Conan’s monologue features an unusual line-up; the Dodgers, the Astros and Ulysses S. Grant. In exciting sports news, the winner of the World Series this year will be the very first to have the enviable honor of turning down an invitation to the White House! Conan also jokes about Paul Manafort – of course. Manafort has a history of traveling under a false name, and possibly a disguise. Manafort requires greater surveillance as he comfortably awaits trial at home. It’s possible that he is creating a new passport, and perfecting a new look purchased from a happy Trick or Treater.
While Conan does have a punchline, he leaves me to wonder why the present White House Press Secretary found it necessary to announce: “No one in the Trump administration supports slavery.”
