Jimmy Fallon Claps Back In The Best Way After Being Told By Trump To ‘Be A Man’ About Pre-Election Interview

Donald Trump once again had a busy weekend on Twitter. In addition to going after the Red Hen, a small Lexington, VA, restaurant, for asking Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave, Trump also attacked Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon regarding an interview he gave to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the interview, Fallon opens up about his regrets for the light-hearted interview he gave Trump leading up to the election. In the segment, Trump allowed Fallon to reach over and muss his hair. With so many eyebrow raising moments with then-candidate Trump, people criticized Fallon for lobbing softballs instead of tough questions.

Fallon said in the interview:

I did not do it to ‘normalize’ him or to say I believe in his political beliefs or any of that stuff. It’s all in the fun of the show. I made a mistake. I’m sorry if I made anyone mad. And, looking back, I would do it differently.

At this point, everyone knows if you say anything critical about the President, it’s only a matter of time before he throws a twit-trum.  Trump did not disappoint. 

Fallon opted to take the high road and responded with the following tweet. 

Twitter supported Fallon’s decision. 

Of all the late night talk show hosts to pick a fight with. 

People are growing weary of yet another fight started by Trump. 

But there were some people who criticized Fallon for not remaining neutral. 

The host’s “Falpals” came out in big support. (Yes, that’s a thing.)
