♪ ♪ [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: THANKS FOR COMING ALL THE WAY OUT HERE.>>THANK YOU.>>Jimmy: WHY ARE YOU RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? I MEAN, THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. IS IT ONE OF THOSE THINGS WHERE YOU LOOK AT DONALD TRUMP AND YOU GO, I COULD CERTAINLY DO THAT? DID HE INSPIRE YOU IN A WAY?>>OF COURSE HE DID. FIRST OF ALL, IT’S GOOD TO SIT DOWN WITH SOMEONE WHO’S NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.>>Jimmy: GIVE ME SOME TIME.>>OH, I SEE.>>Jimmy: NO, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.>>FIRST OF ALL, WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT, ONE, I’M A WOMAN. THERE’S NOT THAT MANY OF US.>>Jimmy: I WAS GOING TO MENTION THAT.>>AND I SAY MAY THE BEST WOMAN WIN. SECONDLY, I AM FROM THE MIDWEST. AND, AS YOU KNOW IN 2016 WE HAD SOME TROUBLE WINNING THE MIDWEST, AND I HAVE WON ALL THESE RURAL COUNTIES. EVERY CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT THAT’S RED IN MY DISTRICT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I AM SOMEONE WHO GETS THINGS DONE. AND LAST TIME I CHECKED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THAT. AND FINALLY, I AM THE ONLY CANDIDATE OF ALL OF THEM THAT ANNOUNCED MY CANDIDACY IN A GIGANTIC SNOW GLOBE AND HAD EIGHT INCHES OF SNOW ON MY HEAD.>>Jimmy: YOU DID DO THAT. >>SHOWING THAT I HAVE THE GRIT TO BEAT THIS GUY.>>Jimmy: OR JUST A BAD TRAVEL AGENT. SO YOU, IT WAS YOUR BIRTHDAY THIS WEEKEND, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.>>THANK YOU.>>Jimmy: YOU SPENT IT AT A RALLY.>>WITH MY HUSBAND. IT WAS VERY ROMANTIC. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE FROM IOWA AND SOME COWS. THAT WAS IT. IT WAS VERY GOOD.>>Jimmy: DID YOU HAVE A PARTY OF ANY KIND WHILE YOU WERE IN IOWA?>>I DID. I HAD A BIG BIRTHDAY CAKE MANY TIMES AND HE GAVE ME A REALLY COOL GIFT FOR DRIVING AROUND IOWA, AUTO BINGO.>>Jimmy: BINGO YOU PLAY IN THE CAR?>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PLAY?>>FOUR.>>Jimmy: SO YOU’RE GUARANTEED TO WIN A LOT.>>OF COURSE, THAT WAS MY POINT.>>Jimmy: NOW YOU TOLD A STORY AT ONE OF THESE RALLIES THIS WEEKEND THAT I FOUND SO INTERESTING ABOUT THE LATE SENATOR JOHN McCAIN. YOU AND, CORRECT ME IF I HAVE ANY OF THE DETAILS WRONG, BUT IT WAS YOU, SENATOR SANDERS, AT TRUMP’S INAUGURATION AND HE BEGAN RECITING THE NAMES OF DICTATORS DURING TRUMP’S SPEECH, IS THAT CORRECT?>>HE WAS MENTIONING PART OF THE SPEECH AND MENTIONING DICTATOR SPEECHES.>>Jimmy: WAS HE DOING IT TO MAKE YOU GUYS LAUGH?>>NO.>>Jimmy: HE WAS NOT.>>HE WAS DOING IT BECAUSE OF HIS CONCERN ABOUT WHAT THIS MEANT WITH THIS PRESIDENT.>>Jimmy: WAS HITLER IN THERE?>>NO.>>Jimmy: WELL, TRUMP’S GOT TO BE FLATTERED ABOUT THAT. WHAT ABOUT STALIN.>>NO, HE WAS NOT. I THINK THE POINT OF THE STORY WAS THAT JOHN McCAIN WAS A STUDENT OF HISTORY. AND SO HE KNEW WHAT WAS COMING. HE KNEW THESE CRIES FOR ISOLATIONISM, WHAT THAT MEANT IF WE DON’T STAND WITH OUR ALLIES, WHAT THAT MEANT FOR AMERICA’S STANDING IN THE WORLD. AND THAT’S WHAT HE WAS DOING. HE SAID THINGS SIMILAR TO THIS PUBLICLY AS WELL.>>Jimmy: WHY DON’T, AND I KNOW THERE ARE A COUPLE WHO DO, BUT WHY DON’T MANY OF HIS REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES AGREE WITH THAT SENTIMENT? ARE THEY SCARED BECAUSE TRUMP IS SO POPULAR TO STAND UP TO HIM?