Come November, Bill Clinton may be the first male spouse of an American president, and on Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert looked at the ways the former president is preparing for the role.
“As America’s potential First Ladies’ Man, Bill Clinton is already making spousal history,” Colbert said. He recently participated in the Family Circle First Lady Cookie Contest, which dates back to 1992, when Hillary mocked the contest, saying, “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession.” This sentiment was taken as a criticism against stay-at-home moms.
The contest is now called the Presidential Cookie Poll, “because when you’re forcing the spouses of presidential candidates to be judged on their baking, you don’t want to sound sexist,” Colbert joked.
Bill Clinton actually used Hillary’s recipe for the competition. “Cmon, man. Who would’ve thought Bill Clinton was a cheater?” Colbert said, before advising the dormer president, “Be careful, Bill. You can’t just use all of Hillary’s old moves. First of all, you’re never going to fit into her inaugural gown.”
