( cheers and applause ) you can feel that. you can feel that. that's amazing-- that's-- that's-- only a live show is like that, right there. ( cheers and applause ) that's it. because the truth slook at that, we are-- we are live right now, and barely conscious following a 90-minute speech.
11:38 pm
there were some bright spots in this speech. there were really some heartwarming moments. some amazing people there were in the gallery. congressman steve scalise, who survived an attack on that softball field. a police officer who saved a baby, a young boy who's putting flags on soldiers' graves, and families who have gone through unspeakable tragedies. honestly, some of the most beautiful, most impressive americans you could imagine. and the president was there, too. ( laughter ) going into this, going into the evening, the bar, the bar for success was pretty low, okay. he just had to stay on script, no matter what. and he did, which was impressive, considering everything democrats did to distract him. there he is. now, go to the other angle, jim. that's not fair. that's not fair.
11:39 pm
here's one unusual thing we found out right before the speech-- the first lady travel to the speech in a separate car. i guess melania didn't want anything from the burger king drive-through. i could go for some onion rings. but when the president entered, the cameras caught melania looking radiantly... happy? the night began with one huge surprise-- trump was able to lift a glass with one hand! ( cheers and applause ) as part-- at the beginning of the speech, he listed some of the natural disasters we've endured this year. >> we have endured floods and fires and storms. >> stephen: and stormys! don't forget her ( laughter ) she was one of the most expensive disasters for you, personally. and he reached out to those still recovering. >> to everyone still recovering in texas, florida, louisiana,
11:40 pm
puerto rico, and the virgin islands-- everywhere-- we are with you, we love you, and we always will pull through together, always >> stephen: that is going to be a comforting message to people of puerto rico, once they have electricity to turn on their tvs. ( cheers and applause ) still a million people, right? a million people in puerto rico still don't have power. and he followed up on that inn separational tone. >> if there is a mountain, we climb it. if there is a frontier, we cross it. if there is a challenge, we tame it. if there is an opportunity, we seize it. >> stephen: "if there's a burger, we eat it. ( laughte if there is a porn star, we bone it. ( laughter ) if there's an immigrant, we deport it. if there's an investigation, we undermine it." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) "i believe that. i believe that with all
11:41 pm
whatever's in here." and he boasted about creating minority jobs. >> african-american unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. >> stephen: well, there was one time when african american unemployment was at zero, but only half of trump's base wants to go back there. bit-- i said half! -- but-- with stats like that, you have to imagine african american leaders must have been pretty impressed. and i stand corrected. all right, my mistake. the speech was a huge hit with republicans. just look how excited mitch mcconnell was. actually, that's not fair. i believe we do have footage of mcconnell more excited. ( laughing ) >> stephen: so happy! so happy! just dancing a shoe! just dancing with a shoe.
11:42 pm
he'll find cinderella eventually. ( laughter ) and trump took time to boast about his new tax plan. >> to lower tax rates for hardworking americans, we nearly doubled the standard deduction for everyone. ( applause ) now the first $24,000 earned by a married couple is completely tax-free. >> stephen: a benefit trump will be enjoying for a few more weeks, at least. once again, once again-- who knows. they'll make it to april 15. once again, he inspired with his soaring words. >> all of us together as one team, one people, and one american family can do anything. >> stephen: yes, "one" american family can do anything: promote
11:43 pm
your shoe brand, use your relationship to the president to sell real estate in china-- anything. plus, plus-- ( applause ) yes. give it up for the trumps. give it up. family values. plus, he went to an old american favorite: >> we all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great american flag. >> stephen: really? because down in charlottesville i saw your supporters carrying two other flags. ( laughter ) i'm pretty sure. i saw that. i saw that, didn't i? >> jon: ♪ yeah, i saw it >> stephen: one of them had a spider on it or something. i'm not sure. if but trump gave it up for the american way. >> in america, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the american life. ( applause ) our motto is "in god we trust."
11:44 pm
>> stephen: yes, that's the first half. the second half is "oh, god, make this stop." and i pray-- i pray, lord. what did we do? we're sorry. and he touted his fossil fuel energy policy. >> we have ended the war on american energy, and we have ended the war on beautiful, clean coal. >> stephen: "god, it is so beautiful. that coal has a high, tight, saa. i tell you, if i weren't burning it, i might be dating it." but circ seriously, seriously, sir-- war on clean coal? you can't start or end a war on something that doesn't exist. "soon we'll end the wars on sasquatches, unicorns, and
11:45 pm
moderate republicans." ( cheers and applause ) "anybody find one? did you find one? no? put down a little trap with, like, a muffin in it." ♪ ♪ the president then renewed-- thank you, jon-- renewed his attack on government workers. >> so tonight, i call on the congress to empower ever the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the american people. >> stephen: whoever they are, be they the director or the assistant director of the f.b.i, even a specialprosecutor-- out." >> jon: oh, wow, wow. >> stephen: you know i'm imitating him, right? ( laughter ) we're all-- we're all friends here. i think. for now. and he hit one of his favorite themes on healthcare. >> one of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of
11:46 pm
prescription drugs. >> stephen: oh, good. drugs would have really have helped me get through this speech. and he called-- as we knew he would, as we knew he would. drugs! we love drugs! and he called for more jobs, jobs, jobs. >> we want every american to know the dignity of a hard day's work. >> stephen: "then they can tell me about it when i get home from golf. eye hear great things about work." and he laid out-- he laid out-- he laid out what americans deserved. >> americans love their country, and they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return. >> stephen: "and if their government isn't that loyal with their love, they get
11:47 pm
$130,000 to keep quiet about it." i'm not sure, does the love-- allegedly, allegedly. and he looked back on his administration's work over the past year. >> for the last year, we have sought to restore the bonds of trust between our citizens and their government. >> stephen: well, better luck next year. ( laughter ) but, in that vein, trump did try to unify. >> so tonight, i am extending an open hand >> stephen: god, women! get out of there! run for your lives! open hand. ( cheers and applause ) and trump lauded his immigration policies as good for everyone. >> struggling communities, especially immigrant communities, will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of american workers and american families.
