tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC July 18, 2018 11:35pm-12:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: very nice. hi there i'm jimmy, i'm the host of this show. thank you for watching. thanks for coming. i'm glad you're here. i'm glad i'm here. i'm glad we've gathered. because at times like these, it's important that we have bonding. very nice. we have a lot to get to. before we begin i have today's corrections from the white house. they asked me to help get a few messages out. first of all, the president meant to say that papa john was treated unfairly, not fairly. he mistakenly carried the "un" from his meeting with kim jong-un, who he would like to
clarify is not a great guy under that chubby exterior. second, the president did not intend to say that kentucky fried chick syen is a healthy breakfast for children. we'd like to retract the name junior from donald trump jr. as it has become clear his son is kind of a douche. [ cheers and applause ] we'll have more when he wakes up. this has been some week for donald trump. he has been trouble and triple talking his wau through the fallout from his puppet show with vladimir putin on monday. as i hope you know trump did what was previously unthinkable, he publicly sided with putin over our own u.s. intelligence agencies, which did not go over well with democrats or some of his fellow republicans. yesterday he made the very shabby claim that when he said he didn't see any reason why russia would hack the election, he meant to say he didn't see any reason why they wouldn't hack the election, a ridiculous claim no one believes with the
possible exception of the morning suckups at "fox & friends." >> the economy is great, he sat down with kim jong-un, this was the other summit, sitting down with a lead that we need to have a relationship with. and everyone is excited about that. then he misspeaks one word, one contraction, he forgot to put the n apostrophe t at the end and it ruins the whole summit? >> jimmy: it's outrageous. like saying one flame on "the hindenburg" ruined the whole ride on the blump. donald trump isn't burdened by reality, he only listens to the voices in his head. those voices think he is doing great. >> we're doing very well. we are doing very well. we're doing very well. probably as well as anybody has ever done with russia. and there's been no president ever as tough as i have been on russia. >> jimmy: that's true, when trump hugs putin, he squeezes him really hard. [ laughter ] reagan didn't do that to
gorbach gorbachev, he didn't have the guts. after making the most embarrassing bold-faced presidential lie since clinton and the oral sex, claiming he misspoke and meant to say he did trust american intelligence officials more than the former kgb agent in charge of russia, he went ahead and did it again today. this afternoon, days after his own director of national intelligence warned us that russia is still actively trying to hack our elections, he said the warning signs are there, the system is blinking, a reporter asked trump if he agreed with that assessment. and he said this. >> thank you all very much. appreciate it. >> is russia still targeting the u.s., mr. president? >> thank you very much, no. >> make your way out, let's go we're finished. >> jimmy: he said no. he said no twice. which means he's again taking putin's side which is a disaster after yesterday. how does the white house handle this? send out the whose press secretary to feed sinus some sa
hu what ka bebs, saying he meant no, no more questions. >> he said no. does the president actually believes he understands the question, and is it his position, no, russia is not doing anything to interfere or meddle in the 2018 election? >> i had a chance to speak with the president after his comments and the president said thank you very much and was saying no to answering questions. the president and his administration are working very hard to make sure that russia is unable to meddle in our elections, as they have done in the past, and as we have stated. >> imagine being sarah huckabee sanders. you come into work this morning, you learn your assignment is to spin the word "no." [ laughter ] this is why she spends two weeks in hiding between press briefings now. this is remarkable. we got a real problem here. this is a yes-or-no question. he answered no. now she's saying no didn't mean no. she must really want to start eating at restaurants again is all i can figure.
not everyone on team trump felt the need to defend their boss, though. his chief of staff, john kelly, was reportedly so furious after this lovefest with vladimir putin, he personally called republican congresspeople to give them the green light to criticize the president in public. and by the way, what does that say about the congresspeople? the president just sold us out to the russians, i hope i get the okay to say something about it. the problem is, though, if they dare attack this guy, they could lose their seats to some far right-wing nutjob, so for the time being they are bravely hiding under their desks. not every nonliberal is keeping it zipped. former army lieutenant colonel ralph peters had this on msnbc. >> the russians always try to get you two ways if they n. donald trump was in moscow. we know there were murmurings about prostitutes. from what you know of donald trump's character, can you believe that if at midnight two stunningly gorgeous russian hookers showed up at his door and said, we are a gift from
