jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks for coming. i'm glad we're all here, i'll tell you. you know who else is here tonight. the great and powerful elton john is here. [ cheers and applause ] elton john has more hits and more pairs of glasses than any other recording artist. you know, years ago you probably know elton wrote a song for me. he said i could tell everybody, it was my song. it was about how wonderful the life is since i'm in the world. very sweet. guillermo, what's your all-time favorite elton john song, number one elton john song of all-time? >> guillermo: tiny -- tiny dancer. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: very good. that song was written for him. also tonight, very funny woman, whitney cummings is here with
us. a special on hbo coming out this weekend. i would love to see whitney as the new bachelorette, wouldn't that be a fun thing? [ cheers and applause ] there isn't as much crying on "the bachelorette" as there is on "the bachelor" which makes it not as much fun. i think whitney would solve that. tonight was "bachelor" night on abc, quite an episode. "the bachelor" is like a reality show version of "the hobbit." everyone is on a mission to get the ring. and along the way many of these pilgrims become insane. much of the drama on tonight's show centered on olivia, who's the local news anchor from austin. she appears to be among the favorites to win ben's heart. some of the other women were talking about eolivia herein their back, making fun of her boobs, her feet and her breath. so jamie, another contestant, did what any good fellow bachelor contestant would do, she got hold of olivia just to
make sure she heard what all the terrible things the gals were saying. >> what were they saying? >> they started like picking apart -- like some of your like -- appearances. it's like stupid -- >> can i get? kankles. >> no. like tiny stupid -- talking about like your toes. >> my toes? >> i'm like -- >> i don't think -- >> jimmy: that is not right. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: you don't talk about another woman's toes. olivia gets the shocking toe news. and then this is where she really hits it out of the park. later on, ben comes in to share some very bad personal news. and -- no, not a whoo. pay attention to how olivia responds. >> i got a phone call this morning from my family. two people who are close to my family passed abay in a plane
crash last night. these two people have been pillars of my community back home since i was little. >> can i grab you? and talk to you? i'll lead the way. so, you know, everyone has things on their body that they just like wish they could change or things -- and like mine, waist-down, i hate my legs. i hate them. like people have written blogs that i have kankles. sorry. trying to be strong all the time. this is the scariest thing ever. >> jimmy: it is. she tries to be strong. [ applause ] >> jimmy: it's the scariest thing ever. okay. now back to your friends that died. who were they again? then what made the whole thing even crazier, ben gave her a rose. went from the toes to a rose just like that. it's inspirational.
i really believe dr. martin luther king would have approved of this. meanwhile there's always at least one nut on the show. this season her name is lace. even if you don't watch "the bachelor" you know immediately hot crazy one is because some kind of haunted circus music plays behind her every time she talks. tonight lace had been with the words no bachelor ever wants to hear. >> ben, can i talk to you for a second? >> jimmy: "can i talk to you for a second?" never good. not from a doctor, not from your boss, not from one of the bachelorette. >> i just feel like going home might be easier. and maybe just continue working on myself. and trying to better myself. because you can't love someone else until you truly love yourself. >> jimmy: any sentence that begins with "like my tattoo says." i'm in. i really am. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i know that's what the tattoo on
your back says. but what does the dolphin on your ankle think? so lace eliminated heard, she went home. but she's definitely going to be on "bachelor in paradise." that is a guarantee. meanwhile the bachelor, before an nba game, got a mention from none other than charles barkley. >> kobe bryant will play for the lakers his last trip to oakland and they are going to try to snap golden state's winning streak at home. they have won 36 in a row -- >> they got no chance. >> 18-0. >> they're like the black girl on "the bachelor." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: he was right. lakers went home crying in a limo. last night from charleston, south carolina, the democratic presidential debate between hillary clinton, bernie sanders, and an unidentified man on the side, i'm told his name is martin o'mally. if the democratic candidates were a boy band martin o'mally would be this guy.
