thank you for watching [ cheers and applause well, guys, let's get to the news everyone is talking about the supreme court after they made some pretty major decisions over the last few days and let me just sum it up for you. they basically said whether it's a gun or a baby, you're carrying something [ laughter ] that's right on friday, the supreme court voted to overturn roe v. wade. i don't have to tell you that plenty of people are furious with the supreme court right now. and in an attempt to tamp down the anger, the supreme court released this message. watch this >> we here at the supreme court recognize that millions of americans are angry over our recent actions but we really want to hear what you have to say. so, call us at 1-800 - [ mumbling ] or email us at - [ mumbling ] and you can always write to us at the address on the screen the united states supreme court. because your opinion matters [ cheers and applause >> jimmy: you just find the
address. in response to the ruling, president biden said the court is literally taking america back 150 years and if there's anyone who knows what things were like back then, it would be president biden. [ laughter and applause i saw that house speaker nancy pelosi responded to the court's decision by reading a poem [ light laughter ] even democrats were like, "look, if this poem doesn't start off with clarence thomas and end with nantucket, we don't want to hear it. [ laughter ] meanwhile, after the decision, clarence thomas went even further and brought up banning contraception. [ audience groans it's all part of his plan, "operation get my wife out of the news." [ laughter ] that's right a new poll conducted this weekend. a majority of americans said that they don't agree with the supreme court's ruling in fact, 59% of americans said that they disapprove of the ruling and that's not all 52% of americans said that it's a step backward for america.
while 48% said "circle back next week. i'm still mad about the january 6th hearings and how everyone just kind of decided the pandemic was over. [ laughter ] [ applause ] is it over 33% said they don't really see how politics affect them, then paid 100 bucks to fill their gas tank [ laughter ] and finally, 68% said, "i'm literally too angry to answer poll questions right now." [ cheers and applause so just hush switching gears, this weekend, president biden left for germany to meet with other world leaders at this year's g7 summit. and, as always, the leaders took a family photo together here they are. [ light laughter ] yeah looks like "the bachelorette: senior edition." [ laughter ] did you guys see this? over the weekend, rudy giuliani claimed that he got slapped by a supermarket employee and even went on to say, it felt like somebody shot him. [ laughter ] that sounds pretty scary this is real we have the surveillance footage. this is real take a look.
>> jimmy: there's rudy oh that was it. [ laughter ] that was it? he thinks that was a slap? >> lou: clearly rudy didn't see this year's oscars [ laughter ] [ applause ] it makes sense that he freaked out. it's been 20 years since rudy got a pat on the back. you know what i'm saying [ laughter ] some entertainment news. this weekend, the new movie "elvis" narrowly edged out "top gun: maverick" for number one at the box office. and apparently it's so popular that it already inspired this new promo. watch this >> "elvis" is officially the number one movie at the box office and if you loved being transported back to 1955, then you'll love "the supreme court. now playing in 29 states [ laughter and applause >> jimmy: this is a promo for
the movie. hey guys, i saw a new survey that said the perfect temperature for air conditioning during the summer is 64 degrees. that seems cold. 64 degrees is perfect if you're training rocky inside a meat locker [ laughter ] i think it's a perfect temperature if you want to see your dad's nipples poking through his t-shirt. >> steve: hey! [ laughter ] oh >> jimmy: hey guys, i heard about a family in idaho who came home to a roofless house after a roofing company got the wrong address. [ laughter ] the company was like, "uh, good news, you got more outdoor space. i like how the neighbor watched and was like, "what a coincidence, we're both having our roofs replaced.
