Play of the Day: The First Lady Gets In On the 'You're Fired!' Fun

On Twitter, President Donald Trump responded to critics of his skipping a World War I commemoration by placing the blame on his transportation and Secret Service detail and claiming that he wanted to go to the event. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked about the news, claiming Twitter's translate button could sum up the tweet more easily by making a crying noise.

In an unprecedented move, First Lady Melania Trump's office released a public statement calling for the removal of Mira Ricardel, a deputy national security adviser, from her position. Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about the news, tying it to her famous jacket incident, while Meyers wondered if she could just fire people at will (including her husband).
