Hillary Clinton Addresses ‘Wacky’ Rumors and Proves She’s Healthy on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Amid accusations from Donald Trump’s camp and conservative media outlets that she is in poor health, Hillary Clinton addressed the rumors of her frailty on Monday night from a platform as silly as her competitor’s claims, Jimmy Kimmel Live! “Back in October, the National Enquirer said I would be dead in six months. So with every breath I take I feel like it’s a vacation,” Clinton quipped to the late-night host. Kimmel brought up Rudy Giuliani’s repeated comments about Clinton possible illness, which stems from an earlier incident in 2012 when the presidential candidate fainted due to dehydration. Since then her doctor has released a letter saying that she has recovered completely and is in good condition. “I think, on the one hand, it is part of the wacky strategy — just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you,” Clinton said, “on the other hand, it just absolutely makes no sense.” Then, to prove her strength, Clinton did what few grandmas can: She opened a jar of pickles.