11:48 pm
>> stephen: yes, trump understands the problem facing struggling immigrant communities: too many immigrants? i don't... let's move on. ( laughter ) and he outlined just who he doesn't want in america. >> under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives. ( boos ) under our plan, we focus on the immediate family. >> stephen: yeah, boo... families? i'm not sure, but i think trump's immigration plan is hot singles only! and he spoke-- >> jon: oh, wow. >> stephen: he spoke-- some single people here tonight. some hot singles in the house. ( cheers and applause ) waiting for your call. and he spoke of threats around the world. >> around the world, we face rogue regimes, terrorist groups,
11:49 pm
and rivals like china and russia that challenge our interests, our economy, and our values. >> stephen: "and we will stop them anyway we can, except implementing the russia sanctions you guys voted for. hi, vlad." ( laughter ) "i killed it. i killed the whole thing, 98-2, i cut it." but he spoke out strongly against terrorist actors. >> terrorists who do things like place bombs in civilian hospitals are evil. >> stephen: where does he find the courage to call people who bomb hospitals evil? truly, today, donald trump became president of the united states. ( applause ) and he got tough with the terrorists. >> when possible, we have no choice but to annihilate them. when necessary, we must be able to detain and question them.
11:50 pm
>> stephen: you know, after we annihilate them. ( laughter ) that's our motto: annihilate first, realize we can't ask dead guys questions later. and he spoke to america's colonial past. >> it was that same yearning for freedom that nearly 250 years ago gave birth to a special place called america. it was a small cluster of colonies caughbetween a grea ocean and a vast wilderness >> stephen: "with no people in it. just waiting for real estate developers. okay. i don't know why the arapaho didn't put up condos. beautiful land. could have put up a casino then." of course, trump did not mention the russia investigation. he hopes that goes away. but, i mean, even if the president and his campaign aides members of his family, were convicted of conspiracy
11:51 pm
with a hostile foreign power, where would we send them? >> in many cases, for them, it will now be guantanamo bay. >> stephen: oh, good. at least he's got a plan. we have a great show for you n the state of the union with the fellas from "pod save america," and the 2 dope queens. stick around, won't you? live! ♪ ♪

11:57 pm
speechwriters, wrote for obama and hillary clinton. as a speechwriter, how challenge signature state of the union? is this, like, your super bowl. >> it sucks. >> stephen: what sucks about it? >> because it's so long and you have to get everything in there. like, i think a president should give, some day, a 20-minute speech on one single issue, and just spare us all the words. >> stephen: but it's the state of the union. it's supposed to be, like, an umbrella, cover everything. >> it covers everything, and becomes a lawnry list of every policy in the government. >> yeah, it's very boring. one of the feature s. >> stephen: and it was the third long nest history at 90 minutes. bill clinton beat it twice. ( laughter ) so bill clinton has the one and the two spot, okay, and then-- yes? >> no, it's amazing. it was the third longest, but it was almost half the length of bill clinton's longest speeches. he made-- >> his delivery was slow. >> 55 hundred words. he made it last 90 minutes.
