Twice-impeached former president Donald Trump offered to head up peace talks between Russia and Ukraine this week, and Jimmy Fallon thinks there might be some logic behind that. On Wednesday’s show, the late night host joked that Trump is an “expert” in foreign affairs — but maybe not the political kind.
Trump was an early target in Fallon’s monologue thanks to his latest antics. in to post to his social media app Truth Social on Wednesday, he noted that the war between Russia and Ukraine “would definitely not have happened if I were President.” He went on to offer his personal assistance from him in establishing a peace deal, writing “Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”
As always, Fallon had a one-liner at the ready — and it earned two rounds of laughter and applause from his audience.
“Yeah, Trump said ‘I’m an expert on foreign affairs, I’ve had affairs with many foreigners,’” Fallon joked.
Fallon also poked at another new Trump revelation this week, courtesy of another new book about his presidency. In New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s upcoming book — which has already drawn criticism from audiences for withholding information that Trump intended to refuse to leave the White House after the 2020 election — it’s revealed that Trump apparently considered firing his daughter Ivanka and her husband de ella via Twitter.
“Meanwhile Eric and Don Jr. were like ‘Wait a minute, he follows you guys on Twitter?’” Fallon mocked.
