Colbert talks to women from 1776 about Hillary’s historic nomination

On Thursday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert went live via satellite to the second Continental Congress in 1776 to talk with two female delegates about the historic nomination of a woman for president. Hillary Clinton was officially nominated this week and Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer could not be more excited.

Stephen: I just wanted you to know that it’s 2016, and we finally have a female presidential nominee!

Abbi: Well, butter my bonnet! That’s incredible. I’m going to celebrate by making a meal for my husband, and then cleaning it up immediately.

Ilana: Hear that, Ben Franklin? Women are on top! And not just your French whores.

Abbi: I can’t believe, that in the year 1816 we final have a female president!

Colbert: No, no, I’m sorry – I said 2016.

Ilana: Get the butter out of the barn! Are you telling me it takes us 240 years to get a female president?

Colbert: Well, it’s just a nominee. She hasn’t been elected or anything.

Abbi: What the butter is wrong with you people?! Why did it take so long? It’s right there in the Declaration of Independence: “All Men –”

Abbi and Ilana: “All men are created –” ohhhh….

Ilana: You knew that was supposed to mean all people, right?

Stephen: We figured it out eventually.
