Late Night spotlighted the female writers responding to Harvey Weinstein's apology statements over charges of sexual harassment. Via Vulture:

Unfortunately, instead of reading zippy one-liners to a wildly cackling Hillary, the women of Late Night had the much more arduous task of milking laughs from producer Harvey Weinstein’s apology statement, which he released after the New York Times revealed multiple instances of sexual-harassment he allegedly perpetrated on employees, actresses and, according to recent accusations, women he just ran into at various restaurants and bars. An arduous task to be sure, though the women of Late Night did come up with a punchline we can all agree on: [long continuous horrified spit take.]
