Late-Night Comedy Roundup: Snowden's Next Target—Pro Wrestling?

In the wake of the verdict in the trial regarding the death of Trayvon Martin, President Barack Obama spoke about race Friday after Jay Carney’s press briefing. Real Time host Bill Maher touched on this subject, mentioning that Obama’s words would resonate in certain places, but probably not in Florida. Maher also talked about Rolling Stone’s choice to put a photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover, mentioning that the line between psychopaths and Rolling Stone’s normal cover subjects is not that wide.
