[ laughter and applause ] hey guys, i thought this was cool. hillary clinton joined twitter this week. [ cheers ] pretty cool. and right after her first tweet, president obama tweeted her his own welcome to her. it was very nice. it looks like things are already getting a little competitive. look at this. here's obama's tweet. he said, "i'd like to welcome @hillaryclinton to twitter." that's nice. but i'm not sure hillary liked it because look her response. she said, "thanks for welcoming me, didn't know you were the president of twitter
#yeahiwentthere." [ laughter ] >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: a lot of tension. here's how the president responded. he said, "not the president of twitter, just the leader of the free world #bittermuch #don'tmesswiththebest." >> steve: wow. [ applause ] >> jimmy: this seems to be escalating. and here's what hillary said after that, "yeah, well at least i don't spy on people #booyah #sorrynotsorry." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: sorry, not sorry. here's obama's reply, "want me to show you some of bill emails? #noyoudon't #seriouslyyoureallydon't." [ laughter ] >> steve: wow. but wait! >> jimmy: here's hillary's last tweet, "sure and i'll show you how to run a country #checkmate #2016 #ladyprez." >> steve: whoa! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: -- on twitter, it's always about twitter. >> steve: always. >> jimmy: everybody's talking about this. in the recent interview with the
"new york times," kanye west compared himself to steve jobs, calls himself the nucleus of culture and also said he was the michael jordan of music. i don't know if he's the michael jordan of music, but he's definitely the dennis rodman of crazy talk. [ laughter ] this was sweet. last night on "america's got talent." one contestant proposed to his girlfriend on stage right after his audition. though, i am not sure it went how he expected. check it out. [ screams and applause ] >> will you marry me? [ buzzer ] >> jimmy: no, that's -- you don't. >> steve: oh! >> jimmy: shouldn't have done -- they shouldn't have done that. waited for the answer. [ applause ] >> steve: howie. >> jimmy: yeah. some tech news here. this week, apple introduced a new laptop that supposedly has a an all day battery. yep, and how it works is don't turn on your laptop all day. [ laughter ] it works. speaking of apple though, yesterday at the worldwide developer's conference, apple unveiled a male voice option for digital assistant siri.
yeah, of course the male siri and the female siri handle things a little differently. for instance, if i were to say, "siri, open google maps." here's the female siri's response. [ female digital voice ] >> here is google maps for you. >> jimmy: and here's the male siri's response. [ male digital voice ] >> i don't need to look at a map, i know where i'm going. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: listen to this, there is talk that one direction is trying to win over justin bieber's fans who aren't happy with bieber's recent behavior. those guys from one direction better be careful or this could result in the worlds most adorable first fight. [ laughter ] and finally, new jersey governor chris christie is facing criticism after deciding to hold a special election to fill the states vacant senate seats in mid-october rather than waiting until the general election in november. you know, i was going to make a joke about this story but i don't think it needs a joke. i think it needs to be slow jammed.
you know what i'm talking about tariq? [ cheers ] >> tariq: yes, jimmy. i think the same. we're gonna slow jam this news. >> jimmy: that's right. i want to slow jam this news and i'm not the only one. [ cheers and applause ] >> hi, i'm chris christie, governor of the great state of new jersey and i too would like to slow jam the news. >> jimmy: hit me three times! ♪ [ slow music plays ] >> as you know, new jersey has a vacant seat in the u.s. senate. now, i had the choice to either appoint a hand-picked replacement or let the people vote on their new senators. as a governor i have a responsibility to ensure the people have a voice in washington. that's why this special election is hugely important.
