( applause ) what the internet did for buying music and plane tickets and shoes? you would turn an intimidating process into an easy one. you could get a mortgage on your phone.
and wouldn't those buyers need to fill their homes with lamps and blenders and sectional couches with hand-lathed wooden legs? and wouldn't that mean all sorts of wooden leg-making opportunities for wooden leg makers? and wouldn't those new leg makers own phones from which they could quickly and easily secure mortgages of their own, further stoking demand for necessary household goods as our tidal wave of ownership floods the country with new homeowners, who now must own other things and isn't that the power of america itself now shrunk to fit the hands of a child, or, more helpfully, a home-buying adult. anyway. that's what we were thinking. alright, what do you think boys? we could do tacos. we could do some thai. ooo... how 'bout sushi, eh? [weird dog moan/squeak] why not? [dog yawning/squeaking] no, we're not, we're not having barbecue... again. [quiet dog groan]
(man) this is where it all started. i received a call from our dispatch center. smoke was coming from a manhole, and that's not good. we entered the manhole. we discovered that the cables had been melted by the fire. we jumped in, we got to work, and in a little over eight hours, we had the power back on. hi, i'm john snyder, distribution system supervisor for appalachian power. it's my goal to keep the lights on and everything run smoothly, and no one even notices. (announcer) we may be a power company, but the true power in our communities
( applause ) >> stephen: welcome back, everybody. you know, my parents always told me to never talk politics at the dinner table, which is why i don't have a dinner table out here. ( laughter ) and we've still got nine months until the election. but between now and then, the brave candidates have a long, strange trip full of unexpected dangers. this is the road to the white
>> the american dream is dead. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: that opening graphic was based on a true story. now, on the republican side tomorrow, all eyes are on my home state of south carolina. and i encourage all palmetto state republicans to get out and vote. you can have an important voice in who i'll be making jokes about for the next four years. i think you know who my choice is. and this is still anybody's race. believe it or not, the hottest thing on social media right now is current presidential candidate and future co-op board treasurer, jeb bush. jeb knows he really needs to win south carolina, so he's bringing out the big guns, by which i mean tweeting this photo of an actual gun, with his name engraved on it.
gun owners, or he's going to camp and his mom wrote his name on everything. and the the stakes could not be higher for marco rubio. in iowa, he stormed into third place. in new hampshire, he thundered into fifth place. and he's surging towards second after pouring a lot of other people's money into this new ad. >> it's morning again in america. today more men and women are out of work than ever before in our nation's history. people paying more in taxes than they will for food, housing, and clothing combined. it's morning again in america, and under the leadership of
barack obama and hillary clinton, our country is more vulnerable, divided and diminished than ever before. >> stephen: yes, an uplifting message of hope. it's morning in america. but you've got no job, isis is going to kill us all, go back to
put a nipple on it. and i'm sure this ad will boost the senator, because it provides a hopeful vision for america, the greatest country on earth! except for maybe the one you're seeing in this ad, which uses stock footage of canada. yes. it turns out that skyline is vancouver and that american boat of optimism has a canadian flag on back. maybe it's trying to tug vancouver into the united states! the
point is, ladies and gentlemen, that regardless of the footage, i believe this ad speaks to all americans, as surely as the eagle soars, marco rubio is as american as baseball
( cheers and applause ) he will strengthen our armed forces. he will secure our vulnerable southern border, bring back good american jobs, fix our educational system, and make this country great again. because it's morning in america. vote rubio. you won't be sourry.

was a reason why kim jung un is so stressed out: not enough coloring books. but the woman in that video who colors in an adult coloring book while drinking a glass of wine alone in her apartment. (laughter) i mean, guys, it took us about a hundred years but we finally have a new definition for the word "single." (laughter) i mean this is going to be fun though because now when people come over for dinner and they point at the fridge and they're like "aw, that is adorable. did your son do that?" i can make things really weird by saying "no, i did." (laughter) they say this is good for stress. i've got to say if you're an adult who spends a lot of time coloring, i'm going to go out on a limb and say you don't have many problems in your life. nobody is working three jobs and going "hey, check out this pink dragonfly. didn't go over the lines once." but it's not just adult coloring books. people are also trying to release tension through other
for example, and this was in the news, a man in portland, oregon has made a new year's resolution to draw a butt every day in 2016. completely true. yeah, so when this guy draws one butt a day, he's an artist. when i do it, it's sexual harassment. honestly, if i wanted to see an ass every day, i'd just visit ted cruz's instagram. thank you. up top. up top. don't leave me hanging. do not leave me hanging. yeah, you, purple tie, come on. yeah, thank you. ( cheers and applause ) i mean, we're only six days into the new year. i can't believe it. this is in the news. like, what was the discussion in the newsroom? were they like, "david, north korea's got a hydrogen bomb, get on it. allison, you've got the obama speech.
draw a butt every day this year. catch him before he gets to butt six." but the truth is, all of these relaxation methods seem like nothing compared to what one los angeles based company has come up with. >> we believe that we truly can elevate small aspects of life. we believe that we can increase efficiency in our down time. no tricks, no gimmicks, we are focused on one thing. and we do one thing the best that we can possibly do it. we make hoods become pillows. >> james: completely real video. we did not-- that is completely real. i mean finally an answer to the question "what do you get for the man who sleeps at the park?" i got to tell you, i think this is going to be a tough product to take off.
compete with other products that help you sleep such as a bed and you know, nighttime. i mean they say dress for the job you want. and this is perfect if the job you want is no job. so you know, sure, north korea, you can build your hydrogen bomb because we have adult coloring books, inflatable pillow hoodies, our butt drawings, and that is why i am proud to be an american. god bless this show and god bless these united states of america, y'all! do we want to see who is on the show tonight? we have a great show this evening. in the blue room, he is an acting legend, you know from from films like "escape from new york," "silkwood," and tarantino's latest, brilliant "the hateful eight." we are so excited to have him on the show, mr. kurt russell is here this evening!
