Comedian Tim Allen on Thursday night discussed a past encounter with Bill Clinton, joking that the former president seemed more interested to be meeting his spouse.

“He was eyeballing my wife the entire time we were talking,” Allen told host Megyn Kelly on Fox News’s “The Kelly File.”

Allen said that he enjoyed that encounter overall, adding that he admires the former chief executive’s quick intellect.

“He’s a nice guy,” he said of the nation’s 42nd president. “He did a 40-minute, off-the-cusp speech on about the environment or something. He’s brilliant on stuff like that.”

Allen said Hillary Clinton, Bill’s wife, lacks the talent to be a comedian herself, responding with a long silence when Kelly asked if he was a fan of the Democratic presidential front-runner.

“Did she actually bark like a dog?” Allen eventually asked, referencing Clinton’s taunt of the GOP last Tuesday. “Did I really see that? She doesn’t have a skill set for jokes.”

Allen additionally derided GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s border security policies, noting he prefers John Kasich instead.

“Come on, Donald,” he said. “You can’t build a wall and go to 30 million people and knock on their door and make them go away. You can’t do that stupid stuff.

“That’s why I go back to Kasich. He really has a great résumé and the guy’s got a good heart. I know this might be the kiss of death for him, but he’s almost a Republican Democrats would like.”
