Late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon ripped into Donald Trump on Wednesday over a tweet the president sent boasting he revieved a standing ovationfrom Senate Republicans this week on Capitol Hill. Fallon has notoriously been hesitant to join the chorus of comedians blasting Trump, saying earlier this month that Trump news is "often too serious" to joke about.

“Trump was tweeting again today. He said that his big meeting with GOP senators was a love fest, with multiple standing ovations,” Fallon joked during his monologue on “The Tonight Show.” “Yep, they were mostly people getting up to leave, but still, that counts, as standing ovation.”

“So nice being with Republican Senators today. Multiple standing ovations! Most are great people who want big Tax Cuts and success for U.S.,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
