Comedian Louis C.K. guested on "Conan" on Tuesday. Asked by host Conan O'Brien to weigh in on the election, C.K. said frankly, "I'm gonna vote for Hillary [Clinton]."

"I think she's great," C.K. said. "It's not like a lesser of two evils — I think she's great. I really like her. I think she's talented and I think she's super smart. ... I would take her over anybody."

C.K. explained the basis for electing the Democratic presidential nominee — a mother of one — instead of her Republican rival, Donald Trump — a father of five.

"To me, it's very exciting to have the first mother in the White House. It's not about the first woman, it's about the first mom," he said. "Because a mother, she's got it. A mother just does it. ... She feeds you, she teaches you, she protects you. She takes care of shit."

"We've had 240 years of fathers ... bald father, fat father, every kind of father. ... A great father can give a kid 40 percent of his needs, top. Tops out at 40 percent," he added. "Any mother — like just a shit mother, like just a not-even-trying mother — 200 percent."

Despite his own convictions, C.K. said he has no qualms with someone who chooses to vote Trump. To undecided voters and conscientious objectors, however, he had stronger words: "If you're a liberal who's not gonna vote, you're a piece of shit."

"I don't want somebody who's likable or cool anymore," he explained. "We need a two-faced, conniving, crazy — just somebody who's got like a million schemes."
