Comedian Jimmy Fallon portrayed real estate powerhouse Donald Trump again in a Monday “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” sketch comedy act. Speaking in a distinguished New York accent, Fallon poked fun at Trump’s self-congratulatory tendencies.

Posing as the “Celebrity Apprentice” host, Fallon took credit for Osama bin Laden’s killing.

“As you all know, something hugely important and gravely serious happened last night. That’s right. The last 16 minutes of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ were interrupted by President Obama,” faux Trump said. “People were forced to watch President Obama inform the nation that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is dead. I don’t know about you, but to me the message is clear. President Obama is so scared of me and so desperate for attention that he felt the need to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden right in the middle of my show. Classic Obama move.

“So basically, I killed Osama bin Laden,” fake Trump said at the end of the segment.

Fallon’s version of Trump complained that “Celebrity Apprentice” should have been spared the unexpected cut-off and that a less popular program should have been affected by the big news.

“Mr. President, you mean to tell me that of all the times you could have picked to bring the most wanted man in the world to justice, you had to do it during one of the most exciting board rooms in the history of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’?…Why couldn’t you have interrupted a low rated NBC show like ‘America’s Next Great Restaurant,’ or ‘Chuck,’ or ‘The Event,’ or ‘Perfect Couples,’ or ‘Outsourced,’ or ‘Friday Night’…basically any other show on NBC,” Fallon as Trump said.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great news that Osama in Laden is dead…But couldn’t you have waited fifteen more minutes? That way you could have interrupted, let’s see what comes on after the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ (shuffles paperwork), oh yeah, the news! Then you could have waited to announce this news…during the news. The fact is, the president clearly coordinated this secret CIA mission assassination and ensuing press conference specifically to cut off the end of my show…So basically, I killed Osama bin Laden, so congratulations to me, Donald Trump…You’re welcome…God bless Donald Trump.”
