Now that the titans of late-night chattery have reemerged from their Olympics-induced slumber, the presidential candidates can start to use the late night shows as an opportunity to convince you and your brain to show up at the polls in November. Hillary Clinton welcomed Jimmy Kimmel back to his ABC throne on Monday and discussed everything from how one could possibly prepare for a debate with Donald Trump to why she isn't sweating any so-called email scandal.
"I'm here to ask you for your help!" Clinton told Kimmel when he asked how she was prepping for the forthcoming Trump debates. "You have to be prepared for, like, wacky stuff that comes at you. I'm drawing on my experience in elementary school. You know, the guy who pulled your ponytail."
Speaking of confounding Republicans, Clinton also took a moment to thank a number of prominent GOP officials who have come forward to endorse her instead of their party's nominee:
Then, just for the hell of it, Clinton tried to read actual Trump quotes with a straight face. She was pretty successful, but there was one quote in particular that she couldn't bear to read:
Clinton also had to (again!) address that whole email thing and the recently revived conspiracy theories surrounding her health. "Jimmy, my emails are so boring," Clinton said. "And I'm embarrassed about that. They're so boring. So we've already released, I don't know, 30,000 plus. So what's a few more?" Clinton deployed actual sarcasm to mock those health digs:
Thankfully, Kimmel was able to squeeze in enough time to inquire about Bill Clinton's admiration for balloons. This balloon love, of course, was proven to the world during the Democratic National Convention last month:
"We were all pretty excited about the balloons," Clinton said. "That's one of the things that I love about my husband is that he enjoys so many things, and balloons is one of them. He actually took a balloon for our granddaughter." Finally, an outspoken balloon enthusiast!
