'Late Night With Seth Meyers': Even Hillary Has A Few Jokes Seth Can't Tell

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of… you know what? Let’s not keep talking about it. It still hurts. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that Hillary Clinton dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to show us how to laugh again.

At first, it’s just another typically hilarious installment of “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell,” with Seth flanked by writers/wingwomen Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel. He tells the set up, they land the punchline, and everyone is happy. It’s good. It’s comforting. It’s familiar.

And then they introduce Hillary Fucking Clinton, because some jokes can only be told by the winner of the popular vote. While I don’t think she’ll be reinventing herself as a comedian anytime soon, it’s still nice to see her looking so relaxed and game. Especially yesterday, of all days.
