Jimmy Fallon wishes 'Happy Halloween' as Trump


ANI Washington D.C. [USA]
American comedian Jimmy Fallon once again got back into character as United States President Donald Trump on his show and delivered a special message to America before Halloween.
During 'The Tonight Show' on Tuesday (local time) Fallon, dressed as a vampire, emerged from a coffin/tanning bed and wished Happy Halloween to his audience.
Without breaking character, Fallon continued to impersonate the commander-in-chief. He said, "Good evening, America. It is I, Count Chocula, wishing you all a very happy Halloween. That's right! I said it. Happy Halloween. It's so great to be able to say Happy Halloween again. The war on 'ween is over. I am here tonight to reach out to the nation's youngest voters: the trick-or-treaters. But first, I would like to talk about my costume. I'm very proud of it. Isn't it fantastic? My vampire costume has been a huge success. All day long, people have been yelling at me, 'You suck!' Thank you. Let's face it, folks: Dracula's a terrific person. He's a great guy. I love his style. He wears a cape, which is basically a giant tie for your back."
"Plus, Transylvania is one of our greatest allies. And I was able to save the taxpayers money but reusing the cape from my costume last year when I was the Count from Sesame Street. There were one million, two million, three million people at my inauguration. Ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah," the late-night host joked.
In his skit, he also mentioned one of Trump's recent public embarrassments and his poor diet.
The bit ended with Fallon answering the door for a trick-or-treater in the West Wing. "Oh, a ghost. Nice try, Jeff Sessions. I know it's you," he said, adding "Take a Big Mac. And Happy Halloween.
