tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC March 27, 2015 11:35pm-12:38am PDT
>> i'm ama daetz. thank you for joining us. up next on jimmy kimmle, president obama. >> have a great weekend. good night. >> dicky: from hollywood it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, president barack obama. and sean penn. with cleto and the cletones. and now, take it easy, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪
>> jimmy: hi, i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. the perfect night to join us. we have quite a show for you tonight. the leader of the free world is on the show tonight. sean penn is here to promote his movie "the gunman." president obama is here to promote a project he's been working on called the united states. we never had a sitting president on the show. we had two former presidents. president clinton and -- was morgan freeman president? okay, we had one. so this is two now. if you told me when i was like 14 years old that one day i would interview the president on tv, i -- i would have said, that's great, will i ever get to see boobs? very single-minded. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] thank you.
there has been some controversy surrounding obama's appearance on the show tonight. monday we announced the president would be here. this morning i got a letter from 47 republicans telling me not to sign any deals with him. i guess that peace agreement with matt damon is off. the republicans who signed that letter sent to iran, getting a lot of criticism including from members of their own party. what are they supposed to do? the letter clearly said, copy this letter and send it to nine enemy governments or it will bring your country bad luck, you have no choice, don't mess with st. jude. it's fitting the president is here on thursday, which of course is "scandal" night here on abc. [ cheers and applause ] i was on "scandal" tonight, interviewing the new vice president. i played myself. i really nailed it. i followed myself around for months. i wanted to learn everything about what makes me tick. and i did. i always wonder what it must be like when the president and the first lady watch "scandal" together.
like there's a scene where fitz cheats on his wife. does the president have to look at michelle and go, "boo! i don't like that at all." security's been very tight all day. you guys who are here know that. anything that could be considered to be a weapon had to be left in plain sight for the secret service to examine. which since this is l.a. included gluten. we have pizza all over the place. it was serious, though. a bomb-sniffing dog came into my office today, for real, a belgian shepherd named pistol, great dog. a very happy dog, he obviously has no idea what happens if he ever finds what he's looking for. but then, do any of us, really? even guillermo had to step up his security game today, look at guillermo. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you look tough, you look serious. is everything secure? >> guillermo: code four! >> jimmy: code four.
what about the perimeter? is the perimeter secure? >> guillermo: everything is code four. >> jimmy: okay. he's not wearing those sunglasses because he's with secret service, he's wearing them because he's hung over today. he's with the secret servesa. part of the reason why president obama is here in town tonight is to do fund-raising. you know, he's very serious about helping sasha and malia sell all their girl scout cookies. the cost of attendance at the dnc fund-raiser obama is going to later is $33,400 per couple for dinner. that's with limited bread sticks. you know, the president really wants to raise money, he should throw on a superhero costume and take pictures with people in front of the chinese theater across the street. that's where the money is. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: from time to time, maybe once a week, we go onto hollywood boulevard to ask people passing by for their opinions on events that did not take place. and since the president is here,
we decided to focus specifically on him. we sent a camera crew out on the street to ask pedestrians who claim to be up on current events about a bunch of obama-related news we made up. this is a special presidential edition of "liewitness news." >> tell us your name and where you're from, sir. >> joe rose from cincinnati, ohio. >> i'm sure you're aware, president obama upset with joe biden. should he have removed biden from office after he made the now-legendary "your mama" joke to vladimir putin? >> i don't feel he should. >> did you think it was funny? >> i thought it was. >> where were you when you heard him make that joke? >> i believe i was at my house. i thought it was hilarious. >> do you remember the joke? your mama's so fat -- >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> she has to go through a revolving door on two trips. >> yeah, yeah. nothing wrong with a little comedy.
