Play of the Day: A Hiccup in the JFK Files Release

President Donald Trump was interviewed by Lou Dobbs this week and was asked about which border wall prototype he liked best. Trump answered "You do need some see-through ability because you don’t know who’s – if you do pure concrete which is a wall then you can’t see who’s on the other side." The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about Trump's answer, saying Trump is "building a window."

The release of thousands of files related to President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination was modified this week, as thousands of files were redacted or withheld from the public due to national security concerns. Jimmy Kimmel joked about the news, noting that Trump tweeted the files were "so interesting" and that Trump didn't read any of the files, but rather "Maybe John Kelly read them out loud while [Trump] ate fried chicken in the bathtub."
