you got your annual report card from spotify today? [ laughter ] you know this? spotify, if you don't know, sends you this year-end wrap up. it's a little breakdown of your listening habits for the year, which is fun, but weird. like, imagine if postmates did this. [ laughter ] you ordered out 220 times this year and ate more than 800 slices of pizza. it's a bit of an invasion. so this was my list. according to spotify, these were my top five artists for 2021. james taylor, the spinners, alabama shakes, huey lewis and the news, and billy joel. [ cheers and applause ] four of them are also my top five artists for 1985. [ laughter ] after they sent me this list, they also scheduled me for a prostate exam. [ laughter ] it was very strange. they might as well have sent me a text saying, "you are not cool at all." in case you're wondering. [ laughter ] my biggest problem with this is, the year isn't over yet. it's the first day of december. i still have a lot of listening to do. what if i go totally nuts on the doobie brothers this month?
11:37 pm
[ laughter ] the big news here at abc is, we have officially chosen a new bachelor. did you see the smoke signals coming out of the vatican? [ laughter ] that is why. unlike past bachelors which were created naturally, this one was actually concocted in a laboratory. [ laughter ] using dna from three previous bachelors. you can't tell me those aren't all the same guy. [ laughter ] the new bachelor is a 28-year-old former nfl player named clayton. clayton got sent home on "the bachelorette" last week. he says he's just a midwest guy from missouri that wants to find love. well, clayton, you've come to the wrong place. [ laughter ] clayton is very handsome. and appears to be a nice enough person. but i'll be honest, i don't trust a guy when you can see his muscles through a sweater. [ laughter ] i just don't. twitter has announced that they are going to start taking down photos and videos that were posted without permission. twitter will now ask you a series of questions when you're
11:38 pm
about to post an image to make sure it's yours to tweet. and they do it in a weird way. before you post, twitter asks "what's happening?" which is strange. i don't know how you're supposed to respond. i'm on twitter, nothing's happening, obviously. then, if you attach an image, but now when you press tweet, it asks a follow-up question. "is everything in this post, including photos, suitable for public posting?" you say yes and it asks, "have you considered keeping this thought to yourself?" [ laughter ] and then, "why tweet at all? honestly. go ride a bike or something." [ laughter ] is this what 10-year-old you saw yourself doing when you grew up? after say, yes, okay, fine, but when's the last time you showered? [ laughter ] and then, if you clear all those, you're ready to post. you can still post photos of public figures, whether they like it or not. for instance, if you wanted to share this photo we made of ted cruz sitting on a hot dog. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's totally still okay. and since it's okay, you should
11:39 pm
do so with #hotdogteddy. i mean, why not? hot dog teddy may be getting a new colleague in the senate, a famous one, too. dr. oz is throwing his stethoscope in the ring. i can see a lot of excitement for that. despite living in new jersey for the past two decades, dr. oz is running as a republican in pennsylvania, where he voted this year, absentee, using his in-laws' address. but he promises to be the best new jersey senator pennsylvania has ever had. [ laughter ] last night, he announced his candidacy while kneeling before the all-powerful captain of the maga cheer squad, sean hannity. >> and i've taken on big pharma, i've gone to bottle with big tech, i've gone against agrochem companies, big ones. i've got scars to prove it. i cannot be bought. cannot be bought. >> try aqua force first-ever ointment body spray. turkish airlines cares more about your flight safety than anything else.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, you know what? you can't be bought when you've already been sold. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] he's obviously been planning this for a while, because he already has ads running in pennsylvania. >> in every part of the state, pennsylvanians are struggling. >> the real age of your vagina is 73. >> oh, my god. >> difficult times. >> how many of you have penises that bend to the left? >> require strong leaders. >> i'll be the body, you be the poop, and that's our exit sign to get you out of here. >> go, go, go, go! >> yes! >> leaders like dr. oz. >> your anus looks like your lips. >> to rebuild america.