>> everyone's talking about it. what are your thoughts on president barack obama's new earrings? >> i think they're pretty cool. he's going to look hip. hopefully he's not doing it for the young voters, he's doing it for himself. >> where did you see it? >> on tv. >> what is your take on president obama's decision to name dennis rodman ambassador to north korea? >> i don't think he has the experience for that position. i think the current ambassador's doing a great job. we have really excellent relations with north korea right now. >> were you surprised when you heard him announce that? >> i can't say i was surprised. i guess a little disappointed. >> where were you? >> i was making some soup. >> what kind of soup? >> it was clam chowder. >> did you think it was irresponsible for obama to not have his newborn son marcus circumcised? >> no, not at all. that's a personal choice on behalf of parents. it's something that -- it's between you and your
significant other and that's it. that's how i feel. >> isn't marcus sort of our child, since he's the president's child? >> no. i don't believe that. he may be a public figure, but it's not our child. >> you saw a picture of him? >> yeah. >> adorable, isn't he? >> totally. >> what was your reaction when you heard president obama was going to be having a sleepover with kim jong-un? >> oh, wow. i remember that it was pretty funny. i was just really surprised. and i saw some pictures earlier so i thought that was interesting. >> what were the pictures like? >> they were like in bed together. [ laughter ] looked like they were having a lot of fun. >> they watched a movie on netflix, right? >> yeah, i think "titanic," i'm not sure. >> congratulations, president obama, on your new son marcus, enjoy the time with him. you don't have to circumcise him if you don't want to. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i didn't even get the obamas a baby gift.
by the way, traffic here in l.a. is all jammed up today and everyone in town is mad at me because normally here in l.a. we zip through traffic without any problem at all. whenever a president travels they have street closers, they have to do that for security. of course it slows things down. it also makes the guy in your office who rides his bike to work even more annoying than he usually is. that's just locally. online the people who already don't like the president are criticizing him for coming here. president bush would get the same thing when he did tv shows, it's the nature of the job. especially now that we have twitter. i think it's important to remember that presidents are people too. and from time to time, we give celebrities a chance to read some of the mean things people tweet about them. and tonight we extended that same courtesy to our commander in chief. [ cheers and applause ] it's time now for an all-president obama edition of "mean tweets." ♪
>> obama's hair is looking grayer these days. can't imagine why since he doesn't seem to be one bit worried about all that's going on. is there any way we could fly obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there? well, rw surfer girl, i think that's a great idea. a 30-pack of coors light is $23 at sun stop. thanks, obama. how do you make obama's eyes light up? shine a flashlight in his ears. that's pretty good. somebody send obama some tips how to be a good president. ha ha. like i bet that would help. lol. the lol's redundant when you have the ha ha.
i'm all right with the president wearing jeans. i'm not all right with the president wearing those jeans. >> can i just say something? those are mean, i don't think there's anything wrong with the jeans you wear. >> jimmy, i think you've got a point. have you been working out? ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we have a great show for you tonight. sean penn is here. we'll be right back with the president of the united states!

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: if they legalize marijuana in washington, d.c. you can be higher than me. [ laughter ] how are you? thank you for coming. >> i feel good. >> jimmy: you did a great job with "mean tweets" by the way. [ cheers and applause ] >> i have to say, though -- those weren't that mean. i mean, i've got to tell you, you should see what the senate says about me. [ laughter ] that was piker stuff. >> jimmy: do you ever physically tweet yourself or does somebody do that for you? >> i do not physically tweet in general.
