Play of the Day: Tensions Build Between the United States and North Korea
Vice News reported this week that "a special folder" of positive news coverage is shown to President Donald Trump twice a day. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about the folder and Trump's work ethic, while Jimmy Kimmel joked that Trump gets a third folder "if he eats his vegetables."
Late-night spent another day joking about the escalating tensions between North Korea and the United States. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that Trump's ad-libbed "fire and fury" line bring back nightmares of improv shows, while Fallon joked that Trump may not pay attention to Kim Jong-un's threats toward Guam because Trump doesn't have a golf course there. Late Show's Stephen Colbert also noted North Korea's threats, saying that the Kim government's threats of hitting Guam with "enveloping fire" sounds an awful lot like a romance novel title.
