Fake Interview: Bill Clinton

Tell us who you’re wearing?

A blue Hugo Boss suit because I need to make it extra clear that I’m a democrat. Shoes by Gucci, and my cologne is ‘Infidelity’ by Armani.

When will your Vogue cover issue come out?

Turns out Clinton’s email scandal won’t be the stinkiest thing at the DNC.
