tv   Jimmy Kimmel Live  ABC  April 13, 2018 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
we appreciate your time. i'm dan ashley. >> i'm a >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, john cena. congressman joe kennedy iii. and music from rozzi. and now, stay put -- here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, everyone. welcome. thank you. very nice. welcome to the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. it's too much already. sit, sit. well, i tell you what, right off the bat, i notice right off the bat that we have a lot of white people here tonight.
11:36 pm
[ laughter ] you guys will enjoy this. imagine from the world of golf. i know golf is not usually interesting, but the masters got going today. they have a special par 3 tournament, and they have two holes in one in this tournament. is it holes in one or is it holes in ones? guillermo? >> guillermo: holes in ones. >> jimmy: holes in ones? [ laughter ] >> yeah, i think. >> so show this climb. first, the legend, jack nicklaus played out of of the nine holes, but he turned his clubs over to his grandson gary, who is 15 years old, and the golden cub as he'll be known from here forth. only one stroke to sink it. of course, the family went crazy. i don't know why, but his grandfather cried. it was very sweet. tony finau, he hits. his kid is there.
11:37 pm
the ball almost goes into the gallery there, but it rolls back toward the flag. and you're never going to believe what happened here. it went in. so now that's not the end of the story. so now he's running, celebrating, and watch, and he actually dislocates his ankle. celebrating the shot. but he finished the round. he also made history as the first person ever to get hurt playing golf. congratulations to them. there's so much nonsense going on in the country right now. so much anxiety and unpleasantness. i thought it might be nice to start the show on a positive note with a special message from a special man, the host of the 700 club, mr. pat robertson, with a thought for the day. ♪
11:38 pm
>> i know, again, nothing in the bible about mermaids. i think they're kind of half fish and half women. i don't think that such a creature exists. >> well, thank you. thanks, pat. i'm glad you finally cleared the mermaid controversy up. a kid wrote in and asked pat if the bible said it was okay to play with mermaid toys. good news, it is. imagine you go to hell and it's for that. there's new information about donald trump and the russia investigation. according to "the washington post," last month special counsel robert mueller told the president's lawyers he was a subject of the investigation but not the target of the investigation. which is kind of like when the principal at your school says, i got my eye on you, mister. but mueller told trump that, while he is not a criminal target, he still needs to ask him some questions. basically he's treating the president like the guy who used to work with the woman who turned up dead on this week's "law & order." some people believe he could be saying that to bait trump into sitting down at a interview. if you want to bait trump, you
11:39 pm
leave a trail of cheeseburgers and that's how you bait him. he's there. for trump, this is good news. the bad news is he's still very much at the center of the stormy daniels investigation. stormy's lawyer -- or it is an investigation? i don't know what it is. but michael avenatti was on megyn kelly today where he dropped a bombshell of as yet indeterminate size and length. >> when she sat for that interview it lasted over two hours in length. the actually interview and then the portion the public saw was 14 or 16 minutes. of actual interview time. >> but had it been news worthy, "60 minutes" would have put it on the air. >> "60 minutes" and cbs, they're a conservative network. there was a lot of information said during that interview that didn't make it into the final 60 minutes. >> conservative like highbrow, you don't mean politically conservative. >> they play it very close to the vest. for instance, she can describe the president's genitalia in great detail. that did not make it -- >> we don't need to hear that. >> jimmy: yes, we do.
11:40 pm
preferably on this show. i would be happy to facilitate that. when stormy daniels was here, i invited her toick a carrot. that invitation still stands. by the way, stormy daniels has been in probably hundreds of adult films. if she 12 years after the experience can still describe the president's genitalia in great detail, that can only mean one thing. in some way or another he has an unusual penis. ok? maybe it's bent, has spots on it. maybe it has spots on it. maybe it has a little blond toupee on top but -- [ cheers ] but what i do know is america has a right to know this. [ applause ] oh, we don't? we don't. i feel like we should. the president was very busy today. he issued a proclamation ordering the national guard to
11:41 pm
go to the border to help fight the fight against illegal immigration. this comes at a very interesting time. because in february, less than two months ago he tweeted 45-year low on illegal border crossings this year. i.c.e. and border control agents are doing a good job for our country. bhrvegs s-123 thugs being hit hard. even though border crossings are at the lowest since 1971 and everyone is doing a great job, he's sending in national guard. i'm sure the members of the national guard are thrilled that they'll now be spending their weekends in nogales standing next to a cactus, but why he's doing this, we really don't know. to try to make some sense of it it's time for a special illegal immigration edition of barista theater. here we go or hello. hello, barista. >> hi, may i take your order? >> i would like -- >> whoa, whoa, whoa. >> oh, hey. >> hold it right there, amigo. >> what is this? i just want a cup of coffee. >> sorry. we hired these guys yesterday.
