When the bars close down, brandy walks in a scythe Such a by my life, my love in my mouth You'll find out running Why you a leading man, honey? Yeah, Sometimes I'm right e get wrong My own sign in my song Thank you from her and then makes no difference. But e I'm every same for me then. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Amy Schumer, Robert Lee and Joe Biden Thistle Dream. Wow. Hello, North Carolina. Happy Halloween E. No, I may not look like I'm dressed up, but I swear to you, this is the first time I've worn a bra in seven months. I'm in costume. So my name is Amy Schumer. You may know me from my movie train wreck, which Joe Biden refuses to watch. Even though I keep telling him no trains were harmed during the making of the movie. That guy loves trains. I want to thank you all for taking the time out of your weekend to support this campaign. I see you. I appreciate you and I can see in your eyes that we're all feeling the same way. We are ready. We are ready for the sun to come out again. This'll Is it this'll is it? This is the moment we've all been waiting for. It really is. We are three days away from an election that will shape the world for decades to come. And most importantly to me, we are one day away from not having to hear the term October surprise anymore. Everyone loves that Dad joke, right? Anything that happens must be in October. Surprise! Shut up. A couple of years ago, I got my own October surprise and I took a pregnancy test. But this isn't about me. We're three days away from the election and that's the important part. What are you going to do with your time? I'll tell you what I'm going to do with my time. I'm going to use every hour I have left to make sure that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris become the next president and vice president of the United States of America. That's right. On early voting in North Carolina ends Thio Day and I It's Halloween and you know, every day is Halloween for Donald Trump just based on bronzer alone. Now, if you're a guy or a woman who doesn't wear a lot of makeup, that's just a joke about how much makeup Trump wears. Because it's a lot. It's a it's abnormal. It's a thick orange, almost mud mask. I want to say with like a pumpkin spice like powder on top. I'm not insulting him. His face always makes me think of the fallen. Crave a lot. Four million North Carolinians have already cast their ballots, so if you haven't I don't know what you're doing here. Get out of here. Don't vote. A soon as Dr Biden finishes her speech, just promise me you'll head straight for the polls for no other reason, then, to save our democracy. That's the only reason it's the last day of early voting, so don't wait. And if you've already voted, make sure your friends and family have a plan to vote to. I texted my girls from home. You know, the girls I grew up with and I asked them, I've been I've been harassing them for three months. What's your voting plan? Anybody vote? I text him two nights ago, I said. Has everybody voted. Yet one of them said, Oh, I'm filling it out and I'm gonna put it in the mail right now I said No, it is too late for that. You have to go. She's eight months pregnant. I said, They'll let you to the front of the line. I'm so glad I stayed on them. We have to be texting people. It's okay to be a little annoying when Children are being separated from their parents of the border of our country. On here is the exciting thing. This is what's exciting. All of us have the power to save our democracy. That sounds cliche, right? Because it's true. That's how our country works. When we vote, we win. When we don't vote, we lose. You don't believe me. Here's the Halloween horror story for you. It takes place. In 2016 more than 800,000 registered Democrats in North Carolina did not vote, and Donald Trump won this state by fewer than 200,000 votes. That is a scary story, I know. Have you also heard the story about the megalomaniac president who owed millions of dollars to foreign governments all over the world? who encouraged hate crimes and the violation of women. Ah, president who knowingly spread a lethal virus to his friends and family. That's too scary, right? Putting our frontline workers through the most traumatic time of their lives and putting them in unnecessary danger. It's too scary to imagine it's really and we can't afford to have anyone in our lives or our phones sit this election out. It's too important because everything we care about the very fiber of our being czar decency and our health and the health of our loved ones is on the line and we can make the difference. We have the power to protect a woman's right to make her own decisions about her body. Thio make it easier to get health care and harder to shoot up a school filled with our Children on. Now I want to share something with you that I don't I don't know if you know this Dr Biden. I don't think Joe knows this either, but I know it. I happened to be I was lucky enough to be at the White House when Obama was giving one of his final speeches on ending gun violence. I was lucky enough to be there because of my work with every town for gun safety. And that's where I saw this interaction. Jimmy Green and his wife elbow were there. Jimmy Greene is a horn player. He's a jazz saxophonist, and their daughter Anna was shot and killed at Sandy Hook eight years old, and Jimmy Greene is