tv   Jimmy Kimmel Live  ABC  October 9, 2020 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
all right, have a ♪ >> announcer: this is an abc color fest station. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live." tonight, liam neeson. killer mike. and music from norah jones. and now, jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: hi there, hi. oh, hi, guys. it's so good to see you. all right. hey, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. welcome to those of you who joined us in primetime for our "nba game night" special. we don't know who won the game even though you know who won. whisper it in my ear, i won't tell everybody, i swear.
11:36 pm
guillermo and i spent the last couple of weeks phone banking for the lakers so we hope they pull this out. going home to watch the game? >> guillermo: yes. >> jimmy: any other plans for the weekend? >> guillermo: nothing. >> jimmy: nothing? >> guillermo: going to my spinning class. >> jimmy: oh, right. >> guillermo: yes. >> jimmy: why do you do that when you say spinning class? >> guillermo: because i cannot do this. >> jimmy: okay, all right. oh, yeah. you know, you've been posting pictures of that, right? >> guillermo: yeah, that's right. >> jimmy: do the people in the class know you're taking pictures of their butts and posting them on tv? >> guillermo: no, no. >> jimmy: okay, all right. well -- all right. i want to look at -- we'll look through some of those pictures. >> guillermo: all right. >> jimmy: i like to 1/2 watch you sweat. whichever team won tonight will most certainly not visit the white house, that's for sure. our super spreader president doesn't need visitors, he's getting ready to hit the road, spreading covid wherever he goes like donnie appleseed. even though he was diagnosed with the coronavirus eight days ago, the president's planning to have a rally in sanford,
11:37 pm
florida, on monday. so come on down and get a big, wet hug from grandpa droplets, he's ready for you. he was hoping to go to florida to do a rally tomorrow, but they couldn't get it together in time so they're having an event at the white house instead to tide him over. hundreds of people are invited. the president's doctor says he's physically okay to do it. trump had him write a note saying that. this guy, he got a doctor's not to get out of vietnam, now he has a doctor's note to get into florida. for a man who is so busy he had to leave the hospital early to get to work, trump spent well over an hour on the phone with fox news yesterday. he called fox business to call kamala harris a monster. he had to claim he won the second debate, even though that hasn't happened. this morning he did two hours of "the rush limbaugh show." tonight he was scheduled to appear on "tucker carlson" for what was billed as a medical evaluation. that's right. come for the racist fearmongering, stay for the prostate exam.
11:38 pm
[ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: i haven't seen this yet, but i can't wait. he was examined on television. i don't know, by dr. mark segal? do we have a picture of dr. segal? that's dr. segal, he's the fox news tv, like their sanjay gupta. i don't mean to be a cynic, but maybe the guy who wrote a book called "false alarm" isn't the tv doctor we should be looking to right now. this is a bizarre stunt even for donald trump. it makes sense he would do it with tucker carlson, a man who always looks like he's watching footage of a colonoscopy anyway. [ laughter ] trump still won't reveal whether or not he is positive for the virus. he wouldn't even tell sean hannity, even though hannity asked him two different times. >> have you had a test since your diagnosis a week ago? >> well, what we're doing is probably the test will be tomorrow. the actual test. because there's no reason to test all the time. but they found very little infection or virus, if any. i don't know that they found
11:39 pm
any, i didn't go into it greatly with the doctors. >> jimmy: right, why would you? why would you ask the doctors if you still have the coronavirus? is it weird that i get tested more to host a late night talk show than the president does to run the answer in the answer is yes. [ applause ] even though he claims to feel better than 20 years ago, he definitely doesn't sound like it. >> will you encourage your supporters to get out and vote early? >> well, i want them to vote. but i will say this. absentee is okay. [ clearing throat ] absentee ballots -- [ clearing throat ] excuse me. absentee ballots are fine. >> jimmy: sounds like a case of the herman cain hiccups there. absentee ballots are fine, it's the mail-in ballots that are the bad ones. but mr. president, absentee ballots go in the mail. quiet, i'm dying! everything going on, as another hurricane is threatening to ravage the gulf coast, he's down
