Hillary Clinton has sparred with many candidates throughout the 2016 presidential race, and she finally met her match on ‘Ellen.’ Her competition for first woman president is just a little bit younger than anyone expected.
Ellen DeGeneres, 57, brought back audience favorite Macey Hensley, 5, to her special NYC edition of Ellen on September 10 to visit with Hillary Clinton, 67, and the results were amazing! You might remember little Macey as an incredible presidential expert; and now she’s turned into Hillary’s little mini-me due to a fabulous, White House-worthy makeover. Girl power!
After a thorough interview with Ellen, Hillary was told that she’d be getting grilled by a real expert — and it turned out to be Macey! Ellen wasn’t exaggerating; even though Macey is so young that she can barely read, Hillary could ask her about a random president and get schooled with tons of facts about the leaders. Amazing.
Macey even had facts about Hillary herself memorized. Did you know she likes to put tabasco sauce on everything, and loves Amelia Bedelia books, just like Macey? Uncanny! That’s not the only thing the pair have in common. They both want to be president!
Ellen knew the perfect way to get the ball rolling for Macey; she gifted her with a tiny replica of the signature bright blue pantsuit Hillary was wearing right there during her interview! Macey was thrilled beyond belief! She ran out onstage later in the show wearing it proudly, looking just like Hillary’s mini-me.
Earlier in the show, Hillary had quipped that although she would be one of the oldest presidents ever elected at 67, she would “be the youngest woman president.” Well, we think Macey might be giving you a run for your money one day! HollywoodLifers, would you vote for Macey? Do you adore her outfit as much as we do? Tell us in the comments and take our poll!
