[ cheers and applause ] >> steve: sexy. come on. wow. >> jimmy: welcome, welcome again. i'm your host, jimmy fallon. here's what people are talking about. the latest on president obama's trip to cuba. i saw that over the weekend he and his family were photographed on a walking tour of havana in the pouring rain. which means the president's like everyone's dad on vacation. if he paid for the nonrefundable tour, you're going to go on that nonrefundable tour. [ cheers ] "get your ponchos. we're going to take that tour." obama also spoke from cuba yesterday and said that u.s. airlines will start making commercial flights to cuba this year. but first obama said he wants to see a greater respect for human rights. not in cuba. at laguardia. [ laughter and applause ] animals running around. and get this, obama and cuban president rau castro also gave
their first press conference together yesterday. castro actually tried to raise obama's arm in triumph when they were finished. but -- i don't know if you saw this. obama didn't seem that into it. [ light laughter ] keep your eye on obama's hand when castro tries to raise it into the air. watch this. >> we have concluded. thank you for your participation. [ laughter ] >> steve: what? >> jimmy: what? i mean, what? can we see that again?

[ light laughter ] >> jimmy: hey, this is cool, carnival cruise just got approval from the government to launch voyages from the u.s. to cuba starting in may. yeah, in fact, carnival has even come up with a few slogans
to get people excited for a a cruise to cuba. first, there's "carnival cruise -- we've had an embargo on fun for the last ten years." [ laughter and applause ] then there's, "see the world's most notorious military prison from the world's most notorious diarrhea prison."

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> steve: bernie. >> jimmy: "great party, bernie!" [ light laughter ] let's check in on the election here. in an interview with cnn last night, ted cruz was asked about being donald trump's vice president and said, quote, "i have zero interest whatsoever." what is also what cruz's friends say when he invites them to dinner. [ laughter and applause ] "you could have just said no. that's rude."
former arizona governor jan brewer spoke at a rally for donald trump ahead of today's primary in utah, and she seemed to have missed one of trump's key talking points. take a look at this. >> he's going to grow jobs and he is going to look out for the small business. he's going to restructure the tax structure, and not only that, he is gonna build the fence.

[ laughter ] [ applause ] this is kind of crazy here. i read about a doctor who is spending a year in antarctica to study the effects of living in isolation. when asked how it's going, he was like, "who said that?
