According to The Roots, Hillary Clinton Is in Tip-Top Shape

They let you know through music, of course.

Published September 20th

Hillary Clinton has been doing her best to convince everyone she’s perfectly healthy after a case of pneumonia plagued her on the campaign trail.

The Democratic nominee for president appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and, from all appearances, looked healthy. According to Fallon’s in-house band The Roots though, she’s “Mighty Healthy.”

The band is known for playing subliminal music selections as guests walk over to the interview chair and decided to play Ghostface Killah’s Supreme Clientele classic “Mighty Healthy.” Proceeding her sit-down, Jimmy Fallon continued the jokes by donning a surgical mask and hand sanitizer.

During the interview, Clinton was asked about her health. She of course reiterated that she’s fine and really just needed some rest. “Nothing like a little rest when your doctor tells you to and you don’t do it,” she explained. “I’m used to just getting up and powering through it and it turned out I couldn’t.”

Previously, The Roots made headlines for playing the Fishbone song “Lyin’ A** B***h” as former Republican presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann walked out on set. It’s an act The Roots nearly lost their Tonight Show gig over.

Check out the full Tonight Show episode below. Hillary Clinton walks on stage at around the 11:30 mark.
