Play of the Day: Trump Wants to End DACA

President Donald Trump visited Texas last week to assess the damage from Hurricane Harvey and assist in some of the relief efforts. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked about Trump's comments in Houston, comparing them to the Hindenburg announcer. Jimmy Kimmel also joked about Trump's assistance in loading trucks and serving food to Texans, noting his love for the camera.

Trump announced that he will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program this week. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that the move will mean many will be deported after living decades in the U.S. and tied it to Trump's wife Melania, while Kimmel joked that he hoped Trump's reversing Obama-era policies won't mean a reanimated Osama bin Laden. Meyers and Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about Trump's tweet asking Congress to act on DACA, with Meyers noting that the rhythm of Trump's tweets often sound like he's trying to surprise someone.
