Why haven't you invited me before? Well... you know, you were a busy guy. Did you think when you were here in 2014 that this program would be 10 years old? -No. -Yeah. We appreciate...we appreciate honesty, you know? Now, you guys have actually been colleagues before, worked together. You did an episode of "Parks and Recreation." We talked about it back in 2000. -Are you kidding? I bragged about all that... for a long, long time. -That was fun. -That was before he was

president

. This was the best concert you've ever had. -And maybe the best concert I've ever had, period. -Yeah.

How was it, Amy, how was... how was the

as a scene partner? -Well, it was a fantastic time to go to DC because we met with the then Mr. Vice President... Mr. President, Vice President, President. -That's right. -I don't want to be wrong. -Joe, Joe. -I don't want to be wrong. Um, but we met people from both sides of the aisle.

And I was like, “Just act like, what is this lady doing here?” And you did it. -I have one-I want to talk-I want to look at the future, but one last look at the past.

In 2014, you had just called LaGuardia a third world airport and had to fly to LaGuardia to attend this show. And the only reason I bring it up is that LaGuardia, much to the chagrin of late-night comedians like me, is now a beautiful airport. It's a beautiful airport and really speaks to what infrastructure spending could achieve. Sometimes it takes a long time, but it is really worth it. Have you been to LaGuardia recently? -Yes, but it didn't take me long, yes. The last guy had a week of infrastructure every week. -Yes, he did it. -In fact, we did it.

How can you be the 13th leading country in the world in terms of infrastructure? -Not good. -Impossible. -Yeah. -Impossible. But that's not the only thing we're doing. We are changing many things. -You changed many things and I want to ask you about that. But there is something that I really liked: it simply speaks to the era we live in now. There's a Dark Brandon

conspiracy

meme

, and this is something you seem to have a lot of fun with. You've co-opted... you've co-opted Dark Brandon. This is a garden sign. And do you like playing with the Dark Brandon

meme

? -No, it bothers me a lot. -Well. -Now I want to... my favorite recently is that 18% of Americans, according to a recent poll, have believed that you and Taylor Swift are actually colluding.
And after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, you posted this on social media and you wrote... you wrote "Just the way we wrote it." Now, can you... I have you in my sights here... can you confirm or deny that there is an active

conspiracy

between you and Ms. Swift? -Where do you get this information from? It's classified. -Classified information. -That is classified information. -Won't you share it with us? But I will tell you that she did support me in 2020.-she did. -Maybe you're wondering... maybe you're wondering. Do you think it could happen again? -I told you, it's classified. -I'm going to...
I'm going to ask you another question because we mentioned "Parks and Rec," and "Parks and Rec" was a show that was about how the government could really help people, and it was a really optimistic show. Very fast though. Well, do you believe in any conspiracy

theories

? -Oh, yes, I have a conspiracy. I think the octopus... an octopus is an alien. -Well. -And the bottom of the seabed is actually the top of the Earth. -It goes. He's leaving. -Wait wait. Hey. -I told you to stop telling people that. -So if that's wrong, don't tell me. -I'm not, I'm not, I'm not. -Okay, so "Parks and Rec" was about optimism.
I think you are more optimistic about this country than I and many people. Why are you still optimistic about this nation despite everything that has happened in recent years? -Look, I say this to all world leaders, and I say it with all sincerity. Never underestimate the ability of the American people. There is nothing beyond our capacity. Nothing. Think about it. Every crisis we've ever been in, we've come out stronger than we went in. Everyone, and friends, it is thanks to you. Not because of your leaders, but because of you. Really and truly, the American people are incredible.
And we are the best. You know, I said it, I asked, Xi Jinping asked me when I was with him in the Tibetan mountains, and he said, "Can you define America for me?" I said, "Yes. One word, possibilities." The United States believes that anything is possible. And by the way, people step forward, people here step forward and look at what's happening. Now we have the best economy in the world. We have a long way to go, but now it is the best in the world. And we are going to improve it. -Well, I have a lot more to ask you about what comes next.
Guys, that's President Joe Biden. That's Amy Poehler. We'll be right back with more information from President Biden.
