>> ALL RIGHT.

TAKE CARE.

>> THANKS FOR THE CALL,MR. PRESIDENT.

>> BYE-BYE.

>> BYE.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS BYE-BYE.

>> Larry: THE PRESIDENT SAYSBYE-BYE.

C'MON, WOLFMAN, YOU DON'T NEEDTO REPORT THAT.

(LAUGHTER)NOT EVERYTHING THE PRESIDENT

SAYS REQUIRES THE FULL POWERS OFTHE SITUATION ROOM.

ANYWAY, OBAMA WASN'T DONESPREADING THE GAY MARRIAGE LOVE.

FRIDAY NIGHT, OBAMA'S WHITEHOUSE WAS BATHED IN RAINBOW

LIGHTS.

IN FACT, EVERYBODY WAS IN THERAINBOW SPIRIT.

NIAGARA FALLS WAS LIT UP.

SO WAS THE EMPIRE STATEBUILDING.

EVEN DICK CHENEY HAD RAINBOWLIGHTS AT HIS HOUSE.

WE'RE NOT MAKING THAT UP!

DICK CHENEY GOT ON BOARD, MAN.

(LAUGHTER)OF COURSE, EVERYBODY WASN'T

HAPPY ABOUT THE DECISION.

BUT TODAY IS TOO MOMENTOUS A DAYTO SPEND A LOT OF TIME FOCUSING

ON THE HATERS.

SO HERE'S A SHORT LOOK AT THEHATIN' SPONSORED BY HATER-ADE'S

CUT-RATE COMPETITOR,POWER-HATER-ADE.

WHEN YOU NEED TO BE SUCCESSFULAT ATTACKING OTHER PEOPLE'S

SUCCESS, TRY POWER-HATER-ADE.

MM-MMM...

SALTY.

-- LET'S START IN LOUISIANA

GOVERNOR AND PRESIDENTIALCANDIDATE BOBBY JINDAL

SAID THAT "NO EARTHLY

COURT CAN ALTER THE DEFINITIONOF MARRIAGE."

NO EARTHLY COURT?

IS THERE SOME KIND OFINTERGALACTIC COURT?

YOU DO NOT WANT TO TAKE THINGSTO SPACE COURT, BOBBY JINDAL.

AND, OF COURSE, HE USED THEOBVIOUS SLAVE ANALOGY.

ACCORDING TO THOMAS, "SLAVES DIDNOT LOSE THEIR DIGNITY (ANY MORE

THAN THEY LOST THEIR HUMANITY)BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT ALLOWED

THEM TO BE ENSLAVED."

DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT SLAVERYIS?

SLAVERY IS THE COMPLETESTRIPPING OF HUMANITY AND

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: WELCOME BACK.

I'M HERE WITH MY PANEL.

"THE NIGHTLY SHOW" WRITER ANDCOMEDIAN JORDAN CARLOS, COMEDIAN

GUY BRANUM, AND TRANSGENDERACTIVIST AND THE HOST OF "SO

POPULAR!"WHICH STREAMS LIVE ON FRIDAYS ON

MSNBC.com, JANET MOCK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)ON FRIDAY, THE SUPREME COURT

RULED IN FAVOR OF LEGALIZING GAYMARRIAGE IN ALL 50 STATES.

SO, OBVIOUSLY, THIS WAS A BIGWEEKEND FOR THE GAY COMMUNITY.

1. HOW DRUNK DID THE GAYCOMMUNITY GET THIS WEEKEND?

(LAUGHTER)>> WHEN I WAS 14, I THOUGHT I

WAS GOING TO HAVE TO HIDE WHO IWAS FOR MY ENTIRE LIFE.

THREE DAYS AGO, MY BLACKPRESIDENT TURNED THE WHITE HOUSE

RAINBOW.

>> Larry: WOW.

THAT'S HOW DRUNK I GOT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: THAT SUMS IT UP.

THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME.

I LIKE THAT.

THESE ARE HAPPY MOMENTS.

>> IT'S AMAZING!

