Hillary Clinton Goes After Donald Trump on Zach Galifianakis’ ‘Between Two Ferns’

Hillary Clinton took a page out of President Obama’s playbook by appearing on Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns” hosted by Zach Galifianakis.

In the reoccurring sketch, Galifianakis plays a rude talk show host who batters his guests with inappropriate questions. Most of the comedian’s material this time around centers around being blatantly sexist. At one point he asks Clinton, “As secretary how many words per minute could you type?”

“Those are really out of date questions. You need to get out more,” she replies.

Clinton got a few jabs in against Donald Trump when Galifianakis also asks if she’ll move to Canada in the event that Trump wins the presidency.

“I would stay in the United States,” Clinton says. “I would try to prevent him from destroying the United States.”

When he asks if she would lead a Civil War she says, “I wouldn’t take up arms. That would be a little extreme.”

Toward the end of the sketch, Galifianakis says he needs to break for a commercial sponsor and plays a pro-Trump ad.

“Why would you play a commercial for my opponent in the middle of our interview?” Clinton asks.

“He paid me in steaks,” Galifianakis replies.

“I’d be afraid to eat them if I were you,” Clinton says.

To wrap up the skit, the comedian slips in an email jokes. “Well this has been a lot of fun Mrs. Clinton,” he says. “We should stay in touch. What’s the best way to reach you… email?”

Barack Obama appeared on “Between Two Ferns” in 2014 to try to get young people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
