11:35 pm
joining us. on jimmy kimmel live house speaker nancy pelosi. >> we'll see you tomorrow. >> dicky: from hollywood - it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- zach galifianakis. speaker of the house nancy pelosi. "this week in unnecessary censorship." and music from alessia cara. and now, in all honesty, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you very much. welcome. hello, hello. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thanks for coming. thanks for watching at home. thanks to those of you who joined us earlier tonight in prime time for our nba game night special. the nba finals are under way. the golden state warriors are in it again taking on the toronto raptors. this is -- [ cheers and applause ] this is big for the players on both of those teams because you though, if they don't do well on
11:36 pm
their nba finals they won't be able to get into a good college. [ laughter ] the president has not weighed in on this match-up yet, but i can't think of any two places he'd be rooting for less than canada and the bay area. it's like choosing between a canker sore and chlamydia for him. [ laughter ] but the president did weigh in on everything else today. yesterday as you know robert mueller made a statement which gave trump something to get worked up about. he was up bright and early today ranting and raving. it was a category 5 tweetstorm today. [ laughter ] during which he inadvertently made a bigly admission. he wrote "russia, russia, raur. that's all you heard at the beginning of this witch hunt hoax. and now russia has disappeared because i had nothing to do with russia helping me to get elected." so russia did help you get elected! [ applause ] i'm interested in this because he -- he knows we're seeing his
11:37 pm
tweets, right? is it possible all this time he thought he was texting with eric? because -- [ laughter ] and by the way, if you want everyone to stop talking about russia, maybe don't start a tweet with "russia, russia, russia." saying it three times like you're trying to summon beetlejuice or something. that was at 8:00 a.m. less than an hour later he wanders out on the white house lawn to say russia did not help him get elected. >> did russia help you get elected? >> no, russia did not help me get elected. you know who got me elected? you know who got me elected? i got me elected. russia didn't help me at all. russia, if anything, i think helped the other side. >> jimmy: now, listen, i know it's a little confusing. let me break it down in terms we can all understand. basically, russia is lori loughlin. trump is her daughter. and the election was a rowing scholarship to usc. do you understand in [ cheers and applause ] the president also fielded
11:38 pm
questions on the subject of impeachment. and that didn't make him happy either. >> do you think they're going to impeach you? >> i don't see how. they can because they're possibly allowed, although i can't imagine the courts allowing it. i've never gotten into it. i never thought that would even be possible, to be using that word. to me it's a dirty word, the word impeach. it's a dirty filthy disgusting word. >> jimmy: that's right. and he knows dirty filthy disgusting words. [ laughter ] in fact, he's on tape saying a lot of them on a bus. [ cheers and applause ] but trump was in full super villain mode this morning insisting falsely that robert mueller found him innocent and screaming over the sound of a helicopter. it was like a scene out of "ram "rambo: first blood 2." >> so he said essentially you're innocent. i'm innocent of all charges. and you know the thing that nobody brings up, there was no crime. they're saying he's obstructing something and there was no
11:39 pm
crime. and nobody brings it up. also someday you ought to read a thing called article 2. read article 2. which gives the president powers that you wouldn't believe. >> jimmy: it gives him the power to smell kentucky fried chicken from blocks away. [ laughter ] read article 2. [ cheers and applause ] you know what? he tells a lot of lies, but the biggest lie of all may be claiming to have read article 2 of the constitution. [ laughter ] that did not happen. the president's also pushing back hard against reports that the white house instructed the navy to hide the "uss john mccain" from his view when he was in japan last weekend. reportedly, the white house asked that the "uss mccain" which is a warship named after the late senator from arizona be hidden because it might upset president baby hands. [ laughter ] he even gave the sailors who wear the "uss john mccain" cap the day off. now, trump claims he didn't know anything about this. and i actually believe him for
11:40 pm
once. but that's the thing. his staff is so abundantly aware of the fact that he's insane they had to move a warship named after an american hero and tell the sailors who work on it to hit the road because they were worried that if he saw it the ship would hit the fan. [ laughter ] that's what -- [ applause ] that's what we're -- what they've dealing with. but i guess that's how you have to handle a very stable genius. you know? [ laughter ] we have a great show for you tonight. from "baskets," his very funny show on fx, zach galifianakis is here with us. [ cheers and applause ] and from the house of representatives, which is not a show, though it siemz seems like it is, speaker nancy pelosi is with us. [ cheers and applause ] really i hope she brought her gavel with her. do you think she travels with gavels? i don't know. at disneyland tomorrow i don't know if you know about this but they're having the grand opening of star wars galaxy's edge.
