Last night, Hillary Clinton made history by becoming the first female nominee for president from any major American political party. Regardless of how people feel about her policies, most can agree that it was a pretty big moment for women.
Earlier this year, Clinton appeared on Broad City, a show about two fierce young women who put their friendship ahead of everything else in their lives. The co-creators and stars of the show are Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and they are just as into female empowerment in real life as they are on television. As they’ve done in the past, they appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to celebrate the big moment.
As Josephine Hindley and Abatha Whitmore, the ladies react with joy and a lot of references to butter when they find out that Clinton got the nomination. As the bit progresses, though, they realize that it takes 240 years for a woman to even be nominated, let alone become the president.
They don’t end up as excited as they started out. See for yourself above.
