"You've inspired so many people around the country, including many right here on our staff at The Tonight Show", Fallon told the former secretary of state.

"You taught me that when dealing with a hard defeat, it's OK to take some time to reflect, set your focus on a new path forward, and maybe find a cave in the woods to scream into", one guest said.

One guest who did try to comfort Clinton brought up the fact that having a greater popular vote total is politically pointless but does qualify as winning a "popularity contest".

Other notes throughout the clip offered Clinton some well-needed laughs (and made a few digs at President Donald Trump).

"You know recently with the hurricanes and particularly the damage in the Virgin Islands and in Puerto Rico-you know I was right in the middle of our government responding to the disgusting effects of the earthquakes in Haiti-so I knew what we're capable of doing", the former secretary of state said.

Of course, the jokes started coming faster and faster as the segment continued, including gems like this one: "Thank you, Hillary, for all the work you've done for public health care; ever since the election, I've really depended on my government-subsidized anti-anxiety medication". "You show girls everywhere that politics isn't a popularity contest - because if it were, you would have won by about 3 million votes". One by one, they took to Fallon's desk to share their heartfelt - and amusing - messages.

Last night, meanwhile, she was also read notes of thanks by The Tonight Show's female writers as a piano played in the background. "Can I give you a hug?"

Meanwhile, Cyrus got through about two words before choking up as she thanked Clinton for being a role model, inspiration and a voice of reason.

Miley Cyrus's sit-down with shock-jock Howard Stern on Wednesday was full of revelations about her on-and-off relationship with now-fiancé Liam Hemsworth. "But as Miley would say, we can't stop and we won't stop". The "Wrecking Ball" singer - who rekindled her romance with the heartthrob past year - has admitted her stomach churns when she learns that her handsome partner is working with attractive women on a new film, but she's happy not to ask too many questions because she has friends who keep an eye on him.
