"jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- brie larson, from "gotham," ben mckenzie, and music from tierra whack, and now, for the most part -- jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: that's very nice. thank you. thank you. thank you very much. i am jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. i'm glad you did. i'm glad you're here in southern california where on behalf of all of us we're sending warm wishes to those ofs you who are
11:36 pm
digging your way out of winter storm scott. why they name a scott, i don't know. probably somebody at the weather channel forgot to get their family member a present. when i hear scott, i think of a co-worker who uses the microwave to heat fish. scott isn't a storm name. it's the name of your mom's new boyfriend, not a storm. schools were closed. hundreds of flights were cancelled. about 60,000 homes lost home. thousands of mens were forced to masturbate to a catalog. there was a silver lining. that lining is a woman in brooklyn named diane. >> we getting mad because the snow, but it's waked outside. i mean, we are a bunch of weird people. if it was sum and snowing, we, it is winter. >> diane joshua has strong feelings about the snow. >> it's winter. hello. it's winter. hello.
11:37 pm
about three, four weeks ago, it was what? three degrees outside s what -- this is a heat wave. it's winter. i'm not surprised. it's winter. let's work with it. >> jimmy: that's right. it's our democratic front runner for 2020. how about we get rid of the stupid ground hog and have diane from brooklyn day instead. our president kept a crowd busy at cpac. it's a lot of very angry white people. it's the largest gathering of white people who believe vaccines are witchcraft. donald trump gave what we may look back on as his i have a dream speech. he went -- you could have left his speech, watched two episodes of "game of thrones," come back and he would still be going.
11:38 pm
to kick things offer, trump went to one of his signature moves to start it. i know there's a lot of competition. this might be the dumbest thing he does. ♪ who does that? it's -- donald trump shows more affection to flags than erik and don junior have ever gotten in their whole lives. there's always an angle. the reason she's a flag hugger is because that happens to be one of his most lucrative money moves. >> now you can own a piece of history. a flag embraced by the president of the united states, the franklin mint has made available over 100 flags, each personally nuzzled by donald trump. old glory never had it so go. your fully fondled flag has a
11:39 pm
certificate of authenticity and its own poll. three cheers for the red, white, and blue. gaze on the orange face. get your flag for only three easy installments of your social security check. call new and get a square of toilet paper from the back of the president's shoe. not available in stores. >> made in china. [ cheers and applause ] . >> jimmy: back to the speech at this thing. the speech he gave was covered every subject manageable. he even took time to talk about what a great invention tvo is. at one point he mentioned he was speaking off script. like we didn't know that, because if this was a script,
11:40 pm
must have been written for joe pesc hi in. >> we're going to go into his finances. we're going to check -- these people are sick. they're sick. unfortunately, you put the wrong people in a couple of positions, and they leave people for long time that shouldn't be there, and all of a sudden they're trying to take you out with [ bleep ]. okay? just [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: oh, he told jokes and played characters and cursed. all he needs is stories about growing up in the old neighborhood. there could be a broadway show. it was a potent combination of dementia anded a roll. he threw a lot out there during this two-our we sloebed it down for drunk donald trump. >> russia, please, if you can,
11:41 pm
get us hillary clinton's e-mails, please, russia, please. ♪ >> jimmy: someone might want to take his keys to the country away. and while trump was the main event at cpac, his personal assistant mike pence was there too, firing the crowd up with his favorite subject, battle ready astronauts. >> before the year is out, president trump will launch the sixth branch of armed forces, the united states space force. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: mother will wipe that nose off for him later, i'm sure. believe it or not the president wasn't the nuttiest speaker at cpac. this conservative political action conference, it's not conservative. there's no action. they really should call it what
11:42 pm
it is. it's an organized gathering of people who would be comfortable at intersections shouting at cars. >> i want to know who's a pedophile. >> we are all developmentally disabled in god's eyes. >> and yes, i'm looking at you, the ghost of john mccain. >> i'm sorry, miss nancy, he didn't ask you for a blank check. >> no, he didn't. >> you just let alexandria ocasio-cortez show up at my house and try to cake take my c away. >> they're trying to get rid of all the cows. >> they want to take away your hamburgers. >> faring cows. >> that's because cows fart. ♪ and the home of the brave brae >> jimmy: you know what? moo to you guys, too. in the house of representatives,
