“James Thomas Fallon, my god, your name screams diversity,” Short began. And after a few jokes at his own expense, he proceeded to dig into the host. “Now I haven’t seen you since the great Saudi golf tournament,” he said. “Who knew you and the crown prince were such friends?! The giggles and the giggles.”

As Fallon struggled to keep it together, Short added: “Tell everyone what you told me about the Proud Boys being so much more than a club. What did you mean by that?”

From there it went on to other destinations. “Do I regret my ‘Kim and Pete Forever’ tattoo? Sure,” Short said, before recounting what it was like being in Mar-a-Lago when the FBI crackdown struck.

“I don’t love Trump’s politics, but I love his omelette station,” he joked. “And that’s so great, because as a member, you can just read as many classified documents as you want.” Short then joked that he used to babysit Eric and Donald Trump Jr., but when they played Monopoly, “is their version of that Winner’s first person to say ‘Bankrupt!’ cries.”
