[ cheers ] this is the show to be at. thank you guys so much for being here. let's get to the news, here's what people are talking about,
11:36 pm
it's still the rough weather we're having. the northeast is experiencing one of the worst winters in history. which means that schools have had a record number of snow days. [ cheers ] at this rate the only math kids are doing is how many glasses of wine their mom drinks before 2:00pm -- [ cheers and applause ] it's the same glass! [ laughter ] stop counting. [ laughter ] seems like everyone's been affected by the snow. in fact schools and federal offices in washington, d.c., were shut down today after the city received four inches of snow in their first major snowstorm of the season. [ laughter ] or as boston residents put it, "are you [ bleep ] kidding me?" [ laughter and applause ] [ boston accent ] four inches of snow? i left for work this morning out of a second story window. cowboy up! [ laughter ] four inches of snow. closing schools -- [ cheers and applause ] for four inches of snow.
11:37 pm
this, political news here guys. yesterday a federal judge suspended president obama's executive order on immigration. which means millions of undocumented people could be deported again. when asked if he's mad about being overruled, obama said, "you know i've been married for 23 years, right?" [ cheers and applause ] no -- that's what happens. [ applause ] president obama spent monday playing a round of golf in sunny california, and then flew back to washington on air force one. and 10,000 people stranded at boston logan just became republicans. [ laughter ] very -- very interesting how that happens. during a recent interview first lady michelle obama has revealed she has banned boxed macaroni and cheese from the white house. [ audience aws ] though it's been tough on biden, 'cause he couldn't make his wife any jewelry for valentine's day. [ laughter ] it's like, "give me a head's up! give me a head's up, what am i gonna do?" [ laughter and applause ] all right, turkey hand. turkey hand it is.
11:38 pm
here we go. [ laughter ] speaking of joe biden, i read that some democrats are debating if hillary clinton should pick joe biden to be her vice president if he decides not to run in 2016. on one hand he's an experienced politician who has spent years shaping foreign policy. on the other hand -- >> and neil smith an old butt buddy. are you here neil? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: please pick him, hillary, please -- please pick him, please. [ applause ] where's neil, the old butt buddy of mine. isn't he here? where's my old butt buddy neil? [ laughter ] hey, there you are neil. you're always behind me. >> steve: and you're kneeling. >> jimmy: neil's always behind me, yeah. [ laughter and applause ] [ rimshot ] did you guys see this, last week, president obama's outgoing senior adviser john podesta made news when he said his biggest failure from 2014 was not disclosing government ufo files. yeah.
11:39 pm
he said, "the truth is still out there." [ laughter ] it didn't take long for several prospective republican candidates to jump on the issue. here's what they're saying. chris christie said "it's time for obama to disclose these ufo files." rand paul said, "what is the president hiding?" [ laughter ] rick scott said, "we should probably just forget about it." [ laughter and applause ] jeb bush said, "are there aliens among us?" rick scott said, "seriously, let's just move on to something else. what's up with immigration, huh?" [ laughter ] marco rubio said, "did anyone notice rick scott is sweating green fluid?" [ laughter ] and finally illinios congressman dan lipinski said, "you idiot, they're on to us! get back to the mothership! gleep glorp -- [ laughter and applause ] this is pretty interesting. i heard that george washington may have been one of the first
11:40 pm
people to use medical marijuana, to alleviate the pain from his teeth, which were made of ivory, brass and gold. which also means he was the first lil' wayne. [ laughter ] both men had grills. i think you can tell washington smoked weed. i mean take a look at this famous image of george washington crossing the delaware, you know that? right? can you pull up so we can see the rest of the painting? that's a clue right there. [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: white castle. >> jimmy: gotta get a suitcase full of burgers man. >> steve: really? wow! >> jimmy: according to a recent survey, the instrumental song "intro" by the xx is the most popular song to make love to. women say they like it because it's emotional. while men say they like it, because it's two minutes and eight seconds long. [ laughter and applause ] according to my calculations, it still leaves 40 seconds of cuddling. >> steve: yeah. [ laughter ]
11:41 pm
[ cheers ] >> jimmy: thank you, yeah. and finally, this is everywhere today, a lifelong new york islander's fan, she's fantastic, she was at the game last night, they interviewed her. she reminisced about her early days rooting for the team. look at this. >> back in 1982 my son was conceived back in that parking lot here at an islander game. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: hey! ho! >> jimmy: in fairness that is the long island version of being on kiss cam. so that's it.
