11:36 pm
[ cheers and applause ] thank you for being here. you guys, it's friday. [ cheers ] that's one reason to celebrate. also, it's the first day in a a long time when no one declared they're running for president. [ laughter ] that's right. the election's really heating up. and i saw that the ceo of epic records hosted a fundraiser for hillary clinton that was attended by beyoncé, meghan trainor and sharon osbourne. [ light laughter ] or as bill calls them, "definitely, probably, and i think i actually did." [ laughter ] [ applause ] and listen to this. after it was revealed that he donated to the clinton foundation, abc news anchor george stephanopoulos announced that he will not moderate abc's republican debate in february. yeah. in fairness, though, with 36 possible candidates running, you don't need a moderator, you need this guy -- >> let's get ready to rumble! >> jimmy: let's get ready to rumble! [ applause ] and in an interview this week, presidential candidate carly fiorina continued to criticize hillary clinton for

[ laughter ] can anyone find her? do you at home see her? time's up. there she is. [ laughter and applause ] good job if you found her. it sounds like former new york governor george pataki may be entering the race for president. it's not definite, but yesterday he tweeted that he will announce his 2016 plans on may 28th in new hampshire. [ light laughter ] what's he gonna do, go to new hampshire to say he's not running? it's like getting down on one knee and saying, "i think it's time we see other people." [ laughter ] actually, take a look at this tweet. this is a real tweet, by the way. can we zoom in on the bottom there? 33 favorites. [ laughter ]
11:38 pm
well, that's a good start. he's got a chance. >> steve: for president, yeah. >> jimmy: he's got a chance for president. [ applause ] 33 people. he's got a shot, man. did you guys see this? during a recent event at a a restaurant called tommy's country ham house in south carolina, presidential candidate ben carson delivered a speech right after he lost his front tooth. which still left him with more teeth than everyone combined at tommy's country ham house. [ light laughter ] he actually lost his front tooth. which explains why he said under his leadership, americans would be entitled to "life, liberty, and the purthuit of happineth." [ laughter ] some news out of washington. you guys remember those secret service agents that crashed their car near the white house? remember that story? well yesterday, a report found that the agents were more likely than not drunk. [ light laughter ] yeah. the secret service agent responsible for the accident denied hitting the fence. he said -- [ slurred ] "this thing is getting blown wayou knowy out of proportion. we didn't crash into the fence.
11:39 pm
that fence crashed into us. it totally come out of nowhere and i was like, 'surprise! i'm a fence and i'm gonna crash into your car.' and we were like, 'whoa! cool! a talking fence!' [ laughter ] but then there were some flashing blue lights and some mean men came and took us away from the talking fence and put us in a box made out of nothing but fences. [ laughter ] but these fences were mean and didn't talk." [ applause ] that's fair. he's got a point. some tech news here. after it was announced that you can order a pizza from domino's just by texting a pizza emoji, it was also announced that you can now donate to panda habitats by just tweeting a a panda emoji. i wonder what happens if you tweet an emoji of a pizza and a a panda. let me see. here you go. let's see. there you go. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] hi, hashtag. thank you!

[ applause ] >> jimmy: this is interesting, here. buzzfeed and "the new york times" announced that they are going to start posting stories and articles directly to facebook. that makes sense. in fact, people are so used to getting their news from facebook that they've actually started a daily newspaper. we actually got a copy.
