tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC November 7, 2018 11:35pm-12:37am PST
>> from all of us, jimmy kimmel live, melissa mccarthy. dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- melissa mccarthy, dennis miller, and music from the milk carton kids. and now, for the most part, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hello, thank you. very nice. thank you. hi, everyone. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. very kind. i'll tell you something -- i apologize for my voice.
i don't know about you, but -- [ cheers ] that's very kind. i was exhausted. i was up so late last night watching the results of the election. that's how you know the tension in this country is high. i'm up at 4:00 in the morning going, when the hell are they going to mountains who won montana senate? [ laughter ] i watched a lot of cable news last night and i saw all manner of interesting things, starting with nancy pelosi, who will presumably return as speaker after the democrats retook the house. last night nancy pelosi gave what turned out to be a most unusual victory speech. >> it's about stopping the gop and mitch mcconnell's assaults on medicare, medicaid, the affordable care act, the health care of 130 million americans living with pre-existing medical conditions. let's hear it more for pre-existing medical conditions! >> jimmy: >> jimmy: oh, okay. when i say dia, you say betes!
dia -- betes! like a college dropouto much a s it was a red flush. that was in the house. that was in the house. in the senate it was a strong night for republicans and mitch mcconnell partied well into the wee hours of the morning. >> jimmy: he ate two heads of lettuce and passed out. democrats get the house, republicans keep the senate. which means a divided government, which means more gridlock in washington, which is usually a bad thing. now i find myself actually rooting for congress to get nothing done. one of the most reserve more popular candidates was beto o'rourke, the texas newcomer -- [ cheers and applause ] who lost his race to ted cruz. but won the award for outstanding expletive in a concession speech. >> not a dime from a single pac. all people all the time.
in every single part of texas. all of you showing the country how you do this. i'm so [ bleep ] proud of you guys. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: about two minutes after beto lost, people started running him for president. which i like beto, i could see his appeal. but everyone needs to calm down. he just lost to ted cruz, the least-charismatic man on the planet. [ laughter ] donald trump crushed ted cruz. as far as running for the president, beto's not off to a roaring start. hey this guy just lost, let's put our money on him! [ laughter ] this is good too. this is from indiana's newly elected senator, mike braun. >> we all need to -- we all believe that we've got to put some type of security on our southern border. we all know that we need to start balancing our budgets. it's just going to take i think guys and ladies like me that have done things in the real world, or else we're not going
to solve those problems. >> jimmy: wait a minute. that's a lady? [ laughter ] no, i don't -- i hate to be shallow, but she's not very pretty. [ laughter ] and of course, no election would be complete without a recount in florida. bill nelson, the democrat, is calling for a recount in the senate race. in georgia, stacey abrams has yet to concede the race for governor. she's hoping for a runoff against brian kemp. unfortunately for her, brian kemp also happens to be the georgia secretary of state. which means he's in charge of 87 seeing his own election. that must be nice. after careful consideration, i rule in favor of me. [ laughter ] you know, yesterday my office, watching cnn with the sound off, i started playing a game. when they put the pictures of the candidates up on the screen side by side, we guessed which one was the republican, which was the democrat. it's not as easy as you might think. you want to try it? all right, here we go. guess the candidate's party. it's a party game, all right? first up, all right, here, which one is the republican? here or here?
i don't know right, i'm not a weatherman. is this the republican? let's find out. that is the republican. you see, it's hard. which one is the democrat? is this the democrat? let's find out. that's the republican. all right. next, which one is the republican? is this the republican? all right. yes, it is. well, all right. wow, you're bad at this. [ laughter ] which one is the democrat? is this the democrat? that is right, that is the democrat. next, which is the republican? is this the republican? let's see. yes, that's correct. and i think we have one more. which is the democrat here? is this the democrat? that is right, that's jackie rosen, she won the senate in nevada. this is the most republican-looking man in the history of the world.
