Hamptons fan Hillary Clinton appeared on The Colbert Report Tuesday to have a name-dropping contest with host Stephen Colbert and to promote her new memoir Hard Choices.
Colbert called the New York Times bestseller “656 pages of shameless name-dropping” and went on with more criticism until Clinton, who is staying in Amagansett this month with husband President Bill Clinton, appears in Colbert’s studio.
Watch the segment here:
Colbert, who is feuding with online retailer Amazon, is encouraging those interested in purchasing Clinton’s new book to purchase it from an independent bookstore. Clinton is scheduled to sign her book at BookHampton in East Hampton on August 16 at 5 p.m.; only those who purchased the book from BookHampton ahead of time may attend the signing.
Clinton also has a signing planned at Book Revue in Huntington at 6 p.m. Wednesday and at Bunch of Grapes on Martha’s Vineyard on August 13 at 4 p.m.
