Play of the Day: It’s So Hot In D.C...

TBS

Liz Cheney candidate’s father was an important national political figure in the previous decade, so her announcement that she’s running for one of Wyoming’s Senate seats in 2014 was noted by late-night hosts Wednesday night. The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno joked about her relative conservatism to her father, while Conan O’Brien outlined the main plank in her platform.

National Security Agency leaker dward Snowden is still stuck in the Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, waiting for somewhere to accept his request for asylum. David Letterman pulled out some airport jokes, including mentioning that Snowden is keeping fit by using the baggage carousel as a treadmill. Jimmy Fallon mentioned Snowden in connection to a new Google research product, ending the joke by making fun of Snowden’s glasses.

On The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert mocked the House of Representatives for relative inactivity on immigration reform. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., in particular, was in the crosshairs for wanting more immigration enforcement within the United States, which prompted Colbert to joke about “internal border security.”

Fast forward to 3:20 to see  Leno talk about the effects of a recent heat wave in DC that has temperatures above 100.
