Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert wring laughs from this week’s second-most recent constitutional crisis

Late-night hosts respond with appropriate subtlety to President Shithole’s racist comments

You can say this for Donald Trump: He sure is a vulgar, embarrassing old bigot.

Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Fox News’ desperate Trump-Russia distraction tactics

Seth Meyers calls out “powerful, predatory” men and the system that sustains them on Late Night
