8:00 pm
money, as apoised to the dea agents who preferred to put money on the women. so much to talk about this year. of course, the big story, the republicans finally succeeded, and obama is being forced out of office in 18 months. you did it. and there are so many great people who have announced they're running for president. it's like, who should i even vote for? hillary. who is better than marco rubio? hillary. and rand paul, who is more knowledgeable about foreign policy than rand paul? hillary. and hillary, who is better on economy than hillary? bill. hillary's campaign slogan is, it's your time, which i assume is what she says into a mirror when she's dead lifting 200 pounds. i'm excited about hillary running. i'm not sure if she's excited
8:01 pm
about having to run. i think she feels the same way meryl streep feels when she's asked to audition for something. are you kidding me? making me go through this. you know i'm going to win. all right, guys. now, this next part is the repeat after me. so i need your help here. i want all the media to put their hands up and swear something this election season. okay? i solemnly swear not to talk about hillary's appearance because that is not journalism. also, cecily strong looks great tonight. now, i don't want you to take any of this as an endorsement for hillary clinton because i would never blindly indorse a character i don't play on "snl."
8:02 pm
but hillary clinton has her work cut out for her. her democrat challengers are a who's who of who's that. jim webb, lincoln chasy, peter wilk. those last two were characters from the adventures of huckleberry fin, but you didn't even notice, did you? how about that. and let's not forget martin o'malley. i don't have anything to add. that's just his actual campaign slogan. let's not forget martin o'mal y o'malley. lincoln chavy is thinking about entering the president. that's like watching a dog look for his dead owner. like oh, he doesn't know. a lot of people thought elizabeth warren to run for president, but many think she's too idelistach.
8:03 pm
but look at president obama, a lot of people thought the same thing about him, and he didn't end up doing any of that stuff. now, the republican field is idealogically diverse, including people like ted cruz, a tea partier, and rand paul, who is a libertarian, and even people like chris christie, who's a democrat. jeb bush is probably in the race. the presidential race, not the hispanic race. that was just an accident. by the way, jeb is actually an acronym for jon ellis bush. i guess he thought that sounded too elitist so he way overcompensated. kind of like if benedict cumberbatch decided to go by peter. marco rubio is running for president. when jub bush found out, he said, ay, dios mio. marco rubio makes mitt romney
8:04 pm
seem relaxed on the air. i hope he gets comfortable in front of a camera before he has to go on tv to indorse jeb. that one, chris christie has said if he's elected president, he would crack down on states that legalize marijuana because he believes marijuana is a gatewgate way drug. so like a bridge to other drugs, and he wants to shut down that bridge? new poll shows chris christie's approval ratings in new jersey are at an all-tie low. the only thing they approve of last is, quote, that dominican guy who saved his sister. ted cruz, it's like the right wings thought, what's the exact opposite of a black president? how about a canadian latino who will never be president? not true. he was born in canada, a child of cuban immigrants. i kind of can't believe he
8:05 pm
wasn't in hillary's announcement video. kylie farina is considering running for president. seems like a lot of work to be a fox news pundit. rand paul has announced he's taking over the families not being president business. and yes, that's rand, as in he didn't get elected, but at least he rand. paul is a libertarian, which if you're unfamiliar, a libertarian is just a republican you have to block on twitter. rand paul's campaign slogan is, defeat the washington machine, unleash the american dream. the american dream, of course, is the model name of rand paul's wig. well, enough talk about 2016. let's talk about the most important person in the room, my leader. the person i'm so glad is in the white house, michelle obama.
