The late-night hosts all addressed Thursday’s hour-long media blitzkrieg by President Trump. Seth Meyers shredded the original jokes that his team wrote because they were worthless after the president’s appearance.
On Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon brought his Donald Trump impression out to lampoon the press conference that took the nation by storm.
Fallon opened his presser by announcing (in his best Donald Trump voice), “Buckle up, ’cause I’m coming in hot. This is gonna be a crazy one. Daddy came to play.”
When former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s resignation was brought up to the orange-faced Fallon, he bellowed, “Look, I knew that he knew that I knew, but he didn’t know that I knew that he knew that I knew that he knew that I knew that he knew. So now you know.”
While Fallon’s Donald Trump appearance seems to be on the edge of going viral and was the talk of the entertainment journalists everywhere on Friday morning, not everybody is a fan. A few weeks ago, left-leaning website The Daily Beast wrote, “Dear Jimmy Fallon, your Donald Trump parody needs to stop.”
However, with Fallon behind the edgier Colbert in the overall ratings and his presidential parody turning heads, it’s unlikely that he’ll move away from his over-the-top commander-in-chief.
