It's gonna be yugely.

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. So what does he do now? If you take it from Jimmy Fallon, he probably went and rubbed it in President Obama’s face a whole lot.

Like many American politicians, Obama can’t believe this is happening. (No, really, he can’t.) So, in between some gentle ribbing at Trump’s choice of vocabulary, some Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders swipes (Fallon’s recurring impression is quickly becoming less of a performance and more of a reenactment of what happened on a particularly busy day), and Trump’s dismissal of a 700-foot wall as being too small, Obama tries to give the presumptive nominee some advice for what to do if he makes it to the White House.

Also, you probably can’t spoil Obama on Game of Thrones. He likely knew about the big twist beforehand with those handy screeners, and hey, he could’ve easily spoiled us during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last week, but he didn’t. That’s some presidential restraint.
