Hillary Clinton had a field day mocking GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump for all the crazy things he’s said during the campaign and also discussed the latest GOP line of attack on her health. And, yes she can open a pickle jar.

Clinton was composed, jovial and relaxed as Kimmel asked her about the latest claims about her health.

When Kimmel brought it up, she told him to check her pulse. “Oh my god, there’s nothing there,” he joked.

“Back in October The National Enquirer said I would be dead in six months. So with every breath I take I feel like I have a new lease on life,” she said.

She said questions raised about her health is just part of Trump’s “wacky” strategy to raise as many questions as they can hoping something will stick.

As the ultimate test, Jimmy presented her with a jar of pickles and asked her to open it. With a “grrr,” she popped off the lid to cheers.

“It’s not been touched,” Jimmy assured.

I do feel sometimes that this campaign has entered into an alternative universe,” Clinton pointed out.

Clinton said she’s on the campaign trail talking about issues like creating good jobs, helping young people pay off their student debt, health care and prescriptions.

“I’m out here talking about all this, then I have to step into the alternative reality. You know, answer questions about am I alive, how much longer will I be alive,” she said.

Clinton will meet Trump in a series of face-to-face debates in the fall. Jimmy wondered how she plans to prepare for the them.

“I’m here to ask for your help!” she exclaimed. “You’ve got to be prepared for wacky stuff that come at you. I’m planning on drawing off my experiences from elementary school.”
