After Donald Trump’s weekend tweets criticizing Hamilton and its cast, late-night hosts had their chance to joke about the situation, including The Tonight Show, which came up with some fake Trump tweets about other popular Broadway shows.

On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon discussed Trump’s tweets about Hamilton being “highly overrated” — and provided some (completely made-up) hot takes from the President-elect, like, “Just saw Rent. Such a sad story. I teared up when landlord didn’t evict those kids.”

The Tonight Show host then alluded to Trump’s graphic comments from a recently unearthed 2005 recording where he says “when you’re a star” you can “grab [beautiful women] by the pussy” with a fictional tweet about Cats: “Wish I’d sat in the front row when I saw Cats because all I wanted to do was grab one of them. I can do it because I’m a star!”

Fallon jokingly added after reading the fake tweets, “At least he’s out there supporting the arts.”
