[ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: how are you? >> how about that mel brooks? >> jimmy: good luck following that. >> i know. i'm just going to get up right now. >> jimmy: really. there's almost no point in continuing. >> i'm not going to try to make a joke after that. can you imagine him and reiner tonight watching that? that kimmel, he's going places. >> jimmy: i like to imagine that. i like, in fact, i'm going to follow him home and go to it with them, watch it with them. now, jake, you've written this book and this is really an excellent book and i think -- i think a lot of people don't know, don't have any idea what goes on in afghanistan. i, for one, did not have any idea what was going on in afghanistan until i read this. and the interviews that you -- did you go over there? >> a couple of times. >> jimmy: you interviewed hundreds of people, including of people who aren't necessarily on our side. >> right. i did interview an insurgent or two. >> jimmy: and how do you interview an insurgent? are they incredulous over there?
what do you get? >> i had a fixer and the fixer was from this remote region, where the man who would be king took place, the old novella and the movie with michael caine. and this fixer found an insurgent and it was so bizarre. i'm sitting in my nice little study with my computer on, my mac and i'm skyping with an insurgent. >> jimmy: unbelievable. >> and the fixer is translating and identified as farook in the book. not his real name. and he is -- he's one of the many guys who has come and reconciled with the government, so, he's no longer an insurgent. >> jimmy: okay. >> so, it's like i know where the bad guy is. he's actually cool now. >> jimmy: in the book, you talk about how they're kind of a different culture from the other afghans. >> it's like the afghanistan of afghanistan. they are completely cut off. they don't want anybody there.
and they were the last ones to convert to islam. and the first ones to take up arms against the soviets. they are a rebellious people. >> jimmy: they will say pretty much anything they need to say to whomever wanders into their area just to get them to go away. >> they thought when a lot of the americans came in, they thought they were russians. they thought they were russians and in fact, this outpost that i profile, outside it are the hollowed out shells of former soviet personnel carriers, which, for a lot of the soldiers, was not reassuring. >> jimmy: so, they're not watching cable news. they are not getting cnn and al jazeera in those places -- >> a lot of short wave radio. it depends on the town, but yeah, no, it's cut off from a lot of civilization. >> jimmy: how long have you been covering the white house for abc? >> since president obama was elected. >> jimmy: you were on the campaign trail this time around. >> weird being in a nonswing state. i feel like i should be in wisconsin or ohio.
>> jimmy: there's no swinging here. >> all these -- it's -- everybody is a democrat here. i'm used to going to states where it is completely divided down the middle. >> jimmy: you went to every town that obama went to. >> yeah, madison, des moines. >> jimmy: what is that like? you must be like the greatest packer in the world. >> i'm the worst. i was like beyonce. i had like these two huge bags. it was embarrassing. i had to wear a lot of suits and you have to, you know, florida, swing state, very different weather than, you know, wisconsin, swing state. >> jimmy: okay. >> so, i had a lot of stuff to bring. >> jimmy: do you not know how long you're going to be gone? >> no. you pack for like three weeks. >> jimmy: and you go and you follow the president. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you get to know him in this situation? >> i got to know him a lot better in 2008 when i was on the same plane with him. this time, we have a press charter. sometimes you rotate into air force one. most of the time not. he knows me by now. >> jimmy: i got you. you bust their balls constantly in those press conferences.
do they like you, do you think? like, jay carney and these guys that you ask these questions, do they like you? >> it's like the old, "it's better to be respected than liked." >> jimmy: so no, they don't like you. [ laughter ] >> i'm not trying to be like that. i'm trying to be a pain in their butt. that's the job. doesn't matter who is in the seat, whether or not you think oh, he's cool, he's the president, i'm supposed to hold him accountable. >> jimmy: that would be the hardest thing to me. especially if you get to like somebody or whatever and you are really dealing with them every single day and to ask the questions, i watch you sometimes and i can't believe this is a person i know because you really, really are a ball buster in every sense of the word. >> thank you. [ laughter ] that's my job. that's what i'm paid to you. >> jimmy: were you a difficult child? [ laughter ] >> yes, but that's irrelevant. >> jimmy: nothing to do with that? in class, did the teachers go, oh, god, here's tapper again.
>> yeah. come to think of it, probably some english teachers going, i knew he was going to put those powers to evil. >> jimmy: it turns out not to evil. now, you, do you joke around with the president, do you -- >> on occasion. on occasion. not a lot. but you know, i covered him for so long that it's tough. you know, you let your guard down. one time, he recently, we all have our imitations, our impressions of the president. and we do them when he's not around -- ah, look. you do them and -- >> jimmy: they all start with look. >> and -- well, that's one of them. anyway, he came into the press room in august and i was kind of thrown and i just -- i forgot where i was and everybody was televising it and i -- hello, everybody. and he looked at me, like, because i did this obama impression that everybody was used to me doing and he looked at me -- that's pretty good. >> jimmy: busted. >> yeah.
i'm like, thanks, i've been working on it for a long time. >> jimmy: can they throw you off the detail? can they call abc, say, jake's not allowed in the white house anymore. >> for bad impressions? >> jimmy: for anything. >> no, i mean, i guess they could. i mean, but not when you're with abc news. >> jimmy: right. it wouldn't be appropriate. >> pretty good sense of humor. what people may not know is that jimmy is a failed cartoonist, as i am. we both pursued that at one point. >> jimmy: you are a very good artist, actually. >> you are -- >> jimmy: let's not get into each other here. >> you should know, he gave me some pens and so a couple of the maps in here were drawn with your pens. >> jimmy: i feel like i've written something. >> i should have acknowledged. jim this is the book. it is well worth reading. jake tapper, everybody. we'll be right back with jason
