Louis C.K. may have just surpassed Michelle Obama as Hillary Clinton's most effective advocate — at least for certain demographics. "Louie, I'm not doing my job if I don't ask you about the election," Conan O'Brien said on Tuesday's Conan, and C.K. was more than game, even though, he said, "it's stupid to say" who he supports "because I'm a performer and I'm splitting my audience in half." Voting for Clinton isn't "a lesser-of-two-evils thing, I think she's great," he said. "I think she's really talented, and I think she's super smart, and I think she's done this — I would take her over anybody."

"To me, it's really exciting to have the first mother in the White House," C.K. said. "It's not about the first woman, it's about the first mom." "What is it about a mom?" Conan asked. "Because a mother, she's got it," C.K. said. "A mother just does it. She feeds you and teaches you, she protects you, she takes care of shit. A father — we've had 240 years of fathers," he said. "And fathers are okay — I'm a father, you're a dad, you're a dad. A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs, tops." Any lousy mother, he added, "like just a not-even-trying mother, 200 percent."
