    ON THE OTHER SIDE, FLORIDA IS STILL A MESS.
    YOU'LL RECALL ON ELECTION NIGHT THAT THE WINNERS IN THE SUNSHINE
    STATE WERE REPUBLICANS RON DESANTIS AND RICK SCOTT.
    BUT THE VOTE TALLY WAS SO CLOSE THAT FLORIDA HAS BEGUN AUTOMATIC
    RECOUNTS IN BOTH THE SENATE AND GOVERNOR'S RACES.
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) RECOUNT.
    HUGE RECOUNT FANS.
    RIGHT NOW, WE DON'T KNOW WHO WON.
    OF COURSE, THIS IS FLORIDA, SO ONCE THEY FACTOR THE WRITE-IN
    VOTES, WE MIGHT BE LOOKING AT SENATOR GATOR WEARING
    SUNGLASSES.
    ( LAUGHTER ) STRONG ON DEFENSE.
    NOW THE RECOUNTERS SAY THEY'LL HAVE RESULTS BY THURSDAY.
    THURSDAY...
    THIS IS SO NERVE-WRACKING, IT'S LIKE WAITING FOR RESULTS FROM
    THE DOCTOR.
    "YES, WE HAVE YOUR LAB WORK BACK, AND I'M SORRY... YOU HAVE
    DESANTIS.
    ( LAUGHTER ) YOU'LL WANT TO CALL ALL YOUR
    PREVIOUS PARTNERS AND LET THEM KNOW."
    ( LAUGHTER ) REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN SKEPTICAL
    OF THE RECOUNT.
    ONE G.O.P. CONGRESSMAN SAID, "FOR ALL I KNOW, THEY'RE STILL
    COUNTING BALLOTS FOR AL GORE BACK THERE!"
    ( LAUGHTER ) HEY, THAT'S NOT FUNNY!
    THEY ARE.
    ( LAUGHTER ) HANG IN THERE, AL.
    HANG IN THERE.
    ( LAUGHTER ) AND THIS MORNING, TRUMP TWEETED:
    (AS TRUMP): "THE FLORIDA ELECTION SHOULD BE CALLED IN
    FAVOR OF RICK SCOTT AND RON DESANTIS, IN THAT LARGE NUMBERS
    OF NEW BALLOTS SHOWED UP OUT OF NOWHERE, AND MANY BALLOTS ARE
    MISSING OR FORGED.
    AN HONEST VOTE COUNT IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE.
    BALLOTS MASSIVELY INFECTED.
    MUST GO WITH ELECTION NIGHT!" GO WITH ELECTION NIGHT?
    ( BOOING ) YOU CAN'T JUST PICK THE TIME
    THAT WAS BEST FOR YOU.
    (AS TRUMP): "MY TEAM WAS UP IN THE SEVENTH INNING, THEN I WENT
    TO BED, AND WHEN I WOKE UP, THEY HAD LOST.
    AN HONEST SCORE IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE!
    ( LAUGHTER ) MUST GO WITH SEVENTH INNING!"
    AND THESE AREN'T VOTES "OUT OF NOWHERE," THEY'RE ABSENTEE
    BALLOTS.
    IN FACT: FLORIDA ACCEPTS OVERSEAS AND MILITARY BALLOTS
    THROUGH NOV. 16, MEANING THAT TRUMP'S PLAN WOULD
    DISENFRANCHISE MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS AND AMERICANS ABROAD.
    YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO CELEBRATE VETERANS DAY BY TAKING AWAY
    THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE.
    YOU CELEBRATE BY POSTING A PICTURE OF YOUR HOT GRANDPA IN
    WORLD WAR II ON INSTAGRAM AND RAKING IN THE LIKES!
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) MEANWHILE, IN ARIZONA'S SENATE
    RACE, AFTER TRAILING ON ELECTION NIGHT, DEMOCRAT KYRSTEN SINEMA
    NOW LEADS REPUBLICAN MARTHA MCSALLY BY 1.5 PERCENTAGE
    POINTS.