[ laughter ] you know, despite losing control of the house, our president took a victory lap last night. he called the results very close to a complete victory for republicans. yes. in the same way the world series was very close to complete victory for the dodgers. [ laughter ] i mean, other than games one, two, four, and five, they crushed it, they won. trump did some heavy-duty tweeting with those adorable little orange nubs of his. this is interesting. look at the times on these tweets. this one, 1:27 a.m. next one, 1:49 a.m. and then next one, 6:21 a.m. it's like he tweeted himself unconscious. [ laughter ] then woke up four hours later and went right back at it. the president was in a foul and spiteful way this morning. his first order of business? calling out all the republican losers who didn't embrace him. >> you had some that decided to, let's stay away. let's stay away. they did very poorly. i'm not sure that i should be happy or sad.
but i feel just fine about it. carlos cubela. mike kofman. too bad, mike. mia love gave me no love. and she lost. too bad. sorry about that mia. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he is an absolute child. he really is. [ laughter ] trump also got in a nasty back and forth with costa of cnn that at times felt like it might turn into a wrestling match. >> they're hundreds and hundreds of miles away, that's not an invasion -- >> honestly, i think you should let me run the country, you run cnn. if you did it well, your ratings would be much better -- >> mr. president, if i may ask -- >> that's enough, that's enough. >> mr. president -- >> that's enough. >> the other folks -- >> that's enough. >> pardon me, ma'am -- mr. president -- >> that's enough. >> may i ask on the russia investigation, are you concerned that you may have -- >> i'm not concerned about
anything with an investigation because it's a hoax. that's enough, put down the mike. >> mr. president, are you worried about indictments coming down in this investigation? mr. president? >> i tell you what, kcnn shoulding ashamed of itself having you working for them. you are a rude, terrible person. you shouldn't be working for cnn. go ahead. >> i think that's -- >> you're a very rude person, the way you treat sarah huckabee is horrible. the way you treat other people are horrible. you shouldn't treat people that way. >> in jim's defense, i traveled with him, he's a diligent reporter -- >> i'm not a big fan of yours either, to be honest. >> let me ask you a question if i can -- pi >> you aren't the best. >> jimmy: did somebody not get his snickers bar this morning? [ laughter ] if donald trump ever ends up on money, it should be a sockful of nickels he used to beat people with. despite claiming victory the president was in quite a mood and he wasn't just mad at jim
acosta, he lashed out at just about everybody. >> sit down, please. i didn't call you. i didn't call you. i didn't call you. no. you rudely interrupted him. i don't know why you'd say that, such a racist question. excuse me. would you please sit down. please go ahead. sit down, please. thank you very much. >> why are you pitting americans against one another? >> peter, are you trying to be him? >> it's unfair to the country -- >> give him the mike, please, i've answered the question. excuse me. you are not called on. no, that's enough. what's your next question? go ahead. come on, let's go. more exciting question than that, please. quiet. quiet. quiet. go ahead. what kind of a question is that? >> just asking, just curious -- >> a comedian here. who are you from? >> yahoo! news. >> yahoo!? good, i hope they're doing well. see, when you talk about division, it's people like this. >> jimmy: i hope someone had the sense to hide the nuclear button today. [ laughter ] put it under a cup or something.
and on top of all this, trump fired jeff sessions today. in the wake of democrats winning the house and the threat of s&ps for trump's records hovering over his beautiful head, sessions was forced to resign as attorney general this morning. that's him exiting the building, leaving the department of justice to go back to live in his hollow tree. [ laughter ] in a letter to the president, sessions wrote, at your request i am submitting my resignation, which is a formal way of saying, f-u for firing me. and in the letter he said, he operated with integrity and strove to uphold the rule of law. and trump was like, yeah, why do you think i fired you? [ laughter ] i didn't want that. by the way, trump didn't even fire him, he had his chief of staff, john kelly, do it. you know, the one and only thing trump is good at is firing people. [ laughter ] and he can't even do that, it's amazing. of course the president was unhappy with sessions for recusing himself in the russia investigation. you know how it goes. you recuse, you lose, right, jeff?
[ laughter ] so now they passed over rod rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, they put a guy in there, this guy wrote an op-ed critical of the mueller investigation. that man will now be overseeing the mueller investigation. okay, bob mueller, time to snort some adderall and get that report done asap, you understand? [ cheers and applause ] we've waited long enough. here in california, we have a new governor. governor-elect gavin newsom is our new governor. he was lieutenant governor, he was mayor of san francisco. i don't know how i didn't know this until today, but gavin newsom was also once married to former fox news host kimberly guilfoyle. they possessed for this fantastic photograph together. [ laughter ] for "harper's bazaar" magazine. looks like she just got voted off "dancing with the stars." now the reason this is particularly interesting, besides the fact that he's ultra-liberal and she's some kind of a fox bot, is because
kimberly guilfoyle is currently dating none other than djtj, donald trump. she must have a thing for slicked-back hair. what lady doesn't, i guess. but you know what i'm saying. back to the election. it was a historic day up and down the ballot. in colorado, jared pullis becomes the first openly gay man to become governor of that state. [ cheers and applause ] i tell you something, if i was governor, my first official act would be to order that homophobic baker to make a cake for my victory party. [ laughter ] nationally, 96 women were elected to the house of representatives. which -- [ cheers and applause ] 96. that is obviously a record number, 96. it's also donald and melania's favorite sexual position. [ rim shot ] think about it. [ laughter ] there were so many historic firsts last night. the first native american lesbian elected to congress.
