Get ready to see potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, 67, like never before!

Hillary Clinton’s ‘Forrest Gump’ Parody — Watch The Hilarious Video From 1995
We can’t believe this is real — and that it is just now re-surfacing! Hillary completely shows off her comedic skills in the video from 1995 where she and Bill Clinton parody the 1994 now infamous classic film, Forrest Gump.
As “Hillary Gump” the former First Lady sits on the famous movie bench right outside the White House with a box of chocolates in her lap taking us through the last few decades of politics — and even shells out some pretty impressive jokes like,”The White House is like a box of chocolates,” she said. “It’s pretty on the outside but inside, it’s full of nuts.”
In the lengthy spoof, Hillary goes through the decades and shows off how her character was involved in several major scandals including admitting to being “Deep Throat” in the Watergate scandal, and even gives advice to former President Jimmy Carter.
The skit is all in honor of the 1995 Gridiron Club Dinner — so of course Hillary Gump had to crack at least one joke at journalists! “My mama always said, reporters are like a box of chocolates,” she said. “Too many of them can kill you but the sweet ones are the nice ones.”
While there are so many great moments throughout the skit — including some pretty amazing wigs — the end where Bill joins his wife on the bench has to be the best. The former President totally makes fun of himself by taking Hillary’s entire box of chocolates and then asks for french fries — so funny! The hilarious parody of course has a happy ending with our sweet couple showing off their love as Hillary says, “Cupid is as Cupid does.”
