Hillary Clinton (Willingly!) Stars in Forrest Gump Parody From 1995: Watch Her Painful Southern Accent Now!

Mama always told me life is like a regional health care alliance? Long before Jimmy Fallon made parody videos or Ellen DeGeneres started inserting herself into great films and music videos, Hillary Clinton was the star of her own spoof, Hillary Gump

The 1995 clip from the Gridiron Club Dinner, resurfaced and started making the rounds this week. It features the former First Lady speaking in an affected southern drawl while sitting in front of a green-screened White House and talking to a stranger.

“Mama always told me the White House is like a box of chocolates. It’s pretty on the outside, but inside there’s lots of nuts,” she joked. 

Clinton went on to make light of several current events at the time, including the controversial interview on Eye to Eye in which host Connie Chung convinced Newt Gingrich’s mother to whisper that he thought Clinton was a “bitch.”

“Hi, my name’s Hillary, Hillary Gump. You can call me Hillary Rodham Gump. That’s what everyone calls me, except on the Connie Chung Show,” Clinton said.
