11:35 pm
i'm dan ashley. >> i'm ama daetz. thanks for joining us. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, kathy griffin, from the los angeles lakers, anthony davis, the bachelorette, hannah b. and music from of monsters and men. and now, after all that, jimmy kimmel! ♪ [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: welcome, i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. please sit, we have no time to waste. we're already behind. thanks for joining us on a night of dating and debating here in the united states, aka bachelor nation, and we will get to that, "the bachelorette," hannah b is here for after the after the after final rose ceremony. kathy griffin is here.
11:36 pm
music from of monsters and men and anthony davis is here with us. [cheers and applause] are you ready, guillermo? >> i'm ready, jimmy. >> jimmy: guillermo is a very big lakers fan. >> yeah! [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: looks like your mustache traveled north. >> yeah, i know, a little bit. >> jimmy: earlier tonight from the fox theater the first of two democratic debates this week. it's john hickenlooper's election to lose. this was some lineup. it was more pileup than lineup. ten candidates got seven seconds each to solve the health care crisis. there were more characters than on the show "this is us" in this debate. there they are. meet the new management team at kinkos. john hickenlooper stretching on beto's foot there. that's only half of them. it's weird, they don't have a better process for thinning the
11:37 pm
herd. have 30 years of reality tv taught the democrats nothing? you can't go from 20 candidates right to one. you have to put them on an island and separate them into tribes. can't they combine steve bullock and john delaney and make them one guy? cnn has been hyping this thing for weeks now. as you can see, the fans lined up this morning in detroit were fired up. >> governor, these are your people here. >> they are. and we're fired up. we'r thrilled cnn is here and this debate, michigan, every road to the white house goes through michigan. >> jimmy: my god, you could almost fill a mini van with all those people. there were a lot of rules tonight. cnn gave the candidates 60 seconds to answer a question. 30 seconds for a rebuttal. when their time was up, a red light appeared which did put bernie sanders at a disadvantage. because usually when the light turns rid turns red he falls asleep until
11:38 pm
someone behind him honks the horn. he always looks like he's pointing at every button in the elevator at once. he has progressive ideas and is trying to reach younger voters. nowadays, if you want to attract the younger crowd all you need is the baby filter. >> we have to tarek on hke on h sexism, season season phobia. >> jimmy: a lot of people noticed that amy klobuchar and elizabeth warren were dressed alike, but they were actually dressed like michael jackson. there's maryann
11:39 pm
really? she's like in the movie trailer cats became a person. how many dream catchers was this come able to sell? president trump said he was planning to watch the debate today. he started the day with light yelling on the white house lawn. >> mitch mcconnell is a man who knows less about russia and russian influence than even donald trump, and i know nothing. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: finally common ground. the president has been taking a lot of heat for his attacks on the city of baltimore and their congressman elijah cummings, cummings is african-american and most of baltimore. but make no mistake, president trump is not racist as the least racist person in the world. >> i am the least racist person than any one in the world. >> jimmy: he has to be the least racist person anywhere in the world. what is that?
11:40 pm
does that mean his wife and kids are more racist than he is? if you do a google search for most racist person in the world, guess whose face comes up first, second, sixth and seventh out of ten and on top of not being racist, trump claims that african-americans in baltimore are happy about what he said. >> the african-american people have been calling the white house. they have never been so happy as what a president has done. but they're so happy that i pointed out the corrupt politics of baltimore. it's filthy dirty. it's so horrible. and they are happy as hell. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: mr. president, african-americans are on the phone. they're happy you said they live in hell. nothing is true. a lot of people think this racist stuff is part of trump's master plan to fire up his base. i think they're giving him too much credit. he's just an impulsive, diet
11:41 pm
coke garfield. not the president, the cat by the way. it was bachelorette finale night here on abc. [cheers and applause] bachelorette was in greece, the cradle of western civilization, which is ironic for a show that may be the end of it. hannah had to decide tonight between tyler and jed. both men met her on a mountaintop, rings in hand, proposals ready to go. this is how it went for tyler. >> i started falling in love with you the first time i got to dance with you, hold you in my arms on our first date. >> >> jimmy: let me tell you something. whether you're on a date or a raft, that sound is never a good sign. so hannah chose jed, the
11:42 pm
singer-songwriter, which is notable, because jed is the guy i predicted she would choose. i said hannah will pick jed, she did. and i am now the winner of six of the last eight. i'm 12-3. there's not, and that gift is my wife, who actually makes these predictions for me. jed proposed to hannah, and it all seemed fine until jed's secret girlfriend told her story to "people" magazine. jed dated this woman for four months even before he went up to be on "the bachelorette." they spent the night together the night before he left to go on the show. he went on the show to promote his music career. going on the bachelorette to promote your music career is like going on the voice to find a wife. this is the moment hannah should
11:43 pm
have known it wasn't going to end well. >> you've supported me, you've loved me, you've challenged me. you've moved me, and it's made me love you so, so much. >> jimmy: okay, now let's look at that again. in the end, watch his face. >> it's made me love you so, so much. >> jimmy: in poker, they call that a tell. so the engagement is off. even earlier than they are usually off. what hurts the most is jed was only in it for the publicity. who could have predicted that. that's like finding out your uber driver is only in it for the money. what about your love of picking me up and driving me places. what a round of applause he got from the crowd. >> are you ready for this? >> i am. >> okay. ladies and gentlemen, jed.
