The late-night TV host makes a political statement as he channels the legendary singer on "The Tonight Show."

Jimmy Fallon called out President Donald Trump's most controversial moments while belting out an updated version of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are a-Changin'" on Sunday night.

"Come women and men who hashtag MeToo," Fallon sang in character as the legendary singer while on stage at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis. "And believe me when I say that we believe you. We give the man who calls out 'fake news,' TimesUp. Our silence we're breaking. Even though Mel Gibson was in 'Daddy's Home 2,' the time's they are a-changin'."

Later in the performance, the late-night talk show host ripped on the president's stance against the NFL athletes who chose to take a knee during the National Anthem.

"Come athletes with platforms from throughout the land, who by taking a knee are taking a stand," he sang. "Before you shout out that they should be banned, listen to what they are saying. Perhaps they'd stand up if you'd reach out your hand, for the times they are a-changin'."

He also took aim at POTUS' war against the press and Twitter trolls. Read the full lyrics below:

Come gather round people wherever you roam

And admit that our country don't feel like our home

And that silence speaks louder than those who condone

If a tweet to you is worth favin'

Then lift up your voices and put down your phones

For the times they are a-changin'.


Come women and men who hashtag #MeToo

And believe me when I say that we believe you

For weak is the man who calls truth "fake news"

Time's up, our silence we're breaking

And even though Mel Gibson was in Daddy's Home 2

Well the times they are a-changin'.


Come athletes with platforms throughout the land

Who by taking a knee are taking a stand

And before you shout out that they should be banned

Listen to what they are saying

Perhaps they'd stand up if you reached out your hand

Well the times they are a-changin'.


Come journalists, writers who report the facts

And brandish your pen to fend off his attacks

Look past what he says and look at how he acts

The "fire and fury" is raging

For his words can hurt, but your words can fight back

The New York Times, they aren't a-failin'.


Come leaders who bully like internet trolls

We'll curse you with four-letter words "love" and "hope"

For we will go high even when you go low

The order is rearranging

For you have the power, but we have the vote

The times they are a-changin'.
