All eyes are on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s choice of running mate, but like many parts of likely Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, his choice is unpredictable.

During Wednesday’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on NBC, Fallon decided to take a gander at Trump’s selection.

Chris Christie? LeBron James? Chewbacca mom? Nope.

“The only person good enough to be my vice president is me,” Fallon said, impersonating Trump at a press conference.

He presented “Little Donald,” impressionist and eighth-grader Jack Aiello, who mimicked Trump, Clinton and even Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders flawlessly.

“Together, the two of us will create jobs, will grow the economy, and more importantly – we will find Dory,” Fallon quipped.

Aiello came to national attention after his comedic graduation speech from 8th grade went viral.
