While his late night colleagues try to out woke each other with the wokest Donald Trump burn (I see you, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel), Jimmy Fallon for the most part stays out of politics. Yes, there was this cringeworthy clip of his writers taking a knee before Hillary Clinton. Hence, “for the most part.” However, during the election, he was the only late night host who gave our side actual equal treatment (see Watch Ted Cruz’s Hysterical Conversation with ‘Donald Trump’ and Carly Fiorina Sings About Her Dogs on Tonight Show).
To the dismay of the left, because everyone has to agree with them all the time. Jimmy Fallon’s response? That ain’t me.
“It’s just not what I do. I think it would be weird for me to start doing it now. I don’t really even care that much about politics —- I’ve got to be honest.”
Imagine that, an entertainer who is more concerned with entertaining than being political. It’s refreshing. A far cry from his colleagues.
Which isn’t to say WE won’t lump him in with his colleagues anyway, but that’s just because Owen Benjamin’s impersonation is hysterical.