8:06 pm
michelle, you take care of that garden while you can, because in 18 months, you know bill is turning that thing into an above-ground pool. but seriously, michelle obama, what an amazing woman. a harvard educated lawyer. a fierce advocate for lgbt rights, and the founder of the let's move campaign to combat childhood obesity. it's a dream to sit next to you, but it's a nightmare to eat next to you. actually, i have a confession. you know when i got up to go to the bathroom for like 20 minutes? i hid a cheese pizza behind a tollt in there and i ate it. sorry. and of course, mr. president. thank you so much for taking time away from being on jimmy kimmel to be here. it's amazing to be seating with the president having this fancy dinner, and i know this must
8:07 pm
have cost a ton of food stamps, so thank you. i can say that because a lot of you probably don't know this, but president obama and i actually grew up together in chicago. i remember when we used to go down to the cabrini green basketball courts. i would lift up a pair of jordans. he would slip on a pair of my mom's jeans and we would just miss three pointers until sundown, when of course, we would have to stop and pray to mecca. but those were simpler times. now you've got problems with congress, with putin, with israel. you said it yourself, we can't solve these problems by holding hands and singing cume by yeah. that's the village in africa where the president was born. am i saying that right, cume biyeah? after six years in office, your approval rating is alt 48%. not only that, your gray hair is
8:08 pm
at 85%. your hair is so white now, it can talk back to the police. we'll high five about that later. president obama, i bet you wish you were coming into office in 2016 instead of 2008. probably should have let hillary fix the economy for the last ate years and it could be you running away from her successful presidency. you know, mr. president, you probably get this a lot, but you're a lot like madonna. you both have given this country so much, but in like a year and a half, you got to stop. mr. president, it was a true honor to be here tonight. and thank you to the white house correspondents association, whatever that is. but i have to finish up because the exterminators need to get into this room. got a pizza to finish.
8:09 pm
thank you so much, and good night. >> all right. cecily strong wrapping. that was a pretty wrong one. she went to the better half of a half hour. >> it was, you know, it was very gutsy. as a fellow comedian, i give her a lot of credit. she was poised, gutsy. she ran into the trouble where she did bits the president had already done. she talked about the joe biden, indiana pizza, secret service, being a muslim. africa. she had a lot of good stuff. i think it went a little long, and i think, you know, there were some -- she said she didn't want to be mean. there were some uncomfortable moments. and i think it may be playing much better at this moment to a different kind of audience. i think she did well. it was gutsy and hit or miss. >> let's look at something the president talked about. that was the anger translator.
8:10 pm
that was quite unique. as you were saying, that's probably going to get a lot of buzz. hearing republicans talk about it and otherwise. let's take a look at that. >> luther, my anger translator, to join me here tonight. >> hold on to your lily white butts. >> in our fast changing world, traditions like the white house correspondents dinner are important. >> i mean, really. what is this dinner? and why am i required to come to it? jeb bush. do you really want to do this? >> because despite our difference, we count on the press to shed light on the most important issues of the day. >> and we can count on fox news to terrify old white people with some nonsense. >> i just love the president in that. i loved watching him, just that
8:11 pm
straight face. >> for cecily, it's a hard act to follow, not only the president, but keegan michael cay up there. it's a hard act to follow. >> i want to give a shoutout to cecily. a good, strong woman in that role. >> pointed material. she did credit to that. it was almost not like a primetime show, but a late night show. >> they told us not to talk about hillary's appearance, and i agree with that. >> hey, listen, dually noted, my thanks to all of you. you have been fantastic. this was a lot of fun. >> have a good one, every. we'll be back after this short break. you're like "nothing can replace brad!" then liberty mutual calls. and you break into your happy dance. if you sign up for better car replacement, we'll pay for a car that's a model year newer with 15,000 fewer miles than your old one. see car insurance in a whole new light.

