11:36 pm
song? >> guillermo: oh, "yes." "i want to hold your hands," too. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you like that song or are you telling me what you want to do after the show? >> no, i like the song. >> jimmy: okay. things are starting to get slightly more normal-ish on the covid front. the cdc is dialing back their risk advisory for cruise ships. that designation has been reduced from very high to high, as in, you'd have to be high to go on a cruise. [ laughter ] i went on a cruise once and every night at dinner, you have to sit at the same table. we were trapped sitting next to a guy who kept calling the woman he was with his "ladyfriend." [ laughter ] that alone is a reason to play it safe and stay home. but some people might need a cruise right now. a lot of the country is getting hammered by a new winter storm. winter storm "miles" has an interesting weather pattern. this is what miles looks like. it would appear that parts of the south and midwest are about
11:37 pm
to be hit with an avocado. [ laughter ] i don't know if you remember the storm that happened on february 17th last year but it was a big one. winter storm uri hit texas hard. and on this date, one chinless individual rose above them all to bring comfort to his people. >> february 2021 saw a deadly winter storm ravaged the lone star state. >> in texas, nearly 2.5 million people are still without power. severe weather is not letting up. >> while many texans fell victim to the cruel and bitter cold, none suffere more than senator ted cruz. [ laughter ] >> i'll tell you, heidi and me, we lost power for two days. our house was dark, we had no heat. >> it was so cold, the sides of the senator's hair froze off. [ laughter ] on february 17th, with power outages throughout the state, commander cruz and his family quietly boarded a flight and crossed the gulf of mexico to soak up the warm mexican sun. and bring it back home to his frozen fellow texans.
11:38 pm
[ laughter ] >> continuing to work, trying to get the power on. what's happening is unacceptable, a lot of texans are hurting. >> from his command post at the ritz-carlton, cruz worked tirelessly at making sure all hands were on deck. 24 hours later, ted waddled back to houston with a bag full of ponchos to keep his people warm. back home, the locals celebrated their conquering hero's return with music -- ♪ and a banner begging him to re-sign for another six years of bold, courageous leadership. [ laughter and applause ] great leaders of the ones who know the way, go the way, and show the way. and when the going gets tough, ted cruz gets going. [ laughter ] to cancun. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well.
11:39 pm
again, not so good news for the trump family today. first of all, according to a new poll more republicans side with mike pence when it comes to whether or not he could have done anything to change the outcome of the election. which is exciting because it's the first time mike pence has won anything since the westminster dog show. [ laughter ] only 36% of republicans take trump's side. 52% side with pence. which is funny because how sad is it that we now live in a world where we hear slightly less than half of republicans are crazy and we're like, hey, good news. [ laughter ] but that's nothing compared to what happened in a new york court, supreme court. a judge today, ruled that donald trump, ivanka trump, and don jr. will have to sit for depositions as part of the attorney general's investigation into their family business and whether or not they committed fraud. i bet trump gets five seconds into that deposition before he shouts "it was eric!" [ laughter ] the judge says the trumps have 21 days to comply.
11:40 pm
right now, they're looking for a bible tiny enough for him to put his hand on. to swear him in. [ laughter ] eric trump was not deposed for this round of questioning. and maybe it's for the best because no judge or even lawyer should ever be subjected to this. >> where are these prosecutors? it actually hurts our country. push him on it. the actual taxes? where were you? i don't understand. how about -- what -- what the hell -- look at the -- literally -- vaccines, people are -- why is -- where is this -- literally -- offenses -- when do they -- how many -- let me finish. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. yeah. that's a -- he's a chipmunk off the old block is what he is. [ laughter ] meanwhile, while the rest of the family is doing their best to avoid prisons, melania is selling nfts. nft stands for non-fungible tokens which are blockchain-based units of, something. i don't know. [ laughter ] until today, i thought a
11:41 pm
"blockchain" was what melania had on her bedroom door. [ laughter ] to protect her from the bored ape in the next room. but melania today announced the release of the "potus nft collection" which will include 10,000 nfts priced at 50 bucks a pop. they say they'll highlight "iconic moments" from the trump administration. like this highlight, and this highlight, of course this one. [ laughter ] featuring the only paper trump didn't flush down the toilet. [ laughter ] how would she even know what the "iconic moments" from his administration were? half the time she was first lady, she hid in her room, the other half she spent bitching about christmas decorations. [ laughter ] this is the weirdest part, "collectors will enjoy an element of surprise, as the artwork of each nft is revealed only after purchase." you send melania your money and in return you get -- whatever they decide to send back. where do i line up? [ laughter ] what a deal that sounds like. meanwhile, mr. my pillow, mike
11:42 pm
apps liddle, is still at it. you know those truckers who are blocking everything up to -- in ottawa? mike lindell, has decided, to show his support by sending pillows. 10,000 pillows to canada. for some rope he tried to get a truck filled with pillows, but they wouldn't let him in. >> been trying to get my truck into canada, of pillows. we have over 10,000 pillows. we have the kid pillows. the bible stories on them. we have the premium pillows. we have a truckload of over 10,000 pillows we've been trying to get to ottawa. brian, i guess, the cameraman were up there with us, they were going to film it going across. they took brian across, he went across first to test the waters. and i don' know if you even know this. he got detained. him and the fall ra man, over two hours. >> oh my word. >> jimmy: oh, no! oh, man. [ laughter ] you don't do that to brian. who's brian?
