Play of the Day: Farewell, Rex

Education Department Secretary Betsy DeVos appeared on 60 Minutes last weekend and the show is also working on a story about Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump in 2006. Conan O'Brien joked about the news, saying both Daniels and DeVos are equally qualified to run the Education Department.

Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday morning with a tweet announcing the Cabinet shakeup. Late-night hosts joked about the method, with The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joking that Trump should've at least slid "into his DMs," while O'Brien joked that Trump hired Tillerson via Tinder. Jimmy Kimmel joked about the turnover in the White House and Trump's diet, saying "I'm starting to think he fires people just so he can get a piece of going away cake at the party," while Noah compared working at the White House to the Saw franchise: You show up, you get tortured for a while and then you get killed off.
