adviser michael flynn cut a a plea deal with robert mueller and then the senate passed the gop tax bill. i tried to follow it on the news, but all the anchors have been fired for sexual harassment, so i didn't see anything. [ applause ] >> steve: really? >> jimmy: i don't know what's going on. that's right. michael flynn agreed to a plea deal with robert mueller and it came out that the fbi is investigating everyone in the white house all the way to the top. trump was like, "oh my god, they're investigating putin?" everybody. everybody. everybody! [ laughter ] [ applause ] that's right, flynn cut a deal and is now working with the investigation. so i guess after helping trump transition into the white house, he's helping transition him out. yeah, that's very interesting. [ cheers and applause ] he does everything. oh, and get this, trump might have incriminated himself when he tweeted that he had to fire flynn because he lied to mike pence and the fbi. you could tell trump was scared 'cause his next tweet was like, #jklol. [ laughter and au
>> jimmy: but after trump posted the tweet, the white house claimed it was actually written by trump's lawyer. then trump saw how many retweets it got and was like, "never mind, i wrote it. [ applause ] yeah, i guess, i retweeted myself." the other big story is that early saturday morning, senate republicans passed their tax plan. they said we realize doing this in the dead of night makes us look sneaky, corrupt and dishonest. anyway, have a great weekend. [ laughter and applause ] but the bill's drawn lots of criticism. experts say it will ruin health care, cause problems for the elderly, and add over $1 trillion to the deficit. trump's cabinet was like, "phew, thank god we're going to jail. i mean, could you imagine -- if we had to live in this world?" [ applause ] and senate democrats went after republicans for making a bunch of handwritten changes to the tax reform bill just hours before voting on it. you could barely read some of them. this is a real photo. take a look at this. yeah. can't really tell whath
well, we want some answers. so here now, via satellite, from washington, is one of the people who voted for the bill. please welcome republican senator cory gardner. cory. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> jimmy: yeah. now senator, you voted for this bill, but a lot of people have been saying that all these scribbles were impossible to read. >> well, to be perfectly frank, it's a lot clearer and more straightforward than what people are saying. >> jimmy: okay. then can you please tell us what those changes said. >> absolutely. one example is article 19, section b, which clearly states that our tax bill will significantly lower taxes for agripolental redudicratic convorpulations. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i'm sorry, lower taxes for what? >> it will lower taxes for all ambula-rental chromosomatic compulnacations. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i have no idea what you just said. >> well, it's very straightforward. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: fine. can you give me another example? >> sure. article 273, section d, very plainly indicates that any individual may claim a a deduction for interest paid on accumulated combustn
>> jimmy: accumulated combustion muffins? >> choreographed dolphin fluffin'. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: dolphin fluffin'? >> exactly. it allows deductions for computer-agitated corgi puzzles. >> jimmy: repeat what you just said. >> gastrointestinal strudel noodles. >> jimmy: senator gardner, i'm starting to suspect that you have no clue what the very bill you signed actually says. >> of course i do. >> jimmy: then say it slowly so i can repeat it. >> well, this is very childish, but fine. our bill cuts the tax rate. >> jimmy: our bill cuts the tax rate. >> for anyone who. >> jimmy: for anyone who -- >> nerd twerdle cofefe kardashian. >> jimmy: all right, get out of here. cory gardner, everybody. nerd twerdle? nerd twerdle? >> steve: what? nerd twerdle. >> jimmy: cory gardner, everybody, cory gardner, there he is. [ cheers and applause ] it's also -- it's also pretty big. this morning, trump endorsed roymo
"we need roy moore to win alabama." turns out trump has been tweeting so much in the morning, it's actually inspired a new product. take a look at this. >> do you have trouble waking up in the morning? need an extra jolt to get out of bed? then try the all new trump tweets alarm clock, the only alarm clock that wakes you up by reading trump's latest insane tweets, which happen every day at like 6:00 am. [ whistle ] >> we need roy moore to win in alabama. [ whistle ] the russia investigation is a a witch hunt. [ whistle ] i'm getting rid of alaska. it's just a big, cold hawaii. >> the trump tweets alarm clock. crazy never sleeps. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: for the holiday season. >> steve: yeah, for the holidays. >> jimmy: some business news, i read that cvs will buy the health care company aetna for about $69 billion. it's so much money that they have to wait for a manager to come press a button on the self-checkout machine. you know what i'm talking about? [ applause ] that's right, cvs is buying aetna for $69 billion. when the cvs chairman got home,
[ applause ] you should have told me you were buying aetna!" this made me laugh. the pontiac silver dome was set to be demolished in detroit yesterday. it was supposed to be a big explosion. everyone came to watch. let's see how it turned out. [ explosion ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oops. what were they using to blow it up, diet coke and mentos? you guys, we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots right there!

his -- obviously just hitting homers and doesn't even care. >> it was the coolest thing. so i was sitting at home watching the world series obviously with everybody and i was out on my back porch and he had hit a home run and you could literally hear the cheers from all over the whole neighborhood. i thought that was -- >> jimmy: isn't that the greatest? >> that was one of the coolest things in the whole world and i think that's why it's so cool to share the cover with this guy, because i mean, to be able to bring a city together through sports and to be able through -- of all the seasons you can win a world series, of all the seasons you could ever win your first world series, to do it at a time like this and i saw this one photo where no -- they didn't have any dry wall in their house, they didn't have any furniture. they were sitting on five-gallon buckets and they were watching a t.v. that they had rigged up and they were watching us win the world series and cheering. and i think that was such a a powerful message that sports are so much bigger than just hitting a ball out of the park. you're literally lifting people's spirits and making them forget about what they're going through for that minute. and i think jose and the guys deserve so much better for that. >> jimmy: absolutely. [ cheers and applause ] and he -- he sent you
after they won the world series. >> yeah, he did. >> jimmy: what'd he send you? >> he sent me a bottle of whiskey, which is always accepted. >> jimmy: yeah. jose. >> christmas. >> jimmy: it was christmas, yeah, exactly. whenever. >> but it came with a great letter. i mean, it came with a really special letter that i thought was a real class move by jose and it just speaks to the type of person he is. >> jimmy: we brought the letter here and i was just wondering if you wouldn't mind just maybe reading it to everyone. >> yeah, of course. of course. >> jimmy: this is for real. >> that's right it speaks to the type of person he is. he's a great guy. so he said, j.j., from one h-town brother to another, thanks for all you've done this year for the city that you call home. your support for all things houston, from hurricane relief to being our number one fan has been nothing short of incredible. so i hope you'll accept this fine whiskey gift i gave to all my teammates following our championship run because to me, you're absolutely part of the squad. cheers, jose. so, i mean that's a good guy.