standing in line at the White House and Joe Biden approaches him, and I could see that they had met many times, and I found out that Joe had been a really source of comfort to that family. He gave them his cell phone number, and they said he understands child loss. He understands grief, and he said, If you need to, you go home He said, they're gonna wanna cart you around about this issue. But when you need to go home, you go home. And he comforted that family and he stayed connected to them. And that's when I knew that the kind of person that Joe Biden waas way have way do have the power to keep our Children safe and make sure every one of them has a good education, no matter their zip code, and we have the power to make sure that every American can live a life with dignity, no matter what they look like, where they're from or whom they love. And yes, by the way we can use this power. How do we use it By electing Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Roy Cooper, Cal Cunningham and all of the Democrats down the ballot? That's right. If you're ever worried about what people are gonna think about you for sharing your true feelings about humanity, you shake that off. Don't let anyone stop you from doing what you know in your heart is right. Yes, way will work together because we're gonna win this thing on its because of you. Yeah, One of the reasons I'm so excited I'm so fired up I'm so proud is because when we send Joe Biden to the White House, we will also be sending Dr Jill Biden to the White House. I have to say she's the coolest. She's the coolest teacher. She's so much fun. I've had the pleasure of spending time with her. She's brilliant and she's a patriot. She spent her life doing nothing but good for as many people as possible from helping military families to fighting against breast cancer. To championing the importance of education and community colleges, Dr. Jill Biden has never stopped working to build a better America for all of us. And did you see the event this year where Joe was speaking and people came up to attack him? Did anyone see that? Did you see what, Dr. Joking. All of a sudden she became like a Golden Gloves boxer. She was bobbing and weaving and knocking people out of the way to protect her man and our future president. And I was like, I love this woman e. On In her speech in her speech at the Democratic convention this summer, Dr Biden called on Americans to show up for each other in this time of crisis, with love, with kindness and with an unwavering faith in our power to make a difference in this world. And that's what we're going to do over the next three days. That's not too much to ask, right? We got this right. I know. We dio Thank you. Thank you so much. Dr Biden. Welcome to North Carolina. If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes. If you don't like our president, but wait three days in North Carolina will help the licked your husband work. My family runs deep because Joe Biden reminds me of the best of this nation, and so does Jill. In my own life, I'm blessed by an incredible mother and my wife. Stephanie and I are working to receive our foster care license to possibly foster and adopt Children in our area. Both my mom and my wife work a 40 hour a week jobs, and we all know that that means more than 40 hours a week, both all of these women up on stage. You know what it's like to be worried about finances? Is packing lunches about what's on the schedule for the work next day as well A soccer practices, I reckon. Many of us feel that same way to as I look at all the women in this crowd. I see that many of you know how to mother. Jill took up the task of raising step Children and integrating into a family that had been started before she arrived. She thrived, added to it and continues to be a great mother to her kids and a grandmother to her grandchildren. Not only is Jill an incredible mother, but Dr Biden is an educator and a committed academic who will be helping us. He'll not only are weary souls, but the policy system broken by the previous for years. Friends, I want to be honest with you. We need not only a command. They're in. Chief. We need a first lady who can offer those mother like healing qualities to our nation. This'll Week. What we do will define a generation. My generation we're seeking seeing record voting turnout, and we're seeing energy and enthusiasm and excitement of redeeming the soul of this nation. But you, all in your cars know that when you're driving, you can't take your foot off the pedal. You have to keep the momentum up. You have to tell your friends and family to vote. You have to get to the polls. During the American Civil War, my four greats uncle fought to divide this country as the commander of the Army of Northern Virginia, also known as the Confederate States of America's army. I know that for me I must recognize the pain caused by my family in that war that said. I also recognize that the current president of the United States refuses to call off white supremacists and Racists. It's sad ending that we have a president like that. Honestly, he seems more like Jefferson Davis rather than Abraham Lincoln. Way have a president who would rather divide and care more about his tweets than the black bodies that are dying in our streets Way have a president who cares more for his base rather than the very nation he swore to protect. The moment