Hillary Clinton has been super busy on the campaign trail, but she still made time to stop by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to lighten things up. Only she got a mansplaining treatment by the host over one of her campaign speeches!
OMG, we’re in stitches! Hillary Clinton, 68, showed off her funny side in a great sketch with Jimmy Kimmel, 48, in an appearance March 24. The Democratic frontrunner allowed Jimmy to play of a game of mansplaining with the only female presidential candidate and it was priceless!
Jimmy went there with Hillary, having her do one of her speeches while he man-splained it for her, i.e. when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending or patronizing way. He wheeled in a podium for her to go speak from but not before asking her, “Are you going to wear this?” about her blue pantsuit, telling her “I think you need something a little more fun,” to which Hil gave him the stink-eye.
“Thank you, it’s wonderful to be here,” Hillary began her speech before Jimmy interrupted, telling her “You’re shouting! You’re too loud. It hurts my ears. It comes off as a little shrill for men. You’re making a speech, not at arrest. Tone it down and try again.” Pick up Hillary’s book “Hard Choices” by clicking right here.
After an eye roll, Hillary continued, “Thank you, it’s wonderful to be here with all of you, no matter who you are…” before being cut off again by Jimmy who told her, “Now you have to speak up because we can’t hear you. You’re like a mouse up there. You know what would be nice? If you smiled, you should smile.”
Hillary sighed and continued., “America is the greatest…” before Jimmy cut her off, telling her “Don’t smile like that cause it’s too forced. It looks like you’re fake. Ask yourself do I want to be President or do I want to be a Lakers Girl,” before Hillary turned around and asked him, “Is that a real choice?”
She soldiered on, stating “We don’t need to be made great…” with Jimmy jumping in saying, “OMG with the sourpuss, try to have some fun.” After finally having enough, Hillary told him, “Jimmy, your comments are kind of contradictory, nothing I do is right,” to which he responded “Exactly, you’re not doing it right, I can’t put my finger on it. It’s that you’re not…”
“A man?” she replied, as he told her, “That’s it, you’re not a man! That was really cute how you did it.” She sarcastically replied “Thanks, THAT’s what I was going for,” in a fake huff, ending a perfect example of how women get treated differently than men for so many things.
