Fallon to Trump: 'Why are you tweeting at me?'

President Donald Trump reignited a fight with late-night host Jimmy Fallon on Monday at a rally in South Carolina

Earlier this week, he hit back at the president's "be a man" tweet, which came after Fallon said he regretted the pre-election interview from 2016 when he tousled Trump's hair.

Fallon spent part of his monologue recapping what happened on Twitter, noting to Melania Trump that her anti-bullying campaign wasn't really working.

Fallon briefly acknowledged the feud during his Monday monologue, saying Trump should "have more important things to do" other than tweeting at him. "Then I thought, 'Wait, shouldn't he have more important things to do?' He's the president of the-what are you doing?"

The president also went on to say that Jimmy Kimmel used to wait outside his studio to open Trump's vehicle door for him.

Trump doubled down on his criticism of Fallon for the recent Hollywood Reporter podcast interview in which Fallon apologized for "humanizing" the president almost two years ago.

Fallon told The Hollywood Reporter last week that he gets why fans are mad at him: "I heard you".

Trump claimed Fallon had, in fact, called him and mentioned "monster ratings".

"The guy on CBS is - what a low life", Trump said, adding: "I mean, this guy on CBS has no talent". "He's a reality star on NBC, he's been on our show 10 times, and we've always asked him, he said, 'No thanks'". I agree. 'Do whatever you want with my hair. "[And] I've never said 'monster ratings.' I don't know what he's talking about". "I have to get over it and move on, and that's my job", Fallon told the audience. Despite his defensive posture, Trump must have noticed a headline somewhere about Fallon apologizing, because he tweeted at Fallon to "be a man Jimmy!". The awkward segment had faded into the background, but it's back in the headlines again and Fallon used the current Twitter war as a base for his monologue Monday night. "When Trump heard, he was like, "I love RAICES - they're my favorite peanut butter cup". I'm paid to make people laugh.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted at Fallon to stop "whimpering" about it.

More than any other host in late-night, Jimmy Fallon generally tries to keep "The Tonight Show" out of the political fray.

In his post-Super Bowl episode last February, Fallon updated Bob Dylan's iconic The Times, They Are a Changin to critique Mr Trump.
