[cheers and applause] i want, i want you to know, and
11:36 pm
i want each one of you to know that you are accepted into this audience on your own merits, and not because your parents paid somebody to get you in here. you did this yourself, and you should be really proud. i'm sure you have been following this college admissions scandal, known as operation varsity blues, which is of particular interest, because some of the parents who were charged are famous. felicity huffman, the actress is one. she pleaded guilty last week to conspiracy to commit fraud, and she could be facing jail time. prosecutors are seeking a sentence of four to ten months for her. i don't know, maybe when she's in prison she can do some good. maybe she can help some of her fellow inmates cheat on their geds. felicity huffman is married to another actor, william h. macy, who i guess is about to get the house all to himself. but it is kind of crazy. she's going to prison and he
11:37 pm
isn't, because she's the one who took the time to do the paperwork. can you imagine the conversations those two must be having about this? my wife gets mad when i leave a dish in the sink, okay? huffman admitted to paying $15,000 to improve her daughter's s.a.t. score. i think they should make it more interesting. put the parents in jail until the kid gets a perfect score on the s.a.t. [cheers and applause] maybe like once every ten days they can take the test, and then, and on then, might take a week, might take 30 years. we don't know. meanwhile the mueller report is coming. tomorrow we finally get to see the highly anticipated and highly-redacted release. how much will be hidden? we do not know. political analysts are going to try to read through these redactions like teenage boys trying to watch porn on
11:38 pm
scrambled cable in 1985. don't worry, the department of justice september out justice sent out a handy video to help. >> excited to read the mueller report? us too. we made a few minor redactions. material related to national security will be redacted in black. grand jury testimony in red. information about the president's skin care regimen in orange. green for money laundering, dark green for more money laundering. anything for russian hookers, yellow, and any references to the president's weight will be covered in globs of barbecue sauce. the mueller report, you'll take what we give you, and you'll [ bleep ] like it, okay? [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: and with all this going on, this is what was on
11:39 pm
the president's mind. he weighed in last night with a prediction and nicknames for his opponents. he wrote, i believe it will be crazy bernie sanders versus sleepy joe biden as the two finalists to run. is joe biden sleepy? i don't know, to me, he always looks like he's been up for two days eating cigarettes. and the president has already used sleepy on chuck todd. he used it on ben carson. he used it on graven carter and jeb bush. trump thinks anyone who doesn't main line adderall and kwocoke day is sleepy. crazy bernie and sleepy joe aren't even mean. they sound like characters in a bruce springsteen song, you know? i'm always interested in how the president comes up with these nicknames. we reached out to the west wing and believe it or not we got a response from trump's communication staff. he's agreed to speak with us
11:40 pm
tonight. please say hello to to to to too the reason i contacted you, i was wondering who comes up with all the nicknames trump gives his opponents. >> i do. >> jimmy: how do you come up with these nicknames? >> i start with a name and then give it the dwarf test. >> jimmy: what is the dwarf test? >> i sigh ee if the name works one of the seven dwarfs. sleepy, grumpy, haven't had a sneezy yet. saving that one for beto o'rourke. >> jimmy: oh, does beto o'rourke sneeze a lot? >> does beto sneeze? that's the worst-kept secret in washington.
11:41 pm
the man has hay feever. >> jimmy: i did not know that. >> now you do. that's what makes these nicknames so great. >> jimmy: i guess so. >> anyhow, after i give the dwarf test, i give a classic, something like low iq or crazy or sometimes i'll call someone whacky, if i'm feeling naughty. >> jimmy: and are you feeling naughty right now? >> i am. >> jimmy: do you think these nicknames will actually help trump win reelection. >> let me ask you something, how's your friend crooked hillary enjoying life notiin th woods? >> jimmy: i don't think she's enjoying it at all. >> i don't think she is, thanks to me. >> jimmy: do you have anything for the new guy, pete buttigieg? >> nothing basically funny about the name. but, as a matter of fact, i've been thinking about calling him
11:42 pm
sneaky pete. >> jimmy: sneaky pete. >> did you know he's a gay? >> jimmy: well, yes, i did. he's very open about that, about it. >> he is? >> jimmy: yeah. >> why? >> jimmy: why wouldn't he be? >> why wouldn't he be? because he's gay. what the hay already with this stuff? >> jimmy: well, it's -- >> in my day, if you were gay, you kept that zipped up. >> jimmy: it's a different day now. thank you for talking with us and shedding some insight on this for us. >> don't mention it, squinty jim. >> jimmy: oh, come on. >> did i catch you in the middle of a nap? >> jimmy: no. no. thank you, len. squinty jim. that's my pirate name. hey, this is a national emergency the president needs to do something about.
11:43 pm
have you seen the leaked "avengers" footage? "end game" doesn't come out until friday, but footage has been making the way around online. and those who directed the film are asking for respect for the films and pointed out if they wanted the movie spoiled they would have put matt damon in it. they could have done it. but they said please. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: i don't want to ruin it, but my question about the avengers and the marvel universe is, do the olympics exist? and if so, why aren't you guys dominating those events? if i was spiderman, i'd also be on the lakers. that's how i look at it. anyway, please don't spoil "avengers end game somethin". and also, i haven't seen "the sixth sense". here's something for you if you want to drop a few million

guy's cat. there's a lot of pent up weather anger, and there's more. >> now what is that? okay. we need to verify that. that could potentially be a tornado debris signature there. on storm track doppler radar, you know what happened, john? in the five minutes we didn't have radar data, it produced a tornado. >> jimmy: thanks for the tornado, john. [ applause ] poor john. john might want to post his resume on linked in right now. so we, we decided to do an experiment, you know, we got coachella coming this week, and we thought we'd do something educational tonight. millennials are very good when it comes to stuff like posting selfies, but there are some skills that they lack. so we went out on the street this afternoon and asked some people, can you open a can of
