Best of Late Night.

— Jimmy Kimmel

“Remember when Michelle Obama showed her bare arms and went to an oil spill, and Fox News went nuts? I’m sure they’ll have the same reaction to this.”
— Jimmy Kimmel

“It is kind of sweet that she made a jacket out of her and Donald’s wedding vows.”
— Trevor Noah

On Summer:

“Today is the first official day of summer. Right now everyone’s thinking, ‘I’m going to hike, I’m going to go camping, I’m going to hit the beach.’ While Netflix is like, ‘Sure you are.’”
