Hillary Clinton appeared in a new Between Two Ferns special with Zach Galifianakis that unexpectedly dropped on Thursday.

Hillary Clinton On ‘Between Two Ferns’

Before Clinton’s intentionally awkward interview with Galifianakis commenced, the comedian attempted to scare her, creeping up to the set with a grim reaper mask on. Clinton didn’t even flinch as Galifianakis was tackled to the floor. “Not a good idea around the Secret Service,” Clinton observed.

“Critics have often questioned your decision-making and by you doing this show, I hope, it finally lays that to rest,” Galifianakis opened the interview, to which Clinton replied, “Oh I think it absolutely proves their case.”

Galifianakis went on to ask Clinton a number of uncomfortable questions on a variety of topics.

President Barack Obama: “As Secretary, how many words could you type? And how does President Obama like his coffee? Like himself? Weak?”

Clinton’s pantsuits: “I want to meet the person who makes your pantsuits because for Halloween I want to go as a librarian from outer space.”

The friendship between Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump: “Chelsea and Ivanka are friends, does she ever call Chelsea to talk about boys that like her, like her dad?”

Donald Trump‘s Wedding: “When you went to Donald Trump’s wedding, did he write his own vows? And did Michelle Obama write Melania’s?”

Reproduction: “What happens if you become pregnant?”


At one point in the interview, Galifianakis cut away to a Trump ad, explaining to Clinton, “He paid me in steaks.” Clinton warned, “I’d be afraid to eat those, if I were you.”

In one of the sharpest exchanges of the satirical Q&A, Galifianakis asked Clinton what she thinks Trump will sport for the first debate Monday. “I assume he’ll wear that red power tie,” she said.

“Or maybe like a white power tie,” Galifianakis offered.

With a smirk, Clinton replied, “That’s even more appropriate.”
