Alright, let's talk about what everybody wants to talk about—politics.
Like you, many of you watching the Democratic debates, I noticed one of the candidates has been stealing my bits.
I'm talking about Andrew Yang.
Look what he's been doing.
Last spring I decided to give everyone in my audience free money.
And then at the first debate, he announced he wants to give everybody free money.
That was my idea, Yang.
Maybe you think that's just a coincidence.
But then a couple of weeks ago during a monologue, I filled Kristen Bell's mouth with whipped cream.
Perfectly normal—I just decided to fill her mouth with whipped cream.
It seemed like the right thing to do at the time.
Literally a week later, I see this.
He's filling a supporter's mouth with whipped cream.
That's not a coincidence.
I'm on to you, Yang.
So if you're watching this, I would like an explanation, because there is no way that anything that is happening is a coincidence right now.
Well, have a seat.
I guess you heard me talking about you.
What are you doing here?
I'm in town for the debates that are taking place here in Los Angeles on Thursday.
So you're just in the neighborhood?
Yes, just in the neighborhood.
I heard my name and came running.
You just wandered into the studio?
I left that door unlocked again.
All right, your fans are going to be very excited.
They're called the Yang Gang.
And they have been more aggressive than the Swifties people.
I mean, they've been blowing up my social media.
I can put a video of me and Jennifer Aniston on and they're saying, have Andrew Yang on!
And I'll put a puppy on.
And they're, have Andrew Yang on.
Well, I like both Jennifer Aniston and puppies.
And the Yang Gang knows this.
So thank you, Yang Gang.
First things first—all right, you want to give everybody in America $1000...
So where's mine?
I'm working on it.
Give me a little bit more than a year.
O.K., all right.
So where did you get this idea from?
And admit it.
It was from watching my show.
The idea goes back further than either of us.
Martin Luther King was fighting for this in the 1960s.
But we have to make this happen for families around the country, particularly for moms and women who are doing the sort of work that my wife is doing at home with our two boys, one of whom is autistic.
All right, well you can learn more about it on the website yang2020.com.
And I guess—I believe—but you know what?
The whipped cream thing.
How'd that happen?
It was a dark and stormy night in New Hampshire.
There was hot cocoa.
There was whipped cream.
And then a supporter said, Andrew, can I have some whipped cream?
And I said, sure.
And if a supporter asks you to do something and it seems harmless, I generally say yes.
I think you stole it from me.
Well, no matter whose idea it was, Ellen, I think we have a gift for everyone here, which is some whipped cream for you all to take home.
Everyone's getting whipped cream.
Because everyone loves whipped cream.
Yes, everyone does.
You know what?
I'm actually—this is perfect timing because this is like a day—we just finished 12 Days of Giveaways yesterday.
So they missed—the whole audience missed it.
And that was yesterday.
So at least you get whipped cream.
That's... yeah (Crowd cheering)
That's—and also, you're all coming back next year for one of my 12 Days of Giveaways.
♪ It's the most wonderful time of the year♪
♪ With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you♪ Andrew Yang!
