Twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is convinced he will be arrested on Tuesday, and while he may call it a “witch hunt” among other things, Jimmy Fallon believes there could be at least one aspect of Trump’s detention. enjoy.
During his Monday night monologue, Fallon joked that Trump actually deserves credit for his Pravda social media post in which he announced his arrest on Saturday, saying “it’s not often that everyone sends ‘Save the Date’ for their own arrest.” Of course, it’s worth noting that Trump’s statement has not been officially confirmed by the authorities, or even by anyone on his own team.
In a post on Saturday, Trump wrote that “REMOTE LEADING CANDIDATE OF THE REPUBLIC AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY NEXT WEEK.”
“Firstly, he at least finally admitted that he former president,” Fallon joked. “This is progress. Progress! baby steps.”
Looking at the actual arrest process, Fallon added that given the scenario that led to the charges he could be charged on, Trump would enjoy being searched.
“Trump is not thrilled about being arrested, fingerprinted or asked for bail. But he’s glad to be searched,” Fallon said. “Yes, the police will say, ‘You have the right to remain silent … now, but also in general. Just think about it! Just something to think about.'”
However, The Tonight Show host also claimed that there are easier ways for the authorities to get what they want.
“You know, if they want Trump’s fingerprints, they could just look at the Cheeto dust on his Diet Coke cans,” he scoffed.
