Late Night Tackles President Trump

Conan imagines Obama-Trump phone chats about Putin election hacking, hamster tunnels, daughters

Conan O'Brien is on a mission to inform the American public about what President Obama and President-elect Donald Trump discuss on their phone calls — or at least the imagined phone chats dreamed up by Conan's writing staff and performed by actors. "It's against the law to release private phone calls — I don't care," Conan said on Friday's show. In this second round of creatively re-enacted phone conversations, Trump asked the president about nominating a horse for education secretary, what he should buy to thank Russian President Vladimir Putin for hacking the DNC, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and building a hamster tunnel between Trump Tower and the White House. It's the last conversation, though, that drew gasps from Conan's audience. Watch below. Peter Weber