there are times where they -- i'm responding like a particular issue, we're trying to get something out, and i'll get on there so that i'm interacting with young people or something like that, on a special event. generally speaking, i got some other stuff to do. >> jimmy: do you text? >> i don't text. i e-mail. i still have a blackberry. because i can't -- there's one guy. [ laughter ] >> the one old guy, where you at? he's my age. he's my age. somebody my generation. i can't use phones with recorders in them. >> jimmy: oh. >> a lot of the newfangled stuff for security reasons i don't get. >> jimmy: do you have hillary clinton's new e-mail address? [ laughter ] >> i can't share it with you. i don't think she'd want you to have it. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: she specifically mentioned that she did not want
me to have it. >> she said, you're going on kimmel? if he asks for the e-mail address, no way. >> jimmy: you have young kids. every parent has to talk to their kids about social media. but you especially must have to say to your daughters, don't go -- don't do anything, don't post anything, don't ever do anything. >> don't do that. look, they all have their smartphones. and they're texting with their friends. they're doing all the stuff that teenagers are doing. >> jimmy: oh, boy. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> michelle and i try to emphasize to them that they don't want to be on tmz. >> jimmy: yeah. right. i would imagine. by the way, speaking of the news, i want to mention something. last night, very late last night for you in washington, d.c., in ferguson, two police officers were shot. thank goodness -- >> thankfully they're okay. >> jimmy: they're at home, they're out of the hospital. especially, you gave a beautiful speech in selma last saturday, talking about these subjects,
about civil rights, the past, present, the future of civil rights. does that make it especially painful for you when something like this happens? >> obviously we don't yet know what happened. our thoughts and prayers are with the officers and their families. thankfully as you said they're going to be okay. what was beautiful about selma was reminding ourselves that real social change in this country so often has happened because ordinary people are willing in a nonviolent fashion to make their voices heard. and you know, i think that what had been happening in ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest. but there was no excuse for criminal acts. and whoever fired those shots shouldn't detract from the issue. they're criminals, they need to be arrested. and then what we need to do is
to make sure that like-minded, good-spirited people on both sides, law enforcement who have a terrifically tough job, and people who understandably don't want to be stopped and harassed just because of their race, that we're able to work together to try to come up with some good answers. and i think -- i put together a task force after the original ferguson event had taken place that had police officers, police chiefs, and some of the organizers of protests, body in ferguson and in new york. young people. and they came up with some terrific recommendations and found that there's a lot of common ground. and what we have to make sure of is that the folks who disregard and disrespect the other side, people who resort to violence that they're marginalized. >> jimmy: they set us all back. >> but they're not the majority. in the same way that you can't generalize about police officers who do an extraordinarily tough job, overwhelmingly they do it professionally. you can't generalize about
protesters who, it turns out, had some very legitimate grievances. the justice department report showed they were being stopped -- african-americans were being stopped disproportionately, mainly so the city could raise money, even though these were unjust. >> jimmy: i can't imagine how frustrating that must be. i get crazy, and i'm not joking, when i get parking tickets that i feel are unjust. to be put in a situation like that. i do, really. my wheels are not turned properly and i feel likehey're just trying to make money off of me. they're not obeying the spirit of the law. >> and what was happening in ferguson was that you had city government telling the police department, stop more people, we need to raise more money. folks would get stopped, they'd get tickets. then they'd have to wait in line to pay it. take a day off work. folks would lose their jobs. in some cases they were thrown in jail because they didn't have
enough money for the fines. then they'd get fined for that. and so there was a whole structure there, according to the justice department report, that indicated both racism and just a disregard for what law enforcement's supposed to do. as i said before, i said this at selma. it is not unique, but it's also not the norm. and we've got to constantly, when we're thinking about issues of racial progress or any kind of issue, recognize that things get better, but there's still more work to do. and we shouldn't be complacent about the very real existence of problems out there, but we shouldn't despair and think nothing's changed. if people of goodwill, which is the overwhelming majority of americans working together, these are problems we can solve. >> jimmy: the president of the united states is here. we'll be right back!

[ laughter ] >> you know, we've got to keep folks going. there's going to be another election.
