Jimmy Kimmel schools Hilary Clinton on how to campaign like a man

In between touring the country, getting grilled by the press and actually running for president, Hillary Clinton has spent this election season making the pop culture rounds. She's appeared on Broad City and SNL and last night, she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live. Kimmel put Clinton to work sharing her ideas and stumping on his platform. Of course, her speech doesn't last long before Kimmel interrupts her with a dose of mansplaining, aka when a man explains something in a patronizing tone (likely something she already knows) to a woman. The most genius part? He was mansplaining about Clinton's definition of mansplaining.

Kimmel tried to one-up Clinton's definition of mansplaining, saying, "Actually, it’s when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending way. But you were close." It's refreshing to see a late-night host handle a poignant issue so well.

The two blatantly pointed how much Clinton's gender has affected her campaign. “It’s like nothing I do is right," Clinton says mockingly.

"Exactly," Kimmel agrees. "You’re not doing it right. I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s something. It’s that you’re not..." The answer, obviously, is "...a man," Clinton finishes.

Bernie Sanders also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, tackling his go-to issues of campaign finance reform, climate change and legalizing marijuana.
