Trump Lashes Out at Jimmy Fallon — and Fallon Responds

Jun 25, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Repercussions continue to play out between Donald Trump and NBC “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon going back to when Trump appeared on Fallon’s show in September 2016 — the famous “hair-mussing” incident in the heat of the presidential election.

Fallon recently indicated he regretted his handling of the Trump interview, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I made a mistake. I’m sorry if I made anyone mad. And, looking back, I would do it differently.”

Trump responded to Fallon’s confession Sunday night, tweeting: “@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous ‘hair show’ with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have ‘humanized’ me-he is taking heat. He called & said ‘monster ratings.’ Be a man Jimmy!”

Fallon responded later Sunday, tweeting: “In honor of the President’s tweet I’ll be making a donation to RAICES in his name.”

RAICES is a non-profit group that provides legal aid to migrant families and is fighting Trump’s policies on family separation and deportation.


  1. Can our President do work and stop acting like a mean girl?

  2. Oh, so Jimmy is now going to become political just to make sure that everyone knows that he is a Liberal giving to a Liberal cause. I really believe that Jimmy’s problem, other than alcohol, is his not remaining true to himself and his own instincts.

    • Nice ad hominem attack – keep up the good work!
