All-female writers of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took to the stage Wednesday night as Miley Cyrus read aloud a thank you note to Hillary Clinton, who was on the show to promote her new book, “What Happened.”
It was the picture of feminist expression, as Cyrus’s voice cracked when thanking Hillary for acting as a “beacon of strength, hope, and determination.”
“Thank you, Hillary, for being a constant beacon of strength, hope, and determination for me and millions of other young women,” the “Malibu” singer said.
“You’ve been a role model and an inspiration, and a voice of reason in uncertain times,” continued Cyrus, who hit the campaign trail during the 2016 race.
Hillary haters likely came close to getting ill as Cyrus asked Clinton for a hug.
“I could go on and on, but I’d like to get right to the point. Can I give you a hug?” asked Cyrus.
Clinton then read a note of her own.
“Thank you, Miley, ‘The Tonight Show’ writers, and all of the women and young girls out there,” Clinton said. “You are smart, strong, and deserving of every opportunity. Together, we’ve made our voices heard, we’ve done great things, and we’ve come a long way.”
“But, as Miley would say,” Clinton said, quoting one of Cyrus’s singles, “we can’t stop and we won’t stop.”
Clinton was promoting her book, “What Happened,” which details what she believes are the unfair reasons she lost the election.
She’s been raking it in on an extensive book tour, and her finances certainly weren’t hurt by the shout out from Cyrus.
