jimmy fallon! ? ? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, that's what i'm talking about. that's a hot crowd! electric! electric crowd tonight! welcome, everybody! welcome! welcome to "the tonight show." this is it. [ cheers and applause ] thanks so much for being here. thank you for watching. here's what people are talking about. it was a busy day today at the white house with president obama hosting the nba champions, the cleveland cavaliers, as well as
it actually got a little awkward when trump walked up to lebron and said, "nice to meet you, mr. president." [ laughter and applause ] and you go, "no, that's --" no, donald, donald "you're much taller in person." and while president obama met with donald trump, michelle obama met privately with melania trump. [ laughter ] michelle said, "it's a pleasure to welcome you and donald to the white house." melania said, "it is a pleasure to welcome you and donald to the white house." [ laughter and applause ] "stop copying me." "stop copying me." "seriously." "seriously." so, michelle actually had a a nice time showing melania around, although it got weird when they walked into the lincoln bedroom and melania said, "wow, what a lovely closet." [ laughter and applause ] "a bedroom." oh, forget it. get this. there's talk that donald trump may appoint sarah palin as secretary of the interior, which means she would oversee
[ laughter ] when they heard that, bears were like, "well, we had a good run." [ laughter and applause ] oh, boy. oh, you got a bear? you still got a bear. >> steve: let's go, yogi! >> jimmy: of course, a lot of people are unhappy with the election. in fact, there were large anti-trump protests in the streets of at least seven cities last night, including right here in new york. [ cheers ] trump looked out his window from 60 stories up and said, "a parade already? that's fantastic. [ laughter and applause ] it's not a parade. on the other hand, russian president vladimir putin gave a a speech yesterday in which he congratulated donald trump, and he sounded pretty excited. take a look at this. [ speaking foreign language ]
>> steve: right? >> jimmy: a subtle hint, a a subtle hint for christmas. >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: things have been pretty tense, though, but with trump winning the election, the stock market has been going up and down a lot lately. let's see exactly if we can figure out why this is happening. for example, the market went up when trump met with president obama. the market went down when trump asked obama to change the nuclear launch code to 1234. [ laughter and applause ] it's easier to remember. later, the market went down when trump announced he's getting rid of obamacare. the market went up when trump simply assured everyone that he replaced it with "something terrific." [ laughter and applause ] and finally, the market went up when donald trump flew to washington, d.c. on his own plane. the market went down when trump made the pilot land in the hudson river to see if sully was real or not. [ laughter and applause ] of course, it was real! what are you talking about? starbucks just announced that the red holiday cups are coming back this year, and will have 13 different designs. >> steve: wow.
debut tonight. >> steve: really? >> jimmy: you want -- >> steve: you've got early ones? >> jimmy: just a few. just a few. >> steve: just a few. how many you got? >> jimmy: well, you have the classic starbucks, classics like the barista texting while you order. [ laughter ] >> steve: oh, yeah. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: we also have the lady pouring three inches of coffee into the trash can so she can add whole milk. [ laughter and applause ] "it's too much coffee! i said room for milk!" one more. we have the guy carrying bathroom key attached to embarrasly it. [ laughter and applause ] it's like, "all right, don't make me look like a fool." and finally, this is going around the internet today. it just made me smile. it's this woman who was in the crowd last night at a a golden state warriors game. you know, and the camera goes on to you to watch you dance. it looked like she was having a a pretty good time. check this out.

[ laughter ] >> steve: from the future. >> jimmy: seriously. >> steve: you're having two more kids. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh! they're really adorable. "yeah, this one's going to hate you, though." and they go, "how did you know that?" [ laughter ] have you ever played with david blaine? >> questlove: yeah, i saw him levitate once, and nah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, seriously, it is that. either you -- you don't go, like, "oh, that's cool."