11:42 pm
we had to beef up security to make sure nobody steals our coffee. >> has that been a problem? are people stealing coffee? >> well, so far in 2018 we've seen the lowest number of coffee thieves in 40 years. >> jimmy: okay, but didn't you say you just hired security guys yesterday? >> yeah. that's how fast it works. >> jimmy: just give me a regular americano. >> ok. regular h >> $14.50. >> jimmy: why so expensive? >> because we're building a brand-new state of the art coffee cart. would you like to see our prototype? >> jimmy: no. oh. i said no. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> all right. that's better. okay. what would you like? >> jimmy: this is insane. i'm not paying $15 for coffee so you can build this worthless tall counter. who do you think is going to pay for this? >> guillermo: i will pay for it. i have a a starbucks gift card.
11:43 pm
[ applause ] >> jimmy: thanks, everybody. wow, thanks. all right. take your ladder and get out of here. president trump really should send me to the border. he doesn't need the national guard. i happen to have a knack for spotting foreigners. i do it every day here in hollywood. with that said, it's time to play foreigner or not. that's right. [ applause ] that's right. sal is out on hollywood boulevard. hello, sal. >> what's happening, jimmy. >> jimmy: the way this works is that cousin sal will wave a pedestrian in off the street. someone i haven't seen before. someone we've instructed not to speak so we can't hear their accent. based solely on appearance, i'll try to guess whether this person is a foreigner or not. sal, who is our first contestant, can we say her name? no, we cannot? >> we're not going to give you that clue. >> jimmy: we know she speaks english. that's a good start.
11:44 pm
>> uh-huh. >> ok. now we really know if she speaks english. i'm just going to say right off the bat, foreigner. >> oh, all right. reveal. >> jimmy: foreigner or not? she is, a, a foreigner. >> there you go. >> yes mpl >> jimmy: there was something about you. >> australia. >> jimmy: you're from australia, what part? >> melbourne. >> jimmy: did you feel like a foreigner walking around the united states? >> i do. >> jimmy: you do, yeah. do you like it here in the united states? >> i love it. >> jimmy: what's your favorite part? >> venice beach. >> jimmy: venice beach is really the pool filter of the united states. all right. thank you for playing. and we've got a gift for you. an all-american apple pie. you're going to love it. >> come on in. >> that's a relative from benson hurst. come on in. >> jimmy: all right. and our next candidate is, wow, now right off the bat, the hair
11:45 pm
makes me think foreigner, but i also know that my producers try to trick me here and they may have pulled a guy in whose hair looks like a foreigner's hair when in reality he's just an american who works at a record store. do they still have record stores? okay, all right. >> i don't think so. >> jimmy: so let's take a look. he's got a calvin klein shirt. pan down so i can see what's going on all the way. sometimes the shoes will tip you off. and, okay, oh, yeah. no. wow, god, you know, hipsters have screwed this game up for me. [ laughter ] >> jimmy, is winterfell a different country? >> jimmy: i think it is, yeah, yeah. all right, i'm going to say that this gentleman is an american. >> all right. reveal. see that flag. >> jimmy: he's an american, that's right. not a foreigner.
11:46 pm
where are you from? >> l.a. >> jimmy: what's your name? >> sebastian. >> jimmy: you know you have foreigner hair, right? >> yes, i do feel that i have foreigner hair. >> jimmy: how do you do that hair? what happens exactly? it's all down, then you just brush it right back in the center. >> i just watch a lot of "game of thrones". >> jimmy: it is literally the opposite of a mohawk, isn't it? >> yes, it is. >> jimmy: we have an apple pie for you. thank you for playing. all right. one more. sal, give us one more. all right. this young lady, hm, hm. hi, how are you enjoying hollywood so far? okay. she's smart. which means she's probably not american. [ laughter ] all right. let's get a look at her clothing here. boy, very nondescript. very american seeming. nike shoes. oh, no. we've gone too global. i mean, this really is a
11:47 pm
difficult game to play now. i am going to say that you are not a foreigner. and you are not a foreigner. and you will never be a foreigner. where are you from? >> new jersey. >> jimmy: you're from new jersey? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what part of new jersey? >> montgomery. a really irrelevant town right next to princeton. >> ok. it's right next to princeton. >> it's foreign, i think. >> jimmy: are you here on vacation right now? >> yeah. >> jimmy: enjoy your apple pie. you can take that right home on the plane. you're good to go. thanks, sal. [ applause ] i don't want to get too carried away, but suffice it to say i'm the best. all right? [ cheers and applause ] later on the show we have music from rozzi, congressman joe kennedy is here and we'll be right back with john cena. [ applause ] [ cheers and applause ]

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, have you ever gone through the front door of his house and entered it? >> yeah. >> jimmy: ten times, then you're friend. >> in my mind. >> jimmy: anything more than three is friends. nee, he said -- and i wrote this down because he wanted me to remind you. >> you don't have a clip? he was here last night. . >> jimmy: i don't want to get you too agitated. he said to you, if you ever get agitated, i will knock your teeth so far down your throat you'll have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush them. >> why would you say those
11:55 pm
things to me? joe i didn't say any of that stuff. who did? >> jimmy: if there's any confusion as to who said it, i'm going to run right now. >> i'm not going to take that. >> jimmy: dwayne johnson said that. >> i'm not going to take that. >> jimmy: i don't blame you. >> listen up, dwayne johnson, if that is your real name. everyone knows your name is t and your last name is herock. i got some advice for you, pal. and by pal, i totally mean my best friend. i don't mean it an adversarial term. watch "blockers," then watch it again. because if you think shoving a toothbrush up my butt is a threat. you got news. there's been a funnel up there, there's been a parking code. there's more traffic in that region than a monday on the 405 in both directions. [ cheers and applause ] no, no, no, no! i'm not going to take this lying down. >> jimmy: i don't blame you. >> so let's analyze what a toothbrush and toothpaste does.
