The 58-year-old "SNL" veteran said to podcast host Glenn Beck that he thought the NBC comedy sketch series had failed because of the well-known post-2016 U.S. presidential election cold opening in which Kate McKinnon sang Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" as Hillary Clinton.

The "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" performer claimed on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" on Saturday, "I hate to poo on my own programme."

"When Hillary Clinton lost — which is natural," he continued. She isn't the most likeable person in the room.

And then Kate McKinnon went out there on 'Saturday Night Live' in the frigid opening and everything, dressed as Hillary Clinton, and started performing 'Hallelujah.' 'Please have a joke at the end,' I literally implored.

"Do not do it. Please do not go there.' And there was no joke at the end, so I said, 'It's finished.' It's all over. It's not coming back.'"

McKinnon, 38, portrayed a spoof of Clinton on the show throughout the 2016 election cycle and revisited the role multiple times until departing in May.

The first episode of "SNL" following Clinton's election loss to Donald Trump featured McKinnon in character as the former presidential candidate.

"I'm not giving up, and neither should you," the obviously tearful comedienne said as she played a sad rendition of "Hallelujah" on the piano.
