Kate McKinnon is beyond hilarious in her role as Angela Merkel when she learns she’s been selected Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
It was during Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” segment this past weekend that Kate McKinnon portrayed the German chancellor.
“I’m trying to celebrate,” she says, as she squirms in her seat. “My body is rejecting it. Won’t let me do it.”

Angela Merkel (Kate McKinnon) then weighs in on how she handled the difficult year her country has endured.
“2015 has not been the easiest year,” McKinnon says before lifting up Time’s 2015 Person of the Year issue. “Greece wanted to borrow more money. Syria asked if one million refugees could sleep on my couch.”
Even Time magazine agrees Kate McKinnon’s spoof is hilarious.
