Hillary Clinton appeared on Late Night Wednesday and joined Seth Meyers in his recurring segment, “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell.” In the bit, Seth is usually joined by Amber Ruffin, who is black, and Jenny Hagel, who is gay, so that they can tell the jokes a straight white man cannot tell.

This time they were joined by Clinton so that she could tell jokes nobody else could tell, particularly ones about being the first woman to be the presidential nominee of a major party.

The former candidate appears at the 3-minute mark in the video below.
