Ever since then-candidate Bill Clinton appeared on “The Arsenio Hall” show and played the saxophone, late night has been a must-go stop for presidential candidates. Late night hosts, except for some of the edgier ones like Jon Stewart, tend to be friendlier to even controversial politicians than people on the cable news networks. Such was the case when Donald Trump appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon. Allowing the host to mess up his orange hair, thus proving that it is not a toupee, was just one instance of the candidate humanizing himself.

Trump has been relentlessly trying to make himself more human and thus more acceptable to the American voters.

Gone is the scary man who insults journalists, says bad things about Mexicans and Muslims, and sneers at everyone else. Now the calm Donald Trump 2.0 yucked it up with Fallon, acting no less or more than a cool uncle who brings warmth and good feeling to every room he enters.

Which is the real Trump, the wild and crazy version or the more agreeable one? We are supposed to forget the former and just vote for the latter, a hard thing to do in this age of YouTube. And yet, faced with a sickly, corrupt monster in the form of Hillary Clinton, a lot of people want to believe that Trump has gotten control of himself and will govern as he is now campaigning. That hope may not be in vain, especially if Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, becomes his White House chief of staff and continues to provide adult supervision to the formerly mercurial real estate tycoon and reality TV star.

Trump can carry off the new version because he is used to being in front of the camera and playing a persona. Clinton, on the other hand, unlike her husband, has only one character and it is that of the unpleasant ex-wife who is always screeching about something and is criticizing everyone (basket of deplorables) and whom one wishes would just go away.

If she loses the presidency and her reason for putting up with Bill Clinton’s nonsense, the world may get its wish.
