Louis C.K. Hilariously Explains Why We Need A Mother As President

The comedian had an interesting case to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Louis C.K. isn't voting for Hillary Clinton because she's a woman, he's voting for her because she's a mother. In an appearance on Tuesday night's Conan, he made a hilarious and unique case that America is in need of a mother. He didn't exactly mince words about it, either.

"We've had 240 years of fathers, father after father. Bald father, fat father, every kind of father," he said. "A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs, tops. Tops out at 40 percent. Any mother, just a shit mother, just a not-even-trying mother? 200 percent."

While we don't necessarily endorse the idea that there's any sort of gender-based disparity when it comes to parenting abilities, C.K.'s cheeky comments spark an interesting conversation about having a woman in The White House. 

When Conan pushed him about his support, he even admitted that he wasn't looking for someone that was "likable" or "cool" anymore. Then he went full stand-up mode and took a stance we haven't heard any Americans take before.

"We need a two-faced, conniving, crazy [person], somebody who's got a million schemes," he said. "By the way, all her shit is out there, every email she ever wrote is in the newspapers, and she's not in jail, which is amazing. But we need just a tough bitch mother, who nobody likes, who just does shit."

Was it a graceful endorsement? No. A tasteful one? No. A unique one? Definitely.

And when it comes to needing more mothers in our lives, that's definitely something we can get behind.