11:41 pm
[ cheers and applause ] this is basically -- do we bring in an extra load of nerds today? [ laughter ] it's basically "star wars" land. it's said to be a totally immersive star wars experience. you can stand in line to buy a chur roe just like a remember of the rebel alliance would. [ laughter ] there is a millennium falcon ride, a custom light saber shop, a custom droid shop. you can drink in the star wars cantina. and the best part is it's all totally free. no, i'm kidding. it costs a lot. you may have to sell your children to get in this. [ laughter ] you also have to have a reservation to get in which is almost impossible to get because it's so popular. they think the place is going to be filled to capacity for -- at this point it would be quicker to just become an astronaut and go to actual space than to try to get in there. i also mentioned that tonight was game 1 of the nba finals. and this is the time of the year when we have basketball on the brain. so i decided to pick the one of the all-time greats, karl
11:42 pm
malone. he's a 14-time nba all-star. he makes a hell of a squirrel stew too. i sat with karl to ask his thoughts on an important subject. and once again, the mailman delivered. ♪ >> jimmy: i'm here with karl malone, the hall of famer. he's a bad-ass. karl, in your opinion, what is the dumbest animal? which one -- >> cow. >> jimmy: the cow? >> yes. >> jimmy: why do you say the cow? >> it can be a fricking monsoon, and a cow is looking up. >> jimmy: why do you think they do that? >> i have no idea. >> jimmy: there you have it. the dumbest animal is the cow. >> no. no. in my opinion. >> jimmy: according to karl malone. i'm not arguing with you. >> you seem like you are. you seem like you're arguing with me.
11:43 pm
>> jimmy: i would never, ever argue with you. >> you waited all this time get me here and you're arguing with me now? >> jimmy: i'm not arguing with you now. if i were to argue with you it would make me the dumbest animal. >> no, no. >> jimmy: still the cow? >> yeah. you're a pretty nice species. >> jimmy: thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thanks to karl malone and apologies to cows. one more thing before we forge ahead. it is thursday night which means it's time to bleep and blur the big tv moments of the week whether they need it or not. it is "this week in unnecessary censorship." [ cheers and applause ] >> we concluded that we would, would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president [ bleep ] a [ bleep ]. >> so the key there obviously for barr is this butt [ bleep ] sort of causality. >> the spotlight quickly turned to north korea as the president [ bleep ] the japanese prime minister. >> my daughter's rolling her eyes right now. she's like dad, no more [ bleep ] jokes please. >> [ bleep ]ing.
11:44 pm
>> [ bleep ]ing. [ bleep ]ing. f [ bleep ] [ bleep ] k-i-n. >> correct. >> i'd now like to [ bleep ] my husband. your commander in chief. >> i'm going to ask you to stand right where you're at. those of you who raised your hand. just be brave. give the devil a big black [ bleep ]. come on. >> i've got to say the [ bleep ] fest right next to the stadium is outstanding too. and it is free. >> and i'm going to roll this up and put it in my [ bleep ]. it doesn't take up any space, ladies. >> where am i? >> you're in the hospital, silly. you broke your [ bleep ]. >> the doctor said it was the most tiny dried out underused [ bleep ] he'd ever laid eyes on. >> somebody cut it out. want to see it? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we've got a big show tonight. we've got music from alessia cara. the speaker of the house nancy pelosi is here. from "american idol" lane hardy is sitting in with the cletones.

