Hillary Clinton stopped by NBC's 'Tonight Show' on Wednesday where she was interviewed by Jimmy Fallon twice - once as an over-the-top Donald Trump, and once as himself.

Fallon and Clinton’s skit played out a friendly phone conversation between the two presidential candidates where Fallon's Trump, gave Clinton some advice.

“I know you’re about to do your interview with Jimmy Fallon,” Fallon said as Trump. “But he’s a total lightweight. I’m going to do you a favor and interview you instead.”

Fallon, wearing a dark suit and Trump-like toupee, told Clinton they haven’t seen each other since his “last wedding.”

“Well, I’m sure I’ll see you at the next one,” the former US Secretary of State replied, much to the audience's amusement.

 

Clinton used the skit to draw attention to the differences between herself and Trump, highlighting that she has spent her entire career fighting for women's rights.

“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?” asked Clinton.

“I know a lot of women and they all haves issues,” Fallon/Trump said.

Later in the show when Fallon interviewed Clinton as himself, the subject of Trump came up again when the former First Lady invited the talkshow host to touch her hair.

“Have you ever really touched it?” Clinton asked, referring to Trump’s famous hair.

Fallon admitted he hadn’t.

“You want to touch mine?” Clinton said as she leaned over.

A giggling Fallon petted the former First Lady’s head. “It’s real, it’s real,” Fallon gushed. “It’s fantastic, you guys, and it smells great.”
