Jimmy Fallon imagines a Trump-approved New York Times commercial
The New York Times unveiled a splashy new ad campaign this week — complete with an Oscars commercial — that emphasizes the importance of hard-hitting journalism. Now thanks to Jimmy Fallon, we have an idea of what President Trump’s version of the campaign would look like.
On Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon presented a faux Times commercial that Trump ostensibly made a few edits to.
“In today’s world, journalism is more important than ever,” a narrator says over stock footage of busy printing presses. “And the New York Times is your source for top-notch reporting each and every day.”
Right on cue, a clip of Trump cuts in and blurts, “Wrong!”
“Our reporters won’t rest until they deliver the truth right to your front door,” the commercial says.
“Fake news!” Trump counters. See who gets the last word in the video below.
The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
