Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. Here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.

Another One

New York State’s attorney general, Letitia James, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday accusing former President Donald J. Trump and three of his children of what she called a “staggering” amount of fraud.

“I don’t know, that doesn’t sound like the Donald Trump I know,” Jimmy Kimmel joked.

“This lawsuit outlines 200 false and misleading valuations of Trump’s assets, which of course, fraud is who he is. Charging Donald Trump with fraud is like charging Lizzo with juice — it’s his essence.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“I’d say he needs a good lawyer, but that’s been true for a while now.” — SETH MEYERS

“Something tells me his supporters are about to get a bunch of frantic emails that say, ’President Trump needs your help to prove the election was stolen. Click here to donate $1, $5 or $250 million!’” — SETH MEYERS

“For instance, Mar-a-Lago was worth $75 million. And what did Trump say it was worth? $740 million. How? ‘[imitating Trump] Because I upgraded it, folks. Yeah, totally upgraded. I added a rec room. It’s got a foosball table and everything.’” — TREVOR NOAH

“I’ve got to say, it would be so funny if this is what takes Trump down, huh? Can you imagine, he tried to overthrow the government, but then they get him for lying about having an in-unit washer-dryer?” — TREVOR NOAH

“Trump was like, ‘Technically, with all the classified documents, it is worth $739 million.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“Yep, $739 million, almost 10 times the actual value. Trump was going to put down $740 million, but he didn’t want to arouse suspicion.” — JIMMY FALLON

“It’s like I always say, the family that colludes together gets sued together.” — JAMES CORDEN

The Punchiest Punchlines (Inflated Assets Edition)

“Yes, Trump exaggerated the size of his wealth, his apartment, and his properties. It’s the first time he’s ever lied about how big something is, other than his inauguration crowd, his vote total and his night with Stormy Daniels.” — JIMMY FALLON

“Even worse, he listed himself as 6’7” on his Tinder profile.” — SETH MEYERS

“And it’s no surprise — the president is known for inflated assets.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“You can tell Trump is worried because he just asked Ron DeSantis to fly him somewhere random in the middle of the night.” — JIMMY FALLON

Olivia Wilde cleared up rumors around her new directorial effort, “Don’t Worry Darling,” while on Wednesday’s “Late Show.”
