    Kinda cool to see what a rehearsal is like! I don’t really agree about travel ban being “pointless” though it seems very sensible to me. Its to stop the continued flow of virus from most infected countries which is how it got to US in first place. You need to contain it first as much as can then test and treat. The countries that have low rates have done this: ie: Hong Kong, Thailand, India etc. I actually agree with trump on that one!

    Stephen this 80 year old woman would slap you up the head!! What the hell is wrong with you?!!We are all out here watching you on TV and I cannot believe you could not do a monologue that is just as interesting as you normally do!!! instead you want to flop around like a lost puppy!! We are your audience and even those who had their bodies there are still out here in TV land watching you. So get yourself together for Christ’s Sake! And deliver as though people are out there!! The show must go on!! So get your act together! and I expect you to do better tomorrow night!!
