Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fielded questions from Zach Galifianakis on his Funny Or Die show “Between Two Ferns.”
Galifianakis jokingly peppered Clinton with questions about how fast she could type as secretary (of state) and how President Barack Obama likes his coffee.
You know #ImWithHer and everything so I am supposed to be supportive, but this did not work for me. It really didn't.
I know that Hillary is attempting to reach out to the millenials and that is a good thing, but this is really not her thing.
She does just fine on talk shows, she gives good speeches, and she is going to crush Trump in the debates, but this was a swing and a miss in my opinion.
Especially since it invariably invites a comparison to President Obama's appearance with Galifianakis, which is a really bad idea.
The President is a natural comedian with great timing, and a gift for self deprecating humor. He never seems to take himself very seriously, but he takes the job quite seriously, and it shows.
Hillary does not need to emulate President Obama, she just needs to be herself and explain to the American people, including the millenials, why she is a far better choice than her opponent Donald Trump.
That really should not be that difficult.
