5 Hill-arious Moments

from Hillary’s Tonight Show Appearance

Hillary sat down for her first late-night talk show appearance of the campaign — first with Jimmy Fallon as “Donald Trump” and then with Jimmy Fallon as himself. These were our favorite moments:


1. When “Donald Trump” offered his best campaign advice.

“Donald”: “Pick three things everyone loves and say you hate them. Watch. Puppies? Stupid. Rainbows? Total losers…”

2. When it was all just too much.

“Donald”: “Are you writing all this down?”
Hillary: “Hold on. Let me grab my pen…”

3. When they danced it out.

4. When Jimmy sized Hillary up.

Jimmy: “I think you’re very very very tough. But you’re a mother and I know you as a grandmother, as well… But you’re a tough mother.”
Hillary: “A tough mother?”
Jimmy: “No, no, no, I meant that in a good way!”

5. The hair check.
