President Trump is once again making a big show out of selecting a nominee for the Supreme Court — only this time he's on a tight deadline, an already historically deadly viral pandemic is getting worse again, the economy is on the rocks, and a very consequential election is just over 40 days away. Jimmy Fallon captured all that in a Tonight Show skit Tuesday night, where he dressed up in his Trump costume and turned the discernment process into a literal game show, So You Want to Be A Supreme Court Justice. His criteria included pointedly unspecified "values," looks, and, of course, distraction.
"Join my search for the next Supreme Court justice, and, you know, forget about anything else going on — none of which is my fault," Fallon's Trump said. Watch below.
