Dr. Evil talks with Jimmy Fallon about his time in the White House, his tell-all book and the perfect running mate.
Are you growing tired of President Trump? How would you like more Evil in the White House? Mike Myers revived the character he made famous across three "Austin Powers" movies on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday, when it was revealed Dr. Evil had just been fired from the Trump cabinet.
Jimmy Fallon got the exclusive video interview with the latest Trump castoff, who seemed to be in pretty good spirits all things considered. He even introduced himself with a dramatic chair turn, which is totally a Dr. Evil classic!
"I gotta say, I had no idea that you were part of the Trump administration," Fallon said in the sketch. "What exactly did you do there?"
"Well naturally I was going to be Secretary of Evil, but Steve Bannon got that job," Evil said.
He then explained he was more of a behind-the-scenes "idea guy" and took responsibility for the wall, among other things. "But I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish," he said. "And I didn't want the Mexicans to pay for it. I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it."
But even Dr. Evil had his limits. When asked if deporting Dreamers was another of his ideas, he shot back, "No Jimmy, even I have my limits. I'm evil but I'm not a monster."
He did dish on a few of his fellow members of Trump's administration including Dr. Ben Carson ("We were both evil doctors who didn't know why we were there") and Don, Jr. ("That guy's creepy AF. He looks like he's missing a facial feature, you just don't know which one.")
Now that he's out, Dr. Evil is ready to promote his tell-all book about the White House, and he started planning his return by announcing his candidacy for president. He had his hats ready: "Make the World Evil Again," and even picked the perfect running mate. "The only man who's more hated right now than Donald Trump. 'Evil-Zuckerberg 2020' Hey America, get ready to be poked!"
