The Batman Pope: Late-Night Comedy Roundup

Plus: “Pope Francis announces that on Tuesdays ladies get into heaven for free,” GOP says racism is over—and more.

The Republican National Committee commemorates Rosa Parks via Twitter—and simultaneously declares that racism is dead. The Grand Old Party does it all in just 140 characters.
