Comedians lobbied to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on Wednesday night to stay on the Supreme Court until a new president is in office to keep President Trump from appointing his second pick to the court.

“Trump will likely replace [Kennedy] with a Justice who would discriminate and dismantle abortion rights and LGBTQ rights,” Trevor Noah said, “and that sound you’re hearing right now is Mike Pence having his first orgasm.”

Colbert pleaded directly with Kennedy, lamenting: “I never thought I’d say this, but you’re only 81!”

“When asked which judge he will choose, Trump said either Adam Levine or Blake Shelton,” Jimmy Fallon cracked. “’They’re both a little edgy, tough decisions.’”
