On Thursday #EndorseThis covered the laser-beam focused satire of Samantha Bee. But good comedy comes in many flavors. Jimmy Fallon’s late-night monologues are less edgy but usually include something for everyone.

Jimmy doesn’t disappoint in today’s clip, leading off with a sharp bit about Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Mueller’s current daily task is combing through 40,000 tweets and replies on President Trump’s Twitter profile. As the comic points out, the ditch diggers and cesspool engineers of the world can feel a little more grateful about their jobs now.

But the big payoff comes at 1:37 as Fallon beta-tests three potential slogans for Joe Biden’s likely 2020 Presidential campaign. The first motto compares the body English of Trump and Biden, the second is a playful jab at establishment politics, and the third will be especially entertaining to Obama fans.

Watch to the end for a hilarious bit with William Burroughs-style cut-up news bulletins.

Publicly, former President Donald Trump is taking credit for the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade and ultimately revoking women's right to legal abortions. But, behind closed doors, he reportedly is not thrilled about the ruling.

According to Rolling Stone, "privately, the former president is anxious about what the end of Roe, and the flood of extreme Republican state-level anti-abortion laws it will unleash, will mean for the GOP’s electoral prospects — and for his own."
