Posted on

Jimmy Fallon couldn’t let Jon Stewart steal all the Donald Trump late-night jokes, so he decided to pull out his Trump impression on The Tonight Show.

On Monday’s episode, Fallon — complete with toupée and quickly applied tanner — appeared as Trump in a phone call with Barack Obama (played by Dion Flynn). Surprisingly, it’s Obama who called Trump, wanting to give the Republican candidate some advice for the upcoming GOP debate. Even Trump finds that curious, but Obama’s “ready for some entertainment,” in the White House, and is willing to lend a helping hand.

Watch the sketch below as the two discuss Trump’s debate style, his surprising autotuning skills, and the surprising identity of his dentist.
