The 'Tonight Show' host reveals what the president said about 'Fences,' 'Lion,' 'Hell or High Water,' and 'Jackie.'
We know Donald Trump likes Finding Dory, but what does he think about some of the Oscar-nominated films? Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon channeled the president by predicting what he might say in tweet-worthy reviews of some of this year’s awards contenders.
On Fences, starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis: “Should’ve been called ‘Walls.'”
On Lion, starring Dev Patel: “I thought a movie called ‘Lion’ would be about CNN. #FAKENEWSREALPUN.”
On Hell or High Water, starring Chris Pine and Ben Foster: “Thanks to my climate plan — we can have BOTH!”
On Jackie, starring Natalie Portman: “A First Lady who actually lives in the White House? FAKE!”
Check out the reviews in the video below, starting at the 3:10 mark.
During his opening monologue on Friday, Fallon also imagined what a Trump-approved commercial for The New York Times might look like. As you might expect, it involves a lot of exclamations, like “Wrong!” and “Fake news!”
The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