>>I THINK THEY DO GET SCARED. I THINK THEY’RE SCARED OF GETTING A PRIMARY AGAINST SOMEONE WHO IS MORE RIGHT WING, MORE EXTREME, AND IT’S JUST ANOTHER REASON WHY I WANT TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT. I THINK WE NEED SOMEONE THAT’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH THEM, TO STAND UP TO THIS, TO FIND COMMON GROUND WHERE WE CAN, TO GET THINGS DONE. RESPONDING TO CLIMATE CHANGE. THE GUY’S MOVED US BACKWARDS. BRINGING DOWN THE COST OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. WASHINGTON HAS DONE NOTHING. AND HE MADE SO MANY PROMISES SO THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY WHEN HE RAN FOR ELECTION, AND HE HASN’T COME THROUGH.>>Jimmy: SOME OF THE PROMISES THAT HE MADE WE HOPE HE DOESN’T COME THROUGH ON. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: I THINK WE SHOULD MAYBE NOT PUSH THAT ONE. YOU WERE A PROSECUTING ATTORNEY IN MINNESOTA AND DECIDED TO RUN FOR, IN, FOR POLITICAL OFFICE PAUSE BECAUSE YOUR DAUGHTER HAD HEALTH ISSUES.>>RIGHT. I ACTUALLY HADN’T HELD ANY OFFICE BEFORE. AND WHEN SHE WAS BORN, SIMILAR TO THE STORY OF YOUR SON, WE THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS FINE, AND AN ALL OF A SUDDEN A FEW HOURS LATER THE NURSE COMES RUNNING IN AND SAYS SHE CAN’T SWALLOW, SHE CAN’T SWALLOW. WE GOT UP. WE HAD ALL THIS LITTLE BABY, X RAY AFTER X RAY AFTER X RAY. THEY THOUGHT SHE HAD A TUMOR. SHE WAS IN INTENSIVE CARE. AND IT TOOK ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF BEFORE SHE STARTED EATING ON HER OWN WITHOUT BEING FED THROUGH A TUBE. AND THAT REALLY TAUGHT ME A FEW THINGS, AS IT DID YOU, ONE, TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE GOT THAT KIND OF HEALTH CARE LIKE WE GOT. TWO, UNDERSTAND WHAT PEOPLE WITH KIDS WITH DISABILITIES GO THROUGH, EVEN THOUGH THAT DIDN’T TURN OUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER, BUT IT’S MADE ME A LIFETIME ADVOCATE FOR THAT. AND BACK THEN I WAS KICKED OUT OF THE HOSPITAL IN 24 HOURS EVEN THOUGH I’D BEEN UP ALL NIGHT. WE DIDN’T KNOW IF SHE WAS GOING TO SURVIVE. THAT WAS THE RULE BACK THEN. THEN I WENT TO THE LEGISLATURE, NEVER HOLDING OFFICE, WORKED WITH PEOPLE AND GOT ONE OF THE FIRST LAWS IN THE NATION PASSED, GUARANTEED MOMS OF A NEW BABY A 48 HOUR HOSPITAL STAY. THE INSURANCE LOBBYISTS WERE TRYING TO DELAY IT SO IT WOULD TAKE EFFECT LATER.>>Jimmy: OH.>>AND THEY DIDN’T WANT TO TELL ANYONE. SO I BROUGHT SIX PREGNANT FRIENDS TO THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE. THEY OUTNUMBERED THEM TWO TO ONE. AND WHEN THE LEGISLATE YOU ARES SAID WHEN SHOULD THIS TAKE EFFECT? THEY ALL RAISED THEIR HAND AND SAID NOW. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.>>Jimmy: NOW IT’S BECOME A FEDERAL.>>YEAH. NOW IT’S A FEDERAL LAW.>>Jimmy: YOU PUT AN INITIATIVE FORWARD TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO HAVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND TO FIGHT ADDICTION, SUBSTANCE ADDICTION. AND IT’S INSPIRED, IN A WAY, BY YOUR FATHER.>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: WHO WAS A LOCAL PERSONALITY IN YOUR TOWN.