It shouldn’t be shocking that the song, in particular, is “Respect,” a complete and utter anthem fitting of the trio performing it. As the Clinton women and Ruffin sing at the top of their lungs, they can’t help but let a laugh or two out leading Hillary to speak up. “The money part I’d forgotten. I always remembered the respect part, and I guess what she’s basically telling us is, do whatever it takes to get rid of him,” she says, referencing Franklin’s lyrics.

As they chat some more, Hillary adds, “I loved her,” of Franklin. “I just find everything about her to be so bigger than life and amazing.”
