travis scott and the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 708, illinois! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, my goodness! [ cheers and applause ] i feel the love! i feel the love right there. welcome, everybody. welcome. welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome to "the tonight show," everybody. you're here. [ cheers and applause ] you made it. thank you.
i'm your host, jimmy fallon. just a heads up before we start. if any of you call an uber anytime soon, you might want to make sure it's not a white ford bronco. i'm just saying. [ cheers and applause ] because -- >> steve: be careful. might be a lyft. >> jimmy: that's right. o.j. simpson was officially granted parole today and could be out of jail by october. when asked what he plans to do first, he said, "well, catch up on all the shows about o.j." [ laughter ] "i heard they're great." sarah paulson -- [ applause ] sarah paulson's fantastic. that's what i hear. o.j. actually video conferenced into his parole hearing today, because the board was 120 miles away from his prison. yeah, not a good sign when even the parole board is scared to be near him. [ laughter and applause ] "can he see us? he can't see us, right?" a lot of people didn't know how to feel about the news. on one hand, o.j. is a a convicted felon. on the other hand, he managed to keep trump off tv for a a whole afternoon. so it's -- [ cheers and applause ] kind of a community service.
of course, the other big story is this interview president trump did with "the new york times." and the paper said that he made several false claims. and trump was like, "but you chose to print them, so once again, fake news." [ laughter and applause ] "so that's your -- that's on you." in the interview, trump warned special counsel robert mueller not to look into his family's finances. then mueller was like, "well, i wasn't going to, but now i definitely am." i mean, what are you trying -- "and don't look in that box." [ light laughter ] "never mind what's in that box." now i have to look in the box. [ light laughter ] trump also said that washington, d.c. should do a a big parade down pennsylvania avenue, like the bastille day parade that he went to in paris. trump said it should be just like his inauguration, but with people. [ laughter and applause ] i think that would be beautiful. but right now it is "made in america" week at the white house.
so trump hosted a bunch of business leaders to talk about american products. and, as always, trump made sure to focus on the most important issue. watch this. >> so what label do you like better, "made in america" or "made in the usa"? tell me. think about it. >> usa. [ light laughter ] >> what do you like better, "made in america" or "made in the usa"? what do you like, secretary, how do you feel? it used to be "made in the usa," i think. how do you feel, michael? "made in the usa" or "made in america"? peter, what do you like? what does the media like? do you like "made in america" or "made in the usa," steve? but either is great. or both. [ laughter ] >> steve: what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: goodness. then trump was like, "glad we got that settled. next issue, mary-kate or ashley?" [ laughter ] "what do you think, senator?" mary-kate?" [ applause ] "i can see that. what do you think? the media thinks ashley?" meanwhile, the identities of the people who attended the meeting between donald trump jr. and the russians keep coming out. it's making some people in washington very nervous.
so they're actually coming forward with their alibis to just prove that they weren't there. >> steve: really? >> jimmy: yeah. i mean, check out what they had to say. for example, chris christie said, "i was busy shutting down coney island so i could ride the cyclone by myself." [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: next, mike pence said he "spent a romantic evening with the wife, slow dancing to white noise." [ laughter ] >> steve: wow. [ imitating white noise ] >> jimmy: "that's our wedding song." [ light laughter ] and finally, melania trump said, "i'd say i was with donald, but no one would believe me." >> steve: oh! [ applause ] >> jimmy: there you go. we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh! hey, thank you, guys.

'cause how fast do sharks -- great white sharks go? >> whites can swim up to 25 miles an hour. >> jimmy: how fast can michael phelps swim? >> without that. >> jimmy: yeah. >> six miles an hour. with that -- [ talking over each other ] >> jimmy: by the way, look at this. so what is this thing called? >> so, it's a monofin. basically it was designed so i can swim like a shark. but -- and that's -- >> jimmy: that's you wearing it. >> that's the full get-up. [ light laughter ] that's the full get-up, yeah. >> jimmy: so, now, you get the whole -- does the suit help as well? >> it's a little buoyant. so, it helps me float a little bit. honestly, the fin was supposed to make me swim kind of like a a shark but it was -- >> jimmy: does it work? >> it makes me faster. i mean, it definitely makes you faster, but -- >> jimmy: so the challenge would be -- so it's -- is the
shark going to go 25 miles an hour? and can a shark go in a a straight line? >> so we got him to swim in a a straight line. they won't go 25 miles an hour the whole 100 meters. it's just in little short, like short bursts. >> jimmy: how did the shark go -- go from one end -- is it in the pool? is the shark in the pool? [ light laughter ] 'cause then you've got to get that shark out of the pool. that would be a -- no. [ light laughter ] [ talking over each other ] >> i don't think i would've survived that. >> jimmy: all right, everybody out. sharks only, sharks only swim. [ light laughter ] you're swimming in the ocean. >> swimming in the ocean with a a shark. and we're not in there at the same time. we have safety divers underneath and -- >> jimmy: of course. >> we actually ended up getting him to swim in a straight line. >> jimmy: you're a national treasure, you're michael phelps. you can't do stuff like that. i don't even want you going in a cage with a shark. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: so shark school, you get in a cage, and you get right up and you -- >> shark school i was out of the cage. i had 15 sharks around me, nurse sharks laying on my leg. yeah, it was crazy. it was cool. but i want to show a clip of you. here's michael phelps cage diving with sharks. take a look at this. >> coming in here, michael, guys -- coming in on the bay. >> that was a shark.

