Jimmy Fallon's Donald Trump press conference sketch basically wrote itself
Feb 17 2017 by Francis Osborne
Known for his huge online presence, Fallon will brings along with him numerous popular segments, celebrity sketches and musical parodies that fans have grown to love on "Late Night", including #Hashtags, Thank You Notes and Slow Jam the News. "First question. No. Next", Fallon started the show with these words. Despite all of this, Fallon not only allowed Trump on to his show but went as far as to pet his hair while he was there.
He provided responses that didn't directly address the questions, "We've made so much progress". Four more weeks! Four more weeks!
When asked if he knew about Flynn's conversations with Russian diplomats, Fallon's Trump responded, "Look, I knew that he knew that I knew, but he didn't know that I knew that he knew that I knew that he knew that I knew that he knew". I'm now calling it faux news. If you think it was like any other President's interaction with the media, wait till you watch this. We inherited a mess. "And I'm going to leak it in about 15 minutes". Trump opposed the merger in the final weeks of the presidential campaign, specifically citing CNN, which isn't normal, according to University of Maryland journalism historian Mark Feldstein.
Fallon as Trump addressed the assembled press: "First of all you're all fake news".
While he's going to troll Trump regardless, one has to wonder if his recent slip-up against Colbert led to a more Trump-heavy troll with this sketch. We'd say that Trump jokes have become fish in a barrel if he hadn't also boasted that his nuclear holocaust would be the biggest.
