Trump tweeted on Sunday night, saying Fallon is “now whimpering to all that he did the famous ‘hair show’ with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have ‘humanized’ me-he is taking heat.”
He concluded by saying, “He called & said ‘monster ratings.’ Be a man Jimmy!”
Trump is referencing a recent interview Fallon did with The Hollywood Reporter where he spoke about the backlash he received after Trump’s appearance.
“I did not do it to ‘normalize’ [Trump] or to say I believe in his political beliefs or any of that stuff,” Fallon told THR.
The show suffered a ratings dive after the interview, which hurt Fallon personally.
“It was definitely a down time,” he said in the interview. “…You go, ‘Alright, we get it. I heard you. You made me feel bad. So now what? Are you happy? I’m depressed … What do you want me to do? … What would make you happy?”
He added that if he had it do all over again he “would do it differently.”
