Steve has a way of not talking politics with people. (1:49)

[CHEERS, WHISTLES & APPLAUSE]

WHEN YOU HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER INVOLVED IN A WAR

PEOPLE WANT TO TALK POLITICS WITH YOU.

AND I'LL TELL YOU THIS:I HATE TALKING POLITICS.

'CAUSE PEOPLE GET TOO HEATED, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

THEY GET TOO PASSIONATEABOUT IT SOMETIMES.

IT'S JUST AN OPINION, YOU KNOW.

ARE YOU FOR ABORTION OR AGAINST IT?

I'M FOR IT. I'M AGAINST IT! NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

YOU GET A TWO BY FOUR ACROSS THE BACK OF THE LEGS.

SO HERE'S HOW YOU AVOID

ANY POLITICAL CONFRONTATION AT ALL, OKAY,

THERE'S TWO EASY RULES THAT I'M ABOUT TO GIVE YOU,

NUMBER ONE, YOU DELIVER THE ONE SENTENCE

I WILL TELL YOU IN A FEW SECONDS.

NUMBER TWO, AFTER YOUDELIVER THE SENTENCE, WALK AWAY.

THAT'S IT. SO IF SOMEBODY'S LIKE,

HEY, ARE YOU FOR THE WAR OR AGAINST IT?

THIS IS HOW YOU RESPOND: YOU KNOW, LAST TIME, I CHECKED,THIS WAS AMERICA.

[LAUGHTER, CHEERS & APPLAUSE]

NOW, BY THE TIME THEY REALIZE IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE,

YOU'RE GONE. ALL RIGHT.

I LOVE NEW YORK CITY. THIS IS A GREAT CITY.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

YES.

YOU GET TO SEE A LOT IN THIS CITY.

I HAVE TO ASK YOU A QUESTION.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SOMEBODY SO GAY

YOU'RE ACTUALLY WORRIEDFOR HIS OWN SAFETY?

- [LAUGHTER] - GOOD. OKAY.

I WAS DRIVING THE OTHER DAY. ALMOST GOT IN A CAR ACCIDENT.
