Play of the Day: Easter at the White House

CBS

Monday was holiday-centric on late-night television. Sunday marked Al Gore’s 65th birthday, which was noted by Jay Leno and David Letterman tied April Fool’s Day to Gore’s combatant in the 2000 election, former president George W. Bush. Easter was a huge point of humor, though, with the White House Easter Egg Roll happening Monday. Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative brought out food jokes, while the entire happening -- egg rolling and yoga gardens, specifically -- made Jimmy Kimmel question how much fun the event actually was.

On Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert spent much of his first segment on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- commonly known as Obamacare -- pointing out Canada’s system and the health insurance that Congress receives. Jimmy Fallon was animal-centric, blaming Bo Obama for the president’s late budget and talking panda reproduction at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.

Fast forward to 3:10 to learn what surprising things an overzealous kid found at the White House Sunday.
