Hillary Clinton on Jimmy Kimmel

Is opposition to Hillary Clinton sexist-based or are there other factors?


Jimmy Kimmel: I know you think of your husband as your secret weapon but I feel like I am going to be your secret weapon. I am going to help you win this election no problem. Are you familiar with mansplaining?

Hillary Clinton: Yeah. That’s when a man explains something to a woman in a patronizing way.

Jimmy Kimmel: Actually, its when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending way but you were close.
So, mansplaining is a way that we men can help women be better. I’d love you to give me some of the lines from your stump speech. You do a little bit of that, then I’ll mansplain to you whatever problems I might see.

Hillary Clinton: So, I just start speaking?

Jimmy Kimmel: Yes, just go to the podium and do whatever it is you usually do. Is that what you’re going to wear to do this?

Hillary Clinton: Well, yeah I think…

Jimmy Kimmel: I think something a little more fun next time but not too fun. Serious but not too serious. You want to be stylish without looking like you’re trying to be stylish, and also presidential.

Hillary Clinton: Okay. Well, I’m just going to wear this.

Jimmy Kimmel: Okay you wear that.

Hillary Clinton: You just want me to talk?

Jimmy Kimmel: Just talk and a I’ll correct you whenever I feel the need.

Hillary Clinton: Well, thank you. It’s wonderful to be here with all of you–

Jimmy Kimmel: Wait a second. You’re shouting. You’re too loud. You don’t have to shout like that, it hurts my ears. It comes off as a little shrill for men. That’s all.

Hillary Clinton: Shrill?

Jimmy Kimmel: You’re making a speech, not an arrest so tone it down and try it again.

Hillary Clinton: Okay. I’ve got it. Thank you. It’s wonderful to be here with all of you no matter who you are, what you look like, or who you love, I’m fighting for you–

Jimmy Kimmel: You have to speak because we can’t hear you. You’re like a mouse up there. You know what would be nice? If you smiled, put a little bit of teeth.

Hillary Clinton: Okay. Alright. America is the greatest country on—

Jimmy Kimmel: Don’t smile like that because its too forced. It looks like you’re faking it. You know what you have to do? Ask yourself “do I want to be president or a Laker’s girl?”.

Hillary Clinton: Is that a real choice?

Jimmy Kimmel: Yeah. I think so. Its okay. Try it again. Go from wherever and just be careful with the face.

Hillary Clinton: We don’t need to be made great. We need to be made–

Jimmy Kimmel: Oh my God, with the sour puss. Try to have some fun. This is like your dream. Pretend you’re enjoying yourself.

Hillary Clinton: You know Jimmy, your comments are kind of contradictory. Its like nothing I do is right.

Jimmy Kimmel: Exactly. You’re not doing it right. I can’t quite put my finger on it but something- You’re not ummm…

Hillary Clinton: A man?

Jimmy Kimmel: Yes, that is it. You’re not a man but that was really cute the way you did it though.

Hillary Clinton: Well, thanks. That is what I was going for.

Jimmy Kimmel: Hillary Clinton everybody.
