Jimmy Fallon on Donald Trump’s Hair: It Felt Like the ‘Grass in Easter Baskets'

“Extra’s” Mario Lopez caught up with Jimmy Fallon on the Emmys red carpet, where he asked the late-night host about Donald Trump’s recent visit.

“When you messed up Trump's hair, that was the best; it looked like cotton candy afterwards,” Mario said.

Fallon replied, “It felt like — you know the grass in Easter baskets? It just kept coming and coming out.”

He added, "He told me five minutes before we went on to do it. I said, ‘Is he going to do it?' They said, ‘Yes, but don't mess it up too much because he has to go on to New Hampshire.' I was like, 'Okay,' and then I was like, 'I should go ahead and get in there and give it one final zhuzh.'"

Fallon sat down with Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton, on Friday for Monday's episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." He explained why it will be a different interview from the one he did with Trump, saying, “You're talking about first lady, Secretary of State, senator — she’s done it, you can’t be like, 'Want to play beer pong?' That’s not gonna happen... Get out there and vote everybody, that’s the whole important thing, you get to see a different side of the politicians.”

Fallon also gushed over his daughters, Frances and Winnie, saying, “They’re fantastic,” and that they hit the pumpkin patch before he left for L.A.. ”They’re having a big party for Daddy when I get home and I can’t wait to see them.” His girls are ready for Halloween already! “They’re going to be butterflies.”
