Bravo to the return of Dr Evil on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Turns out Austin Powers’ archnemesis (Mike Myers) was one of the cabinet members fired by President Donald Trump.
“Naturally, I was going to be Secretary of Evil, but [ex-White House Chief Strategist] Steve Bannon got that job,” he told Fallon. Evil claimed it was his idea to build a wall along the Mexican border. “But I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish,” he said. “And I didn’t want the Mexicans to pay for it — I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it.”
Elsewhere, Evil added that he was pals with Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson (“we were both evil doctors who did not know why they were there”) but was creeped out by Donald Trump Jr (“he looks like he’s missing a facial feature… you just don’t know which one.”
At the end of the interview, Evil announced his plans to run for POTUS in 2020. His running mate? Someone “even more hated than Donald Trump”: Mark Zuckerberg. “Hey, America, get ready to get poked!” Evil cheered. Holy mag-ma! Be careful what you wish for.
