Before Fallon's Trump "took questions" Thursday night, he prefaced the conference by addressing the room: "First of all, you're all fake news, I hate you very much and thank you for being here", he said. "First question, 'No.' Next".

"One more shake, and this is going to make the ratings go through the roof", Fallon's Trump said while shaking his Magic 8-ball.

"And yet we've made so much progress", Trump replied.

The late night comedian mocked the hell out of Trump's press conference this week, one in which he attacked a Jewish reporter for asking a mean question and rambled on as he's been known to do. Taking a cue from his unforgettable predecessors, including hosts Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, Fallon carrys on the tradition that audiences know and love - kicking off every show with the iconic "Tonight Show" monologue. If you think it was like any other President's interaction with the media, wait till you watch this. "Fake news, fake news, big league, big leaks, bigly big leaks, China, all signs point to sad". We inherited a mess. Emmy Award- and Grammy Award-winning comedian Jimmy Fallon brings a high-tempo energy to the storied NBC franchise with his welcoming interview style, love of audience participation, spot-on impersonations and innovative sketches.

Fallon as Trump addressed the assembled press: "First of all you're all fake news".

Trump announced his new nominee for labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, during the news conference at the White House and also went on to talk about his new executive order that is expected next week. This is going to be a insane one.
