Mike Myers revived his famed Dr. Evil character to take aim at President Donald Trump during a talk show on Wednesday night.

As part of his monologue on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," host Fallon mentioned he had landed an interview with the latest departing cabinet member of President Trump's White House.

Myers then appeared onscreen outfitted as the villain of the Austin Powers movies, the last of which was released in 2002, and sat in a chair as Fallon questioned, "Dr. Evil?"

"No, it's Adam Levine. Of course, it's Dr. Evil, numbnuts," he replied, going on to joke that he wanted the "Secretary of Evil" position but former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon "got that job."

Fallon went on to ask what exactly Dr. Evil had done at the White House, to which he explained that he was "more of an ideas guy."

"The wall, that was all me. But I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish. I didn't want the Mexicans to pay for it, I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it," the antagonist smiled, referencing the actor's portrayal of the American leader on the long-running sketch series "Saturday Night Live."

Dr. Evil took credit for a number of other proposals, including Trump's idea for a "space force," which one day may fight alongside the Air Force, Army and other branches of the military, and stated that "all the most evil stuff was me."

"Even deporting the Dreamers?" Fallon then queried, to which Dr. Evil said: "I'm evil but I'm not a monster."

Dr. Evil then shared that he will be promoting his book, "Fire and Fury and Also Evil: And More Fire and Also Magma Too, "now that he has some free time on his hands and is also planning to run for the U.S. presidency in 2020, proceeding to display a red baseball cap with the words "Make the World Evil Again" printed on the front, a play on Trump's slogan, "Make America Great Again."

"Plus, I found the perfect running mate, the only man is who is more hated than Donald Trump: Mark Zuckerberg," he joked, referencing the recent Facebook data sharing scandal.

Myers later appeared as a guest on the TV talk show, where he promoted his new movie "Terminal. "
