The Tonight Show's Fallon and Patriot Act's Minhaj compared jobs and controversies for a conversation hosted by Variety. When Minhaj told Fallon he and Stephen Colbert are on a max contract, Fallon responded: "But you’ve already gotten the death threat. You’re on death threat level. I’ve done that already. I’m on the level after death threat." Minhaj responded: "How do you do comedy when you’re getting death threats? So many people have told me, 'Oh man, you’re so brave for what you’ve done — as long as you don’t die. This is the best thing that could have happened to your career.' I’m like, 'Dude I’m not trying to be comedy’s Tupac. I’m not trying to just die for these jokes. I want to live to see these retweets.'" Fallon responded by recalling his Trump hair-touching controversy: "I look back on (the Trump controversy) and go — please. Doing what I’m doing, I’ve learned from my lesson. People have learned from what they’ve said about me: They’ve learned who I really am. Some people have changed their mind and said, 'Oh gosh that was a little harsh. I shouldn’t have gone on a rant of 30 tweets saying ‘F*ck you.'" ALSO: Fallon finds the 2020 Democrats "a breath of fresh air" for late-night comedy.
