The Daily Show spotlighted the problem of growing inequality — between the millionaires, and the even more elite billionaires. And they also featured one oddly Patriotic Millionaire, who even wants to have economic policies that would lift up everyone else.

Larry Wilmore hosted a panel on the economic issues facing black women in America.

Jimmy Fallon hosted actor James Spader, who told the interesting story of how in the 1970s he was friends at school with John F. Kennedy Jr., and that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis helped get him his first acting job.

Jimmy Kimmel presented a special message for the anti-vaccine movement — featuring doctors who couldn’t believe they even had to create this public service announcement.

Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani on ITV's Good Morning Britain

Have you missed Trump counselor Rudy Giuliani lately? Maybe not. How about former Murdoch journalist and ardent Trump sycophant Piers Morgan? You may not even remember him, although he once had a CNN talk show.

But Rudy and Piers are still out there – and on Thursday morning they got into a furious tussle on British ITV, where Morgan hosts a morning show.

A man who knows which way the wind is blowing, Morgan dared to criticize Trump for inflaming public anger with stupid tweets about the George Floyd demonstrations. That enraged guest Rudy, who insisted that everything Trump has done was perfect and that he is simply the victim of "left-wing media," a category in which he laughably included Morgan.

The ensuing verbal fisticuffs are a pleasure to watch, as Morgan informs Giuliani that he's deranged and Giuliani, in Trumpish style, mocks Morgan's weak US ratings. (Voices start to rise around 3:30.)

Enjoy!
