Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), President Trump's top choice to replace James Comey as FBI director, joked during a 1999 stand-up set that if Trump ever became president, he would appoint an all-female Cabinet because he is a "ladies man."

Video resurfaced Friday of Lieberman performing the set at a "Funniest Celebrity in D.C." contest. 

“Now here are some early predictions of who will be in [Trump’s] Cabinet,” Lieberman said with a laugh about the real estate mogul.

“Secretary of Energy Carmen Electra, Secretary of Defense Xena the Warrior Princess, Secretary of Housing [New York hotel magnate] Leona Helmsley, Secretary of Education Vanna White, Attorney General Judge Judy,” Lieberman exclaimed.

Morning talk show host Kathie Lee Gifford would be appointed secretary of Commerce, while a former Hollywood madam would run another department: “To show that the Donald is a man with a big heart that gives people a second chance, secretary of Health and Human Services Heidi Fleiss,” Lieberman joked. 

Lieberman went on to jest about the real-life battle between Trump and Pat Buchanan to become the Reform Party’s presidential nominee in the 2000 election.

“Gonna be a big battle in the Reform Party, as we’ve heard all night, between Trump and Buchanan,” Lieberman said. “And if this was old-time politics and not reform politics, they’d put the two of them together on a ticket, of course, the Trump-Buchanan ticket.”

“Think of what would happen if they got elected: They’d probably turn the White House into luxury high-rise co-ops, but it’d be very hard for any Jews to get in,” Lieberman said with a smile.

Buchanan ultimately won the Reform Party nomination.
