The position remains open: Jimmy Fallon is still interviewing candidates for president, putting Hillary Clinton in the hot seat on Thursday's episode of the Tonight Show; Donald Trump sat for a mock job interview on Monday. Clinton had a few clever retorts to Fallon's clipboard of questions. Asked how she heard about the position, she replied, "Fourth grade social studies," per Time. Then, after remarking that she has the experience and qualifications necessary for the job, she assured Fallon, "I have references." In terms of her typing skills, she remarked that "on a real keyboard, I can actually type with more than one finger."

Fallon got in a dig when he asked if there was an email address Clinton could be reached at. But Clinton got her own dig in on Trump. "He's a lot more obsessed with me than I am of him," she said. Fallon suggested she should play a drinking game, taking a shot every time she’s mentioned during the Republican debate. "I don't think I would make it past the first half hour," she said. She did admit, though, that "it'll be quite the showdown" if she and Trump are the last two standing, per NBC News. That led neatly into discussion of the "tight race" for the Democratic nomination. Clinton said it was "pretty exciting," noting early polls showing her with a major lead over Bernie Sanders were "artificial," per CNN. (More Donald Trump stories.)
