[ cheers ] i'm not saying villanova was cocky, but at halftime all five starters left for the nba. they already -- [ laughter ] they split, they already signed. they already got uniforms, everything. i saw that the philadelphia police greased up all of the street light poles -- in philly.
and all around campus ahead of the game to try to stop people from climbing the poles. [ light laughter ] that's interesting, i didn't realize that police officers were the ones that had to do that, but -- here's what a few philly officers said about it before the game. this one said "in anticipation of fans getting rowdy, we're optimizing security, especially on the villanova campus." while this officer said, "i grease the poles." the light poles. i greased the poles real good. [ laughter and applause ] then the first officer said, "well, we'll monitor the streets throughout the game and close off areas we feel are vulnerable to disruptive activity." and this officer said, "i greased the poles. with crisco, butter, oil, whatever can lubricate a pole, i'm a pole-luber, i lube the poles." [ cheers and applause ] just stop talking. then we're good. let's get to some news this week. president trump has been
sending angry tweets about amazon, for the way they run their business. and someone handed trump some bubble wrap from an amazon box and he forgot all about it. [ laughter and applause ] "oh, my god. oh, my god, this is amazing! can you hear it pop?" [ laughter ] but after trump attacked amazon on twitter, their stock fell by 5%. [ audience ohs ] it's all part of trump's plan to get amazon stock to match his approval rating. [ audience oohs ] [ laughter and applause ] i guess trump is claiming that amazon cost the u.s. postal service, too much money. trump loves the post office, except every time he licks a a stamp, he makes them sign a a nondisclosure agreement. so, you have to understand. [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: hey-oh! hey! >> jimmy: you gotta be -- better to be safe than sorry. >> steve: hey! >> jimmy: "make it go away! [ light laughter ] just make it go away." i saw that later this month, trump will host japan's prime minister, shinzo abe at mar-a-lago. if you don't remember, abe is the guy who did this after shaking hands with trump. watch this.
watch his face, yeah, he shook his hand, yeah. yeah. oh, boy. [ laughter and applause ] oh, ba-ba-ba-boy. all right, yeah. right, we got this over with? >> steve: oh! >> jimmy: uh! [ laughter ] >> steve: shinzo abe. >> jimmy: so trump doesn't want that to happen again. so he's been reading up on japanese culture to impress abe. he's even released a video. this is nice. take a look at this. >> being president of the united states, i've learned so much about japan. i can even use some of their most popular words. for example, "anime." i've fired several members of my cabinet, "an' i may" fire more. "sumo." i spoke to my lawyers and they said i can't afford to "sue mo' people" "udon." i tried to kiss melania but she said "ew, don." [ laughter ] and finally, "soba." my staffers say that working for me makes it hard to stay "soba'."

great. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: i saw that six of trump's cabinet members have been questioned about improper spending. trump was shocked, he said, "i still have six cabinet members? how is that possible?"
