Hillary Clinton Makes Surprise Appearance on 'The Colbert Report'


The former First Lady plays hilarious name-drop game with Stephen Colbert and has the funnyman promote her new book.

Hillary Clinton made an unannounced visit to "The Colbert Report" on Tuesday night, August 5. The segment began with Stephen Colbert commenting on her new book "Hard Choices", which chronicled her four years as secretary of state.

"Here is the Colbert review: This book is 656 pages of shameless name dropping," the soon-to-be "Late Night" successor said of the book which mentioned Clinton's meetings with important persons from Tanzania's prime minister to Bono. The former First Lady then popped out from backstage and the crowd began chanting her name, while Colbert showed expression of surprise.

The two then challenged each other in a name-drop game. "Name-dropper? That's not what my good friend Tom Hanks calls me ... when we're hanging out at George Clooney's place," Colbert started first. Clinton responded, "Oh, I love George. I wish he could have joined us when I had lunch with Meryl Streep and Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa."

Colbert then bragged about camping with "Raffi" and Oprah Winfrey, sharing an office with Steve Carell, and doing an entire show with President Bill Clinton. The former U.S. Senator replied, "I hate to break this to you Stephen, but I've met him, too."

Clinton then gave Colbert "a hard choice." "Your choice: Promote my book, or I will not appear on your show," she said. When the host said that she had already appeared on his show, her head became pixilated. "I learned that from George Lucas," she claimed.

"Fine, fine. Buy 'Hard Choices'," Colbert said. "Buy it in bookstores everywhere where there are still bookstores."
