- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a cameo in Thursday night’s “Murphy Brown” premiere.
- In the cameo, Clinton applies for a secretary position, saying that she is very qualified, having worked as a secretary for “a very large organisation.”
- CBS kept the cameo a secret, even cutting it out of advance episodes it sent to critics.
Since losing the 2016 election but winning the popular vote, Hillary Clinton has kept a fairly low profile. But on Thursday night she made a surprise national appearance in the first episode of CBS’s reboot of “Murphy Brown,” a cameo kept so secret that it even caught critics off guard, as the footage wasn’t included in advanced screener episodes.
The former Secretary of State only made a brief appearance in the episode, but she wasn’t afraid to lean in to some self-deprecating humour.
In the cameo, Clinton applies to to be a secretary for investigative journalist Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen). She walks into the newsroom in one of her trademark pantsuits (this one is bright red). Clinton jokes that she looks exactly like Hillary Clinton and has the same name, but she spells hers “with one L.”
Murphy Brown then asks “Hilary” Clinton if she has previous secretarial experience.
“Absolutely. For four years I was the secretary of a very large organisation.” She also said, “I do have some experience with emails.”
