Play of the Day: Trump Predicts 'Sleepy Joe' and 'Crazy Bernie' Will Duke It Out

South Bend mayor and 2020 Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg was heckled by a protestor yelling about Sodom and Gomorrah at a recent rally. Conan O'Brien joked about the news, implying that Vice President Mike Pence was the protestor screaming.

President Donald Trump tweeted a prediction about the 2020 Dems on Wednesday, saying "I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists" and ending his tweet with "May God Rest Their Soul!" Jimmy Kimmel joked about the tweet, saying "Crazy Bernie" and "Sleepy Joe" sound like "characters in a Springsteen song," while Late Late Show's James Corden noted the word "finalists" and said "this is the Democratic primary, not the season finale of The Voice." Late Show's Stephen Colbert noted the final wording, wondering if Trump is going to "campaign them to death" and said "we'll let you get away with 'Lock her up,' but I draw the line at 'Dig the grave!'"
