Kal Penn‘s political comedy series on Freeform doesn’t hold back. Not even when the recent guest is former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Penn, who worked at the White House during the Obama Administration is funny but his questions aren’t always easy. Clinton got that on this Tuesday’s episode.

The new show, Kal Penn Approves This Message, comes from his perspective as a political strategist and former White House staffer, It is a six-episode series, that premiered Tuesday on Freeform and is touted as being non-partisan.

During the latest episode Penn says to Clinton, “when I had the chance to book you, it reminds me of several conversations I had with my friends, right, I think Secretary Clinton has agreed to join us for our show, there was a lot of pushback from Democratic friends, I know you know it’s there she might be too polarizing, do you really want a polarizing guest on an episode of this new show…”

“I was going to ask you, how that makes you feel it’s sort of like how Kumail Nanjiani, getting all the acting jobs now that he’s really ripped…is that frustrating or is it exhausting?”

Hillary taken a bit back by the question, responded “Now, why am I polarizing? Well, I’m a really pushy woman when you come to think about it.”

As stated in news reports Penn’s show explores “issues relevant to Millennial and Gen Z voters — including education, health care, and climate change — in an attempt to boost turnout this November.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
