  • Thanks for being here.

  • You're the only people not protesting something right now.

  • [audience cheers and applauses] So, thank you.

  • A lot of protests going on at the airports all over the country really

  • because of the president's travel ban.

  • At the airport in Los Angeles there was chaos and confusion,

  • nobody could get in or out before the protests start.

  • That was before.

  • If you haven't heard, this is what happened over the weekend.

  • On Friday, the president gave an order banning people from seven countries from entering the United States

  • including people with green cards.

  • And then on Saturday the president screened Finding Dory at the White House.

  • I don't get political but I will say that I am against one of those two things.

  • Like I said I don't get political

  • so I'm not going to talk about the travel ban.

  • I'm just going to talk about the very non-political and family friendly People's Choice Award winning Finding Dory.

  • [audience cheers and applause]

  • Now of course Finding Dory is about a fish named Dory and Dory lives in Australia.

  • And these are her parents and they live in America and I don't know what religion they are,

  • but her dad sounds a little Jewish.

  • Doesn't matter.

  • Dory arrives in America with her friends Marlin and Nemo and she ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall,

  • and they all have to get over the wall.

  • And you won't believe it but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out.

  • [audience cheers and applause]

  • Now this is Becky, she is not important,

  • just a hilarious, comedic element that makes a wonderful storytelling.

  • Even though Dory gets into America,

  • she ends up separated from her family.

  • But the other animals help Dory.

  • Animals that don't even need her,

  • animals that don't even have anything in common with her

  • They help her even though they are completely different colors because that's what you do when you see someone in need,

  • you help them.

  • [audience cheers and applause]

  • So that is what I hope everyone who's watching Finding Dory has learned.

  • Tune in next week when I explain women's rights talking about the movie Mr. Wrong.

  • Right now let's dance!

Thanks for being here.
