Hillary Clinton Made A Surprise Appearance On “The Colbert Report” For A Name-Dropping Contest

“So she’s tight with the Prime Minister of Tanzania. Well, I happen to be e-mail pen pals with the Prince of Nigeria.”

1. Hillary Clinton stopped by the Colbert report last night for an unannounced appearance in which she name-dropped her way through a bit with the Comedy Central host.

3. The segment started with Colbert mocking the former Secretary of State’s new book Hard Choices, saying that the 656 page read is full of “shameless namedropping.”

4. Which did not impress Colbert. After all, he is “e-mail pen pals with the Prince of Nigeria.”

8. In the end, Clinton left Colbert with the hard choice: “Promote my book, or I will not appear on your show,” she said, before snapping her fingers and magically pixelating her head.


Of course, there was no mention of whether or not Clinton will run for President in 2016, but it sounds like she’ll have support from a lot of famous friends if she does.
