Sure, you know Bill Clinton the former president of the United States, a Rhodes scholar and the husband to the Secretary of State, but did you know that he’s also a brony?

A couple of weeks ago, NewsFeed told you about the “Bronies” craze, as reported by Wired, where grown men became enchanted with the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, creating their own cult-like fan base (bro+ponies=”Bronies”). Well, guess who also seems to be a My Little Pony aficionado?

Calling in to the radio show Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, Clinton was quizzed for a segment called “Not My Job” where the hosts “ask knowledgeable people about things they know nothing about.” Suspecting that Clinton would be out of his comfort zone with My Little Pony trivia, the hosts asked him three multiple-choice questions about the show aimed at little girls. But it seems like they chose the wrong topic, because Clinton killed it, getting all three questions right — including a stumper of question on the Little Pony Rarity’s favorite pastime. (Spoiler alert: It’s giving makeovers!)

So if you’ve been worried that the ex-pres has been having trouble keeping himself occupied since his time in office ended, you can rest easy. Looks like Bill’s a brony now. (via NPR)

Honestly, the options for the answers were pretty obvious. I'm sorry, but this really doesn't qualify him as a brony.

Doesn't surprise me much. He did raise a daughter who was born in 1980 and in 1984 when she was 4 the series started. If Like me with my 5 year old boy he ended up having children's shows on in the background I would not be surprised if he picked up on some of his daughter's favorites. I know I can quote spongebob verbatim.
