Clinton got the last word in Saturday’s Democratic debate, using the end of her closing statement to reference “Star Wars” on the weekend the latest movie in the series hits theaters.
 
“Thank you, good night, and may the force be with you,” she said to applause.
 
The Twitter account @Yoda — which is not verified on Twitter and not affiliated with the film franchise — tweeted approvingly moments after the remarks.
 
 
J.J. Abrams, director of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and his wife have given at least $1 million to Priorities USA Action, an outside group supporting Clinton for president.
 
Clinton’s comment was seemingly an echo of President Obama, who on Friday wrapped up an hour-long end-of-the-year press conference by saying, “OK, everybody, I got to get to 'Star Wars.’ ”
