On Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hillary Clinton said she is not at all worried about 15,000 previously unreleased emails set to be released about a week before her first debate with Donald Trump, and Kimmel asked her, "How do you prepare for a debate with Donald Trump?" "I'm here to ask for your help?" Clinton joked. Kimmel laughed and reframed the question: "Can you prepare for a debate with Donald Trump?"

"Well, you have to prepare," she said. "I watched a lot of his debates during the primaries, and he insulted all of his opponents, he insulted all of the moderators, he insulted I guess about 80 percent of the American people and the rest of the world, and so how do you prepare for that?" She said that she is preparing for a substantive debate to help win over undecided voters, "but you've got to be prepared for, like, wacky stuff that comes at you. I am drawing on my experience from elementary school." You know, she added, "the guy who pulled your ponytail." The guy who pulled your ponytail, Kimmel pointed out, liked you, so "maybe Donald Trump has a secret crush on you?" "This is how great rumors get started," Clinton said. You heard it here first.
