The debut of the reboot of the classic sitcom Murphy Brown Thursday featured a painful cameo of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
In the scene, Murphy Brown (reprised by Candice Bergen) is looking for a secretary for the TV studio where she is a news anchor and her first applicant is none other than Hillary Clinton.
“Hello, I’m hear to interview for the secretarial position,” Clinton tells a shocked Brown.
“God,” Brown says. “You look just like-”
“I know, Hillary Clinton. I get that a lot,” Clinton responded. “But my name is spelled with one ‘L.’”
They then sit down where Brown continues questioning Clinton, telling her that it’s a “demanding job”m who responded that isn’t afraid of hard work and that she’s “qualified and ready on Day One.”
“And I also assume you’ve had previous experience secretarial experience?” Brown asked.
“Absolutely. For four years, I was the secretary… of a very large organization,” replied Clinton
“And you have all the requisite skills? Computer? Email?” Brown inquired.
“Emails… I do have some experience with emails,” Clinton deadpanned.
Brown told Clinton that she was “impressive” and “maybe overqualified” and said she would have to think it over.
Clinton gave Brown her business card, before leaving which contained her email address.
“Hillary@YouCouldHaveHadMe.com,” Brown read from the business card.
If it wasn’t for the laugh track, viewers wouldn’t have known when to laugh as Clinton’s attempt at comedy was as pained as the look in her face.
