if your cityis one of those

that didn't burn downlast night, welcome to the show.

-(laughter) -I feel likeI have to keep saying this

just so I know it's real,but Donald Trump will be

the next presidentof the United States.

And because of that, a lotof blue cities are seeing red.

WOMAN: Overnight, protests erupted from coast to coast,

with thousands angry over Trump's election.

WOMAN 2: Protests broke out in

at least 38 cities around the country.

MAN: Some 10,000 protesters here in Manhattan alone.

MAN 2: People shut down a major highway through downtown L.A.

WOMAN: Some in the crowd threw rocks and bottles

at police officers.

MAN: Police using tear gas

on some of them.

MAN 2: In Houston,

angry demonstrators taking turns

beating a papier-mâché likeness of Trump with a bat.

(laughter and groaning)

Did you notice how hitting itwith a bat did nothing to it?

(laughter)

It's almost the perfect analogyfor Donald Trump.

Nothing seems to destroythe papier-mâché of his mind.

I'm glad people are protesting,though, you know?

It's importantfor the world to see

that not all of America supportsDonald Trump.

I am glad about that protest.

But I will say this, though.

Protest is productive,

but we have to be carefulabout how we protest.

You can't be throwing bottlesat the police,

you can't be burning effigies.

That's not what Americandemocracy's all about, you know?

Going too far and letting angerconsume us is...

You know, if you're not careful,

you'll become the hatethat you're protesting against.

Because setting fire to (bleep)on the streets

is just going to set us back.

So protest, but thinkof your protest like sex.

You can be loud and wildand do it all night long,

but when something starts toburn, you should probably stop.

-(laughter)-That's all I'm saying.

-(applause and cheering)-That's all I'm saying.
