11:35 pm
for joining us. jimmy kimmel live, carry washington. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- kerry washington. alicia keys. and "this week in unnecessary censorship." ♪ and now, hold on, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hello, welcome to the show. i'm jimmy, i'm the host. thanks to all of you for coming. that's very nice. i'm glad you're here. how many of you in our studio audience tonight are visiting us from the east coast? this is a good time for me to tell your families, these people are never coming back. 73 degrees and sunny here in
11:36 pm
l.a. today. [ cheers and applause ] don't rub it in, because there's a massive winter storm, winter storm nico is blanketing the northeast, as if a warm comforter is being gently placed over the region. it's not. thousands of flights have been canceled. schools are closed. in mid town manhattan, an ice princess is trapped in a tower, her name is melania. [ laughter and applause ] but i will say, it can be uncomfortable, it can be problematic. my grandmother always used to say, when life hands you snow, make snow lemonade. just don't drink it because it's pee. this is good. this is a live report from fox 29 in philadelphia, which should give you a sense of how the cold affects public transportation and the drivers who keep the public transported. >> we've been waiting for a bus to come for these walmart workers. now wait a second.
11:37 pm
how's driving a bus in this weather today? >> coming up here was extremely bad, but going down the road is much better. hey, y'all better pay! i don't care if it's cold out there, y'all better pay! [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: wow. that is some bus driver. that's who trump needs to get to be white house press secretary, right? [ laughter ] winter storm nico means it's a terrible time for new york fashion week. fashion week started today. half the models got blown not -- skno the hudson river. usually fashion week isn't for me, but this year, i saw a couple of looks that are so me it almost hurts. i mean, that's me, this is me, this one is so me, it might as well be named for me. it's the perfect outfit for a job interview or just going bowling with the guys.
11:38 pm
seriously, though, who would wear any of that? besides the three men who are being paid to wear that on the runway, who would wear it? >> jimmy, i would. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: talking about regular people. that's a great -- fashion is his passion. you look like a member of the cobra kai. you look like the chupa cobra kai. anyway, the big news tonight, just a little while ago, the ninth circuit court of appeals weighed in on donald trump's travel ban. trump, as you know, issued an executive order, banning refugees and visitors from seven countries from entering the united states. but a judge in washington suspended that ban. so the government appealed. tonight the appeals court upheld the judge's ruling. the decision was unanimous. that's not counting all the judges who voted illegally. [ laughter ] but the ban at least for now is
11:39 pm
not in effect, and donald trump is pounding the wall of the oval office with his tiny little fists. [ cheers and applause ] it's not dead yet. it could go to the supreme court or a district court, or will he take it to "the people's court"? a tv president can do that. of course trump tweeted almost immediately and in all caps. he wrote, see you in court. the security of our nation is at stake. so the highly nuanced judicial debate continues. donald trump can't keep immigrants from entering this country. he can't even get melania to leave new york. [ laughter and applause ] and you know, trump was very critical of the judge who initially put the kabosh on the ban. he called him a so-called judge and said if anything bad happened, blame him. this did not sit well with trump's pick for the supreme court. according to senator richard
11:40 pm
blumenthal, who met with neil gorsuch, the supreme court nominee. gorsuch said he thinks trump's attack on the judge were disheartening and demoralizing. so then trump lashed out not at gorsuch, but instead at senator blumenthal. the president tweeted chris cuomo in his interview with senator blumenthal never asked him about his long-term lie, about his brave service in vietnam. fake news. he yells "fake news" every time he gets mad. you remember when the hulk would say "hulk smash" when he got mad? chris cuomo did ask him about that. he asked him about the fact that back in 2010, "the new york times," which is also fake news, revealed that senator blumenthal never went to vietnam, but he led people to believe he did. whereas donald trump during the war served towards bravely fighting bone spurs in his foot at the wharton school of finance, but -- [ laughter and applause ]
11:41 pm
donald trump, it's so crazy what he gets involved in, because trump attacking blumenthal for not serving in vietnam is like milli attacking vanilli for lip-syncing. then trump went after a real war hero. he tweeted, saying, mccain has been losing so long he doesn't know how to win anymore. i guess they were teammates during white house pictionary. it didn't go well. mccain should be careful. the last time he attacked donald trump, he wound up being president. trump attacked the media, a reporter, and two senators all before breakfast today. he's getting a lot done, you could say that. and the star of the alternative facts of life, kellyanne conway is at it again. [ laughter and applause ] she was on the show "fox & friends" this morning. not only did she explain about nordstrom dropping ivanka trump's clothing line, but used her position to give ivanka a rare and potentially illegal product plug. >> i do find it ironic, that you have executives all over the
11:42 pm
internet bragging about what they've done to her and her line and yet, they're using the most prominent woman in donald trump's -- most prominent -- she's his daughter, and they're using her, who's been a champion for women in power, and women in the workplace, to get to him. i think people can see through that. go buy ivanka's stuff, is what i would tell you. i hate shopping and i'm going to get some myself today. it's a wonderful line. i own some of it. i'm going to give a free commercial. go buy it today, you can find it online. >> jimmy: she's going to have a hell of a post white house career on qvc or the home shopping network. [ laughter and applause ] this could be a problem for kellyanne, it may be a federal ethics violation and sean spicer had to answer questions about it today. he said she was counselled on the subject. a statement that we slowed down to half speed for another
11:43 pm
edition of "drunk sean spicer." >> she's been counselled on -- on that subject, and -- that's it. ♪ [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: laid his head down on the podium and went to sleep. in singapore, kentucky fried chicken, kfc, is rolling out a new creation. behold the chizza. it's pizza with a crust made out of fried chicken. fried chicken topped with chicken, ham, pineapple chunks. mozzarella, pizza sauce, and cheese sauce. it's easy to make, first, you get a chicken to have sex with a pizza. i'm not sure why this is only available in singapore. it's probably -- put that up again. this has got to be the most american food item i've ever seen in my life. when something like this comes out, either you're one of the people who asks, who the hell eats that stuff? or you go, why the hell aren't i
11:44 pm
already eating this stuff? currently there are no plans to bring it to north america, which is, i think that's what we elected donald trump for, isn't it? [ cheers and applause ] we didn't do this so fried chicken pizza could be made in singapore. oh, he just tweeted. let's see what he -- obama lets china get chizza first. this is what i'm saying. disgrace! [ laughter ] it's thursday night, time to bleep and blur the big tv moments of the week, whether they need it or not. it's "this week in unnecessary censorship." [ cheers and applause ] >> i do [ bleep ]. >> why? >> well, i [ bleep ] a lot of people. >> it was government control that [ bleep ] this all up. and bernie and the democrats' solution is more [ bleep ], more [ bleep ]. >> new england, we love you. you've been with us all year.
11:45 pm
we're bringing this [ bleep ] home. >> who doesn't like a big [ bleep ] here? anyone? >> imagine watching yourself on tv and have your mom watch it. >> you know, i don't make a habit of [ bleep ] strangers, but maybe after today, that might change. have you ever thrown [ bleep ]? >> yeah, you have. >> also ufc polly holm is here. >> he's gonna [ bleep ] my butt. >> caitlin, this would be right up your alley. who would you want a candle to smell like? >> wet [ bleep ], like my [ bleep ]. >> this is awesome, i'm relaxed, but it's like sucking on my dad's old [ bleep ]. >> you get to a point where [ bleep ] your father becomes awkward. >> we want [ bleep ]. we want [ bleep ]! we want [ bleep ]! we want [ bleep ]! yeah! >> jimmy: we're going to take a break. when we come back, we have george clooney has some big

