[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> steve: from studio 6b in rockefeller center in the heart of new york city, it's "the tonight show starring jimmy fallon." tonight, join jimmy and his guests, neil patrick harris, ken jeong, comedian josh johnson --
and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 629, nashville, yeah! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hello, everybody! hi, everybody! welcome! thank you very much -- thank you for being here! hot crowd tonight! hot new york city crowd tonight here! [ cheers and applause ] here at the "tonight show." this is it, you're here, you made it. you guys, here's what people are talking about, president trump is getting
ready to speak to congress next tuesday. and apparently this speech will be more upbeat than the one he gave at his inauguration. [ light laughter ] people were like, "seriously, 'manchester by the sea' was more upbeat than his inauguration speech." [ laughter and applause ] so that's -- i've heard that trump's frequent visits to his mar-a-lago resort have many wondering if he'll stick with the presidential tradition of visiting camp david. while others would just be happy if he stuck with the tradition of visiting the white house. [ cheers and applause ] you're still president on the weekends, you know that? all right, good. >> jimmy: of course another big story of trump's ongoing feud with the media. especially his tweet where he called the press "the enemy of the american people." [ light laughter ] and the american people said, "no, that would skill be kale. we don't like -- no one likes kale." [ applause ] "have you tried baking it with a little olive oil?" "yeah, i've tried that too and i don't --" "it tastes like potato chips." "no, it doesn't. [ light laughter ] tastes like kale."
"you put some salt --" "yeah, yeah, yeah." "fake cheese stuff." "yeah i know it tastes gross." "have you ever had it with a a dorito? you can barely taste the kale." but get this, so former democratic presidential candidate lincoln chaffee is actually siding with trump saying he can relate to how trump's being covered. and even lincoln chaffee was like, "wait, who am i again?" [ laughter and applause ] am i the guy with the guitar? no, that was martin o' malley. no, yeah, i was the guy with the hair, okay. speaking of the media, it's time to see how things are going for white house press secretary sean spicer with today's "sean spicer press briefing moment," take a look. ♪ >> and with that, we're going to take some questions. steve holland. >> steve holland's not here. ♪ [ laughter and applause ]
>> jimmy: still getting the hang of things. i saw that all over the country, republican town halls are being met with some pretty hostile crowds. one colorado congressman even snuck out the back door to escape. yeah, i guess that might explain what i saw on c-span today. ♪ >> coming up on c-span, at 12:00 p.m., senator mitch mcconnell zips himself into a duffel bag and asks his assistant to carry him out to the parking lot. at 1:00 pm senator ted cruz shrieks, "farewell, nitwits," throws a smoke bomb, then when the smoke clears is still visible frantically trying to open a window. at 2:00 p.m., house speaker paul ryan says, "i have to take this call." then starts talking into a a stapler. and finally at 3:00 p.m., senator rand paul shouts, "is that nick from 'the bachelor,'" then tries to run through the wall like the kool-aid man. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: yep, yep, now i get it. >> steve: oh, yeah! >> jimmy: oh, yeah! >> steve: see ya later, nitwits. you can still see me, drat!
>> jimmy: guys, this is pretty big. today nasa called a press conference to announce that they've found seven new planets. the crowd cheered while pluto was like -- [ slow clap ] really great. [ cheers and applause ] really happy for you. yeah, apparently the planets are 40 light years away and could actually support life. when they heard this, millions of tinder users expanded their search distance. let's try 20 billion miles. [ laughter and applause ] still nobody? come on, what's -- check it out, this week u.p.s. unveiled a new delivery truck that uses drones to fly packages out for delivery. and u.p.s. drivers were like, "hey as long as we're inventing new things for our trucks, how about doors?" [ laughter and applause ] it's february! you make us wear shorts! [ laughter ] >> steve: sam kinison.
>> jimmy: we run around in brown shorts! and it's freezing! that's right, u.p.s. are using drones which explains their new slogan, "what can brown drop on you?" wait a second. >> steve: wait, whoa! [ laughter and applause ] wait a second. >> jimmy: hey, i saw that today is george washington's birthday. [ cheers and applause ] don't worry, he's not watching. but george washington is of course the father of our country. while trump is more like the stepfather that got your mom on the rebound. [ laughter and applause ] [ audience oohs ] "you're not my real president!" "you call me dad whenever you're ready." okay, that's -- [ laughter ] guys, sometimes it feels like there's nothing but bad news out there. well, we here at "the tonight show" have decided to do something about that. so we asked real local nbc news anchors from all around the country to read stories that we wish were true. stories that make us feel happy. i'll show you what i mean in tonight's installment of "i've got good news and good news."

[ cheers and applause ] yeah. >> jimmy: good for her. wow. >> yeah. and it's really, you know, obviously my most favorite personal episode. my tv wife discovers a lump on self-exam. and it -- basically ken, my character guides her through it. it's really -- it's positive without being preachy. there's a lot of -- there's a a lot of sharp, edgy jokes underneath it. becaue while as tran and i were going through this, we would use a lot of dark humor to get through dark times. so it really -- it's one of my favorite things i've done.
i hope you guys enjoy it. it really is -- it's for -- people who have seen it are, like, love the episode because it's become so universal and what became an intimate story now is really a universal world love story. so, i'm really appreciating being here. [ applause ] >> jimmy: well, i love that you -- yeah. >> thank you. >> jimmy: it must've been tough. i'm glad they did that though. >> yeah. >> jimmy: a lot of people -- if you don't know this. you should know this. but dr. ken, you actually were a doctor, or are a doctor doctor. >> yeah, now it's technically i am still a doctor. and even when i would do comedy on the side. like patients would come up to me and when they found out i did comedy or they saw me on comedy central, they were like, "i'm so happy you have an outlet as a doctor," because i was very serious -- i never joked around at work. i mean, it is life and death, it's medicine so i never let on that i had any other interest. and that's totally true. ask any of my former patients. they would never know. and so when they say you could -- i could never envision you doing this. that's a compliment, as opposed to -- i mean, if you really -- if a patient came for me and
said, "dude, i knew you'd be huge, man. [ light laughter ] ever since from the moment you checked my prostate, i said, "this guy's hilarious." [ laughter ] "some day's he going jump naked out of trunk. you'll see." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i don't think people would predict that.
