>> lou: from hollywood it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- josh gad, anna chlumsky, with music the weather station. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. very nice, welcome. i'm jimmy, the host. thanks for watching. thanks for coming. i was hoping someone would show up. you know, i have to tell you. we have a lot of fun on this show. right, guillermo? >> guillermo: right, jimmy. >> jimmy: it's nonstop fun, right? >> guillermo: yes, all the time. >> jimmy: but not everything is
fun. and right, i'm dealing with a tricky situation at my house. i've been trying to throw out two garbage cans. they got rusty so i threw them out. they've been waiting to be taken to garbage heaven for three weeks now. [ laughter ] every week, the garbagemen come, they empty the plastic ones and leave without these. i mean, look at this. i assume they see them. [ laughter ] they don't match the other ones. and i am torn now between calling or putting a note on the bins. and just leaving them there to find out how long it takes. before someone notices that two of these things are not like the other. what would you do in this situation, guillermo? >> guillermo: just tell your assistant to take care of it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. that's one idea. >> guillermo: that's what i think. >> jimmy: you're not supposed to talk about that stuff on tv. >> guillermo: all right, sorry. >> jimmy: i'm going to wait it out. i'm going to do an update every we week. if they're not gone by christmas, i'll call. [ laughter ]
speaking of gar badbage, you kn the show "the masked singer"? [ laughter ] well, the new season doesn't premiere until next month but the identity of one of the singers has already been revealed. and his name is rudy giuliani. [ moans ] right? that's what i said. the guy trying to destroy our country? he's singing on a show! [ moans ] according to "deadline," when rudy was unmasked at a taping of the show last week, two of the judges, ken jeong and robin thicke, were so outraged, they walked off the set. [ applause ] good. the only people who should be unmasking rudy giuliani is the gang from "scooby doo." "now let's find out who the real traitor is!" fox isn't releasing details about which character was rudy. if you look at it, it's not hard to figure out. these are the contestants. zoom in there. that's obviously him, right? those are miss his real teeth. how does this even happen? i mean, a lot of people at fox had to sign off on this. not one of them was like, "hey, maybe we shouldn't have the guy
who is under investigation for helping to plot an insurrection singing on our show"? and this isn't the first time they've done something like this, remember season one? >> take it off! >> whoo! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you remember season two? >> take it off! >> who is this baby? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: do you recall what happened in season three? >> here it comes, here it comes, here it comes! >> jimmy: and what about what they did in season four? >> oh, i'm excited.
[ applause ] >> jimmy: and that is how we got the coronavirus. [ laughter ] why would rudy even agree to this? did he think he was going to "the masked singer landscaping company"? [ laughter ] only rudy giuliani would try to overthrow the government, break wind loudly in court, sweat hair dye all over one press conference, have another one next to a dildo store, and then try to rehabilitate his image by singing "shake your groove thing" dressed as a pineapple. [ laughter ] but fox should be ashamed of themselves. they should have another show after "the masks singer" that night called "the masks executives." all the fox executives come out in costumes the one who greenlit this iea takes off the mask and gets voted out of television forever. [ cheers and applause ] so "the new york times" right now has unmasked new details about the shady ways rudy was trying to help trump overturn the election. according to two memos obtained by the "times," team trump cooked up an absolutely preposterous plan.
they wanted to create a fake slate of electors to replace the people who were assigned to cast electoral votes for biden with electors who would cheat and vote for trump instead. do you realize how crazy that is? basically, trump tried to use election to overthrow it.of the- it's like he's trying to stab us with a giant pair of ribbon cutting scissors. [ laughter ] and the scariest part of this attempted coup is that it's not just something that happened in the past. it's ongoing. some of these nuts who claim the election was stolen are currently running for secretary of state in their states. that means they would oversee elections in states like nevada and arizona and michigan, which are battleground states. you may remember, it was a secretary of state who refused to let trump "find" 11,000 votes in georgia. then guess what, the republican legislature in georgia voted to censure that man, who by all accounts is a die-hard republican, and remove him as chair of the election board. then they voted to give themselves the power to take over vote-counting in the future. one proposal under consideration
in wisconsin right now which would have had trump winning 8 of 10 electors in 2020 even though joe biden won the popular vote in the state. in other words, the january 6th committee is investigating whether trump tried to steal the last election while he is trying to steal the next election. and by the way, you know how we could fix this? what if, i'm just throwing this out there -- what if the person who got the most votes in the election won? [ cheers and applause ] i mean, think about it. what if we had a system in the united states, it's a little complicated, let me put this idea up on screen to help. [ laughter ] these are the voters. now, let's say this many vote for candidate a, and this many vote for candidate b. and then -- we would add up the total votes for a and the total votes for b. we count the votes and whoever has more of them is the winner. i know, it's tricky. [ cheers and applause ] but i feel like there's something there. we're all so numb to these revelations now. there could be emails from trump saying -- suggesting he eat biden's face off and graft the
face onto his own head so he could be president and everybody would be like, "well, there he goes again." [ laughter ] you know how over the weekend trump said he would give pardons to the rioters who stormed the capitol? well, turns out it's not the first time he floated that idea. in the final days of his presidency, trump reportedly gave serious thought to issuing a blanket pardon, to everyone who supported him in the attack on january 6th. that's him, always looking out for others one thing you have to say. the story says trump asked an aide, "do you think i should pardon them? do you think it's a good idea? do you think i have the power to do it?" and alexa said, "sorry. i'm having trouble understanding right now." [ laughter ] [ applause ] he got weirdly specific. what if i just said, he wanted to know, "is it everybody that had a trump sign or everybody who walked into the capitol who could be pardoned? or everyone wearing jean shorts that could be pardoned? maybe we could give out pardons in return for a donation to my campaign? what if we called it pardon university? it could be like tuition. [ laughter ] it was a crazy plan but you know
