tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC September 25, 2015 11:35pm-12:37am EDT
>> jimmy: i'm jimmy, i'm the he's of the show. thank you for watching. that's very nice. so those of you who are visiting us, welcome to sunny southern california where it's been raining. i wouldn't say it's raining cats. 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.
in sylmar this morning. we've been keeping your eyes at this intersection because there's a small divot for the cars heading 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. you're going to see -- >> jimmy: see that? wow. underside of those cars must be, 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 we at or 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. [ cheers and applause ] >> 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? >> i went to indiana. >> jimmy: you got your degree there? >> yeah. >> jimmy: wow. i bet your parents never imagined it would come to this. >> no, they want me to move back. >> jimmy: do you still have student loans? >> yeah. >> jimmy: oh, you do. oh my god. you know what? come to my office tomorrow for career counseling. okay? >> okay. >> jimmy: that's jake. he found that clip. [ cheers and applause ] 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. patriots wound up winning the game. on sunday the seahawks had a fourth and 1 in overtime. this time they did hand the ball stopped for a loss that ended the game. they lost the game. a lot of people commented on that situation which apparently upset marshawn lynch's mother. his mother went on facebook and wrote this, to the smartass media who wrote that's why marshawn didn't get the ball 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 at the super bowl. the line was better than yesterday, no blocking, and to the offense caller who could fired. he is the worst play caller ever. the only reason he called that dumb-ass play yesterday is to be able to justify the one yard 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. show demanding that the offensive coordinator, her son's boss, be fired. which i think means we finally trump. president-elect trump is in los angeles right now. last night he had a big rally at the american airline center in dallas. see him. arena staff estimated the numbers between 9,000 and 15,000 people. "usa today" put the crowd at 17,000 people. were well over a million people there to cheer him on. it really is incredible how much bragging donald trump can squeeze into a single speech. we edited his bragging. even when we edited it down to just the bragging it was way too long to put on the show. we edited that down to the very best of the best from the man who's 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. i thought it was wonderful. 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. [ cheers and applause ] his speeches are unbelievable. i can't get enough of him. i really can't. i love watching him speak. they're starting to like -- when you didn't do the research for the paper in the high school and then you just 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 supporters where 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
world been the headliner here. people here overwhelmingly think it's good. >> so we're going to hold this up for donald. >> this is not fired, he'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 that showed up to cover this. >> a lot of people here tonight, fans, supporters, 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 drunk redneck behind him in the straw cowboy hat is cracking me up. all i really want from this trump speech is for him to turn around and point at the cowboy behind him and announce him as vp candidate. there was another one. what intrepid reporter will score the interview with that overzealous cowboy hat guy behind trump? you know it would be. tv gold. i happen to agree, it would be and it will be. not only is jake byrd in the building with us tonight, he filed a special report from the rally in dallas. i really recommend, i really think, i really recommend that you come back for that after the
introducing the lexus is 200 turbo and is 300 awd v6. the is line has never been... more powerful. once driven, there's no going back. this is iphone 6s. not much has changed. except... it responds to the pressure of your finger. so you can peek into stuff. and pop stuff open. which changes how you play a song. read a text.
read an email. read the news. wait, you read the news? kid: yep of course you do. now you can change apps like this. pay at more places like this. and the new color looks like this... it's rose gold, it's awesome. and siri is more helpful than ever. bill hader: hey siri, show me photos of tortellini. siri: here are some images of tortellini... maybe get take out? the camera shoots 4k video now, which changes how your movies look. nice... even selfies have changed. now your screen is the flash. that's gonna get, like, a million likes. selena gomez: thanks. actually,photos themselves have changed. they move now. you just touch them. so yeah, that's what's changed. forget about the cowboy walk because of a saggy diaper it's time to dance freely thanks to new pampers cruisers the first and only diaper that helps distribute wetness evenly
so it stays drier and doesn't sag like other diapers so wiggle it jiggle it and do, whatever that is, in new pampers cruisers love, sleep and play. pampers layover. 24 hours. hello, reykjavik. oh, so that's how you spell it. what are you looking at? oh, cool. hungry. fish, anyone? hello, seventh waterfall of the day. hello, duck boat. hello, sheep? oh right! itchy icelandic sweaters and no foreign transaction fees. sweet. one last look. ahh. triple points. and we're off. what's next? wherever the journey takes you, carry american express gold. it's more than a card.
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back to the show. john stamos and jake tapper and cold war kids will be here. first, as i was saying, donald trump had a big rally in dallas last night. a lot of people were there to cheer him on. one of the fans got a lot of attention on social media. an enthusiastic gentleman in a cowboy hat who happens to be our friend jake byrd. we've known jake for many, many years. he's very passionate, and he likes to put that passion on display when there are cameras around. 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. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] 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, showing his support for o.j. 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
>> 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. #nothankyou. >> 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 in the parking lot later on i started to feel nauseated and began throwing up the strawberry margaritas.
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. >> yes, exactly. that's where people are getting misunderstood. he's not against mexicans, he's not against anyone that's illegal. >> just strawberry margaritas. >> that's right, exactly. >> it's nothing about that at all. >> right, exactly. >> we are ready for a change. >> and we're dtf. >> and we are -- that's right, we are donald trump forever. >> dtf. dtf, 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. >> oh, no! >> hot stuff!
>> 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. >> let me explain what donald trump can do. donald trump -- she knows this. he's friends with dennis rodman. dennis rodman is friends with kim jong-un. do we have to spell it out for you people? we 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. >> make a 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.
>> no. >> check this. >> i'm not drinking that. >> it's so bitter. trump, trump. go ahead and trump. trump. [ cheers and applause ] >> and prepared remarks, no teleprompter. and here he goes. >> wow. wow. amazing. can you people see me up there? stupid. rings, it's not fair. i appreciate it. >> you're great, donald! >> now, if you like the media,
and if you don't, give them a [ audience booing ] >> boo! >> i had a feeling. >> yeah! >> by the way, can you see in the back, they have the best view. can you see it's really my hair? >> yeah! yeah! real hair! >> well, that's the other thing. i get killed on this. i had a article recently, with me it's -- it's a whole big deal. it's a whole big deal. and you know i'm self funding my campaign. i'm not taking all of this blood money. i'm surging with women. can you believe that? >> yeah! yeah! sex sells, baby! sex sells! >> hillary's not surging. i tell you that. they're not saying that. >> oh ho ho! no! >> thank you.

bachelorette 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 the moderator or cnn or whoever. and that's just part of the -- >> jimmy: you will have at least 20 million people watching this
who knows, right? you're going to have millions and millions of people watching -- >> 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: now it's even more interesting. 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, his outsiderness,
and his 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 issues and on style and 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. 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. i don't know how many of you have been to the reagan library. >> jimmy: none of them. [ laughter ] >> 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 consequential and this is what's on the line. >> jimmy: when donald trump sees that on the wall he will get 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 their covering donald trump is making -- 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 fair way, if that rules 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. >> jimmy: never say that. you don't have to. your face says it all. [ laughter ] well, it's very good to see you. i wish you the best tomorrow. i can't wait to see it. i really can't. tomorrow night the republican candidates debate live on cnn, 8:00 eastern. jake tapper is the moderator. thank you, jake. we'll be right back with cold
presented by samsung. >> jimmy: i'd like to thank john stamos, jake tapper, and apologize to matt damon. we ran out of time for him. "nightline" is next, but first, this is the deluxe edition of "hold my home," here with the song "first," cold war kids!
