Jimmy Fallon's Trump impression put a nice bow-tie on the cosmic absurdity of it all.


Elisabeth Hasselbeck dealt with the news of bin Laden's death in her own special way: by writing a 4-line children's poem to explain the news to her young kids. As Nick Zaino wrote at the time, "Caldecott Medal judges, take note."
