Jimmy Fallon used Monday's Tonight Show monologue to clear the air about a certain, ahem, tussle he had with President Donald Trump over the weekend.

Meanwhile, at a rally in SC on Monday night, Trump was still talking about Fallon and ratings.

Mr Trump said Fallon was "taking heat" over the incident as he had privately called him, lauding the episode's "monster ratings".

How do you know what the United States of America is doing?

"A guy with potential. and I always got higher ratings than anyone else". Killed everybody, right? He should be thankful. "He shouldn't be upset or angry", Trump continued. He apologized for humanizing me. "And he really hurt himself".

Late night host Jimmy Fallon received sharp criticism from the left for his September 16, 2016 interview with then candidate Trump.

Late-night comics like Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Bill Maher have all generated controversy, to varying degrees, by being blunt and outspoken about the Trump administration.

Still, in a June 2016 interview with CNN before the Trump-Fallon controversy, Leno conceded that he would have found it hard adhering to that ideal in the current political climate, citing issues like gay rights and school shootings.

Fallon responded that announcing that he had donated to a Texas non-profit, RAICES, which helps immigrant parents separated from their children at the border.

"I mean, honestly, are these people amusing?" Frankly, if I couldn't I'd be in big trouble. But they have no talent. Some restaurants won't serve them, people on dating sites prejudge them before even giving them a chance, and every time they step outside, they're made to feel like they don't even belong here. "Johnny Carson was talented". "I don't have his number, I don't want his number", he said, according to CNN. He's standing out on Hollywood Boulevard, he's standing there opening the door going, ohhh.

Earlier in Trump's Columbia, South Carolina, speech, he also talked about filmmaker David Lynch who was recently in the news for saying that Trump "could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history". "A guy with potential". Adding that he "made a mistake" and that he "looking back, I would do it differently".
