Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.
‘The Infest Wing’
Late night hosts had a lot to work with on Monday, touching on Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis and his return to the White House after spending the weekend being treated at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
“Yep, good news, it’s safe for the president to return home — mostly because everyone at the White House already has the virus,” Jimmy Fallon joked in his monologue.
“I mean, these people don’t even know how to fake work: ‘We should put out a photo showing he’s hard at work.’ ‘Good idea — what would that be?’ ‘I don’t know — it’s crazy, but maybe signing a blank piece of paper. Does the president do that?’” — SETH MEYERS
“Now, people were mocking this online, which made Trump furious at his staff. He was like, ‘You guys told me these were military contracts written in invisible ink!’” — JAMES CORDEN
