Hillary Clinton has lost yet again, and she can’t blame it on the Electoral College. In an episode of her upcoming Apple TV+ series Gutsy, the former secretary of state competes in a general legal knowledge quiz with the most powerful woman on the planet (Kim “no one wants to work anymore” Kardashian), and Kim easily defeats Hil.
As you may know, Clinton was a successful lawyer before becoming the first lady, even becoming a partner at her firm, and Kardashian is currently studying for the bar. According to the former senator, this gave the reality star an edge.
“I think Kim has an unfair advantage,” Clinton says in the episode, which was previewed by People. “Kim has studied more recently than you,” says her daughter and cohost Chelsea.
The final score ends up being 11 to Kim (who, yes, voted for her), and 4 to Hil. Yikes, I’m having 2016 flashbacks.
“We didn’t interview her about fashion [or] her personal life,” Hillary Clinton told People of the episode, one of eight in the series, which premieres on September 9.
“We interviewed about what she was doing to help get people who were unjustly or unfairly incarcerated to have a second chance.” Added Chelsea, “She’s very self-aware that her celebrity can make a difference positively, and where it may make a negative difference.
She never wants to make a negative difference, so being judicious and thoughtful about when and where, and how she engages was really impressive to us. I want, even beyond this series, to do whatever I can to help her in that work.”
Gutsy will also include interviews with powerful women such as Dr. Jane Goodall, Gloria Steinem, Wanda Sykes, and others. Check out the first trailer, here:
