- Mike Myers returned to his Dr. Evil character from the “Austin Powers” movies on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday to make fun of White House turnover.
- In the interview, Dr. Evil said he had just been fired by President Trump, and that the most “evil” ideas, like the border wall, were his.
- Dr. Evil said he got along with Ben Carson because “they were both doctors who didn’t know why they were there.”
Mike Myers appeared on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” Wednesday night, as his Dr. Evil character from the “Austin Powers” movies, to take some jabs at Trump.
Myers (as Dr. Evil) poked fun at the White House for its rapid turnover. In the interview, Dr. Evil said he’d just been fired by President Trump.
When Fallon asked him what he did at the White House, Dr. Evil replied, “Well, I was going to be Secretary of Evil … but Steve Bannon got that job.”
“I was more of an ideas guy, really,” he continued, and said that the border wall was his idea – but he wanted it to be a “moat filled with spiky blow fish” paid for by Alec Baldwin.
“All of the most evil stuff was me,” Dr. Evil said, including the “space force” Trump recently suggested.
But even Dr. Evil has his limits, and ending DACA is where he drew the line, he said.
“I may be evil but I’m not a monster,” he told Fallon.
Dr. Evil said he got along with Ben Carson, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, because they were “both doctors who didn’t know why they were there.”
He also described Donald Trump, Jr. as creepy – “he looks like he’s missing a facial feature, you just don’t know which one.”
Now that Dr. Evil is out of the White House, he said he’ll be promoting a new book: “Fire and Fury and Also Evil and More Fire and Also Magma Too” – a spoof on the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” by Michael Wolff.
Finally, Dr. Evil said he’s running for president, and that he’s found the perfect running mate that people hate more than him: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
