all right. welcome, everybody. here's what people are talking about, you guys. tonight was the lighting of the rockefeller center christmas tree. [ cheers and applause ] that's right. thousands of people waited for hours in the cold just to go, "cool. back to the hotel, let's go back to the hotel." [ cheers and applause ] "that was good. that was good." [ applause ] that's -- actually the rockefeller tree lighting was like any other tree lighting. everyone helped for about five minutes, and one mom had to finish the rest by herself. [ laughter ] "don't eat the popcorn! forget it." meanwhile, the obamas just had the white house decorated for their final christmas before they leave. they want to make it look nice for santa, since he's not coming back for at least four years. [ laughter and applause ] this year -- this year's white house holiday display also includes 56 lego gingerbread houses, which is took over 200,000 lego to make.
[ laughter and applause ] "you're eating a lego." "it doesn't even taste like gingerbread!" they used over 200,000 legos for the white house christmas display. after hearing this, donald trump heard said, "save those legos. we can use them for the wall." [ laughter and applause ] "save them. we need it. we need every lego. at the very least, they really hurt to step on if they come over barefoot in the middle of the night. it hurts when you step on them." [ laughter ] "i [ laughter ] this photo was everywhere today. trump and mitt romney were spotted having dinner here new york last night, and everyone's talking about romney's expression. take a look at this photo. is that good? [ laughter ] it got even worse when the spaghetti came and trump said, "ever see lady and the tramp?" [ laughter ] "let's just try it." [ cheers and applause ]
i read that donald trump's pick for education secretary betsy devos never went to public school, and has never even worked for public schools. people are saying that as a a billionaire without much experience, she might be too similar to trump. well, we wanted to find out for ourselves, so we actually have her on the line right now to discuss her new role. betsy, are you there? >> hi, jimmy. it's fantastic to talk to you, really fantastic. [ laughter ] j that you're too inexperienced and too similar to donald trump? >> i have big respect for trump, jimmy, bigly. but let me tell you, we are very different people, very different. and besides, who needs experience? think about it, jimmy. what teachers did you like more in school? the experienced losers, who assigned homework every night, or the hung over substitutes who just turned out the lights and put on an old vhs copy of "e.t."? >> jimmy: yeah, that's right.
teachers unions have also spoken out against you and your lack of -- >> that's ridiculous. i have a great relationship with teachers. teachers love me. they love me. it's true. but jimmy, when americans elected our tremendous president donald trump, and he really is tremendous, just tremendous. i mean, this man is so tremendously tremendous.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: mrs. devos, mrs. devos, i feel like you're not actually saying anything. >> no, i'm saying something. >> jimmy: well, if i may just point out, you failed at every political movement that you've been part of. >> wrong. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: your track record suggests that you would gut the education system for the benefit of private companies. >> wrong. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: basically serving as a puppet for donald trump. >> no puppet. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: and his business interests. >> no puppet. [ light laughter ] you're the puppet, jimmy. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: betsy devos,
