Jimmy Fallon Talks About *That* Trump Interview
0 0

Back in September, Jimmy Fallon interview then-candidate Donald Trump. The banter was lighthearted and casual, including a moment when Trump let Fallon tussle his hair. The blowback was swift and hard, which people calling Fallon out for normalizing Trump and wasting an opportunity to hold 45's feet to the fire. Looking back, the last night host gets it. 

"They have a right to be mad,” Fallon says. “If I let anyone down, it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it. I got it.” He goes on to claim that the hair moment was meant to "minimize" the candidate, not normalize him.

While Fallon doesn't go so far as to say he regrets the interview, he does regret not addressing the backlash on the show. “I’m a people pleaser,” he admits. “If there’s one bad thing on Twitter about me, it will make me upset. So, after this happened, I was devastated. I didn’t mean anything by it. I was just trying to have fun.”
