Jimmy Fallon wore a surgical mask when he interviewed Hillary Clinton Friday night — just days after she was diagnosed with pneumonia.


The late night host was wearing the medical mask when he greeted the Democratic nominee during a taped appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” (RELATED: The Five Medications Hillary Clinton Is Currently Taking And Why)

Clinton’s doctor revealed she had been diagnosed with pneumonia — “a mild, noncontagious form of the bacterial infection” — after video surfaced of her shakily leaving a 9/11 commemoration ceremony last Sunday.

Clinton’s interview with Fallon is set to air Monday night. (RELATED: Donald Trump’s Appearance Gives ‘The Tonight Show’ A Ratings Boost)
