Gabriel Iglesias: Hot and Fluffy Season 1, Ep 0101 08/04/2007 Views: 80,445

Gabriel Iglesias has noticed that people in the U.S. are more interested in voting for "American Idol" than voting for the American president. (2:15)

EARLIER, TOO, THEY SAID,

"GABRIEL, WHEN YOU GET TO

"DO YOUR SPECIAL, ARE YOU GONNA

"DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE COUNTRY ?

"ARE YOU GONNA TALK

ABOUT POLITICS ?"

WELL, I'M GONNA TALK ABOUT,

FIRST OF ALL, HOW I LOVE

THIS COUNTRY, AND I WOULDN'T

WANT TO LIVE ANYWHERE ELSE.

I KNOW THAT HALF THE WORLD

RIGHT NOW THINKS THAT OUR

LEADER IS THE DEVIL.

AND MOST OF US WOULD AGREE.

HE'S NOT-- EH.

I DON'T HAVE TO MAKE

FUN OF THE PRESIDENT--

HE DOES IT BY HIMSELF.

HE DOES IT ALL BY HIMSELF.

EVERY TIME HE COMES ON T.V.,

I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR

WHAT HE HAS TO SAY,

ESPECIALLY DURING PRESS

CONFERENCES, RIGHT ?

( high-pitched voice )

"MR. PRESIDENT, QUESTION.

IT'S BEEN OVER A YEAR--

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR KATRINA ?"

( imitating George W. Bush )

"WE'RE GONNA FIND HER.

"THAT'S RIGHT.

"AND WE'RE GONNA BRING

"KATRINA TO JUSTICE.

"WE HAVE EVERY REASON

"TO BELIEVE THAT KATRINA

"IS CONNECTED TO AL-QAEDA.

"QAEDA, KATRINA.

THEY BOTH START WITH A K."

OUR PRESIDENT GOT ELECTED--

I DIDN'T VOTE FOR HIM,

BUT THEN AGAIN, I DIDN'T VOTE

FOR THE OTHER GUY, EITHER.

I WAS JUST LIKE--

HOW BUSH WON IS BEYOND ME.

AMERICANS, WE LOVE TO VOTE,

BUT WE DON'T VOTE

FOR PRESIDENTS.

WE VOTE FOR THINGS

LIKE AMERICAN IDOL.

BECAUSE THAT'S FUN.

VOTING FOR PRESIDENTS

IS NOT FUN.

VOTING FOR AMERICAN--

"SHE BANGS ! SHE BANGS !"

THAT'S WHAT THEY SHOULD DO

FOR PRESIDENTS, YOU KNOW ?

JUST PUT BOTH GUYS ON T.V.

FOR ONE HOUR, CALL IT

SOMETHING CATCHY, LIKE,

"WHO'S GONNA RUN THIS BITCH ?"

YOU PUT 'EM ON T.V. FOR

AN HOUR, LET 'EM ARGUE,

30 MINUTES INTO THE SPECIAL,

YOU PUT AN 800 NUMBER

ON THE SCREEN AND SAY,

"CAST YOUR VOTE," RIGHT ?

( imitating phone ringing )

"YOU'VE REACHED

"THE PRESIDENTIAL HOT LINE.

"FOR GEORGE BUSH, PRESS THREE.

"JOHN KERRY, PRESS FOUR.

OTHER OPTIONS, PRESS FIVE."

YOU DON'T LIKE EITHER ONE.

PRESS FIVE.

( tone )

"PLEASE HOLD."

( humming "Hail to the Chief" )

( phone ringing )

( imitating Bill Clinton )

"I KNEW YOU'D BE BACK.

"THAT'S RIGHT.

YOU KNOW YOU MISS YOUR DADDY."
