President Donald trump's nominee for NASA administrator, James Bridenstine , was approved this week by the Senate on a party line vote, but faced criticism for having no science background outisde of being a one-time museum administrator. Conan O'Brien joked about his lack of experience, saying he's "overqualified" to be in the Trump administration.
Trump spoke in Florida on Thursday about his potential upcoming meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong-un. According to reports, Trump sees the North Korea situation to be his "great man of history moment," prompting Late Show's Stephen Colbert to joke that Trump could one day be on American money… hush money, perhaps. Trump also noted that he will walk away from his conversation with Kim if it is not "fruitful" and repeated the word a few times. Colbert joked that the portly two leaders don't look like they've eaten much fruit, while The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that Trump was just thinking of Froot Loops cereal.