11:56 pm

[ applause ] no, no, no. and it's all mud and vegetation, pal. ok so the question i have for you, t-herock, is do you really want to smell what john cena is putting out?

11:57 pm
>> well, you know, you worked me up to a frenzy. i've been in his house so times. >> jimmy: that's what happens when you go to somebody's house that many times. that was very impressive. it was really remarkable. >> a man said he was going to -- >> jimmy: i know why you did it. you certainly had reason to do it. but the way you did it was absolutely beautiful. i feel like we should take a break. >> you see what i mean? everybody around here just says nice stuff. i feel better. i feel better! >> jimmy: we're going to take a break. i need to recover from this because i'm sweating a little bit. john cena is here. his movie is called "blockers." ♪ new innovations... ...and a tradition of excellence. luxury... ...and performance, engineered to take the crown. presenting the all-new lexus ls 500 and ls 500h.

12:21 am
were young that this is something you wanted to do, you wanted to go into public service. >> no, so public service, yeah, probably. i was a peace corps volunteer before i ended up running for office. >> jimmy: can i ask a very, very stupid question. >> please. >> jimmy: what goes on in the peace corps. i hear peace corps. i know it's not for me. but i also -- like do they come to your house and they take you to another country? >> no, you actually got to get on a plane. >> jimmy: this is voluntary, though, right? >> it is. >> it's volunteer. >> that's the volunteer part. >> jimmy: all right. >> so look, for the experiences i've had in my life, there hasn't been one that's been more impactful for me. >> jimmy: a very positive experience. >> it's a very positive experience. >> no. >> it's not for everybody. you spend -- i spent 2 1/2 years or so in the dominican republic, intermittent electricity, intermittent water. >> jimmy: do you habla espanol? >> si.

profiler, but if they were to line me up with a thousand other people and they said, which one of these men speaks spanish, you'd be the last one i pick. >> which actually has its benefits at time. you can bust people on it, which is great when it happens. i've traveled through latin america quite a bit. you do get some quizzical looks when i start speaking spanish with a heavy dominican accent. people go -- it's an organization close to my heart. a lot of them do great work. so yeah, i was thrilled to be part of it. and particularly given the challenges that we have around the world and in washington today, having the opportunity to go to a country that you haven't been in, the language you don't speak, a culture that's a bit foreign and actually throw yourself at it with everything you got and learn about it and try to serve that community is a rewarding thing. >> jimmy: i think it is. probably a great experience.
12:23 am
one that i and no one in my family will ever have. >> the interesting thing, there's no age limit on volunteers. >> jimmy: is that right? >> you can sign up today. >> jimmy: can you imagine me? [ applause ] you realize if i did that, everyone would think it was a joke. nobody would believe i went to volunteer for the peace corps. >> i'm just saying, if this doesn't work out for you. peace corps is an option. >> jimmy: is that why you're here? are you here to get rid of me? [ laughter ] when are you going to run for president? when is this happening? [ applause ] >> i came here today to hope that you would announce and i could be your vp. >> jimmy: i think it would be better the other way around. but this is a question you get asked all the time. and a lot of it is because of your name. a lot of it is because you gave the response to the state of the union address. the democratic party, did they choose you or was this a punishment? because usually that goes badly. >> that's an interesting question. and the answer is actually i think unclear. so regardless, i got asked, and i was thrilled to do it.
