Clinton’s visit on the “Tonight Show” coincided with the Republican debate on CNN. She definitely got the better deal.
Hillary pretty much got a free ride, but no so Trump. As usual, Fallon portrayed him as a blustery, egotistical megalomaniac prone to malapropisms.
“I know you’re about to do your interview with Jimmy Fallon, but he’s a total lightweight,” the faux Trump bellowed. “So, I’m going to do you a favor and interview you instead.”
The Donald’s tough questions, of course, played right to her strengths. “Where are you on womens’ issues?” he said. That gave Hillary a clear opening.
“Donald, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for women’s rights,” Clinton scoffed.
“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?”
With his usual know-it-all-smirk, Trump replied. “I know a lot of women, and they all haves issues.”
Trump wasn’t above taking Hillary under his wing and giving her some political advice.
“You wanna win, here’s what you gotta do. First: Yell. I yell all the time,” he said.
“In fact, this phone isn’t even plugged in. I’m just yelling, and you’re hearing me. Next: Pick three things everyone loves, and say you hate them.”
Fallon had Clinton on the show for a regular sit-down and quizzed her on some substantive issues, including her continuing email brouhaha.
