Late-Night Lately: Britney’s Karaoke, John Krasinski’s Documentary Spoof, Hillary’s Debate Prep

Jimmy Kimmel was greeted by secret service and bomb-sniffing dogs when he returned to work on Monday. “All of course because Hillary Clinton is here,” the host told his Jimmy Kimmel Live! audience. “Who would have guessed the audience would be so excited for the co-creator of ISIS?” 

Referencing the comment made by Donald Trump (who said President Barack Obama was the “founder of ISIS” and that Clinton was the “co-founder”), Kimmel pressed the nominee on how she responds to such a claim. “That was one of the crazier things that has been said during this campaign,” she told the late-night host. “I don’t get upset anymore, because I’d be upset all the time. I think it’s crazy, but also harmful.” 

During Kimmel’s opening monologue, Kimmel said Clinton is gearing up for the general election debates, but that her campaign is having trouble finding a mock stand-in for Trump. “I’m here to ask for your help!” Clinton told Kimmel. “You have to be prepared for wacky stuff that comes at you. I am drawing on my experience in elementary school — the guy who pulled your ponytail.”

Kimmel then turned talk to the DNC’s most viral moment: Bill Clinton’s love for the American-themed balloons that closed out the weeklong event. “It seemed like he had seen balloons for the first time,” said Kimmel, sparking big laughs from Clinton.

He also had her read Trump quotes out of a bowl that was topped with a wig resembling the reality star’s hair. The nominee, however, couldn’t read this one: “I said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter perhaps I’d be dating her.”

Before letting her go, the host pressed Clinton on why she hadn’t picked him as her running mate, ripping on her vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine (who made an appearance on CBS’ Late Show this week), for seeming like a guy who would wear Crocs, a cellphone belt buckle and have a funny song on his voicemail. Finally she conceded and named Kimmel as her “Vice Vice President.”
