Oh, Boy: Jimmy Fallon Booed For Dissing Hillary Clinton’s Pantsuits

Late night TV’s new kid on the block, Jimmy Fallon, is used to hearing applause on The Tonight Show. This past Monday night, however, he was met with something very different: boos from the crowd.

During his monologue, the funnyman brought up Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy, and then cracked a joke that went like this: “If it’s a girl, it’ll get some of Chelsea’s old hand-me-downs, and if it’s a boy, it’ll get some of Hillary’s.” The audience seemed, well, unimpressed.

Now, Jimmy. A bit of advice: pick up a copy of Vogue. (Or, even better, become a Rue Member. Hint, hint.)  Not only is menswear on-trend this season, but Hillary’s been nailing the whole power-dressing thing since the 80s.

Don’t get me wrong. Everyone (including me) loves you, Jimmy. Even more so when you’re rapping alongside JT. But when it comes to a woman’s closet, I think it’s best you leave it to the experts.
