Fox News reported that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton were recently seen in a viral video clip singing along to Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 disco hit “I Will Survive.”
According to Fox News, that footage was taken from the season five premiere episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, which airs Friday on Apple TV+.

In addition to Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, the video also featured actress Vanessa Williams as well as comedian Amber Ruffin. However, not everyone was impressed by their performance.

Fox News noted that conservative journalist and YouTube personality Millie Weaver wondered whether the driving scene had actually been shot in a studio, asking, “Is this green screened? Why do I keep seeing the same cars going by out of the window?”
Dr. Taylor is a Catholic commentator, and he called on his Twitter followers to pray for whoever had to edit the footage.
Somebody had to professionally edit this👇🏻. Let’s have a moment of silence and pray for that poor person: https://t.co/UVNzI3dPEM

Meanwhile, Turning Point USA speaker joked that “I Will Survive” was only selected because singing along to the 1974 rock song “Killer Queen” would have cost too much in royalty fees.

Clinton denies that she is angling for another presidential run
Hillary Clinton’s vocal abilities aren’t the only reason why her name has come up over the past year, as some political observers have speculated that she may be eyeing the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2024.
Fox News reported that for her part, Clinton dismissed such suggestions during an interview in September with CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell.
“No, no,” the former secretary of state was quoted as saying when O’Donnell asked if Clinton had any intention of making a third White House run.
“But I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions,” Clinton added.
