[ cheers and applause well guys, today the senate finally began debating the $1.9 trillion covid relief bill
i guess my first question is: how are we still debating this [ light laughter ] the only thing built up more than this bill is oprah's interview with meghan markle [ light laughter ] just release it! do it already. yeah let's go already in the time between the first stimulus and this one, 300 new streaming services have been created. [ laughter and applause normally, when you promise someone $1,400 and wait this long to deliver, two guys in tracksuits are knocking on your door with a baseball bat [ laughter ] it's like, "i guess they didn't cover the spread, that's unfortunate. [ laughter ] that's unfortunate for you and your family. [ laughter ] seriously, at this rate, covid is gonna pass before this bill does [ light laughter ] meanwhile, as if it wasn't held up enough, republican senator ron johnson forced a full reading of the 628-page bill, which is expected to take about ten hours.
and to make it feel even longer, johnson hired gilbert gottfried to do the reading. [ laughter ] "congress shall henceforth make appropriations for the following. [ applause ] yeah, this means for ten hours, ted cruz wasn't the the most hated senator in congress. [ laughter ] on the bright side, after he causes a ten hour delay, johnson will immediately get a a job offer from delta [ laughter ] "mr. johnson, we think you're delta material all the way." ten hours? wow. i've never seen anything it. maybe he'll hire gilbert to do the pilot readings "to your left is the grand canyon to the --" [ laughter ] senator johnson is against the relief bill and his reasoning is pretty unique take a look at this. >> these sums are just incomprehensible if you stack dollar bills, one on top of each other, a trillion dollar stack is over 130 thousand miles high.
it would reach more than halfway to the moon. that's what we're talking about indebting our -- our children with into the future a stack of $1 bills that reaches more than halfway to the moon [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what he was speaking to the 0% of people who don't understand that a trillion is a lot [ laughter ] americans were like, "sure, we needed the money to support my family, but then i heard that moon analogy [ laughter ] that really hit home for me. [ laughter ] "if you stack those dollar bills you -- no, i haven't been drinking too much, honey [ laughter ] if you stack dollar bills, it's almost halfway on the way to the moon ever think about that? [ laughter ] no, i never thought about that it got weird when johnson bought a sandwich for lunch and said,"$9 if you stack that up, that's
one-quarter of the sandwich. [ laughter ] i'm crazy? meanwhile, jeff bezos is so bored he's like, "should we try it [ laughter ] i don't know, why not? then, this morning from the senate floor, republican john kennedy wanted to emphasize how much the government has spent on recent relief bills, and he chose a -- he chose a strange way to do it watch this >> we spent a lot of money, about $4 trillion. that's 4-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: how easy is it to get a senate seat? [ laughter and applause you just do it get one? again, that was for the zero, zero people who don't get that 4 trillion, is a lot of money. we get it. [ laughter ] it's almost halfway to the moon
almost not quite. today the senate was working, of course, but the house of representatives canceled their session because there were rumors of a possible attack on the capitol. so here, let's see what members of the house did with their day off. first up, congressman jack bergman went to the movies and slowly unwrapped hard candies. [ laughter ] next up, congressman anthony gonzalez, threw on sunglasses and told people he was pitbull. oh, that's cool. [ laughter and applause here's congressman mark amodei he reprised his role as the kid in "jerry maguire. aw so -- "you know a human head weighs --" yeah, say it buddy do the hits. up next, congressman rick crawford. he sang bass in an old-timey barbershop quartet [ laughter ]

[ laughter ] yeah, the interview's getting a lot of attention meanwhile, prince andrew was like, "yeah, yeah, yeah. keep focusing on those guys. nothing else to worry about, right? [ laughter ]
"see what those guys are doing that's the big controversy." [ laughter ] and finally, i saw that chili's is celebrating its birthday this month with one gallon margaritas to-go take a look at this thing.