11:43 pm
the judiciary committee announced they're launching an investigation into the president's campaign, businesses, transition team and administration. the committee is requesting documents from 81 bitzs including his sons d.j., t.j., and a man known as matthew cal marry. on top of that there's a new bomb shell report from the new yorker. this is -- this alleged among other things the president ordered gary cohn to force he wanted to punish cnn which is owned by time warner. that seems like a reasonable exercise of executive authority. just using my presidential powers to squish a business i don't like. the new yorker piece sheds light on trump's relationship with fox. this is going to rock you potentially to your core. it would appear that fox news may have given donald trump
11:44 pm
preferential treatment. i know. i know. the article says that during the campaign a reporter at fox news got proof of his affair with stormy daniels and was ready to run it but one of the editors nixed the story and said rupert wants him to win so we can't run this so they hit the clear history and made a nondisclosure agreement with the report tore keep it quiet. the new yorker hit a home run. trump ranks the fox news hosts based on -- they get a number. sean hannity is a ten. 11 if he's wearing heels. red bear only gets a six. but steve ducey from "fox and friends" gets a 12. i bet steve said i will never need viagra again. he's ranked a 12. he did briefly drop to an 8 when
11:45 pm
he dared the president to stair into the solar eclipse. they said he got a heads up on questions before the kpan. he was supposedly tipped off to a question they were planning to ask during one of the primary debates. remember when trump attacked hillary for getting questions early for a town hall? basically everything trump has accused her of doing, he turns out to have done himself. i wouldn't be surprised if we found out that he had sex with bill clinton. this is the important stuff. earlier tonight on abc, you guys don't know this, but those watching at home know this is one of the great bachelor episodes of all times. a masterpiece. truly. tonight colten, our 27-year-old virgin visited the infamous fantasy suite. the first visit went to tasha. >> should you forego your individual rooms, please use this key to stay as a couple in
11:46 pm
the fantasy suite. chris harrison. >> so -- you want to get out of here and go to the fantasy suite? >> i'd love to. >> all right. >> jimmy: all right. get ready an evening of no sex and mini bar m&ms. they go to the fantasy suite. these bachelor producers, i don't know if they plan this or the gods of carbonation smiled on them. >> i thought about the first time several times and how it would go and how it would be. as men, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to perform wellwell >> damn. >> jimmy: come on. there's no -- you know that a minute before that scene there was a producer going -- so then
11:47 pm
they close the door, and the next morning, watch her expression. it kind of tells you all you need to know about how the night went. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> how are you? >> i'm tired as hell. last night was good. >> i enjoyed spending time with you. >> i enjoyed having our conversation. it was nice to have private moments. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> still a virgin, i guess. now, colten's second date was with my pick to win it all, cassie. that's when things took an unexpected turn. last week he asked cassie's dad for colten's blessing. he didn't get it. her dad didn't think it was smart to rush into it. colten tells cassie your father said no, and she didn't know her father said no. she was upset. i guess her father's opinion means a lot to her. knowing there was drama to be
11:48 pm
had, they fly cassie's dad there to surprise her. they have a chat. she decided the best thing to do was to send herself home. does anyone other than me care about that? okay. all right. so she tells all this to colten who did something that i don't think you're even legally allowed to do on this show. he said i don't care about this. you're the one i want to be this. the two-part finale isn't until next week. he told her enough with this, i'm picking you -- [ gasping ] >> jimmy: that's how i felt about it. imagine how displeased the producers were. >> he showed up at my hotel room earlier. >> today? >> yeah.
11:49 pm
>> i wish i knew. >> it's okay not to know. >> you should know. >> like, two weeks, like next week. >> forget the two weeks. >> no, no. what's he doing? >> i want it to be you at the end of this. and it's not easy going through and going on other dates with other women when all i do is think about you. >> bye. >> i love you. >> okay. all right. >> he did not just say that. >> great. because that's -- that's the show. >> i love you? really? i love you? >> what am i going to do for two weeks? [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: and then colten jumped over the wall and -- all right. we got a great show for you tonight. we have music from tierra whack, ben mckenzie is here, and we'll be right back with captain marvel herself, brie larson.
