Seth’s favorites:

From “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” the host’s favorite jokes of the week (Jan. 10):

› President Trump gave an address this morning in response to Iran’s retaliatio­n for his strike on a military leader. The address was Hillary Clinton’s [with image of a Chautauqua, New York, letterhead].

› Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle announced on Instagram this afternoon that they’re stepping away from the royal family and moving to Canada. Or, as it was reported in British tabloids, “Meghan Kidnaps Harry!”

› According to the latest numbers, former Vice President Joe Biden spent 11 days in Iowa last month. It was only supposed to be a weekend, but he got lost in a corn maze.

› A man in Florida was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly bit a police dog while naked and high on crystal meth. On the plus side, as a “Florida Man,” he’s already achieved his 2020 resolution.
