  • Of course, it's sometimes fun to catch the smaller stories that

  • slip through the news cracks.

  • Here's a fun one: we might be closer to nuclear war.

  • Because, on saturday, Trump announced that the U.S. will

  • withdraw from a nuclear arms treaty with Russia.

  • Is this because of "Creed II"?

  • ( Laughter ) "This one is for Apollo."

  • The deal Trump wants to pull out of is the 1987

  • intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty that was signed by

  • Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

  • So Trump is reopening a 30-year old confrontation.

  • You know what that means, the '80s are back, baby!

  • ( Cheering ) Yeah!

  • Hey!

  • That was Trump's heyday!

  • That was it right there!

  • That's when Trump was Trump.

  • (As Trump) "Hey everyone, we're bringing

  • back nuclear standoffs with the Ruskis.

  • Now if you'll excuse me, I got to pound down this mcd.l.t. before my

  • hot date with Ms. Pac-man."

  • (Laughter ) And Trump picked a strange forum

  • to announce he was pulling out of a major international

  • agreement: he did it in a campaign rally in Nevada.

  • >> Russia has violated the agreement.

  • We're not gonna let them violate a nuclear agreement and

  • go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to.

  • Stephen: "Do weapons"?

  • ( Laughter ) What the hell does that mean?

  • You can't do weapons.

  • It's not lunch, or Dallas.

  • ( Laughter ) Now, you might be saying,

  • "Stephen, I don't want to get vaporized in a thermonuclear war

  • as much as the next guy, but at least Trump finally did

  • something Putin wouldn't like."

  • Oh, what simple arguments you have, made up person.

  • because the fact is Putin likes this withdraw

  • In fact, "Moscow proposed a joint termination of the treaty as far back as

  • in 2007 so it could deploy intermediate-range missiles in

  • its south and east to counter Iran, Pakistan, and China."

  • That proposal was rejected, in part because George W. Bush

  • never paid prostitutes to pee on a bed.

  • (Cheering)

  • Allegedly.

  • We don't know.

  • We don't know.

  • He seems like fun.

  • ( Laughter ) Trump's decision has been panned

  • by former soviet president and man who just found out about

  • hats, Mikhail Gorbachev.

  • who said, the move is not the work of a great mind.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • ( cheers and applause )

  • I believe Mikhail Gorbachev has just won his second Nobel Prize

  • for "outstanding achievement in

  • d'uh."

  • We've got a great show for you tonight.
