Donald Trump got his feelings hurt when Jimmy Fallon recently was asked about his infamous Donald Trump hair tussle on the Tonight Show (an incident that occurred almost two years ago). Fallon said that the hair muss was a mistake that he wishes he could take back.  Fallon made the remark on a podcast called Awards Chatter hosted by The Hollywood Reporter.  Jimmy expressed feeling stressed by what he called a gang mentality response to the hair moment, and said he wishes people would consider his entire career instead of focusing on that moment.

Trump tweeted his reaction to the podcast, calling Fallon’s reaction “whimpering” and told the Tonight Show host to be a man.  “Jimmy Fallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have “humanized” me-he is taking heat. He called & said “monster ratings.” Be a man Jimmy!”

UPDATE: Well Jimmy Fallon took Trump’s advice and manned up. “In honor of the President’s tweet I’ll be making a donation to RAICES in his name,” Fallon tweeted in response to the President’s challenge.  Fallon is the latest in a line of celebrities to donate to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, in response to Trump’s Immigration policties.
