The Hill reports:
Over the course of four minutes, Fallon compared Trump to the menacing and murderous King Joffrey from “Game of Thrones,” joked about Trump’s difficulty finding inauguration performers and said the ceremony, unlike the U.S. electoral system, still valued the popular vote.
“This is the Golden Globes: One of the few places left where America honors the popular vote,” Fallon said.
Fallon then compared Trump to Joffrey, who was killed previously on the show and was known as one of its most villainous characters.
“[Game of Thrones] has so many plot twists and shocking moments, a lot of people are wondering what it would be like if King Joffery had lived. Well, in 12 days we’re going to find out,” Fallon said.
Fallon also joked that the results of the award show “were carefully tabulated by the accounting firm Ernst and Young and Putin.”
Fallon also pointed to the Meryl Streep film “Florence Foster Jenkins,” a biographical comedy about a terrible opera singer.
“The character has been dubbed the world’s worst opera singer, and even she turned down singing at Donald Trump’s inauguration,” he joked.
Fallon made headlines last year when he invited Trump on his late night talk show and asked to tussle his famous hair.
