Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton received the honor of getting to chill with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, stars and creators of the wildly popular and hilarious Comedy Central show “Broad City,” in New York City Friday.
The honor was Ilana and Abbi’s as well. Being huge fans of Hillary Clinton, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer invited her on set and according to the tweeted photographs it seems like she has a guest spot on season three playing “Kween Hilary” herself.
Hilary has been a role model to more than just the Broads on Broad City. Earlier this year she sat down with HBO’s “Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham. It was a great way to reach out to Hillary’s potential supporters: Young women who want to see advancement in women’s roles in positions of power.
Fans of both Girls and Broad City are sure to agree with Hilary’s current stance on all issues dealing with women and their fight for equality. Spending time with these female leaders of the entertainment world, Hilary may dramatically increase her presence as a potential leader of the free world.
With German Chancellor Angela Merkel gracing the cover of Time magazine as person of the year, it’s looking more and more likely that women are finally being taken seriously as political leaders. And with shows like Broad City and Girls gearing up for their newest seasons, it’s looking more and more likely that women are finally being taken seriously as leaders and innovators in entertainment.
And for more than just their looks or being props to male characters in popular television. And with critically acclaimed films like “Joy”, “Carol” and Amy Poehler’s own “Sisters” it looks like women are finally being taken serious as leaders and successes in female driven films, focusing on them as actual people with goals, vision, dreams, and drive that revolves around their own well being and not the success or attention of a man.
Hillary Clinton has risen to a higher level of respect and adoration by taking a stand on her firm beliefs in gender equality, women’s health rights, and addressing the wage gap between men and women. It’s no wonder she has caught the attention of and inspired the female leaders in entertainment and art. Broad City was created by dynamic female duo Abbi and Ilana and is produced by Amy Poheler. Girls was created by Lena Dunham and is produced by Jenni Konner.
So a huge #YAS to Hilary and her team at twitter for remaining relevant and current without pandering or coming off as trying too hard (i.e. the Chillary Cilnton incident in Cedar Rapids). Hillary is a natural fit for these Broads. The internet can’t wait to see her collaborate with yet another hilarious and talented female team of our times.
