  1. I'm now wanting to hear Peter Serafinowicz read those as "Sassy Trump" 😉

    (That said, I'm not sure what impressed me more: that I could spell "Serafinowicz" from memory or that the Chrome spell-checker recognised it as valid 😉

  2. cheesy as it was, i fell in love with sabrina the teenage witch. but i was kinda primed by clarissa explains it all. i'm 33, 34 end of next month, so sue me for being a 90s kid. still enjoyed the hell out of sabrina cheese and all. but who doesn't like cheese, the person who says "me" is a liar, they just can't eat it because they are lactose intolerant, intolerant pigs!

  3. Too bad Trump didn't do those jokes. It would've been fun the next day when Fox explained to him what they meant.

  4. STOP EDITING OUT THE INTRODUCTIONS!!!!!!
    STOP EDITING OUT THE INTRODUCTIONS!!!!!!

  5. What a fantastic woman!!
    I m a stephen king fan.
    Other:
    What comes to mind when hearing her "trump" jokes.
    They re just too intelligent for trump.
    Which makes them not credible.
    So, Nell, to answer your question: no you couldnt, getting inside a persons head is one thing, but lowering your iq by half is just impossible.
    X-love ya

  6. “…I got in his head, it was quite roomy…”
    Zing! Never heard of her but from this interview alone, she’s hilarious. 🤣🤣

  7. Nell is great! She is also gracious and especially apt at getting her writing out there. Directly following a discussion with Stephen about men taking her work, he read her work, instead of "Allowing" her to read it! She got it out there and he never noticed that it took letting HIM read it to get the job done. No wonder she has been so successful! Someday women writers can be "Only" talented in writing, thanks to women like Nell forging the way!

  8. Nell Scovell is an underestimated genius in disguise. Total nerd in a dress… with insights that may flabbergast even Darth Vader. And she's an 80-ies lady… what more to know… the fact Stephan invited her and she mentioning the red light burning, says it all…

    I was the 88677 viewer of this video…

    88 = the keys on a piano keyboard, I was born on Harmony street 77… my father's and Mother's home land-line phone number was 34 8 77 and my current (randomly selected landline IS) 77 33 92…….. odds are real. 😉

  9. sometimes I read my comments in Trump's voice and then I delete them because I sound stupid (RACCOONS!)

  10. As a male, I truly feel that females should be just as equal as any males out there. When I hear how it's a lot more difficult for women to get into certain fields than men, or men make more than women on the average for the same job, I cringe, thinking, "how could a system like that be tolerated?" Why are women viewed as less valuable than men? By the way, I would be saying this even if it was the other way around. I'm for EQUAL rights

  11. How rich is that doggie in the limo~
    The one with the gold-dusted fur~
    How rich is that doggie in the limo~
    He owns his own Dog Whisperer~

  12. I dont get the first joke whats funny about it. Like why is it funny that in trumps defense he can't say stormy is like his sons, I don't get what is funny about stormy reminding him of his daughter and not his sons. Is it because shes pretty and so is ivanka ? If so how is that funny? If not what is the funny part of the joke???
