Transcript from Joe talking to reporters:
"I love you all. You're great.
Tomorrow we'll talk a little bit.
Because I wanted to say hello to all these great students who I love.
You guys are great, all of you. When I say guys, you know what I mean – you know I mean girls, too.
Hey look, get a good night's sleep, study, all right? We still got things to do. All right. I'm out of it, maybe, now. That phone call put me out of it, but we'll go from here. Good luck everybody
Hey, and one thing: Thanks and pray a little bit for those victims."
