Jimmy Fallon responds to Donald Trump’s trolling with donation to RAICES

President Donald Trump on Sunday called out “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon for expressing regrets about his September 2016 interview in which the comic famously tussled the then-candidate’s hair.

“Jimmy Fallon 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,” POTUS tweeted. “Be a man Jimmy!”

Late Sunday, Fallon responded by promising to make a donation — in Trump’s name — to Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a charity providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families and refugees in Central and South Texas.

The nonprofit has gained visibility since the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy for immigrants and asylum seekers arriving at the Southern border.

In a Hollywood Reporter podcast published earlier this month, Fallon talked about the blowback he received for the election-season interview.

“I did not do it to ‘normalize’ him or to say I believe in his political beliefs or any of that stuff,” said the comic, who lost a significant chunk of his audience after Trump won the election.
