Jimmy Kimmel Challenges Ellen With Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton Selfie (Photo)

After interviewing the former first family in Arizona, where he pressed Hillary on her plans for 2016, the late night host grabbed a picture with them, too

Maybe it didn't have the Hollywood star power Ellen DeGeneres‘ record-breaking Oscars selfie, but the former (and potential future) leader of the free world isn't bad company, either.

Jimmy Kimmel spent his Saturday evening at the Clinton Global Initiative University in Tempe, Arizona, interviewing the former first family of Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton, which isn't a bad way to pass the time. After the conversation, he grabbed the three backstage (along with a few of the 1,000 students in attendance) to take a pic on his cell phone, which he then tweeted and added to Facebook.

One assumes he'll also add it to his wall at the office.

Oh, and as for the interview, Kimmel mostly kept it light — the crowd learned that the Clintons really enjoy “Antiques Roadshow” on PBS — and that Hillary Clinton is still weighing her options when it comes to 2016.

“I am very much concerned about the direction of our country and it's not just who runs for office but what they do when they get there and how we bring people together and particularly empower young people so we can tackle these hard decisions,” she said, more or less dodging the question (which came from a young audience member).

    What difference does it make–eh, Hillary? Concerned? Sure–but not about those who lost their lives in Benghazi.

    • MARCO MARCOSI

      Give the stupid Republican Red Herring of Bengazi a rest. It was a tragic event whether you call it an act of terror or a terrorist act. The situation should never have happened. Greater security should have been in place. The incident has been fully investigated up one side and down the other. The fact that Republicans want to keep using this issue for political gain shows that it's merely a political issue not one of pure sorrow for the victims and their families. How many screw-ups and scandals could we use for political gain against past Republuxan administrations? I know the answer!

      • DCGirl

        I am a Democrat.

        • Darkthunder

          More like a DINO (Democrat In Name Only). How many lives were lost during Bush's tenure for 8 years as President? Where's the outcry about that? Where's the demands for justice?

      • Enough nonsense

        What about calling what it was. A MURDEROUS ACT.

  • davyjc

    Enough about Benghazi already! Libya is falling apart anyway

  • Alex R. Smith

    Dear people who take selfies: I am over you. Stop it.

    • zbz

      Right on. And I'm so over that cringe worthy dumb “selfie” word. Stop that too.

    • jacksonm

      Dear people who click and comment on articles they claim to be over: Stop it. You only contribute to increasing a problem you claim to want to stop. Get a freakin’ brain and realize your actions run counter to your words and just stop clicking on things you claim not to want to see.

      • Dumb

        Another dumb meme. Stop it.

  • Jesse Jones

    Is that Monica on Bill's right?

  • Keimo

    Don't care bout Benghazi, don't care bout Crimea.. I love this country… We have got to focus on us now…as far as selfies… Well whatever makes you happy I guess

  • Sigh

    Imitations of imitations of lameness. Our culture today.

    • jacksonm

      Physician, heal thyself.

      • Dumb

        You are a pointless presence. Beat it, troll. You probably stink up the room in real life, too.

      • Dumb

        Oh, just checked out your comment history. You're a strident bitter gay person. Enough said. Please go vent your life anger elsewhere.

  • Mark

    I think selfie is a stupid word, but this picture is awesome and Ellen's one was too.

    this is pathetic.

    So
    Libs….here is your Democrat Party and
    your beloved Hillary … Denounce and pull support for her or you show
    that you agree with her and her support for Margaret Sangers
    “VISION”..

    When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received Planned
    Parenthood’s highest honor, it came in the name of a woman who promoted
    eliminating “the unfit” from the human race.

    The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA)
    presented Clinton with the Margaret Sanger Award at its annual awards dinner
    March 27 in Houston, Texas. Sanger founded an organization in 1916 that became
    Planned Parenthood.

    Receiving the award is a “great privilege,” Clinton said
    after the presentation. “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her
    tenacity, her vision …. I am really in awe of her,” Clinton said. (Hillary admires Sangers vision and is awe of
    her….hmmmm)

    Who was Margaret Sanger??

    Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is often
    hailed as a champion of women’s rights in historical texts and classes. However, chronically neglected is her true
    disdain for minority groups in America and how she saw birth control as a way
    of limiting the populations of those she deemed unworthy of bearing children,
    even going so far as to advocate that married couples must submit applications
    in order to have children!

    Sanger published articles in her newsletter, the ”Birth
    Control Review,” that depicted her opinions that certain groups of people
    should have “never should have been born” and
    that birth control was intended to “create a race of thoroughbreds,” and
    ensure that society had “more children from the fit, less from the unfit.”

    Eugenics-advocate groups like the American Eugenics Society,
    of which Sanger was a listed member until 1956, suggested that the government
    should consider putting birth control chemicals in the food and water supplies
    in certain areas of the nation, specifically in urban areas that were dominated
    by minority groups. Sanger even
    suggested imposing a law that would disallow women from having children without
    first obtaining a permit from the government—a permit that would good for only
    one baby—and if approved, the couple would receive an antidote to counter the
    effects of the involuntarily ingested birth control chemicals.

    The Planned Parenthood founder made her views even more
    blatantly obvious in a letter she wrote to a woman named Katherine Dexter
    McCormick in 1950, saying she thought that “…there should be national sterilization
    for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed
    and would die out were the government not feeding them.” McCormick was very wealthy and she later went
    on to assist Sanger in developing and funding the birth control pill.

    That’s funny, because Planned Parenthood never mentions any
    of these views upon which they were founded in 1942. Although they honor Margaret Sanger annually
    (with the “Maggie Award”), they conveniently pick and choose which of her
    values to publicly celebrate and which to sweep under the rug. They would never consider condemning the
    twisted ideologies of this woman.

    However, Sanger’s opinions are still apparent today in
    Planned Parenthood, and the true intention of birth control is still
    deliberately hidden under the guise of “women’s liberation.” Their most recent epitome of this was
    portrayed when Planned Parenthood built the largest abortion facility in the
    western hemisphere in the center of four heavily minority areas; they blatantly
    showed that they still to this day target minority groups and continue to play
    out Sanger’s intentions for the organization.

    More Regarding
    Planned Parenthood…

    On Columbus
    Day in 1999…..Rev. Johnny M. Hunter… national director of Life, Education and
    Resource Network (LEARN), the largest black pro-life organization.

    ‘”Civil
    rights’ doesn’t mean anything without a right to life!” declared Hunter.
    He and the other marchers were protesting the disproportionately high number of
    abortions in the black community. The high number is no accident. Many
    Americans–black and white–are unaware of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret
    Sanger’s Negro Project. Sanger created this program in 1939, after the
    organization changed its name from the American Birth Control League (ABCL) to the
    Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA).

    The aim of
    the program was to restrict……many believe exterminate….the black population.
    Under the pretense of “better health” and “family
    planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is
    Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s créme de la créme–those
    prominent, well educated and well-to-do–into executing her scheme. Some within
    the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment,
    elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.

    The Negro Project
    has had lasting repercussions in the black community: “We have become
    victims of genocide by our own hands,” cried Hunter at the “Say
    So” march.

    Hillary and the
    Democrat Party has a strange idol to worship in Sanger.
