Late Night Tackles Trump Tweets
Jimmy Fallon mocks Trump for tweeting at him
"Before we begin, I just want to give a shout-out to our show's No. 1 fan, the president of the United States," Jimmy Fallon joked on Monday's Tonight Show. "As you may have heard, last night, the president of the United States went after me on Twitter. So Melania, if you're watching, I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working."

"Then I thought, 'Wait, shouldn't he have more important things to do? He's the president of the — what are you doing? You're the president!'" Fallon noted that he responded by making a donation in Trump's name to the immigrant advocacy group RAICES: "When Trump heard that, he was like, 'I love RAICES, they're my favorite peanut butter cup. There's no wrong way to eat a RAICES!'" Then he moved on to joking about "some real news," though it was mostly about Trump. Watch below. Peter Weber
