Jordan Klepper, host of a new television series “Klepper” on Comedy Central, recently met with former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to discuss funding people’s crowdfunding efforts online.
While doing so, Klepper got Clinton to read from the Mueller report, including the line in which President Donald Trump uttered an expletive to explain his feelings when he learned of the appointment of a special counsel to investigate him.
Klepper’s program highlights worthwhile causes to donate to, helping political and social activists across the country to fund their efforts, per the program’s official website. Klepper sat with the Clinton’s, who he called “trusty advisers,” to figure out which crowdfunding goals they’d contribute to.
Klepper had $1,000 to give away. Among the few causes they highlighted in the segment, they stumbled upon one GoFundMe page that was seeking to raise funds to create an audiobook of Hillary Clinton reading the Russia investigation report compiled by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to reporting from Rolling Stone.
Clinton, who won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College (and thus, the presidential election) to Trump, read a line within the Mueller report describing Trump’s reaction to Mueller being appointed to special counsel.
Clinton agreed she thought the cause of creating the audiobook was a good one, and decided to read from the report for the segment to help get it started. “The investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency,” she read.
Klepper decided to interject and give her a “couple of notes.” He told her, for example, that she should read it “like you mean it,” and to “feel it” as she went through the lines of Mueller’s report.
“Imagine like you have a history with this,” he added.
Clinton re-read the line, and continued reading other passages, including the infamous one in which Trump realized Mueller had been appointed special counsel.
“The president slumped back in his chair and said, ‘Oh my God, this is terrible, this is the end of my presidency. I’m f***ed,'” Clinton read.
Her husband and Klepper looked at each other, with Bill nodding. “I’d listen to that audiobook,” Klepper mused.
