Jon Stewart spotlighted the ever-increasing size of the Republican field for president, with three new candidates officially declaring themselves in a two-day span — and also, the rapper Eminem has oddly now got something to do with this.

And speaking of those candidates, Carly Fiorina appeared with Seth Meyers, and discussed her campaign’s recent snafu when they failed to secure an important Internet domain name. Her response: She just bought SethMeyers.org. (Really, it looks like she did!)

Larry Wilmore examined the shooting in Texas, at an anti-Muslim group’s public event — along with the political response to it by the group’s founder, Pamela Geller, and others on the right wing..

Jimmy Fallon looked at the “Pros and Cons” of Mother’s Day.

President Trump and Attorney General William Barr

In a wide-ranging and off-the-rails Fox News interview President Donald Trump is demanding Attorney General Bill Barr appoint a special counsel to investigate his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, over Russian disinformation spread by his personal attorney and a conservative media outlet owned by his friend.

Trump told Fox & Friends that Barr has "got to act" against the former vice president and his son Hunter Biden, insisting the Attorney General give credence to the disinformation before Election Day.

"We've go to get the Attorney General to act, and he's got to act, and he's got to act fast. He's got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election," Trump demanded, before declaring, "we're going to win the election."

Fox News mentioned the letter sent to Barr by just 11 of the 198 House Republicans calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the Bidens.

Overnight Politico reported: "More than 50 former senior intelligence officials have signed on to a letter outlining their belief that the recent disclosure of emails allegedly belonging to Joe Biden's son 'has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.'"