he look is familiar but -- can't really -- you know what i'm saying? last night martin o'mally looked like the kid forced to choose between his parents at a divorce hearing. which is very sad are because you know, he's a middle-aged white guy, nice head of hair. 10 years ago they would have just handed him the nomination. now he's like the attractive older man sitting in the outdoor tub during an erectile dysfunction -- [ applause ] >> jimmy: it wasn't a bendly debate. bernie and hillary went at it. watch this look bernie gives hillary. >> president obama has led our country out of the great recession. senator sanders called him weak, disappointing. he even in 2011 -- >> jimmy: let's see that again in slow motion. he's like, what the? [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: that's how a 74-year-old throws shade. a little extra poison. in a sense the debate was a
victory for bernie sanders. in that he made it through the whole thing without dying. meanwhile in london, the british parliament today actually had a debate on whether or not to ban donald trump from the country, for real. more than half a million people of great britain signed a petition demanding the government ban donald trump from entering. so today lawmakers there -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: -- put that up for debate. >> this ridiculous individual that is mr. trump -- [ laughter ] >> who may be elected as president of the united states -- >> donald trump is a fool. he is free to be a fool. he is not free to be a dangerous fool on our shores. >> you don't need a crystal ball to recognize that the person you're dealing with may be a successful businessman, is also a buffoon. buffoonery. >> we've had a lot of talk in this debate about buffoonery.
you've referred to mr. trump's buffoonery. >> donald trump is an idea. >> this man is crazy. >> donald trump as buffoon. >> jimmy: a buffoon! and a waz z it. what is a wazzit? i've never heard of it before. maybe i'll ask elton john what it means, i have no idea. there you go, we're spreading fun all over the world now. today is the day on which we honor the life of dr. martin luther king jr., who was a great man, no doubt. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: did brave and noble things. any fifth grader will tell you all you need to know about martin luther king but adults sometimes have a tendency to forget things. today we went on the street and asked people what they thought about martin luther king endorsing donald trump for president. obviously that didn't happen. but that didn't stop a number of individuals from weighing in in this mlk day edition of "lie witness news."
>> dr. martin luther king jr. this morning came out endorsing donald trump for president. what was your reaction to that? >> he's don't. i on be a little nervous. i'd think he'd be the last one to endorse trump. >> what do you think about dr. martin luther king jr. endorsing donald trump for president? >> i figure if he's going to endorse donald trump for president, then maybe he thinks that he'll be a good president, his opinion. >> were you surprised that martin luther king jr. endorsed donald trump even though he got kicked off "celebrity apprentice" last year? >> oh, yes. i would be surprised but you've got to do what's better -- you know, the rich are going to support the rich. and they got to know how to take care of their money. because if donald trump being the money man he is will take care of their money -- sup tmz! >> were you surprised to learn that dr. martin luther king jr. never once voted for barack
obama? >> actually -- i am. >> why is that? >> i am surprised. you would think because of a minority he'd want to vote for mr. obama himself. >> but the whole being deceased and not being able to get out to vote -- >> which is true. >> do you think martin luther king endorsing donald trump was a reaction to malcolm x endorsing hillary clinton? >> well, malcolm x and hillary clinton, from martha's vineyard, they both -- malcolm x has a home on martha's vineyard so they vacation -- >> they waterski together? >> yeah, they vacation, they golf together when they're on martha's vineyard. yes, my brother lives on martha's vineyard. >> does he see malcolm x out there walking around? >> i've never seen him, my brother has, yeah. >> anything you want to say to dr. martin luther king jr. on his big way? >> congratulations, martin luther king. if you support donald trump that's the right thing to do. if he's going to make this a better nation for us to live
under, you've got my support too. let's make this one nation under god, all the power in the world to you. so this is what we got to do for our country. >> let's bring the chargers in and keep the mexicans out. >> no, no, no, no, hey! [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're going to take a break. save ourselves. when we come back, we're going to play "foreigner or not." stick around, we'll be right back!

