Late Night Won’t Let Trump’s Legal Team Forget Sidney Powell So Easily

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. Many of us are stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.

Just a Theory

President Trump’s legal team disavowed the lawyer Sidney Powell on Sunday after she cited wild conspiracy theories to back her claims that the election had been rigged, including one involving the former President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.

“One slight problem: Chávez has been dead since 2013,” Stephen Colbert noted on Monday. “Though I gotta say, he still looks healthier than Mitch McConnell.”

“Yes, she doesn’t work with them at all. It’s just a coincidence that during Giuliani’s two-hour press conference, she was onstage the entire time. It’s a simple mix-up. They invited Sidney Powell, but they meant to invite Sidney Powell Total Landscaping.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“And if you thought Rudy was bonkers, this lady is crazier than a cereal mascot.” — SETH MEYERS

“Yeah, she got kicked off Trump’s legal team for being too crazy. That’s like getting kicked off of ‘Real Housewives’ for being too crazy.” — JIMMY FALLON

“Here’s how big of an embarrassment she was to the Trump team: The guy who held a press conference next to a sex shop, and last week had hair dye running down his face and who wears loafers that look like clown shoes — that guy? Still on the team.” — JAMES CORDEN

“Seriously, you know how nuts you have to be when Rudy Giuliani’s head starts leaking and you’re the one who gets fired?” — JIMMY FALLON

“Man, you’ve got to be pretty crazy if Rudy Giuliani thinks you’re a liability: ‘Sorry, Ms. Powell, but you’re a loose cannon. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m late for a press conference where I say Joe Biden is the Hamburglar.’” — SETH MEYERS

“For anyone asking what’s more embarrassing than being on the Trump legal team, the answer is getting fired from the Trump legal team.” — JIMMY FALLON

“Yep, her conspiracy theories were too much even for Trump. Well, today she wrote a farewell email. It said: ‘My fellow Trump lawyers, well, it finally happened — the illuminati got me fired. Luckily, you’ll still find the culprits who hacked the election: Hugo Chávez, Charles Barkley and Flo the Progressive Insurance lady. They’re in a bunker nine miles below before the Times Square Bubba Gump’s Shrimp. The password to enter is “Elvis is alive and he lives at Area 51.” Hail Zoltar! Sidney. P.S. Jets are going all the way this year.’” — JIMMY FALLON

The Punchiest Punchlines (Thanksgiving 2020 Edition)

“Last week, the C.D.C. urged Americans not to travel, so, of course, we’re traveling.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“What are people doing? Three million Americans are gonna show up for Thanksgiving like, ‘I brought some yams or maybe the plague.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“If you’re going to travel this week, at least do the decent thing by sealing yourself in a box and letting FedEx ship you home.” — JIMMY FALLON

“Can’t be comforting when you’re at a crowded airport watching CNN talk about how dumb it is to be at an airport.” — JIMMY FALLON

“You know it’s a bad idea when even airport sushi thinks you’re disgusting.” — JIMMY FALLON

“What do they expect? We’re the same people they had to tell not to eat Tide Pods.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Every year, we look for an excuse to get out of spending Thanksgiving with our families. We finally now have one and everyone’s complaining. Embrace it. How much cranberry Jell-O can you eat?” — JIMMY KIMMEL
