Jimmy Fallon Launches Trump News Network on ‘Tonight Show’
Jimmy Fallon broke out the Tang powder and horsehair wig on The Tonight Show as he launched the Trump News Network. And breaking news: It was pretty funny. “Trump” started the broadcast by saying, “Welcome to TNN. The only news network that is 100 percent fair and 112 percent factual.”
The top story was about the tragic events that didn’t happen in Sweden. Although, as “Trump” put it, “Sweden is still reeling from Friday’s incident that absolutely did happen. Details are still unclear but we’re getting word that it was definitely real, and 100 percent not made up. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Swedish men, women, and fish.”
There was also a weather segment with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos (Jenny Slate) as the “weatherman.” She said, “I like the sun. Whenever it comes out, I say, ‘Hello, sun,’ and look right at it, and sometimes my eyes burn.” And then “Betsy” repeated what she opened the report with, “I’m a weatherman!”
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
