The Hillary Clinton Intro On 'Broad City' Was Everything You'd Expect


There will probably be a lot of hot takes today surrounding Hillary Clinton's appearance on Wednesday night's episode of "Broad City." There will probably be a lot of "Will it or won't it help her?" talk. Probably some Bernie Bros.™ will be mad at the presidential candidate's attempt to take advantage of a cameo to drum up interest among younger demographics.

Whatever. The episode was funny, but no part more so than the moment when Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer set eyes on her.


The episode revolves around Ilana temporarily volunteering for the Hillary Clinton campaign. But before you get all worked up about the political ramifications of this critical moment in American history, take a breath. On Saturday, Jacobson made clear at a panel at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, that there's no implicit, secret agenda here. 

“We were not trying to make a statement, to be honest,” Jacobson said. “That’s not our show, really: Let’s make a political stance here. It was really more that this is something Ilana’s character would do."

Your move, Bernie Bros.™
