We are in Philly,officially covering
the DemocraticNational Convention.
And I'm so excited,our guest tonight--
New York SenatorKirsten Gillibrand
-is joining us, everybody.-(cheering, applause)
Good times, good times.
And speaking of excitement,is everyone excited
about having the firstfemale nominee for president?
America's first female,'cause I am.
I'm not gonna lie, I am.
Yeah.It's so great to be here
when America takes thesemajor steps forward.
And it's also excitingbecause it's a first.
First anythings are exciting,you know. Yeah.
First-first day of school,you know,
first comment on Instagram.First! Uh...
First time you had sex.
Yeah, first timeyou had sex right. Uh...
The point is...the point is yesterday
was a historic occasion.
And now we're joinedto celebrate that history,
uh, with Desi Lydic, everybody.
Desi Lydic, who is on theconvention floor as we speak.
-(cheering, applause)-Hey there, Desi.
Trevor, let metell you something.
In this countrya lot of bars give women
free drinks on Tuesdaysand call it ladies night.
But last night wasthe real (bleep) ladies night.
You realizebefore yesterday, America had
131 male presidential nominees,
zero female nominees
and zero squirrel nominees.
And after 240 yearsand 56 elections,
women have finallyedged out squirrels.
Look, I knowHillary kept it low-key
and acceptedthe nomination by video
'cause she classy like that,
but this was so huge.
She deserved to ride inon a shooting star
like Katy Perryat the Super Bowl.
Well, she really isa firework, Desi.
And, uh, people must have been
losing their (bleep)in the convention.
Yeah, they still are.
I wish I could stay in hereforever, because outside
people are just kind of like,"Oh, first female nominee? Cool.
Hey, look, Trump'sdoing an AMA on reddit."
I-I feel you, Desi,I feel you. Even some major
American newspapers,in fact, used pictures
of Hillary's husbandwhen talking about
how she made history.
Or-or should I say "her-story?"
No, "history" is fine.
But seriously, what the hell?
This is a huge dealfor this country.
You know, everyone talks abouthow advanced America is
compared tothe rest of the world,
but we suckat having women in power.
Want to knowwho got here before us?
Pretty much everybody.Argentina, Germany, Mongolia,
Liberia. (bleep), Pakistan'salready assassinated
a female leader.
Might have gone a little too fardown progress lane.
There's a real sweet spotyou want to stay in, but...
No, Desi, it's-it's funnyyou say that,
because when Obama won,even black people in Africa
were losing their (bleep),and he's only half African.
Trevor, Hillary's full woman.
And look, look, I knowmaybe some conservative women
don't exactlyfeel like celebrating
a Hillary victory,but you can hate Hillary
and still lovewhat happened last night.
Because her victoryempowers all women.
Even if you want to usethat power to say that
Hillary planned Benghazifrom a secret e-mail server
that she boughtwith Goldman Sachs donations.
You can do that.
Hillary busted throughthat glass ceiling
and you can follow herthrough it,
even if it's justto take her down.
It's... God, it's just,it's really beautiful
when you think about itlike that.
It really is beautiful,and it's long overdue.
Men have beenrunning the White House
for hundreds of years.
They've actuallyscrewed a lot of (bleep) up.
Yeah, and now it's timefor women
to screw some (bleep) up.
So true. Thank you, Desi.
