Believe it or not, no one was laughing harder atSaturday Night Live's parody of the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton than Clinton herself. In an interview with Extra, Clinton raved about the parody and talked about being game for another SNL appearance before election day.

Clinton called Kate McKinnon's impression of her "amazing" and Alec Baldwin's mimicking of Trump "perfect." She explained how she especially found it funny when McKinnon (as Clinton) came out onto the debate stage with a walker—poking fun at Clinton's health issues with pneumonia—before somersaulting to prove she was in good health.

"I'll tell you when Kate McKinnon came out with the walker, I thought I was going to fall off my chair. She makes me laugh anyway, she is so funny just naturally. Oh, my gosh, she was amazing. I wish I could do the jumps, the splits, the somersault," Clinton said, while joking that she's "working" on those moves too.

Applauding Baldwin's Trump impression, Clinton said, "His look, his scowling, his staring down then muttering his response, he was perfect."

Clinton said she was excited to see what else SNL had in store and mentioned she'd like to return to the show. "We have a lot of ground to cover in the next 35 days, but I'm always up for standing around the bar," Clinton said, referencing her appearance in SNL's season premiere last year when she appeared as a barkeep named Val who served McKinnon's Clinton.

During the same speech, Clinton also commented on Kim Kardashian's robbery in Paris.  “I felt really bad for her,” she said. “And her husband, he was in the middle of a concert and he ran off-stage, bless his heart. I’m just glad nobody was hurt.”
