When Fuller House hits Netflix on February 26, one familiar face (well, technically, two) will be missing: Michelle Tanner. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s heartbreaking decision not to return for the revival series has been well-documented on the Internet, as has the network’s attempt to find a familial replacement. So, they’re trying something new.
Welcome to the Tanner family, Donald Trump!
OK, so maybe the series didn’t replace Michelle with the Donald, but thanks to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, we now know what that warped reality would look like. The cast of Full House made a surprising appearance during Fallon’s late-night show Tuesday night to talk some sense into Mr. Trump.
Dressed up as presidential hopeful Donald Trump, Fallon sits in Michelle’s bed (how rude!) on a exact replica of the iconic Full House set. There, the Full House cast visits baby Donald to help ease his fears about the future of his campaign.
The skit is obviously packed with Full House catchphrases and Trump jabs, including lines alluding to his controversial comments on immigrants, his campaign slogan “Make American Great Again,” and some signature fatherly advice from Danny Tanner — “Remember, Donald, if you win and become president, that’s great, but if you lose and don’t become president, we’ll be even prouder.”
But perhaps the best moment belongs to Andrea Barber, who makes quite an entertaining entrance. Oh, that and that sappy moment when the entire cast starts to sing the Full House theme song. Prepare to elicit some sort of strong emotion.
