11:35 pm
for all of us, thanks for being here. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- kumail nanjiani, cnn's jim acosta, from "yesterday," himesh patel, and "this week in unnecessary censorship." and now, simply put -- jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: thank you. gracias. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for joining us here in hollywood. can you feel summer coming on? do you feel that? today was the last day of spring, which means tomorrow is the first day of summer, finally we get to see the weird guy from i.t. in sandals again. it's all very exciting. our president is making some frenemies this summer. at the white house, trump hosted
11:36 pm
the prime minister of canada, justin trudeau with whom he's had a contentious relationship. you know you have a hot head president when you have to defuse tensions with canada. trump hasn't threatened to build a wall on the northern border, so. the president is having a bigly week. he launched his campaign and was on the cover of "time" magazine and looks like desk salesman of the month. how is this a way to position your body. in the interview, he says my whole life is a bet. and right now, the white house is running about as smoothly as one of his bankrupt casinos. he chatted with time for about an hour. he made the claim nobody in history has beenreated as unfairly as he has. he's done more in two and a half
11:37 pm
years than any president ever. he had someone bring him a list of his accomplishments, 72 bulleted, from one winning the election to save a turkey's life during thanksgiving. he ordered coke by pushing a button. he has a red button. it's next to the faucet that dispenses ranch dressing into his mouth. he was on fox news last night being lathered with love by sean hannity. >> it was like being at a world championship college football game where the score was tied. going into the last minute. it was, the entire rally. it was an incredible scene. and outside, there were thousands of people. and, i mean, we were asking people not to show up. we were saying please don't come, letting the word out,
11:38 pm
because we had 121,000 people. >> by the way, we searched ev y everywhere today found no evidence that they asked no one to come. they said they'd have food trucks and big screen tvs outside the arena. the city officials in orlando estimated the crowd at 19,792. so he's only off by about 100,000 people. this is another interesting mcnugget. trump's campaign team has come up with a diabolical way to make money. every time the president says or tweets something crazy, it causes a surge in online activity, because people want to know what he said. so whenever that happens, the campaign floods the web with ads, right at those moments to encourage his supporters to buy maga merchandise. basically, they've figured out a way to monetize stupid, which is kind of smart, really,
11:39 pm
[cheers and applause] but he's been raking it in. they made almost $25 million the day after his pep rally. there's plenty of new merchandise, including this incredible piece of shirt. this is not the cover of a kid rock album. that is our president. let's put that up on the wall so we can take it in. let me show you what we have over here, because this is really something special. this is, you can see the president of the united states perched atop a run away train, wearing what appears to be a championship wrestling belt. with machine gun bandoleers across his chest. there's a large unexplained explosion behind him to symbolize america. up there you see a helicopter. seems to be firing missiles at a bald eagle. the bald eagle's also carrying a weapon of some kind, as eagles do. and down here, there's a little now if that's for d ofgi
11:40 pm
twitter or he's planning to deep fry it and eat it for breakfast. there's the bird. and up here there's a flying saucer, a ufo which means we need to send in the space force. and obviously, this shirt is available in tank top, too. so, anyway, that's what you get your uncle for christmas. this is going to be a major part of the election in 2020. several southern states are doing what they can to overturn row rowe versus wade. they want to get the supreme court to reverse its decision. alabama has enacted a near total abortion ban. no woman should ever be forced to raise a child in alabama. it just shouldn't happen. [ applause ] and this is an issue that, that has divided this country for
11:41 pm
almost 50 years. women are still free to pick the name of the baby with the husband's permission of course, but these strict antichoice laws put women's reproductive rights at risk. thanks to these laws, not only is the right to get an abortion being threatened, even birth control is more difficult to get. >> for today's woman, having choices is more important than ever. when you need emergency contraception, the number one obgyn method is plan b. plan b is the best way to give you the reproduct ive choices yu need. actually, plan b might not be available in your state. fortunately, there's plan c. c stands for car, as in get in one and drive 230 miles or so to a neighboring state. >> and alabama has essentially outlawed emergency contraception.
11:42 pm
alabama, louisiana, georgia, even ohio. they're all trying to restrict women's reproductive health rights. >> now that you're actually pregnant, it's time to consider other options. plan d. d is for doctor. just find someone who claims to be one on craigslist. meet them behind a popeye's fried chicken and voila. who says women don't have the right to choose? >> hey, darlin'. get in the car. >> okay, okay. how about this. plan e. get emotional. go ahead and cry. just cry that sucker right out of you. >> hey. how'd it work? >> okay. try this one on for size. plan f. as in [ bleep ]ed. because that's what you are. would it kill you to smile? >> available at walgreen's.