>> jimmy: do you ever come up with a melody and try to match it to lyrics that he's given? >> i've done it twice. no, once. "don't go breaking my heart." that's it. >> jimmy: wow, really. that's something else. >> that's the only time. >> jimmy: do you know of anyone else who works like that? >> there must be some people that work like that. we've been writing 49 years together this year. it's just amazing -- i don't try and analyze it. it's strange but it works so i don't question it. >> jimmy: it's great to see you. we're going to hear music when you come back. bit on the outdoor stage? >> i'm going to do first of all "looking up" from the new album. >> jimmy: "wonderful crazy night" is out february 5th. we'll be right back with whitney cummings!

we're with jimmy and molly, weirdo in denmark. >> jimmy: jimmy and molly are their cats. >> i always feel like howard's always busy, you guys were at the gynecologist's together, whatever you guys do. you guys are always hanging out. >> jimmy: how did you meet howard stern? >> again, on-air. this is how all my relationships start. and it was super embarrassing. when i first did his show i had not listened to it. i didn't grow up listening to howard. but i thought i was just supposed to go in and be very slutty. i thought that was the -- >> jimmy: that's what people think it is, right. >> i didn't get the memo he has a gorgeous wife, and he doesn't really do that stuff anymore. >> jimmy: right. >> so i went to -- do you know the store american apparel? >> jimmy: oh. i am an american. >> it's basically where like russian prostitutes buy their workout clothes. and so i bought like these weird mini skirts. like i looked like -- remember
kelly bundy from "married with children"? you won't get that. so i -- i'm ready to ride. i think it's going to be this crazy -- i'm like doing kiegels in the lobby. then it was not like that at all. then i also kind of like was shocked by how attractive howard was. because he always says -- he doesn't think he's attractive. but i said to him, you're so attractive. i was kind of like borderline flirting. then i get a direct message from his wife beth who's like, dupd to get a drink? i'm like, oh-oh. she's either going on beat my ass or i'm going to get to have a threesome with them. either one i'm available for. >> jimmy: which was it? which did it turn out to be? >> insultingly, neither. >> jimmy: neither of those things. >> she wasn't jealous at all. oh, she must think i'm trying to take him. she's an angel, adonis, gorgeous. she's shockingly nice. i hang out with filthy
comedians. i thought she was a recruiter for scientology or something. i was like, i am so in. yeah, then we sort of became friends after that. >> jimmy: yeah, well, i have a similar thing except for the threesome and the beatings, yeah. so by the way, it's every comedian's dream to have a standup comedy special on hbo. >> pretty cool. >> jimmy: what was the one that made the biggest impact on you growing up? >> oh, man. all of carlin's. carlin was my favorite, still is my favorite. denmark, george carlin, anything? nothing? >> jimmy: she probably knew "married with children." do people know you now from the roasts primarily? >> i feel like people -- i figure -- people either think they know me -- i can't tell. i'm at the level of fame where people either think i'm famous or they just think we went to college together. >> jimmy: right. >> like i'll go on an airplane, there will be someone to my right, someone will come on the plane, i'm a fan, can i get a photo! sure. then the person next to me is
like, who are you? and i'm like, okay. he knows. like everything about me. you know nothing about me. what is it? i have to be like, i've been on some shows. they're like, what shows? he's not sure. then i have this thing where people feel the need to give me career advice. >> jimmy: oh, great. >> yeah. i get a lot of career advice. >> jimmy: what do people say to you? >> people are like, hey, why aren't you in the new "star wars" movie? that's what you should be doing! like, as if i haven't thought of it, hadn't crossed my mind. >> jimmy: why aren't you? >> i overslept. i just hadn't checked that e-mail. so i have to tell them why, which is that they don't want me. that i'm not famous enough. >> jimmy: that's not true, they just probably hadn't thought of it either. there's going to be a lot more "star wars" movies to come. i have a feeling you're going to be in at least one of them. >> maybe. i don't think so. then they'll be like, you know what you should do? you should have your own late-night talk show.
>> jimmy: you can have this one, i'm exhausted. >> i'm like, let me just call jimmy and tell him i'm ready to take over. >> jimmy: you're welcome to it, any time. it's very good to see you. my wife and i watched your special, we thought it was great. saturday night on hbo, it's called "i'm your girlfriend." whitney cummings, everybody. we'll be right back with elton john!
