When comedian Tim Allen met former President Bill Clinton, he realized pretty quickly that he was taking second billing on that occasion to a woman — his own wife.
Allen recalled the incident Thursday night while chatting with Megyn Kelly on Fox News’s The Kelly File.
“He was eyeballing my wife the entire time we were talking,” Allen said.
“He really was!” Allen added during Kelly’s brief giggling fit. “My wife’s gorgeous. He kept looking at me, but he was like, ‘How you doing? Nice talking to you, love your show.’”
Allen said he still managed to enjoy the encounter with the former president. He said he admired Clinton’s quick intellect.
“He’s a nice guy,” Allen said. “He did a 40-minute, off-the-cuff speech about the environment or something. He’s brilliant on stuff like that.”
Allen had few positive things to say about Hillary Clinton, saying that after the recent campaign stunt where she barked like a dog, she does not have the talent for comedy.
“But whether or not the Clintons love each other in the way of most happily married couples, there is no doubt about their commitment to the pursuit of political power,” Smith wrote. “In some ways, they remain an unlikely couple; the earnest Methodist overachiever who freely acknowledges ‘I don’t do spontaneity’ and the instinctively affable and loquacious charmer who makes everything look easy.”
“Hillary considers Bill a ‘force of nature,’” Smith wrote. “Yet nearly everything about him is contradicted by something else. His wide-ranging intellect can be overridden by lapses in everyday common sense. He is by turns empathetic and self-absorbed, focused and undisciplined, cerebral and priapic, idealistic and cynical, honest and evasive, inspiring and mortifying.”
