AROUND THE CONGRESS WE'LL HAVE ABIG PROBLEM.

YOU ALREADY HAD A BIG (bleep)PROBLEM BECAUSE ON HIS FIRST

INAUGURAL NIGHT WERE AT ASTEAKHOUSE DINNER AND SWORE

ALLEGIANCE TO OBSTRUCTION ANDPOSSIBLY THE ATKINS DIET.

IT WAS A STEAKHOUSE.

SERIOUSLY PAUL NO BODY FAT.

HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

THIS NOTION THAT REPUBLICANS AREINTERESTED IN WORKING WITH THE

PRESIDENT IS A GAME THAT THEYPLAY.

[ LAUGHTER ]YOU KNOW WHAT IS ALMOST MORE

UPSETTING THAN KNOWINGTHAT REPUBLICANS PLANNED TO

SABOTAGE THE ADMINISTRATION ORTHE GUY THREATENING TO HURL AREPORTER

OFF A BALCONY IS NOT A THUG IN ABATMAN FILM BUT A MAN WEELECTED TO

CONGRESS.

IT'S THAT HE WENT AFTER A NY1REPORTER.

NY1.

[ LAUGHTER ]NY1 IS THE PULSE OF OUR CITY.

FROM THE LATEST THEATEROPENINGS TO THE LATEST

SUBWAY CLOSINGS, TO THEM JUSTLITERALLY SITTING THERE READING

YOU THE PAPER.

THEY READ IT TO YOU.

[ LAUGHTER ]LIKE YOU ARE A LITTLE BABY.

[ LAUGHTER ]NY1 IS ALWAYS THERE FOR US.

IT'S THE CHANNEL MY CABLE BOXREBOOTS TO.

SO THAT NO MATTER WHAT I WASWATCHING, IT SAYS HEY, GUESS WHO

WAS JUST MURDERED IN BROOKLYN?

IT GIVES US WEATHER ON THE 1S,THE 1S, NOT THE 2S BECAUSE THE

2S IS FOR SUCKERS, FOR LOSERS,FOR (bleep) PHILADELPHIA.