8:14 pm
the endless... stillness of green... [♪] [♪] and in the restless depths of human hearts... [♪] the voice of the wild within. [♪] i never really had a routine. i kind of took it the way it came and worked for myself. so i did that. in here, i guess it's good to
8:15 pm
get a routine. so you've got to try to make the best of it. and not really try to think of where you're at or you'll go insane, drive yourself crazy. and i've seen that happen. it's not nice. >> hold on to him. >> this morning, came into work and i saw that we had an incident over the weekend where a couple of counselors got assaulted. i started looking at the video over on our "f" dorm. when you see a scuffle here, and one man is now down right there. i have a master lock that was turned in, that was in the possession of offender buchanan. most likely this padlock was used as a weapon involved in that assault. >> we're hearing mr. buchanan today. he assaulted two staff members. we're going to hear him and get a plea on him and make a decision and see if he'll give us any comments on it because he's on the psych unit, it means i have to go to him and hear the
8:16 pm
case. they'll bring him out in cuffs and we'll do it there. >> but joe buchanan might have different plans. >> hey, joe, we want to take you back here in the back. >> i ain't going. >> come on, joe. >> i want to plead guilty. >> you don't want to come out, then? >> no. >> all right. i'll let them know. >> let me talk to him for a second. buchanan, you don't want to change your plea or anything? do you want to give a statement? >> i'm guilty. >> okay. i'll come back and let you know what we did, then. >> you can just write it down, all right? >> okay. i accepted his plea of guilty. i'm going to give him a year in seg starting on the 19th. and he's a lifer. so there's nothing else that we can really do to him. so now i'm going to go back and tell him what i did. mr. buchanan, you know you got a year in idu, right? i will tell them know that you can be moved and you know you can appeal this. >> i ain't going to appeal
8:17 pm
nothing. >> all right, thank you. >> for ricky beauchamp, it's time to make a different transition. his release date is rapidly approaching and the prison wants to make sure he's ready. >> this is the re-entry pre-release class. we'll give you lessons on reentering the community. things have changed a lot since you've been here. so we need to make sure we understand the laws and everything concerning sexual harassment. >> male and female? >> yes, absolutely. >> it goes both ways? >> it applies to both. >> it's not a double standard now? >> no. >> i'm going to ask you some questions and you give me the answer, true or false. if a woman dresses or behaves in a sexy way, she is asking to be sexually harassed? >> false. >> false.
8:18 pm
>> are those your thoughts or do you have other thoughts aside from that? >> i don't. >> saying no is usually enough to stop sexually harassment. >> should be true. >> it's actually false because sometimes harassers don't really think that no really means no. no means no, not yes or maybe. it don't mean come back later or tomorrow. it means no right now. >> what if they're persistent? >> then you tell them, no. no means no. >> what if they don't take no for an answer? >> give me a scenario. are you on the job? >> okay, look, if i go to him and ask him for something, and he tells me no. 10, 15 minutes, i go back and ask for the cup of coffee. says no. >> that's just begging. >> after his release, beauchamp will need to navigate his way around women outside the
8:19 pm
workplace as well. he's recently renewed an old relationship. >> i said, hello, how are you? i'm fine. i'm just doing the same old [ bleep ] for real. it's a letter i wrote to my friend that i ain't seen after 20 years. i can't wait to see you after so long. i don't think i have changed much. i'm not little no more. i'm a grown man now. i want you to let me know when you're coming. i think she wants to be the first one to make up for lost time. that's a good way to put it without being too explicit. you're on the visiting list. when you come up, we can kiss, we can hug. we can hold hands. we can't get freaky. no, but we can hug and kiss and touch each other. you've got a picture of me, but i ain't seen you in 23 years. you ain't lost the curves, though, have you? that's a good thing.
8:20 pm
black dolly parton, huh? don't wear nothing too revealing because they won't let you in. okay? there you go. i'm gonna get up there, sweetheart. write me, all right? i'll see you on monday. love you, too, sweetie. bye-bye. that was a decent little conversation. >> beauchamp can see the light at the end of his tunnel. >> it was all right. >> you all right? >> but john philbeck's tunnel is about to get darker. like beauchamp, philbeck is a cutter. >> what instrument did you use to create that cut? >> a razor blade. cutting it down this side here and that side there to the bone. i took the razor and bowled it
8:21 pm
and cut the whole middle out, all the way down to the bone. there was nothing but a big hole there. i ain't got no feeling here no more. >> only days away from being transferred from the residential treatment unit to a general population dorm, philbeck has run into a problem. >> apparently he had an incident on our rtu today, said someone walked into his cell and destroyed some of his property and became threatening. >> i went to him, i said, i'm coming to you before anything jumps off. >> i'm glad you did that. >> i wanted to come out and cut him. i was going to do that today but i didn't. i let it go. >> thanks for making a good decision. better this than all that. i know how much damage you can do, so i'm glad you took another
8:22 pm
road. what we're going to do is bring him upstairs, let him stay up on "g" dorm for the weekend, sort out what went on monday. either way, we'll probably get him out to "e" dorm. he was in phase 2. we wanted to get him out there anyway. now he's ready to go. so it works out. coming up, it doesn't take long for philbeck's patience to be put to the test once more. and another inmate's patience seems to have a sinister side. >> if i got a problem with somebody, i'm just going to be patient until i get a chance to put my hands on him and then i'm gonna whoop his ass. ♪ but mindy was actually not invisible. ooh, what are you doing? can you see me? she had just always been treated that way. yeah.