11:58 pm
>> stephen: he started to fade toward the end. it almost seemed somebody should pull the string in his back one more time. >> john kelly was trying. >> john kelly gave make pence-- john kelly did give mike pence the official cattle prod. >> stephen: to keep him going. >> people don't know this-- it's one the one night of the year it's not in his possession with trump. he couldn't get a moment. >> stephen: there was an emphasis on bipartisanship going in and a nod to it here or there within the speech, as democrats and democratics operativize don't know what that word means. it makes it sound like hit men. did you feel reached out to in any way? >> i don't know how you attack a speech and divorce it from an entire year of actions. so they spent 15 minutes-- ( cheers and applause ) the big-- the big debate right now is about whether to prevent the deportation of 800,000 kids who are american. and he spent 15 minutes talking
11:59 pm
about immigrants in the context of gangs killing people. so i don't know that that's anything but divisive. ( applause ) >> stephen: that did seem like an odd-- that seemed like an odd entree to the question of immigration is to focus just on-- on gangs. >> yeah. >> stephen: well, let's talk about-- well, international affairs. tommy, you worked as obama's national security spokesman. how do you think this speech will be perceived overseas? because there are polls that say that the united states has taken a hit in terms of its stature, and certainly the united states presidency has taken a hit in terms of its stature around the world. do you think this this will do anything to help with that? >> he talked about, in the context of arms control, this magic moment one day when countries might put down their nuclear weapons. back in the day with ronald reagan it was called diploamas, and you negotiated and had arms control agreements. he also talked about north
12:00 am
korea, but if you pick up "the washington post" tomorrow, his desig me, with was withdrawn because he opposed a strike on north korea because he feared it could start a nuclear war. i don't know if you will pick up the paper and feel great about that speech because of the context out there. >> stephen: i haven't read this story. you're saying the ambassador to south korea, proposed, has been pulled, his nomination has been removed by the white house because he thinks that attacking a nuclear power might start a nuclear war. >> it's this policy they call a "punch in the nose strategy" saying if we pop north korea in the nose, they'll chill out and not fight us. >> sounds good, doesn't it. >> it sounds good on paper. >> stephen: that's a great way to calm down a crazy person-- bing! we're done. we're even. we're even. is there anything-- is there anything about the speech that you agreed with? is there anything that, to be fair, you say that is something
12:01 am
to be supportable and nonpartisan for a moment, if you can, you pinkos. >> no, i mean, he talked about criminal justice reform, but he's not going to do anything about that because he's talked about it before and he's had a year and hasn't done anything about it. >> stephen: he might have a reason coming up to make prisons a lot nicer. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) at least for his family. at least for his family. >> he talked about prescription drugs, but he talked about that last year and, you know, he's not going to do anything about that, either. it's hard to divorce the speech from, you know, what he's done for a year. >> sa.>> state of the unions ony matter-- you couldn't tell us your favorite lines from obama's state of the union air, couple of jokes. we don't remember. but they matter because they sit between what came before and what came after. donald trump said he wants to take on the ethiopia addiction but for the of last year, he tried to cut medicaid by $1 million. jeff sessions is the reason we don't have criminal justice reform right now.
12:02 am
he's one of the key voices in the senate that prevented a vote on that before he became attorney general. he talks about unity, after he implied that kneeling during the anthem is unpatriotic, even though it's a protest, people demonstrating their civil rights. and, by the way, he talks about reaching out to democrats. he's never apologized for any of it. you don't get to stand up there and pretend that the last year didn't happen. you don't get to pretend it's only people that don't-- ( cheers and applause ) the only people that-- in that room, the only people in that room that don't care whether or not donald trump apologizes are people like ted cruz, who just supplicated themselves for this guy who called his wife ugly and said his dad killed j.f.k., and he's like, "oh, this guy, he's the master." so give me a break. ( cheers and applause ) >> we're still on the fence. >> stephen: still on the fence. >> we're still on the fence. >> stephen: well, ted cruz is our first inverterate senator. that's diversity right there. there anything about his communication style, as professional communicators,
12:03 am
anything about his communication style, "okay, yeah, he's good at that?" >> not the way he spoke tonight. tonight he did the "i'm reading a hostage statement" kind of delivery. >> stephen: he was blinking out. >> he wasn't allowed to use his twitter voice, you know. so he just looked like he was reading a speech for the first time. >> trump's genius is he drives a news cycle for weeks at a time. but a very smart reporter wrote a piece today saying nothing in the speech will be rememberable because of a trump tweet. >> and very few references to his opponents' menstrual cycle, which is a key part of his brand and identity. >> stephen: i understand, i understand. what about the democratic response? what about joe kennedy iii? is it iii at this point? i didn't get a chance to watch his. >> i think he did really well. i think it's such a tough job to have, the response, the state of the union. no one wants that job. >> stephen: it's an honor. >> it's ruined more politicians

12:12 am
>> stephen: that's how she kept looking so young. she knew she was going to be on the bill. >> don't bring me into this. it's so disrespectful. >> stephen: the reason i don't lotion is because even if i get ashy, you can't tell. i am the color of ash, i am so pale. >> that is true. >> stephen: no, absolutely. i'm the picture of "white guy" in the dictionary. >> you're also the picture of zatty. >> stephen: what's a zatty? >> you don't know what zaty is? >> it's a hot dude. if you're not a dad, but you're also hot, you can be a zaddy. >> but i'm a dad. >> zaddy has more attitude-- "he's a zady." >> stephen: i had no idea. i will say this-- ( cheers and applause ) i-- i-- i really don't understand, but i'm honored. >> good. >> we -- >> stephen: there's something about the way you're saying it that i really like. >> we dressed up for you.

( laughter ) ( applause ) we have it now! we have it! >> hair and makeup budget -- >> stephen: they don't pay for themselves. >> they don't. but it was really great working with hbo. we started "2 dope queens," because we started working together and realized when we were doing these live shows that we really enjoyed each other and had a lot of chemistry. so we thought what if we created this podcast where we have different stand-ups and storytellers that we love on the show, and they are all, like, either people of color or someone's a woman or a member of the lgbt community. we feel we are supporting characters and other people's
