Donald Trump may have originally liked comedian Jimmy Fallon, especially considering he allowed Fallon to mess up his beloved hair on national television in 2016. But those feelings have soured on both ends now, and Fallon just pulled a move that ensures there is no going back.
Trump started the feud with Fallon last night when he took to Twitter to whine about how Fallon has been voicing his regrets about having Trump on his show and humanizing the then-presidential candidate. Trump told Fallon to “be a man” as he wrote:
“@jimmyfallon 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. He called & said ‘monster ratings.’ Be a man Jimmy!”

Trump was reacting to a new interview Fallon had given, where the comedian lamented painting the future president in a favorable light.
Fallon could have responded to this tweet in several different ways, but I think the route he chose was brilliant. In response to Trump’s ridiculous attack on him, Fallon has pledged to give money to the nonprofit Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) in honor of Trump. When announcing this on Twitter, Fallon made sure to stress that this donation to RAICES would be made in Trump’s name, which is sure to fill the racist POTUS with rage.
In honor of the President’s tweet I’ll be making a donation to RAICES in his name.

Trump is going to freak out when he sees this. RAICES provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrant families and children — the very people Trump has been hell-bent on destroying. RAICES has also created a fund that will help reunite the children and families who were separated from each other thanks to Trump’s inhumane zero tolerance policy. Trump did himself a major disservice by attacking Fallon — and it hilariously backfired.
