  • GOOD EVENING.

  • WHAT A CRAZY, SAD DAY.

  • A DAY THAT WILL GO DOWN AS A DARK ONE IN THE LONG HISTORY OF

  • AMERICA.

  • WE'VE ALL SAT TODAY GLUED TO THE PICTURES OF TRUMP'S SUPPORTERS

  • BREACHING THE CAPITOL, FIGHTING WITH POLICE, SHOUTING IN THE

  • CHAMBERS OF CONGRESS, OR FLAGRANTLY POPPING OFF A SELFIE

  • AS THEY SIT WITH THEIR FEET UP IN OUR GOVERNMENT'S OFFICES.

  • THEN, UNDER THE PRETENSE OF TRYING TO CALM THE SITUATION,

  • THEIR HERO, THE PRESIDENT, RELEASED A MESSAGE THIS

  • AFTERNOON TO TELL THOSE SUPPORTERS, "YOU'RE SPECIAL, WE

  • LOVE YOU."

  • I WOULDN'T WANT TO EVEN IMAGINE HIS TREATMENT OR RESPONSE TO

  • THOSE PEOPLE, HAD THEY BEEN WEARING BLACK LIVES MATTER HATS

  • INSTEAD OF RED MAGA ONES.

  • AND AS I WATCHED ALL THE NETWORKS AND FLIPPED THROUGH THE

  • CHANNELS, ALL THE COMMENTATORS KEPT CRYING OUT THE SAME THING--

  • "BUT THIS IS AMERICA!" "HOW IS THIS AMERICA?"

  • IT FELT SAD, IT FELT WRONG, BUT MAINLY IT FELT HOPELESS.

  • BUT I HOPE WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, AND WHEN WE REFLECT ON

  • WHAT HAPPENED ON THIS AWFUL DAY, WE WILL STILL HAVE HOPE.

  • BECAUSE I THINK IF THERE IS ONE THING WE CAN HAVE AFTER THE LAST

  • MONTH IN THIS COUNTRY, IT IS HOPE.

  • AS AN OUTSIDER GROWING UP IN ENGLAND, I LOOKED TO AMERICA AS

  • THIS BEACON OF LIGHT AND POSSIBILITY.

  • A PLACE WHERE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.

  • A PLACE YOU'D BE LUCKY TO WORK.

  • A PLACE YOU'D FANTASIZE ABOUT LIVING.

  • A PLACE WHICH GIVES AN INDIVIDUAL MORE OPPORTUNITY THAN

  • THEY WOULD EVER HAVE ELSEWHERE, YET CARES FOR THEIR FELLOW MAN.

  • AND YES, TODAY PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THOSE

  • PICTURES FROM WASHINGTON AND WONDERED WHAT ON EARTH HAPPENED

  • TO THIS GREAT COUNTRY.

  • BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE, THEY KNOW THAT THE AMERICA THEY ADMIRE

  • STILL EXISTS.

  • THEY KNOW THAT THE AMERICA THAT SO MANY ASPIRE TO, WILL BE BACK.

  • IT WAS JUST HIJACKED BY A LUNATIC AND HIS CRAZY ARMY FOR

  • THE LAST FOUR YEARS.

  • BUT THAT'S ABOUT TO END.

  • IN TWO WEEKS, ON THOSE SAME STEPS WHERE THAT MOB FOUGHT AND

  • PUSHED PAST THE POLICE, JOE BIDEN WILL BE SWORN IN AS THE

  • PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

  • IN TWO WEEKS, ON THOSE SAME STEPS WHERE THAT MOB FOUGHT AND

  • PUSHED PAST THE POLICE, KAMALA HARRIS WILL BE SWORN IN AS THE

  • VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

  • IN TWO WEEKS, ON THOSE SAME STEPS WHERE THAT MOB FOUGHT AND

  • PUSHED PAST THE POLICE, TWO NEW SENATORS WILL WALK UP TO TAKE

  • THEIR SEATS IN THE CONGRESS.

  • A 33-YEAR-OLD JEWISH MAN, AND AN AFRICAN AMERICAN PASTOR, WHOSE

  • MOTHER ONCE PICKED COTTON IN FIELDS, AND NOW SHE PICKED HER

  • SON IN THE POLLS AS THE NEW SENATOR.

  • IN TWO WEEKS, ON THOSE SAME STEPS WHERE THAT MOB FOUGHT AND

  • PUSHED PAST THE POLICE, THE PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGED AND

  • INSTIGATED THAT VIOLENCE, DONALD TRUMP, HIS CHILDREN, RUDY

  • GIULIANI, THEY'RE ALL GOING TO NEED A TOURIST PASS TO GET IN,

  • AS THEY HAVE LOST THE PRESIDENCY, THE HOUSE AND NOW

  • THE SENATE.

  • THEIR ALLY LINDSEY GRAHAM WAS RIGHT AFTER ALL, WHEN HE

  • TWEETED, "IF WE NOMINATE TRUMP, WE WILL GET DESTROYED, AND WE

  • WILL DESERVE IT."

