Hillary Clinton Jabs at Trump During First Late-Night Show Appearance.

Hillary Clinton stopped by NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Wednesday night, and as he is wont to do, Fallon did his best Donald Trump impression for part of Clinton’s visit. “I know you’re about to do your interview with Jimmy Fallon,” Fallon said as Trump. “But he’s a total lightweight.Hillary Clinton’s first late night TV appearance of the cycle started with – what else – an extended Donald Trump joke and a glass of white wine.Hillary Clinton’s appearance on The Tonight Show fell on the same night as the second GOP debate, so it was only appropriate to get Donald Trump involved somehow.Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon walked onstage as Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for the second time in a week on Wednesday, this time to interview yet another frontrunner—Hillary Clinton.

I’m going to do you a favor and interview you instead.” “Donald, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for women’s rights,” Clinton said. “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. In what has become a trademark impression, Fallon donned the Donald’s hairdo and “called” Clinton at home to discuss women, immigration and Bernie Sanders.

As the former secretary of state pushes to show more of her humor and humanity on the campaign trail, she sat for a mock interview Wednesday with Trump. In the pre-interview sketch, Jimmy Fallon reprises his role as Trump, offering to interview Clinton since Fallon is “a total lightweight.” Fallon-Trump, already well-versed in interviewing, asks Clinton about what she’ll do for women in the country, how she plans to communicate with the American people, and how big of a wall the government should build to keep immigrants out. Fallon-dressed-as-Trump interviewed The Donald himself last week and did something similar with Clinton, ringing her up from a fake phone while she sat just a few feet away on the set. What’s your stance on women’s issues?” Fallon even managed to work in a toupee joke, in addition to lampooning Trump’s campaign tactics, which were also on display at the GOP debate earlier that evening. “You wanna win, here’s what you gotta do. Talk quickly turned to immigration. “Do you have any idea what it’s like to work so hard for something, to be so close to getting it, but then have someone pop out of nowhere and tries to take it all away,” Clinton pointedly asked.

He told Clinton to yell more if she wanted her poll numbers to climb, and to pick three things everyone loves—puppies, rainbows, fall foliage—and say you hate them. Clinton’s not exactly known for coming off as spontaneous, fun, or really any adjective that would make you want to be friends with her, but she appeared fairly natural on Wednesday. After discussing her passion for women’s rights, Clinton asked about his stance on women’s issues. “I know a lot of women, and they all have issues,” said Fallon. She laughed when Fallon was funny, delivered her lines like she’d had more than enough practice, and said Trump’s hair looks like a soft serve ice cream swirl. When the faux Trump offered to interview her in place of Fallon, whom he called a “total lightweight,” she made a reference to her limited press availability. “You know how much I love being interviewed as long as you don’t start talking over me while I’m trying to make a point,” said Clinton before she was interrupted.

She called Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West “delightful” when she was asked about a recent selfie she took with the power couple. “I really enjoyed meeting with them and talking with them,” she added. At another point in the show, Clinton invited Fallon to touch her hair after he admitted he hadn’t been able to do so with Trump when he appeared on the show Sept. 11. I’m having a good time watching it.” She also made a joke about the White House someday becoming the Trump House if he became the Commander-in-Chief, and candidate Dr. Fallon praised Clinton, at one point calling her “tough mother” and then, when acknowledging his poor delivery, “you’re like if Ronda Rousey shopped at Ann Taylor Loft.” However, he didn’t shy away from asking Clinton about the controversies in her own campaign thus far, particularly her use of teleprompters and comments that she has been too scripted. “I could go more stream of consciousness,” she replied, launching into a thinly veiled (and very loud) impression of Trump.
