tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC September 15, 2015 11:35pm-12:37am EDT
>> jimmy: thank you for watching. that's very nice. so those of you who are visiting us. welcome to sunny southern raining. it was raining kittens and puppies. it did rain, which is a big deal for us here. it rained most of last night and this morning which is frustrating. it always rains after the day i get a blowout. it rains so infrequently here my daughter is 14 months old. i took her outside this morning. she was like, what the hell is this? turn this off. even though there wasn't much rain our local weather teams, god bless them, they snapped into action. they are so starved for anything at all, they send reporters in news trucks out to cover this. >> let me give you a live look right now. we're at foothill and hubbard as
this morning. we've been keeping your eyes at this intersection because there's a small divot for the cars heading two to and from this direction. every so often they drive in a puddle. you're doing to see this car right here drive through it. unfortunately a lot of them are speeding. this one is going slower. this one's going faster. >> jimmy: wow, you think about how wet the underside of those cars must be. it's kind of scary. that happened by the way at 4:32 a.m. a man got out of the bed in the middle of the night to show us cars driving through a puddle. and our show made someone get out of bed to watch a man showing cars. who found that clip? jake did? where is jake? get jake. jake, you found that clip for us? >> yep. >> jimmy: were you up last night? you were up at 4:30 in the morning? >> 6:30. i got in at 6:30 and got through that part.
>> jimmy: how long have you been a tv watcher here at this show? >> 4 1/2 years. >> jimmy: wow. hold on a second. five seconds ago i was proud of you. now i'm ashamed of you. you've been watching tv for 4 1/2 years now professionally? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you went to college? >> yeah. >> jimmy: where did you go? >> indiana. >> jimmy: you got your degree there? >> yeah. >> jimmy: wow. i bet your parents never imagine imagined it would come to this. >> no, they want me to move back. >> jimmy: do you still have student loans? >> yeah. >> jimmy: oh, my god. come to my office tomorrow for career counseling. okay? >> okay. >> jimmy: that's jake. he found that clip. this is good. speaking of disappointed parents. remember the end of the super bowl last year where the seahawks decided to throw the ball instead of handing off to their star running back marshawn lynch?
that decision ended in a interception. the seahawks had fourth and one in overtime. this time they did hand the ball to marshawn lynch and he was stopped for a loss that ended the game. they lost the game. a lot of people commented on that game which apparently upset his mother. his mother went on facebook and wrote this, to the smart azz media who wrote that's why marshawn didn't get the basketball in the super bowl. how many times did russell get sacked yesterday? don't worry, i'll wait on the answer. plus, it was totally different ant the super bowl. the line was better than yesterday, no blocking, and to the offense caller who could have been fired, yes, i said it, fired. he is the worst play caller ever. the only reason he called that dumb ass place yesterday is to be able to justify the one yard that wasn't called in the super bowl. she went on and on. [ cheers and applause ] and you thought your mom was
embarrassing on facebook. she deleted the post but the damage is done. she's demand that the offensive coordinator, her son's boss, be fired, which i think means we finally found a running mate for donald trump. right? president-elect trump is in los angeles right now. last night he had a big rally at the american airline center in dallas. thousands of people came out to see him. arena staff estimated the numbers between 9,000 and 15,000 people. "usa today" put the crowd at 17,000 people. the trump campaign says there were well over a million people there to cheer him on. there really is incredible how much bragging donald trump can squeeze into a i think isle speech. reed reedited his bragging to the. even then it was way too long to put on the show so we edited that down to the very best of the best from the man who is here to tell us that he is the very best of the best. >> we're killing in iowa. we're really killing it.
