Louis C.K. talked politics with talk show host Conan O’Brien, showing his support for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.


Louis started off slow with his response when Conan asked him about the election, saying it might be foolish to say because he could be splitting his audience in half, but of course that didn’t stop him, and he was very clear: “It’s not a lesser-of-two-evils thing, I think she’s great,” he said, obviously referring to his candidate of choice, Clinton. “I really like her, I think she’s really talented and I think she’s super smart and I’d take her over anybody. It’s not ’cause it’s between the two of them, I would take her over anybody else who would do it.”

Louis then explained his thought that having a mother be president is so important. “We’ve had 240 years of fathers. Bald father, fat father, every kind of father,” he said. “A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs — tops. Any mother, just a s–t mother, just a not even trying mother — 200 percent… A mother just does it. She feeds you and teaches you, she protects you, she takes care of s–t… It’s not about the first woman, it’s about the first mom.”

In addition to supporting Clinton, Louis also took time to criticize her Republican opponent Donald Trump. “That’s the point of the president… to get drunk and blame them for everything,” Louis said, getting a laugh from the crowd. “This guy,” he said referring to Trump, “every time he’s criticized, everything stops and he makes everybody pay. That’s not how it works. We need somebody who can take abuse. Hillary Clinton can take abuse… We’ve been hazing her, we’ve been holding her down and spitting in her mouth and yelling at her, and she just keeps working! So I’m totally for her.”

When Conan asked the comedian about his opinion about people who are refusing to vote in this election, his response was clear. “If you’re a liberal who’s not gonna vote, you’re a piece of s–t,” he began. “We need just a tough b—h mother who nobody likes… If you vote for Hillary, you’re a grown-up. If you vote for Trump, you’re a sucker. If you don’t vote for anybody, you’re an a–hole.”

Louis has never been one to keep his feelings hidden, and his interview with Conan was no different. See it all below.