>> yes, i would say that, it's very sad what he's going through now being president of the united states. >> jimmy: there's a lot of real good stuff in the book. but he seems to have, i feel like deep down maybe he kind of likes you, even though he hates you, because sometimes he, of course he mostly hates you, but sometimes he compliment, he begrudgingly compliments you. >> he does that, yes, and i write about that in the book. there's an episode in february 2017 when we have a press conference. during this press conference he called my "very fake news." after the press conference is over, i get a phone call from hope hicks, and she goes, jim, i just want you to know the president said you were very professional today. and he said "jim gets it." and i thought wait a minute. i was just "very fake news" a few minutes ago and now i'm "very professional." it just goes to show this is a
12:25 am
reality show schtick that he took from "the apprentice." >> jimmy: could it possibly be that by complimenting you you will go easier on him? >> i think that's part of it. as i write in the book he loves the coverage but hates the scrutiny. one of the things, when we call him out on the falsehoods, some people call them lies, that's when it gets under his skin and folks get upset about it. >> jimmy: and yet he keeps doing it, so it doesn't seem to bother him that much. >> the president of the united states has uttered approximately 10,000 false or misleading statements since coming into office according to the washington post. i write that we are here not just to report the news but here to defend the truth. >> jimmy: well, yeah, i guess so. >> it's got to mean something. >> jimmy: not by choice, but that is the way it kind of has turned out to be. >> right. >> jimmy: one of the other items in the book, you said someone, i assume a senior official told
12:26 am
you that the president is insane. >> yes, that did happen. you know, from time to time i'll talk to officials, and they'll want to talk about this anonymously. they don't want to give their name. and i was just sitting down to have drinks with this person one day. he sat down across from me and said "the president's insane". and i went on to say what are you talking about? and he said the president seemed ignorant of the constitution. don't take it from me. take it from people who work inside the white house. they are exhausted at times because of his behavior. >> jimmy: and yet a lot of them keep working there and don't say anything publicly. >> that's right. one of the reasons why we've seen a problem with the white house press secretary, the one we have now or the one before is a lot of these folks have lost sight of the fact they work for the american people. they don't work for donald trump, they don't work for the trump organization. they're supposed to work for us. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: theoretically. >> theoretically. >> jimmy: i don't think that's how donald sees it. will you miss sarah huckabee sanders when she's gone?
12:27 am
>> i will miss her terribly. >> jimmy: will you be invited to the party do you think? >> i don't think so. >> jimmy: what is your relationship with her like? off camera of hyou've had probl. >> after they took away my press pass, we had to go to court, i have it with me, they're not getting it this time. after i got it back there was a chas party wi christmas party and she and this guy bill shine came up to me and they wanted to sing the 12 days of christmas. and i'm thinking to myself okay we just went through this whole press pass court case and everything. we got to about five golden rings and i'm like, that's it. i'm out of here. >> jimmy: just the three of you they wanted to sing it? that's the craziest thing i've ever heard. >> it was. and i didn't know if it was deck the halls or deck the correspondent. >> jimmy: wow, that's really very disturbing, almost like a horror movie. >> it is, it was, actually.
12:28 am
yes. >> jimmy: and what about sean spicer? you did not, he's not going to like this book at all. >> he's not, well, listen, i would love to have a professional relationship with all of them, civil and polite at all times, but there have been times where it gets a little heated, gets out of hand. i was with my son one morning and i get this phone call at 7:00 in the morning and it says sean spicer and he proceeded to call me something i can't say in front of a family audience here. there was an f-word in there and so on. and my son looks at me and goes, dad, who was that. and i said, son, that was the white house. >> jimmy: that kind of sums it up. how old is your son? >> he's 10. >> jimmy: coming through the phone it was so loud? >> it was so loud it was coming through the phone. >> jimmy: that is really, really crazy. who do you think the next press secretary will be? my sources are saying mary hart. >> might be donald trump. he's his own communications
12:29 am
director. he might be his own press secretary. you know, there's a spokesman for the first lady, stephanie grisham, she may get it. but my sense of it is we're going to have a situation now where we're not going to see this white house briefing very much anymore. it's been almost 100 days since the last white house briefing. this used to be when the press secretary would go in, answer all of our questions, we don't do that anymore. now sarah sanders goes to the fox news live position. takes questions from them. and if she has time she'll stop and take questions in the driveway. it's not what the taxpayers are expecting. we pay their salaries. we should be getting our money's worth. not that i'm playing to the audience. >> jimmy: the photograph on the cover of this book, there as you right here, kind of just says the whole thing. you asking the question and the president going all right, jim, damn it. >> you know, it's funny, that picture i believe was taken right after i got my press pass
12:30 am
back. and they were saying we're never going to talk to jim acosta again. the next day, after i got my press pass back he took a question, a followup question. >> jimmy: sometimes the live work out all right. >> we're there to hole thed the feet to the fire. we're here to work on behalf of the american people and get answers to these questions. >> jimmy: jim acosta.
