Those tired of the lengthy GOP debate got some comic relief Wednesday night when Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visited “The Tonight Show.”
A heated debate with Donald Trump might be in her future, but for the time being it was Jimmy Fallon dressed as the Republican frontrunner who confronted Clinton in a politically themed skit.
After bragging about how great he was earlier in the evening at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, Fallon’s fake Trump told her: “I know you’re about to do your interview with Jimmy Fallon. But he’s a total lightweight. I’m going to do you a favor and interview you instead.”
Clinton at least got a sounding board to point out the differences between herself and Trump when it comes to women’s rights, saying, “Donald, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for women’s rights.
“I’ll push for equal pay in the workplace, I’ll protect women’s health and reproductive rights, and I’ll make quality, affordable childcare a reality for families. I’m curious. What’s your stance on women’s issues?”
“I know a lot of women and they all haves issues,” he replied, later telling her she sounds like a robot.
Along with advising Clinton to “yell all the time,” Fallon-as-Trump also told her to “pick three things everyone loves and say you hate them … puppies — stupid, rainbows — total losers, fall foliage — tree puberty.”
Like many viewers during the GOP debate that aired earlier on CNN, Clinton needed a glass of wine to be able to endure Trump’s ramblings.
“Wall or giant wall?” he went on to ask her, touching on the hot immigration debate and his planned barrier along America’s southern border.
Clinton got her own back by slipping in a dig at Trump’s toupee, suggesting he just has one strand of hair that he twirls over his head like a “soft serve at Dairy Queen.”
“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
