Play of the Day: The Trump Administration Wants to Put Reality in Prison

According to reports, Second Lady Karen Pence is setting up a beehive at the Vice Presidential residence with tens of thousands of bees. Conan O'Brien joked that her husband may have a problem being near the queen bee, considering his policies on being alone with women.

Federal law enforcement arrested a former intelligence contractor for leaking classified information on Russian interference into the 2016 election to The Intercept this week. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked everyone knew that the report was classified because it was marked "don't show Donald Trump." Everyone joked about the name of the arrested contractor's name: Reality Winner. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked that all news seems like "God had a mid-life crisis and he quit his day job to make a web series," while Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked that Trump is now officially "at war with Reality." Colbert also joked that the whole situation -- including Winner's name and the name of her former employer, Pluribus International Corporation -- sounds like a James Bond movie, which would make the president a Bond villain named Smallfinger.
