WATCH: Jimmy Fallon Loses Composure After Cracking EPIC Hillary Joke
Speculation on Hillary Clinton’s health has gone from being the stuff of so-called conspiracy theorists to fodder for late night jokes on television. And none of the late night talk show hosts were laughing harder than Jimmy Fallon.
In fact, he managed to crack himself up while doing the joke itself.
“Hillary Clinton is featured in the upcoming issue of Women’s Health Magazine,” Fallon told his studio audience on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last week. That’s when the laughs started coming out of his own mouth and he couldn’t stop them.
After regaining control of himself, Fallon eventually said, “… while next month, she’ll be featured in Bad Timing Magazine.”
Fallon’s joke, of course, is bound to go over poorly in Hillary Clinton’s headquarters. But why should they be upset? After all, they’ve done this to themselves.
Hillary Clinton has been painfully secretive about her health, going so far as to reportedly divert the van that was taking her to the emergency room of a hospital to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment after her unfortunate collapse at the 9/11 ceremony.
First, Hillary aides said she’d overheated at the ceremony. Then, they said that it was pneumonia and that it had been diagnosed the Friday previous. But if that was true, why didn’t they tell us?
If this is a woman who’s so secretive about her health, how can we trust her to be honest about other things? How can we trust her to let us know what we need to know?
There’s no transparency, there’s just a campaign that insists that it’s transparent while being maddeningly opaque. That’s why Hillary Clinton’s health is on front pages everywhere. If they’d just have been upfront with the American people, this wouldn’t have happened.
Now, Hillary Clinton’s health statements are considered jokes, and even Jimmy Fallon can’t stop himself from laughing at it.
