"Can you imagine if Jimmy Fallon took a stand tonight?"

Donald Trump stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday to chat about Fallon's impression of him, Trump's hair and why he decided to go into politics. 

Fallon concluded their chat by asking if he could do one silly thing "now that we're both civilians" (since he could be president next time he appears on the show), asking to mess up Trump's hair — and, after pondering it for a moment, Trump agreed, so Fallon mussed Trump's hair with his hands. 

During their interview, Fallon told Trump, "Donald, this is getting real. … You still have time, do you still want to do this?"

"You say some shocking things," Fallon told him. Trump retorted: "But I'm trying not to anymore."

After the interview, the anti-Trump crowd on Twitter was not happy with the late-night host, criticizing him of being too soft on the candidate and acting as a "court jester" with a "potential dictator" on his show.
