[ cheers and applause ] thank you! thank you for being here. hot crowd. this is fun. well, here's what -- here's what people are talking about,
you guys. tomorrow is the presidential inauguration. yeah. [ audience groans ] people -- [ laughter ] people from all across country will be there. but don't worry if you can't make it, because the president will be live tweeting the whole thing. so this -- [ cheers and applause ] live the whole time. actually, i read that donald trump apparently wrote a a draft of his inauguration speech himself. a little worried though, because while he was writing, he kept yelling to his secretary, "is boobs spelled with two os or three?" [ laughter and applause ] "booooooobs." now trump likes writing everything by hand and he actually threw away some lines for his speech that he decided not to use. well, we got a hold of some of them. >> steve: really? [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. at "the tonight show", i don't know how we -- >> steve: wow. how'd you do that? >> jimmy: i don't know how we did, but we just got it. >> steve: that's crazy. >> jimmy: yeah. >> steve: security is lax! >> jimmy: so check these out -- [ light laughter ] this first line trump threw away, was "four score and seven bankruptcies ago." [ laughter and applause ] you don't want to open with
that. >> steve: no. that's not a good opener. >> jimmy: then he tried, "read my lips. no new taxes -- for me." [ laughter and applause ] and finally he tried, "dwight d. eisenhower said, 'any man who wants to be president is either an egomaniac or crazy' and to that i say, why not both?" [ applause ] so i can't wait to see what he ends up using. he's very exciting. >> steve: win-win. >> jimmy: get this. i read that one of the djs at donald trump's inauguration celebration used to be hugh hefner's personal dj. yeah. when asked how he became a dj for both hugh hefner and donald trump, he said, "i'm not a very good dj." [ laughter and applause ] if you must know. and this concerned a few people here. the "new york times" said that after being nominated for energy secretary, rick perry apparently didn't know that meant he'd be in charge of america's nuclear weapons. yeah. not great for -- [ light laughter ] not great for a man who's most famous for saying this --
>> oops. >> jimmy: yeah i -- [ laughter and applause ] no. no oops. oops? but this is interesting. donald trump has reportedly asked 50 senior obama officials to stay under his administration. that's right, they include national security adviser, brett mcgurk. dea official, chuck rosenberg. and president barack obama. and he's just like -- [ cheers and applause ] "i'll come by -- i'll come by once a week and check in. you take care of it. thank you, barack." [ light laughter ] this is kind of nice. i read that donald trump's daughter ivanka recently spoke with michelle obama and the conversation lasted a whole hour. finally michelle was like, "okay, ivanka. i'll buy the damn purse." [ laughter ] "just give it to me. give it to me. give it to me. all right." guys listen to this. i read that denver is attempting to become the first city in the u.s. to allow marijuana in all public places. [ cheers ] you could tell by -- [ applause ] you could tell by some of the signs they're putting up at local establishments. here, take look at this sign from a mall. it says, "you are here, but, like, where am i?"
