Hillary Clinton to Appear on ‘Broad City’

Broad City” is adding to its population: Hillary Clinton will stop by for an episode during season three.

Clinton will join stars/creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer on the Comedy Central series executive produced by Amy Poehler, who famously portrayed Clinton on “Saturday Night Live.”

The involved parties expressed their excitement over the guest appearance via Twitter, with the show’s account calling the trio “three best friends.” Clinton even dropped some of the show’s lingo with the caption “#yas.”

The presidential candidate has been a television regular lately, having appeared on
“Late Night with Seth Meyers” earlier this week, on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” in September and on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in November. She also cameoed on “Saturday Night Live” in October. Clinton will continue her showbiz blitz with an upcoming L.A. fundraising swing, including an event at Jim Henson studios.

Unlike the recent controversy over Clinton’s (and later, Donald Trump’s) appearance on “SNL,” there is some murkiness as to whether cable outlets are bound by equal time rules. In the past, cable networks have assumed they are not; USA ran reruns of “Law & Order” as Fred Thompson was running for president, for example. But if things change, might Trump or other presidential hopefuls pay a visit to Abbi and Ilana’s?

“Broad City’s” third season hits Comedy Central at 10 p.m. on Feb. 17.
