This may come as a bit of a shock, but Donald Trump actually had something nice to say about Barack Obama during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

After President Obama addressed the nation last week regarding his executive order to implement stronger gun control in the U.S, many conservatives criticized his “theatrics.” They accused him of staging the tears in his eyes as an emotional moment to appeal to the country instead of focusing on the issues.

Fox News' Andrea Tantaros went so far as to say, "I would check that podium for like a raw onion or some no-more-tears... I mean, it’s not really believable.” And Tantaros is not alone in her suspicions.

Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, begs to differ! Appearing as a guest on "The Tonight Show" (Jan. 11), Trump says, “I thought that was heartfelt. I thought it was real, and you know, it’s a tough situation.”

Fallon goes on to ask Trump if he ever cries, much to the audience’s amusement. In response, Trump talks about his daughter and his grandchildren, though he only fesses up to crying as kid. “When I was 1, I cried.”