we are killing it. i'm surging with women. i made $213 million. can you believe it? believe me. i was the king. i was perfect. i was the ultimate. i made a beautiful speech. wouldn't it be good to have a president who really knows how to build? like i'm so good at it. i know the greatest negotiators in the world. i have the biggest bank in the world. trump, trump, trump, trump. >> jimmy: polling very well with himself. his speeches are unbelievable. i can't get enough of him. i really can't. i love watching him speak. when you didn't do the research for the paper in the high school and restated the first paragraph for 12 pages, of course the speech got a lot of media coverage. cnn was there covering the whole thing. and they're outside the arena chatting with some of trump's most passionate supporter where's they happened upon these two. >> never before has a billionaire real estate tycoon, former reality show host, who
wants to be leader of the free wants to be leader of the free world been the headliner here. people here overwhelmingly think it's true. >> so we're going to hold this up for donald. >> this is not fired, it's hired. >> jimmy: my guess is those two are a couple. they are not a couple. the gentleman in the cowboy hat was there by himself. he was about on every news channel there to cover this. >> a lot of people here tonight, fan supporter, curiosity seekers. they started lining up hours before the door opened. some made up their minds they like trump. others are here to learn more about a candidate they are considering. >> he speaks to us as americans because it's not politics as usual anymore. this is politics as unusual. >> jimmy: right. very unusual. so for those of you who don't know, that man is our friend jake byrd who then went into the rally and managed to score a prime seat right behind donald trump.
>> do you know what my name is? they don't know what my name is either. by the way, can you see in the back? they have the best view. can you see it's really my hair? >> jimmy: that's jake byrd. jake caused quite a stir on twitter last night. there were hundreds of comments on it. some of them were, is anyone else watching trump right now in dallas? the man behind him in the drunk cowboy hat is cracking me up. i want him to turn around behind him and announce him as vp candidate. there was another one. what intrepid reporter will score the interview with that over s.e.a.l. rouseael zealous hat. jake byrd filed a special report for us from the rally in dallas. i really recommend, i really think, i really recommend that

this is jake when they announced paris hilton was going to jail. >> he ruled that he was remanding ms. hilton to the sheriff's custody to serve the remainder of her sentence at the century regional detention center. >> no! no, no, no, no, no. >> jimmy: he took that pretty hard. this one -- this was jake years ago at the michael jackson trial. >> today's result, 5 1/2 weeks after the tragic death of michael jackson, eliminates uncertainty and offers stability to the lives of these children. >> jimmy: and now, of course, simpson. >> we expect mr. simpson to be processed and released -- >> yes! >> -- very quickly. >> jimmy: as fate would have it who would have guessed jake is a big fan of donald trump's. we sent a camera crew to follow him to dallas where his enthusiasm was nothing short of
infectious. >> my relationship with donald trump would be is almost a relationship with jesus christ. the whole thing was what i'm saying is here, is that -- >> same, same. >> the same. >> vote obama back in for another four years, we'll all be speaking muslim. #nothank youyou. >> build that wall like he's promised he's going to do, that's the best thing for this country. basically, we shouldn't have to but laws are made for people to break the law. >> he doesn't hate hispanics. >> no. >> right here. part of the deal. he talks about why he has such a thing with them. >> yes. >> may 1982. ivana and i wanted to try out that hot new mexican place, carlos and charlie's. i tried a strawberry margarita for the first time and then had two more. it was out of the parking lot later on i started to feel
nauseated and began feeling up the strawberry margaritas. the red color made me think i was hemorrhaging and started screaming, oh, my god, i'm dying, i'm dying. silly, donald, she said, it's just the strawberry margaritas. >> there you go. >> he's not against mexicans. >> no, strawberry margaritas. >> that's where people are misunderstood. it's nothing about people being illegal. >> it's not about that at all. >> that's right. exactly. >> we are ready for a change. >> and we're dtf. >> and we are -- that's right, we are donald trump forever. >> dtf. dfp dtf, dtf. look at this, my trump stamp. >> not a trump stamp. he's got a trump stamp. >> do you want one? >> sure, i do. >> look at this. >> mwah.
hot stuff. >> put it right there. >> that's our guy. that's our guy right there. usa, usa. >> i haven't heard what his actual policy is going to be but if it can be fixed, he can fix it. >> donald trump, she knows this. he's friends with dennis rodman. dennis rodman is friends with kim jung un bep need to put a bomb in dennis rodman. >> i don't know if that needed to be addressed at that moment with megyn kelly, but it happened and so i think he handled it all right. you know? i think people went over the top with it. >> he says the things that people are afraid to say, like megyn kelly gets super drunk when she's making her lady kool-aid. >> no comment. >> good leader because he tells it like it is and he's honest.
