Trump impersonator Darrell Hammond.

“We’ve seen our own children targeted by police for no reason other than they committed some crimes,” Fey says. The joke was likely referring to the recent arrest of Palin’s son for alleged domestic abuse, which the Republican later linked to PTSD.


Hammond mimicked Trump’s infamous facial expressions, adding commentary along the way.

“She’s fun, she says whatever she wants,” he says. “It’s like her mouth starts driving before her brain gets in the car.”

After he calls her crazy, Fey lets out some sort of shrieking-meets-quacking noise as she shimmies her metallic fringe.


Finally, Palin let everyone in on her biggest secret: She doesn’t think Trump should win, but he promised her “a spot in his cabinet.”
