“Wow, that is shocking. I mean, how could you not trust the guy who said heat would kill the coronavirus, that cases would go down to zero, that it will go away in April, that a vaccine would come out soon, that hydroxychloroquine could be a gift from heaven, and that it could be cured by eating Lysol wipes out of a salad bowl with a fork and a knife?” — SETH MEYERS
“There’s a fine dining establishment in Virginia, a very fancy restaurant called The Inn at Little Washington that has a plan for reopening. You know, social distancing will probably mean a lot of empty tables, which isn’t great ambience wise, so the owner of this restaurant is putting mannequins in the empty seats to make it feel full. For real — it’s like a whole restaurant full of Jared Kushners.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“The chef at the restaurant said, ‘I’ve always had a thing for mannequins.’ Really? We never would have guessed that.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“So, finally, if you live in the area, you can enjoy a three-star Michelin meal in the storage room at ‘Westworld.’” — JIMMY KIMMEL