♪ after a conflict with another inmate, john philbeck is scheduled to be transferred from indiana state prison's residential treatment unit to "g" dorm, but there's a snag. >> how long will i be in here? i don't know.
8:26 pm
i'm hoping it ain't going to be long. even if i have to hurt myself to get out of here, i'll do it. because i cannot stand being in this cell for a long time. >> while waiting for a bed to open up, philbeck has been moved to a temporary holding cell next to an inmate experiencing a psychiatric episode. >> [ bleep ]! >> in spite of his neighbor, philbeck has seemingly made peace with the situation. >> on the psych unit, if you act on everything that they do, you'll be fighting every day. >> officers eventually remove the other inmate. but philbeck has received some bad news. his transfer to a dormitory housing unit where he will have more privileges has been delayed. >> i just found out today that there's no beds open in "e" or "a." so i'm stuck for a while.
8:27 pm
>> like philbeck, rudy gonzalez is not only a self-cutter but he's been attacked by other inmates as well. >> will you lift that up for me, please? that long scar is a self-inflicted wound that i did a while back. it healed up, but one of my enemies got mad and decided to throw hot water on me. what it did, it opened my scar back up. every day i go to the hospital, they change the bandage, clean it up, that type of stuff. >> we caught up with gonzalez again after he returned from the hospital. >> i could have retaliated, threw some stuff back on him. but i'm not that type of person. i don't throw boiling water, feces, throw urine. i don't do that stuff.

if i have a problem with somebody, i'm just going to be patience until i get a chance to put my hands on him and then i'm gonna whoop his ass. >> gonzalez's behavior in prison has destroyed any chance of an early release. >> i had a bad temper problem. i regret it, i really do. there's one thing i finally realized, i'm not doing this time alone. my family's doing it with me. and i'm hurting them more than i'm hurting myself. they're out there missing me like crazy, especially my daughter. >> now only a few weeks away from his release date, gonzalez must not only try to stay out of trouble, he must also control his compulsion to cut. >> sometimes the physical pain wipes away the emotional pain, at least for the time being anyway. that's one reason. another reason is there might be a situation going on where we're trying to holler at the c.o. or sergeant and they want to ignore us. we cut ourselves and then we scream out there and say, i cut myself, i'm bleeding. then they hurry up and get back here.
8:29 pm
coming up, with his release only days away, rudy gonzalez cuts again. >> when i did that, oh, i got everybody's attention then, everybody in that [ bleep ] room wanted to talk to me. ine. see, you just pull like this to go left. and like so to go right. where are the brakes? uh, just grab ahold of both and pull straight back. and the "whoa!" is optional. you wouldn't buy a motorcycle without handlebars. no thanks. and you shouldn't ride a motorcycle without geico insurance. roadside assistance, 24 hour service, great rates. geico motorcycle. see how much you could save. the right connections. introducing miracle-gro liquafeed universal feeder. turn any hose connection into a clever feeding system for a well-fed garden. miracle-gro. life starts here.