11:40 pm
double-digits in every reasonable poll, our president showed us once again he is focused on the issues that matter. >> look at where california's going to have to ration water. you know why? because they said millions of gallons of water out to sea. out to the pacific. because they want to take care of certain little tiny fish that aren't doing very well without water, to be honest with you. >> jimmy: yeah, that's right, to be honest with you. it's kind of how fish work, really. without water, they don't do very well. but the main event today was the rush radio reach-around rally. [ laughter ] the president dialed into rush limbaugh's show for two hours where he took calls from his adoring supporters. even went into some detail about his sex life. >> i had a beat-off. i had a beat-off the phony mueller report, i had to beat off impeachment, i had to beat off congress, everything else. theyed is in it to new york, which is all political. they send the same stuff into
11:41 pm
new york, i have to beat that off. >> jimmy: no one beats off more than donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: while we're on the subject, we've heard a lot from trump about how great he is doing. he said almost nothing about melania, who was also diagnosed with covid-19. you almost forget. he did two hours with rush limbaugh, said not a word about his wife's health. he has had a lot to say about nancy pelosi. he tweeted, crazy nancy is the one who should be under observation, they don't call her crazy for nothing. they don't call her crazy nancy, you call her crazy nancy. trump is upset because nancy pelosi unveiled a bill today that would let congress determine whether the president is capable of serving as commander in chief. she's really rubbing his nose in this. i don't blame her. don't piss old white women, they got nothing to lose right now. [ laughter ] speaking of white people, there's a new report from the cdc that said, less than
11:42 pm
three-quarters of americans are washing their hands after coughing or sneezing, or in situations where they handle food. and the group least likely to wash their hands overall is white men. which is problematic because we're also the ones most likely to high five. [ laughter ] another study from a journal called "bmj global health" found that viewers who trust fox news are less likely to use preventive coronavirus measures than those who trust cnn. which is not that surprising considering that most people who watch laura ingram think gay weddings cause tornados. [ laughter ] anyway, good idea. avoid white people for a while in general. you got that, guillermo? >> guillermo: yeah, should i leave? >> jimmy: you're ready to go watch that game? >> guillermo: yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, i know. let's get back to basketball here. there's a big game tonight. every so often, every now and then, we host a battle of the birth certificates. senior versus junior in a game of one on one. tonight our matchup is one for
11:43 pm
the ages indeed. it's time for a special nba edition of "generation gap." [ cheers and applause ] our first player tonight is an nba hall of famer who's won six titles, six mvps. he's a 19-time all-star and one of the all-time, all-time laker greats. say hello to kareem abdul-jabbar. hello, kareem! >> how are you doing, jimmy? >> jimmy: kareem was already 51 when his challenger was born. he was the number one overall pick in 2018. he's a member of the nba all rookie team. from the phoenix suns, say hello to deandre ayton. hello, deandre! how old are you? >> 22. >> jimmy: 22 years old. kareem, you are older than that, correct? >> just a little bit, like half a century. >> jimmy: have you met before? >> no, i haven't. >> jimmy: you have not, all right. wonderful. i'm pleased to introduce you.
11:44 pm
the game is called "generation gap." the way it works is this. i ask each of you a question from your opponent's era. if you answer incorrectly, your opponent gets a chance to steal. whoever gets the most right answers wins. it's very simple. you have it? >> definitely. >> jimmy: let's play. our first question is for kareem. kareem. >> yes. >> jimmy: name this tiger king. . >> the guy from florida who had criminally -- took care of a lot of tigers and had a -- gone to jail for -- >> jimmy: we're looking for a name, not a description. i'm sorry, we cannot accept that. deandre, can you name that tiger king? >> no, i cannot. >> jimmy: deandre cannot, all right. deandre, this question is for you. name these tiger kings. deandre, do you know who these men are? >> no.
