Louis C.K. Wholeheartedly Endorses Hillary Clinton on ‘Conan’
Louis C.K. has not only endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for the U.S. presidency, but he’ll be voting for her enthusiastically come November 8.
The comedian sat down for an interview with Conan O’Brien where he explained why he thinks Clinton is the obvious better choice.
“It’s not a lesser of two evils, I think she’s great," he said. "I think she’s really talented and I think she’s super smart and I’d take her over everyone."
The Louie star continued, saying Clinton's motherhood will undoubtedly contribute to her ability to lead the country: "It’s really exciting to have the first mother in the White House…because a mother, she’s got it. A mother just does it. She feeds you and teaches you, she protects you, she takes care of you.”
C.K. also insisted he takes no issue "with anybody that votes for Trump, if that’s your ideology,” but he notes a Trump presidency would be nightmarish, if only because the former reality star doesn’t respond well to criticism.
"Every time he’s criticized, everything stops and he makes everybody pay…we need somebody that can take abuse," he continued. "Hillary Clinton can take abuse. We’ve been hazing her...and she just gets up and...keeps working."
The comedian summed up his thoughts on the election toward the tail end of the segment, saying, “I think 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 asshole."
