When Miley Cyrus appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she made sure to let Fallon know that she wasn’t going to let him give her the total Donald Trump treatment. Cyrus and Trump both sat down for softball interviews with Fallon last week, but Fallon didn’t go easy on the GOP presidential nominee’s hair; the comedian created a viral moment by mangling Trump’s famous mane.
Miley Cyrus brought up Jimmy Fallon’s interview with Donald Trump during her appearance on The Tonight Show. As Entertainment Weekly reports, The Voice coach was in the middle of performing a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Baby, I’m In the Mood for You” when she decided to comment on Jimmy’s controversial sitdown with the Donald.
“There is nowhere I would rather be than in New York City playing this song with The Roots, and being on Jimmy Fallon with our host, who is always so much fun, except when you’re Donald Trump,” Cyrus said.
Miley Cyrus was seemingly taking a dig at Donald Trump by letting Tonight Show viewers know that she dislikes the presidential candidate so much that she can’t even stand to see Jimmy Fallon doing his Trump impression.
“And then don’t even think about messing with my hair, I’m serious,” Miley added.
After Jimmy Fallon demolished Donald Trump’s sculpted comb-over, Trump’s critics came in like a wrecking ball. Fallon was blasted for keeping his interview with Trump lighthearted and playful and for failing to ask the potential leader of the free world any tough questions. As People puts it, Fallon was criticized for “humanizing a candidate whose opinions have been decried as sexist, racist and xenophobic.”
Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon also didn’t discuss any weighty topics during her interview. Instead, Cyrus talked about her fellow coaches on The Voice, which shares its NBC home with Fallon’s late night show. She also gave Fallon a yoga lesson and participated in a game of Phone Booth.
Miley didn’t get an opportunity to elaborate on her feelings about Donald Trump during her Jimmy Fallon interview, but the former Hannah Montana star has previously made it known that she’s not a fan of the man. Miley has done most of her Trump-thumping on social media, where she has a massive fan following. Back in March, she warned her 38.1 million Instagram followers that the “Party in the U.S.A.” would end if Trump were elected president.
“Donald Trump is a f**king nightmare!” Miley captioned an Instagram photo of Trump.
As Rolling Stone reports, Miley has informed her social media followers that she’s going to move out of the country if Trump wins the presidency, and she’s accused Trump of treating voters like “f**king jam between his rich a** toes.” Miley also slammed Trump for being sexist by comparing the physical appearance of his wife, Melania, to that of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi.
Miley may not be a fan of Donald Trump, but the former Celebrity Apprentice host is an admirer of Miley’s work. During an interview with the New York Times, Miley revealed that Donald Trump was so impressed with the amount of attention that her twerking and tongue-wagging got that he called to congratulate her after her infamous 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance.
“I was staying at the Trump Hotel and Donald Trump literally called and said, basically, ‘I know everyone’s talking about it, but I loved it.’ I had no idea anyone was talking about it yet,” Miley said.
This isn’t the only evidence that Donald Trump is a Miley fanboy. In 2013, he revealed that he was following her love life when he tweeted about her breakup from Liam Hemsworth.
.@MileyCyrus – don’t worry about Liam. You can do much better and you have plenty of time—remain strong!

As Us Weekly reports, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have since made Hollywood romance great again by getting back together. On Friday night, Miley and Liam were spotted holding hands during a dinner date at Catch restaurant in Manhattan.

Miley and Liam were also photographed grabbing a bite to eat back in July, and People reports that Miley Cyrus was wearing an American Apparel hat that Donald Trump probably wouldn’t approve of. The headwear was emblazoned with the words “Make America Gay Again,” a tweaked version of his campaign slogan. It’s the perfect accessory to protect your hair from late night talk show hosts who want to muss it up for laughs.
