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.
