you're here. we're live in new york city. hey. here's what people are talking about. of course, tonight president trump gave his big speech to congress. yeah. i saw that beforehand democrats came out with a prebuttal to counter some of trumps talking points. [ laughter ] a prebuttal. [ laughter ] they say that they know what trump is going to say before he says it. [ light laughter ] or as trump put it, "must be nice. i just open my mouth and the best words come out. i just -- [ laughter and applause ] i don't know what it is." now one of the big issues that was expected to come up was immigration. i saw that former iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad recently wrote a 3,500 word letter to trump criticizing his immigration policy. when asked if he read the letter, trump said, "i haven't even read my immigration policy. [ laughter and applause ] why would i read that? i have to finish -- words. just give me a mulligan on that one." [ laughter ]
listen to this, i saw that trump's new commerce secretary is the vice chairman of a bank that's owned by vladimir putin.

[ laughter and applause ] "what you are guys doing? [ laughter ] what are you guys doing? you guys having a meeting?"
[ laughter ] seems like trump's been breaking with a lot of traditions since he took office. there is speculation that president trump could cancel the annual white house easter egg roll. [ audience awws ] then he said, "actually i'm cancelling all egg rolls just to get back at china." [ laughter ] that's a different -- >> steve: different saying. >> jimmy: that's a totally different -- >> steve: yeah. that's different. >> jimmy: a different eggroll. >> steve: one is a food and one is an easter egg thing. >> jimmy: during a meeting with the nation's governors yesterday, trump was quoted as saying, nobody knew health care could be so complicated.
