Jimmy Fallon is often criticized for going too easy on his guests, but the Tonight Show host said in a recent SiriusXM interview with Bill Carter that asking the tough questions isn’t what he’s there for.

“That’s not my job,” he said. “It’s not Meet the Press. I’m not Face the Nation … We have people on that people don’t like. I know that. But that’s not my job. You make your own opinion. I can just show you the best person that they are and try to bring out their more personal side and play with them.”

Listen to the clip below, along with other bits from the interview where Fallon talks about the state of his injured “Jesus Finger” and the popularity of lip sync battles.
