Late Night Round-Up

Sometimes, fake news comes in a photo. The White House not-so-cleverly released an image of President Trump “working” during the government shutdown. It’s an obviously-staged shot of an obviously not-at-work Trump, showing the POTUS at an empty desk in an empty Oval Office. There’s nothing and no one around, except for the phone he’s supposedly having a “work” conversation on.

But who was The Donald calling? Seth Meyers has a few ideas…in-between his magnificent take-downs of the Trump administration for putting out yet another ridiculously fake story.

 

Conan O’Brien is rarely acknowledged for his political comedy. And this bit is hardly as cutting as, say, Colbert’s monologue on any given night.

Still, the eponymous Conan host and his writing staff knocked the softball out of the park on Thursday with this cast list.
