<p><em>Tonight Show</em> host Jimmy Fallon chose to weave the 2016 election and the promotion of upcoming guest Daisy Ridley from <em>Star Wars: The Force Awakens</em> into his opening monologue late Thursday by joking that Ridley&rsquo;s character had been hired by the Jeb Bush campaign in<strong> &ldquo;an interesting coincidence&rdquo; </strong>since <strong>&ldquo;she plays a character who tries to salvage massive wreckages.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>After reminding the audience that <strong>&ldquo;Daisy Ridley from the new Star Wars movie is here tonight,&rdquo;</strong> Fallon explained that <strong>&ldquo;everyone&#39;s talking about her role and in the movie, she plays a character who tries to salvage massive wreckages.&rdquo;</strong></p>