the main purpose really is just to make sure the people turn out. the last election we had about one-third of eligible voters voting. and, you know, just trying to work harder to figure out how we can get people engaged. >> jimmy: we had an election here in l.a. last week, i think, and something like 8% of registered voters voted in it. >> i talked about this this weekend at selma. you know, you have folks who risked their lives to make sure we all had the right to vote. we give away our power all the time. you know, everybody's so frustrated with washington, including yours truly. >> jimmy: they're all very busy with facebook. >> but the point is that the reason washington does not work is because two-thirds of us, who should be active, aren't active. and as a consequence, special interests and big money ends up
moving a lot of the agenda, driving gridlock. >> jimmy: speaking of money you have student aid bill of rights. that's something you're very passionate about. it wasn't so long ago you were still paying off student loans. >> still paying them off, absolutely. i was in georgia tech earlier this week. and talked to a big crowd of students about this. i suspect there's some folks in the audience who are concerned about this as well. [ cheers and applause ] everybody understands the economy is now based on your skills, your knowledge, and the reason america ended up becoming the economic super power that we did is because we were the first to have universal public high schools. we had the g.i. bill. we had the best-trained workforce. and young people understand that. the problem is it's also becoming more and more
expensive. and so what we've said is, in addition to the work we've already done to make student loans cheaper, to expand pell grants, to set up a repayment program so young people who want to go into teaching or some other helping profession aren't priced out of it because they've got to pay off student loans, there's other things we can do to lower costs. we're asking people to sign up for what we're calling a student aid bill of rights, to take a series of steps, colleges, state legislators, congress, all to work to make sure college is more affordable. one of the things we're doing is proposing the first two years of community college should be free for everybody. [ cheers and applause ] it should be just like high school. and we can do it. >> jimmy: does this include people who have existing student loans? >> one of the things that we're doing there is to try to help them refinance. because a lot of them take out loans 15 years ago when interest rates were a lot higher. and the same way that you should be able to refinance your mortgage and lower your costs, should be able to do that with student loans. >> jimmy: you can't refinance?
>> a lot of the rules don't allow you to refinance. >> jimmy: i did not know that. >> see, hang around me, you'll learn something. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you won't let me hang around you, you have all these secret service guys. >> no, you -- >> jimmy: i can be very annoying, you'd be surprised. >> we'll have to pat you down. >> jimmy: that's nice. [ laughter ] have you seen the movie "fast times at ridgemont high"? >> i wasalking to sean backstage. and he's a year older than me so we're basically, you know, the same generation. >> jimmy: and did you see him? >> and i thought he looked better blond.

[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're going to austin, texas, next week for south by southwest. >> austin is a great town. one of the best towns. >> jimmy: i agree with you. >> great music, great food, great people. >> jimmy: kanye west is going to be on our show on friday next week.
>> that's right. >> jimmy: he was quoted yesterday, he said, this is a quote, "i understand i'm a servant with my voice, with my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people, call elon musk out of the blue, call obama out of the blue. obama calls the home phone by the way." are you talking to -- are you having conversations with kanye? >> i've met kanye twice. the first time when i was a senator. and he was with his mom. he had just gotten big. he's from chicago. >> jimmy: right. [ cheers and applause ] >> they wanted to meet. he's very soft-spoken, very gracious. >> jimmy: that sounds like him. [ laughter ] >> no, he was a young guy, hadn't quite, you know come into his own. and then about six months ago, he came to an event. look, i love his music. he's incredibly creative. i don't think i've got his home number. >> jimmy: you don't have his home number, all right. i'd love to put the two of you together.
>> i do love his music. it's terrific. >> jimmy: thank you so much for coming.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thanks for coming. >> thank you. >> jimmy: thanks for sliding over for the president tonight, i appreciate it. >> yeah, he prepared me. >> jimmy: did you talk to the president at all? >> me and barry were talking. >> jimmy: you did. you know, i know there's a background check. everyone who works here, we all had to do a background check. did they make you do a background check as well? >> i would assume so. >> jimmy: yeah, well. the fact that you're here, maybe no.
have you ever seen like the results one of these background checks? i never have. i have no idea what might possibly be on this thing. >> i'm reluctant to read anything about myself. >> jimmy: you don't read about yourself at all? >> well, sometimes things, you know -- you have those really good friends who want to share some lovely things that people say. >> jimmy: those people are not your friends. that's one of the first things. people send you -- that's a weird thing people do. look at this terrible thing someone wrote about you. >> it's an odd amusement for them, i suppose. >> jimmy: i suppose so. you grew up in california. >> i did. >> jimmy: which is kind of odd. i think of you as this citizen of the world. and think of you growing up here in l.a., santa monica or whatever. doesn't seem like it fits, necessarily. but tom cruise told us a great story once when he was here. he said that when he flew to l.a. for the first time, you picked him up at the airport.
