Play of the Day: Comey's Book Blurbs

According to reports, President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is spending one of every five dollars on lawyers. Jimmy Kimmel joked about the news on Monday, saying the other money is being spent on "self tanner on chicken nuggets."

A Higher Loyalty, James Comey's book, is being released this week and Comey was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC Sunday night. Comey spent part of the interview cattily recounting his first impression's of Trump's hair, tan and tie, prompting Late Show's Stephen Colbert to joke that Comey should be a Drag Race judge and The Daily Show's Trevor Noah to compare Comey to a former White Castle employee. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon had some fake blurbs for the book, including Hillary Clinton saying "This is the best book I've ever hurled through a window."
