Fallon's Trump wants Obama's middle school hall pass

April 29, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

Jimmy Fallon last night broke out his Donald Trump impression -- and demanded additional documents from President Barack Obama. 

Fallon's Trump wants to the president to release: 

• His driver's license. ("Has anyone ever seen it?") 

• His Starbucks card. 

• His Netflix queue ("I've got one and I'm not afraid to let people see it. It's a fantastic, beautiful queue.") 

• His hall passes from middle school. 

This would be funny if it wasn't so true -- and that just makes it sad. Trump's harping on Obama to release various documents (from his long-form birth certificate to his college grades) is now nothing more than a laughingstock. He's quickly changing his public persona from that of a successful businessman to a clown (or a "carnival barker" as Obama said). 

Fallon ended with a phrase that aptly summed up Trump's facts-free approach to political discourse: "I'm Donald Trump: Prove me wrong."
