let's get to some news. here's what everyone's talking about. did you see this? during this during a q&a session at the white house yesterday, a little girl actually asked first lady michelle obama how old she is. [ laughter ] michelle was like, "old enough to put you on the no-fly list, sweetheart." [ laughter ] don't ask. don't ask. meanwhile, president obama visited the florida everglades yesterday to celebrate earth day and discuss climate change. check out the picture from the event. yeah. [ laughter ] looks less like the president, more like the star of "csi: everglades." [ laughter ] looks like his life got vetoed. ♪ that's right, obama was in the florida everglades yesterday to talk about climate change. and it might just be me, but it felt like he didn't really know what he was talking about. watch this. >> we want to restore the natural water flow of the everglades. as sea levels rise, salty water from ocean flows inward.

new york post claims that mayor bill de blasio has been positioning himself to challenge hillary clinton for the democratic nomination. yeah. i don't know if this is true or not, but i thought we could at least take a look at where the two stand on key issues. hillary once developed a a program to deliver rural healthcare. de blasio once dropped a a groundhog on its head. [ laughter ] hillary thinks we should improve the quality of our nation's schools. de blasio, it was february 2nd, 2014. [ laughter ] the groundhog just slipped out of de blasio's hands during a a groundhog day event in staten island. hillary has served as chairman of the children's defense fund. de blasio, the groundhog's name was staten island chuck.
