For Kate McKinnon‘s Hillary Clinton, the “to me you are perfect” scene from Love Actually provided an excellent vehicle to confront a member of the Electoral College on Saturday Night Live.

Since the election, several people have urged Republican members of the Electoral College to not cast their votes for President-elect Donald Trump on Dec. 19. Trump is expected to surpass the 270 votes required to become president after winning 306 electoral votes on election day.

Clinton, played by McKinnon on SNL, decides to take matters into her own hands and shows up at an elector’s door with an armful of poster boards “because it’s Christmas,” mocking the classic Love Actually scene where Mark (played by Andrew Lincoln) confesses his love to Juliet (played by Keira Knightley), who is married to his best friend.

“I know you’re an elector,” she says via the posters. “And on December 19th, you’re supposed for vote for Donald Trump. But bish he cray.”

The subsequent posters were a seemingly endless list of reasons why Trump should not be president as Clinton urged the elector to vote for anyone else. Suggestions included John Kasich, Tom Hanks, Zendaya, The Rock or just a Rock.

“If Donald Trump becomes president he will kill us all,” the last two posters read.

Watch it above.
