Las Vegas, yes. But what is the third richest casino in the world? That one I don’t even know about? I mean, I do know that I’m in New Orleans, but it’s not an “O.” And what is the worst casino in the world? I don’t know.

But there’s a third reason. I think America is the richest country in the world. And that’s because in the last two years, we’ve given money away to the people who can afford it.
