-You participated in a virtual graduation
that had, among other participants,
former President Obama and Lebron James.
How did that come to pass for you?
-I just got an e-mail, and they were like,
"Hey, Lebron and Obama are doing this graduation event.
Do you want to do it?" and I was like,
"Let me thinking about it."
I was like, "Yeah, of course. Of course."
But, you know, it's kind of sad, because, like,
if it's a real-life thing, you get to meet Lebron and Obama.
But, virtually, you know, I just sent in --
I just recorded a bunch of stuff,
and I sent in a ton of jokes, and Obama took them up.
I have to assume it was directly Obama.
Or Lebron -- One of their decisions.
-Right, that they're both real hands-on
as far as editing down the comedy, you think?
-I really -- [ Laughs ]
Yeah. Yeah. They really were like,
"Hey, we really are looking for something much more sincere
than you riffing about 'Animal Crossing,'
a game that you don't play."
-I was lucky enough to be at "SNL" when Lebron hosted.
And I've interacted with President Obama
a couple of times.
Frustratingly funny people.
So, I have not met Lebron, but I did meet Obama once,
and he was like -- he said something,
and he was, like, really funny.
And I was like, "Oh, you have this, too?
The only thing I have, you also have?
It's like your 15th best thing."
It's really, really frustrating.
And then he said something funny,
and I laughed, and he's like, "I'm a funny guy.
No, really, I am a funny guy," and even that was charming.
You worked on him
with the White House Press correspondence thing.
-We shared a bill.
-Right, that was the one where he made fun of Trump's wines.
-Yeah, we both -- We both told a few jokes about him.
We got in the last word.
A lot of people say that was the last word on Donald Trump.
-Yeah, a lot of people say you guys really buried him.
He'll never come back from that.
So, do you feel partially Responsible for --
-I feel -- I feel, uh --
I don't want to go inside the mind of the guy
who decided to run for president, if that was why.
But certainly if that was why,
I would feel partially responsible.
-Oh, wow. That was a very diplomatic answer.
-Yeah. But I -- you know, I think if you wave it to,
it feels like he would much rather show up Barack Obama
than show up me. -Right.
I don't think him winning the presidency
was a way to spite you.
-It might have been to spite Obama.
-Yes. Still, I will say
that I was more like present at the crime scene.
I may be, like, you know -- -Right.
-Like, for aiding and abetting
more than the actual crime itself.
-Right. If he had set his mind
to becoming a great talk-show host,
then that would be your -- -Right. Yeah.
And that might very well be his next chapter.
-God, I hope so.
-It wouldn't be bad. -Next year.
-I would look forward to that, too.
