The White House released an oddly-edited video of Donald Trump consoling victims at hospitals.
Democratic 2020 hopeful Joe Biden told Iowans this week that "half of winning is showing up" in Iowa City. Late Night's Seth Meyers noted Biden's speech, joking that Biden then said "the other half is Obama."
President Donald Trump visited El Paso and Dayton to console victims and meet with hosital staff after the recent mass shootings there and was criticized for bragging about his crowd sizes at rallies to El Paso hospital staff. Jimmy Kimmel joked "that's what it's about, them making him feel good," while Meyers joked that a doctor wanted to take Trump to the psych ward when he heard the president speak. The White House released a video of Trump smiling and gesturing at the hospitals with soaring, movie trailer-style music, prompting Kimmel to joke that the video makes it like "he's Batman," while Late Late Show's James Corden noted that "nothing says 'I'm sorry for your loss' quite like the double thumbs up."
