Louis C.K. Explains Why Hillary Clinton Is The Most Qualified Candidate

Louis C.K. Explains Why Hillary Clinton Is The Most Qualified Candidate In One Simple Analogy

For those baffled by the turbulent political climate the nation is experiencing, Louis C.K. explained the candidates and their qualifications with one simple analogy.

“It’s like if you were on a plane and you wanted to choose a pilot,” the “Louie” star said. “You have one person, Hillary, who says, ‘Here’s my license. Here’s all the thousands of flights that I’ve flown. Here’s planes I’ve flown in really difficult situations. I’ve had some good flights and some bad flights, but I’ve been flying for a very long time, and I know exactly how this plane works.’”

The comedian continued, saying, “Then you’ve got Bernie, who says, ‘Everyone should get a ride right to their house with this plane.’ ‘Well, how are you going to do that?’ ‘I just think we should. It’s only fair that everyone gets to use the plane equally.’ And then Trump says, ‘I’m going to fly so well. You’re not going to believe how good I’m going to fly this plane, and by the way, Hillary never flew a plane in her life.’ ‘She did, and we have pictures.’ ‘No, she never did it.’ It’s insane.”

and I hope Hillary takes some of them into account, but I agree that her qualifications trump (ahem) the others.

“Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler,” C.K. wrote, “And that voting for Trump is a way of saying ‘fuck it. Fuck them all.’ I really get it. It’s a version of national suicide. Or it’s like a big hit off of a crack pipe. Somehow we can’t help it.”
