guys, the mid-term elections are over, finally. and congress is now split with republicans winning the senate but losing the house. trump was shocked. he said, "i thought those were the same thing." [ laughter ] now that they control the house, democrats will try to investigate trump's finances and get his tax returns. which is why today, trump ran up to the troops guarding the mexican border and yelled, "let me out. get me out of here!" [ laughter and applause ] actually, at a press conference today, trump talked about his tax returns saying, "they're extremely complex. people wouldn't understand them." he talks about his taxes like a a moody 14-year-old talks about a poem he wrote. [ laughter ] "you wouldn't get it, dad." at the press conference trump yelled at the media. and at one point a staffer tried wrestling away a a microphone from a reporter. it got even weirder when trump started chanting, "jerry, jerry, jerry, jerry!" [ laughter and applause ] and while he was speaking, trump said that despite republican losses, people still want to work at the white house. listen to what he said.
>> everybody wants to work in this white house. we are a hot country. this is a hot white house. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: and then he said, "it's getting hot in here. so take off all your --" [ laughter ] but just a few hours after trump said the white house is a a great place to work, his attorney general jeff sessions announced his resignation. [ laughter ] can we take a look at sessions? it makes sense that he's leaving now. santa needs him to start making toys at the north pole. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's right. he says he wants to step down and spend more time with his brothers, crackle and pop. [ laughter ] very -- very -- good for him. i saw that jeff sessions' resignations letter began, "at your request i am submitting my resignation." but it ended with, "but despite our differences, this truly has been the worst two years of my life." [ laughter and applause ] but as i mentioned, it was a a huge night last night with significant shifts in both the house and the senate.
for more election coverage we turn now to our political analyst, ron widebrow. ron? >> thank you, jimmy. [ applause ] that's right. the democrats took control of the house gaining at least 26 seats while republicans retain control of the senate. there were some major shifts in the mid-terms and power is now divided in washington. >> jimmy: very interesting. now ron, let's turn our attention to the presidential election in 2020. >> eh -- i'd rather not. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: what? >> um, i don't want to do that. >> jimmy: you don't want to talk about the presidential race? >> i mean, come on, man. don't we get a break? you know? [ light laughter ] presidential election is in two years. that's like a thousand days or something, you know? i can't talk about the presidential race for that long. i'll go crazy. i already am crazy. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: with all due respect ron, you report on politics. that's your job. >> no, no, i know. i know. look, i know, okay? you know, i mean, it's just like, come on, man. like can we at least wait like one year and 11 months to start talking about the presidential election? it's so much coverage, man.

[ laughter ] let me watch some "ozark," man. give me some "property brothers." just one episode, okay? >> jimmy: no, no. you're here to talk about last night's results and that includes implications about the 2020 election. >> come on bro, ease up. >> jimmy: ron! >> how about in six months? >> jimmy: no. >> one month. >> jimmy: no! >> two weeks. >> jimmy: no, ron! >> come on, man. no, two weeks, that's nothing, man. let me breathe. >> jimmy: ron, you will talk about the presidential race now. >> no! >> jimmy: yes! >> no! >> jimmy: yes! >> no! >> jimmy: ron! >> please! >> jimmy: ron! >> come on! >> jimmy: do it! >> okay, fine! i'll talk about the presidential election which is two whole years away! you're crazy man! you're freaking crazy! >> jimmy: talk about it! i wanna hear your analysis. we all want to hear your freaking analysis! >> okay, fine! in 2020 -- >> jimmy: come on. >> the presidential election -- >> jimmy: come on. >> poses some challenging -- >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> ah, who cares? it is gonna come down to [ bleep ] florida. >> jimmy: all right. get him out of here! >> oh, come on!

was it a red wave? was there any wave? did anyone really win? did anyone lose? >> well look, it wasn't a wave because political waves happen when one party is fired up and the other party isn't. and in this case, both parties were fired up. so what this was was a a realignment. and this is basically the geography of the country now being correctly represented by the party it wants to be represented by. so this is -- i mean you look, it was the suburbs of everywhere. whether it was here, staten island, orange county california, orange county florida, virginia beach, oklahoma city. if there was a suburb in america represented by a a republican, they got knocked off by a democrat and it was in most cases a democratic woman. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. a lot of new women are coming to washington. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and is that -- is that going to make our country -- i hate to say it, but more divided? or is it gonna be easier to work with houses? >> it's -- when you don't live next door to each other, all right? we as americans right now, politically don't live next door to each other. democrats are -- all live in the same neighborhood. republicans all live in the
same neighborhood. and so when you're that sort of isolated, right? democrats watch one cable news channel. republicans watch another cable news channel. and i think that it's -- it's going to make it worse. i mean this -- this polarization is now baked in our politics. and now it's sort of like -- . it's this -- >> jimmy: don't you talk to me about -- >> that's right. this is like, and i don't even want my kid to marry somebody in the same party. and i don't want to communicate. and you know, people see the red hat and they run for the hills or people see a a resistance sweater and they think, you know -- they think you're the son of satan. it's that sort of -- that's what's happening. it's this idea that your political party is this cultural identifier of who you are. >> jimmy: will this help anything at all? or will this -- will this -- >> i mean, i hope it helps. i mean, look, i'll be optimistic about this. we had over 100 million people vote. nobody was apathetic this time.

learn about the house, the senate. so i go, like -- >> jimmy: yeah, that's chuck todd gets in there and shows them how it's done. >> i geeked out. >> jimmy: throw me a couple gummies and shut up!

he is rowdy roddy piper and i'm mean gene okerlund and -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> or some days it's peter alexander that has to play the role of mean gene, you know, whatever. whoever the press person is of the day, in the same way that the reporter in wrestling would just get mocked and beaten up by hulk hogan or rowdy roddy piper, that's -- that's what trump thinks it is. and he also thinks it's just fun. that it's show business. and he'll say, "i'm good for your ratings aren't i?" isn't this good for you? you know, it's all -- it's all show business. and you want to say, yeah it's all fun and games until you get a pipe bomb and a visit from the fbi. that's no fun. and so, that's the part i think that -- look, i think we sometimes take him too seriously and get, or at least like ginned up on 11. >> jimmy: yeah. >> at the same time i don't think he's very self-aware at like what this -- what some of his words do to people. >> jimmy: i watch you every weekend on "meet the press." >> i appreciate that. >> jimmy: you're fantastic. i know it's a big -- big shoes to step into. but i think you do an awesome job. >> well as -- as i always said, i just don't want to be the last moderator of "meet the
