As is the case with many other episodes of the “Funny or Die” web hit, “Between Two Ferns,” comedian and host Zach Galifianakis has provided hilarious one-line zingers during his latest interview with Hillary Clinton. But it is the career politician’s stone-cold side-eye in reaction to Galifianakis’ antics that makes the five-minute comedy sketch worth your time.
Clinton and her campaign have made a concerted push for the youth vote this week, as polling has shown a significant portion of millennials support third-party candidates over the Democratic presidential nominee. Her turn at “Funny or Die” is likely to get ample attention from just those voters.
“Critics have often questioned your decision-making and by you doing this show, I hope, it finally lays that to rest,” Galifianakis said to open the interview.
“Oh I think it absolutely proves their case,” she shot back.
“Not to take away from the historic significance of you perhaps becoming the first female president,” the “Baskets” star and co-creator continued, “but for a younger, younger generation, you will also become their first white president, and that’s pretty neat, too.”
Some of other hilarious questions from Galifianakis to Clinton included:
“When you went to Donald Trump’s wedding, did he write his own vows? And did Michelle Obama write Melania’s?”
“What happens if you become pregnant?”
“Are you down with TPP?”
“As secretary how many words per minute could you type?”
“Any regrets over losing the Scott Baio vote?”
In the interview, Galifianakis asked Clinton if she would do as many anti-Trump celebrities have vowed and move to Canada if Donald Trump won.
“I would stay in the United States,” she replied. “I would try to prevent him from destroying the United States.”
“So you’re gonna lead the civil war?” Galifianakis followed up.
“No I wouldn’t take up arms. I think that might be a little extreme,” Clinton said, with Galifianakis adding that the former secretary of state told him before the interview began that she “wanted to take away everyone’s guns.”
When the comedian later asked Clinton what she thought Trump would put on for the first debate, Clinton answered that he’d probably wear a “red power tie.”
“Or a white power tie,” Galifianakis hilariously shot back.
“That’s even more appropriate,” Clinton agreed.
Galifianakis then aired a Trump ad during a commercial break.
“Why would you play a commercial from my opponent?” Clinton asked.
“He paid me in steaks,” the host replied.
“I’d be afraid to eat them if I were you,” she told him.