>> he's also a great businessman and made possibly the greatest fragrance ever known. have you smelled trump? >> no. >> check this. >> i'm not drinking that. >> it's so bitter. trump, trump. go i aahead and trump. trump. >> and prepared remarks, no teleprompter. and here he goes. >> wow. wow. amazing. can you people see me up there? don't fill up the upper rings,

invokana reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose weight. invokana can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis. stop taking and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms such as rash, swelling, or difficulty breathing or swallowing. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems.
using invokana with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana . imagine loving your numbers. there's only one invokana . ask your doctor about it by name. if unsightly tartar buildup is giving your dog bad breath... try doggie dentures. now available in extra white! umm, you're kidding right? just give me dentastix. the dog treat that's clinically proven to reduce tartar buildup. right now, at&t is giving you 50 percent more data. that's 15 gigs of data for the price of 10. and get 300 dollars credit for every line you switch to at&t. you've never had a burger made like applebee's genuine handcrafted freshly ground seared flavor bombed piled high original one-of-a-kind all-in burgers
>> jimmy: tomorrow night, our next guest will "man the grill" as moderator of the republican debate on cnn. you know from the show the lead with jake tapper. please welcome jake tapper. [ applause ] >> jimmy: how are you doing? >> immigrate'm great. >> jimmy: is this for me? >> this is a little gift. i'm very, very excited about your little baby girl. >> jimmy: thank you very much. >> i was thinking about this
when you were on the road, in austin, i know i miss my kids terribly. >> jimmy: she came with me. she didn't miss me that much. yeah. she's a baby. you can't really leave her at the house. >> not that trip. on other trips and you miss her when you're aware from her. >> jimmy: theoretically, yes. >> we got her a jimmy doll. >> jimmy: oh. >> when you're away. >> jimmy: that's nice. >> i have known you for a few permutations. it's adjustable in case you change your look again. the beard comes and goes. >> jimmy: that looks great. >> when i first met jimmy there was a little bit more of him. so if you put the weight back on, let's put this sideways. >> jimmy: which i will. >> there you go. >> jimmy: oh, how about that? oh. >> it works for many permutations of jimmy. >> jimmy: look, it's anatomically correct.
well, thank you. my daughter will cherish this as i am in the dream house humping barbie. so this debate is now, according to the cnn countdown clock, like less than 24 hours away. are you ready? >> i think we're good. i think we're good. my team and i have been really working hard and coming up with questions that i think are going to be tough and really pit the candidates against each other. >> jimmy: is that the key to a question that you want it to elicit some kind of response between them? >> yeah, i think so. there are interview questions and we've been soliciting all sorts of questions from all sorts of people. i've been talking to a lot of people who worked in the reagan administration, we've been talking to a lot of politicos, people have been submitting questions from social media. but what i really am looking for, what we and the team are looking for is remember in the first debate when chris christie and rand paul were really going at it on surveillance? and they were really both very passionate about an issue that's very important. i saw that and i'm like that's what i want. like a lot of those moments where i'm not really playing but
they're really debating the issues that are important. >> jimmy: this is the same sort of thing that chris harrison looks for on the "after the final rose." >> always an inspiration. always an inspiration, yeah. >> jimmy: okay. so you pretty much know what questions you're going to ask. >> yes. >> jimmy: you go in there. this is a hard job because anything you say, if you try to keep things on track, if you have to scold somebody, certain segment of the population gets angry at you. >> yeah. >> jimmy: how do you handle that? are you concerned about that? do you try to actively avoid that? >> we've been doing a lot of mock debates. >> jimmy: you have? >> yeah. and my team has been throwing a lot of shade at me. >> jimmy: who plays donald trump in these mock debates? >> no one you know. >> jimmy: chewbacca out of hollywood boulevard? >> no. no. very smart and charming gentleman we have working at cnn. >> jimmy: i see. >> but it's not just him. i mean, there are anybody could really come -- look, some people are going to will a good night tonight night and some people are not going to have a good night.
