A former president took a shot at another former president last year when asked a question on a late-night talk show.
What Happened: In a June 2022 appearance on “Late Late Show With James Corden,” former President Bill Clinton was a featured guest.
The economy, international relations and aliens were among the key topics the duo talked about.
Corden also asked Clinton to take part in a segment called “Ask a President,” which had members of the audience and staff ask the former president questions.
The show, which aired on Paramount Global PARA PARAA owned channel CBS, saw Clinton answer what makes a good leader, what plant-based milk is the best and if we could see a woman president.
Clinton answered yes that we will likely see a woman president, a Latino president and a gay president over the coming years.
Clinton also shared that he drinks almond milk, but it is vodka that is his favorite plant-based drink.
For a question about fictional presidents, he answered: "I like Tony Goldwyn, I like Martin Sheen, I liked Michael Douglas, I loved Harrison Ford and Morgan Freeman and Donald Trump."
Why It’s Important: Trump served as the 45th president of the U.S. In the 2016 election, Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, the wife of Bill Clinton.
There is a long-standing feud between Hillary Clinton and Trump, which likely led to the comments by Clinton on the late night talk show. The rest of the names singled out by Clinton portrayed presidents in movies or on television shows.
Hillary Clinton has ruled out another run for president, while Trump launched his 2024 presidential campaign on Nov. 15.
Trump-owned Trump Media & Technology Group is working to become a publicly traded company with a pending SPAC merger with Digital World Acquisition Corp DWAC.
