Hillary Clinton joined The Daily Show correspondents Desi Lydic and Dulcé Sloan on Monday night and lent her voice to a musical assemble meant to highlight and celebrate some of the victories women achieved in 2017.
“If there’s one group of people who have defined this year, it’s been women,” Daily Show host Trevor Noah said before the comedic musical number began. “So we asked Desi Lydic and Dulcé Sloan for their thoughts and they gave us a whole song.”
The six-minute music video for the song, titled “Song for Women 2017 (featuring DJ Mansplain), sees the former Democratic presidential candidate singing high pitch notes inside a music studio as other vocalists belt out lyrics like, “Keeping it feminine, this mess we’ve been in. Our lady dicks are swinging, sick of all this winning.”
The song features lyrics about Wonder Women’s theatrical success, the anti-President Donald Trump Women’s March, and the sex misconduct scandal engulfing much of Hollywood.
Since losing to Trump in last November’s historic election, Hillary Clinton has kept her name in the headlines. Clinton traveled the country earlier this year promoting her campaign post-mortem, What Happened, and has been an increasingly prominent presence in Robert Mueller’s increasingly tainted investigation into President Trump and his election campaign.
Earlier this month Clinton appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and said the congressional Republican agenda is fanning the flames of “white supremacy and misogyny and homophobia.”
