Stephen Colbert was trashing Hillary Clinton’s memoir, “Hard Choices,” as one big festival of name-dropping. “There is no way on Earth one woman can be in so many places at once,” the host of The Colbert Report said.
In walked Clinton.
“I know Paul McCartney,” Colbert said last night at the start of a clearly scripted showdown of name-dropping.
“I negotiated with Hamid Karzai,” the former secretary of state said.
“Name-dropper? ” Colbert said. “That’s not what my good friend Tom Hanks calls me… when we’re hanging out at George Clooney‘s place.”
“Oh, I love George,” Clinton replied. “I wish he could have joined us when I had lunch with Meryl Streep and Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.”
“I will have you know, madam, I once did an entire show with President Bill Clinton,” Colbert said.
“Oh, I hate to break this to you, but I’ve met him too,” the former first lady said.
