-Hi! -Oh, my God,
I’m so happy you’re back. And we’ve talked since,
but let me just say in person, congratulations
on an incredible job at the Correspondents’ Dinner.
-Thank you, thank you. [ Cheers and applause ]
-And how did, uh… -It was — It was —
It went great, and every single person
loved it. [ Laughter ]
Yeah. -Every single person
across the board. -Across the board. Yeah, yeah.
-Never happened before. -No, everyone loved it.
Even, actually, Sarah Huckabee Sanders
called me, and she was like,
“I loved it so much. I got every joke.”
-Really? [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -‘Cause I was watching.
There were a few that seemed like she maybe
didn’t like or get. -Well, you know, you give the best information
you have at the time. [ Laughter and applause ] It’s a philosophy. -You will be very happy. There was a tweet that I saw,
and knowing our relationship, I thought you were just
going love this. This is basically — C-SPAN
posted that in three days, you became the most-watched
Correspondents’ Dinner ever. You beat me. So, basically, in what
it took me seven years to do, you outdid me in three years. -Yeah, I’m gonna frame that.
-Yeah, you outdid me. [ Cheers and applause ]
Well deserved. -It’s great.
Yeah, I think that — I think that means I’m the
father of your children now. -Yeah, I think that might be —
that might be it. -They’re mine now. -So, I want to ask you
about another photo. This is afterwards.
This is a bunch of your writers. -[ Laughs ]
-You were just finished, and you walked into a party,
and this photo, I think, was maybe even in
“The New York Times.” -[ Chuckling ] Yeah. -What is everybody chanting
as you walked in? -They’re chanting,
“Lock her up!” [ Laughter and applause ] -A perfect — A perfect way
to end the evening. Obviously, you had —
This blows my mind, ’cause you were preparing for
the Correspondents’ Dinner, you’re preparing for your new
show that I want to talk about, but you also had time to train,
and then run, a 50-mile race. -Yeah.
-And I know you to be a runner. -Yeah.
[ Cheers and applause ] -What convinced you
to try to do 50 miles at once? -Well, I wanted to do —
It’s an ultra marathon. And I wanted to do that because,
like, anyone can do a marathon. Like, even you did a marathon.
-Yeah, I’ve done one. -Except for that one…
-Yeah. -…that you didn’t finish.
-Well, I had a leg injury. -But you didn’t finish.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
You couldn’t do it, yeah. -I could have hobbled and done,
like, more damage to my leg. -Or you could have sucked it up.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah, yeah. -Well, I didn’t.
So, but if you — -Most people power through it.
[ Light laughter ] -Where did you do your 50-mile? -It was in the Salt Flats
in Utah. And, oh. [ Laughs ]
[ Light laughter ] We have a salt flat here.
-Or just someone who — They just might be
someone who loves salt. -Yeah, it’s great. It’s just… No, so then I spent the weekend
in Utah, and that’s Mormon country. And I was at — I was with
my nephews at a playground. I wasn’t by myself, I promise.
[ Light laughter ] But there is this guy
at the playground wearing a T-shirt
that said, “Porn kills love.” At the playground!
-Yeah. -With the children!
-Right. -‘Cause they need to know.
-[ Laughs ] That’s true. -But I was like — I was like, regardless of your feelings
about porn, like, graphic tees
definitely kill love. [ Laughter ] That’s — No one has ever been
like, “Oh, a graphic tee! I feel like that manatee now.”
[ Laughter ] -That’s how I proposed.
I wore a “Will you marry me?” [ Laughter ] So you’re preparing
for your Netflix show. -Yeah.
-This is very exciting. How has preparation gone so far?
-It’s great. I would have to say that if you hated
the Correspondents’ Dinner, you’re really going to
hate this show. [ Laughter ] -That, I think, is good to hear
for a lot of people.
