Play of the Day: After the Wall, Trump Will Build a Dragon Dome

A man this weekend claimed he evaded Secret Service agents at Mar-a-Lago to snap a selfie in President Donald Trump's private study. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that this was impossible, because there's no way Trump has a study.

FBI Director James Comey testified on Capitol Hill Monday and rebuked Trump on two fronts: He verified that the bureau is investigating possible Russian ties to the 2016 Trump campaign and he knocked down Trump's claim that the Barack Obama administration wiretapped his phones during the campaign. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that the craziness of this administration is so wild that only an O.J. Simpson-style chase would surprise Americans, while The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked about the FBI agents going through Trump's tweets to verify the wiretap claim. Jimmy Kimmel noted that Trump's wiretap tweets came solely from a Fox News story (not from a security briefing), so we'd better be careful if Trump ever watches Game of Thrones because a dragon dome will come after the border wall.
