Amy Poehler and Hillary Clinton Play Nice at TIME 100 Gala (PHOTO)
Amy Poehler frequently poked fun at Hillary Clinton during (and even after) her tenure on Saturday Night Live, but at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City on April 24, the comedian and the Secretary of State looked quite happy as they posed for pictures together.
Amy — who was known for her spot-on Hillary impersonations — portrayed the current Secretary of State in politically-minded sketches that often centered around Hill’s failed run for president.
In one particularly hilarious sketch from 2008 Amy (as Hilary) held a press conference with Tina Fey (as Sarah Palin) in which they both urged the American media to leave sexism out of the election.
Sarah said, “So we ask reporters and commentators, stop using words that diminish us, like ‘pretty,’ ‘attractive,’ ‘beautiful,” and Hillary continued, “Harpy,’ ’shrew’ and ‘boner shrinker.’”
Despite Amy’s jokes at her expense, we were pleased to see that Hilldawg clearly doesn’t hold a grudge!
