11:36 pm
but nothing more important than what could be the most world-shaking discovery of the century, maybe even the last two centuries. a tweet from the himalayas, where i guess they have wi-fi indicates that a legendary creature, spoken of for hundreds of years may have been found. members of the indian army believe they have evidence that proves that the previously-thought mythical abominable snowman also known at yeti is alive and well. he has a really great cooler by the way. many believe he's related to sa sasquatch. a snowy version of big foot. a team has sighted footprints close to base camp. this elusive snowman has only been sighted at the national
11:37 pm
park in the past. right and not even that, probably. but this is a photo, a not-so-great photo of the footprints. it as either a yeti footprint or rob gronkowski is on vacation in nepal. here are some more tracks leading where we don't know. seems like somebody may have followed those. they're huge footprints in the snow. this is incredible, this is history. shall we go home? yes, let's go home. this is a photo of the indian soldiers who made the discovery. it's either the soldiers or a poster for a new movie. what would happen if they found a yeti, alive? i feel like it would be in the news for about two hours, then kanye would make it into a coat or something. hey, speaking of ancient
11:38 pm
creatures, joe biden is riding high right now. according to a new cnn poll of democratic voters, biden is currently the number one choice by a lot. he's 24 points ahead of his closest competitor, bernie sanders, which could mean a showdown between biden and bernie. usually when a couple of 70-year-olds are in competition the winner is whoever yells "bingo" first. sleepy was up bright and early today on "good morning, america" where robin roberts asked if he has a motto. >> the president has a motto "make america great again." do you have one? >> "make america moral again". >> jimmy: make america moral again is a nice sentiment. but it is an absolutely terrible hat. joe mama. meanwhile, president trump is doing everything he can to hide
11:39 pm
his financial statements. he filed a lawsuit yesterday to block deutsche bank and capital one from handing over his financial records to congress. these are personal and business records that congress issued subpoenas for. but, you know, the president, he treats subpoenas like they're wedding vows. they mean nothing to him. the plaintiffs in the suit include donald trump, his daughter ivanka and his sons, eric and djtj. they're all suing together. unisom families go camping together, some play board games. others -- do you think tiffany feels good or bad about being left out of the family lawsuit? probably good. and by the way, suing your banks to keep them from sending your records to congress is not a great look for the president of the united states. it's like suing the school to keep them from sending your parents your report card. this is quite a conundrum for the banks who are between a rock and hard place. it's illegal for them to ignore
11:40 pm
a subpoena, but they're also being sued. we got in touch with the trump family lawyer and surprisingly he agreed to answer questions. please welcome larry harding, attorney at law. hello, larry. >> hi there, jim. >> jimmy: thank you for joining us. i have a few questions i'd really love to -- >> before we start, i have to ask, are you wearing a wire? >> jimmy: am i wearing a wire? this is airing on television. >> sorry, force of habit. i always ask. you never know. any who, what do you want to know? >> jimmy: i want to know why the trump family is suing their banks and refusing to disclose their financial information. >> jim, it's really simple, really. we just feel some things are better left a mystery.
11:41 pm
>> jimmy: a miss. >> i >> that >> yeah, a mystery is something that remains a secret, that remains unknown. >> jimmy: the banks got subpoenaed by congress, and you're telling them not to comply with the subpoena. on what legal grounds can you do that? >> legal grounds? this isn't about the law. it's about good old-fashioned manners. frankly, when it comes to money shmoney, we think it's impolite to pry. it's gauche. >> jimmy: it's gauche? >> maybe the gauchiest. >> jimmy: don't we have a right to know what our president is up to? >> no, of course not. you people have a right to mind your own gosh darn beeswax. that's our motto. we even put it on a sign. isn't that terrific? >> jimmy: that's terrific but i'm not sure it's going to hold
11:42 pm
up in court. >> i think my friends abraham and george can be mighty persuasive. >> jimmy: you're going to bribe the judge with $6? >> that's just a down payment. mr. trump says he'll pay me the rest when he's out of office. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, yeah. >> speaking of which, did i ask, are you a cop? you know, you have to tell me if you're a cop. >> jimmy: i'm not a cop. thank you, larry, that's larry harding, the trump family lawyer. >> did i mention our motto? >> jimmy: yes, you did mention the motto. >> mind your own gosh darn beeswax. >> jimmy: a nice man. this could be good news for donald trump, mike pompeo said russia will continue to try to interfere in our elections for a long time. he said we should expect that in 2050 the russians will still be at it. that makes sense. of course the russians want to
11:43 pm
meddle in our elections. the only other hobbies they have are making beet soup and freezing to death. they want us to elect the worst possible person. and they knocked it out of the park. it's like if coca-cola tricked pepsi into hiring gary busey as their ceo. researchers believe in 50 years there could be more dead people on facebook than live people. they predict that 1.4 billion facebook users will die before the end of the century. and their facebook pages will not. they'll live on. basically, facebook is turning into an army of white walkers and mark zuckerberg is the knight king. are we still going to have to wish all the dead people a happy birthday? right now the place for dead people is florida. florida is commonly known as god's waiting room.
