And Now, Here’s Your First Look at Hillary Clinton on Broad City
In a move that is neither endorsement nor snarky skewering, tomorrow night’s episode of Broad City will feature Hillary Clinton. And now, before you watch the teensy clip of Clinton’s entrance and Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson’s subsequent reaction, let’s consider the question posed by Vulture’s Nate Jones: “Mainly, wooooooouuuuuullllldddd Ilana Wexler, the fictional Broad City character, really be a Hillary Clinton supporter?”
I sort of agree: fictional Ilana Wexler seems like she cosplays with Lincoln as Bernie Sanders, complete with baggy suit and exhortations about Wall Street. Like, she probably argues with Abbi over and over and over again about precisely WHY Hillary is basically a Republican and spams their text with Talking Points Memo thinkpieces while she’s flirting with Trey. But! Hillary is a woman. Ilana Wexler is a woman. By the transitive property(I’m bad at math), Ilana is a Hillary supporter. It just seems right.
Don’t take my word for it. Check out the clip for yourself.
