Last night on “Conan,” comedian Louis C.K. appeared on the talk show to discuss his feelings on this year’s presidential election. Host Conan O’Brien asked him his feelings on the election and C.K. responded by saying he’s voting for Hillary Clinton, that he believes she’s really talented and super smart. “I’d take her over anyone,” he says. “It’s not between the two of them. I’d take her over anybody else who would do it.” Watch the full segment below.

He goes on to say that he’s excited about the potential of having the first mother in the White House. “A mother just does it. She feeds you and teaches you, she protects you. She takes care of shit. We’ve had 240 years of fathers…A great father can give a kid 40% of his needs tops. Any mother, just a shit mother, just a ‘not even trying’ mother, 200%.”

C.K. warns the audience about a Trump presidency, saying that it’ll be four years of a man who cannot be criticized. “What’s more important about a president then that you can shit all over them?…This guy, every time he’s criticized, everything stops and he makes everybody pay. That’s not how it works. We need somebody who can take abuse.”

“I don’t want somebody likable or cool anymore,” he continues. “We need a two-faced, conniving, crazy [person], somebody who’s just got a million schemes…But we just need a tough bitch mother who nobody likes and who just does shit.”

Summing up his feelings on the election overall, C.K. says, “If you vote for Hillary, you’re a grown-up. If you vote for Trump, you’re a sucker. If you don’t vote for anybody, you’re an asshole.”
