Who knew softballs could sting so bad?
Jimmy Fallon has been under a lot of heat for his “softball” Donald Trump interview from last week, so during Hillary Clinton’s appearance on “The Tonight Show” Monday, the presidential candidate gave him a special present.
In the segment, Fallon claimed Trump had left Clinton a gift and brought out a bag full of items that mocked the Republican nominee. The late-night host pulled out a heart-shaped picture of Vladimir Putin, a CD of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” and then it was Clinton’s turn.
“He left these for you: softballs,” Clinton said, pulling the softballs out of the bag.
“No, that was my gift to him,” joked Fallon. “I’ll give them to you later in the interview,” he said.
Elsewhere in the Clinton interview, Fallon donned a surgical mask, seemingly poking fun at the overblown coverage of the candidate’s pneumonia.
He also praised Clinton, saying one day his daughters will ask him about when he talked to her.
”The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
