OMG! Is nothing off limits? Mindy Kaling‘s “In Conversation” event with pal Tina Fey at the 92nd Street Y on Wednesday, Sept. 16, was always going to result in a few envelope-pushing moments of hilarity — but nobody in the audience was quite ready for this!
The Mindy Kaling Project star, who was promoting her new book Why Not Me? during the Wednesday evening onstage interview at New York’s Kaufmann Concert Hall, took her conversation to an entirely new level when she was asked for her thoughts on Donald Trump.
“His terms and phrases are amazing,” Kaling admitted, after making it clear she disagreed with pretty much everything he says. “I love that he’s like, ‘You’re a loser!'” she added. But then things got really wild!
Would she “make out with Trump?” Fey asked her pal, unexpectedly.
Quick as a wink, she knew the answer. “Yeah, like for a couple hours? Sure!”
And it didn’t stop there. Fey escalated her line of inquiry to include a quick game of “Would You Rather…” And Kaling’s options were Trump or disgraced comedian Bill Cosby.
A quick facepalm, and the comedienne had an answer: “With Bill Cosby you could sleep through it,” she said, to a deep intake of breaths!
The audience had barely recovered from their gasps when Fey continued her college drinking game theme, daring Kaling to partake in a “Marry, F–K, Kill” moment. This time her options were newly single Michael Fassbender, Stephen Colbert, and Kaling’s best pal B.J. Novak.
Her decision? Michael Fassbender gets assassinated, Stephen Colbert becomes her spouse, and B.J. Novak is the lucky recipient of some Kaling loving. “I would have sex with B.J.” she said, frankly, before adding cheekily, “I’ve done that!”