your friend, that donald trump would have said, young ladies, go home to your mothers and i shall pray for you? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hm, let me think about that. no, i don't think so. will someone please give that man a show? i'd watch an hour of that every night. [ laughter ] it's all very crazy. yet with all of this moscow madness happening, according to a new poll from reuters, 71% of republican voters have a favorable view of how trump has been dealing with russia. which is nuts. but i was thinking about this today. and i think there's a simple explanation. they might not like what he's doing, they might not like him, but they love how pissed off it makes democrats. so they want it to keep happening. trump kept his base going by calling out his haters today on twitter. he's the taylor swift of treason, he really is. he wrote today, some people hate the fact that i got along well with the president of russia, they would rather go to war than see this, it's called trump
derangement syndrome. i've never heard of trump derangement syndrome. if it is a syndrome named after donald trump, i assume it's sexually transmitted? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] we should take it seriously. and fortunately help is on the way. >> do you feel like the world is out to get you? >> phoney witch hunt, rigged deal -- >> do you falsely claim to have said things you didn't mean to say? >> i said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't." >> do you sometimes make strange sounds for no reason? >> bing, bing, bong, bong, bing, bing -- >> if so, you mash suffering from trump derangement syndrome. tds. ask your doctor about rezine. get you back to living the life you used to love. change your world and the world. rezine. fewer than 1% of users

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: provided by obamacare. meanwhile this now seems like it was 15 years ago, but while much of the focus has been on the president's meeting with putin, there are new details about trump's british holiday and a possible slight from the queen herself. you know, when trump landed in england last week, queen elizabeth was said to be wearing a brooch, a necklace that was given to her by the obamas. which might not seem like a big deal here, but in england that's the equivalent of drake and pusha t all over again. not only wearing a brooch given to her by the obamas, wearing a hat given to her by cedric the entertainer. you know, the queen traditionally does not weigh in on politics. but buckingham palace released an official statement this
afternoon. hopefully we'll clear this potentially messy situation up. ♪ >> ahem! by her majesty's decree, i hereby proclaim it so that on this, the 18th day of july, in god's year 2018, president of the american colonies, donald trump, is and shall heretofore be known as -- big, fat, dirty bitch. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that is not going to help at all. wasn't big, fat, dirty bitch in the woo tang clan? when we come back, it's vin diesel's birthday today. we will honor that. and we have a new world's dumbest online challenge that i
have strong feelings about, so stick around, we'll be right back. and now is the best time to buy. preparing classic campfire trout. say what? trout. trout. all right. you don't think i need both? why does he have that axe? make summer go right with ford america's best selling brand. now get 0% financing for 72 months plus $1,000 ford credit bonus cash on a great selection of suv's. during the ford summer sales event, get our best offer of the season 0% financing for 72 months plus $1,000 ford credit bonus cash. hey, this one looks like a chameleon. hmm, i don't see it. oh, it's on!

>> jimmy: welcome back. lakeith stanfield, music by lil baby and magic johnson is on the way. magic is president of basketball operations for the lakers, i don't know if you heard, he signed a really good player to join the team. first, have you seen this in my feelings challenge online? "in my feelings" is a song by drake. the challenge, this was started by a social media personality named shiggy. he posted a video of himself danting to that song in a specific way.
the video went viral. others started making their own videos. for whatever reason, it went somehow from people dancing to people dancing while jumping out of their moving cars. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> oh my god! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: maybe he got the response he deserves. it's funny but jumping out of a moving car is obviously dangerous. drake started his career playing a guy in a wheelchair, now his music could be putting other people in them too.
and i don't know, maybe i'm just old. i don't like this stuff. guillermo, what did uncle frank always say? >> guillermo: safety first. >> jimmy: safety first, that's right. you have to remember that safety comes first before anything. so i teamed up with a very popular hip-hop star to create a social media challenge that puts safety first. so for those of you looking to participate in a viral trend, one that won't get you killed, pay attention to this because it is off the hizook. >> yo, it's your boy jimmy kimmel with home slice ty dollar sign. >> what's up? we're here to tell you not all viral challenges have to be dangerous. >> word, here's a new dope viral challenge for you and your friends. >> it's called the life challenge! >> check it. ♪ ♪ >> step one, safely get into your vehicle. and don't forget to click. >> this is it. ♪

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: how are you? >> i'm good, i'm good, i'm good. >> jimmy: thanks for coming. i have so many questions for you. it's weird to see you in green, though, i have to say. it's like it's upsetting in a way. >> well, maybe i just want to pay, you know, a little homage to larry bird. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] or homage to all the money you just gave lebron.
