American comedian Louis C.K. stopped by Harlem to talk a little with Conan O’Brien on his late-night talk show ‘Conan’ on Tuesday night. The host took the opportunity to ask the stand-up legend for whom he was voting, and he answered with an endorsement for Hillary Clinton.
Louis C.K. is the latest celebrity in a long list of high-profile names to endorse the Democratic candidate. Most recently, Joss Whedon launched ‘Save the Day, an all-star campaign featuring the stars of ‘The Avengers’ along with other Hollywood figures in support for voter registration and Hillary Clinton.
In the meantime, President Barack Obama is doing the rounds on late-night shows as well, being featured at length last week on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’ The U.S. leader will also show up to talk with Bill Maher on ‘Real Time’ the weekend before Election Day.
Louis C.K. believes America needs a mother in the White House
Before openly coming out as a Clinton supporter in ‘Conan,’ Louis C.K. talked a little with the iconic host as a featured guest on Tuesday night.
The stand-up comedian and the veteran host exchanged stories of New York City, as the show is not taping at its usual studio set at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.
The star of FX’s “Louie” talked about an unfortunate encounter with a series of typical dwellers of the great concrete jungle. Louis C.K. described his hilarious run-ins with inhospitable New Yorkers in the street, stores, and the subway.
However, he got serious for a minute to talk about the upcoming election. C.K. did not hesitate to say he was going to vote for Hillary Clinton on Election Day and provided further insight by saying the American people need a mother as president.
Louis C.K. thinks Hillary’s schemes are exactly why the U.S. needs her
The comedian went on to talk about how mothers just get stuff done regardless of the situation, and how Hillary adopts a very mother-like stance in the face of hardships.
O’Brien and a majority of the audience agreed with C.K., who then addressed the elephant in the room and said Clinton’s schemes are also an asset for a U.S. president. The 49-year-old claimed he didn’t want a cool guy anymore, just someone who gets things done above all else.
“We need just a tough b*tch mother who nobody likes,” C.K. said to Conan. “If you vote for Hillary, you’re a grown-up. If you vote for Trump, you’re a sucker. If you don’t vote for anybody, you’re an a**hole,” he sentenced as the audience cheered.
‘Conan’ is currently shooting one of its featured series of episodes on location at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in New York City. ‘Conan’ airs on TBS Mondays through Thursdays at 11 pm ET.