[ applause ] which is nice. my guess is that he's had twins before, but this time it's different. george and his wife amal are expecting two babies. what a year this is for twins. first beyonce and jay-z, now the clooneys.
11:51 pm
[ applause ] my wife and i are only having one kid. i feel like we're losers now. so anyway, congratulations to george and amal, and to us, the human race. on a less wholesome note, the new 50 shades movie, "50 shades darker" opened tonight. it will be going head to head this weekend with the lego batman movie, and obviously these are two very different films, targeting very different audiences, they do have some themes in common. to prove that, we took the video and lego batman and the audio from "50 shades," and we put them together and we made this. >> have dinner with me. >> okay, fine, i will have dinner with you, but we are only talking and that is it. >> what do you want, anastasia? >> no rules, no punishments, and no more secrets. >> i don't know whether to worship at your feet or spank you. >> uh-oh.
11:52 pm
oh, no, no, no. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: never look at legos the same again. valentine's day is on tuesday. americans are expected to spend, this is unbelievable, $2 billion on flowers this valen- -- i have a new rule. for social media this year. if you post a pictures of flowers that came to your office, thereby making every other woman who didn't get them feel bad, and every other guy who didn't send them look bad, you don't get flowers next year. you're on probation. okay? [ cheers and applause ] i know valentine's day is problematic for a lot of men, but i was told by my wife, it's annoying for women too. in theory it's a mutual holiday where there's supposed to be some exchange of gifts, but women have no idea what they're supposed to get us. men, you know, you have to get a card, fill it out on the steering wheel on your way home,
11:53 pm
flowers obviously, chocolate, and if you're weird, maybe a teddy bear. besides sex, what do you give a man for valentine's day? you can't get a guy -- most guys don't want jewelry. it's hard. so this afternoon, we went around our office, we asked the men who work here, what they got for valentine's day last year. and here's how that went. ♪ >> my wife got me a -- >> uh -- >> um -- >> aah -- uh -- >> i think my wife got me a card. >> uh, a hug? >> i got pretty much nothing. a belated gift. i owe you a dinner. >> i think it was nothing.
11:54 pm
come to think of it, i don't think she got me anything the year before that either. so that bodes well for us. >> nothing. nothing at all. yeah, nothing. >> she got me this really beautiful pen that is something that i wanted -- no, she didn't get me anything. >> my wife didn't give me anything. but my mom got me a box of candy. is that weird? every year my mom gets me candy on valentine's day. that's weird. >> yeah, i don't -- no, maybe i didn't get anything. no, i'm sure i got something. uh, this is not good, probably. whatever it was, it was amazing, and i loved it and have it somewhere. i'm sorry, sarah. >> hey, what did you get me for valentine's day last year? >> mmm, i have no idea. [ laughter ]
11:55 pm
>> if you had to guess, what do you think you got me? >> uh, nothing? >> sounds about right. >> why are you asking? >> love you, bye, you're on tv. >> i don't think i got anything for valentine last year. the only thing i got, should i be honest? the only thing i got, it was sex. that's the best present a man can have. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: you're gonna get it again tonight, if you wear that home. all right, thanks, everyone. tonight on the show, alicia keys is here. and we'll be right back with kerry washington. so stick around. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> dicky: portions of

