Get it out of your system, Jimmy. The next time Trump is on your show he could be president. Then you definitely couldn’t do this. Check out the hilarity!
Donald Trump’s famous hair was wildly mussed up when he appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show on Thursday.
The talk-show host closed his segment with Trump by asking if he could do one silly thing with him since he could be president the next time he appears on the show.
‘I’m not liking the sound of this,’ Trump said before Fallon asked if he could mess his hair up.
The audience roared as the Republican nominee pondered the bizarre request but he ultimately agreed.
‘The answer is yes, but… I hope the people of New Hampshire… will understand,’ Trump said, noting he would be there later tonight and did not want his coiffure out of place.
But Fallon certainly sent Trump’s locks flying out of control in every direction.
And while Trump is known for being sensitive about his hair, he smiled throughout the hilarious ordeal.
Afterwards, he tried to push his hair back in place, but it largely resisted.
Back in 2011, Trump shared his in-depth routine for what it takes to get his head of hair to look the way it does.
He told Rolling Stone he lathers his hair in Head and Shoulders in the shower and then lets it air dry which usually takes about an hour.
While it’s drying he said he spends his time reading newspapers.
‘I then comb my hair. Yes, I do use a comb,’ he said. ‘Do I comb it forward? No, I don’t comb it forward.’
He added: ‘I actually don’t have a bad hairline. When you think about it, it’s not bad.
‘I mean, I get a lot of credit for comb-overs. But it’s not really a comb-over.
‘It’s sort of a little bit forward and back. I’ve combed it the same way for years. Same thing, every time.’
Thursday’s hair ordeal came hours after it was reported that Trump’s campaign said he has finally admitted President Barack Obama was born in America, more than five years after first raising doubts about his country of origin.
‘In 2011, Mr Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate,’ Trump’s senior communications adviser, Jason Miller, said in a statement.
It concluded: ‘Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States.’
However, the statement added: ‘Mr Trump did a great service to the President and the country by bringing closure to the issue that Hillary Clinton and her team first raised.’
During the Tonight Show, Trump repeated his comments that he does not want a moderator at the debates and complained that critics of Today show host Matt Lauer are ‘trying to game the system.’
‘Donald, this is getting real,’ Fallon said of the race for the White House.
‘It’s getting real,’ Trump replied.
‘Do you still want to do it? There’s time,’ Fallon joked.
Trump went on to say the presidential campaign has been ‘fun, amazing,’ and that ‘it’s been an honor for me.’
When asked what he would say to children who wanted to grow up to be president he replied: ‘You want to help people,’ noting there are ‘tremendous problems.’
‘If you want to help people there’s no better position to do it from than the presidency.’
Fallon asked Trump if he had always wanted to be president with Trump saying he ‘really never did,’ noting if he had he ‘probably wouldn’t have done as many shows.’
The billionaire businessman then went on to describe his run for president as ‘grueling but at the same time very satisfying,’ adding his background in business has helped him.
Speaking about the primaries, he said he ‘spent less money and did better.’
‘That’s what we want to do for the country, spend less money and do better,’ he said.
