11:35 pm
all right, that is our report. w appreciate your time. >> from all of us here at abc 7 news t >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, awkwafina. from "richard jewell", paul walter hauser. this week in unnecessary censorship and music from mark ronson and anderson .paak. and now, take your place jimmy kimmel! chaus [cheers and applause] chaus. >> jimmy: i'm the host of the show. thanks for coming, thanks for, well, it's very nice. we have a lot to get to. it was, today it was an unpresidential day, even by our very unpresidential standards. you know, last night i complimented the president. i commended him for not throwing
11:36 pm
a tantrum after 16-year-old greta thunberg was named person of the year. we all knew he wanted to be person of the year, we all know it bothered him. but he showed uncharacteristic resfrap restraint. he was on good behavior. sadly, that good behavior lasted just under 24 hours, because this morning, at 7:22 a.m., he wrote, so ridiculous, greta must work on her anger management problem then go to a good old-fashioned movie with a friend. chill, greta, chill, says the sweaty old man who's mad at a magazine because they didn't put him on the cover of it. and the fact that greta thunberg is a teenager, i'm old enough to remember a time when everyone at the white house had a full-blown hissy fit because a witness at trump's impeachment hearing
11:37 pm
the gaul ll to say the word bar. this kid is very good. right after trump tweeted, she changed her twitter bio to a teenager working on her anger management problem, currently chilling and watching a movie with a friend. [cheers and applause] trump hasn't been roasted that thoroughly since the last time he locked himself in his tanning bed. then team trump flexed their come by muscles. this is from the official trump war room account. they photo shopped his head on greta's body, which should not be the first time donald trump has imagined himself on top of a young woman's body. but -- it's why he bought the ms. teen usa pageant. but the idea that orange hulk would accuse anyone else from
11:38 pm
having an anger problem. let's go to the tape. >> what a stupid question that is. what a stupid question. but i watch you a lot. you watch a lot of stupid questions. >> should the -- >> quiet, quiet. get him out of here, get out! sit down, you weren't called. sit down, sit down. go back to uni vision. quiet, quiet, quiet. like to punch him in the face, i tell you. he's a sleaze. quiet, quiet, quiet. go ahead. >> since are you attacking our news organization. can you give us a chance? >> your organization's terrible. quiet. knock the crap out of him, would you? seriously. >> jimmy: the zen master. no one has ever been less self-aware than this man. aside from the obvious vomitousness, knocking a child with as berger's, the tweet he was responding to when he wrote this was written by roma downey, the actress gaticongratulating
11:39 pm
greta. roma downey is married to mark burnett, and mark burnett is the producer of the "apprentice." so far we haven't seen raw footage, but if he starts a war with mark burnett's wife, he could let that footage out, and who the hell knows what, trump crushing sudafed and snorting it off a conference table? maybe punching his son don jr. in the face, pulling his penis out and forcing meat loaf to say how fat it is? all that footage gets released and maybe that's how greta thunberg saves the world. i had a bannhe had a banner day. he tweeted 91 times before noon.
11:40 pm
if you do anything 91 times before noon you belong in a mental organization. we should come up with a new term for when he does this, like a don-soon or lie-phoon or titty-twister. this was his official schedule. he gave brief speech at 11:15, an intelligence briefing at noon and a party at 7:00. people in assisted living facilities do more than this in a day. we're spending a huge a energy trying to remove a man from office who is never in his office. that party tonight is, by the way, the white house congressional ball. last night i presided over the hanukkah celebration, and what a love fest that was. melania in particular ate it up. >> thank you, i love you too.
11:41 pm
and i love ivanka, and i love jared, and i love our first lady. [cheers and applause] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: didn't we just witness the moment that the remainder of melania's soul exited her body? trump also gave a shout out to one of his favorite toys, mark levin, who took a really, a lot of time to get to the podium. >> where are you? i saw him. is that mark? come on, mark, get your way up. make a path. like we used to say in the military, make a path, make a path. >> jimmy: right, right, like we used to say in the military i wasn't in. make a path. the military! by the way, christmas is two weeks -- are you red eady for christmas, guillermo? or no? >> halfway. >> jimmy: who do you still have to buy for? >> my wife and my son. >> jimmy: that's your whole
11:42 pm
family, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: we're going to work on fractions after the show. >> no, i got my mom, my grandma, my cousin. >> jimmy: what does benji, your son want this year? >> he wants a new ipad. >> jimmy: are you going to get that for him? >> of course. >> jimmy: will your mother-in-law be coming over for christmas this year? >> unfortunately, yes. >> jimmy: you know, the holidays can be a stressful time, especially with the election coming, but escape is on the way. >> the holiday season, the most wonderful time of the year. but also the most is stressful. >> so you are putting kids -- >> come on! >> you bleeding hearts! wah! >> can we just calm down? >> i don't think we need to talk this loud at each other. >> family gatherings can bring out the worst. >> are you done? can i bring you another? >> when you start to feel overwhelmed, don't reach for the liquor cabinet, head for the
11:43 pm
tree fort. the first christmas tree with a secret room in the center. just climb in and enjoy a place to hide. >> ah. >> gather your thoughts. >> oh, thank you. >> and just be. >> do you hear yourself? you sound ridiculous. >> enjoy a calming, aroma therapy diffuser. >> hmm, lavender. >> i'm not going to have a transgender in my bathtub. >> use our built-in phone charging station. >> now you woke the baby up. >> and take a monster hit from the jingle bong. as the outside world melts away. the tree fort comes with a secret periscope, so you can see if the coast is clear. >> really? >> the tree fort, only $89.95. >> mind if i join you? it's brutal out there. >> lock sold separately. >> yeah, no problem. >> available at evergreen's.
