Play of the Day: The FBI Had Better Options to Survey the Clinton Emails

Phil Long/AP

Krispy Kreme is running a promotion this week to celebrate voting in Tuesday's election. Anyone can visit select stores, show off their "I voted" sticker and receive a free donut. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about the unhealthy -- but delicious -- treat giveaway, saying "that way, you can make two decisions you're not really proud of."

The news Sunday was that the FBI cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the emails found on Anthony Weiner's laptop late last month. Last Week Tonight's John oliver joked about Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway's insistence that Clinton's email scandal "has not been front and center of our campaign." Oliver noted that "email" is up there in a Trump word cloud near "wall," "big league" and "WRONG!" Saturday Night Live's Michael Che joked about the bureau's tactics for searching the newly-found messages, saying a more efficient way would be to just "leave your laptop open at your girlfriend's house," because you're soon going to be asked about "the funky bitch Benghazi."
