All over social media liberals are enraged over the republican presidential nominees perceived likability after his NBC The Tonight Show appearance on Thursday. He partook in a two part interview with host of the night Jimmy Fallon where he encouraged young Americans to work to become President in order to help people.
He noted that having a positive relationship with superpowers such as Russia is incredibly important as well as a good thing. People are saying the interview went extraordinarily well. Trump received a lot of cheer and applause during the segment. However, Fallon was slammed on social media by liberals who felt that he was giving legitimacy to the nominees campaign and doing a disservice by humanizing a demagogue.

Fallon asked Trump if he could play with his hair for which he got a lot of enthusiasm from the audience. The video of him messing with it went viral and has been viewed millions of times. Since their was nothing of substance to complain about liberals went to Twitter to express their disgust over Trump’s “personable” appearance.

Jimmy Fallon to Satan: (cute smile) can I see if your horns are as sharp as they look?!

FALLON: what I'm really curious about: why is the mustache so small?
HITLER: ah Jimmy, ha ha
FALLON: it's like a little caterpillar! ha ha

In his defense, Jimmy Fallon just pulled in a 35 share among white supremacists 18-49.

It really humanized Hitler when Jimmy Fallon mussed up his mustache.

"Wow, Donald Trump went on Jimmy Fallon, acted cute, & let Jimmy mess up his hair! I guess that erases the years of Trump's hate speech!"

I don't fault Jimmy Fallon for not being a journalist. I do fault him for his willingness to serve as hell's court jester.

On September 19th Hillary Clinton will be appearing on his show too.
Watch some more clips of his appearance here,
In all fairness, Jimmy Fallon was in an untenable situation. If he refuses to bring Donald Trump on his show he might be labeled as biased by the Trump campaign or conservatives for being willing to bring on liberals but not conservatives. If he does bring him on he gets flack for humanizing Trump whose long been labeled a xenophobe. It’s a lose lose situation for him.
