Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.
Et Tu, Bro?
On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to create an independent commission to investigate the attempted insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“Basically, the House wanted to create a commission to look into what we all saw happen with our own eyes,” Jimmy Kimmel said.
Late-night hosts focused on the majority of Republicans who voted against the commission. In the Senate, where prospects are dim, the opposition is led by Mitch McConnell, or, as Kimmel referred to him, a “smug son of a Mitch.”
“This was previously a civil matter. It began after Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen testified that Trump had inflated the value of his properties to get better loans, and then undervalued them when it came to filing taxes. And, of course, it’s not like Donald Trump to cheat, but I guess they had to check it out.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“And they’re looking now at bank fraud, tax fraud, insurance fraud. It’s starting to look like the guy who ran a fraudulent charitable foundation and a fraudulent university might be a fraud.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“So they say Trump could potentially get extradited from Florida to New York. If he does end up in prison, I think we should give him Twitter back. I don’t know about you, but I’d want to know everything that goes on in there, right? I’d pay for that.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“This ends with a police chase, too, right? O.J. style? Either that or this will be the 37th crime he gets away with.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
