a new report finds that protecting donald trump and his family is costing new york city taxpayers over $1 million a a day. [ audience boos ] and trump was like, "thank god i'm not a taxpayer." i mean that is -- wow. [ laughter and applause ] right now, the focus is on who trump will appoint to his cabinet. in fact, c-span aired a live feed of the elevators at trump tower that captured potential cabinet members going up to meet donald trump. did you see that? it even caught the moment ted cruz was approaching the elevator and everyone inside frantically hit the "door close" button. they're like -- [ laughter and applause ] sorry, sorry. get the next one! and this is kind of embarrassing. kansas secretary of state, kris kobach, who donald trump is considering for the department of homeland security was photographed with his notes that revealed his deportation plans. [ light laughter ] we didn't do any -- this is real. take a look at this photo.
that's real. [ audience ohs ] trump was like, "my first order of business as president is to by this dummy a folder." [ cheers and applause ] what -- even russian hackers are like, "come on, it's too easy. this is like, i can read everything." kobach seems like the type of guy who says his atm number out loud as he punches it in. 7-6-9-3, done. and now i get money. that's my money code. [ cheers and applause ] and get this, trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway, was being interviewed yesterday and she says that she's very confident that trump isn't breaking any laws during his transition. and americans were like, "uh we weren't even suspicious until you said that." [ light laughter ] "why? what did he do?" [ applause ] this is just pretty cool. i read that google just added a a new update feature that shows you the most popular times for stores and restaurants. yeah. it allows people to look up

[ laughter and applause ] whatever. you know what i mean. stop doing that. give me your phone. whatever. [ applause ]

so, congrats on that. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> jimmy: do you go -- hey, i'd love to do this but i got this. i don't know which character would confuse people. >> "gilmore girls" has been sort of a past tense thing until now, and when we went to do the revival, we had wrapped our second season of "how to get away with murder" so it got to -- it was lovely to be able to do one thing, you know. we didn't have to do it all at the same time. and yeah, they kind of exist separately. but yes, it was bizarre to go >> jimmy: it was weird to go back? >> yeah. >> super weird. >> jimmy: sean, did bringing kirk back? did you go, yeah, no. >> it's just weird. yeah, no, i mean, the whole thing is crazy. it feels like the show is more popular now than it ever was, you know, even when it was on the air. so to hear, you know, fans are so excited for it, for a show that we did, you know, we started doing it 15 years ago or whatever, it's crazy. >> jimmy: and you've got a good ride of your character. what a fun character. i mean, was that -- kirk is just, every time you come on,
>> you know, i came on as the dsl installer in the first episode i did. i was just supposed to be a a one-day job, you know? back in 2000. and you know, here i am now. >> jimmy: but you chose this character, he's just so out there and weird. [ cheers and applause ] and i loved it. but all three of you, home runs. i mean, i feel like, i mean after how many seasons? was it seven seasons? >> yeah. >> seven. >> jimmy: you really got to work as an actor. what an arc. i mean, you got to know these guys. i'm like, it's crazy. that's how great television is, i think. because movies are great as well, but they're two hours, you get in, you know the character, you get out. a show is -- i mean, i got 60 hours left. [ laughter ] and i'm already -- i'm already three quarters of the way through. so, i mean, did you get -- as soon as you hit the set do, you go, oh, i know what luke is all about? yeah, yeah. >> you know, i thought i did. i put the hat on, and i thought that would be the big shining moment that the character would come back. it's been ten years. i had a son. you know, i was a different guy. i was more laid back, i was happier. you know, i had this little boy
>> and i got on set and got into the diner and started rehearsing a scene, amy was directing and i had no idea what i was doing. i didn't feel like the guy at all. so i asked permission to go take a walk around stars hollow and when i got to the gazebo, i sat down and, you know, i started feeling like the guy again. and i went back in. >> jimmy: oh my god. >> i thought i was going to get fired. >> jimmy: you can't get fired. you're luke. you fire them. what are you talking about? it's a telephone, get out of here. >> i was so bad in rehearsal that i thought, i need to take a walk. >> jimmy: no way. amy sherman paladino, she had this idea, it's day in the life, it's four seasons, is what i'm assuming. i don't even want to know too much 'cause i don't want to spoil anything. but i know that it does end with the four words, right, that she planned on it always ending? >> yes, i believe that's right. >> jimmy: does anyone know what the four words are? >> i do. >> jimmy: you do? >> i don't know. i don't know what they are. >> jimmy: you don't want to know? >> no, i want to watch it with the fans.
[ light laughter ] well, it could be that. >> jimmy: it's tricky. >> i'll tell you what it's not. >> jimmy: what's that? >> maybe it's "kirk is your overlord." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i could see that. >> my idea to amy was "drop the gun, kirk," and she rejected it. >> jimmy: drop the gun, kirk. no. but it's a much deeper, right? >> it's more philosophical. >> jimmy: it is. >> you had some better ideas in your monologue. >> jimmy: right? that stars hollow never existed. [ laughter ] it's like this whole thing is in a snow globe and that's the way it ends. mortgage in that case? >> jimmy: no, exactly. yeah. i was just trying to figure it all out because i'm trying to think is it a carol king reference. it's very tricky thing. so i don't know what -- >> yeah, it's bigger than all of us. >> jimmy: yeah. it is. >> yeah. >> jimmy: no, that's six words. [ laughter ] i can't wait to see this. it comes out friday, but i love you guys. i love you guys. i love you guys. on behalf of all your fans. [ cheers and applause ] you're really hitting a home run.

my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists.
