Play of the Day: The Patriots Take a Patriotic Trip to the White House

According to a new report from Senate Democrats politically opposed to President Donald Trump's signature campaign proposal, the border wall will cost more than three times the original estimate. Conan O'Brien joked about the news, citing Trump's business history of non-payment.

The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visited the White House Wednesday to meet with Trump. Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about the large number of Patriots who skipped the event by comparing photos and joking about Trump's inauguration crowd. While at the White House, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski -- and famous meathead -- popped into Press Secretary Sean Spicer's press briefing briefly and asking if Spicer needed any help. Jimmy Kimmel joked that Spicer is a man who needs a lot of help, while Desus and Mero joked that Gronkowski could probably do just as good a job as Spicer.
