Though she won’t be the oldest person to take the highest office in the land, if elected Hillary Clinton might become the second oldest. (The first was Ronald Reagan at age 69.)

Recently, members of the Republican party a.k.a. “Healthers” have been targetting 68-year-old Clinton’s well-being by questioning her “brain injuries” using conspiracy theories as evidence.

But on Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Democratic presidential nominee put the rumors to rest by proving she’s in deed in good health to serve as the future POTUS.

Clinton jokingly asked the late night host to take her pulse while she answered his question about the rumors around her health. “This has become one of their themes, take my pulse while I’m talking to you,” she said to Kimmel, adding, “Make sure I’m not dead. With every breath I take I have a new lease on life.”

To further prove her strength, Kimmel surprised the grandmother of two with a dare to open a sealed jar of pickles.

“It absolutely makes no sense, I don’t go around questioning Donald Trump’s health,” she concluded.
“I’m out here talking about [the issues] and I also answer questions if I’m alive.”

On Friday, the former Secretary of State wished her husband Bill Clinton a happy 70th birthday with a special message on social media.
