Hillary Clinton Jokes About Practicing Beyoncé’s Dance Moves

We believe that she does, because who doesn’t?

Hillary Clinton took her turn to stop by The Breakfast Club today (April 18) to discuss politics — and Beyoncé.

The presidential hopeful reflected on seeing Bey perform at First Lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party back in 2014 and gushed about the legendary singer.

"It was so amazing,” Clinton says during the radio appearance. “We were in the East Room of the White House and they had a stage set up and everything, and she had some of her backup dancers. I sat there and I was just amazed," Clinton said. "Look, I've seen her on TV a million times, but to see her that close and in person [was incredible].

"So, afterwards, I was talking to President Obama and he said, 'Yeah, I saw you over there. Your mouth dropped open,’” Clinton continued. “I said, 'Yeah! It was unbelievable! What an incredible performer.' He goes, 'Yeah, everybody in this audience who had never seen her before were all saying the same thing. I can't believe it. It's like a natural phenomenon."

Clinton then went on to jokingly talk about how she practices Beyoncé’s dance moves when she’s home alone.

"I'm always in trouble when I try to dance in public,” she said, laughing. “Have you noticed that? I have no coordination."

Another highlight of the interview was when Clinton admitted to keeping hot sauce in her bag (but for, you know, health reasons).
