We have obtained video of Ted Cruz having a phone conversation with Donald Trump. Well, by “Donald Trump” we mean Jimmy Fallon pretending that he’s Donald Trump… They talked about Colorado, immigration, ObamaCare, a Hillary Clinton. Enjoy:
Cruz clearly seemed very disinterested in all the advice Trump was giving him. Trump confronted him on supposedly stealing Colorado. Cruz patiently explained the system, and Trump suggested that maybe “the people were so high they completely forgot” to vote. Cruz also told ‘Trump’ that he was watching his favorite movie Princess Bride, that he mentioned during a CNN family town hall this week, for the ‘843rd time’.
At the start of the sketch, ‘Trump’ calls Cruz in order to discuss Thursday night’s Democratic Debate in Brooklyn, and attack the performance of Hillary Clinton.
Fallon, reviving the Trump impression that he once did alongside The Donald, accuses Clinton of ‘going back and forth’ on key issues, comparing it to her trying to use a Metrocard on the subway.
This is my favorite part…
‘Trump’ replies: ‘Oh I’m the bigger man with the bigger hands, and the bigger….You can’t see me but I am pointing at my Trump Tower.’
‘I’m really glad not to be on FaceTime right now,’ Cruz responds.
I suppose we’re in the part of the election where the personal side of the candidates are coming out. Even though Cruz is still Ted Cruz here, it’s good to see him loosen up just a tad.
Though, Jimmy Fallon’s “Trump” could use some work…
