actress and comedianGrace Helbig.

And for everyone at home,join our conversation right now

Okay. All right, so, it seems,uh, now that Hillary

all has but won the nomination,and her camp is...

so they're floating outsome names

for her choicesof vice president, right?

And among them were,uh, some women,

which is kind of interesting.

So, my question iscould this happen in...

Is America ready for two womenon the same ticket?

-(cheering, applause)-Larry, here's what I think.

I think this:I think we have to stop

asking for permission.

-We have to tell America thatthey're ready for it. -Yeah.

Just like... Beyoncédidn't ask our permission

to release Lemonade this weekend, she just did it

and she blew our brains out.

And she would bean amazing vice president.

-Mm-hmm.-Beyoncé? -Beyoncé.

I mean...

-She would bean amazing president. -Yeah.

-There you go.-I'd drink lemonade every day.

I... We keep askingif America is ready.

Is Hillary ready for a womanto run with her?

That's the question, 'cause shedon't strike me as the type

that like to share, so...

Really?Well, I mean, it's ver...

Yeah, I think she wantsto make history on her own.

I don't think Hillary wantsto have another woman there

taking some of that shine.She's been working for this

-for a long time.-I mean, Monica Lewinsky

was kind of theretaking some of the shine.

-She took something else,not shine. -HELBIG: Yikes!

You don't...you don't think she's down

-for two girls, one ticket?-I don't think...

-Sorry, I apologize. Yes, Iapologize. -I don't think so.

PARRA:I would watch that, by the way.

You would watch that.Oh, my God.

-I think I've already seen that.-Yeah.

Well, some people sayElizabeth Warren

-would be a good choice.-Yeah. -(cheering, applause)

PARRA: Oh, she'd be amazing.-She'd be great.

I don't... I don't thinkthat's a good choice

for either one of them.First of all,

'cause Elizabeth Warrenis not gonna let

being vice presidentsilence her.

If she accepts that,she's silenced.

-What can she say? -No, I disa--I disagree with that. -No.

She cannot go against herpresident. She's vice president.

-Maybe she... She may nothave to. She may influence

-rather than be... -And thenshe would have too much power

in Hillary's Democratic party,because people would be voting

for the ticket because of Warrenand not because of Hillary,

-and I don't think Hillarycan take that. -Doesn't matter.

-All you got to do is get in theoffice, though. -Well, exactly,

and then Elizabethis silenced after that.

As long as Elizabeth Warrenhas Wi-Fi,

she's not gonna be silent.

-Like, her Twitter is great.-She's on fire on Twitter?

-Yeah, she's amazing.-You follow her?

Oh, yeah, she's got anincredible,

incredible Twitter feed.

And she understands, like,the use of 140 characters.

-Yeah? Super size it.-Yeah, which is really...

-Yeah, it's amazing.-Yeah. Does vice president

make a differencein your vote for president?

No, just like nobody listenedto Destiny's Child for Michelle.

-(Helbig gasps) -I'm sorry,it's true. We... did you?

I just feel bad 'cause she hadto wear shorts all the time.

She did have to wear shorts!

-Beyoncé got to wear thedresses. -Kelly got the midriff

-and Michelle got the shorts.-Yeah. -Yeah.

If the reason you're votingfor somebody for president...

the-the fact that you liketheir vice president,

-then you probably shouldn'tvote for that person. -Mm-hmm.

You know?You wouldn't date somebody

'cause their best friendis cool as (bleep). No.

-Huh? I don't know. -Yeah.I agree, I agree. - Right?

-I've heard of that.-I'm like, "I can't stand her,

but her friend is the (bleep)."

It's-it's not one of the worstreasons to date someone.

-You know?-I'm just sayin', you know?

"So-so,tell me why you like me."

"Well, it's kind ofabout your friend."

'Cause of this (bleep)."

Do you think having someonelike Warren can unite the party?

'Cause it feelsa little fractured right thou...

-right now. -It does feela little... I actually think,

no matter what,the party's gonna unite again.

-You think so? It's not gonna bea problem? -I really do.

-I don't think so. I mean, withTrump? Like, come on. -Yeah.

-No one's... I-I'm sure thereare a few people who... -Yeah.

If there's anybody out therewho's gonna vote for Trump

-instead of... -But you knowwhat's interesting though...

But Trump and Hillary both have,like, the highest unfavorables

-for any leading candidates,you know? -They do, yeah.

Do you... Who do you thinka woman on the ticket

would help the most,Trump or Hillary?

-Well, since Hillary'sa woman already, -Mm-hmm.

uh... Unless we're sayingwe don't believe her.

But we're saying twoon the ticket.

Yeah, I don't knowhow that helps her.

-I don't know how that helps.I think... -Right.

-But would it help Trump?-It helps Trump. I... -Listen...

-Go ahead. -No, I hate admittingthat it helps Trump, but it's...

-You do? -I do. That-thatit helps Trump, because

-it's sort of like... -Youthink that's gonna help him,

-you admitting it?-A li... I think... Yeah,

me-me, yes. I-It's sort of likeif you see a, um...

-a murderer holding a baby,-Oh, God.

It's still a murdererat the end of the day.

Yes, that's true.

-That's how I feel about Trump.-That's a good point.

-Yeah.-Well...

C-Can you imagine Trump,uh, choosing a woman?

-Holding a baby? Never. No.-Yeah, holding a baby. No.

-Have we ever seen him holda baby? -I can't imagine.

Well, it would be confusing'cause his hands and the baby's

-just match.It'd be so confusing. -Yeah.

-They'd be doing this.-The baby would slip

-through his baby hands,unfortunately. -(laughs)

So, Madeleine Albright saidthere's a special place in hell

for women who don't votefor Hillary.

Now, if there are two womenon the ticket,

what place in hell is that?

Do-do you think womenwould have a lot of pressure

-to do that though? With twowomen on the ticket. -I mean...

Do... Uh, do women feel pressureto vote for...

-If there were two womenon the ticket. -(exhales)

I mean, I don't know. I-I alwayshave such a weird association

when it's, like,leading with the idea of women,

-rather than, like, just peopleon the ticket. -Yeah.

-Because it's... -Yeah.Yeah, yeah, yeah. -(applause)

No, no, no. No, you guysare clapping, but if a woman's

not president,you'll be like, "(bleep)!

How can we do it?" You know?There's something to the first,

-though, you know. -Yeah, it'sinteresting. But there's been

two men on ticketsfor years and years and years

-and years and years and yearsand more years. -Exactly. Right.

There's been a precedenceof, uh, adding a vice president

-that's your same genderfor the entire history. -Yeah.

-That's kind of how they do it.Yeah. -America. Yeah.

What if we just adda vice, vice president,

-so it's three peopleon a ticket? -Three people?

Yeah. I'm just throwing... Thisis just a brainstorming session,

-you guys. -I say put...I say put-put women

in charge of all of it.Let's see what happens,

-you know what I mean?-Yeah. Hasn't been done before.

It hasn't been done.Men been (bleep) it up forever,

-so let women take overand see what happens. -Yes.

-(cheering and applause)-Sounds good!

Sounds good.We'll be right back.

-Sounds good.-(cheers and applause)
