Play of the Day: El Chapo Threatens The Donald

The huge news of this week has been the historic nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran. While not an easy target for humor, Late Night's Seth Meyers, The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien all tried to make light of the deal. Fallon targeted the connection between Russia and Iran, Meyers tied the deal to the 2016 GOP field and O'Brien joked about modernity in Iran.

On a more local front, Donald Trump continues to make news. His golf course in Puerto Rico filed for bankruptcy this week his Twitter account sent out an illustration featuring Nazi soldiers and Trump himself is in a social media feud over his comments about immigration with escaped Mexican drug kingpin drug Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán. Even with all that, Trump can still crow because he's currently leading the GOP field in the polls.
