Late Night Hosts: “Now Is Not the Time” Means “Never” on Gun Control

The last two days have been terrible due to the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, which resulted in nearly 60 deaths and over 500 people injured. Those who don't see it as a rallying cry for real legislative attempts to prevent this from happening have already started saying it's too soon after the tragedy to talk about such a thing, which is nonsense for several reasons, including that the U.S. averages one mass shooting per day, with a "major" one about every two months.

Plus some bonus President Obama word-Judo.

Right now, Senate Republicans are trying to push through a "health care" bill to make good on their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, whether or not the bill they replace it with is actually an improvement or a thing that most of the American people want. Despite hopeful reports that the bill could fall apart and spare us all, it still has a very real chance of passing as Republican Senators who are currently against it could still turn around and vote for it for a variety of reasons.

SNL’s Season Is Over, But Kate McKinnon Still Has Plenty of Jeff Sessions Material She Needs to Get Out of Her System

"Recuse me."

Saturday Night Live is off for the summer, which is upsetting for Kate McKinnon, who's forced to keep her delightfully creepy impressions of political figures bottled up inside, with no outlet.

Luckily, Seth Meyers is happy to help her out.

Seth Meyers Breaks Down the Absurd Hypocrisy of the Last Week of the Trump Transition

Donald Trump made quite a splash this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with the overtly racist (and patently false) assertion that Representative John Lewis's congressional district is "crime infested" and "falling apart." Even without Trump's trademark old-school racism (usually on display with comments about "inner cities"), his words were just patently false, so there's really no defense for them—but that didn't stop anyone for trying.

Seth Meyers Reminds Hillary Clinton That the “Rules Are Different” for a Woman Running for President

Whether or not you believe that the main reason people dislike Hillary Clinton is because she's a woman and/or the sexist propaganda that has resulted from her being a woman, it's hard to deny (though people will certainly try) that sexism at least plays a part in the dynamics of this year's presidential election, as it does in everything involving women.
