Jimmy Fallon debuted his impression of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg in a skit for “The Tonight Show.”

Fallon appears on stage to give a speech about his 2020 election bid dressed in full Buttigieg attire.

“By age 14, I knew I wanted to be President of the United States – and boy, the two years since have just flown by,” Fallon quips in character as the presidential hopeful.

He continues: “I’m a Rhodes Scholar, a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, and the two of the smartest kids in the world stacked on top of each other. I was so qualified to go to college, Harvard bribed me to go. That’s how got the nickname The Reverse Aunt Becky,” a nod to Lori Loughlin’s college bribe scandal.

At the end, Fallon sums up Buttigieg by saying “I’m a little green, but I’m fresh, Instagram-able and, ultimately, good for you. I’m the avocado toast of the Democratic party.”