[ laughter ] i mean, i drove a volkswagen golf here. [ laughter ] [ applause ] but i can't wait to hear what fancy pelosi has to say. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you know the best part
11:53 pm
of the volkswagen golf is i know that there's an 85% you really did drive a volkswagen golf here. >> i'd say it's a 100% chance. [ laughter ] 100%. >> jimmy: last week i got to see you and david letterman. you sat down for an interview with david letterman. it was kind of a -- it was just like an industry event. and it was a lot of -- did you have fun with that? >> i did. he interviewed me for something. and still i don't even know what it is. but -- >> jimmy: well, his netflix show -- >> i hear he has a show on netflix. >> jimmy: he does, yes. >> but somehow -- anyway, he interviewed me. you were there. it was a long -- it was like an hour and 20 minutes. you know, i never know what to talk about. after the interview he handed you an envelope. >> jimmy: well -- >> right? >> jimmy: no. he handed you an envelope. >> i thought -- >> jimmy: he showed it to me first. >> okay. so mr. letterman hands me this envelope after i'd done thint view with him. and in my mind i thought oh,
11:54 pm
it's going to be -- i don't know, a massage gift certificate. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: can i tell you something? that's 100% what i thought it was going to be too. >> or like a fancy -- i don't know. it was like a long business envelope. >> jimmy: yeah, it was like in a hotel envelope. >> and i get it. and i can see he's still looking at me, mr. letterman. and i open it. and it's just the lyrics to "free bird." [ applause ] he didn't even sign it. and he's looking at me across the room like pretty good gift, right? it is the best thing. it's the best thing i've ever gotten. >> jimmy: my favorite thing about it was that it was on two pages. there aren't that many words to free bird. it woz a tas a two-pager. so impossible for framing. but will you frame that? >> i will frame it. >> jimmy: you will put that up in your home. >> yes. i was very honored that he -- >> jimmy: did you send him a thank you note for that gift? >> he called me after the show.
11:55 pm
>> jimmy: oh. >> to thank me again. and it was so nice. and i don't know. i got nervous talking to him on the phone for some reason. and i tried to be funny. and i hear him say to his assistant as i'm trying to do this. he goes, "oh, god, i'm stuck in the middle of a bit with zach galifianakis." [ laughter ] and i could tell he was trying to get off the phone. and i hung up on him. i go, okay, i'll just call you tomorrow. and i hung up. [ laughter ] knowing i'll never talk to him again. >> jimmy: it was fun watching you guys talk. i know you said it was uncomfortable for you. but it was a lot of fun. i wished it was longer. it went right by for me. >> it was too long. way, way too long. >> jimmy: it was not too long. you've been a guest -- how many times have you been here, would you guess? do you have any idea? >> how many times have i -- >> jimmy: been on this show. >> oh, man. i've had so many projects over the years. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you want to know the answer? >> yes. >> jimmy: you've been a guest on
11:56 pm
this show 167 times. no, i just made that up. [ laughter ] >> 20? >> jimmy: more than that. definitely. >> 21. >> jimmy: because there was a time -- it's not an auction. there was a time that we had weird combinations of guests. and i was going through some old photographs, and i found one. i sent this to you. >> you did. >> jimmy: that is -- it might be my favorite photograph from the whole run of the show. >> this is one of those show business things. i don't put anything up in my house or any of that. i don't like to be reminded of what business i'm in. but this is -- >> jimmy: so this is from 2003. and you can see that -- there's zach. wearing the same jeans, by the way.

