On September 26, the Republican lawmaker took to Twitter to share his perspective.
"Since Joe Biden took office -- 1.2 MILLION POUNDS of illegal drugs have been seized at our southern border," the Texas lawmaker tweeted. "If you needed more evidence that this Administration's border policies are contributing to a surging drug crisis -- look no further."
Twitter users quickly weighed in as they were unclear about the point Fallon was hoping to make. Many users also made attempts to interpret Fallon's post to understand what he was actually trying to say.
"I read this 3 times and still confused. Is he saying stopping drugs at the border is a bad thing?" one Twitter user asked.
Another user also expressed similar concerns. "I'm sorry, but I don't understand," another user tweeted. "This administration is, by your own admission, seizing over one million pounds of illegal drugs at the border. That seems like this Administration's border policies are MITIGATING a surging drug crisis. Please explain it to me like I'm 5."
"So you don’t approve of seizing drugs at the border?" one user asked. "Is that the border policy you object to?"
Another user actually explained to Fallon that border patrol agents were actually doing their job. "That means they stopped the drugs from coming across the border," the Twitter user explained. "You understand that means they’re doing their job right? or do your ears whistle on a windy day?"
A bodybuilder who in the past has gotten work as a model for the covers of romance novels has pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer while taking part in the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building.
As NBC News reports, 41-year-old Michigan man Logan Barnhart pleaded guilty to dragging a Metropolitan Police Department officer down the stairs at the Capitol and pushing him into a mob of Trump supporters who continued assaulting him.
Barnhart also pleaded guilty to shoving law enforcement officers and swinging at them with a flagpole.
During a court appearance on Wednesday, Barnhart told U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan that everything in his guilty plea was "100 percent true."
NBC News notes that Barnhart was identified by amateur internet sleuths using facial recognition technology.
"[The sleuths] had given him the nickname 'Catsweat' because he was wearing a Caterpillar brand sweatshirt on Jan. 6," NBC News writes. "Barnhart kept his sunglasses on for most of the time he was at the Capitol. But earlier in the day, while he was at the Trump 'Stop the Steal' event near the White House, a YouTuber panned past his face, which gave sleuths a good image to run."
The sleuths were then able to match Barnhart's face with a face that appeared multiple times on the covers of romance novels -- and that turned out to be Barnhart.
Corey Lewandowski has reached an agreement with Las Vegas prosecutors after he was charged with misdemeanor battery for making unwanted sexual advances toward a woman last year.
Trashelle Odom, the wife of Idaho construction executive and GOP donor John Odom, had accused Lewandowski of repeatedly touching her legs and buttocks at a September 2021 charity dinner, but the former Donald Trump campaign adviser reached an agreement that could result in the charges being dismissed, reported Politico.
Clark County prosecutors filed the charge last month, but Lewandowski agreed to undergo eight hours of impulse-control counseling, serve 50 hours of community service and remain out of trouble for a year, and pay a $1,000 fine.

Lewandowski did not have to admit guilt as part of the deal, and the charges will be dismissed once he meets all the conditions.
Odom was among about two dozen major Republican donors at the charity dinner at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s Benihana restaurant, ad she accused Lewandowski of touching her inappropriately and discussing his genitals and sexual performance.
Lewandowski, who was seated next to her while her husband was not present, also showed her his hotel room key, Odom said.