11:44 pm
>> jimmy: you can always get in the bathtub. you know, we're three weeks away, not only from the end of the year but from the end of the decade, and i think we can all agree that this is a very stupid time to be alive. so we decided to have some fun with that. this afternoon we went out on the street. we asked people walking by about a bunch of current events we made up. these are news items that did not occur in 2019 or ever for that matter. but did that stop people from weighing in on them? let's find out in this year that wasn't edition of "lie witness news." >> we're talking about the biggest news stories of 2019. north and south korea were finally united. was that a big moment of happiness for you. >> i actually watched that live. it was a good thing to see, you know, donald trump kind of go in there and making peace. that was a good thing. i watched it on tv, and i watched north korea and south rea, i believe they went
11:45 pm
somewhere and they kind of met, and they did that peaceful thing. yeah, it was a really good thing. >> you remember when the government shut down because the president couldn't get an mcrib? >> yeah, back in january? >> where were you when you heard? >> i was at work, i work at a natural gas company, so it's very conservative, so i'm very aware of when that kind of stuff happens. >> tell me about when kelly ann came in with a bucket of mcribs and said now the government may reopen, were you shocked? >> i thought it was funny, i would have done the same. >> how many mcribs did she have in that bucket? 40. >> were you surprised when he came on the climate march and grabbed the mic from greta thunberg? >> no. i was not shocked about that at all. >> what was about the look of thunberg's face? >> she was in shock. i would have had the same reaction. >> what did you think of bill cosby's come-back comedy tour?
11:46 pm
>> he does look good for his age. that's for sure. >> you were a little proud of him? >> you know, it's tough to say that i'm proud of bill cosby. but, you know, i guess everybody does their own thing, so. >> why did president trump pardon millie, but not vanilly? >> because of a different religion i believe? because one is black and one is white. >> he's handsome and he fits the character perfectly. >> what did you think when you saw nathan landis for james bond. >> i couldn't wait to see the movie. >> were you outraged when the president made friendship bracelets with the taliban? >> i don't agree with a lot of things he does. that was one thing that pissed me off. >> when did you she? >> i don't know, i live with my
11:47 pm
sugar daddy. >> reporter: what's your sugar daddy's name? >> dean buckerfield. >> how did you feel about billie eilish performing "bad guy ", did it feel like a stunt? >> no, he's a bad guy. george bush, imagine what he did to the economy. it freakin' sucks. i think billie eilish did a good job by performing "bad guys." i love that song. >> you wouldn't lie. >> i wouldn't lie. i'm like abraham lincoln. i never tell a lie. i'm 100 all day, every day, all night, till the day i die. >> jimmy: and probably well after that, too. all right, one more thing before we forge ahead. it's thursday night, means it's time to bleep and blur the big tv moments of the week whether they need it or not. it is this week in unnecessary censorship. >> you have [ bleep ] hard and you [ bleep ] is impressive, and i just want to [ bleep ] you
11:48 pm
all. >> thank you all for being here today. i'm really looking forward to [ bleep ]ing as many of you as time permits before i got to get back on the bus. >> america, are you sick and tired yet of this impeachment [ bleep ]. >> officers are launching a heat is on campaign, plus, spreading holiday cheer through some big [ bleep ]. >> i'm gayle king. he [ bleep ]s puppets. >> it's a [ bleep ]ing frenzy. >> i also want to bring a friend of mine up. he's a tremendous success in so many other businesses, but they only know him because he [ bleep ]s tom brady's [ bleep ] every week. >> my [ bleep ] in your mouth are just as powerful as they are in my mouth. >> ooh, who doesn't love a good [ bleep ]. >> i love a good [ bleep ]. >> jamie? >> deep [ bleep ] dungeon. >> yeah, that's it. >> [ bleep ] magic from new image. the first fitness machine ever to help you master the king of

the audience this every single night, and no one really evercares, but he tells everybody every single night. you both are saginawens. what do you go by? >> saggen-awesome. >> jimmy: that would make for a nice tee shirt. >> someone is literally making plans for it as they watch this show. >> jimmy: i know you probably got here by a plane or something like that, but why did you move to los angeles? >> i wanted to act. i immersed myself my entire life. i was obsessed with it. and i went to be a background extra in a movie, and it was a movie written and directed by lance black, he wrote "milk." >> jimmy: right. >> and i just saw him at the audition, and i figured i'm not going to get a speaking part, so i said hey, i just wanted to say congrats on "milk", it's a beautiful film. i love your speech, i'm a christian. and when you said god doesn't hate gay people, that needs to
