Donald Trump interviews, well, Donald Trump as the made-for-late-night-television candidate appeared on Friday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Trump spoke with his “reflection”— a parody played by host Jimmy Fallon — in a skit where he is supposedly preparing for the interview.
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s first late-night TV appearance as a presidential candidate was, predictably, as colorful as the man himself.
Trump has vowed in the past that he would build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to prevent undocumented immigrants from crossing the border. Asked how he’d do that, the real Trump shot back at his reflection, “Since I’m you, why don’t you tell me?”
“How am I going to get Mexico to build the wall?” Fallon-as-Trump retorted. “Easy: I’ll challenge them to the biggest game of Jenga ever. I’ll make them set up the board. And then when they finish, I’ll say I don’t want to play anymore.”
The real Trump got a few moments to talk about how he’d create jobs — “just by doing it” — and how he’d help the economy, but the stand-out moments were Fallon’s dead-on facial impressions of the Republican front-runner.
After Trump offered up a few policy proposals, his reflection admitted, “I’m sorry, I wasn’t paying attention. I was too busy staring at my beautiful reflection. I’m like a Greek god who just took a bath in a pumpkin spice latte.”
