Joel McHale: If Hillary Clinton Becomes President, 'We Could Pay Her 30 Percent Less'

According to Joel McHale, things could work out quite well for the United States if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is elected president in 2016.

McHale joked about the country's gender pay gap during his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday, saying a Clinton presidency could save the country money.

"As our first female president, we could pay her 30% less," he said. "That's savings our country could use!"
