Remember Hillary Clinton’s brilliant appearance on Broad City last season? We mean, how could you forget! Now Abbie Jacobson is revealing some of the behind-the-scenes info on the cameo, including she never truly thought it would happen in the first place.

She told The Cut,

“Hillary was the only person running at the time — not that we would have ever had another candidate on — but we wrote it not thinking we would ever actually get her on.”

And if you were wondering if it was a political statement or not, let her clarify.

“Afterward, I said in some interview that it wasn’t a political statement, which was a stupid statement to make. Of course it’s a political statement! For us, it felt like we were justifying our show in a different way — it felt historic!”

Abbi also revealed a fun fact about the episode: Amy Poehler was Hil’s stand-in when they rehearsed! Awesome!
