Jimmy Fallon wasn’t very nice to Hillary Clinton during Monday night’s edition of NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

After invoking Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy announcement, Fallon mocked her mother, the former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential contender, for dressing like a man.

“I want to say congrats to Chelsea Clinton. Last week she announced that she is expecting her first child,” Fallon said, setting up the joke. “That’s great. That’s great for her. If it is a girl, it will get some of Chelsea’s old hands-me-downs.”

“And if it is a boy,” he continued, “it will get some of Hillary’s.”

“It wasn’t that hard of a joke!” Fallon protested as some in the audience expressed disapproval.
