Stephen Colbert Gets Women From 1776 To React To The First Female Presidential Nominee

"Broad City" stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer do some time traveling.

Hillary Clinton made history on Thursday night, becoming the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party ― and it was a long time coming.

In response, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert went back to 1776 to see how two women delegates at the Second Continental Congress felt about the milestone. Joining him were Josephine Henley and Abitha Whitmore, who looked an awful lot like Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of “Broad City.”

Check it out in the clip above. It’s mother-butter crazy.
