Murphy Brown Returns To Television With Hillary Clinton As Surprise First Cameo

Murphy Brown, the TV show that brought the issue of single mothers into the national spotlight made its way back on air with a political and polarizing guest.

The 1980’s – 1990 hit television show “Murphy Brown” returned to the airwaves on Thursday and it barely made a ripple as it was against news coverage of one of the most contentious votes in the history of the Senate.

But that did not stop it from being as political as it was during its celebrated 10-year run. The original series reached a level of infamy when then Vice President Dan Quayle tore into the show for featuring a single and pregnant Brown.

“Bearing babies irresponsibly is simply wrong,” Quayle said on May 19, 1992 during a fundraising speech at the at the Commonwealth Club of California. “Failing to support children one has fathered is wrong. We must be unequivocal about this. It doesn’t help matters when prime-time TV has Murphy Brown, a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid professional woman, mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just another lifestyle choice.”

Brown, played by Candace Bergen, fired back on the show by saying “These are difficult times for our country,” she said. “and in searching for the causes of our social ills, we could choose to blame the media or the Congress or an Administration that’s been in power for 12 years, or we could blame me.”

The reboot of the show on Thursday positioned itself to be a political lightning rod again by bringing on the 2016 Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in its first episode.

Clinton appeared as herself, applying for the job to be Brown’s secretary and she spoke, tongue in cheek, about her experience as a “secretary” as she served as Secretary of State for President Obama.

“Your reputation proceeds you, but I want you to know I’m not afraid of hard work, I’m qualified, and I’m ready on day one,” Clinton told the fictional Brown. “For four years I was the secretary … of a very large organization.”

The show went on to take shots at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Steve Bannon signaling that the show will be at the forefront of the Resistance against President Donald Trump.
