“Donald Trump has a great campaign slogan: ‘A complex world demands complex hair.'” – David Letterman

“Political experts are saying NBC should take ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ off the air because if Trump runs for president, he could use it as an unfair platform. Because nothing says ‘leader of the free world’ like someone who can’t stop a fight between Meat Loaf and Gary Busey.” – Conan O’Brien

“Canada may postpone an important political debate because it may conflict with a hockey game. An entire nation is willing to put democracy on hold to watch burly guys smash each other in the face. That is awesome.” – Craig Ferguson

“Hosni Mubarak was arrested near the Red Sea. They found him in hiding with his two sons, Hosni W. and Jeb.” – David Letterman

“They were interrogating Mubarak and he had a heart attack. There’s nothing more stressful than being an out-of-work dictator.” – David Letterman

“A meeting between Justin Bieber and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has been canceled. No word yet on how this will affect the meeting between Selena Gomez and Hezbollah.” – Conan O’Brien