what they say about those, sometimes they're so crazy, if you find the right lawyer, they just might work! >> did you or a loved one peacefully protest your way through the windows of our nation's capitol last january? if so, you may be entitled to a presidential pardon. >> hi, it's rudy giuliani, presidential lawyer and dildo aficionado. i want to help you avoid unfair charges brought against you. just because you broke into a federal building to protest something president trump made up. >> usa! usa! >> you may be eligible for a pardon if you committed any of the following patriotic acts. stealing a podium from the rotunda. stealing nancy pelosi's computer. screaming. wiping your blood on the walls. wiping your feces on the walls. peeing on the walls. or trying to hang mike pence. if you believe you've earned a presidential pardon, send a certified check for $10,000 to rudolph giuliani and associates, the ninth circle of hell, zip today 10004.
>> we're coming for you, nancy! >> act now and receive a presidential dose of hydroxychloroquine, absolutely free. warning, may cause death. >> i'll get you the pardon you're entitled to. or just like president trump, you pay me nothing at all. >> void where prohibited. some restrictions may apply. not valid in alaska, hawaii, or any of the continental united states. [ applause ] >> jimmy: something to think about. meanwhile, president biden has been tussling with one of trump's old foes. tiktok. remember when trump tried to ban tiktok and instead, every other app banned him? [ laughter ] the biden administration is hashing out regulations that would limit the reach of certain apps from china, like tiktok. the concern is that china is using those apps to spy on us and steal our data. can you imagine the meeting where they had to present this to joe biden? how do you explain tiktok to a 79-year-old man? [ laughter ] he probably thinks the internet is a series of tin cans connected together by string. [ laughter ] but grampotus put out a forceful statement today, making his case
for the need to crack down. >> hey, there, mr. and mrs. america. it's me, joe the know. i'm ringing the old air raid siren to warn everyone about something call ed tic-tac. we're taking our secret info and wrapping it up for the chinese. sure, it tickles a sweet spot. watch her cut up soap and freeze bubbles. look at that there. is that a kick or what? let's keep those good times right here in the u.s. of a is for applesauce. when i was a tyke, there was a fellow called short stack. all short stack got his legs blown off in guadalcanal, but man oh man could he dance. no siree. so let's all be a little more like short stack. except for when you drown in lake erie.
what are we talking about today? that's right. osteoporosis is no joking chemo saab bay. milk of mag near yeah really hits the spot. i'm joe biden, and -- that's it. right? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well said, mr. president. you hit that right on the head. the latest squabble in washington right now is over the forthcoming vacancy on the supreme court. biden say he plans to nominate the first black woman to serve on the supreme court. and that -- [ cheers ] >> jimmy: -- did not hit will with a number of republicans, including ted cruz and senator john kennedy of louisiana. >> i'm not going to vote for a justice who's going to try to rewrite the constitution every other thursday, to advance a local agenda. >> jimmy: yet you expect people to vote for a senator who says "thurd-dee." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: john kennedy, he went to oxford. at one time he was a democrat, now he pretends he's a
down-home, folksy, republican guy. his campaign ads are like norman rockwell-esque, full of homespun -- he's the kind of man who would proudly wear diapers. so much so, that we took the audio, the announcer and whatnot, from a commercial for bladder medication and put it over the video from one of his real campaign commercials. and the result is everything we love about america. >> we all have internal plumb recognize are for some of us with overactive bladder, our pipes don't work as well as they should. i learned there's something more i should do. i take care with veslcare. >> proven to treat overactive bladder with symptoms of frequent urges and leaks day and night. if you have stomach or glaucoma problems, do not take veslcare. tell your doctor if you become constipated for three or more days. >> why wait? ask your doctor about taking
care with veslcare. >> i'd rather drink weed killer. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: be my guest. he's a tough old lady, that john kennedy. [ laughter ] not as tough as this old lady. this is a walmart in british columbia where a shoplifter was trying to get out the door with a kurt full of stuff. he did not expect to be stopped by a crime-fighting grandma. >> are you going to pay for that? >> yeah. >> go ahead. >> huh? >> are you going to pay for it? >> excuse me. >> excuse me! [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. damn thief! [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> come on, bud. >> [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. >> come on. >> get out! >> all right. >> get out! get out! >> take your [ bleep ] and go. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i love that we're rooting for walmart.
right? [ laughter ] nice work, grambo. that was smooth. one more thing before we move on. it's thursday night, that means it's time to bleep and blur the big moments of the week in tv, whether they need it or not. it's "this week in unnecessary censorship." [ cheers and applause ] >> if you have a chance, maybe next year, brian, you and i will go. because i feel you need some groundhog [ bleep ]. >> right. >> records from the trump white house have been turned over to investigators. it seems many of them have been [ bleep ]ed up. >> here's how you actually know he's worried. he just [ bleep ]ed on mike pence. >> well, one of the advantages of no longer being vice president is i can [ bleep ] my own [ bleep ]. >> i truly don't believe he enjoyed [ bleep ]ing anybody's ass more than he did mine. >> check out this [ bleep ], the frozen pond here. >> unbelievable, you might have quite a work ethic. >> that's what my wife says, but she doesn't know how much i [ bleep ] off at work, actually.
>> okay, that's the trick there. >> with the metal pole, i'm going to keep my [ bleep ] in my mouth. >> thank you, appreciate that. >> you fell into a septic tank? covered with human [ bleep ]? >> yeah. they call me pookie dookie now.