is now We must be worthy of this our please. If you haven't already, make a plan to vote and check on your relatives and your friends to make sure they have plans to vote as well. Remember what I said that the senator when Senator Harris was here. If you love someone, tell them to vote. If you love someone, get to the polls. Now I'm a preacher who refuses to end without hope. So we're not gonna end with Donald Trump and electing him out of office. We have a choice between a racist demagogue and a future that it is bleak, or a man who has given his life to public service. Joe Biden shows compassion at every turn. Our current president does not. I have high hopes that our nation, the United States of America, that has seen so much in our history and this great state the old North State will make the right choice. The choice is up to us in our hour. Is it a hand, friends? It is my task now to introduce to you the next first lady of the United States, Dr Jill Biden. Thanks, Dad. Hello. Hello, North Carolina. Thank you, Probably. Really. And I know that this election means so much to you and your family and to your congregation. And you've been speaking out and fighting for racial equality here in North Carolina and with all of your responsibilities, it means so much that you took the time to be with us today. So thank you, Amy. You are such an amazingly funny and talented comedienne and actress. But what I love about you most is how fearless you have been speaking up for the causes that matter, Teoh a platform is a blessing as well as a responsibility. So can we thank Amy again? E Thank Congressman Larkin. Yeah. Egleston representative shows beastly center Mohammed and Congresswoman Alma Adams Alma Where way So Hello, Charlotte and Happy Halloween thing started this campaign. I never imagined that I would be speaking to a car rally and yet way can't tell you how glad I am to be here with all of you and see and hear so much excitement for Joe. Why I love the Joe and Jill on a stick. It's really funny eso. As you might know, I teach writing in English at a community college and over the course of this campaign, you know, I've thought a lot about this, the words we use and the stories that we tell that really shape our world. And Donald Trump has always known the power of words, and he has spent a lifetime attempting to she and lie his way into success and prestige and most of all, profit. You know, he tries to alter reality simply by renaming it, denigrating anyone who stands up to him trying to just wish this pandemic away. He says that this virus has turned a corner. Instead, he has turned his back on us. A. Donald Trump wants to tell you a story about this country. That truth doesn't matter, that decency doesn't matter that our voices do not matter. He wants us to believe that that's who we are. Hateful and divided and angry. But he's wrong. Isn't in Charlotte. Democrats and Republicans, factory workers and nurses, military parents and educators for every corner of this country they want, we want. We all want the same things to work hard and make a good life for our families. But we can't do that right now. We can't do that because people are losing their jobs and their loved ones, because they're staying at home, are working on the front lines without protection. We're all worried about paying our bills and whether our Children will be safe when they go to school. Just like a, he said. Way are divided. We're just trying to survive the chaos of Donald Trump's America. But while this president tries Thio talkin his way out of responsibility, my husband, Joe Biden, is a man of his word. Over the years of our marriage, a lot has changed, but what has never changed is the character of the man I married. He's the man who came home every night from Washington, D. C. To talk our kids into bed while I studied for my doctorate. The man who gives his cell number two grieving parents, as the reverend said, because he needs them to know that even though their hearts are shattered, they aren't alone. The man who went back to work four days after our son died because he knew that the American people needed their vice president, Joe Joe, has been knocked down, but he always gets back up. His strength of will is unstoppable. His faith is unshakable because it's not in politicians or political parties or even himself. It's in the providence of God. It's in the potential of our country. It's faith is in you. It's in us. E. Promise you. North Carolina Joe Biden will be a president for all Americans on. He has a plan to end this pandemic to rebuild, to re imagine a future that's better than ever. So right now I wanna take you into the future into Joe Biden's America. So picture it, you wake up and it's a beautiful morning like it is right here Today. You're sipping your coffee and you pick up the morning paper, and the headline isn't about some late night tweet. Storm it instead. Instead, it's a story about the Children, American Children who will benefit from universal pre kindergarten on. Then you turn on the television, and the anchors aren't talking anymore about this spikes in the covert virus. Instead, they're talking about the millions of good paying jobs that we're creating and reporting how Joe is going to make prescription drugs available and affordable away. And when they cut to the president of the United States, you don't turn the channel.
