With the news that hacking can come in the form of taking over electrical health devices, The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno put a spotlight on the capability by showing a video clip of one of the United States’ more famous pacemaker users and Barack Obama controlling his heart rate.

Obama’s trip to Europe was a key point in Real Time host Bill Maher’s monologue Friday. Maher tied the trip to the National Security Agency’s surveillance program and the most recent immigration plan out of Washington. The Late Late Show’s Craig Ferguson used a new blockbuster to make a joke about the NSA program, as well.

Fast forward to 2:00 to see Leno show a video metaphor for the Sisyphean task of controlling the border between the United States and Mexico.