11:41 pm
>> i have built for you, for the first time ever, on our show, your own giant rectum. >> dr. oz for senate. >> i'm dr. oz and i approve this message. >> paid for by americans who thought this was a joke but i guess dr. oz really is running for senate. what the [ bleep ]? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. i always liked dr. oz. i don't know what his politics are. announcing on "the sean hannity show" doesn't seem like a great start to his campaign. and i wonder if he's going to make it through the vetting process. i happen to know firsthand, this man is a serial testicle fondler. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, we both are. we need a better health care plan, you know, guillermo? >> guillermo: yes. >> jimmy: one day we might be able to say that a u.s. senator
11:42 pm
squeezed both our nuts. [ laughter ] >> guillermo: for sure, yeah, for sure. >> jimmy: our former president is denying a story from one of his own people again. remember when everyone suspected that the real reason trump didn't get tested right before the first presidential debate was because he knew he had covid? well, turns out, we were right. according to a new book by former chief of staff, mark meadows, trump tested positive for covid three days before his first debate with joe biden. meadows writes that when he informed trump he'd tested positive, trump replied, "oh [ bleep ], you gotta be [ bleep ] kidding me." which is what most of us said when he was elected president. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i do want to break down the timeline here. so september 26th, 2020, trump is not feeling well and tests positive for covid. he then tests again, gets a negative result, says "well, that settles it, i'm fine" and continues to hold a number of maskless ass kiss rodeos. then on september 29th, trump doesn't get tested before his debate with biden because he
11:43 pm
arrived late at the venue. and fox news lets him go on, even though the rules were you needed to test negative. and then, three days later, he announces to the world he has covid and is airlifted to the hospital like a cow with a broken leg. [ laughter ] fox should not have let him debate. joe biden is 143 years old. [ laughter ] the debate moderator, chris wallace, is no spring chicken. he said they were relying on the honor system. which, you're relying on the honor system with donald trump? you might as well rely on the dewey decimal system. [ laughter ] have you met donald trump? "do you promise you're negative, guy who ran a fake university?" of course typhoid harry wanted to debate anyway. he released a statement this morning, saying "the story of me having covid prior to, or during the first debate is fake news." the book, his guy, his current friend, mark meadows, his chief of staff, wrote this book. now he's saying he's making it
11:44 pm
up, which is especially hilarious because in october when he announced the book, trump put this statement out. "mark meadows, our great chief of staff during some very exciting white house years, has written a new book entitled 'the chief's chief.' it is available for pre-order now and doing really well. 'the chief's chief' would make an incredible christmas present, and with united states supply lines totally dead, and with thousands of ships having no way of unloading because of incompetent leadership, you will have no other thing you can buy anyway. seriously, it's a fantastic book, and mark meadows and his wonderful wife, debbie, are great people. order here." two months later, mark meadows is a jerk and it's fake news. [ laughter ] and if you do the math on the covid, it means trump had it at that little soiree he threw for judge amy coney barrett. after which at least eight people who were there tested positive. i wonder who they got it from? i wonder whose tiny hand they all shook? [ laughter ] and even though trump knew he tested positive on september 26th, he called into fox news to suggest that he might have caught it on september 27th from gold star families who lost a loved one in war.
11:45 pm
>> i figured there would be a chance that i would catch it. sometimes i'd be in groups of, for instance, gold star families. i met with gold star families. i didn't want to cancel that. they come within an inch of my face sometimes, they want to hug me, they want to kiss me. >> jimmy: right, "so i infected them with covid." what else are you going to do? [ laughter ] the only thing shocking about any of this is that anyone is shocked by it. of course, he didn't tell the gold star families and the supreme court justice and joe biden he tested positive. this is a guy who doesn't even wear condoms with porn stars. [ laughter ] he draws on weather maps and tells you it's the real weather. enough with the shock. sadly, testing positive for covid was the only positive thing he did in four years. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] but he's gone now. i don't know. it's kind of like -- i know it's enough, but it's kind of like seeing what your ex is up to since he cheated on you. [ laughter ] we've come a long way during this pandemic, and it's time now to look back at what was in the

11:53 pm
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, there. welcome back. dr. ken jeong and the ladies from "pen15" are with us. but first, i have a story. i want to share it, it happened last week. the day before thanksgiving, wednesday, we had an appointment to get our daughter jane the covid vaccine. and we haven't exactly been looking forward to doing this, because the last time jane got a shot, we literally had to peel her out from under a chair at the doctor's office. she got a flu shot. so this time, we decided not to give her a heads-up. let's just get her in there and do it. the same way she was conceived, really. [ laughter ] so my wife molly takes jane to the park to tire her out or whatever, and one of the kids asked if they could get ice cream, which is something we were planning to do with jane after the shot. so my wife says, "i'm sorry, we can't, jane has an appointment." and now jane becomes suspicious. she says, "a doctor's appointment?"