11:44 pm
[ applause ] >> jimmy: by the way, thanks for putting my face on the screen, right in the middle of that. anyway, if you watch "the bachelorette" tonight instead of the debate, congratulations. the country is doomed because of you. but for those who can't get enough, here now to tell even more all than the last time she told all, it's time for a very special after the after the after the final rose with hannah, say hello to hannah, everyone. >> thank you. >> jimmy: please, relax. you've had a lot of couch time tonight, i know. >> yeah. isn't it beautiful? look at that. everyone loves you. so i, first, before we get to you, let's start with me, because i predicted your final four would be luke p, bad by the way. peter, jed and tyler g. i was wrong on tyler g. it turned out to be tyler c, but
11:45 pm
c and g are almost the same letter. >> basically the same. >> jimmy: let's see who i picked. let's go back to the very night you were on the show. i believe the man you wind up with is -- -i forgot which one s which. is jed! that's right. and just for the record, i was right. you did pick jed. >> you were right. >> jimmy: you were wrong, but i was right. >> but, yeah. that did happen. >> jimmy: really, my wife was right. and so we all know what happened. we all saw the whole thing earlier tonight. and then they bring tyler out. and instantly, you see that, did you feel like when he came out, were you like, oh, boy, i wish i'd picked him instead? >> um, i can't really say. >> jimmy: you can tell me. you're among friends. >> i mean, i definitely had feelings for him, too.
11:46 pm
so i don't want to say that. i grew, i became a lot stronger of a woman through all that i went through, so i don't want to say i regret it, but he is pretty great. >> jimmy: and so tonight we saw, you said maybe we can go out for a drink or something. >> mm-hm. >> jimmy: did you have a drink on your way over here? >> it didn't have quite enough time to even order one from the bartender, so. >> jimmy: when is the drink going to happen, do we know? >> i mean, i just talked to him for the first time. >> jimmy: but listen, we demand action. your whole courtship was all over and done with in like six weeks, right, so we want that drink. we want you to get married and have a baby on television or something, right? >> yeah. we're going to start with a drink first, and i'll let you know when you'll be the first to know. >> jimmy: how relieved was your dad whether you told him you broke up with jed, because your dad was worried about him being able to make a living and he
11:47 pm
said don't worry, i wrote a dog food jingle and it's going to work out fine. >> no, he was worried about the jingle business. so i called my mom the other day to tell her some news and she's like, don't tell me you're back with that boy. and my dad's like, oh, hell, no! and i'm like, don't worry, don't worry. >> jimmy: did you ever get to hear the dog food jingle? >> i did. >> jimmy: did dad get to hear the dog food jingle? >> i don't think dad would have -- >> jimmy: maybe that would have won him over. you're in a state of flux now. >> yeah. >> jimmy: who do you think should be the bachelor? do you have any thoughts on that? a lot of people would think it might be tyler, but now it can't be tyler, because you're going for drinks with him. >> we'll see where the drinks go. >> jimmy: well, they go in the mouth, and then sometimes if you have too many of them, they come
11:48 pm
back out the mouth. >> we don't want that. but it's so weird, picking the bachelor from my ex-boyfriends, but. >> jimmy: do you think of them as your ex-boyfriends? what do you think of them as people who were on a show you were also briefly on? >> well, when i think of it that way. >> jimmy: yeah, think of it that way, because that is the way. these men were not your boyfriends! they, a casting director found them and brought them to you, and you kicked most of them off, right? >>dy do th >> i did do that, so i thought peter was really great. mike's great. i want them to have happiness, so. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, okay. >> maybe it will work out better for them than it did for me. >> jimmy: maybe it did work out for you. >> but i'm getting drinks. >> jimmy: it's good that you found this out sooner rather than later. >> yeah. >> jimmy: let's be honest. most of these things don't work out anyway, so you kind of
11:49 pm
accelerated the process. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i'm trying to find silver lining in all this. the silver lining is everyone in america hates jed. >> i don't want them to hate him. >> jimmy: well, they do. and most importantly of all, really, is that we picked the right guy again, and my record is just unbelievably sterling, and i have to credit my wife with that. and may i also say that if you have any other major life decisions, feel free to run them by us, okay? >> yeah. you also picked -- >> jimmy: i didn't pick him, i predicted you would pick him. i refuse to have sex with the guy. yes. thank you for being here, hannah, i'm glad this worked out for you in a really, really roundabout way. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i hope drinks with tyler go well. >> me too. we'll see. >> jimmy: you should probably just have a lot of them, okay? >> hey. >> jimmy: that's hannah, everybody. the former bachelorette.

