Jay Leno Makes Surprise Late Night Appearance to Talk Sexual Harassment and Take Shots at Trump

Jay Leno made a return to late night on Wednesday, making a surprise appearance on the Tonight Show to talk about the wave of sexual harassment allegations that has roiled the entertainment industry since his retirement.

After Jimmy Fallon feigned a leg sprain, he invited Leno on-stage to tap in.

“Sexual harassment is a big issue, people are finally taking it seriously,” Leno opened. “And a lot of really talented and really accomplished actors have been accused of sexual harassment.”

“Also Steven Seagal.”

After taking a swipe at Kevin Spacey, joking the actor is now his “Uber driver,” Leno ran through the litany of accused, from Charlie Rose to Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein.

“How about Charlie Rose, walking around naked in front of interns. When did newsmen start behaving like this? I don’t remember Walter Cronkite prancing around in front of Margaret Thatcher like, ‘Take a look at this, Margret.'”

“Luckily, those are just media types and Hollywood people. Can you imagine what our country would be like if the president of the United States acted like that?” Leno quipped.

“As you know, President Trump allegedly paid a porn star $130,000 to cover up their affair. If that turns out to be true, it will be the first time trump has fully compensated somebody for all the work they did.”