12:05 am
because they're all actors. >> yeah, they gotta learn -- >> jimmy: but you guys are doing it? >> we're like, figure it out, wardrobe! i need another cape. when you're wondering why tony is holding prada bags, it's because he had cake. >> jimmy: he hasn't gone through a change or something? >> no. >> jimmy: this is a head shot from -- what year would you guess this was from? >> i don't know. [ cheers and applause ] i'm pretty sure i was in high school. >> jimmy: wow. do you remember going and having this photograph taken? >> vaguely. vaguely. i will tell you, the head shot that i remember taking the most was more recent than that one. i went to get my head shots done and i was super excited. >> jimmy: the overalls are beautiful. >> i had saved a lot of money. i got up early, got my hair and makeup done. it was a super professional person, but i also had my puppy, she was super young, and she upstaged me. i waited two hours, because he took portraits of my dog. >> jimmy: he fell in love with
12:06 am
your dog? >> for hours. this is her head shot. she got head shots. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: that's funny. >> she's so beautiful. >> jimmy: did you list her special skills on the back? >> i haven't had to, every time i go somewhere with her, she's been in american vogue, home & garden. every time, they're like, can we have josie? i don't take her anywhere anymore, because i'm afraid she's going to end up on the cover instead of me. >> jimmy: it slows you down. at what point in your career do you stop having head shots taken? is that something you think about? or you just go back and realize, like, oh, i don't do that anymore? >> well, you still have to do them, but now you do them for, like, you're winning an award and they need a head shot for the program. >> jimmy: is that technically a head shot? i guess it is. >> but it doesn't have my resume stapled on the back anymore. >> jimmy: with a bunch of lies about skills that you have. >> that then they hire you and you're like, i don't really know how to ride a horse. i don't really snowboard, what am i going to do?
12:07 am

trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea, constipation and vomiting. trintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your healthcare professional if trintellix could make a difference for you.

