Hilarious Trump Video
Last night the Tonight Show ran a short but hilarious Trump video comprised of Trump clips put to song, I've positioned the video at that spot:

For Wayne's World Fans
The movie Bohemian Rhapsody opens today. In the mid-1970's the song itself was a spectacular hit in Great Britain, but it only had moderate success in the US where it rose only as far as No. 9 on Billboard's Hot 100.

In one scene of the movie Freddie Mercury threatens to walk out on a record company executive if he doesn't release Bohemian Rhapsody as the first single off the "A Night at the Opera" album. The executive is played by Mike Meyers, a casting choice made with purposeful irony because the film Wayne's World, released in 1992 and starring Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey, was responsible for introducing Bohemian Rhapsody to a new generation of American music fans. After the film's release Bohemian Rhapsody rose to No. 2 on the American charts.

Here for Wayne's World fans is that iconic scene:

As well, Mike Meyers had to fight to have Bohemian Rhapsody used as the song. The execs wanted a Guns 'N Roses song at the time.
Mike threatened to walk from the film... and they backed down and let him do the song.

Engagement ring

Added by edit:

OK - The image works for me apparently because I'm a logged in member at the site it's pulled from.

Can't find an alternative source, so I'll have to give you a verbal version of the joke.

It's a parody of a "He went to 'fill in jeweler's name'" advertisement, showing a woman's hands holding an open jewelry box containing a diamond engagement ring.

The version I tried posting here showed a woman's hands holding an open jewelry box containing a finger sized hose clamp, having the caption "He went to Napa".

To see much ritzier version of the concept, go to https://www.garagegirlsjewelry.com/product/hose-clamp-rings.