the first muslim women elected to congress. and guess what? mike pence is going to have to swear them all in. lap [ cheers and applause ] actually, there were two native american women elected to office. one of them is sharise davids. and if you're donald trump, sharise davids is your worst nightmare. a lesbian native american former mma fighter who's been watching you call elizabeth warren pocahontas for two years now and could beat your ass if she wanted to. [ laughter ] in nevada another bit of history. in nevada they elected the first dead brothel owner to the state legislature. for real. what a time to be alive, right? [ laughter ] or dead, i guess. dennis hoff, who is kind of a famous guy. he owned multiple infamous brothels, including the bunny ranch. won a spot in the nevada state assembly, despite the fact that he died last month. you know, sometimes the weekend at bernie's movies write themselves. [ laughter ]
this district is so republican that rather than a democrat, they voted for a horny ghost. [ laughter ] it must be a weird feeling to lose an election to a dead pimp. we tracked down dennis hoff's opponent, lisa romanoff, an educator, assistant principal at a school in las vegas, joining us live very cisco. hello, lisa, how are you? [ cheers and applause ] >> hi, jimmy. >> jimmy: lisa, first of all, i'm sorry for your loss. i would imagine it came as quite a shock. >> yes and no. we kind of expected, after he passed, it kind of messed up the campaign. >> jimmy: yeah. especially for him, really. [ laughter ] >> well, he wasn't doing a great job, but you know. >> jimmy: when that happened, did you feel like maybe you had it in the bag? >> no. actually, when we found that out, a lot republicans had said they would support us because they in no way wanted him up in the legislature. >> jimmy: i see. >> so when he died, we knew immediately that we would have a lot of republicans jumping ship.
>> jimmy: so his death was the key to his victory. >> absolutely. and crazy as that sounds, yes. >> jimmy: did you try a poster that said "i'm not dead" or something like that? [ laughter ] >> we didn't. you know, once he died, it was pretty difficult. a lot of our literature we could no longer use. it's in bad taste to put up stuff like this. >> jimmy: right. [ laughter ] >> so we had to stop the presses. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you, lisa. better luck next time. one more thing, i want to congratulate katie hill, who was elected to congress not far from here in california's 25th district. not only did she win, katie unwittingly provided us with last night's "midterm election unintentional joke of the day." >> over and over again, over the last few days, i've had people who have said thank you for sending your knockers to my door. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: thank you, katie.

[ laughter ] and i was like, oh! >> jimmy: what is your involvement with morocco? >> none of ya business.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: so stylish. >> thanks. she was sweet enough to keep this. >> jimmy: that wasn't a coincidence. yes, get that back to etsy immediately. how are you doing? >> jimmy, where's the russian kid and the french guy? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he's right in the a french young woman -- a russian gentleman -- >> you guys going to do a little colluding tonight? [ laughter ] this is your first time on the show. >> 14 years, jimmy. >> jimmy: 16, 16. >> 16. sorry. >> jimmy: yeah. you can't just cut two years out. two years are a lot of years. >> you look so smooth out there, brother, good for you. >> jimmy: thank you.
