Tweeters and Reporters Alike Are Furious Fallon Treated Trump Too Sweetly

 

screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-11-30-22-amLast night, a very airy interview between Donald Trump and Jimmy Fallon aired. Fallon mussed Trump’s hair. They had a little chat. It had the lighthearted feel of a regular celebrity interview.

It didn’t go over well with what looks like a pretty hefty amount of people. The headlines this morning have ranged from hesitant statements on Fallon’s role as enabler to outright insults of his “softball” segment.

If people whose jobs require them to be critics were unkind, armchair pundits were downright nasty. “Jimmy Fallon” has been trending on Twitter for hours as he’s been name-checked repeatedly by people who believe he dropped the ball.

Another day, another batch of fury. 53 days to go.
