Tonight Show: Jimmy Fallon interviews Hillary Clinton as Donald Trump in sketch

Posted on

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.

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. 

In her responses, the former Secretary of State and First Lady reiterates her stances on political issues and pokes fun at Trump. Clinton also shows some attitude as Fallon-Trump doles out his tips for getting a message across. When he asks if she’s writing it all down, Clinton says, “Hold on, let me grab my pen,” while instead grabbing a glass of wine accompanied by an eye-roll.

Fallon-Trump ends the interview by saying that thanks to him, her poll numbers are now going to be big, to which Clinton responds with the zinger: “Don’t you mean huuuge?”
