Want to know Donald Trump‘s real thoughts about Osama bin Laden‘s death? Ask Jimmy Fallon. The comedian is known for his spot-on impersonations and decided to take on the mogul in a hilarious skit for his show Late Night!
While Donald already offered his congratulatory sentiments to President Obama and the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Jimmy knew exactly what the billionaire really wanted to say about Sunday night’s presidential announcement that cut off the end of The Celebrity Apprentice.
“President Obama is so scared of me and so desperate for attention that he felt the need to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden right in the middle of my show,” Jimmy said, in character as the Donald in front of a faux presidential backdrop during Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Monday night. “Classic Obama move.”
“The president clearly coordinated this secret C.I.A. mission, assassination, and ensuing press conference specifically to cut off the end of my show, The Celebrity Apprentice,” he added. “So basically, I killed Osama bin Laden. So congratulations to me, Donald Trump.”
Donald, who has been pushing the president for weeks about the validity of his birth certificate, has been the target of many public jokes recently, pinpointed by the Obama and SNL funnyman Seth Meyers at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend.
The mogul took the quips with a smile and turned to his Twitter feed after Obama’s union address confirming the death of bin Laden to thank the head of state for his leadership.
“I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the armed forces for a job very well done. I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the American flag in celebration of this great victory,” he Tweeted, adding, “We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for our freedom. God Bless America.”
We have to admit, Jimmy’s interpretation of bin Laden’s death as “The Donald” is very entertaining!
