Has Hillary Clinton just been wandering the woods of Chappaqua, NY since the election? On Saturday's episode of SNL, the cast interpreted the numerous accounts from Clinton supporters who have come across her in the wild as the latest in mythological sightings.

In a Ghost Hunters or Urban Legends-inspired sketch, two lore hunters are looking for what they deem "the most elusive legend of all": Hillary Clinton.

The documentary-style video takes us to the home of a woman (Vanessa Bayer) who claims she saw Clinton while she was washing the dishes. While showing the lore hunters the footage she captured on her phone (of Clinton running away), she describes what she saw: "it was blonde, it was 5' 6", it seemed like it kind of wanted some time to itself, so I immediately started running after it."

Complete with overly-dramatic reenactment scenes, the sketch does a great job of leverage stylistic details from these types of shows to make funny points about Hillary Clinton's life post-election. The fact that people keep taking and posting photos with Clinton was touching at first, but at this point it's probably really tiring for the poor woman. Just as Bayer's character said, she probably wants to be left alone. But obviously we care more about ourselves than we do about a woman who is being forced to accept the fact that winning the popular vote by millions doesn't change a damn thing.

In a final attempt to locate Clinton, our lore hunters track down the Chappaqua shaman (Kenan Thompson), to ask him where she's hiding. After communing with the spirits he tells them, "She's buying eggs at a grocery store." This simple statement is yet another great reveal that Hillary Clinton is just trying to live her life and reconcile with the aftermath of the election like everyone else.
