Unsuccessful 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made an embarrassing attempt to be humorous on a late-night TV show by taking an nasty shot at the mental faculties of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Breitbart reported.
Clinton, along with her daughter Chelsea, appeared Tuesday on CBS’s Late Late Show with host James Corden, where she quipped that “aliens” had somehow managed to claim Giuliani’s brain.
“Aliens have seized his brain”
The remark followed a skit in which Clinton and Corden had jokingly discussed the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, an effort that has now also ensared Giuliani — one of Trump’s personal attorneys — due to his own unofficial diplomacy on behalf of the president in Ukraine.
Corden said: “Rudy Giuliani is a key player in all of this and you know him well from your time as a New York senator. Tell me, from your opinion, does his current behavior surprise you at all?”
“Totally,” Clinton replied with a laugh. “Yes, I mean, he was a tough guy, he was a mayor, he was mayor during 9/11. I was a senator, I worked with him, and I don’t know what happened… It’s almost like aliens have seized his brain,” she added, garnering applause and laughter from the audience.
Chelsea piles on
Clinton proceeded to accuse Giuliani of repeatedly saying things that were “demonstrably untrue,” such as claiming that she’d never been at Ground Zero following the 9/11 terrorist attack that brought down the World Trade Center’s twin towers in 2001.
She pointed out that there were pictures of her standing beside him in the aftermath of that terrible event. “So I’m looking at that and thinking, ‘truly, he’s been possessed,'” she said.
She went on: “I don’t understand when it happened, but it is a very clear case of a man who has gone over the edge — probably pushed.”
Clinton’s daughter Chelsea chimed in that Giuliani needed an “exorcism” and Corden agreed, even jokingly calling for Giuliani to come on the program for a “taped bit” in which they would “pull the demons from him.” Watch below:
This joke was not particularly funny, and it serves to further reinforce just how bitter Hillary Clinton remains toward President Trump and those around him following her humiliating loss in the 2016 election.
If anything, this performance conclusively demonstrates that it really is time for Mrs. Clinton to retreat to the woods around her Chappaqua, New York home for good. Otherwise, it seems all but inevitable that she will continue to embarrass herself on the national stage.
