Cast and Writers of SNL Cried After Hillary Lost, and Could Barely Write Comedy Afterwards

Afterwards? Were they lighting the world on fire with the ha-ha's before that?

The cast members of the long-running NBC sketch show told the Hollywood Reporter they sobbed and did not know what to write in the aftermath of Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton.

Cecily Strong said she saw Clinton portrayer Kate McKinnon and they cried together over the loss. Both Strong and McKinnon were strong Clinton supporters during the campaign.

"I saw Kate in the hallway, and we hugged and sobbed," she said.

"The day after the election got extremely sad and very disorienting," said "Weekend Update" anchor Colin Jost. "People didn't know what to write. No one was feeling very funny."

Thank God they found their strong comedy voices again.
