Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton compared Trump’s presidency to a “massive international disaster” while casting herself as a Wonder Woman-like heroine trying to “save the world.”
Appearing, to the surprise of attendees, in a video intended to honor actress Elizabeth Banks at the Women in Film Los Angeles’ Crystal + Lucy Awards in California, Clinton said, “Now I haven’t seen ‘Wonder Woman’ yet, but I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins.”
Then, Clinton made a bizarre statement about her resemblance to the action heroine during her campaign against Donald Trump.
“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 jested.
Clinton went on to congratulate Banks, who was there to accept the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, on her professional success, as well as her efforts to achieve “women’s equality.”
“[Banks] is such a special person, again, on screen and off. 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,” Clinton says in the video.
Banks supported Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, speaking at the Democratic National Convention on her behalf last year. During that appearance, Banks poked fun at Donald Trump with a parody of his dramatic entrance at the Republican National Convention the previous week. After exaggerating the entrance, Banks reached the podium and addressed the audience saying, “I don’t usually say this about Donald Trump, but that was over the top.”
