Watch Jimmy Fallon making a James Taylor parody inspired in Trump administration

Jimmy Fallon made a parody with James Taylor’s 1970 classic “Fire and Rain”, transforming the tune into a critic to Donald Trump’s administration. The song was called “Fire and Fury,” after Michael Wolff’s controversial new book about President Donald Trump and his administration.

The parody also covered Steve Bannon’s downfall, the campaign’s shock that Trump actually won and the President’s erratic Twitter, television and dietary habits.

“He’s had a light snack of six Big Macs while he’s watching three TVs,” Fallon sang. “He’s turned the White House into a total shithole.” Fallon closed “Fire and Fury” with a plea for Robert Mueller to “friggin hurry” and his predictions for 2020: “And this time I’ll be the one who calls Putin/ Because in 2020, Oprah – Oprah’s gonna win.”
