The Trump administration has been a revolving door for employees. At least 22 people have either resigned or been fired, including Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, and Director of Communications for WH Office of Public Liason Omarosa Manigault.
Now, Dr. Evil can be added to the list. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mike Myers reprised his famous villainous role to talk about getting fired from the Trump administration. "Well, naturally I was going to be the Secretary of Evil but Steve Bannon got that job," explained Dr. Evil. Instead, he ended up being an "ideas guy" who came up with "the wall"—although he wanted it to be an Alec Baldwin–provided "moat with spikey blowfish."
But deporting dreamers was never a part of his plan. "Even I have my limits," he said. "I'm evil, but I'm not a monster."
Dr. Evil did make at least one friend in Ben Carson, who's surprisingly still held onto his position as HUD Secretary, and who has things in common with Austin Powers' foe. "We're both evil doctors who didn't know why we were there," Dr. Evil says. He also credits Carson's skill of using taxpayer money for a $30,000 dining room set for being "particularly evil." On the other hand, he thought Donald Trump Jr. was "creepy AF."
Luckily Dr. Evil is coming out with a book on his times there, Fire and Fury and Also Evil and More Fire and Even Magma, a clear spoof of Michael Wolff's explosive tell-all of the Trump administration, Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House. When Fallon noted the title is a bit "wordy," Dr. Evil offered a better summarization: Shit Show.
As for Dr. Evil's next moves, it turns out he's gunning for the Oval—and he's got the perfect VP choice with "the only man who's more hated than Donald Trump," Mark Zuckerberg.
