Preview Late Night's Closer Look At Today's Republican Embarrassments, From Michael Flynn To Health Care

'Hey Obama, why didn't you fire Flynn?' 'I did.' 'Why didn't you warn Trump about Flynn?' 'I did.' 'Wait, where are you going?' 'MAUI, MOTHERF---ERS!'

"The blame Obama defense doesn't make sense, which may be why Trump administration officials moved on to an even more ridiculous defense: they thought Obama was joking. According to NBC News, a Trump administration official said Obama's remark [advising against hiring Michael Flynn as head of the NSA] 'seemed like it was made in jest.' You know, I knew we'd eventually pay the price for having a president that was as funny as Obama, because someone dumb would think he was joking about something serious."
