Jimmy Fallon: Robert Mueller’s Comin’ To Town [VIDEO]

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon channeled Bruce Springsteen on Monday night to address the recent guilty plea by Michael Flynn to lying under oath to the FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian investigation.

Sporting mirrored shades, a red bandana, and no sleeves, Fallon sang a festive, politically-charged version of Springtsteen’s “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” entitled “Robert Mueller’s Comin’ to Town.”

“It’s all cold down along D.C., wind’s whipping round the White House,” Fallon said in his best Springsteen growl. “You guys all been good this year? Jared, you been good? Everybody in the Trump Administration been good, or what? That’s not many, not many – you guys are in trouble out here…”

    I know we have to laugh to keep from crying but with so much bad news of late, when will something good happen for the country?

    • netxtown

      As long as we continue to laugh it off – nothing good will happen for the country. Rethgus operate on “if they’re laughing, we can take more”

      • Boreal

        I am close to a breaking point in my coping abilities.

        • Christopher

          Me too!

          That’s why I’ve decided to embrace insanity.

          I’m having way more fun now!

            When nothing matters at all, when there are no societal or political norms, when there’s no compassion or sense of responsibility to your fellow humans then it’s easy to stop worrying and love the Trump.

        • PickyPecker

          I have compartmentalized the entire dRUMPf horror show and look at it for what it is – temporary insantiy.
          I remember there are indeed good people in our country doing good things.
          I do what little I can to aid the ‘good fight’ and recognize that there IS only so much I can do.
          While I cannot change the world (or the horror show in play), I know that if I see things as ‘there is just nothing I can do at all.’ I wiill fall into needless despair and sadness.
          Immerse yourself around those people you find positive; shed those who are not; get as many hugs a day as you can; and know that everything can change on a dime. XO

            I only deal with Trumpian news here and at Slate.

            I no longer watch any news shows or topical comedy shows.

      • boatboy_srq

        That’s because Rethug humour is entirely composed of malicious amusement at others’ misfortunes, so they misunderstand humour in general. It won’t be so funny to them when it’s their own misfortune.

      • skyweaver

        For me (this is only for me) it strengthens my resolve to fight it as I laugh at it.

    • DreadPikathulhu

      It’s such a huge change from two years ago, when we were celebrating victories here at JMG and I was feeling so positive about the future. Now it is just endless despair.

      • Boreal

        I’m having a hard time doing my work and keeping up with basic life chores.

        • netxtown

          oh hell. I have been completely unmotivated to work on any of the projects around here. I always come back to ‘what for?’ – and when the tomorrow I see looks like a shitty scene from a movie…well, what for?

        • DreadPikathulhu

          Yup. I’m working mostly at home now and it’s almost impossible to focus on anything but the latest horror in the news.

          • netxtown

            we are damned for staying tuned, and damned if we tune it out. It’s what donnie wanted…and he’s got us right where he wants us.

            It is all eyes on donnie…with a quick glance at Mueller between blinks.

          • DreadPikathulhu

            The bright spot is that I’m watching my mother, almost 80 and in now deep red Michigan, become totally enraged and engaged. She’s heavily involved in local organizing now and the media doesn’t report on it because none of the people working behind the scenes are aggrieved white males. There is hope.

      • another_steve

        My sleep has been affected. I’m a “nighttime processor;” in bed, in a quiet dark room, my mind spins. Difficult for me to turn it off and fall asleep.

        These are scary times.

      Danica Roem, a transgender woman and Virginia House Of Delegates candidate, unseated virulent homophobe Robert Marshall. He held the seat for 23 years and he was the man who wrote Virginia’s anti marriage equality constitutional amendment and the anti trans bathroom bill. That brightened my day.

      • Boreal

        While that is a bright spot, it doesn’t alleviate my anxiety about the daily horrorshow we are living through.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    JImmy got the message that his white bread and mayo form of hosting is not cutting it in this dark age. His show is tantamount to spending an hour in a first grade classroom with his silly tricks and stunts. While I wish him well with this alcohol problem, Kimmel and Colbert are in the forefront of the resistance and are both entertaining and informative.

