Late-night TV made headlines this week, with Stephen Colbert's blistering takedown of President Trump — that included what some considered to be a homophobic joke about Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin — and Jimmy Kimmel's emotional story about his son being born with congenital heart disease.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) about why both monologues (watch below) caused such a stir.

This segment aired on May 5, 2017.