>>YES, MY DAD HAD A NUMBER OF DWIs, STRUGGLED WITH ALCOHOLISM. WHEN HE GOT TO HIS THIRD, RIGHT BEFORE I WAS GOING TO GET MARRIED HE HAD TO FACE JAIL OR TREATMENT. AND HE PICKED TREATMENT. AND IN HIS WORDS HE WAS PURSUED BY GRACE. AND I TRULY BELIEVE EVERYONE IN AMERICA, WHETHER THEY ARE DEALING WITH MENTAL HEALTH OR ADDICTION TO OPIOIDS OR ALCOHOL OR METH, THEY HAVE THAT SAME RIGHT. AND I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY PEOPLE COME UP TO ME AND SAY I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO GO FOR HELP. THERE AREN’T ENOUGH BEDS IN MY STATE FOR MY SON WHO HAS A MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM. WE ARE, MY KIDS IN THE COURT SYSTEM NOW, AND THEY JUST NEED A DRUG COURT SO THEY CAN HELP THEM. SO I JUST BELIEVE WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THIS IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY.>>Jimmy: OF COURSE.>>ALL WE HEAR IS TALK. THERE’S ACTUALLY A WAY TO PAY FOR IT. PART OF IT IS HOLDING THOSE RESPONSIBLE WHO GOT PEOPLE ADDICTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. THAT’S PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES. WE CAN GET THIS DONE.>>Jimmy: WILL THIS MENTAL HEALTH ASSISTANCE BE AVAILABLE TO OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF AS WELL? DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT IS CRAZY?>>I THINK THAT THE PRESIDENT IS NOT DOING HIS JOB FOR THIS COUNTRY. I THINK THAT HE IS INCONSISTENT. HE’S GOVERNING BY CHAOS. HE IS SOMEONE THAT DIVIDES PEOPLE EVERY SINGLE MORNING. HE SENDS OUT A TWEET, THAT, TO ME, AS A LEADER, YOU BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. SURE, THEY HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS THAN YOU DO. BUT YOUR JOB IS TO BRING THEM TOGETHER. INSTEAD, HE LIKES TO CREATE THESE WEDGES TO KEEP HIS BASE HAPPY, GOING AFTER IMMIGRANTS, GOING AFTER PEOPLE OF COLOR, GOING AFTER JOHN McCAIN, GOING AFTER, YOU KNOW, SENDING OUT A DOCTORED VIDEO OF NANCY PELOSI. THESE ARE NOT THINGS THAT ARE GOOD, STRONG LEADER DOES.>>Jimmy: SO YEAH, HE’S CRAZY. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>Jimmy: ALL RIGHT, SO I WANT TO OFFER YOU A LITTLE BIT OF CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.>>OH, YEAH, PLEASE. NO ONE’S WATCHING. SO JUST TELL ME. YEAH.>>Jimmy: THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS RACE. AND YOU HAVE TO SET YOURSELF APART. I KNOW YOUR SLOGAN IS AMY FOR AMERICA. AND I MEAN, IT’S FINE FOR STUDENT COUNCIL. BUT FOR PRESIDENCY, YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING REALLY GOOD, ALL RIGHT?>>YOU GOT SOMETHING FOR ME?>>Jimmy: WE’LL SEE WHAT YOU THINK.>>OKAY.>>Jimmy: SO THIS ONE, A PLAY ON YOUR LAST NAME. KLO WITH THE FLOW.>>OKAY. THAT IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS MY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CAMPAIGN, WHICH WAS ALL THE WAY WITH AMY K.>>Jimmy: EVEN THAT’S BETTER THAN AMY FOR AMERICA. IT DOES HAVE A SEXUAL CONNOTATION, YES. HERE’S A RED HAT. WHEN THEY GO KLO, WE GO BUCHAR.>>THOSE ARE REALLY HELPFUL.>>Jimmy: HERE WE GO. IT’S KLOBERING TIME.>>THESE ARE SO GREAT. WE DON’T HAVE QUITE AS MUCH MUCH AS SOME OF THE OTHER CANDIDATES, AND YOU’VE REALLY PROVIDED ME WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF CONSULTANT HELP RIGHT HERE.