>> Larry: YEAH, IT REALLY IS.>> AND JIM OBERGEFELL'S

HUSBAND DIDN'T LIVE TO SEETHIS DAY. IT IS MY OBLIGATION

TO GAY PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T LIVETO SEE THIS DAY TO GET DRUNK

AND HAVE SEX WITH DUDES TOCELEBRATE!

(APPLAUSE)2. DOES THIS REALLY MEAN THE

WHOLE GAY FIGHT IS OVER?

AND I DON'T MEAN THE FIGHT ISGAY...

BUT ARE WE ON TO OTHER ISSUES?

ARE THERE MORE ISSUES IN THISAREA?

>> I THINK THIS WAS A DAY ASGUY SAID TO BE DRUNK AND IN

LOVE.. MONDAY IS A DAY TO FIGUREOUT WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP FOR

A LOT OF GAY FOLKS WHO DON'TWANT TO GET MARRIED.

THIS WAS LARGELY ABOUT GETTINGCOUPLES CERTAIN PROTECTIONS AND

RIGHTS AND OUR WORK WILL BEABOUT EXTENDING PROTECTION AND

RIGHTS TO MORE MARGINALIZEDLGBTQ PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO

GET MARRIED.

LET'S TALK ABOUT HOUSING FORLGBT YOUTH.

40% IDENTIFY AS HOME LESS LGBTYOUTH. AND HEALTHCARE AND

SUICIDE AND DEPRESSION AND ALLTHESE OTHER THINGS IMPACT THE

WAY--

>> THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT HAPPENEDIN 1965 FOR BLACK PEOPLE AND

WE'RE TOTALLY COOL NOW.

>> PUT THIS IN PERSPECTIVEHOW BIG IS THIS DECISION IF

YOU PUT IT IN HISTORICAL TERMS?IS IT LIKE BROWN V. BOARD OF

EDUCATION? IS IT LIKE THE CIVILRIGHTS ACT?

>> IT'S NO ROWAN V. U.S. POSTOFFICE WHICH MEANS YOU CAN'T

STOP GETTING JUNK MAIL, BUT IT'SBIGGER THAN THAT.

>> THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH THEDECISION ITSELF.

THIS DECISION WAS AN OPPORTUNITYFOR THE SUPREME COURT TO GIVE

EQUAL PROTECTION -- HEIGHTENEDEQUAL PROTECTION STATUS TO GAY

AND TRANSPEOPLE AND THEY DIDN'T.

THEY JUST SAID IT'S AFUNDAMENTAL RIGHT ISSUE.

>> Larry: THEY NEVER SPECIFIEDGAY OR TRANS.

>> THINK NEVER SAID TRANS AT ALLAND DIDN'T GIVE US HEIGHTENED

PROTECTION STATUS AND THEY DIDIT IN A SUMMER WHEN WE DON'T

HAVE A CLEAR SUMMER JAM.

WOULD IT HAVE KILLED THEM WHENTHEY GAVE A NOD TO THE PRESIDENT

TO SAY, HEY, ARIANA GRANDE, YOUMIGHT WANT TO DO SOMETHING.

(APPLAUSE)>> IF ANYBODY WANTS ANY

CHAMPAGNE -->> I WOULD LOVE SOME.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> IT'S EVERYBODY'S PARTY!

WHY DO YOU THINK THERE ISSTILL SO MUCH RESISTANCE?

WHERE IS THAT COMING FROM?

TED CRUZ'S COMMENT -- "DARKEST24 HOURS IN OUR NATION'S

HISTORY?"REALLY?

THIS IS THE DARKEST 24 HOURS INREALLY?

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF DARK(BLEEP)ING 24-HOUR PERIODS

>> THAT IS CONSERVATIVE TROLLINGAT ITS FINEST.

A WEEK BEFORE THE DECISION WEHAD THE MASSACRE IN

SOUTH CAROLINA AND FOR HIM TOEVEN SAY THAT IS RIDICULOUS,

AND HELLO SLAVERY.

