Late Night Tackles President Trump
"Today is Columbus Day," Jimmy Fallon noted on Monday's Tonight Show, adding that some cities are now calling it "Indigenous Peoples Day." Well, he said, "most people said call it whatever you want as long as we get a mattress for 30 percent off." The jokes got better. President Trump marked the day by calling Columbus a "skilled navigator," Fallon continued. "Then at his Comi-Con speech he called Darth Vader a 'good dad.'" He played footage of Trump apparently claiming to have invented the word "fake," quipping: "Fake? What better way to celebrate Columbus Day than pretending you discovered something?"
Fallon turned to the Twitter fight between Trump and Sen. Bob Corker, ending with Corker's sick burn. "Now, a lot of people don't know this, but the White House does actually have an adult day-care center," he said, "and we have the director, Wendy Walker, here to talk about it." After that interview, he had one joke on Harvey Weinstein being fired from The Weinstein Company, involving Fox News.
Also on Monday's show, Tyler Perry donned his Madea character and became press secretary to Fallon's President Trump. Watch below. Peter Weber
