Hillary Clinton’s notorious email scandal is now the but of sitcom jokes. Clinton’s cameo on the debut episode of the new “Murphy Brown” sitcoms included a gag about her being secretary of state and a reference to her maintaining an illegal private email server while she was on that job

“For four years I was the secretary … of a very large organization,” Clinton explained. “I do have some experience with emails.” She offered some homespun advice on producing a news show too: “Everyone works together. It takes a village.”

Brown thought “Hilary,” as he was named in the show, was “very impressive” but “maybe a little overqualified,” according to Variety.

Clinton’s donned her requisite pantsuit for the television role that had her looking for secretarial work at the fictional cable news show, “Murphy in the Morning.”

“Murphy Brown” was originally on-air from 1988 to 1998 and was now for its liberal political comment, including an infamous interjection into the 1988 presidential campaign when her character questioned the real-life comments of then-vice presidential candidate Dan Quayle who questioned the show’s positive depiction of being a single mother.
