Jimmy Fallon, Donald Trump Feud - Watch Response On Tonight Show

Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon" I almost did it to minimise him. I didn't think that would be a compliment

During that interview with the presidential candidate, Fallon thanked Trump "for giving us the material that we are doing" and said he has been "amazing to follow" because "you say some shocking things that I can not even believe".

Trump went after Fallon in a tweet on Sunday, hitting the host for comments he made in a recent interview about his on-air interview with the president.

Jimmy's donation to the Refugee and Immigrant Centre for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) follows controversy over a recently ended U.S. policy of separating migrant children from their families when illegally crossing the border into the US.

Late night host Jimmy Fallon received sharp criticism from the left for his September 16, 2016 interview with then candidate Trump.

"The presenter said he received a lot of flak for messing up Trump's hair and that he did not indulge in the act to "'normalize' him or to say I believe in his political beliefs".

Stephen Colbert, current host of "The Late Show", also had Trump on his program, and while far from aggressive, was more openly critical of Trump's presidency. "First of all, I've never called this human in my life", Fallon said.




Before pointing out his show centres around entertaining and lighthearted interviews, he said, "I saw other comedians from other shows making fun of me on Twitter and I go, 'Okay, now I'm just gonna get off'". I don't want his number.

"By the way, Donald, I don't know if you've seen my ratings the past two years, but you didn't help", added Jimmy.

Trump called out Fallon in front of the crowd of his supporters, saying that Fallon "screwed up" his hair and that Fallon was "disappointed" to find that it was real, referring to the 2016 interview where Fallon tussled Trump's hair. 'So I said to him today on social media, "Jimmy be a man, just relax"'. The awkward segment had faded into the background, but it's back in the headlines again and Fallon used the current Twitter war as a base for his monologue Monday night.

Jimmy Fallon is using his own soapbox to clap back at President Trump. I'm paid to make people laugh. "Get over it."' Fallon adds, 'I'm sorry if I made anyone mad. Still, Jimmy Fallon going political is one of the signs of the Apocalypse, isn't it?

He did praise, however, veteran film maker David Lynch, reading a report in which proclaimed "Trump could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history".
