"I told the truth; I didn't come to fool ya."

For anyone who may have missed it, this was the cold open on Saturday Night Live this weekend: Kate McKinnon, in character as Hillary Clinton, who she played throughout the campaign, at a piano, playing and singing "Hallelujah," the song by Leonard Cohen, who just passed away.

Lyrics here. At the end of the song, she turns to the camera and says, "I'm not giving up. And neither should you. And live from New York, it's Saturday night."

Just when I think I'm done crying, it turns out I'm not even close to being done.
