So today is officially PresidentObama's last day if office.
And I can tell youthat the Marine One helicopter
that's goingto carry him off tomorrow
better havesome extra juice in it
-'cause people are not readyto let go. -(laughter)
-We coming with you, Barry!We coming. -(laughter)
Tomorrow's gonna be historic.
We have no idea
what Trump's inaugurationis going to be like,
but we do know he's personallybeen hard at work on it.
WOMAN: Yesterday Trump tweeted a photo of himself quoting,
"Writing my inaugural address
"at the winter White House Mar-a-Lago three weeks ago.
Looking forward to Friday."
MAN: When you take a closer look, it appears
that Trump is writing the first draft of his speech
with a Sharpie on what appears
to be the first page of a brand-new legal pad.
MAN 2: One Twitter user pointed out,
"That desk sure looks exactly like
"the Mar-a-Lago receptionist desk
rather than a personal office."
Would the president-elect reallybe writing the speech there?
(imitating Trump):Writing my inaugural address.
With a pen and paper? Really?
I'd believe it more
if it was Trump tweetinghis inaugural address.
-(laughter)-Then I'd believe it.
By the way, that's an iPhone.It just looks big in his hands.
Although, I will say this.I will say this.
The idea that Donald Trump wasworking at the reception desk
while he was doing thatis pretty funny, 'cause just...
He was sitting-- that's a...--at the reception of Mar-a-Lago.
And I know how I am.When I'm writing,
I can get distractedwhen someone speaks to me
if I say something else,and then,
the thing that distracted meends up in the writing.
I'm sure you do that, as well.
So now,Trump's inaugural address
is probably gonna be like,"My fellow Americans,
I say to you now the bathroom isdown the hall on the left!"
-(laughter) -That's... "No!Oh, I knew this would happen!
"We need to unite as one.
-Let me transfer youto housekeeping!" -(laughter)
"May God blessthe United...
-We hope you enjoyed your stay!"-(laughter)
Now, this is one of thosesituations where, honestly,
I don't believepeople should waste their rage.
You know, I see people going,"It's a lie!
Why is he lyingabout where he is?"
Calm down. Is Donald Trumpreally sitting down
writing his speech at that desk?No.
But that's not the point.
It's not a lie.It's an ad.
America, you haveto get used to the fact
that you've electeda reality-star president.
And you should know a publicitystill when you see one.
Donald Trump was just promotingtomorrow's premiere
of the 45th seasonof the TV show President.
-(laughter)-Yes, that's all he was doing.
It's also the final season,by the way,
-but that's a separate subject.-(laughter, applause & cheering)
This is just what Trump does!This is all he does!
I mean, look.I mean, look.
Here he is a few years agohaving his photo taken
while pretending to say,"You're fired!"
-Donald, look here.-(camera shutters clicking)
-You ready?-MAN: Yeah, we're ready.
How is that a president?
-Oh, gosh, we're so (bleep).Oh, man. -(laughter)
Oh, I'm sorry.Like, you just...
No, it's just, like...'Cause it's not...
It's just the brain.
Okay, this is whatI don't understand.
He says, "Are you ready?"
-But then he doesn't say it.He goes... -(laughter)
"Are you read..." Like, justspeak. It's like he makes...
It's like he thinks the wordsare gonna go into the photo.
He's just, "Are you ready?"
And you got to understand,we're only going to see
more photos like thisover the next four years.
You know,Trump's gonna put pictures up.
"Here I am balancing thefederal budget all on my own!"
"Hey, here I am bringing jobsback from Mexico!"
"This is me defeating ISIS,single-handedly.
Look how much I killed them!"
-(laughter)-Get used to it.
We've got to get used to it
becauseTrump is all about promotion.
It's an essential ingredient
to any authoritarian,to be honest.
You know else does that?Vladimir Putin.
He does the same thing.
None of those picturesare candid.
That is not somethingthat just happened, right?
-(laughter)-You know that he planned that.
I bet Vladimir Putinis like a girl on Instagram.
He's just like, "No, no,high angle, high angle!"
-(laughter) -"No, not so close.Not so close.
"Make sure you get Crimeain the background!
Make sure. Make sure you getCrimea in the background."
-(laughter, applause & cheering)-"Can you see it?
Can you see it?"
It's what these people do.