some people like to see celebrities as president of the united states. >> jimmy: yes, yes, yes. some people like to see that as well. yeah. this is true, though. but you do want to see -- i don't know why. but why do you want to see a a celebrity pumping gas? >> because it makes you feel like you're similar, you have a -- you have something in common because you also pump gas. [ light laughter ] or you -- >> jimmy: i mean, i do. i feel like brad pitt -- >> do you pump gas? >> jimmy: yeah, every time. [ laughter ] >> every time? >> jimmy: i haven't pumped gas in five years. of course i have -- no, no. i do. yeah, no, i do it. absolutely. >> it gets on your hands. >> jimmy: please. i can't do it. >> you have people for that. >> jimmy: i have people for that, yeah, of course. [ laughter ] no, i enjoy pumping gas. but no, i just don't know why -- >> you probably could get a job doing that if this doesn't work out. >> jimmy: i would be great at pumping gas. i mean, seriously. i don't even need a tip. i'm like, "i'm doing this for fun." but you know, i'll be on a a plane or something and my wife will have those magazine with the photos in it, and the gossip stuff, and i go, "why do you read that?" and then i go, like, "who's getting fat?" [ laughter ] you know, or whatever. >> i know. >> jimmy: but i can't - i can't -- i read it as much as
anyone else. >> i know. you can't not. it's addictive. >> jimmy: have you ever written to a celebrity, like growing up as a kid? >> i did. i actually, um -- when i was a a kid i loved shaun cassidy. and i had a "people" magazine -- he was in "the hardy boys" for people who aren't born in the dark ages. [ laughter ] and i thought -- in a "people" magazine, he was sitting atop his fan mail. so i thought -- >> jimmy: sitting atop. oh, my goodness. >> i thought he read his own fan mail. so i wrote him a letter. i wanted him to see it so i wrote it in glitter. [ laughter ] addressed it to shaun cassidy, abc studios, hollywood. and it -- i got something back from his fan club. so it actually did get to him. that's how people in hollywood post offices work. >> jimmy: yeah, i did not know that. but now people just like, kind of tweet celebrities and they hope for a tweet back. >> they do. >> jimmy: or a retweet or they want, like -- the autographs aren't even a thing. they just want selfies. >> they do.
they like selfies. what's interesting to me is people that take selfies at madam tussaud's. and they post them. it's like -- you don't care if they're actually a celebrity. just -- you can be a wax one. [ light laughter ] wax is fine. >> jimmy: and what celebrities are you fascinated with right now? >> i've had a long obsession with jennifer aniston. i actually have a chapter in my book about her. [ cheers and applause ] right? isn't she the best? >> jimmy: we love jennifer aniston. >> i love her. i think i related to her as rachel and i was really happy when she got together with brad pitt. and then when they broke up, i was devastated. [ light laughter ] and i -- i actually went into therapy and my therapist said, "you look upset." and i said, "i know this sounds crazy, but i'm really upset about brad and jen breaking up." [ laughter ] and she said, "you said i have no idea how many of my patients have come in and said that." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're kidding me. really? >> nope. >> jimmy: wow. >> we were all upset. we should have had some kind of a mourning group or a grieving
group. >> jimmy: they're happy now. >> yes. >> jimmy: i mean, jennifer's happy now. >> she's totally happy. i -- i'm -- >> jimmy: and so are you. >> we both are. >> jimmy: more importantly. >> we both got through it. >> jimmy: more importantly, you both got through it.
