Donald Trump Just Attacked Jimmy Fallon On Twitter For ‘Seriously Messing Up His Hair’
During a very strange Sunday night Twitter tirade, Donald Trump set his sights on…talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
Trump tweeted, “[email protected] is now whimpering to all that he did the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have “humanized” me-he is taking heat. He called & said “monster ratings.” Be a man Jimmy!”

Trump appears to be referencing an interview Fallon did back in May with the New York Times, which discussed the famous scene on The Tonight Show where Fallon asked then-candidate Trump if he could rustle up his hair. Trump agreed, and many people shamed Fallon for “humanizing” Trump.
From the Times:
Mr. Fallon acknowledges now that the Trump interview was a setback, if not quite a mistake, and he has absorbed at least a portion of the anger that was directed at him by critics and online detractors.
“They have a right to be mad,” a chastened Mr. Fallon said in an interview this month. “If I let anyone down, it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it. I got it.”
Fallon said he did not do it to normalize Trump, who was the Republican nominee at the time.
“You go, ‘Alright, we get it. I heard you. You made me feel bad. So now what? Are you happy? I’m depressed. Do you want to push me more? What do you want me to do? You want me to kill myself? What would make you happy? Get over it,'” Fallon said.
Twitter wasn’t impressed:
"Be a man."

Wow… he's getting epic petty.
And, also, seems annoyed at the suggestion that he was in any way 'humanized'. https://t.co/LumwGjAtvp

The guy who just said "he seriously messed up my hair" is demanding that someone else "be a man." https://t.co/Ij1bxbYRqA

Jimmy Fallon made a mistake and he’s acknowledging it. You are a mistake, and you’re going to prison.

Your hair was seriously messed up way before Jimmy Fallon touched it.

Holy fucking shit you are seriously nuts.

Do you have anything else to do? You are the worst president in history. You've got thousands of missing children, families broken apart, and you have time to Tweet the host of the Tonight show. Be a man Donald! For god's sake. You're an embarrassment!

This man has destroyed thousands of families’ lives…but he still has the audacity to complain about comments made by a talk show host… https://t.co/4t2F9s4hrC

Ignore the Jimmy Fallon tweet- it's Trump's desperate attempt to get people to talk about him tweeting about Jimmy Fallon rather than the lives he is actively destroying…
