Play of the Day: This Witch Hunt is the 'Greatest in American History'

President Donald Trump is heading on his first overseas trip in office Friday, when he will begin his trip in Saudi Arabia. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that the reluctant traveler only agreed to go if would "get to meet Aladdin and Princess Jasmine."

After the news broke of Robert Mueller being named special prosecutor, Trump tweeted Thursday morning "This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that Trump then flew away on a broom, while Fallon compared Trump the villain of the Wizard of Oz. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked that Trump's press people must be furious with him because every attempt at being presidential ends up with angry tweets.
