Watch Jimmy Fallon dressed as Donald Trump ‘interview’ Ted Cruz

It was the Texas senator’s first appearance on The Tonight Show.


Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz took a phone call from a Donald Trump-disguised Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show.

Fallon donned a wispy wig and that iconic “yuuuge” voice and offered to do a “pre-interview” with Cruz to help the Texas senator prep for his first-ever Tonight Show appearance.

“That’s a very generous offer, Donald,” Cruz said. “I appreciate you being the bigger man.”

“Oh, I’m the bigger man,” Fallon-as-Trump replied. “With the bigger hands.”

As the interview went on, however, the Trump attitude proved a bit too much for Cruz, driving him to drink. When Fallon-as-Trump asked if Cruz was writing all his advice down, Cruz paused to “get his pen,” put down his phone, and reached for a bottle.
