Louis CK told Conan O’Brien that he’s supporting Hillary Clinton — but his reasoning may surprise readers.
“It’s not a lesser of two evils. I think she’s great,” CK said during O’Brien’s Tuesday Apollo Theater show. “I really like her. I think she’s really talented and I think she’s super smart.”
“I would take her over anybody,” he added. “And, to me, it’s really exciting to have the first mother in the White House. That’s what I think. It’s not about the first woman – it’s about a mom.
O’Brien asked his friend to elaborate on that point.
“A mother — she’s got it. A mother just does it,” CK explained. “She feeds you, and teaches you, she protects you — she takes care of s–t.”
“We’ve had 240 years of fathers. Father after father. Bald father, fat father,” he went on. “And fathers are OK. A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs, tops. Any mother, just a s–t mother, a not-even-trying mother: 200 percent.”
And that’s exactly what the country needs right now — “a tough bitch mother,” in CK’s words.
But most importantly, the comic just wants Americans to exercise their right to vote — especially you, Democrats. Toward the tail end of his time on the TBS show, CK called any liberal that isn’t going to vote “a piece of s–t.”