11:44 pm
and last night we had a great moment from "this week in florida." tonight we get another nugget from the sunshine state. it's time for another edition of "this week in florida." >> a man in ft. walton beach is accused of beating up a mattress. deputies say his girlfriend was in the room. o he thought she was cheating on him. he beat the mattress with a bedpost because he thought the man she was cheating with was inside the mattress. he later admitted he had been smoking meth. >> jimmy: it all makes sense when you explain it. pope francis, you know the guy with the -- he's taking a stand on an unusual subject. he addressed a group of barber, stylists and beauticians and warned them to stay away from gossip. he said treat your customers with kindness and courtesy,
11:45 pm
offering them a good word and encouragement. that's no fun, is it? i mean, did the pope just spend the weekend binge watching old episodes of "the andy griffith show"? i wonder what beauty professionals think of it, so i asked my long-time barber, harry stewart to comment. how are you doing? >> hello, there, jimmy. you're looking a little shaggy. you need to come in for a trim, you dirty hippie. >> jimmy: what did you think of the pope's statement that barbers and stylists need to stop gossiping? >> i think his holiness is absolutely right. i hate gossip. you know who used to love to gossip? joan rivers, and look what happened to her. >> jimmy: did you know joan rivers? >> did i know joan rivers? >> jimmy: yeah, did you know
11:46 pm
joan rivers? >> i know everyone, i've been styling hollywood's biggest stars for years. you've seen my wall of fame. >> jimmy: yeah, take us through that, that is some. >> here i am to start things off with dr. bill cosby. haven't seen him in a while. that cbs fella, harvey weinstein, mr. r. kelly, and you know, jimmy, if you give me that picture i keep asking you for, i got a nice spot for you right here. >> jimmy: you know what, harry, i think i'll be fine without having my picture up on the wall. you know, you may want to take some of those down. >> you are a hoot, jimmy, always with a joke. >> jimmy: i'm not really joking. harry, are you drinking the stuff you sterilize the combs
11:47 pm
in? >> i sure am, it's called barbercide. >> jimmy: i don't know that you are supposed to drink that. >> oh, that's good. my little piece of blue heaven. you know that song? >> jimmy: yes, i'm glad you're not gossiping. >> you know our shop motto? >> jimmy: what is the shop mo motto? >> mind your own gosh beeswax. hey, jimmy. did you noknow elton john is a gay? >> jimmy: yes, i did, and that's gossip, exactly what the pope was saying not to do. well, thank you, harry. we have a good show for you tonight. we have music from a cappella music tonight. that means no music at all. it was a lot cheaper for us.

11:57 pm
whole life. >> i would beg to differ. you probably just didn't know you were having it. all the more reason four yr youo come along. we were skiing down the mountain. i got four hours sleep. i started shredding. i looked to the side, and i was like, i'm going 35 miles per hour, i'm going fast. this is the best skiing i've ever done. i want to do powder skiing the rest of my life. how do you, if you want to slow down just the slightest, and literally, i don't know, yard sale, you know that term yard sale? yard sale. i turned into a yard sale. >> jimmy: oh, you were all over the place. >> i was all over the place. i was like my skis were over here, one ski came off but the one with the acl was bent into the snow and i was facing upwards. >> jimmy: who brought you down
11:58 pm
the hill? >> geoff stults came down. he was like, what's up, you all right? looks like you hurt your knee, and i was like, i don't know. let me stand up on it, and i stand up and it immediately gives out and i fell back down. then everyone came down and was like hey, are you okay? like that looked, like bad. no, no, i think i'm fine. i didn't know it was that bad. then dylan came by, and dylan, he didn't stop, actually. >> jimmy: your brother? >> yeah, he didn't stop. he was just like whatever [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: is he still living with you? >> he is. joi >> jimmy: he is. >> but he also works with my production company. >> jimmy: with support like that, you know. >> he's doing a really, really good job. >> jimmy: what is he doing? >> he is getting me hurt. >> jimmy: does he help you, like when you can't walk or you're
11:59 pm
laid up or whatever? >> no. >> jimmy: he doesn't. >> that's crossing the line, i think. oh, he brought me a sandwich. but i was down for like six weeks. >> jimmy: one sandwich. >> yeah. >> jimmy: well, yeah. you got to spread it out, then, huh? >> in fact, he wasn't even there during my recovery. he was actually at the beach, my other house. by the beach. >> jimmy: it's time to release dylan into the wild. he's got to make it on his own now. >> no, no. >> jimmy: no? >> so i show up at the doctor's office. and i get an mri, because it's not hurting but, yeah, it was hurting. very uncomfortable. >> jimmy: sure. >> as i was walking, as i got the mri read to me, i got the mri, and this is like the very next day, i flew home and got it the next day. the doctor comes in and he's like, this is where, on the way down the mountain, they are like, you can minorly tear your
12:00 am
acl or majorly, what you don't want is a disconnect. maybe you just strained it. i get to the doctor's office, and he shows me the picture of the x-ray, and i look at it, and i can see the line of where like my acl used to be. and then the other line of where the other side is, and then it looked like a bomb went off. like literally just disconnected, like not, nothing touching. there was no way it was coming back together. so it was a pretty nice text to be able to call my friends with a picture of that. i didn't say anything, just a picture of the x-ray, like what's up now, bitches? >> jimmy: yeah, it's definitely time to kick dylan out of the house. when we come back we're going to see you do some serial killing. not him, but you know what i mean. we'll be right back. >> dicky: portions of jimmy kimmel live are brought to you by zillow. re-imagine your way home. ricky e