11:54 pm
and molly's like, uh-oh, here we go. about it."e car, we'll talk - jane is like, "am i getting a shot?" [ laughter ] and my wife, who doesn't want to cause a scene at the park, says, "let's talk about it in the car." and jane says, "mom, we always tell the truth." which is not even close to true, by the way. [ laughter ] [ applause ] we are constantly lying to her and she is frequently lying to us. she thinks a stuffed elf flies back and forth from the north pole every night to our house. okay? but jane says, "tell the truth. am i getting a shot?" and molly says, "yes. yes, you are." now jane bursts into tears and runs, just starts running for it. across the park. screaming, "i'm having a heart attack!" [ laughter ] "i'm definitely having a heart attack!" we don't know how she knows what that is. and the parents and kids are now gathering, wondering if a 7-year-old is having a heart attack. [ laughter ] then we get some help. jane's friend charlie runs after her to console her, which helps a little. it calms her down a little bit. so my wife says, "charlie, will
11:55 pm
you help me get jane in the car?" charlie is like, yeah, okay. she starts leading jane to the car. takes her hand. jane realizes what's happening. she turns and says, "whose side are you on?" [ laughter ] and charlie, who's been on jane's bad side before, is like, "sorry, i'm on jane's side." and we're on our own. so jane goes back to screaming, and our 4-year-old billy is asking, "what's a heart attack?" [ laughter ] and a by we don't know, a strange boy, about 8 years old, is looking on, he's witnessing this drama. he goes, "that's the cry of a kid getting the vaccine." [ laughter ] [ applause ] so anyway, after 20 minutes of hysterics, i'm at the doctor's office waiting for them to get there. my wife finally gets a writhing, screaming jane into the car, where my wife has wisely packed a donut in anticipation of this terrible moment. that doesn't work. she didn't care at all about the doughnut.
11:56 pm
she's like, "what did i do to deserve this?" [ laughter ] and her mother says, "you are getting a shot to protect yourself and others from getting sick and dying." and jane says, "i'd rather die!" [ laughter ] she is now a full blown anti-vaxxer. [ laughter ] and then they go to the wrong address. they're at the wrong doctor's office. i'm waiting. and finally, they get to the doctor, i'm in the parking lot. they get out of the car, molly is like she escaped a fire. jane is begging to do her own research. [ laughter ] billy wants to know about heart attacks. i'm standing there like, all right. we go in. i take over. jane is fighting like a mahi mahi when you get it on the deck of a boat. she's just flopping around. the nurse explains what's going to happen, and that makes things worse. but she's trying to be nice. we finally just beg her to please stay still and get this over with. finally she does. it takes one second, it doesn't hurt. and after 40 minutes of shrieking and pleading and snot all over everything, jane gets a lollipop, she gets a sticker,
11:57 pm
she gets a stuffed animal, one of those pop-it things. i threw in some bitcoin just for the hell of it. [ laughter ] and then, finally, we get back in the car. my wife is trembling. but jane is now, suddenly, in a great mood. she's like, "mom, roll the windows down and play this 'girl is on fire' because i'm kinda on fire." [ laughter ] she's belting out the song, the windows down, all the way home screaming "i'm vaccinated" at every car that passes by. [ laughter ] so now she's vaccinated. and we still haven't told her there's a second shot. [ laughter ] [ applause ] you know what? i may have to ask you to do that for us. >> guillermo: i will do it for you. >> jimmy: i'm glad she got the shot. the first case of the omicron variant in the united states was confirmed in san francisco today. which the maga world must be so excited about, sa francisco. "who should we blame? the gays, the asians, pottery barn?"
11:58 pm
it's an embarrassment of riches! but the world health organization is advising people over 60 to put a hold on their holiday travel plans. right. anyone over 60 who's traveling for christmas is already at the airport lined up at the gate. [ laughter ] but they say if you are over 60, not only should you avoid travel, you should avoid lululemon. that store is not for you anymore. [ laughter ] yesterday, we learned that lebron james of the lakers, it seems that he tested positive for covid, which is bad news for the lakers. and also the last time kyrie irving gets invited to taco tuesday. [ laughter ] we don't know what variant lebron has or if he even has -- this omicron variant is so new that a lot of people haven't even heard about it. plus, its name is confusing. it sounds like a pastry of some kind. when it comes to deadly virus variants, omicron is the new kid on the block. so we went out on the street and kind of, in a new omicron ut it- edition of "lie witness news." ♪
11:59 pm
>> we are talking about the fact that the lakers just signed omicron. what did you think when you heard about that? >> i thought that was a good deal for the lakers. i think they're going to make a lot of progress in the future. >> who's more dangerous, omicron or lebron james? >> lebron james, we'll see how it goes. i think omicron is going to be dangerous out there. >> do you want to congratulate the lakers on getting omicron? >> absolutely, omicron, lebron, good luck the season. >> talking about the kanye album "omicron" that just dropped. what are people saying about it? >> i heard a lot of mixed reviews. a lot of people love it. >> are you liking some of the stuff off "omicron"? >> yeah, i liked a couple. >> i'll name a kanye album, you tell me if you like "omicron" better or the album.
