  • -Well, guys the big news, of course,

  • is that the president and first lady

  • have tested positive for coronavirus.

  • In any other time in history,

  • this would be the craziest story of all time.

  • In the year 2020, it's Friday.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Seriously when the news broke, 2020 was like,

  • "Come on, you had to see this one coming."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I actually didn't see this coming.

  • Last night, I went to bed thinking tonight's

  • whole monologue would be about NASA calling off their mission

  • to send a $23 million toilet to space.

  • [ Laughter ] -What?

  • -We had 300 jokes on that. -[ Groans ]

  • -Unlike the presidential debate,

  • I hope people can learn from this.

  • If the most powerful, most protected person on Earth

  • can get COVID-19, anyone can.

  • And no one should have to suffer through this horrible virus.

  • But, yeah, in the middle of night,

  • Trump confirmed the test results by tweeting...

  • He tweeted that around 1:00 a.m.

  • Usually, that'd make people panic,

  • but for Trump, that actually shows he's feeling normal.

  • [ Light laughter ] Once the news broke,

  • tons of well wishes poured in from leaders around the country.

  • Some Democrats even meant them.

  • [ Laughter ] Joe Biden tweeted...

  • Trump was so touched. He was like, "That's sweet.

  • Give him a like, but not a retweet."

  • [ Light laughter ]

  • Of course, support for the president and the first lady

  • is also coming in from around the world.

  • -Russia's Vladimir Putin wished President Trump well

  • in a telegram according to Russian state media.

  • ...the telegram reportedly said.

  • -Wait, a telegram?

  • [ Laughter ] -Right?

  • -What happened? Was the messenger pigeon in the shop?

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Putin was like [ Russian accent ] Sorry,

  • is closest thing we have to email.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • [ Normal voice ] It wasn't just a telegram.

  • Putin also sent Trump a get-well Edible Arrangement.

  • Of course, in Russia, Edible Arrangements

  • are filled with rocks and expired beets.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • All this information came out last night,

  • but it wasn't the White House

  • that broke the news. Listen to this.

  • -It was not the White House that informed the American public

  • or informed us reporters

  • that Hope Hicks had reported positive for this virus.

  • It was Jen Jacobs, a reporter at Bloomberg News.

  • -Actually, Bob Woodward also knew,

  • but he was saving the story

  • for his next book in eight months.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • When it comes to keeping secrets, the White House

  • is worse than the "Big Brother" house.

  • Luckily, some people in Trump's inner circle are okay.

  • -Vice President Pence and the Second Lady, Karen Pence,

  • have tested negative this morning.

  • That's according to their press secretary.

  • Obviously they were quite concerned.

  • -That's right, Mike Pence got tested.

  • For the nurse, it was like sticking a cotton swab

  • up a giant cotton swab.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Yeah, it was a roller coaster of a day for Pence.

  • Here he is when he found out he might have been exposed

  • to the virus.

  • And here he is celebrating that he is completely fine.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Meanwhile all this news is leading to questions

  • about the next presidential debate.

  • -Will the next presidential debate even happen?

  • It is supposed to be in 13 days.

  • If you've tested positive for COVID,

  • you are supposed to isolate at least 10 days

  • after the symptoms first appear.

  • -Yep, the debate could be postponed --

  • not 'cause of the coronavirus,

  • just 'cause no one wants to moderate it.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Mitch McConnell even floated the idea

  • of holding a virtual debate.

  • That should be good. They couldn't stop interrupting

  • each other in person, and now they're gonna try it over Zoom?

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Can we leave the meeting?

  • Let's change gears here.

  • Today, I saw that a New York staple is returning tomorrow

  • after a six-month absence...

  • -Horse-drawn carriages are returning to Central Park

  • on Saturday.

  • Carriage drivers held a news conference in the park.

  • Rides were halted in March

  • when nonessential businesses were closed.

  • -Good news is everyone agrees that masks are good

  • when you are sitting right behind a horse.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • New York is a lot different than it was six months ago.

  • For 50 bucks, you can hitch a ride around a park

  • or buy a two-bedroom apartment.

  • [ Laughter, groaning ]

  • It's been a weird time for the horses, too,

  • because the past six months, they've been working over Zoom.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And finally, I saw that Brach's is now selling candy corn

  • that tastes like Thanksgiving dinner

  • with flavors like green bean, turkey, and stuffing.

  • [ People groaning ]

  • Hey, don't knock it until you spit it out.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • If that was the vaccine for coronavirus,

  • people still wouldn't eat them. [ Laughter ]

  • At this point, 2020 is just rubbing it in.

-Well, guys the big news, of course,
