Hillary Clinton is proving her naysayers wrong, one jar of pickles at a time. 

As the official Democratic presidential nominee, the 68-year-old former senator has been under attack for alleged health problems, many tabloids claiming she's on the verge of death. However, the politician took a seat on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night to put the rumors to rest. 

"This has become one of their themes. Take my pulse while I'm talking to you," she told Jimmy Kimmel. "Back in October, the National Enquirer said I would be dead in six months."

Instead, she attributes all of the noise to Republican tactics. "I don't know why they are saying this. On the one hand, it's part of the wacky strategy—just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you…on the other hand, it just absolutely makes no sense."

So, to appease the cynics, Clinton tried to demonstrate her physical aptitude by opening a jar of pickles—and passed with flying colors. 

However, there was another task that may have been a bit more difficult for the presidential candidate—reading Republican opponent Donald Trump's quotes with a straight face. Hillary was up for the challenge. 

"I think apologizing's a great thing, but you have to be wrong," she began, quoting The Donald. "I will absolutely apologize in the hopefully distant future if I'm ever wrong." "That's profound," she quipped stoically. 

Next came a slam at Rosie O'Donnell, whom Trump has famously feuded with for years.

"If I were running The View, I'd fire Rosie O'Donnell. I mean, I'd look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers. I'd say Rosie—you're fired." While the audience laughed, Clinton didn't find the remark amusing. 

"No, that's not funny," she said. "Do you want a 'you're fired' president or a 'you're hired' president?"

While she seemed to make it through the challenge, there was one quote she just couldn't bring herself to say—so Jimmy filled in. 

"I've said if Ivanka [Trump] weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."
