Hillary Clinton learns 'Whip/Nae Nae' on 'Ellen,' Bill critiques performance

When Hillary Clinton visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday, the Democratic presidential candidate addressed a cultural phenomenon of great significance: the "Whip/Nae Nae" dance.

The former secretary of state good-naturedly joined the talk-show host in showing off some moves to rapper Silentó’s bouncy summer hit, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)."

While DeGeneres seemed to approve of Clinton's performance, some were more critical — namely, former President Bill Clinton, who took to Twitter to comment that his wife "looks good w her Whip skills, but needs work w her NaeNae."

During her appearance, Clinton also made a new friend: 5-year-old presidential expert Macey Hensley, who sported a child-sized version of the former first lady's royal blue pantsuit.

Of course, Macey isn't Clinton's only tiny fan; she also opened up about granddaughter Charlotte, who turns 1 later this month.

While Charlotte unsurprisingly "doesn't have that many words yet," Clinton and DeGeneres discussed what the baby girl will eventually call her grandmother.

"Well, you know I’m fine with 'Grandma,' I’m fine with 'Madame President' — I mean, whatever," Clinton quipped.

And finally, Clinton weighed in on Kanye West's recent announcement that the rapper is considering a presidential run.

“I heard him make the announcement, and he said he wanted to run in 2020,” she said. “I would only ask him, if I’m running for reelection, to wait.”
