"This book has so many made-up facts," Fallon jokes in spot-on impersonation of our president.
And we gotta admit, he had good reason to on Wednesday while dressing up as President Donald Trump to rebuke Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," which is the third book to make this administration look like fools by giving readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the daily chaos. Everything Fallon said sounded so true to Trump, how can he not laugh at the ridiculousness?
"Woodward's book is totally biased, full of lies and an absolute disgrace. But I admit, I haven't read it," an orange-faced Fallon said while struggling to contain his own laughter. "Because like all books, I'm just waiting for the movie."
It's funny because it's reportedly true. One of the allegations in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" was that the president may only be semi-literate, because he doesn't read and barely even skims.
Trump has already gone on a signature tweet tirade denouncing the latest book, which may be the most credible yet, considering the author is the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who uncovered the Watergate scandal, which ultimately led to President Richard Nixon's resignation.
Trump tweeted in the last two days that the "book is boring & untrue," "total fiction," "a con on the public," "discredited," and even suggested Woodward was "a Dem operative."
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted, "Isn’t it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost. Don’t know why Washington polit
All of that just made Fallon's take even funnier (or scarier, depending on how you look at it) because the absurdity coming out of his mouth could barely, if at all, top the absurdity of the president's statements -- like saying he's "never" called anyone "retarded," only for video evidence of Trump doing just that on "The Howard Stern Show" -- twice -- immediately resurface.
It's just one of many instances of the president's statements quickly being discredited by fact checkers, so Fallon took it to the next level, with his version of President Trump discrediting his own statements in the very next breath.
"Firstly, addressing criticism is very out of character for me, it really is. Because I'm usually very thick skinned and not easily offended, because this book has so many made-up facts. So many," Fallon's Trump said. "That I like to call people mean names, this is a lie. And Bob 'Four-Eyed, No-Talent, Soup-Breath' Woodward should be ashamed."
"It also says I call my Attorney General Jeff Sessions a 'dumb Southerner.' That's ridiculous, he's from Alabama, so if anything he's dumb Northerner," he joked.
You get the idea. Watch the sketch for yourself above.
