Hillary Clinton appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night, and did not hold back from having a good time!

The 2016 candidate appeared to be more than game for a laugh with host Jimmy Fallon as the pair engaged in a skit, and later in the interview, Clinton even attempted an impersonation of GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

“I am thrilled to be here! And this is my debut on your program!” gushed Clinton, before chatting about taking selfies with Kim Kardashian West, her much-discussed email controversy and being “tough enough” to be President.

But first, Fallon couldn’t resist coaxing Clinton into a playful skit that saw her being interviewed by Trump prior to her appearance on the show. Fallon, as Trump, pretended to call Clinton, saying “I haven’t seen you since my last wedding,” to which Clinton responded, “I am sure I will see you at the next one.”

Clearly enjoying Fallon’s digs at Trump [on the subject of women’s issues, he says, ‘I know a lot of women, and they all have issues,’] at one point she pretended to grab a pen to take notes but instead went for a large glass of white wine and took a swig.

Clinton really went in for the kill on the subject of Trump’s hair, joking in response to Fallon saying Bernie Sanders could possibly go bald: “Well, at least he doesn’t have just one strand that he twirls over his head like a soft serve at Dairy Queen.” Amazingly, Fallon managed to top that zinger, quipping: “Toupee I mean, touché.”

Following the skit, Clinton admitted that she has been entertained by watching Trump run. “He’s making the most out of it and I’m having a good time watching it,” she laughed.

She also attempted an impersonation of Trump himself, when Fallon brought up that he had criticized her for using a teleprompter. “I could go more stream of consciousness of course,” she said, before doing her best Trump-like voice, to Fallon’s delight.

When asked if she thinks she’s tough enough to be the next President, she made the audience cheer by replying instantly, “Yes, I think so.”

On the subject of her emails, Clinton continued her party line of taking responsibility but added, “It was retroactive. It wasn’t [classified] at the time, the stuff that is in there is very boring.”

Speaking about Kardashian West, Clinton’s eyes lit up as she shared: “I have to say, she and her husband, Kanye, came to one of my fundraisers in L.A. – they were just delightful. She’s a pro at the selfie thing.”

As well as laughing out loud when Fallon described her as a “tough mother” Clinton showed her soft, maternal side as she revealed that she’d once given Fallon advice on raising his children.

She recalled: “I said whatever you do, read to your baby. Talk and sing but especially read to your baby. It is real advice. You know, because you’ve done it. It really does make a difference. Read, read, read, you did it, and I hope everybody who watches this show does it.
