Jimmy Fallon responds to Trump: ‘Why are you tweeting at me?’

Jimmy Fallon got criticism after Trump won the election

President Trump is locked in yet another feud with an unlikely opponent: "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon, who, after expressing regret for his infamous 2016 interview with Trump, caught the president's ire.

"It's just not what I do", Fallon said in an interview last October, when asked about the pressure to be in the "anti-Trump lane" like so many of his fellow late-night hosts. "So Melania, if you're watching, I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working". Fallon says he realized that he had more important things to do, then quipped that the president is the one who really should have more important things to do.

Hours after the US President's damning tweet, Fallon responded, saying he would be making a donation to RAICES Texas, the non-profit firm that provides legal services to immigrants. This tweet came after Fallon apologised for tousling the Republican's hair in an episode of his show in September 2016, where Trump had come as a guest.

Fallon also told THR that "I'm one of the good people", asking those criticizing him to look at the totality of his body of work.

Fallon also dismissed Trump's claim that Fallon called him for "monster ratings".

"So Jimmy Fallon apologized, he apologized for humanizing me", Trump said during the rally.

In his monologue on "The Tonight Show", Fallon said that he wanted to tweet back, but paused since he had "more important things to do". I'm depressed. Do you want to push me more?

"By the way, Donald, I don't know if you've seen my ratings the past two years, but you didn't help". Be a man Jimmy!' he said in a Trump-esque voice while showing the graphic of the actual tweet.

When Fallon down at his desk after the monologue, he continued the story, filling in some of the context.

The president said he'd no longer do Kimmel's show because the late-night host is 'terrible'. Trump said that he "made a fortune" for NBC with "The Apprentice", but complained that the network now treats "me horribly"."I think they are worse than CNN", he said. I'm sorry if I made anyone mad.

"Jimmy Fallon calls me up and he's like a nice guy".

Jimmy Fallon is using his own soapbox to clap back at President Trump.

Fallon isn't the only comedian in Trump's line of sight.
