RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
FALLON: "The big story today was that Congress had just one day left to prevent a government shutdown. But don’t worry, it will only affect nonessential government employees like park rangers, museum guides, and the president. So that will be fine. I guess Congress had 24 hours to pass a short-term spending bill if they want to avoid a a shutdown. Trump told them to do their jobs, then went back to announcing the winners of a made-up awards show. Did you see this? Last night trump tweeted a link to his fake news awards page. But for a while, it wouldn’t load. His I.T. Guy was like — “Sorry, my trolls can only build so fast. I’ll get back to working on this thing. Heh heh heh.” Trump named the “New York Times,” ABC News and CNN as the top three reporters of fake news. His top three reporters of real news were Fox News, his magic 8-ball and snapple caps."
