BURBANK, Calif., Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was seen taking a break from the campaign trail Monday to discuss selfies and Saturday Night Live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

During her second most recent visit on the show, Clinton was asked about her experience guest-starring on SNL with comedian and Hillary Clinton impersonator Kate McKinnon, which she called "an out-of-body experience."

"I mean, there I am — with her! I mean, when I see her doing me, I'm like, 'Oh no, that's not me.' And then, I'm within inches of her and some of it's off but some of it's a little too close for comfort," Clinton said of McKinnon who has become known for dressing up as the former-first lady as she runs for president once again.

DeGeneres also asked Clinton about what she's learned about taking selfies after she was spotted with social media extraordinaire Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West back in August. "Here's what I learned," Clinton said, recalling the photo she took with the power couple. "She takes out her phone and she presses a button, I've never seen this anywhere else."

"It has light all the way around it," she continued about Kardashian's phone. "Like little tiny, tiny lightbulbs. It makes anybody look better!" The 68-year-old former Secretary of State also divulged how she has been working on her selfie skills on the campaign trail.

"I've gotten a lot better," she said. "I'm getting some help from my staff, and we're taking dozens and dozens, sometimes at the same time."

Clinton also took part in a game of Heads Up with DeGeneres and Scandal star Tony Goldwyn which ended with the actor unable to guess "photobomb" at the 60-second mark. "You are good!" Clinton exclaimed, praising his skills.
