Play of the Day: The White House Plan To Fight Against Wildfires

President Donald Trump had dinner at his New Jersey private golf club with CEOs on Tuesday. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked about the news, saying the dinner made the rest of Bernie Sanders' hair fall right out when he heard about it.

Trump recently tweeted about the wildfire ravaging California, blaming regulations for river water being "being diverted into the Pacific Ocean." Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about the tweet, noting that rivers flow into oceans normally and Trump doesn't now how rivers work. Trump also implied in his tweet that California must cut down more flammable trees to stop the wildfires, prompting Colbert to modify Smokey Bear's famous catchphrase to "Only you can prevent forests."
