Hillary Clinton Tells Colbert ‘I Never Had To Steal A Treaty’ Off Obama’s Desk

The former secretary of state discussed some serious topics on Stephen Colbert's show Friday.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has worn many hats over the course of her storied career, but one job she never had was babysitting a president.

Clinton appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Friday and weighed in on many issues facing the country, from the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to a president potentially being subpoenaed or even indicted

She also discussed why she thinks our democracy is in crisis, explaining the dramatic shift in philosophy and attitude from President Barack Obama’s tenure to that of President Donald Trump.

“So you never had to steal a treaty off [Obama’s] desk,” Colbert joked. He was referring to journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, in which Woodward says staffers repeatedly removed documents from Trump’s desk, fearing the consequences of his impulsive decisions.

“I never had to steal a treaty off his desk, no,” Clinton replied.
