Jimmy Fallon impersonates Donald Trump to mock press conference

Yesterday, the President of the United States held an impromptu press conference that left analysts baffled, Donald Trump’s statements confusing almost every onlooker.

Of course, late night hosts were quick to mock Trump, Jimmy Fallon opening his show by donning a wig, orange makeup, and impersonating the republican.

“Welcome, welcome. Thank me, thank me. Buckle up, because I’m coming in hot,” he started. “First question. No. Next.”

Fallon went on to joke how the last four weeks have felt like four years and kept reiterating how Trump "inherited a mess" of an administration.

Michael Flynn’s correspondence with Russia was then brought up by a fake reporter, with Kimmel’s Trump responding: “Look I knew, that he knew, that I knew, that he didn’t know that I knew, that he knew, that I know, that he knew, that I didn’t know, that I knew, that he knew, and now you know.”

For one question, Fallon brought out an eight-ball, which he asked numerous questions before breaking out into Migos’s “Bad and Boujee.”

Other late night hosts to criticise the press conference include Jimmy Kimmel, who lambasted Trump by showing a montage of moments from the event.