[ cheers and applause ] i have known your brother jimmy for a wrong time. your brother is a very successful manager of comedians. >> he told me you and he send each other frozen sandwiches or something? >> jimmy: that is true. >> explain. i know what he sends from our end is our favorite hoagie from pittsburgh. >> jimmy: danny's, that's right, that's what he sent me. >> what do you send back to him? >> i sent him as i recall a z-man sandwich from oklahoma joe's in kansas city, which is now called joe's of kansas city. but it was -- we started talking about sandwiches. and then the exchange program. >> you know him better than me, i've never talked sandwiches with him and he's my brother. it strikes me as odd in the times we live. it's so troubled. you can actually still send a torpedo-shaped object through the mail? >> jimmy: yes, you can. >> and get it through to somebody else? >> jimmy: yes, absolutely. >> i assume it comes in cold to your security room, and after they x-ray it it's heated? >> jimmy: no you'd be surprised, sometimes i'm so hungry i eat it
frozen. [ laughter ] did you vote yesterday? i know you're very involved with politics. >> that's the odd thing. i probably pay -- i make jokes off politics. i worked on a rally for years. he has a political show. it's a place where i hung my hat. left to my own devices i'm not mad for politics. >> jimmy: so you've been pushed into that a little bit? >> from a career standpoint. once you're a "weekend update" anchor you make jokes about the current events. left to my own devices. i went to vote yesterday and i won't even -- i live in a surf town and they don't even give you the sticker. you have to get "i voted" tattooed above your pubic mound. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: they're tattooing people? >> it's a hell of a thing. >> jimmy: i have to tell you something. you and i have met before. >> yeah. >> jimmy: a couple of times. and you know, i was always a big fan of yours. and people, though, today are like, what? i think people get upset because you're conservative.
because you're a comedian. i think it's weird for a comedian to be conservative. unusual, i should say. they say, what happened to you? what did happen to you, dennis? [ laughter ] >> i'm socially liberal as anybody. >> jimmy: are you? >> when i look at -- i was watching backstage. this is how interesting things are. when i watch trump, he doesn't rankle me like he rankles people on your side. there are days he's a buffoon. there are days i can't believe the stuff he says. today when i watch that thing, i kind of laugh. i watch pelosi and she drives me batty. >> jimmy: interesting. >> i know on your side, i think pelosi's kind of acceptable and she says stuff like that, that drives me more crazy. all i know is this. i've met so many nice people, most of my dearest friends in the world are liberals. i refuse to go through life defining who i'm going to be friends with, who i'm going to love, who i'm going to hang with from a "d" or "r" after people's names. when i look at socially liberal,
that's when i don't dig what the conservatives do, they come off like the town elders from "footloose" and that's a drag to me. i think liberalism's like a nude beach, it sounds good till you get there. [ laughter ] [ applause ] then there's a lot of kankles and misspelled tattoos. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i want to members your special. it is very funny. i've watching this special and laughing. then we come to this. >> one thing i don't watch anymore is the oscars. instead of watching the oscars this year, i kayaked solo across the pacific with a rabid raccoon in my lap. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh. i hosted the oscars. [ laughter ] >> jimmy, honey, baby. let me finish. listen. you get show business. and i like the way that you
alternatingly, like may, are our good friend marty short, take it seriously when it deserves it, you piss on it when it deserves that too. after you finish their monologue, i think they take themselves way too serious. >> jimmy: of course. >> as much as i'd like to stick around for two hours and see what the associate sound editor on "thor: ragnarok," the way he wants me to vote, i can't do it. it's just gotten too heavy for me. >> jimmy: you actually would be surprises, he's actually quite conservative. [ laughter ] >> we met at marty short's house. >> jimmy: that's right. >> we had eight male comedians having dinner together. it was like "the real housewives of penittown reunion." like the freemasons with better grudges. >> jimmy: yeah, that was a fun night, actually. >> you would think it would be -- you'd get eight male comedians together at a dinner table would be like monkeys fighting over a premise with fondue forks. it was polite and informative.
i met you and your baby had just -- >> jimmy: we'd just had that issue. it was so much fun. in a may you were like the mayor of penistown. martin short was kind of like the governor or president of penistown. it was his town we were in. >> it was gene levy. >> jimmy: right. >> tom hanks. was hanks there? >> jimmy: he showed up. >> conan o'brien. andy samberg. a kid anymonamed nick control. you, i, john mullany. we had to have a 24/7 heimlich person on. as we ate -- it was the funniest table i've ever sat at. >> jimmy: it was a lot of fun and you were the funniest one at the table. i think it's a great message is that, comedy is stronger than politics, folks. [ cheers and applause ] thank you, jeff. oh, jeff's on vacation. anyway. it was great. >> thanks, brother. >> jimmy: your special is very funny. "fake news, real jokes" is

this is "nightline." >> tonight, jeff sessions forced to step down. the shakeup follows the historic midterm election which president trump claims is a victory. republicans gaining ground in the senate, but losing control of the house. democrats now armed with subpoena power. what does this mean for the future of the white house? and the mueller probe? a private war. the gripping story of journalist marie colvin, who gave a human face to conflict zones. >> i see it. so you don't have to. >> now brought to life in a new film, colvin's ultimate sacrifice, to shine a light in the darkest corners. >> marie colvin was fearless and a great report.
