It turns out, Hillary Clinton can read Donald Trump quotes while keeping a straight face. “That’s not funny,” the Democratic nominee said on Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live after repeating one of Trump’s taunts against Rosie O’Donnell.

While a guest on the late-night show, host Jimmy Kimmel had Clinton pull Trump quotes out of a wig-covered bowl and attempt to read each without laughing.

“I think apologizing is a great thing, but you have to be wrong,” Clinton read words spoken by her GOP opponent. “I will absolutely apologize, some time in the hopefully distant future, if I’m ever wrong.” She called the quote “profound,” but didn’t crack up.

In another quote, Clinton recited Trump’s claims that he has “great respect for women” and “really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women, more than anyone, in the construction industry.”

“Some of his places have glass ceilings,” Clinton joked.

It was on the third quote, however, that Clinton had enough. “If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat ugly face of hers and say, Rosie, you’re fired.”

As the crowd jeered, Clinton said, “That’s not funny.”

She refrained from reading the last quote, leaving Kimmel to do so. “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

“We didn’t make these up, these are real quotes,” Kimmel said.