>> beauchamp? ready? >> appreciate it. kind of odd not seeing someone after 20 years. she told me she just recently lost a lot of weight. but when we was younger, she wasn't that big. she said she lost 100 pounds. i don't care. i've been in prison so long, appearances, i've learned, are real deceiving. so i don't know. >> hey. >> you all right? >> yeah. >> long time, long time. we've got a lot of catching up to do. >> don't cry. >> i'm trying not to. >> you all right? >> yeah.

8:47 pm
but with only two days left to serve on his eight-year sentence, he's in the midst of a meltdown. >> is this what i have to do to get someone to [ bleep ] listen to me? they won't [ bleep ] help me out! >> gonzalez was moved to a holding cell after cutting himself again after a dispute with staff over his rec time. >> i did one, two, three, all at the same time. it was so bad, i cut my vein, it started squirting. i'm trying to make it home, but at the same time -- >> he's cutting his wrist bad. he's been suicidal before. now you want to put him in a cage for no reason? >> an inmate in a neighboring cell appears to offer gonzalez some support. but things aren't always what they seem in prison. >> he hates women, he's a rapist. >> that's the case with the baseless accusation coming from the inmate in the next cell, meant only to rile up someone else or perhaps just pass the time.

8:49 pm
i'm nervous, man. don't get me wrong. i'm really happy to be out there with my family again. you know? i'm not trying to get in trouble to purposely stay here. that's not what this is about. it's not purposely. it's just how i am. >> it's a big change. >> i want to get the hell out of here as soon as possible. i can't wait. >> gonzalez is not the only cutter at isp who's under stress. after less than a week of living in a general population dorm, john philbeck ran into a problem with another inmate and was moved back to the residential treatment unit. when he got there, more trouble was waiting for him. >> dude jumped me as soon as he opened up the door. >> just turn around. >> officers restrain the inmate who allegedly attacked philbeck upon his return to the residential treatment unit. >> you have no idea why this man jumped you? >> no. >> calm down.

a week after he was assaulted by inmate joe buchanan, counselor robert taylo, though still on medical leave, has returned to the prison. >> i had to walk in there and let the guy see me. and i had to do it for myself, too, because when i come back to work, if i hadn't gone in there, hey, he's scared. and i'm not. i'm not working, i just had to go back and get some paperwork out of the dorm. >> how did that go when you went back in? >> just as i thought it would. the guy came up and secretly

said, glad to see me back. >> but the outlook for ricky beauchamp who's been anticipating his release in just nine more days is discouraging. a recalculation of the time he has earned off his sentence for good behavior has pushed his release date back an additional eight months. >> i have a daughter that just turned 13 years old, and she's my pride and joy. and when i sit back and think about it now, i don't regret what i did. in the situations i was in, i had to react to them in a certain manner. and it saddens my heart to know that i had to do that and take time away from my daughter, from her. >> though it pales in comparison with being released, the prison has decided to move beauchamp from the residential treatment unit to a general population dorm where he will have much more freedom within the prison. >> i'm excited because i don't like being locked in this cage.
8:56 pm
and going over there, it's all open. if i'm feeling stressed or whatever, i can get up and walk around instead of being in a cell like this. it's hard to walk back and forth just right here. >> beauchamp's move to the dormitory will also prepare him for an uncertain future on the outside. the feeling can be overwhelming. >> we done? >> it's an emotional day for rudy gonzalez as well. >> here in just a few minutes, i'm going to be on the other side of that wall. it's hard to believe. it's hard to believe it's actually happening. >> though gonzalez's final days in prison have been troubling ones, he has completed his full sentence and the prison must grant his release.
8:57 pm
>> see how i'm shaking a little bit? i'm nervous, man. eight years. eight long years. i'm excited, i'm nervous and i'm scared all at the same time. i talked to my daughter on the telephone last night. she said, tomorrow morning when i hug you, i'm never letting you go again. i can't wait. look at me. i'm crying and the whole world is going to be like, man, he's soft. but i miss my daughter. i've been missing her for eight years. >> today's the day, huh? probably be the last time you have to put these on, hopefully. front or back? >> in the back. >> just been praying for my son for the last eight years and
