Play of the Day: Awkward Handshakes at the North American Leaders' Summit

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, 13% of respondents said they would prefer a "giant meteor hitting the earth" over Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. The Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about this poll, joking about a potential Trump presidency.

Conan O'Brien had parody video of the handshake … and even a hooked hand showed up.
