Play of the Day: Will The White House Bring in a Lie Detector To Smoke Out 'Anonymous?'

A red calf was born recently in Jerusalem, causing some groups to claim that the calf could play a part in the rebuilding of the Jewish Holy Temple and portending Christian prophecies of the end times. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked about the news, saying the Education Department chief Betsy DeVos saw the calf and said "strawberry milk for everyone!"

Chief of Staff John Kelly, according to CNN, told Trump to "let it pass," prompting Late Show's Stephen Colbert to joke that Kelly was the writer. Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News that he would submit to a lie detector test about the op-ed, prompting Meyers to joke that bringing a polygraph to the White House would be like bringing "a geiger counter to Chernobyl." Jimmy Kimmel joked that he wants Pence to answer two questions of Pence while hooked up to a lie detector: Did he write the op-ed and where does Pence keep the Victoria's Secret catalogs from "Mother?"
