White House via YouTube

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway was photographed sitting while wearing her shoes on an Oval Office couch this week, prompting some media attention. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about the photograph, saying Conway wasn't wearing shoes, but "alternative socks." The Daily Show's Trevor Noah also joked about the picture, saying Conway would be playing Truth or Dare... if she knew what truth was.

President Donald Trump addresses a joint session of Congress Tuesday night and Late Show's Stephen Colbert went live to dissect Trump's speech. He joked about Trump being caught on camera rehearsing his speech in his limo, saying Trump looked like a man scanning a menu. He showed Trump saying that immigrants should "able to support themselves financially" upon reaching the U.S., which Colbert joked could change the Emma Lazarus poem on the Statue of Liberty. Colbert also joked about the speech's section on American innovation, joking about the president harkening back to the 1886 World's Fair.
