Just Not Said was lucky enough to obtain an audience with Hillary Clinton, so we decided to ask about her reaction to the new hit movie.
JNS: Fifty Shades of Grey just set an all time record for Presidents' Day weekend with a box office of $95 million. What do you make of this?
HC: Honestly, I expected to hate this movie. I really did. And I tried to. But once I started watching, well...call me a convert. I now understand why the book is so popular.
JNS. But don't you think you should be showing more solidarity with the sisterhood? By maybe calling for a boycott or something?
HC: Don't be silly. Why would we want to boycott something that makes us feel so good?
JNS: But isn't the underlying message that a woman has to be dependent on a man for money and power and prestige? What does that do to the psyches of young girls?
HC: Who cares? And c'mon, realistically, where would I be if I hadn't married Bill? Do you honestly think they're paying me two hundred grand per speech because I graduated from Wellesley?
JNS: Early reports are that 68% of the viewing audience for the movie are women. Do women really want to be dominated by a man like that?
JNS: That's a little shocking given your previous statements on gender politics.
HC: Puh-leeze. To be a helpless quivering mass while some man explores the depths of your, uh, soul…Let's face it, that's what life is all about.
JNS: But didn't the lack of a coherent plot line and the lame dialogue bother you at all?
HC: You really think I care about that stuff when Jamie Dornan is on the screen? Ohhh my….(HC fans herself with her hand.)
JNS: You have a longstanding reputation for never giving a straight answer, for always sidestepping questions. It's a little surprising you're so direct about this movie.
HC: I'm a changed woman, I really am. I mean, I still intend to run for President and all. But if I win, I plan to convert the Lincoln Bedroom into a private dungeon where Bill and I can act out all of our secret fantasies.
JNS: That brings us to another topic: isn't this movie sort of rape porn?
HC: Yeah, I know it goes against my feminist principles, but I now realize that women were meant to be dominated, and, let's face it, subjugated.
JNS: Well, good luck with your Presidential run.
HC: Thank you. Hey, what other movies has Jamie Dornan appeared in?
