Hillary Clinton. Not someone you’d say is “funny.” Not in a traditional, comedic sense anyway. But her stiffness, her coldness, her obvious need to consult with humans on how to interact with humans… she lends herself well to mockery. Remember the time she couldn’t use the subway card? Hillary Clinton, so old and robotic, her systems cannot interface with others.
If you can’t beat her, poke fun at her until her system overheats in a rage. In this parody, we’re deeming this operating version of Hillary “Pandering Hillary.” Yeah, we know. “Pandering Hillary” sounds like a Trump phrase and we’re better than that.
But in this case, it’s spot on accurate. Enjoy…
A little campy and cheesy sure, but still funny. The Goldman Sachs joke was good, plus art wound up imitating real life when you compare the “Hamilton” portion of it to Hillary claiming to carry hot sauce in her purse.
More importantly, it goes to what we say about the importance of engaging pop culture. This is what people – many of whom you’d think would be sympathetic to her policies – actually think of Hillary Clinton and who she is. And if this is how she is being portrayed, this is what everyone in the center are going to think every time they see her. What she’s saying or talking about won’t matter.
Side note: if you think this portrayal is similar to Kate McKinnon’s on SNL (see HILARIOUS: SNL Brilliantly Mocks Hillary and Bernie at #DemDebate and Even SNL Mocks Hillary Clinton’s Brutal String of Losses…), that might be because McKinnon has worked with the comedy troupe in the past.
Unfortunately Republicans chose the one person who couldn’t capitalize on that and who Americans hate more. But don’t say we didn’t warn you…