>> well, they both have a lot of spin. they're both full of a lot of spin. >> jimmy: both very creative. is there a possibility that you'll incorporate the events that are going on, or does the time frame from when it takes to write the show to producing the show, does that prevent that from happening? >> i think so. we shot all these episodes way before the real election, so it's kind of tragic and crazy that our writers were able to be psychic about some of the stuff that's happening, in terms of this brilliant woman losing on our show, although she gets it back. so maybe they're psychic about that. >> jimmy: oop. >> yeah, but i don't know, i remember a time when "scandal" was outrageous. and now it's a different situation. >> jimmy: it's a very sober account of the white house in a way. >> it is. >> jimmy: do the writers take aspects of your personal life and incorporate them into the show? >> you know, in season one, i thought there were cameras in my apartment, not because i was having an affair, but because i

city was really beat up. we were going through a lot. >> jimmy: you lost a bunch of musical equipment that night, i think. >> obviously people lost their homes, so it was way more than that. but it was, you know, it was a difficult time. >> jimmy: your son egypt was a toddler at that time. how old is he now? >> he's 6. >> jimmy: he's 6 years old now.

12:25 am
4. i said, hmm, you're hearing something, i had him go to the piano. his daddy took him to the studio, he programmed the drums, he did what he heard. kendrick met him earlier at the super bowl last year and said how much he was connected to him. he said, if you send me something, i'll try to use it. and he honored it. >> jimmy: wow, my daughter is working on -- my daughter is 2 1/2, but she's got a song, it's called "five little monkeys jumping on the bed." >> i love that song. who doesn't love that song? >> jimmy: let's look at this video, because this is unbelievable. how old is he in this video? >> he's 5. 5 years old. >> jimmy: kindergarten age, coming up with music for kendrick lamar. and how old is your younger son? >> he's vibing. you see that vibe?

12:27 am
start to promote it. and then that takes a year. and then you go on tour for like two years. and then you come back and that was already three years, if you did your math. >> jimmy: right. >> then you come back and you're like, i got to make some more music, and it takes like eight months and then boom, it's four years, so it's not really -- >> jimmy: so let me rephrase it, this is your first album in four months. [ laughter and applause ] you need to slow it down. >> there you go. >> jimmy: track on this album. it's called "kill your mama." your son didn't help to produce that one, did he? >> no, he would never think that. but "kill your mama" is about how we're killing mother earth. that's what it's about. so when you hear the metaphor, it's really powerful. >> jimmy: i was listening to it today, you guys start talking about cocoa butter in the middle of the album.
12:28 am
>> i heard you have an affinity to cocoa butter. >> jimmy: i'm a recent convert to cocoa butter. d.j. khalid gave me a lot of cocoa butter. >> like a box? >> jimmy: a crate of cocoa butter. and i was like, what the hell, i put it on, and now every day i smell like milk duds. it's wonderful. i love it. >> i'm very proud of you for knowing and using cocoa butter. >> jimmy: i didn't even know it was a real thing. until -- i remembered it from songs like salt n pepa rapping about it. but cocoa butter, it's like cocoa. it's like being a chocolate bar. >> like a bean. you're like a little bean when you use it. >> jimmy: do you use a lot of cocoa butter yourself? >> i'm not an avid cocoa butter user, but i do enjoy it. and they also have lip balm, which is very good. >> jimmy: you support my use of cocoa butter, though? >> i do. and i like that you gravitated to my -- >> jimmy: i did. >> -- my skit about cocoa
12:29 am
butter, because one of the things that i did with the album is really creative, like these interstitial, these descriptions of what was coming ahead with the song, and really gave a deeper meaning than what the songs are talking about. this whole thing is a body of work. so cocoa butter leads into a song called "a girl can't be herself," which talks about how women are held to high standards of what beauty should be. >> jimmy: right. >> so it talks about how these guys are saying this girl and that's how it brings up the cocoa butter. >> jimmy: i was talking to some of the guys in my office like two weeks ago about you. i think i was looking at this album cover and talking about how you don't wear makeup anymore. if you have a face like this, you don't need to wear makeup ever. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's not true! i don't like that either. >> jimmy: you don't like that? what about cocoa butter, is that okay? >> you're good on the cocoa butter. look, you know how when you don't want to talk to somebody, you're like. no, i don't feel like that's the -- i feel like all women are
