[ cheers and applause ] you made it! you're here! well the big story is still fo f
yesterday. and i saw that trump's lawyer responded with a statement that was filled with typos and even misspelled the word "president." [ laughter ] trump was like, "did he forget the 'z?' [ light laughter ] because i do that. it's a common mistake." [ laughter and applause ] forget the z? no. during his testimony comey said that he had a friend leak his memos to "the new york times" to get a special council appointed to the russia investigation. and that's when he found out that if you say the words "leak," "new york times," and "russia." donald trump suddenly appears behind you. he's like oh -- like beetlejuice. hey! [ applause ] comey also said that he's sure trump will be investigated for obstruction of justice. and if trump's found guilty they plan to punish him by still making him be president. [ laughter and applause ] the white house responded to reports that trump lied and said that it's frankly insulting to be asked if he's a a liar. [ light laughter ]
the white house didn't actually deny that trump is a liar. that would be insulting. how dare you! [ laughter and applause ] i did not take the cookie from the cookie jar. [ laughter ] >> steve: you took the cookie from the cookie jar! >> jimmy: 'twas he who took the cookie from the cookie jar!

what? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: zero. >> zero. >> jimmy: one of the big takeaways from the hearing was that trump tried to get comey to pledge his loyalty to him, which as a lot of people said is inappropriate. well, trump's not backing down. in fact, he just released this video about it. >> hello, this is donald j. trump. if you're in my administration, i need loyalty. i expect loyalty. and in return, you'll get something very, very special. the trump loyalty card. [ laughter ] it gives you all kinds of benefits in all kinds of places like free tickets to amazing ted nugent concerts. a one on one dinner with me that's so fantastic you'll want to go straight home and write a a memo about it. and a 10% deal at all trump hotels. not 10% off. 10% more. if you're loyal, you'll pay it. the trump loyalty card. get one, or get fired.

[ audience aws ] >> jimmy: and everybody had their phones out. [ cheers and applause ] and it was a big moment. here's the both of you guys. she's so very, very pretty. >> and we won. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: my question is where did you have the ring during the whole fight? [ laughter ] never mind, never mind. don't answer that, don't answer that. >> you knw, a diamond is a very strong stone. >> jimmy: okay, perfect, yeah, that'll -- john, let's talk about -- [ light laughter ] >> shame on you, jimmy. >> jimmy: you know what? i had the best time there. i had the greatest time. >> it was good times. >> jimmy: wwe took such great care of me. but i got there. and it was the most entertaining, the most fun. i almost lost my voice. and i had to host the show. we were in orlando. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i had the greatest, greatest time there. i have such, such respect for you guys. it was the most amazing thing. if you ever get a chance to go see live wrestling. >> wrestlemania is a good time. >> jimmy: wrestlemania. >> it's our biggest kb
>> jimmy: you showed up, it was fantastic. >> couldn't think of a -- wwe has been my family for a a long time now and that's kind of -- was the ultimate decision in me wanting to do something that much of an emotional decision for me. i wanted to do it in front of my family. >> jimmy: how'd you not cry? your mom was in the audience. >> she showed up, unannounced. i've been in 15 of those freaking things and she's never showed up. [ laughter ] so because we're in the citrus bowl, the entryway is 60 yards down like a 30% grade. so i'm awkwardly running, i slide into the ring out of breath. and then i get up, and i'm like, literally, i can't -- i don't want to cuss because there may be kids watching this late at night. >> jimmy: cover your mouth. >> the first thing i said, as there -- holy -- my mom's here. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did they get you on camera? >> tough guy persona gone. just slid right off. >> jimmy: hi, mommy. i love you, mommy. yeah.

moment for me. i want to talk about "american grit" on fox. >> let's talk about it. >> jimmy: i know george foreman's son is going to be in it this season. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: you want to explain to people what it is if they haven't seen it. >> yeah, so, we tried a project last year called "american grit" where we took really dedicated people and put them through intense physical challenges. and that was really cool but it was tough for the viewer to relate to like, "hey, man, what does it feel like to carry a a 250-pound log 13 miles?" so because -- [ light laughter ] i mean we don't really do that. >> jimmy: no. >> not every day. >> jimmy: most of us, no. >> i really try to use my voice to inspire and to try to motivate. and on wwe i proudly wear the mantra of of never give up every time i'm in the ring. >> jimmy: sure. >> so this year on "american grit" it is all about finding your grit. and the challenges are more built around mental focus, team building, leadership. some challenges are physical, some challenges are very non-run of the mill but we have a wonderful group of contestants. and it always starts with the contestants. we're very open that they have flaws in life that they need some direction, that they need some hp.
and then i got a crew of brand new military mentors to help these people. so, yes, it is a competition show. somebody's gonna walk away with a quarter of a million bucks but it's also a very, very inspirational journey. and these people are so open with their lives and that's when you begin to get attached and invested. so sunday nights on fox are going to be really inspirational ride. it's "american grit" season two. and i hope everybody enjoys. >> jimmy: yeah. they will. absolutely. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i have a quick question before we go to commercial. i have a quick question. because i saw a video of you deadlifting -- deadlifting like 600-and-something pounds. >> it was my 40th birthday. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, 40th birth -- by don't you just go to like a a island and go like, you know, have a drink or something? [ light laughter ] >> bro -- >> jimmy: you deadlifted -- >> i'm john cena. >> jimmy: oh, you're john cena, i'm sorry. why would i ask that? [ cheers and applause ] here's my question. here's my question. can you deadlift a person? could you just -- >> you guys don't want to see it. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: can you do it? >> i'll try it. let's try it. all right. [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: i just got to be still? >> you got the lie down. >> jimmy: okay. [ cheers and applause ] >> here's the thing. you got to think stiff as a a board, stiff as a board, stiff as a board. give me one of your hands, we're going to shake hands like this. >> jimmy: okay, yep. >> and i'm going to get the old -- see if the old guy's still got it. i'm going to need some enthusiasm.