>> jimmy: aww yeah. [ laughter and applause ] chris christie's about to give new jersey a huge election. [ laughter ] and he's putting it in the hands of the people. so, watch out. because it's coming prematurely. [ laughter ] october 16th to be exact. ♪ october 16th chris christie wants to hear ♪ ♪ what you have to say so do the people at the nsa ♪ [ laughter ] >> the decisions that need to be made in washington are too great to be determined by an appointee for 18 months. what we don't need is another unelected politician just sitting around the congress, whether it's in the senate or the house of representatives. >> jimmy: mm-mm-mmm.
take it from my man, the love gov. [ laughter ] when he sits around the house of representatives, he really sits around the house of representatives. [ laughter ] chris christie wants to make sure the next new jersey senator works long and hard. ♪ got to work long and hard you need to work hard to be a leader ♪ ♪ but not quite as hard as anthony wiener ♪ [ laughter and applause ] >> as governor, i won't allow political insiders and party elites to determine who republican and democratic nominees will be this fall. in this special election, it's not about playing politics. it's about doing the right thing. >> jimmy: you ain't lying, cc.
now look at you, sounding all presidential like. you got something you want to announce on the show right now? [ music ends ] >> come on, jimmy. you think i would come on this show to announce a presidential run? >> jimmy: say whatever you want, but we know in 2016 -- >> tariq: ♪ baby you were born to run! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] [ slow music plays ] >> look -- now look, i know this election is going to cost taxpayers the money, but these costs can't be measured against the value of having an elected member of the united states senate. that's why i'm throwing my full weight behind this decision. >> jimmy: oh, oh, come on. come on now, christie cream donut. come on. how you gonna be setting me up like that? it's too easy, it's not even funny.
>> isn't that what your audience says every night? [ audience ohs ] >> jimmy: ouch. >> yeah, that's right, it hurts. so step off, brother. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: isn't that what your bathroom scale says every night? [ laughter ] >> tariq: ♪ bada bing bada boom ♪ >> this election ensures the people will choose. time to make it rain in the voting booth. >> tariq: ♪ the polls with be closing someone will be chosen it's time for the vote now no time for apposing ♪ ♪ one person will win and another will lose ♪ >> jimmy: and that is how we slow jam the news. >> oh yeah! >> jimmy: give it up for governor chris christie and the roots. ♪

[ cheers and applause ] hey! >> jimmy: i've known those kids for awhile. i love those guys. >> steve: lovely. >> jimmy: they're cool. hey, you guys, last week something huge happened. i know you know what i'm talking about. a major milestone was reached, justin bieber got his 40 millionth follower on twitter. that's right. [ scattered applause ] yeah, that's the reaction i wanted. thank you, so much. [ laughter ]
and, you know, i was looking at his tweets. and i noticed that even though some of them were really short and simple, they were getting a crazy amount of re-tweets. so, for instance, last week i saw him tweet out, "having fun." and look at this, ended up getting almost 75,000 re-tweets. "having fun." -- no punctuation. nothing. just, "having fun." >> steve: and not the band fun.? >> jimmy: no. i don't know. "having fun." so, i thought -- we thought it would be fun to have one of our writers, arthur, tweet out the exact same thing as justin bieber once every day this week and see who gets more re-tweets, him, or justin bieber. so, let's bring him out and see how he did. arthur, come on out, buddy. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: arthur meyer. arthur, good to see you again. >> you too. >> jimmy: now, it's wednesday. so i just want to -- now which justin bieber tweet did you go with today? >> okay, well, recently i saw justin bieber tweeted, "live life full." >> jimmy: yeah, "live life full." there you go, yeah. >> so, today i also tweeted "live life full." [ light laughter ]
>> jimmy: all right now -- yeah. now, since we've been doing this on the show the past couple of days, you've actually been getting more and more re-tweets. >> yeah, it's crazy, i usually only get like two or three re-tweets, but lately, people are really responding to the tweets that i'm stealing from justin beiber. >> jimmy: yeah. it sounds like you might be pretty close today. who knows, maybe even you'll beat him. now, so far, how many re-tweets do you have for "live life full"? [ drum roll ] >> i have -- 307 re-tweets! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's a lot of re-tweets. >> it's really good! >> jimmy: yeah. and how many did justin bieber get for the exact same tweet? >> justin bieber got -- 130,989. >> jimmy: re-tweets. wow. >> re-tweets, yeah. [ sad tuba ] >> jimmy: that is a lot more than 307. >> yes, it is. >> jimmy: but that's still a lot of re-tweets for "live life full" for you, arthur. that's great. now, arthur, do you live life full? >> no, i don't. >> jimmy: yeah, okay. well, there you go. [ laughter ] arthur meyer, re-tweeting the same thing as justin bieber. [ applause ]

