Fallon, Clinton Implore People To Back Biden: ‘Get Out There And Vote’

News & Politics

NBC’s Jimmy Fallon welcomed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Monday’s edition of The Tonight Show to not only promote her new Broadway play about the women’s suffrage movement but also give those watching who may not be fans of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden a pep talk on the need to fall in line behind the latter.

Fallon asked, “I mean, it’s Biden versus Trump. We know that. What do you say to voters who are upset that those are the two choices?”

Showing all the lack of ability to connect with voters that she did in 2016, Clinton told such voters to “Get over yourself, those are the two choices.”

Fallon agreed, because even the least partisan of the four broadcast network late night talk show hosts is willing to turn his show into The DNC Show on occasion, “Yeah, love that. Yeah, good.”

Clinton continued, “And, you know, it’s kind of like one is old and effective and compassionate has a heart, and really cares about people. And one is old and has been charged with 91 felonies… I don’t understand why this is even a hard choice, really.”

Three of those were recently dismissed, but details aside, Clinton kept rolling, “I don’t understand it, but we have to go through the election, and hopefully people will realize what’s at stake, because it’s an existential question. What kind of country we’re going to have, what kind of democracy we’re going to have, and people who blow that off are not paying attention because, it’s not like Trump, his enablers, his empowerers, his allies, are not telling us what they want to do. I mean, they’re pretty clear about what kind of country they want.”

Thinking the whole discussion was an appropriate segue to discuss the play, Fallon urged people to “get out there and vote which is a good—”

Clinton cut him off to echo his sentiment, “Get out there and vote. Well, that’s what this is really about. Get out there and vote.” She likewise then transitioned to talk about the play and the history surrounding it. 

Here is a transcript for the April 1 show:
