Clinton does comic turn with Leno
BURBANK, California – Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on Thursday on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” where the talk show host reminded the audience that Clinton recently compared herself to fictional boxer Rocky Balboa of the movie “Rocky.”
“Is that a good idea?” Leno said. “Don’t we already have a president like Rocky? I mean, isn’t eight years of a guy who talks like he’s been hit in the head too many times enough?”
“It is so great to be here. You know, I was worried I wouldn’t make it. I was pinned down by sniper fire,” she said as she sat down.
“In L.A., that might be true,” Leno replied.
Clinton recently described how she and her daughter, Chelsea, ran for cover under hostile fire shortly after their plane landed in Bosnia in 1996 while she was first lady.
Several news outlets disputed the claim. A video of the trip showed Clinton greeted by a young girl in a ceremony on the tarmac and no sign of tension or any danger.
Clinton has since said she made a mistake.
