Just because Hillary Clinton was on Ellen didn’t mean she was allowed to take a break from running for President. The hilarious talk show host grilled her on all the important questions and issues of the day, including singing and selfies.
Okay, there was some other stuff in there too, including a really important moment when the former first lady and secretary of state opened up about what it’s like to be a woman in politics. “I think it still is hard being a woman running for president,” she explained. “If you’re forceful, you’re too forceful. If you’re not forceful, you’re not tough enough.”
Then, Ellen asked the question we’ve all been dying to hear the answer to: what was it like to play opposite a parody of yourself on SNL? Clinton appeared on the show back in October and had to interact with the amazing Kate McKinnon as she performed her beloved parody of the politician. “It is truly an out-of-body experience,” she told Ellen. “When I see her doing me, I say, ‘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.”
She also recounted an instance when they tried to make her sing on the show, and how she quickly proved to them that wasn’t a good idea.
Last but not least, they talked selfies. Clinton appeared in a now-famous selfie with the queen of selfies herself, Kim Kardashian, but had some thoughts about the craze in general, and how it’s affecting politics.
