Jimmy Fallon plays with then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s hair on a Sept. 15, 2016 episode of ‘The Tonight Show’
President Trump mocked on “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon on Twitter Sunday after the comedian expressed his regret about how he treated a guest appearance by then-candidate Trump in September 2016.
The President said that Fallon is “wow, he has the famous “hair-show with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & he would have done it differently, because you have said, ‘humanized’ me-he takes the heat.”
.@Jimmy Fallon is now in front of everyone, that he is the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have done it differently, because it is said to be “humanized” to me-he takes heat on. He called & said “monster rating.” A man, Jimmy!

Trump also claimed that Fallon had called him, after the Sept. 15, 2016, the episode and said he had done “- monster reviews” before concluding,” a man, Jimmy!”
The trump card of the opponents hit Fallon for what you as a softball interview in which the former “Saturday Night Live” star, the playful line, the Republican candidate for the hair. Fallon, the NBC show at some point, more than a fifth lost his audience and his late-night crown from Stephen Colbert’s a liberal, “The Late Show” on CBS — a change that analysts have in the political tide.
Fallon said a Hollywood Reporter podcast last week that he “made a mistake”, as he treated Trump’s appearance, but denied that he supported the candidate: “I have it not to ‘normalize’ him, or say, I think, in his political beliefs, or any of the stuff.”
Discuss the game on the episode, Fallon said: “It is hard for the morale. You go, ‘Okay, we get it. I’ve heard you. You made me feel bad. So, now what? Are you happy? I’m depressed. You want to push me more? What are you gonna do to me? You want me to kill myself? What would make you happy? Get over it.'”
The host is also decred what he called a “gang-mentality” to the criticism.
“People are just jumping on the bandwagon, and some people don’t even want to listen to something else. They’re like, ‘no, you knew that!’ You go, ‘Now, just calm down and watch the whole thing, and actually see my body of work.'”
