After Fallon initially asked about Trump apologizing, the business mogul joked that “this was not supposed to be one of the questions”. The bantering started with Fallon also calling himself a lightweight as a host.
He said: ‘Kanye has been so nice to me. “No way he deserves to interview me”, Fallon joked while in character. Trump got wind that CNN would be upping their advertising rates 4,000 percent in anticipation of how many viewers would be tuning in to see him, and decided to put the cable news channel in an awkward position.
In addition to the interview, Trump filmed a sketch with Fallon impersonating the self-obsessed billionaire as he prepared for the interview, in a dressing room covered with portraits of him.
Fallon: How are you going to create jobs in this country?
Trump laughed. “Nobody believed I was doing it”, he said.
“By doing it. It just happens”.
While Trump didn’t seem entirely comfortable in the late-night setting – he sat up straight the whole time – he told Fallon he’d come back on the show soon. In the sketch, West’s name was brought up as Trump’s possible running mate. “Vice President’s a very serious position”. As for immigration, the Republican candidate said he wants to build a wall at the Mexican border, adding, “We may build it with immigrant labor” and call it “the Trump Wall”. “I’d say maybe Kanye West”.
“All right, me”, deadpanned Fallon, who was wearing heavy face makeup and a wig resembling Trump’s signature, reddish blonde hair.
Trump has been giving comedians like Fallon plenty of material to work with ever since he entered the race in June.
Kanye West had earlier broken the Internet when the rapper announced his wish to run for Presidency in the year 2020.
After a couple seconds, Trump launched into his stump speech, talking about people in the USA who are “tired of being ripped off” and how the Obama administration was negotiating bad deals on trade and with Iran, and how institutions like the Veterans Administration were failing miserably.
“It’s gonna be uuuuge”, said Trump and Fallon playing Trump. “I think I have the right song for you“, the host said before playing a clip of “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled. She’s got her server in her bathroom in that place in Denver?
“I went to jail for absolutely nothing. It’s wrong”.
The loud mouth gets to talk a lot. “Think back to when you were little Donnie Trump”, he said. “And I think if you keep digging, eventually you might come out in China and be the president of China”. They feel I’ll be able to do that. Fallon said, “I’ve been working on my Luscios Lyon impression”. I leave that to Bobby Jindal.
