Hillary Clinton will appear in Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” on Wednesday, September 16, at 11:35 p.m., according to an NBC press release.
Clinton is showing up in the show for the first ever time and it is worth noting that this is the first time the former First Lady and secretary of state will appear on television late at night after her presidential candidacy announcement this April, according to Business Insider.
Clinton is one of the few other major politicians to make late night appearances in the shows. The list include Donald Trump who will be seen in Fallon’s show on September 11. Joe Biden, potential Democratic presidential candidate, will also talk with Stephen Colbert in CBS on September 10.
Meanwhile, Clinton will also be seen in “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, reports New York Times.
Clinton choosing to appear in Fallon’s show is logical, says Newsday. Taking part in the show is much like a cakewalk for Clinton since Fallon would be “lobbing the softest of softballs” loaded with jokes. There wouldn’t be anything uncomfortable for Clinton in the show and she will not encounter difficulty in answering any of the questions. She has also been interviewed by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell which was aired in “NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt” last week.
Fallon’s “Tonight Show” had very few politicians by far for over a year, notably Jeb Bush and Chris Christie. The new list of major political figures scheduled to appear in the show is likely to boost Fallon’s show big time.
