Hillary Clinton appeared on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday evening with one goal in mind -- trolling Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon playing the real estate magnate, Clinton repeatedly mocked Trump's positions on women's issues. "Look, Donald, what is your stance on women's issues?"


"Look," he replied in kind, "I know a lot of women, and they all have issues."

After Clinton described how she plans to drum up more support for her campaign, Trump complained that she "sounds like a robot. 'Bleep blort, bleep blort. Does not compute.' You want to win, here’s what you gotta do -- first, yell. I yell all the time."

He then showed her that phone wasn't even plugged. "I'm just yelling and you're hearing it," Trump said, before advising her to take controversial positions on things everyone loves, like rainbows, puppies, and fall foliage, which he referred to as "tree puberty."


Clinton later asked whether Trump had "any idea what it’s like to work so hard for something, to be so close to getting it, then someone pops out of nowhere and tries to take it all away?"

"Are you talking about Bernie Sanders?" Trump replied. "Because I hate to say this, but he's losing his hair. I think he's losing his hair."

"But at least he doesn’t have this one strand that he twirls over his head like a soft-serve at Dairy Queen," she said.
