Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ communications with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. during last year’s presidential campaign season, which he did not disclose during his confirmation hearings in January, have many calling for the resignation of President Trump’s newly-appointed cabinet member. And Jimmy Fallon already has a few possible job opportunities for the former Alabama senator.

On Thursday’s Tonight Show, the host chimed in on the day’s hot topic: Sessions having recused himself from any investigation involving the president’s campaign and the Russian government.

“White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that when Sessions denied having contact with Russia, he was being 100 percent straight,” said Fallon. “Even Mike Pence was like, ‘C’mon, no one is 100 percent straight.'”

With the pressure on Sessions, Fallon went on to suggest some new career paths for the politician, including serving as “The World’s Oldest Living Boy” at a traveling carnival or starring in the live Broadway version of “The Elf on the Shelf.”

The Tonight Show airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
