On Monday, Jimmy Fallon decided not to open The Tonight Show with his usual funny monologue, instead opting to address the heartbreaking situation in Charlottesville, Virginia. Fallon took a departure from the show's apolitical nature to deliver an emotionally-charged speech on racism, hate, and President Trump:

"Even though The Tonight Show isn’t a political show, it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance and extremism as a human being," said a somber Fallon to his audience. "What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va., was just disgusting. I was watching the news like everyone else, and you’re seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach."

Fallon continued his speech, saying that he can't imagine his daughters, Winnie Rose, 4, and Francis Cole, 2, growing up in a world with such hate.
