Despite declining ratings, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon says viewers shouldn’t expect him to get overtly political because “people that voted for Trump watch my show as well.”
Fallon has been criticized for an interview he had with Donald Trump back in September, which some viewers say was too pleasant with the future president. He concluded the segment by messing up Trump’s infamous hairdo.
“They have a right to be mad,” Fallon said of the backlash. “If I let anyone down, it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it. I got it.”
“I’m a people pleaser,” he told The New York Times. “If there’s one bad thing on Twitter about me, it will make me upset. So, after this happened, I was devastated. I didn’t mean anything by it. I was just trying to have fun.”
