How Late Night Handled Trump’s Physical

Tuesday night, checking late-night television for vital signs and symbols, I began with “Conan” (TBS), where an angsty Conan O’Brien wandered a redesigned stage set. “Ladies and gentlemen, it’s very collapsed,” he said, in a prelude to celebrating a new intimacy with the studio audience.
