You can bet Jimmy Fallon is regretting that time he tried to make Donald Trump likable on The Tonight Show. During his opening monologue last night (April 14), there were no jokes, just seriousness while addressing the weekend’s racist violence in Charlottesville.
“What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, was just disgusting. I was watching the news like everyone else, and you’re seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach,” said Fallon before mentioning he didn’t know how to explain this to his daughters.
Then like most everybody, Fallon pointed out it was shameful that it took Cheeto two days to denounce racists and white supremacists.
He added, “It’s important for everyone, especially white people in this country, to speak out against this. Ignoring it is just as bad as supporting it.”
Peep his full statement below.
