“Thank you so much,” Fallon told Clinton as he reached into his desk for the mask. “It is great to have you here.”
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)
