Discussion: Trump To Jimmy Fallon: 'Be A Man' About Backlash To Hair-Mussing

Of course, the ‘heat’ Fallon took was 1 1/2 years ago. He’s feeling regret now that he may have done even a minor thing that may have helped Trump get elected. It has nothing to do with the ‘heat.’

More important, the implied message here is: “Don’t any of you feel regret for voting for me. Don’t listen to those who are giving my people ‘heat’ or saying that some are ‘humanizing’ me. They don’t matter. Only I matter. Be a man.”

ETA: "And that goes double for Congressional Republicans. "

Members of his Administration are getting some backlash to his child separation policy. Message from the boss-man: man up! (Or woman up, in Nielsen’s and SHS’ cases.)

Let’s face it for decades the Tonight Show was the dominant late night franchise. After the hair musing Fallon lost that position to other more political comedians like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel. I don’t know if the hair mussing alone was Fallon’s downfall. He really is a traditional Tonight Show comedian like Johnny Carson or Jay Leno. Political humor is hard for him. I suspect he is also feeling the heat from the very political Seth Meyers who I am sure NBC views as his successor. In less political times Fallon’s Tonight Show would still be on top.

Fallon may as well have had Duterte on and performed a skit together about extra-judicial executions. Screw him. Trump was a known sociopath and xenophobic bigot when Fallon had him on, he deserves whatever angst and ratings losses that have accrued to him.

@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair)”.

If anybody would know about seriously messing up a clusterfuck, it’d be Trump.

He wears more make-up than a clown when he’s not on TV and he’s challenging another persons manhood?!

He must be having some kind of a reaction to his Viagra.

tRump shouldn’t have been on the show to begin with.
I stopped watching Fallon after that, and haven’t gone back.

Also interesting that he is still so obsessed with his place in the conversation that he would feel the need to respond, and especially to insult someone’s manhood. Why would “a man” feel the need to respond to the article, especially when he has more important things to do? Surely there’s something that he can rescind from Obama–a recognition of something decent in America that he can now degrade. There has to be something.

Seriously, why is he digging up this non-event? I guess it’s easier than Presidentin’.

Stop whimpering? Be a man? This from a guy who whines and bitches over every perceived slight, no matter how long ago? He’s about as stoic and manly as the late-stage Truman Capote.