12:24 am
i got asked by leader pelosi about a week before the speech. >> jimmy: oh, that's all. >> yeah, she pulled me off the house floor, cleared out her office, kicked all her staff out. i thought i was in trouble. and then she asked me to do it. so i immediately obviously said yes, then walked out of her office and went, oh, my god, my career might be over. because everybody struggles with this speech. >> jimmy: yeah, bobby jindal, mario -- >> exactly. >> jimmy: whatever his name is? >> marco rubio. >> jimmy: see, look, what happened. >> the big news, the biggest takeaway for me from that experience is it has solidified for me the generosity, the compassion and the care of the american public. eye gotten tubes from chapstick from every damn corner of the -- >> jimmy: yeah, i bet. >> didn't matter what i said. >> and i'm sure you're tired of talking about the chapstick and the shiny lips and you gave a well received speech. you were very smart in doing it in front of a group of people. usually it's so sterile and
12:25 am
you're set up to fail. >> i can't do a hostage video that well. >> yeah. >> some people that can. i'm not one of those folks. i needed a live audience. >> jimmy: that was smart. do you think we'll ever return to a day -- and i'm assuming there was a day, i'm not really sure, where republicans and democrats actually work together in a meaningful way in government? >> yeah, i do. i hope so. there's more of that going on than the public sees. some of my closest friends in washington are in fact republicans. >> jimmy: who is your best friend that's republican? >> my best friend would be -- actually interesting your last guest is a guy mark mullen who is a former ultimate fighter from oklahoma. >> jimmy: wow, that's a good best friend to have because if you get beat up, he'll kick everyone's ass. >> he got me to sign on to some bill of protection of ultimate fighters in the industry, and people wonder why i signed on. you bring in all string of ultimate fighters that can kill
12:26 am
you 16 ways from tuesday. >> jimmy: you sign. you sign anything. >> yeah. >> well, maybe that's a good plan for trump because we got a lot of problems. we bring in some ultimate fighters and maybe he'll do what needs to be done. do you get your trump news the way we all do, just from -- >> tweets. >> jimmy: twitter? >> tweets. >>. >> jimmy: and then you guys -- i won't name anybody specifically but your republican colleagues do they also go like, oh, no, what is this? what has happened here? >> yes. >> jimmy: they do? >> yes. [ applause ] >> jimmy: there are a couple of areas in which you divert from your party. number one, you are against legalization of cannabis for recreational use. you oppose that. >> mm-hmm. >> jimmy: why? what's wrong with you? >> exactly. so i realize my views hon this are not exactly in line --
12:27 am
>> jimmy: you'll never win california. >> that's true. so look, i think the part of the impact of when you talk about the law is to make sure that you get the border cases right. i do have concerns about what an increased availability of legal marijuana mean for adolescents and people who struggle with addiction. >> jimmy: are you also against alcohol? because those very same things the apply. >> i don't drink, but obviously it's okay that everybody else does. i think, jimmy, it's something that if we're going to move towards legalization, we have to be thoughtful about what that means. >> jimmy: we've moved already. >> yes, we have. >> it's moot. >> yes. part of this is the federal process on this, the federal law on this structure on the federal law are completely comprehensive and what jeff sessions is doing make it worse. california is there, my home state of massachusetts is there. i acknowledge the fact that -- there you go. [ laughter ] i'm an outlier on this. i just think it's something we want to be careful and
12:28 am
deliberate about. >> jimmy: i don't want to waste all the time on pot because it really doesn't matter but i do want to ask you about healthcare. bernie sanders believes in medicare for all. you also you're against that. >> no. >> jimmy: no? >> no. so one, healthcare is a right that should be enjoyed by every single family across this country, period, full stop. and i have worked very, very hard over the course of my time in congress to make sure everybody does get access to quality, affordable healthcare. but what we've seen in the past is the details matter on this. there's a couple bills in congress that i think those details aren't exactly quite done up yet. i get concerned about what that means. when you actually try to implement. there are ways that we can go about doing this. we have essentially close to universal coverage in healthcare, ma massachusetts we've got 98% of people covered. >> we need to make sure -- look, the basis on this, i quote you on this even though i never met you before, right, needs to be this idea that every single person in this country, nobody should
12:29 am
worry about whether they can afford to save their child's life, right? period. the most powerful country in the world should be able to do that. healthcare itself, in this country, i think it boils down to a fundamental question. how are we going to treat people at their time of deepest need? it's something that people don't think about very much until you need it, but when you need it, it's the only thing you need. and we have the ability to make sure that nobody is denied because of pre-existing condition, that we can, in fact, make it accessible and affordable for everybody. i want to make sure that we do that in a way that's responsible, that's accurate and that covers everybody. and i think we can do that, but we have to be thoughtful about it. that's all i'm asking. >> jimmy: go do it. because we need you to do it. okay? [ cheers and applause ] >> ok. >>. >> jimmy: thank you very much. congressman joe kennedy. we'll be right back with rozzi. >> dicky: the jimmy kimmel live concert series is presented by
