Jimmy Fallon defends choice to not join anti-Trump bandwagon

Jimmy Fallon defends choice to not join anti-Trump bandwagon

Blake Lively does a ballerina move while competing in a dance battle with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Friday (October 13) in New York City.

Fallon is getting the side eye, especially considering his nightly music crew, The Roots, are the type of people Trump wouldn't bother inviting to the White House. As a teaser, "Today" released a segment of the interview where host Willie Geist asks Fallon why he isn't going after Trump.

"I don't really even care that much about politics", added Fallon.

Fallon's remarks come in an interview on his show's parent network, presumably created to drum up some attention for the ratings-hemorrhaging "Tonight Show" host. "I think it'd be weird for me to start doing it now", he responds to Geist in the clip after being asked if he ever feels pressure to tackle any of Trump's latest maneuvers on his show. I gotta be honest. Fallon has lost his once dominant position at the top of the late-night heap since the beginning of the year, falling behind the more political "Late Night with Stephen Colbert" on CBS. "I'm just not that brain". "Colbert's doing great, I mean that's what he's good at". Plenty of late-night viewers don't want to hear Trump jokes - even some those who don't like the president probably want a break - and Fallon's overall strong ratings support that (he's still tops in the 18-49 adult demo).

But while Colbert has always been associated with political satire, including his days with Comedy Central's "The Daily Show", then the "Colbert Report", Kimmel appears to have seized on the anti-Trump movement, which has coincided with a rating spike. "I think when it's organic, I'll dip into it as well". "I remember having him on the show and I was like, 'Sorry, that's my job, I have to do what I have to do, '" the Saturday Night Live alum laughed. He said "With Trump, it's just like every day's a new thing he gives uh, you know, a lot of material".
