Hillary Clinton Makes A Cameo On ‘Broad City’
Hillary Clinton made a guest appearance on hit Comedy Central series Broad City Wednesday night.
Hillary Clinton On ‘Broad City’
In Broad City episode “2016,” a severely underemployed Ilana (Ilana Glazer) decides to volunteer for Clinton after dropping off a package to her Brooklyn campaign headquarters. She soon meets her supervisor – Sex in the City’s Cynthia Nixon – and gets started cold calling. “No, Hillary does not cry at the office,” Ilana tells the faceless people on the other end of the call. “Yes, Hillary can read a map … and no, she’s not a witch.”
It’s not long before Ilana comes to the conclusion that she can’t afford to be a full-time volunteer and quits. But, before she exits HQ for good, she brings Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) by for a tour. “She’s walked on this floor, she’s breathed in this air,” Ilana tells Abbi, referring to Clinton. “That smells decisive.”
“That smells like confidence,” Abbi chimes in, to which Ilana replies, “It smells like no bullshit.”
Just as Ilana is pointing out the wall on which she most frequently leaned, in comes Hillary Clinton herself. Predictably, neither Ilana nor Abbi can get a grip. Clinton tells them, “It’s alright, just take your time.” Then, spotting Ilana’s name tag, she adds, “Thank you Ilana, thank you for all of your help.”
Ilana eventually confesses that she’s ditching the volunteer work – but that once a week she’ll tweet “Vote for Hillary. Yas, yas, yas.”
“That would be great!” Clinton replies. “We need to drum up some excitement for the campaign, do everything that we possibly can.”
Clinton then introduces an AirDancer asking, “Isn’t she great?”
