Donald Trump is having a very big week. On Saturday he will be ringside, calling the action for an Evander Holyfield fight that wouldn't be sanctioned anywhere except for Florida. Last night he appeared on Gutfeld!, doing a sit-down interview with the eponymous host on FOX News' perplexingly popular late-night comedy alternative. There he drew some surprising laughs.

UPDATE: A previous version of this post said a laugh track was used. A Fox News spokesperson tells The Big Lead they came from a studio audience. We regret the error.

As weird as it is to hear laughter over what at least looked like a normal interview with a politician on a cable news network, the most jarring part was hearing Trump describe a phone call he had with Abdul Ghani Baradar, the de facto leader of the Taliban.

"Nice to speak to you by phone, Abdul. And he goes [grunting noise]."

According to Trump, the leader of the Taliban sounds like Tim Allen. Queue the laughs.