11:43 pm
[ laughter ] is brian the guy who made the jesus meets lion painting next to your head? [ laughter ] and another question, why are you sending pillows to canada? they have pillows. i think that's where canadian geese come from! canada. [ laughter ] pillow town. but go on. >> we're going to get them pillows. it's become like a quest. i mean, it's just like, we're going to get them to you even if i have to carry them over the border one tuesdat a time. or we have a couple of backup plans. but those pillows are not returning to my warehouse. >> jimmy: he really drew a line in the sand. [ laughter ] those pillows are not returning to my warehouse! what a stand. who would've ever guessed his voter fraud crusade would wind up being the second craziest thing he's done? mike told "the daily beast" his backup plan was to fly a helicopter over the border and drop the pillows from the sky. [ laughter ] then he claimed he was trolling the reporter. at this point, how would we have
11:44 pm
any way of knowing when you're joking or not? [ laughter ] mike lindell has had a rough week. his bank dropped him, they won't take his money anymore. now he's yelling about launching a pillow attack on canada. [ laughter ] i happen to like the guy so i thought it might be nice to check in, see how he's doing. mike, can you hear me? ♪ minnesota minnesota ♪ >> jimmy: mike, it's -- >> is that kimmie campbell? how the heck you keep getting cameras everywhee? >> jimmy: we never established that. i want to know how you're doing and really what you're doing right now. >> if you must know, i'm burying all my loot in the ground. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, i heard you got banned by your bank. >> that's okay. i call this nature savings account. >> jimmy: okay, that's a positive way of thinking about it. i wanted to ask, what are you doing trying to deliver pillows to canada? >> i got a u-haul packed with luxurious mypillows for the truckers, but those canucks won't let me in! so then i was saying maybe i should toss 'em out of a helicopter.
11:45 pm
>> jimmy: right, i heard that. although -- i don't know. wouldn't they get sucked up into the rotor blades? if you threw pillows out of a -- >> ordinary pillows would get sucked up into the rotor blades, yes. but mypillows are filled with patented dead pigeon technology which helps them fall from the sky like bricks. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, you -- they're filled with dead pigeons? >> patented dead pigeon technology! >> jimmy: i see, okay. [ laughter ] >> other pillows take the feathers, we take the whole bird! [ laughter ] every mypillow has 2.2 pounds of real pigeon meat. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: mike, you know -- they're not going to let you dump pillows full of pigeon meat into canada. why are they keeping you out of canada anyway? >> because the pretty boy who runs that there canada, justin clouseau, says i'm not vaccinated and that i have multiple arrests on account of crack cocaine. >> jimmy: he said that? is that true? >> oh, yeah, that's very true. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh. which thing is true? >> both of them, all of it, yeah. >> jimmy: i see. [ laughter ]
11:46 pm
mike, why do you think the truckers would want or need pillows right now? >> you ever hear that old bible quote "honk if you're horny"? >> jimmy: yeah. >> well, these fellows won't stop honking. so mike's going to send them nice, soft mypillows. they got me through many a lonesome minnesota night. so good. so gosh darn good, oh, boy. it feels like you're doing it with a real goose, jim! >> jimmy: oh. why? >> oh, cripes. i might hafta sneak across the border to deliver these pillows myself. >> jimmy: i heard you say that. wouldn't that make you an illegal immigrant? >> of course not. americans can't be immigrants. that's just about one of the dopiest things i ever heard. [ laughter ] and that's saying a lot cause in the '80s, i almost married a jc been niemann that kin. >> jimmy: oh. >> i loved her, but we fought night and day. >> jimmy: okay, mike. mike, how are you going to get into canada? to deliver your pillows? >> look, it's easy.
