The ‘Broad City’ Girls Want You to Know They’re Still Not Endorsing Hillary
Hillary Clinton made a cameo appearance on “Broad City” last night â€” but the show’s stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson want you to know that for them, RTs (or show appearances) do not equal endorsements.
At SXSW, the comedians talked about the appearance and AbbiÂ sworeÂ they “weren’t trying to make a political statement,” the Daily Beast reports.
â€œRegardless of where we standâ€”and we love Hillaryâ€”Hillary is such an iconic figure,” AbbiÂ said. “That’s someone that, being around someone like that, these girls being around her is not an everyday thing. That’s how we felt being around her. It was like, â€˜Oh, this is a different world.â€™â€
â€œBecause sheâ€™s this icon,â€ IlanaÂ added. â€œWeâ€™re trying to make really good TV. I think youâ€™ll watch the episode and think you’ll agree that itâ€™s a great episode of TV.â€
People who insist they don’t want toÂ take a stand on sex, religion, or politics are boring af and we know Abbi and Ilana are NOT that. Or hey, maybe they’re justÂ down-low Bernie brosÂ and he was busy the day they shot this.
Either way, Abbi got to say “I pegged” to Hillary Clinton on national TV, so at least there’s that.