they're going to complain about it and probably hold it against the moderator or cnn or whoever. and that's just part of the -- >> jimmy: you will have at least 20 million people watching this thing tomorrow, maybe 30. who knows, right? you're going to have millions and millions of we oh. >> please don't set expectations that high. you're writing the small short of kimmel expectations. >> jimmy: the last one was 24 or something. >> yeah. >> jimmy: donald trump has roasted pretty much every single one of those people and now he has to stand in a room with him which he doesn't seem to care about. he seems to be somewhat indestructible. >> he defies the laws of gravity in politics. >> jimmy: every time he does something -- >> every time he does something, pundits in washington goes, that's it, he's sunk. he goes up five points in the polls. if you look at the polls he hasn't necessarily hit a ceiling yet. 32% in the last poll. oh, he goes after john mccain's war record. he takes on the beloved megyn kelly. doesn't matter.
keep going up and up and up. i think people are responding to what they perceive his authenticity, outsidedness and candor. >> jimmy: he is very candid. his secret probably is that he actually answers -- just one of the frustrating things about watching an interview with the politicians is they never really want to answer the question the way you ask them. >> it's the worst. i know this from my day job, and i'm worried about it for tomorrow night a little bit, we're going to be giving these candidates an opportunity to really go at each other on leadership. and you know some of them are going to say, you know, they're going to pivot immediately to their seven-point plan for reforming the department of housing and urban development and that's -- i think voters eyes glaze over. i think that's one of the reasons why people listen to trump is at least entertains the question. he might call it stupid but he entertains the question. >> jimmy: we want to see wrestling. we want to see people fighting. would you consider it amazing
success if one candidate were to punch another candidate tomorrow night? yes? >> no. >> jimmy: no. >> no, i would not. but i would love them to really fight about these issues because this is -- they're not running for prom king. this is about, you know, who is going to be controlling the nuclear weapons. >> jimmy: terrifying. don't say that. >> the thing is having it at the reagan library and right in the hangar hangar. i don't know how many of you have been. >> jimmy: none of them. >> but it's packed with -- it's packed with history. there's a piece of the berlin wall. there is reagan's air force one. this man was very, very conversations sequential and >> jimmy: when donald trump sees excited. maybe he will use that as the cornerstone of the wall he's planning to build. >> pretty happy. >> jimmy: people kind of -- there's a debate as to whether
cnn and fox and msnbc news channels, whether they're covering donald trump is making donald -- i wonder if it's fueling itself in a way. you have to cover him because he's the biggest story but he's also the biggest story because you're covering him. >> there is a chicken and egg thing there. i have read media studies about if covering him, even if we're doing so in a critical and fairway, if that fuels it. look, he's the front-runner. that's the bottom line. he is the front-runner. and he says what he says. the voters in polls say that they like it. so we keep covering him. if hillary clinton did -- were willing to do as many interviews as donald trump we would be covering her as much, as well. >> jimmy: but she's boring. let's be honest. donald trump is not. yes? i can read your mind. >> i would never say that. >> jimmy: never say that. you don't have to. your face says it all. well, it's very good to see you. i wish you the best tomorrow. i can't wait to see it. tomorrow night the republican candidates debate live on cnn, 8:00 eastern.
presented by samsung. my grandfather angel martinez vi came over from puerto rico, and his thing was the american dream. he taught us that health is your greatest asset. and that's why 45 years ago, he chose ghi which is now emblemhealth. ghi was the first to cover preventative care for new york kids. today with my business, i'm passing on the family tradition of hard work and good health to angel ix. we're talking generations of healthy, brooklyn "angels." emblemhealth: what care feels like...in the neighborhood.
>> jimmy: i'd like to thank john stamos, jake tapper, and apologize to matt damon. we ran out of time for him.