about you. i think it's cool that you're doing that. and that's this friday. that's gonna be very, very interesting. >> this friday in chicago. it's gonna be great. >> jimmy: now, how's your family taking -- 'cause you're, like, super famous now, you know? i just read some poll, like, 80% of america loves you. everyone loves you. >> that 80% is not in my house, unfortunately. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: come on. no! >> no, you know, listen. the family -- it's taken some adjustment. my 9-year-old, bridget, said that her least favorite words in the world are, "i hate to interrupt the governor, but --" because she said, "if they really hate to interrupt, why are they interrupting?" you know? it's, like, that's what a 9-year-old thinks. so we go out to dinner, it gets a little bit hairy sometimes. but the family's adjusted really well, and i think are really enjoying the stuff we get to do. >> jimmy: but prince harry came to new jersey. >> ah, yes. >> jimmy: prince harry came. >> yes, he did. we were hanging with prince harry. >> jimmy: i mean, come on. hanging with prince harry. that's my favorite show on mtv, yeah. "hanging with prince harry," yeah. >> we're working on that. it's in development. >> jimmy: you should, yeah. what did you do with prince harry? >> well, you know, interestingly, prince harry, when he was serving in afghanistan, had a friend of his who he served with who's an army
reservist from the jersey shore. and that guy -- they got to be friends, and that guy had his house destroyed in hurricane sandy. so prince harry wanted to come and see everything for himself. so when he came to america, he wanted to do a stop at jersey shore, and he wanted firsthand to see the destruction that got on. and so, you know, i got to take prince harry around. and as you might imagine, jimmy, my 17-year-old daughter very interested in that part of daddy's job that day. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. all of a sudden, yeah. she's really into it. >> then all of a sudden, sarah. yeah, there she is. see there. >> jimmy: there, and mary pat right there. hey, guys. hey, nice to see you.

[ cheers and applause ]
and he's a great guy. but you -- and he's new jersey. he's from new jersey. but, you guys, politically, you don't agree on all the same topics. >> not on the same page. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. but this year, you actually got to kind of get to know him because you did so many charity events with him. >> yeah, and, in fact, you know, one night when we were in the midst of the aftermath of the hurricane, one of my staff was getting really excited, like, after 11:00 and said, "you won't believe what happened tonight." and i was thinking it would be something bad. i said, "what?" he said, "springsteen's in rochester, and he gave you a shoutout from the stage." i was, like, in heaven. oh, yeah! [ laughter ] what did he say? and he said, oh, you're doing a great job and everyone's proud of you. and then we had the telethon here at nbc that matt lauer put on, and i came with the family to watch it. and afterwards came down and was talking to the performers who had helped us. and all of a sudden, i was talking to two of the guys from the e street band, max and steve, and i saw them kind of pulling away from me and looking over my shoulder. i was, like, what? you know, is this a hit? [ laughter ] i don't know what's going to happen. and so, i turned around, and it
was bruce. he put his hand out to shake my hand. i shook his hand. and he said, "come on, give me a hug." >> jimmy: no! >> yes. yes. >> jimmy: there it is right there. going in for the handshake, then it almost ended up being a hug right there. love your picture. come on, give me a hug. you can tell you're both getting in there.

we met him in jordan. we were there visiting king abdullah and queen rania in jordan. and it turns out the king has a party. and who's at the party -- there's only, like, 20 people. and bono's there. now, the king's daughter is 12 years old. she's learning to play the guitar. so, he wants her to play the guitar for bono. so she comes and sits at this table. we're only, like, three or four tables of people. and bono says, "do you know any pop songs?" and she says, "i just learned 'hotel california'." so, bono turns to me and says, "gov, you know the words to 'hotel california,' right?" and i said, "sure." and he said, "okay, me and you, let's go." and bono and i, in the middle of the desert in jordan, sing "hotel california" together with king adbullah's daughter playing the guitar. is this a great job or what? [ applause ] >> jimmy: i think you're a rock star yourself, my friend. governor christie, thank you for everything you're doing. i want to stress the website that everyone go. strongerthanthestorm.com. and just give whatever you can. i just thank you from the bottom of --
