WATCH: Jimmy Fallon Mocks Trump's Lack of Support From Actual Politicians at the Convention

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon, host of "The Tonight Show," delivered a surprise speech as Donald Trump in which the Republican nominee appears totally oblivious to the fact that having more support from C-List celebrities, as opposed to actual politicians, may not be a good thing.


"How great was Scott Baio," Jimmy Fallon as Trump asked, wearing orange face makeup and a blond wig. "Wasn't his speech great? Wasn't it fantastically huge? I loved it so much, I'm going to put 'Charles in Charge,' of the nuclear launch codes." As Fallon, points out, Baio hasn't actually been seen or heard from much since the 1980s show was popular.

"Last night, you heard from Antonio Sabato, Jr., from 'General Hospital,' tonight you heard from Kimberlin Brown, from 'The Young and the Restless, which is interesting, because for the rest of the week, you'll be hearing from all my children," Fallon as Trump said. 

Four of five of Donald Trump's children are speaking at the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump. Shockingly, the two who have spoken so far, Tiffany and Donald, Jr. have said nice things about their father.

"Let's also hear it for my great running mate, what's-his-face," Fallon said, mocking Trump's fairly dismissive attitude towards his vice presidential pick, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

"We did a great interview on '60 Minutes,' or as it's now known, 59 minutes of me and one minute of him wondering, 'what the hell have I done," remarked Fallon.
