“It’s 2018, evil’s in right now."
Mike Myers returned to The Tonight Show on Monday night (Nov. 5) as his character Dr. Evil to announce he was running for Congress. Interrupting host Jimmy Fallon’s show, Myers appeared in character, laughing maniacally. “Dr. Evil, is that you?” Fallon asked. “No, it’s white Cory Booker,” Myers responded.
When asked why he’d be running for public office, Myers responded, “It’s 2018, evil’s in right now. It’s hip. It’s like playing Fortnite while slamming a Tide pod and doing the Shiggy challenge.” Myers then conceded that he was “originally hoping for Brett Kavanaugh’s job,” but “Trump said I was too even-tempered for that.”