12:26 am
be said, thank you. i was ready to walk away, and he said there might be a part for you, let me get your name, and he brought me back, and i booked like the big part in the movie. >> jimmy: he remembered you from that? >> from that. he brought me back. >> jimmy: he didn't even know if you could act and he gave you that part? >> i did have to audition, but i was pretty, i was aggressive and immersive. the guys i was auditioning against worked at like sam goody. >> jimmy: this is back home. >> this was back home in michigan. i made some money and moved to l.a. two months later. >> jimmy: do you keep in touch with him at all? >> i try not to bother him. he's a busy guy, got a family, doing speaking engagements. i text him once a year to say lance black gave me my start. >> jimmy: i bet he takes pleasure in that. he'll be excited to see new this movie, by the way, i thought was great, and were you fantastic in

it. it's called "richard jewell". this is the story of the man who is now deceased, who was wrongly accused of planting a bomb at the olympics in atlanta. it was, and, you know, it's a sad, it is a sad story, for sure. >> it's heavy, you know. it's one of those movies that, it's sort of like you have to google it afterwards because some of the things seem so unbelievable. and then you find out they're real, but it's pretty jaw-dropping. >> jimmy: by the way, speaking of it being real, i mentioned this to sam rockwell when he was here. i was there, in, i was working in a radio station, i was in the parking lot. >> oh, seriously. >> jimmy: at richard jewell's apartment complex. >> what? >> jimmy: with the media depicted in the film. and it is exactly as i remembered it. i mean exactly as i remembered it, and it's a very strange experience to see that. it's almost watching like a home movie or something, but i happened to be there covering
12:28 am
the olympics. i was a sports guy on the radio station. and this happened. it became the big story, and we were out in the parking lot just waiti waiting for something. i doesn't know what. >> that's nuts. suddenly, everybody's like, maybe we'll just stay here to see what we get and we'll put it on whenever, you know. >> jimmy: is it intimidating to be directed by clint eastwood? >> no, and it should have been. and i don't say that out of any poise or arrogance. it's like he puts you at ease. he reminds you, he's a film fan himself, and a lot of the great directors i've worked with, spike lee, clint eastwood, they all show that they're still fans and people and family men, so it deescalates the nerves, but i was more nervous to meet bobbi jewell, richard's mom. she came on the lot, and i was, i got the part, holy cow. and i go in and
12:29 am
th they couldn't have been sweeter. and she goes, you look just like richard. you look just like my son. and she says you're doing things like him that you don't even know you're doing like him. it felt like the ultimate signoff to get her approval. >> jimmy: were you intentionally doing things like him? >> i was looking for bombs, no. i, i was very, i think it's just some inherent stuff, you know, we do have similar tendencies and traits, you know. i'm sure. >> jimmy: you do, you think so, huh? >> more than, a lot of the characters i play, whether good guys or scummy guys, i got a lot in common with a lot of them. there's a reason i get these parts, know what i mean? there's a reason. >> jimmy: do you think that clint eastwood is someone you will keep in touch with regularly? over the course of your life? >> god, i hope so.
12:30 am
i hope he's not sick of me. he's been seeing a lot of me recently. i make him laugh, too, you know. i don't know thousahow to put o. i'm the same person with everybody. i had fun making him laugh. >> jimmy: what makes clint eastwood makes him laugh? >> i think sponts nayity. he's so used to what he does. he's made like 30-some movies. keeping it moving. there was a day when we did the karaoke scene, which thank god isn't in the film, seriously. we had a karaoke scene that got cut. and clint looked at me and goes, "do you even know how to sing"? and i just, everyone's looking, like 40 crew members are looking at my after he says that and and said ♪ l is for the way you look at me ♪ i'm talkin' to you, clinty. i did a whole frank sinatra thing and he looks at me and