12:14 am
majority, the democratic majority. you got that? >> jimmy: that's true. >> since this year. and the first month government was shut down. you remember. >> jimmy: right. >> so we have -- i'm very proud of our chairman. we had a big week last week. we won three court cases and one decision by the justice department to give us documents. we have to be ready. it is -- it's a very -- our founders, i always like to say this, our founders in the darkest days of the revolution they said the times have found us. well, i think right now the times have found us. we have a defiance of the constitution of the united states.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and yet -- >> when you go down a path like impeachment, which is very divisive. it could divide the country. >> jimmy: sure. >> but let's just put it this way. we understand our oath of office to support and defend the constitution of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] apparently, the president does not understand. >> jimmy: no, i think he understands it. he just doesn't love the constitution that much. >> well, he doesn't honor the oath to protect and defend. so what we have to do, we know our responsibility, but again, because it is divisive we have to try to bring people together. e pluribus unum. i quote our founders again. from many one. they couldn't imagine how many we would be or how different we would be from each other, but

they knew we had to try in what we did to unify and not divide. so let me just say this immodestly. i probably have a better idea as to what the president has to be held accountable for than anyone. >> jimmy: have you read the mueller report? >> yes, i have. >> jimmy: even the blacked-out parts? >> no. we're calling for that. they would show it to me. but i said i'm not going to let you show it to me unless you show it to the whole country. >> jimmy: oh, interesting. i would want to see it. [ cheers and applause ] will they show it to me? >> the only person who knows better than i why this president is not above the law, why this president must be held accountable, the only person who knows better than i do is the president of the united states. he knows. he knows what his violations have been. >> jimmy: i don't think he even knows. [ laughter ] >> well, he may not care. but i think he knows. >> jimmy: i think sometimes they
12:17 am
do things and they go oh, that's not allowed? and then they kind of go back and try to figure out what it was and how they can keep it quiet. >> you know what really bugs me about that? because when you see what they say oh, i didn't know, i didn't know it was wrong to talk to russians about this, i didn't know, i say why don't -- how do you explain that to kids in the hood? when they're approached by law enforcement and they say well, i didn't realize that i was supposed to do this or that. well, they're supposed to know. but these very wealthy people with high-priced lawyers can get away with saying i didn't know it was wrong -- >> jimmy: that's why we need you to get in there and to take care of this and do something to these guys. [ applause ] here's what drives me crazy. because i believe, honestly, i believe that -- i -- you know, i know it may sound disingenuous, but i hope the president didn't do anything. i hope that when we look through
12:18 am
the mueller report it is what he says it is. we don't want that in the united states. >> exactly. >> jimmy: but you know, we don't -- we haven't had a chance to see the mueller report. it doesn't seem like -- it seems like when you subpoena somebody in congress they -- for? reason it used to be it seemed like you got subpoenaed by congress you had to go in and speak. now it's like i don't know if i'm going to do that, if i do i have? different terms -- can't you put those people in jail if they say they're not going to -- >> well, you can fine them. and you could -- let me just, because you mentioned several things. >> jimmy: yes. >> why i think the president wants us to impeach him -- >> jimmy: you think he wants us to impeach him? >> well, he knows it's not a good idea to be impeached. but the silver lining for him is then he believes that he would be exonerated by the united states senate. >> jimmy: i see. >> and there is a school of thought that says if the senate acquits you why bring charges against him in the private sector when he's no longer president?
12:19 am
so when we go through with our case, it's got to be ironclad. ironclad. >> jimmy: so because the senate leans republican you -- >> no, not leans. completely in the pocket of donald trump republican. >> jimmy: right. and you think those republican senators, even if they know he committed a crime, will side with donald trump? >> they have been every day. not one of them has spoken up. but in any case, here's the thing. just as you've said. we would hope the best for our country. this is a country whose heart is full of love. the american people are so good. we have our differences. we have to be respectful of that. and again, try to unify, not divide in what we do. but i do think the -- when we make -- as we go down this path, the american people will know the truth and the president will be held accountable. but you have to go down that path when you're as ready as you can possibly be. and you don't know that until you go down the path.
12:20 am
>> jimmy: will we be ready before the year 2020? >> yeah. >> jimmy: we will be ready? okay. the speaker of the house is here. we're going to take a break. we'll be right back with nancy pelosi. with this one little nexgard chew comes power, confidence, reassurance you're doing what's right to protect your dog from fleas and ticks for a full month. this one little nexgard chew is the #1 vet recommended protection. and it's the only chew fda approved to prevent infections that cause lyme disease. plus, it's safe for puppies. there's a lot of power in this one little nexgard chew. nexgard. what one little chew can do. now we look good, right? be! nexgard. in old navy, always! oh, gingham and dots! what's good here? nothing, i just come for the outfits. hurry in for fifty percent off all tees, tanks, shorts and swim. now, at old navy. starburst?

