Jimmy Fallon has already had many presidential candidates come on The Tonight Show, including Bernie Sanders, Carly Fiorina, and Donald Trump. Entertainment Weekly reports that Fallon decided it was time for Mr. Trump to come back for a job interview and had him on the show a few days ago.
“I know you know a lot about hiring the right people for the position,” Fallon started.
“Uh oh, this sounds like trouble,” Donald intervened.
“I was wondering if maybe we should do a mock job interview with you, I mean you’re running for the biggest job in the world, the most important job in the world,” Fallon said.
“Let’s go,” said Donald.
For the record, this isn’t the first time that Donald Trump has appeared on The Tonight Show. Back in September, Donald came on the show to do a comedy sketch where Fallon dressed up like him and acted like he was talking to himself in the mirror.
It seems like Fallon either likes Donald or likes making fun of him. Either way, it’s entertaining to watch.
Getting back to the interview, Fallon goes through the usual interview questions such as “How did you hear about the position?” and “Do you want to tell me a little bit about yourself?”
Trump joked in response, “Well I’m an extraordinarily handsome person, I have a beautiful head of hair, I was always a good student and I always worked hard.”
When asked why he wants the job, Trump responded, “Because I want to make America great again,” to which he received a fair amount of applause from the audience.
The biggest surprise response was when Fallon asked Trump about his strengths, to which he responded, “Believe it or not, I bring people together, I really can bring people together. A lot of people would say it’s the exact opposite, but I unify.”
“I’ll get along with Democrats, with Republicans, with Liberals, with Conservatives, and that’s what we need in this country we need to bring it together because it’s very divided.”
When asked about his weaknesses, Trump talked about how he never forgets.
“I’m too nice for too long, and… when somebody takes advantage of a situation, I become too bad for too long. So I think I maybe have to have a bit of a shorter memory.”
That response was a unique introspective moment that we haven’t really seen much of from Donald Trump.
Yesterday Donald held a rally in Iowa, where Ted Cruz holds a three-point lead, according to USA Today.
“The final days of Iowa will be a dogfight,” said GOP strategist Jeff Miller.
The race for the nomination is getting tight, and Bill O’Reilly came on The Tonight Show himself a month ago to discuss why he thinks Trump is doing so well in the final months and days.
“That’s why Trump is ahead in the polls, he just says what he wants to say and he takes on all-comers, and folks want to see what you’re made out of,” he said.
“This is a unique time in American history, for the first time we have two outsiders who may get the Republican nomination,” O’Reilly continued. “Trump builds buildings, and Carson’s a doctor, but people are so angry on the Republican side about the State of the Union that they not only want a President but an Avenger.”
If Trump wins the GOP nomination, he might come talk to Jimmy Fallon once again before election season rolls in.
