Jimmy Fallon, Trump Joke: 'Tonight Show' Host Jabs At President-Elect In Golden Globes Monologue [VIDEO]

Close

Jimmy Fallon targeted President-elect Donald Trump throughout his monologue at the Golden Globes Sunday night.

Meryl Streep wasn't the only person to criticize Trump at the Golden Globes last night. Fallon, who hosted the award show, started off his monologue by observing that the Globes are "one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote," a clear nod to Trump losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton.

Fallon also compared Trump to one of the most hated characters in all of fiction - Game of Thrones' King Joffrey.

"['Game of Thrones'] has so many plot twists and shocking twists, a lot of people have wondered what it would've been like if King Joffrey had lived. Well, in 12 days we're going to find out," he said.

The Tonight Show host also made reference to the Trump inauguration team and their inability to find A-list talent for the President-elect's big day.

"The film 'Florence Foster Jenkins' is nominated," Fallon stated. "The character has been dubbed the world's worst opera singer and even she turned down performing at Donald Trump's inauguration. It's tough to book."

Fallon's jokes were certainly more biting than when the host interviewed Trump back in September, when he famously tussled the President-elect's hair. This was seen as a friendly gesture and angered many, who saw this as Fallon "humanizing" Trump.

Regardless, very few could have remembered Fallon's comments about Trump by the end of the night, after Streep, the night's lifetime achievement award recipient, delivered a whopper of a speech about Trump's lack of ethics.

"There was one performance this year that stunned me - it sank its hooks in my heart," Streep said, of Trump. "Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth."

She continued: "It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter," referring to Trump's mocking of a differently abled New York Times reporter in 2015. "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life."