  • TODAY WAS THEIR LAST DANCE AT THE WORST PARTY ANY OF US HAVE

  • EVER BEEN TO.

  • SO, HAVE HOPE.

  • YOU'VE SEEN IN THESE PAST FEW WEEKS THAT VOTING COUNTS, CHANGE

  • IS COMING, SCIENCE IS REAL, VACCINES ARE ON THE WAY.

  • I REALLY DO BELIEVE THERE ARE BETTER TIMES ARE

  • AHEAD.

  • EXCEPT FOR THIS GUY, WHO-- WHO CAME TO A PROTEST DRESSED AS

  • EVERY MEMBER OF THE VILLAGE PEOPLE.

  • I DON'T KNOW IF BETTER TIMES ARE AHEAD FOR HIM, IAN, WHAT IS THAT

  • GUISE A STORY, WHAT ARE YOU DOINGK GOING TO A PROTEST, WHAT

  • ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR, I THOUGHT I WOULD WEAR THIS.

  • >> THEY CANCELED BURNING MAN THIS YEAR AND THAT GUY IS

  • SPINNING OUT EVER SINCE.

  • WELL, WE WOKE UP TO MUCH BETTER NEWS THIS MORNING, SO LET'S TALK

  • ABOUT THAT.

  • AS I MENTIONED AT THE BEGINNING, THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES WON

  • BOTH GEORGIA RUNOFF RACES LAST NIGHT, WHICH MEANS THAT THE

  • DEMOCRATS HAVE OFFICIALLY TAKEN CONTROL OF THE SENATE.

  • (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) IS IN ONE OF THE RACES RAF

  • YEAL WARNOCK DEFEATED KELLY LOAFER LETTER, THE HISTORIC WIN

  • MAKES WARNOCK GEORGIA'S FIRST BLACK SENATOR.

  • AND SO FAR TRUMP'S SUPPORTERS ARE TAKING IT REALLY WELL.

  • HIS VICTORY WAS A TRULY HISTORIC MOMENT THAT THE REVEREND GOT TO

  • ENJOY FOR THREE WHOLE HOUR THIS MORNING.

  • I MEAN BY THE WAY, JUDGING BY HER APPEARANCE, MI GOING TO

  • ASSUME THAT WHEN KELLY LOEFFLER HEARD SHE LOST HER IMMEDIATE

  • REACTION WAS JUST TO GO AND SPEAK TO THE MANAGER.

  • GEORGIAARY OWE NEWLY ELECTED SENATOR JON OSOV IS ONLY 33

  • YEARS OLD MAKING HIM THE FIRST MILLENIAL SENATOR.

  • 3 APPROXIMATE YEARS OLD, IT FEELS ODD FOR ME TO BE 11 AREAS

  • OLDER THAN A SENATOR.

  • I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO GROW UP PRETTY QUICK.

  • >> I STARTED A POD CAST AT THE AGE OF 33.

  • I FEEL TERRIBLE ABOUT MYSELF RIGHT NOW.

  • >> I MEAN 33 YEARS.

  • JOE BIDEN'S BEEN RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT LONGER THAN HE'S BEEN

  • ALIVE.

  • BUT ELECTING A MILLENNIAL IS GOOD NEWS.

  • THIS MEANS THE SENATE WILL FINALLY HAVE SOMEONE TO SET UP

  • THEIR WIRELESS PRINTER.

  • AND HERE'S THE THING-- PEOPLE ONLINE NOTICED THAT

  • OSSOFF HAS POSTED SOME PRETTY NERDY TWEETS FROM THE PAST.

  • LIKE THIS ONE.

  • "PITCHFORK MEDIA, LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR WRITE-UP OF THE

  • NEW IMAGINE DRAGONS ALBUM."

  • IT'S A BIG CHANGE.

  • HE'S TWEETING ABOUT IMAGINE DRAGONS.

  • WHEREAS MOST OF THESE OTHER SENATORS HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE

  • THE DAYS WHEN THERE WERE ACTUAL DRAGONS.

  • I THINK IT SHOULD JUST BE A BLANKET RULE THAT IF YOU'VE EVER

  • TWEETED TO "PITCHFORK" ABOUT AN IMAGINE DRAGONS ALBUM, YOU

  • SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO DECIDE WHAT PEOPLE'S HEALTHCARE LOOKS

  • LIKE.

  • BUT MY FAVORITE THING JON OSSOFF TWEETED WAS A LINK TO "ANIME LES

  • MIS."

  • LOOK AT THAT I MEAN, IF THAT GUY CAN BRIDGE

  • THE GAP BETWEEN TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NERD CULTURES, IMAGINE

  • WHAT HE'LL BE ABLE TO DO FOR AMERICA.

  • THERE IT IS, RIGHT THERE.

  • THAT'S THE LITTLE THERE'S THE LITTLE SLIVER OF

  • HOPE WE WERE LOOKING FOR.

GOOD EVENING.