(APPLAUSE)>> WHEN LADY GAGA RELEASED THAT

ALBUM, DUETS WITH TONYBENNET, THAT WAS PRETTY HARD.

>> BROWN V. BOARD OF EDUCATIONWAS A 9-0 DECISION, YOU STILL

NEEDED FEDERAL MARSHALSDESEGREGATING THE LITTLE ROCK

SCHOOLS

>> AND THAT WAS A REPUBLICANPRESIDENT.

>> YES, BUT I SERIOUSLY DOUBTTHERE ARE GOING TO BE FEDERAL

MARSHALS IN BRIDAL PARTIES.

I DON'T THINK WE'LL NEED TODESEGREGATE.

>> WE'LL NEED TO REMIX THENORMAN ROCKWELL PAINTING,

INSTEAD OF THE BLACK GIRL WITHFEDERAL MARSHALS, IT WILL BE A

GAY COUPLE GOING TO THECOURTHOUSE.

>> Larry: DO YOU THINK IT'S ANOLDER GENERATION RESISTING

THIS OR IS IT JUST PURELYPOLITICAL TO GET VOTES?

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA IN 2008 LIEDABOUT HIS OPINION ABOUT GAY

MARRIAGE.

>> I THINK HE LIED, TOO.

T WAS POLITICAL POSTURING,HE LIED ABOUT IT AND WE HAVE GAY

MARRIAGE NOW.

I MEAN, THERE IS SOMETHING TO BESAID FOR POLITICAL LIES.

>> I ALSO THINK REPUBLICANS NEEDTO GET OUT OF THEIR PRIMARY.

THEY'RE TRYING TO ATTRACT THECONSERVATIVES.

(LAUGHTER)>> Larry: ARE YOU SAYING ONCE

THEY GET IN THE GENERALS, WE'REFOR GAY MARRIAGE!

>> I THINK THEIR CATCHPHRASE OFMARRIAGE IS REDEFINING MARRIAGE.

THIS WILL BE THEIR LITTLE STANCERIGHT NOW.

BUT I THINK ONCE THEY GO TO THEGENERAL, THEY WILL HAVE TO

APPEAL TO A LARGER VOTER BLOCKAND I THINK A PART OF THAT WILL

BE SLIGHTLY MORE LIBERAL.

>> DO YOU THINK WE'LL EVER SEETHE DAY WHERE WE HAVE A GAY

PRESIDENT WHO IS MARRIED?

I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD SEE ABLACK PRESIDENT IN MY LIFETIME.

>> I THINK SO.

I TRAVEL AROUND TALKING TOCOLLEGE KIDS ALL THE TIME.

THEY'RE THE MOST IMPRESSIVE,LIBERAL, PROGRESSIVE, THEY'RE

STUDYING POLITICS.>> DO YOU THINK THERE'S A GAY

OR TRANS KID WHO WILL HAVE 20SBORING

ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO RUN FORPRESIDENT?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> I WANT TO CATCH UP TO GUY!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> I WANT TO CATCH UP TO GUY!

>> Larry: MAYBE WE'LL NEVERKNOW THIS ANSWER, BUT --

>> IT'S UNKNOWABLE.

>> Larry: BUT I THINK IT WAS AGREAT DECISION.

I THINK MANY OF THESE THINGS AREJUST A FIRST STEP IN THE REST OF

THESE THINGS.

>> IN MY LIFETIME, I NEVERTHOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE A CULTURAL

MOMENT WHERE ONE WEEK WE HAVE,YOU KNOW, THIS MAJOR DECISION ON

MARRIAGE EQUALITY, AND THENWEEKS BEFORE THAT WE HAVE, YOU

KNOW, LAVERNE, A BLACK TRANSWOMAN, ON THE COVER OF FOUR

MAJOR NATIONAL MAGAZINES...

(APPLAUSE)THAT WASN'T EVEN POSSIBLE IN MY

GROWING UP.

>> Larry: AND ALL THAT, OBAMASAID THE N WORD ON A PODCAST