11:47 pm
i find a down on its luck peewee hockey team. i buy some new uniforms, recruit figure skaters to join us. then we win the championship with our "flying v" and the nhl invites me to go to canada as a player for the minnesota wild! >> jimmy: mike, hold on a second. isn't that a plot for the movie "the mighty ducks"? >> the what, the who? >> jimmy: "the mighty ducks" starring emilio estevez? >> why, that mexican you know whatofabitch. nobody steals ideas from me! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, he didn't steal the -- >> i gotta get my nephew juno to draw up a lawsuit. >> jimmy: what is that, a cb? >> breaker, breaker! little pigeon, this is rusty moustache, come back. i need legal eagles stat! >> jimmy: mike, that's not plugged in -- >> emilio escondido has been yankin' noodles from my brain box! over. >> jimmy: okay, you seem very busy, mike. i'm going to let you go. >> i gotta take a break. you know what? i think i'm compromised. i'll see you in canada! >> jimmy: all right. that's mike lindell, everybody.

it's once-monthly injectable cabenuva. cabenuva is the only once-a-month, complete hiv treatment for adults who are undetectable. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider once a month. hiv pills aren't on my mind. i love being able to pick up and go. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions post-injection reactions, liver problems,...and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. with once-a-month cabenuva, i'm good to go. ask your doctor about once-monthly cabenuva.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: how you doing? very good to see you. >> hi, thanks for having me. >> jimmy: when did you get back? >> just like a couple of days ago. >> jimmy: by the way, you know, i think -- maybe the last time you were here, you were here after our son billy had heart surgery. >> i was. >> jimmy: you'd had the same heart surgery. >> yes. >> jimmy: you gave billy a very cool snowboard and a little snow outfit. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: so we were watching you on the olympics.
12:27 am
>> oh, amazing. >> jimmy: and trying to explain it. but you know, he didn't quite understand. >> okay. >> jimmy: but he did give you a gift from his special drawer. >> okay. >> jimmy: which is mostly full of stuff he stole from his sister's room. [ laughter ] >> fair enough. >> jimmy: he pilfered. and candy that's not supposed to be in there. that's for you. >> all right! >> jimmy: a gift for your retirement.

[ laughter ] because you're 35. >> yeah. >> jimmy: they acted like they were talking about bob barker or angela lansbury. >> yeah, "there he goes, let's see if he --" yeah. >> jimmy: that has to be strange. you've been going to the olympics since you were 19 years old. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: the youngest guy on
12:28 am
the team. >> i was for a while. which is bizarre to be the youngest, all of a sudden "the oldest competitor dropping in." i felt great. obviously, you know, i'm young at heart. i feel physicaly fit. but yeah, compared to some of my competitors, i mean -- i think one of the competitors was like 17 years old. so i feel a little older compared to them. but i think they're building it up quite a bit. >> jimmy: do your 17-year-old competitors freak out when they meet you? that must be intimidating for them. >> in the beginning, i thought there was going to be more -- kind of like attitude. from my competitors. because it's more, you know hare we're competing together, there's more -- kind of that rift. but no, they were all like, "i played your video game." "i'm a huge fan." i'm like, oh, okay. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so that was fun, though. it made it really fun. >> jimmy: what is it specifically in your sport that makes it harder to compete as you get older? >> i think, you know -- we're just flipping and spinning so
12:29 am
fast. and the margin for error is very small. i mean, i'm going up a 22-foot halfpipe wall, flying out of that at least 20, 23 feet, doing multiple flips and spins. and you see the blue lines they paint on the walls. you have to be on the inside. pthat's all you want to know, just get on the inside of those lines. i don't know, talking with other athletes and friends, they're like, yeah, you know, if i miss that pass, there's another pass. but if i'm flying 20 feet through the air and i'm just off -- >> jimmy: yeah, there's no coming back from that. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: you fell on your last attempt. >> i did. >> jimmy: what was the move that you were trying to do there? >> well, the big move was the triple cork, which is three flips while spinning. you know, i had this big plan. and i fell on my second trick, which was a double flip 1440. and i clipped the wall. i was talking about it. i wasn't inside of the lines enough. i clipped the top. i had this big kind of thing i was waiting to do at the bottom. but -- but that's okay. >> jimmy: yeah. does any part of you go --
