Play of the Day: Trump is Working on His Inauguration Speech

Education nominee Betsy DeVos had her hearing this week and answered a question about gun possession in schools by suggesting that some schools may need firearms to protect students from grizzly bears. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah noted that guns kill more kids than bears in schools, so he's argue that each school should have a bear to protect against guns, while Jimmy Kimmel joked that noted hunter Sarah Palin would be a good nominee for the position.

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted a photo of himself at Mar-a-Lago Wednesday and captioned it "Writing my inaugural address at the Winter White House, Mar-a-Lago, three weeks ago." Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that Trump looks like he's "sitting at a fountain at a Mexican restaurant," while Late Show's Stephen Colbert said the location looked like "Saddam Hussein's bathroom." Meyers also joked that he looks like he's signing for a package, while The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that he "looks like he's taking names for a table at the Cheesecake Factory." Kimmel also joked that the "Winter White House" language is code for "I'm never going to Washington, D.C."
