Play of the Day: More On Trump's Puerto Rico Response

Social media giant Facebook will turn over information to Congress in relation to an investigation into Russia buying ads on the network to influence the 2016 election. Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about the news, comparing the Russian ads to the "One Weird Trick" scam that dots the social network.

The federal response to Hurricane Maria's devastation of Puerto Rico has been criticized by some, prompting President Donald Trump to defend federal efforts. Trump slammed local leadership efforts at hurricane relief on Twitter, prompting Last Week Tonight's John Oliver to joke that the president's tweets sound like his 2015 speech about Mexicans and the border. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon and joked about Trump's geography lesson last week, joking that "there could be fish in the water." Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost took the same route, joking that Trump may have been looking at one of the "old sailor maps with sea monsters on it."
