Former President and Vice-President of the United States, Donald Trump and Mike Pence are now rival. While both are eyeing the next 2024 elections, they held meetings in Arizona on Friday July 22.
Former Vice President Mike Pence revealed the title of his upcoming memoir this week - but Jimmy Fallon and his "Tonight Show" crew have some thoughts at what the other options were.
Pence's book, set to come out in November, is called "So Help Me God" and makes him just the latest Trump lackey to come out with a book following his time in the administration. Like we said, though, Fallon was pretty confident there were other titles in the running. In fact, he teased the audience during his monologue with the idea that his show had obtained a list of other possibilities.
But as Fallon was about to start the bit, Tariq Trotter jumped in to give him a hard time, mocking the predictability of it.

The two forwards actually arrived in Chicago the same way, through a trade with the Florida Panthers in 2021 that saw Lucas Wallmark and Lucas Carlsson go the other way. While Riley Stillman remains from that deal, it was Borgstrom that was considered a big part of the return, having been a first-round pick by the Panthers in 2016. After just 52 games with Chicago he’ll hit the market as an unrestricted free agent, an interesting addition just before things open up on Wednesday.
"Oh here we go," Trotter bemoaned. "Let me guess, you're gonna list a bunch of fake Mike Pence memoir titles. Mhm, mhm, and then a little graphic is going to pop up for each one, so that the audience can read the title and then 'laugh' about it."
When Fallon confirmed that that was exactly what was about to happen, Trotter groaned that he knew "exactly how this is going to go down" - and subsequently took over the bit for Fallon.
First, Trotter went for the obvious puns on existing book titles. That included "A Pale of Two Cities" and "Lord of the Flies on the Head." Trotter also went for a beloved children's book, turning "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" into "Are You There Mother? It's Me, Your Husband."
The best Bill Murray roles
Whether playing the comedic goofball or an eccentric in a semi-dramatic role, Bill Murray has delivered on the big screen for five decades. Here's our list of his best roles.
Of course, a few song titles made the mix as well. At one point, Trotter suggested something like "Little Trumper Boy," in place of "Little Drummer Boy." In the end, Trotter knew Fallon would go for something "controversial" and salacious - something like "50 Shades of Beige."
When Fallon confirmed all those titles and informed Trotter that he nailed it, the "Roots" member deadpanned: "Cool, 'cause it's a fun bit. You should do it!"
