‘Get Over Yourself!’ Hillary Clinton Chides Undecided 2024 Voters to Jimmy Fallon


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent a message to those dreading the forthcoming rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.

During an appearance on Monday’s “The Tonight Show,” Clinton — who was on the program to promote her new role as a Broadway producer — was asked by host Jimmy Fallon what she would tell voters who may be “upset that those are the two choices.”

Clinton was promoting the Broadway musical Suffs, which was about the Suffragettes, a musical about the importance of voting. This led to Fallon bringing up the 2024 presidential election and asking Clinton for her opinion on the rematch between Trump and Biden.

“I mean, it’s [President Joe Biden] versus [former President Donald Trump]. We know that,” Fallon said while laughing.

“Yes. It is. It is,” Clinton said.

Fallon then asked: “What do you say to voters who are upset that those are the two choices?”

“Get over yourself, those are the two choices,” Clinton declared.


“Yeah. I love that,” Fallon responded.

“You know, it’s kind of like, one is old and effective and compassionate, has a heart, and really cares about people, and one is old and has been charged with 91 felonies. I don’t understand why this is even a hard choice. Really. I don’t understand it,” Clinton said.

She added, “But we have to go through the election and hopefully people will realize what’s at stake because it’s an existential question. What kind of country we’re going to have, what kind of democracy we’re going to have. And people who blow that off are not paying attention, because it’s not like Trump, his enablers, his empowers, his allies are not telling us what they want to do. I mean, they’re pretty clear about what kind of country they want.”

“Get out there and vote,” Fallon said.

“Get out there. This is a that’s what this is really about. Get out there and vote,” Clinton said.


Trump got another round of good news last week after a new poll found that many self-described Democrats support his disruptive political style.


According to a series of polls conducted by Harvard CAPS/Harris, there has been a notable uptick in the number of Democrats who view Trump more favorably rather than as “a danger to democracy” who would exacerbate divisions within the United States, Newsweek reported.

“The pollster’s March survey found that 33 percent of Democrats say Trump will shake up the country for the better, a three-point uptick from February’s poll and a five-point increase from January’s poll. Comparatively, the number of Democrats who see Trump as ‘a danger to democracy and will hopelessly divide the country if elected’ has decreased from 72 percent in January to 70 percent in February and 67 percent in March,” the outlet noted.

Newsweek added:

In November, 29 percent of Democrats saw Trump as shaking up the country for the better, while 71 percent called him a danger to democracy.

The trend casts a shadow over recent polls that have signaled good news for President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign. The Democrat has been able to make significant gains against Trump in several swing states over the last six months, suggesting that Biden could make a comeback, even as their rematch tightens.

That said, several polls have shown Trump ahead of or tied with Biden in most swing states since the beginning of the year.

Polling has not been good for Biden.

In a separate USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll, Trump defeated Biden 40% to 38%, drawing a near-tie in a volatile electorate as the candidates get underway.

A sizable portion of voters were dissatisfied with their options and receptive to being convinced, according to the first USA TODAY survey conducted since the two candidates secured their presidential nominations.

“Nearly eight months out, the election is not set yet. One in four of those surveyed said they might change their minds before November. That unsettled sentiment was bipartisan, including 14% of Biden voters and 15% of Trump voters,” USA Today reported.
