Parks and Recreation: Hillary Clinton is a fan
Though some might object to powerful depictions of awesome ladies, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is not one of them.
A slew of Clinton’s emails were released by the State Department on Monday, and revealed that between menu-planning and tea-drinking, the former Secretary of State was hoping to tune into NBC’s Parks and Recreation, as well as the CBS drama The Good Wife.
In a “Happy New Year!” email to aide Monica Hanley discovered by GQ, Clinton asked: “Can you give me times for two TV shows: Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife?”
According to Parks and Rec creator Mike Schur’s interview with HitFix back in March, Clinton was the dream guest star the series never landed due to the show’s time jump.
“That became impossible once we jumped to 2017, because we would’ve had to have answered a question that she probably wouldn’t have wanted us to even pose at this point,” Schur said.
Amy Poehler’s character once referred to Clinton as “the strongest, smartest punching bag in the world,” and she was one of the many powerful women Leslie displayed photos of in her office.
Leslie would be so proud.
