If Hillary Clinton wins the election next month, she will become the first woman president in U.S. history — but she would be far from the first female leader on the current world stage. Chile, Norway, Croatia, and other countries all have female leaders. On Monday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee interviewed some of them at the United Nations to see if they faced the same misogyny in their own countries that Clinton does in the U.S. The short answer: yes.

“I have seen misogyny come down, but it did not disappear,” Chilean President Michelle Bachelet told Bee. “For example, if a president would be moved by something, his eyes would be full of tears, he would be sensitive. If you do something like that, you’re hysterical… You have to be active but calm, and I can do that.”

Bee determined that one of Grabar-Kitarović’s photoshopped doppelgänger was Coco Austin, and subsequently had Austin on the show to hilariously refute the similarity.

“That’s Coco, and I’m not the president of Croatia,” Austin said. “Honestly, I’m tired of having to defend her pro-Eurozone debt reduction policies. I don’t have an opinion.”

Bee also spoke with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. “Why are men afraid of women?” asked Albright. “I think we’re seen in whatever previous relationship they have had, like the third grade teacher who told Johnny to be nicer.”