>> we gave him a lot. >> jimmy: yeah, right, you did. >> the last time i was here, i got in trouble. >> jimmy: i know. >> make sure i don't get in trouble today. >> jimmy: you know, i got in trouble too. people were mad at me because there was a fine assessed. the league takes these free agent conversations very seriously. >> $500,000. >> jimmy: $500,000 as a result of your appearance on this show. >> and we have a good time too. [ laughter ] but the thing i would mad at, everybody out here, jimmy didn't call me to say, hey, i'ma throw in $100,000, $3 a200,000. >> jimmy: no. >> i thought you were going to call saying, i'm going to help you out. >> jimmy: yeah, no. well, don't you get like $800 for being here? [ laughter ] that's my contribution. >> okay, you made your contribution that way. >> jimmy: a couple of weeks ago you announced if you were unable as president of basketball operations to bring a major free agent to the lakers, you would quit, you would resign, you would consider yourself to be a failure. at that time did you have a good
idea that you were going to get lebron? >> no. >> jimmy: you did not. >> no. but i had confidence in myself and also the laker brand, the laker young players that we have. luke walton as the coach. you know, rob polinka and i will do our homework, and we really thought we had a great plan to introduce to lebron. when you got an owner like jeanie buss, i think all those things -- i think we had a strong argument to him to come join the lakers. and so i couldn't wait to get in front of him because i had watched all the film on him when he was with cleveland, the first time, when he was with miami, then when he went back to cleveland. so i had a sense of his game. and what he wanted in terms of what he was looking for. but i had to get in front of him to just -- >> jimmy: sell him on it? >> where we are, that's right. >> jimmy: it's interesting how it works. you mentioned that fine. because the rules are very
strict. at 9:01 p.m., that's on june 30th, that's when you are able to start speaking to lebron. >> that's right. >> jimmy: not a minute before that. >> not a minute before. >> jimmy: you do go to his house. did he invite you to his house. do you call and say, i'd like to come to your house? >> that's good. [ laughter ] yeah we had to call and ask for permission. >> jimmy: i see, yes. >> to have a meeting. but rob called, his agent. and when you think about rich paws, his agent. we talked and said lebron would love to have a meeting with the lakers but he wants to have it with magic so that's what happened. >> jimmy: then were you excited? great, i get to be in there by myself? or did you rather rob was there, the whole team was there? >> i was ready, man. >> jimmy: you were ready to do it. >> yeah, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] i work best by myself. i showed up at 8:00. >> jimmy: you showed up at 8:00. before you took this meeting with lebron, did you speak to lonzo ball's father to make sure
it was okay? [ laughter ] okay to recruit him to be a part of the team? >> i would have called you first before i called lavar ball, trust me. [ cheers and applause ] no, i didn't calla vaur. >> jimmy: you did not call, okay. >> no, and ask permission. so i got to 8:00 -- >> jimmy: you're an hour early, what did you do, sit in the car? >> that's right. i'm an on-time guy. i was just hoping that i didn't have to go to the bathroom. i was like, okay. >> jimmy: it would be a weird way to start. >> exactly. i would have got fined because i had to go early, right? >> jimmy: yeah, right. that would have been anpee, yea. you get to lebron's house. >> i'm sitting out there. i wait for 9:00. so at 9:00 i inch to the ghate.
>> jimmy: okay. >> i don't ring the buzzer till 9:01. >> jimmy: they really have you paranoid. >> oh, man. they had me so scared. >> jimmy: it's crazy. >> because your half million dollars i was thinking about that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. and it wasn't like that back when you were -- >> no. >> jimmy: -- playing, right? it was different. >> it's different now. >> jimmy: you sit down with lebron. and how do you open it? like how do you start? does he start, do you start? >> of course he greeted me at the door. we sat down. and i tell you something, jimmy. this guy is so smart. >> jimmy: what was he wearing? [ laughter ] >> there's some shorts, you know. he had on his lebron nike gear. >> jimmy: okay, all right. >> and looking very sharp. >> jimmy: gotcha. >> you know. very relaxed. >> jimmy: uh-huh. >> we just, you know, started talking about how we both grew up, first. and how we had probably the same expectations of, you know, people expected us to win and be
good and we both midwest boys, him from ohio, me from michigan. we started that direction. then we headed toward the lakers. and he broke down every player on our team. their strength and weaknesses. he already knew, you know, the guys on our team. >> jimmy: you were impressed by that? >> i was very impressed with that. the fact that he knew he could fit into this young core that we had. and so we just started a dialogue. and before we knew it, you know, two hours had passed already. but it was a lot of laker expectations and offense, defense, you know. how he likes to play. and what was great is this is how he wants to play today. right? the way the lakers play, with pace. he's going to really take our players to this level. >> jimmy: sure he is. >> make them so much better. >> jimmy: 24 hours after that golden state, which they already have this unbelievable team, they sign demarcus cousins,
who's another all-star. >> right. >> jimmy: is that dispiriting when you hear that? >> no, no, i love competition. i love chasing the best. they're the best, so we'll look forward to playing against them. >> jimmy: i see. do you think at this point the lakers, the way the team is situated right now, could beat golden state? >> i think, you know, we will look forward to that challenge, right? everybody expects golden state to win again. but i would love to have the challenge and to play them in the western conference finals. >> jimmy: right. >> if we could get to that position. so i'm not -- i'm a competitor. so i'm not scared of golden state. i'm not worried about golden state. they don't keep me up at night. i know that we have a really solid team, a good team, a competitive team, and a tough-minded team. and we got guys now who are winners. lebron james brings a championship mentality to our team. so does rondo. he's won a championship with boston. >> jimmy: sure, yeah. >> and then javale mcgee, who
used to play for golden state, he's won two championships. >> jimmy: before you sign these guys, do you talk to lebron about it? >> oh, for sure. >> jimmy: you do. >> for sure. >> jimmy: that was a courtesy that was extended to you as well? >> exactly. dr. buss, before we made moves, he would always come to me what do you think about this guy? what do you think about this trade? and so i want to make sure i do the same. because lebron has played against these guys. so he knows them even better than myself. >> jimmy: right, yeah. >> he knows what's up here, he knows what's in here. that's important, to know if they're smart, if they're tough, if they're tough-minded, that's important. >> jimmy: all right. we're going to take a break. i wish i could have come to this meeting with you. [ laughter ] >> if you would have gave me $250,000, you could have. >> jimmy: next time. magic johnson is here. be right back. (vo) what if this didn't have to happen? i didn't see it.
