8 Hillary Clinton One-Liners That Show The Presidential Hopeful Can Be Pretty Darn Hilarious

When the name Hillary Clinton is mentioned, the first adjective to immediately come to mind isn’t usually the word funny. Intelligent, yes. Powerful, definitely. Experienced, no doubt. The media has described her as “disciplined,” “tough,” “determined,” “ambitious,” and “confident.” Her opponents have labeled her as everything from “calculating” to “secretive.” But funny? Not so much.

Well, Clinton supporters, here’s another reason to love your candidate: She actually can be pretty darn funny. Sure, she might not seem the most humorous when she’s in full work mode, complete with her big sunglasses and her Blackberry, but she has had her moments of sass and silliness. She’s taken cracks at just about everything over the years — herself included. And since she’s been in politics since 1982, she’s had plenty of opportunities.

Here’s a look at eight of Clinton’s best one-liners through the years. And the jokes certainly run the gamut. She jokes about her pantsuits, her relationship with Bill, her hairstyle, Rudy Giuliani’s hairstyle, and, of course, Republicans. So, without further ado, here’s an article that might just make you chuckle, instead of offering the typical political updates on funding, favorability, and fumbles. Let’s take a break for just a minute from being so serious about 2016.

Frankly, Mr. Mayor, I think your new hairstyle is the right way to go. After all, in Washington, the cover up is always worse than the truth.
