Dr. Ronny L. Jackson’s nomination to lead the Veteran’s Affairs Department has hit a major roadblock, with a number of serious accusations emerging against him in recent days.
“Dr. Ronny Jackson is being accused of overseeing a hostile workplace, overprescribing drugs and even drinking on the job. Then again, I gotta say, I think I’d have a drink, too, if I had to check Donald Trump’s prostate.” — JAMES CORDEN
“The White House did little or no vetting of his background before announcing his nomination on Twitter. The White House staff meant to vet him, but they were high on pills they got from some doctor who works there.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“The Daily Show” imagined Trump’s hand as a hungry shark.
Either “The Tonight Show” was feeding him the answers, or Questlove really, really, really knows Prince’s music.
