Fallon and Clinton’s skit imagined what a (mostly) friendly phone call between the two presidential candidates would sounds like.
“I know you’re about to do your interview with Jimmy Fallon,” Fallon said as Trump. “But he’s a total lightweight. I’m going to do you a favor and interview you instead.”
Clinton seized the opportunity to emphasize the differences between herself and Trump, highlighting her stance on gender equality.
“Donald, I’ve spent my entire career fighting for women’s rights,” Clinton said. “I’ll push for equal pay in the workplace, I’ll protect women’s health and reproductive rights, and I’ll make quality, affordable childcare a reality for families. I’m curious. What’s your stance on women’s issues?”
“I know a lot of women and they all haves issues,” Fallon/Trump said.
Fallon even managed to work in a toupee joke, in addition to lampooning Trump’s campaign tactics, which were also on display at the GOP debate earlier that evening.
“You wanna win, here’s what you gotta do. First: Yell. I yell all the time,” Fallon’s Trump said. “In fact, this phone isn’t even plugged in. I’m just yelling, and you’re hearing me. Next: Pick 3 things everyone loves, and say you hate them.”
Fallon also donned the Trump wig to interview the real Trump earlier this month.
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
