Jimmy Fallon Criticized for Donald Trump Interview: See the Twitter Reactions

Yuge problem? Jimmy Fallon is facing some harsh criticism for the way he handled his sit-down with Donald Trump on The Tonight Show Thursday, September 15.

Some viewers called out Fallon, 41, for keeping the interview too light and playful. He was nonconfrontational and didn’t ask the GOP presidential candidate, 70, any hard questions about the election.

“Jimmy Fallon is an exaggerated example of what the MSM [mainstream media] is doing. Humanizing a monster. The most dangerous thing you could do,” one viewer tweeted.

A second added: “Jimmy Fallon has people play games on The Tonight Show. He should have Trump play Risk and see how quickly he destroys the whole world.”

Viewers seemed particularly unamused when Fallon tousled the real estate mogul’s trademark hair and joked that Trump and Vladimir Putin‘s bromance nickname should be Vlump. (Trump has denied that he is good friends with the Russian president even though he continues to praise him on the campaign trail.)

“I can’t make any jokes about Jimmy Fallon,” one critic tweeted. “The way he showcased Trump like a lovable old grandpa was sickening.”

Others, however, didn’t mind the interview. “People are pissed because Jimmy Fallon had some fun with The Donald. That’s pathetic,” one person wrote.

A second tweeted: “So now Hillary [Clinton] Supporters are mad at Jimmy Fallon because he was nice to another human being. Give me a break. Have a little compassion.”
