Watch Jimmy Fallon Mock Donald Trump’s Second-Place Iowa Finish

“One plus one is two, so basically, I won twice,” host’s “Trump” says

Jimmy Fallon is the latest late-night host to tease Donald Trump after the mogul’s surprising second-place finish at the Iowa caucuses. A night after Stephen Colbert joked about Trump’s humility after falling short to Ted Cruz, Fallon delivered a Trump impression oozing with all the braggadocio voters have come to expect from the one-time GOP frontrunner.

“I’m here tonight because the people of Iowa have wisely named me the winner and champion of second place,” Fallon’s Trump says at a press conference. “It’s just like children say: ‘First is the worst, second is the best, third is the one with the hairy chest.’ Marco Rubio, get that taken care of. You wouldn’t want your hair to make you look ridiculous.”

“Trump” then lists all the ways two is better than one: R2-D2, the twin contestants on The Bachelor (“Four boobs!”) and Toy Story 2 (“Clearly the superior movie”). “I’m proud to be in second,” “Trump” added. “For now on, when you think Donald Trump, I want you to think yuge number two. So watch out New Hampshire, because the deuce is loose.”