    • greenmanTN

      He’s my least favorite late night host. He won’t shut up and let his guests talk, he laughs at himself way too much, and his commentary is as sharp as a Nerf ball.

      • netxtown

        He’s a cheerleader…

        The show is “safe” for Republicans to watch. Republicans don’t get satire but they’ll understand Jimmy’s lame skits.

    • another_steve

      I’ve never envied Fallon. He’s attempted to follow in the footsteps of two of the all-time greats of late-nite TV – Johnny Carson and Jay Leno.

      That’s like my 7-year-old finger-painting great-nephew attempting to follow in the footsteps of Michelangelo.

    • Natty Enquirer

      This is The Tonight Show we’re talking about. Late night pabulum. Fallon looks like a brilliant satirist next to Carson.

      • crewman

        Times change. Andy Capp, Hagar the Horrible, and Family Circus aren’t popular any more either. The White House is occupied by an illegitimate president doing more damage to this country than any in my lifetime. In the zeitgest of today people are turning to comedy more to make sense of the world than to escape it. But “pabulum” is a great word. 🙂

    • gaycuckhubby

      Every now and again his comedy writers put out a good skit. Like the one above. But in general he’s just awful

    • Kruhn

      Kimmel has actually matured as a comedian. He used to be an overgrown frat boy in his Comedy Central years.

    Let the triggered Russian YouTube bots begin the postings.

    It really is something how well Fallon can pull off Springsteen.

    • Reality.Bites

      If we have to see someone pull off Springsteen maybe Bruce should decide who the lucky guy is.

    Vegas called and wants to know when you can start, Jimmy.

    • pj

      so gross

    • Kruhn

      I’m surprised the Trump Hair Monster didn’t bite his hand off.

    • Guess?

      Yeah, I didn’t care to watch any Fallon after that little segment. Still don’t.

    • Gerry Fisher

      That’s it, Jimmy. Do your best to turn the malignant narcissist into a cuddle bear.

  • Tom Furgas

    Spot on, Jimmy.

  • gaycuckhubby

    it’s like the heterosexual Randy Rainbow

  • Reality.Bites

    I was going to post the Glee version, but it was sung by Cory, which is sad, and Mark, which is gross, so instead, one of Kurt and Blaine’s Christmas duets.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI5HsumHFzg

    May no child ever grow up again in a world without high school boys flirting at Christmas.

    Or just because it’s Friday

    • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

      It’s fun, but IMHO Margaret Whiting is the definitive version. (and “maybe just a cigarette more…” is missing from this version…I was wondering how they were going to handle that socially unacceptable practice now)

      • Reality.Bites

        Well songs on Glee were almost always cut down from the full version. The audio recording they released does contain the line, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some song covered by Glee did contain a reference to smoking.

        Since the song was being sung on the show in the context of Kurt helping Blaine rehearse for a performance, there wouldn’t be a need for the actions described in the song to be acceptable.

        A literal interpretation of the words would have cost us Run Joey, Run!

  • olandp

    Is he still a thing?

  • Bj Lincoln

    The man does have talent. The Boss would be impressed.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Well now, it would appear Jimmy has decided to stop sitting on the fence….better late than never.

  • Texndoc

    Last I was reading his ratings were embarrassing and for the first time in ages the Tonight Show was snubbed at the Emmys.

  • Pluto Animus

    Back when he first became popular, people would sometimes tell me they thought Jimmy Fallon was funny.

    I would wonder what could have caused such devastating damage to their brains.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Is this the same Jimmy Fallon who fawned all over Trump in appearances during the campaign?

  • Blobby

    fuck i hate Fallon.

    Remember Gilda Radner’s little girl character Judy Miller? She jumped around her room, sang and acted and only amused herself That is Fallon. They just actually gave him a fucking camera.
