Despite being fired from The Apprentice in June, Donald Trump found himself back on NBC on Friday night as the Republican presidential frontrunner. Jimmy Fallon teamed up with Donald Trump to pull off a very special interview—Donald Trump interviewing Donald Trump. (Oh boy, this should be good.) If you’re expecting a lot of overblown bravado and self-aggrandizing jokes, you’ll get exactly what you came for.
“How are you going to create jobs in this country?” Fallon-as-Trump asks real Trump.
“I’m just gonna do it,” responds Trump, shrugging it off like it’s as easy as changing a tire.
“Right. But how?” pushes faux-Trump.
“By doing it. It just happens,” he insists. (OK.)
Real Trump did offer a real eyebrow-raiser for his vice-presidential nominee, though.
“Vice President’s a very serious position,” he said. “I’d say maybe Kanye West.”
Sorry, Trump; I think Kanye already has his presidential team booked.
To date, the Donald has yet to reveal absolutely ANY specific details on any of the things that he talks about. Instead, he prefers to speak in generalities such as, “we need to cut taxes, we need to be respected in the world again, etc., etc.”
Even though this is one of the funniest skits you might see in a long time, what makes it sad is that this is the same answer Trump gives even on the campaign trail. And, somehow Republicans still like him.
The fact that Donald Trump is leading Republicans in the polls tells you that Republican voters are one stupid lot.
Trump opted not to renew his television contract for The Apprentice, generating speculation that he might run for president of the United States in 2016.
