The Best Late Night Clips of the Week (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

Posted: 05/26/2012 11:04 am

Mitt Romney launched his major general election ad campaign this week and the late night hosts (minus the still on vacation Stewart and Colbert) were there to brutally make fun of him.

In other news, Newark Mayor Cory Booker became the Obama campaign's #1 enemy and Donald Trump re-inserted himself into the national conversation.

These stories and more fueled this week's late night shows. Below are my favorite clips of the week. What were yours?