>> jimmy: we're back. speaker of the house snansy pelosi is here. you know, we're talking about bringing people together, and i don't know that that's possible. and i'll give you a reins why i don't know if it's possible. these opinion polls, if they are to be believed, you know, we feel like we're so divided right now. but let's put the opinion polls up on the wall. these are on various subjects. okay. option of medicare for all. 74% of americans favor that. coverage for pre-existing conditions. 75% in favor. oppose a wall. 58%. stricter gun laws, 67%. universal background checks, 97%. [ applause ] action on climate change, 66%. abortion should be legal in most or all cases, 58%.
12:26 am
and yet -- [ cheers and applause ] i mean, that's all well and good. but unfortunately, does it come down to party identification more than anything? because it would seem that if, for instance, there's a subject that 97% of americans agree on that everyone would come together and support that. >> well, let me just say elections have ramifications and we have passed many of those proposals in the house of representatives in the last three or four months since we've been there. gun safety legislation, violence against women act. we're always protecting the pre-existing condition. and thank you so much for your making it so well known, what was at stake in -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: to me there's not even -- i just don't understand anyone who feels differently. i just think that if your neighbor was in that situation you'd say yes, of course we
12:27 am
shouldn't preclude this person from health care coverage because they have something they have no control over. but what really frustrates me more than anything is that more people who represent us don't stand up and say that's true and you know what, i'm going to go with it because it's true. >> well, let me just say on health care -- and how is billy? >> jimmy: he's doing great, thank you. >> we all pray for him. >> jimmy: thank you. >> we were able to fight off the attempts by the republicans in the last -- you're not supposed to use the republican word. by the others who opposed health care. the republicans. [ laughter ] they had like 60-some attempts to abolish the affordable care act or pieces of it. really going after the pre-existing condition benefit, which is really in my view sinful. and the reason we were successful was not because of us inside outmaneuvering. it was the outside mobilization.
12:28 am
for example, we passed the gun violence protection bill to -- just for background checks. a modest bill, passed overwhelmingly, has overwhelming support. as you indicated. in the public. in the senate they've said we're going to bury it, we're the grim reaper, we're going to bury it in the graveyard of the senate. when we're depending on what abraham lincoln said. public sentiment is everything. with it you can accomplish almost anything, without it practically nothing. >> jimmy: do you feel handicapped by the fact that the president doesn't pay any regard to what is true? that he just says whatever he wants to say and the people who support him believe him even though reasonable impartial sources look at his statements -- i mean, he lied four times in one tweet today. how do you combat that? >> well, i think the american people are on to him. >> jimmy: oh, no, they're not.
12:29 am
[ laughter ] >> his 39 percenters, or let's give him 40%. for some reason he connects with them. but overwhelmingly the country is on to him. myself, i'm done with him in terms of talking about him. what we want to talk about is let's build the infrastructure of america and not have him stomp out of the room. [ cheers and applause ] let's have affordable -- we had for the people our agenda when we ran, for the people, lower health care costs by lowering the cost of prescription drugs and saving the pre-existing condition benefit. lower health care costs. bigger paychecks by building infrastructure of america in a green way to preserve the planet, to -- >> jimmy: it would be nice if we could preserve the planet because a lot of us live here on it. [ laughter ] >> and there's no plan b. the first two i think he has expressed an interest with working with us on it. >> jimmy: infrastructure. >> we'll see.
12:30 am
the third i'm not sure he's tyranted. cleaner government. lower health care, bigger paychecks, cleaner government to reduce the role of big dark money, special interest money in politics. for example, that is harming our ability to get gun safety legislation passed. that is harming our ability to get the other side of the aisle to support our climate action now legislation to save the planet. the list goes on and on. so it is important to note the importance of reducing the role of money to getting better -- >> jimmy: can i make one suggestion? the next time you go into a meeting, a negotiation with him. >> all right. >> jimmy: bring mcnuggets. [ laughter ] it's not going to hurt. thank you for being here. good luck. speaker of the house nancy pelosi, everyone. we'll be right back with alessia cara.
