Hail to the Trumpster! Donald Trump stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ Sept. 15 to chat with Jimmy Fallon about how campaign life is going for the Republican presidential nominee, and he even let the host mess up his famous coif! Keep reading for the hair-raising video.
Long time no see! Donald Trump, 70, took time out of his busy campaign schedule to sit down with Jimmy Fallon, 41, his first appearance on the show since way back on Jan. 11. My, how much has changed since then as he’s now the official Republican nominee for president! Jimmy made sure to make him feel welcomed and at home, telling him how his presidential run has “amazing and exciting,” and how “you say some shocking things…I can’t even believe.” Donald responded, “But I’m trying not to,” as he’s always playing the nice guy on late night appearances, where he loves to keep things super light.
After getting Donald nice and comfy, Jimmy dropped the big question on him, asking “Can I mess your hair up?” Oh snap! He dared to go THERE! The tycoon never lets anyone near his perfect strawberry blonde coif that magically never moves, so needless to say he wasn’t to thrilled with the request.
After Donald noticeably cringed, Jimmy promised, “I’ll be gentle,” with a sweet smile on his face. “So long as the people in New Hampshire, where I’m going to be in an hour or so — I hope they understand,” Donald responded, begrudgingly going along with the request, telling him to “Go ahead.”
With that, Jimmy put his hand through Donald’s famous mane and shook it around…HARD! Yep, those tresses are the real deal, and were left a total mess when the host was done manhandling his hair. Donald still smoothed out his ‘do so they could continue with the interview without him looking goofy, while Jimmy messed up his own hair so that if the tycoon felt unkempt in any way, the host looked disheveled too! Ah, ya gotta love the lighter side of The Donald!
