Hillary Clinton Makes Surprise Appearance on Murphy Brown

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton, exercising her comedic chops, made a surprise guest appearance on CBS's Murphy Brown.

The politician, in a joking nod to her 2016 presidential campaign, arrived at the title character's fictional cable news show as a candidate for a secretarial position.

"I want you to know I'm not afraid of hard work, I'm qualified, and ready on day one," Clinton told anchor Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen).

When Brown seemed taken aback by her resemblance to, well, herself, Clinton said, "I get that a lot." She clarified that her name, "Hilary Clendon," had the first name spelled with only one "l."

Going over her credentials, the former secretary of State noted that she had once been a secretary "of a very large organization," and "I do have some experience with emails."

After Brown remarked she was "maybe a little over-qualified" for the position, Clinton gave the reporter her card before leaving. The email address? Hilary@youcouldhavehadme.com.

The revival of Murphy Brown premiered Thursday, 20 years after its original run ended. The acclaimed series, which shows the behind-the-scenes workings of a television newsmagazine, came back in response to the election of Donald Trump and his attacks on journalism.

The premiere, embracing the spirit of The Resistance, aimed several jokes at the president, including a segment that featured a Twitter war between Trump and Brown.
