Working from home is now so normal the Supreme Court is even doing it, including un-muted toilet flushing on work calls, Stephen Colbert laughed on Wednesday's Late Show. "Speaking of things going down the toilet: Our economy." At least 30 million Americans have lost their jobs, he noted. "Health experts say reopening the country too soon could have catastrophic results, but that's just a risk Trump is willing for you to take."

President Trump's "new 'Yeah people are gonna die but whatcha gonna do?' attitude also explains why, while he was touring the mask factory, his actual background music — and I promise you we did not make this up — was 'Live and Let Die.'" He suggested adding Peggy Lee and Cutting Crew to Trump's soundtrack.