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ARIZONA HAS A HEATED RACE, BUT
    IT'S A DRY HEAT.
    SO, PRETTY COMFORTABLE.
    ( LAUGHTER ) YOU'RE WELCOME.
    BUT UNLIKE FLORIDA, BOTH SIDES IN THIS ELECTION ARE SAYING
    EVERY BALLOT SHOULD BE COUNTED.
    IT'S BEEN SLOW BECAUSE 75% OF THE STATE'S ELECTORATE VOTES BY
    MAIL.
    THE OTHER 25% OF ARIZONANS WHISPER THEIR VOTE INTO A
    DREAMCATCHER.
    ( LAUGHTER ) NOW, THERE WAS A BRIEF
    CONTROVERSY ABOUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT SOME OF THE VOTES BECAUSE
    SIGNATURES DIDN'T MATCH, BUT A COURT RESOLVED THE ISSUE.
    TRUMP STILL FREAKED OUT, TWEETING, "JUST OUT-- IN
    ARIZONA, SIGNATURES DON'T MATCH.
    ELECTORAL CORRUPTION-- CALL FOR A NEW ELECTION?"
    SURE.
    HOW ABOUT 2016?
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
    THE PRESIDENT WAS IN PARIS THIS WEEKEND FOR THE 100TH
    ANNIVERSARY OF ARMISTICE DAY AND WAS SCHEDULED TO PAY HIS
    RESPECTS AT A U.S. MILITARY CEMETERY.
    THESE SOLDIERS FOUGHT TIRELESSLY THROUGH BRUTAL CONDITIONS, SO OF
    COURSE, TRUMP CANCELLED HIS TRIP TO THE CEMETERY DUE TO RAIN.
    WELL, YOU CAN'T BLAME HIM, HE'S ONLY GOT ONE UMBRELLA AND HE
    COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO BRING IT ON THE PLANE.
    ( LAUGHTER ) ( PIANO RIFF )
    TRUMP DID ATTEND THE CEREMONIES YESTERDAY, BUT THE OTHER LEADERS
    SAID MEAN THINGS, LIKE FRENCH PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON:
    >> PATRIOTISM IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF NATIONALISM.
    NATIONALISM IS A BETRAYAL OF PATRIOTISM BY SAYING OUR
    INTERESTS FIRST, WHO CARES ABOUT THE OTHERS.
    WE ERASE WHAT A NATION HOLDS DEAREST, WHAT GIVES IT LIFE,
    WHAT GIVES IT GRACE, AND WHAT IS ESSENTIAL.
    IT'S MORAL VALUES.
    >> STEPHEN: FIRST OF ALL, THESE FRENCH GUYS SOUND LIKE GIRLS.
    SECOND, I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT A MAN GAVE A SPEECH ABOUT
    THE IMPORTANCE OF MORAL VALUES AND EVERYONE SAYS HE WAS
    INSULTING OUR PRESIDENT.
    ( LAUGHTER ) BUT TRUMP DID HAVE ONE ALLY.
    UNFORTUNATELY, IT WASN'T AN ALLY, IT WAS VLADIMIR PUTIN.
    JUST LOOK AT TRUMP'S FACE WHEN PUTIN ARRIVED.
    SO HAPPY.
    I CAN JUST IMAGINE THEIR INNER-MONOLOGUES:
    (AS MACRON): "I AM LOOKING INTO THE EYES OF A SOCIOPATH."
    (AS MERKEL): "MEIN GOTT, THIS MONSTER WILL KILL US ALL."
    (AS TRUMP): S "MORE THAN A FEELING S
    MORE THAN A FEELING S WHEN I SEE VLADIMIR WALK MY
    WAY" S ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
    WE'VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT.
    What do you see FIRST? And is it accurate about who you are? It was for me!

    "Why are you talking to the microwave?" Being the spouse of an early-adopter has never been especially easy, but the arrival of the smart home - and voice-controlled systems like Amazon Alexa in particular - has certainly magnified the potential for confusion.
