Play of the Day: Trump's Condolence Calls

A spurious rumor bounced around the social media last week when a Twitter user posited that First Lady Melania Trump is using a body double in public appearances. The Opposition's Jordan Klepper joked about the news, saying that 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton used body doubles and "two Hillaries were running for president and somehow neither of them could figure out how to get to Wisconsin."

President Donald Trump remains involved in a controversy over his condolence call to a Gold Star family. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked that Trump may not be the one in the White House to make condolence calls, saying Melania might be better. He also joked about Trump's vocabulary, saying "What do you think? A phone is going magically transform him into Sir Phineas the Eloquent?"
