Louis C.K.: It’s very exciting to have the first mother in the White House
Comedian Louis C.K. was a guest on Conan last night, and he made his voting intentions clear. Louis is all in for Hillary. Not just because she’s the most qualified person for the job, but because she’s a mom, dammit. As C.K. says, “We’ve had 240 years of fathers … bald father, fat father, every kind of father. … A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs, top. Tops out at 40 percent,” he added. “Any mother — like just a shit mother, like just a not-even-trying mother — 200 percent.”
C.K. is a smart man. Here’s the clip:

“I think she’s great,” he says. “It’s not a lesser of two evils, I think she’s great. I really like her. I think she’s talented, and I think she’s super smart, and I would take her over anybody. I really would.”
C.K. explained why it’s essential that a mom finally gets her shot at the White House. “To me, it’s very exciting to have the first mother in the White House. It’s not about the first woman, it’s about the first mom,” he said. “Because a mother, she’s got it. A mother just does it. … She feeds you, she teaches you, she protects you. She takes care of shit.”
Isn’t that the truth? Come on moms, you know it is.
He pulls no punches when it comes to saying how he feels about those who’ve chosen not to vote or have chosen to vote for Trump:
“If you vote for Hillary, you’re a grown-up. If you vote for Trump, you’re a sucker. If you don’t vote for anybody, you’re an asshole.”