12:30 am
>> i say that like this, that's okay! that's fine! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: but you still finished. you finished fourth, which is -- >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: especially at your age, you're used to winning so i know -- it's like tom brady in a lot of ways. this season, how it ended for him. >> of course, of course. >> jimmy: close, but not quite there, it can't help but feel like a disappointment. >> yeah. >> jimmy: is there any part of you that thinks, maybe i'll come back in four years in milan, give it a try again? >> there's always that part of me. and i think i want to call some of the athletes, how do i crave this sort of mentality? because immediately i was plotting, okay, i could just hide away in alaska, learn the tricks, show up, play possum. they think it's over and there i go. [ laughter ] you know, in all fairness, like -- yeah, i've been doing this for so long. >> jimmy: what if president
12:31 am
donald trump jr. himself calls you in four years. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and says, we need you to represent this country. >> you never know. >> jimmy: you start getting older, everybody's asking you when you're going to hang it up. >> yeah. >> jimmy: as soon as you hang it up, everybody wants to know if you're going to come back. >> yeah, i mean -- it's been an amazing run so i'm happy with it. >> jimmy: you should be. >> honestly, there's so much to be done outside of that world that i'm excited to check it out and just be there as a mentor at this point? your friends and your family didn't get to come to beijing because of the covid rules. what did you do after that, after it was over? did you celebrate your career? >> yeah, right when i got home, everyone was there at the airport. >> jimmy: okay. >> so that was really cool. i didn't expect that. >> jimmy: nice. >> i had made this list, my girlfriend said, if you're retiring, make this list of things you want to do. i'm putting this list. pretty close at the top of the list was, go to a super bowl. it's always during the competitor season, i've never been to one. i landed, said hi to, everyone,
12:32 am
"i've got to go," went straight to the super bowl. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: on sunday. >> yeah, it was really, really fun. >> jimmy: was it what you hoped it would be? >> it was, it was great. you know. 50 cent doing that reverse crunch? [ cheers ] like, what is happening? it was great, it was great. >> jimmy: this is a clip that i think we played on the show -- i think it's from, like, 2006 or something like that. >> uh-huh? >> jimmy: you're a teenager here. >> uh-huh. >> jimmy: i want to get your thoughts on this. >> yeah, like, um -- what happened was the funniest thing, is the stewardesses had all seen the games, they were so excited to see me. like, you have the gold. i had, like, unlimited service after that. i was getting drinks, and i was getting snacks, and i was taking photos to toes in the back with all the stewardesses. >> wait a minute, drinks?pyou'r >> i'm talking about mountain dews, baby.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: now that the statute of limitations has lapsed, were you talking about mountain dews? >> we were probably over international waters. [ laughter ] i don't know. >> jimmy: that's right. >> i think i was talking about mountain dews, though, i really was. >> jimmy: when did you decide to cut your hair? was that a conscious decision? >> oh, man. it's the most amazing story. so i had this long, red hair forever. and i was thinking about cutting it. and randomly i was on a trip to las vegas and i bumped into carrot top. [ laughter ] and the carrot sat me down, and i remember -- >> jimmy: "the top." he goes by "the top" now. >> excuse me, "the top." and i remember it being like meeting the ghost of christmas future. [ laughter ] he's like, there's still time for you! i'm stuck like this, save yourself! [ laughter ] and i remember just -- yet anyone. i just went, chop it off. >> jimmy: is that true? >> yeah, the way it happened for
12:34 am
sure. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: wow, he talked you out of your hair. >> yes. he was like -- i was thinking, man, one more olympics. i might be running this for a long time. this is how people know me. he was like, if you have the choice, this is me now, this is it, save yourself. >> jimmy: i feel like he was eliminating the competition. [ laughter ] >> oh, maybe. >> jimmy: very diabolical, it's not just silly stuff in that box. there's all sorts of -- yeah. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: it's great to have you here. >> thanks so much. >> jimmy: congratulations on the unbelievable career in sports.
