Not exactly known for his political humor, Jimmy Fallon got a helping hand from his guest Mike Myers on Wednesday night, who showed up as his iconic character Dr. Evil to announce his plans to run against Donald Trump in 2020.
As the Tonight Show host explained, Dr. Evil was the latest member of Trump’s Cabinet to be fired. Asked what he was doing in the White House, he responded, “Well, naturally I was going to be secretary of evil, but Steve Bannon got that job.”
Instead, he said he was “more of an ideas guy,” coming up with a plan to build a moat filled with “spiky blowfish” along the U.S.-Mexico border. “And I didn’t want the Mexicans to pay for it,” he said. “I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it.”
“All the most evil stuff was me,” he added. But when Fallon asked, “Even deporting DREAMers?” Dr. Evil replied, “No, Jimmy, even I have my limits. I’m evil, but I’m not a monster.”
Dr. Evil went on to call Donald Trump Jr. “creepy AF,” adding, “He looks like he’s missing a facial feature, you just don’t know which one.”
Finally, he announced his candidacy for president in 2020, pulling out a red “Make the World Evil Again” hat. “Plus, I found the perfect running mate, the only man who’s more hated right now than Donald Trump,” he said. “Evil/Zuckerberg 2020!”