[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> slimming. ask me anything, i'm ready. no, no, this is good. >> jimmy: i was thinking about you.

[ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> jimmy: and it's great and everything. but to the point where it's driving us insane. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and now it has been replaced, i'm maybe sorry to report, maybe you're happy to hear this, i don't know, by "encanto."

[ applause ] i'm sorry. but it's a phenomenon. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and i keep -- it's like, you know, when you have people who are addicted to cigarettes? they say, give them 50 cigarettes and they'll quit. i've tried that with "we don't talk about bruno." but it only seems to make them stronger. they're not -- i was hoping it would make them sick of it. it's making them stronger. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: weird thing about kids, when they like something, they cannot get -- they have no regulator on them whatsoever. >> no, no. no, but we need to stop talking about talking about bruno. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: you've come over to this side. >> i've come over, i'm with you. >> jimmy: you were on a very, very -- >> i do not fit in this suit, jimmy. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: as long as you fit in the chair, we're okay. i love the show "curb your enthusiasm." [ cheers and applause ] i love your episode of that show. how did it happen? how did you wind up on the show? that's kind of i think, me personally, it's like, it's something that you always kind of hope they'll ask you to do. then when they do ask you to do it, it's great, right? >> i remember you being on it. >> jimmy: i was on it. >> outstanding. and i'm the biggest larry david fan. you can imagine getting a call from larry. [ cheers ] >> jimmy: larry called you? >> larry called me. apparently he doesn't have people that do that for him. [ laughter ] josh, i want you to come and do an episode of "curb your enthusiasm." and i said, i would love to. at that point, i didn't qualify for the vaccine. so i was a little nervous about doing it. i hadn't worked.
and he says -- what he says to me, josh, the median age on our show is 75, you're going to be just fine. [ lauhter ] so i went and i did it. but there was a bit of a hiccup that i haven't spoken about publicly. and i'm a little embarrassed about this. i had a neck ache that morning. >> jimmy: oh. >> thank you. [ laughter ] so sympathetic. >> jimmy: your family is here. >> thanks, mom. [ laughter ] and so i took two advil, three advil that morning before going to work. and i got to set. and they're all talking to me. and i just hear them garbled. i'm like, something's not right. and i called my wife. i'm like, can you take a look at the bottle next to the bed? she goes, yeah, what do you need to know? what's on it? she goes, advil. i go, thank god. she goes, "p.m." i took three advil p.m. >> jimmy: that's bad. >> and shot an episode of "curb

[ laughter ] so i was a little confused. >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> because i was on drugs, without my permission, i got a letter from my lawyer months later. and you get like writers when you do tv and film, you get riders about certain things. they sent me a nudity writer. and it basically issued a notification of how many inches of ass i was permitting them to show on camera. >> jimmy: oh. >> i'm like, did i do an episode of "euphoria" that i forgot about?

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's a really good point. >> it's been hard keeping the secret, but here we are. the show, it's a brilliant metaph metaphor, for the idea that love is messy, love is scary. and abe foreside, this amazing australian director who directed me in "little monsters" that i did with lupita nyong'o go. thank you so much, same person who was sad for me before.