>> that's true, i think that's true, yeah. >> jimmy: you were pals at that time? >> yeah, we had made a movie together. >> jimmy: made "taps" together, right? >> basically the first movie that i ever did. we spent a bunch of time together in valley forge, pennsylvania. he came out to, you know, start a hopeful career. worked out. >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i think he said you guys drove around, you took him on a tour of the stars' homes. >> that's not true. >> jimmy: that is not true? >> no. i took him to lucille ball's house. >> jimmy: oh. >> it wasn't stars' homes in general, it was lucille ball's home. >> jimmy: specifically lucille ball? >> yeah, a friend of mine -- there was another -- it was because the brother of -- steve van sant? >> jimmy: sure. >> he was in the movie with us, with tom and i, billy van sant. >> jimmy: okay.
>> and, i mean, generationally it didn't make much sense but this guy was a fanatic lucille ball guy. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. he was our age. and so i thought it would be fun to watch tom see his fandom of lucille ball by going along with stalking lucille ball's house. >> jimmy: lucille ball was living there at the time? >> yeah, i didn't look through the window. >> jimmy: you didn't. did billy have a big reaction to the fact that he was in front of lucy's house? >> he'd been there many times. >> jimmy: oh, really. [ laughter ] wow, i wonder if that will show up on your background check. mike tyson was here last week. and he told me a story about you. he said you and your wife at the time, madonna and robin givens, you guys went on a double date with mike tyson and his wife to see "pee wee's big top." >> that's true. [ laughter ]
[ applause ] that's the best. i think mike and i both -- we had had a few drinks before we went to the movie. >> jimmy: okay. he said that too. >> i'm good with having a few drinks before a movie because i like to have another drink. so i think the two of us nodded out within two or three minutes. i really liked the first movie. >> jimmy: right. "pee wee's big adventure." >> i was looking forward to seeing it, but i didn't. neither did mike. so as the end credits came up we kind of woke up. and then both spent the night defending that we had not fallen in love with the leading lady in the movie. we didn't see her. >> jimmy: your wives were both -- >> i guess she was quite sensational and charismatic. but i didn't see it.
>> jimmy: oh, wow. >> neither had mike. but there was a lot of suspicion. >> jimmy: is that something that you encountered frequently? >> a lot of suspicion? >> jimmy: a lot of suspicion, yeah. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wow, that's something else. i can't even imagine what people must have thought when you guys sasheyed into that theater. i can't imagine you going to a movie theater to be honest. >> we got away the whole not -- dinner, drinks, went to dinner where we got suspected. and no, we didn't have any issues that night. >> jimmy: one of my favorite memories of a movie of yours, i remember -- cleto our band leader and i, we saw "bad boys" together. [ applause ] you still got the pillow case with batteries? >> coca-cola can. >> jimmy: coca-cola cans, from the vending machine. and beat the crap out of that guy. i've always wanted to do that. [ laughter ] movie "fast times," when was the last time you saw that movie?
>> it came on television once about eight years ago, and i think my kids -- it would be eight, ten years ago. >> jimmy: your kids have seen it? >> yeah, they've seen it. >> jimmy: and -- that must be crazy to see your dad playing that character. >> it was crazy for me to see their dad playing that character. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: we have a clip for those who may, by some ungodly reason, not have seen this. [ cheers and applause ] >> sorry i'm late. it's like this new schedule's just totally confusing. i know that, dude. >> mr. spicolli. you're ripping my card. >> yes. >> hey, bud, what's your problem? >> no problem at all. i think you know where the front office is. >> you [ bleep ]. [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: might be the greatest pairing put together on film. do people say that to you a lot? >> you [ bleep ]? >> jimmy: yeah. >> yeah, but i don't know that it's related to that. >> jimmy: sean penn is with us. the movie "the gunman." we'll be right back.
