Late Night: Smash and Grab

By: Thursday June 19, 2014 8:00 pm

I hope everyone is sitting down; another “bold” Republican governor and 2016 presidential hopeful has landed himself in (worse) legal trouble. Chris Christie? No, that’s every day. This time, it’s that hilariously corrupt and goofy automaton from Wisconsin, Scott Walker.