[cheers and applause] >> that's right! and so i can't really talk to you cute tv people anymore. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> no. it's bad for i was with my squad last night, jennifer lawrence and glenn close. >> jimmy: oh, you've got a squad. >> >> wawait until i'm finished. >> jimmy: oh, you're not talking to tv people. >> it's so cute what you do with
11:57 pm
their. is is it radio or television. because you know in the film industry, it's the big screen. i don't think you've changed me. i think you're the one who's changed. [cheers and applause] what? oh, my gosh. oh, hi. hi. oh, my gosh. i forgot you were here. hi, how are you? >> jimmy: i'm fine, thank you. >> when did you start this show? >> jimmy: about an hour ago. >> that's great. >> jimmy: so anyway, let's talk about this. >> what? >> jimmy: kind of a cool idea to premiere your special, a stand-up comedy special in the movies. >> nobl wouody would buy it, be i'm toxic. a lot of people think i'm isis. not true. i worked in the gift shop for a week. it took me about two years to say that joke. >> jimmy: did anybody really believe you were part of isis?
11:58 pm
>> yes. my mother. my mother! yes, she wanted me to join a different club, as she said. because she watches fox news, and she thought it was real. she doesn't know. >> jimmy: yeah, but your mom's older and drunk a lot. we know that. >> yeah. enjoys the wine. >> jimmy: there are people who took this seriously. >> oh, there are people to this day, and one thing is because this film is being, you know, shown in so many theaters tomorrow night as part of a fathom event. this is something the kids are into. >> jimmy: a fathom event? >> they pick a movie and show it one night in a ton of theaters, so 700 theaters, i'm talking red cities, blue cities, tuscaloosa heights. everywhere, lawrence, kansas to l.a. so grab someone, how shall i say, like minded? because it's not bipartisan. it's very partisan. >> jimmy: yeah, but it's also. >> but it's a historic tale indeed.
11:59 pm
>> jimmy: it is. >> because obviously, whether or not you like that photo, and it's fine if you didn't. the president shouldn't be deciding if you're employable. and the president shouldn't decide what television shows you guys watch. that's your industry. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: yeah, is -- it actually made me mad watching it. >> really? >> jimmy: yeah, because the idea that they would penalize you, and some of the things they did to you. >> i was on the no-fly list for two months. >> jimmy: they put you on the no-fly list. >> like a terrorist for two months. then i was interrogated under oath by two federal agencies, the secret service and federal attorneys office. they opened an investigation without notifying me or letting me try to clear my name at all. so this is also unprecedented. and they were considering very seriously charging me with the crime of conspiracy to assassinate the president of the united states. >> jimmy: they told this to your
12:00 am
lawyer? >> yes, and they told me to my face. >> jimmy: they did? >> yes. >> jimmy: and did anyone snicker or anything like that? >> no, when you're being interrogated under oath by the feds there's no stickering or an opportunity for my attorney like if i screw up to pull me aside and have a moment with the client. it's a very, very serious matter. >> jimmy: was there any of this, i know, but we have to do this, just acknowledging that it's preposterous that you actually were part of any kind of conspiracy to kill anyone? >> i will say this. i am not anti-government at all after this experience. i think the fbi saved my life. i was not only on the maga bomber list, the pipe-bomb guy. but the day we filmed the concert portion of the film, the fbi did a no-knock to my house. which means it's such an imminent threat they don't call they come right over. they said during the interrogation of the mega bomber, he had shared the kill list with like-minded people.
12:01 am
it's part of my new normal, and the documentary portion of the film which i fought like a dog to put in. the stand-up concert part, i'm not going to lie, i couldn't sell it. troy miller, i made a three-hour stand-up comedy special. i was so dumb, i thought every network's going to have a record-breaking three-hour special. no one would look at a 30-second link. and i thought, when i was a little girl, we would go see comedy in the movie theater, like richard pryor. we got it into south by southwest. then when fathom decided to do the this event on tomorrow night. you can put in the theaters it's in and it will pop up. people will see it and hear the real deal and the documentary part is stuff i filmed with my iphone and my boyfriend who's also my tour manager, and we
12:02 am
live in sin! we live in sin! and it's real. it's real. >> jimmy: it's all real. it's interesting. >> but there are other funny parts that you laugh to? >> jimmy: there are many, many funny parts. we expect there to be funny parts. we don't expect to be oh, my god, this is pretty crazy. >> i really wanted to show that. i truly believe if it could happen to me, it could happen to any of you. our eyes are ail more wi little open than the day the photo was released. there's a back story and a cautionary tale. i try to make it as funny as possible. i have this great back stage run-in with stevie nicks. and i can still smell the musk. and i love her. and she's not technically a witch, but i also can't prove she isn't. so like i pepper the film with like funny stories. >> jimmy: there are a lot of celebrities involved in>> wl,it someone i used to work with in
