Stephen Colbert Interviews Cartoon Hillary Clinton After Her Historic Nomination

Seth Meyers To Bernie Or Busters: Quit Yer Belly-achin’ & Help Dems Beat Trump
Seth Meyers has a message for those hardcore Bernie Sanders supporters who disrupted Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention: “Donald Trump is ahead in the polls. The house is on fire. Stop crying because we’re not putting out the fire with your hose.”

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton appeared at the end of tonight’s DNC, via satellite, capping a “glass ceiling shattering” ceremony.
At the end of a long set, Alicia Keyes pounded on a drum and delivered a message about love always prevailing, which did not necessarily make for the best segue to images of all of the country 44 – male – POTUS’s appearing, one by one, on screen, particularly when Nixon’s image popped up, though others were head scratchers too on the “love”… Read
Bill Clinton Tells America Why He Chose Hillary Clinton – And Why America Should Too
He has spoken at every Democratic National Convention since 1980, including that 1988 ultramarathon that drew some boos but made sure voters would remember him when the next election rolled around.

Madeleine Albright, this country’s first female Secretary of State, told DNC delegates and TV viewers today that, both she and Clinton know, from their shared experience in that office, “know that safeguarding freedom and security is not like hosting a TV reality show.

Zoe McLellan, who played Special Agent Meredith "Merri" Brody on NCIS: New Orleans, will not be returning for Season 3, Deadline has confirmed.
It was a creative decision, according to TVLine which broke the story. Her relationship with a Homeland Security agent compromised her position as a special agent.
