Late Night Roundup: Baltimore, Gang Members, Peace, And Pie

Larry Wilmore went down to Baltimore, and sat down in a local diner with some actual gang members to discuss their public truce and peacekeeping efforts in the riots, along with the longstanding social causes of the unrest.

The Daily Show spotlighted the entrance of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) into the Democratic presidential race, with Jon Stewart comparing and contrasting Sanders and Hillary Clinton. The biggest difference: Hillary Clinton is going to win the nomination.

First Lady Michelle Obama appeared with David Letterman, and spoke on the work she has been doing to improve the opportunities and treatment of veterans.

Kim Kardashian appeared with Jimmy Kimmel, and talked about how she’s been getting along with her stepfather Bruce Jenner, and helping him with his (now publicly revealed) gender transition.

And in a wonderful musical number — something that has become the best feature of this show — James Corden joined with Idina Menzel for a Dirty Dancing tribute.
