Conan O’Brien: “A new study just came out, and it claims that the stress of being president takes three years off your life. So suddenly, everyone is thinking of voting for Trump.”

You know, like a freaking shortage of baby formula! But hey, it's all about worshipping the fetus and hating the actual child for these Taliban Republicans.
