"we promise to not do anything you propose for ever and ever." and yesterday, the white house chief of staff said this is going to be, quote, "a big optimistic" speech.*qwell, of course, it's optimistici by they guy who's lea\i (cheers and applause) yeah! he's in a great mood! i feel really great! "my fellow americans, after eight years of getting attacked on all sides, the state of our union is feeling pretty good about next year. the state of our union is really looking forward to curling up in a hammock and getting through a novel without being asked to authorize a drone strike. and the state of our union is going to spend some time with its family. the state of our union is also thinking about getting a convertible! the state of our union has always wanted a convertible and
11:38 pm
our union has earned it.]' in conclusion, the state of our union is... really ready to stop being called a secret muslim hitler. that really doesn't make any sense."xd5ai%9 so that's something to look forward to, and we've got a great show for you tonight. to the very funny jane lynch.

11:41 pm
second most lucrative drug empire. -- after pfizer.roin gave you an erection instead of just making you not care. chapo" mexican authorities, six months, after tunneling out of prison it's good they put him on a helicopter. makes the tunneling a little more hazardous. here's the official arrest photo. a lovely choice. (laughter) putting him in strong competition with khaleed sheikh mohammed for worst arrest fashion choice. at least waxed, is what i'll say. (laughter), the unpredictable el chapo had been on the run,
11:42 pm
and to find him, it took another unpredictable man who looks like : sean penn. (laughter) now, sean penn acts likebeen hiding in a jungle more than el chapo. el chapo looks like he's been hiding in a disco for sixr) that's nice. okay. because the day after el chapo's published a secret interview penn had done with el chapo months before that is filled with humanizing details about the misunderstood drug lord. as penn writes:ny of his counterparts who engage in gratuitous kidnapping and murder, el chapo is a businessman first, and only resorts to violence when he himself or his business interests." see? he's a pretty good guy.
11:43 pm
make money off it. penn employed an elaborate series of security measures, including: "tracphones, or burners, one perlevels of encryption, mirroring through blackphones, anonymous e-mail addresses, and unsent messages accessed in draft form." wow.'s elaborate! when i was in college, if you wanted to contact your dealer, you just paged the guy. (laughter)e thinking you could never pull off that level of secrecy without getting tracked. don't worry. sean penn couldn't, law enforcement official says el chapo's secret interview with actor sean penn for rolling stone magazine helped authorities locate his whereabouts.omehow authorities were able to track one of the world's biggest celebrities. note to edward snowden: cancelholas
11:44 pm
(laughter) mm-hmm.d applause) but you can't blame sean pennapture, because a lot of this is on el chapo. as penn explains, "guzman agreed to a meeting because he wanted lucrative life of drug-dealing." yes, his own biopic. presumably starring danny de vito and a large black caterpillar. (laughter) (applause) uh-huh. uh-huh. i believe this arrest only makese el chapo movie will happen. especially once he escapes to direct it. so i want in.l chapo, i've already prepared an audition tape for
11:45 pm
enjoy.hhh! i'm el chapo. i run this mexico. never take me live, coppers. el bango, el tell the d.e.a. chapo stole the millennial facken, for good this time. let's go, chuy!u mean my donkey ate the drugs? i told you to get a droll mule! carumba! nine, ten -- supposed to be 11 heads in the duffle bag! who took tex tray head? donkey! thank you. i'molbert, i live in the new york area, available on weekends and i can drive stick. iand applause)
