Between Two Ferns has been resurrected for the first time since 2014 to host Hillary Clinton, who tried out her best deadpan as Galifianakis asked her a series of uncomfortable questions. It was okay!

Questions—which generally received either no response or a very curt one, in Between Two Ferns tradition—included:

“Are you excited to be the first girl president?”

“Not to take away from the historical significance of you perhaps becoming the first female president, but for a younger younger generation you would also become their first white president, and that’s pretty neat too?”


“What happens if you become pregnant?”

“When you see how well it works for Donald Trump, do you ever think, ‘Oh, maybe I should be more racist?’”

“Any regrets losing the Scott Baio vote?” (“Not a one.”)

After that excellent Baio burn, the pair chatted a bit about what the two candidates will wear to the first debate. Clinton assumed Trump will wear “that red power tie.”


“Or maybe a white power tie,” Galifianakis suggested.
