Jimmy Kimmel And Hillary Clinton Perfectly Troll The Sexist Advice She Gets

Jimmy Kimmel gave Hillary Clinton a lesson on "mansplaining" on his show Thursday night.

As Clinton said, mansplaining is "when a man explains something to a woman in a patronizing way," or as Kimmel said,

Actually, it's when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending way -- but [Hillary was] close.

Women deal with mansplaining all the time, but Clinton gets a huge amount of it as commentators are always monitoring her behavior.

When she spoke passionately at a debate, for instance, she was accused of being too caustic, and when she gave a primary night speech last week, she was criticized for not smiling.

Kimmel made light of this trend by saying it all to her face, explaining,

You don't have to shout like that, it hurts my ears. It comes off a little shrill, for men.

The skit ended with Clinton remarking,

It's like nothing I do is right.

Kimmel mused,

Exactly. You're not doing it right. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something is not -- you're not, umm..

Clinton finished his sentence by saying, "a man?"

It was all in good fun, but in reality, these comments -- and worse -- are seriously made about Clinton.
