Play of the Day: Donald Trump Does the Sword Dance

Karta, a GPS firm, has added "President Donald Trump" as its voice navigation options recently. Late Night's Seth Meyers and Conan O'Brien joked about the news and tied it to Trump's love of talking about the November electoral map.

Trump is overseas on his first trip abroad as president and participated in a ceremony including the ardah, a traditional sword dance, in Saudi Arabia. Trump looked a little uncomfortable dancing, as Meyers pointed out by saying he looked like a "grandpa doing the Electric Slide with a deadly weapon," while Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked that Trump looked like he was doing the Super Bowl Shuffle. Jimmy Kimmel had understandable sympathy for Trump, pointing out that American presidents don't take foreign leaders to Dallas hoedowns on American visits. Colbert and Kimmel also changed the music and made the video much better. Check out the new tracks at 3:00.
