Although Hillary Clinton admitted she had not yet watched the new “Wonder Woman” movie, it did not stop her from comparing herself to the courageous super-heroine. Clinton recorded a video, drawing rather imaginative comparisons to the fictional character, to be aired at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Beverley Hills, California, Breitbart News reports.
After thanking Women in Film for helping to promote females in the industry, Hillary insinuated that both Wonder Woman and herself were on a quest to “save the world.”
Clinton’s states in her clip, “Now I haven’t seen ‘Wonder Woman’ yet, but I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins. … Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.”

Clinton did not acknowledge the fact she neither possesses any superpowers, nor saved the world from her version of an “international disaster” Donald Trump. There is nothing super or courageous about losing an election, so many viewers found the comparison a bit far fetched.

Clinton went on to congratulate one of her most fervent supporters, Elizabeth Banks, who received the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film that evening. A week before the 2016 presidential election, Banks appeared in a vulgar video featuring many celebrities, titled “Holy S**t, (You’ve Got to Vote).”
Clinton concluded her video, praising her friend Banks. The former presidential nominee said, “You’re not only a creative force in front of the camera and behind it, you are a passionate advocate for women’s equality and opportunity; I can vouch for that.”
“Wonder Woman” crushed earnings projections, raking in $103.1 million at the box office in its first weekend.