11:45 pm
>> jimmy: kareem, we go to you. can you name those tiger kings? >> siegfried and roy. >> jimmy: that is siegfried and roy, kareem is on the board! deandre, have you ever heard of siegfried and roy? >> no, i have not. >> jimmy: oh, all right, well. it's too late now, i guess. deandre. who is the actor that plays this vampire? oh, forget it, right? do you recognize that man? >> looked look dracula. >> jimmy: well, yeah, sure he looks like dracula, he's playing dracula. kareem, who is that man? >> bela lugosi. >> jimmy: bela lugosi is correct. kareem, the next question is for you. who's the actor that played this vampire? >> oh -- um -- i don't know his name.
11:46 pm
>> jimmy: you don't know his name? deandre, do you know his name? >> no, i do not. edward. >> jimmy: he was edward in the movie. you know what, that's close enough, deandre. dry a deandre's on the board. kareem, who performs the song "wap"? >> oh, cardi b and -- >> jimmy: we just need one, and that's absolutely right, kareem, correct. deandre, who sang the do-wop song "at the hop"? >> i have no idea. i had the last one. >> jimmy: do you like do-wop? >> do-wop? i don't think i ever heard of it. >> jimmy: it sounds dirty now, doesn't it? >> a little bit. >> jimmy: a little bit, yes. kareem, do you know the answer to that one? "at the hop" was?
11:47 pm
>> i -- no, i can sing it, but i don't know who sang it. >> jimmy: danny and the juniors is the answer we were looking for. >> yes, yes. >> jimmy: all right. next question. kareem? >> yes? >> jimmy: what's the name of this famous singer? >> uh -- amy winehouse? >> jimmy: that is not amy winehouse. deandre, do you know the name of this famous singer? >> billie eilish? >> jimmy: that is right, deandre. deandre has 20 points. deandre, you get the next question. what is the name of this famous singer, deandre? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: deandre doesn't know -- what's that, deandre? >> whitney? >> jimmy: that is not whitney houston, no. kareem? >> billie holiday. >> jimmy: billie holiday is absolutely right. and you know what?

11:55 pm
punishment." which i'd attempted to read four or five times. it doesn't help because every russian character in the novel has three different names. so that was a bitch to get through. >> jimmy: you've got to get the graphic novel version of that, it's much easier to follow along. are these books like you always thought, i've got to read these, i was maybe supposed to read them in school? >> exactly. not necessarily at school, but i always felt -- i mean, you know, i'm in my mid-60s. not to have read james joyce, who's an irishman. >> jimmy: certainly, yes. >> "ulysses." it changed the face of european literature. not to have read that, i felt very guilty. >> jimmy: did you like it? do you give it a thumbs up? >> yes. anybody who hasn't read it before, you should read it very fast. because it's just -- the whole book's like a stream of consciousness. >> jimmy: which of all those books you read was the best? which one did you enjoy the most? >> you know, there's a great --
11:56 pm
i love nordic noir. >> jimmy: oh. >> there's a wonderful writer called henning mankeel. he passed away two, three years ago. crime writer. fantastic. all his books were fantastic. >> jimmy: was he murdered? [ laughter ] >> no. >> jimmy: he wasn't, okay. maybe you can write something about that. i don't know what's funny about that, but anyway. >> agreed. >> jimmy: how do you read the books? do you have the physical books themselves? are you reading on an ipad? what do you do? >> no, i have -- my wife and my wife's father left a collection of extraordinary books. like real books. >> jimmy: right. >> but also because i travel so much, and i do these movies, i take a kindle, which is my new best friend. >> jimmy: oh. >> you can keep 1,000 books on these things. >> jimmy: right, yes, i know that. >> also, when you're in hotels, the bad lights aren't
11:57 pm
particularly good. the kindle is perfect because you have a light behind it. >> jimmy: are you a technological gadget kind of guy? >> jimmy, no. even though i did a year of computer science, as it was called, at queen's university, belfast, in 1971 to '72 -- >> jimmy: is that right? >> excruciatingly painful. >> jimmy: what was computer science like in 1971, '72? did you have a computer? >> there was a computer in the back room that we, the students, never saw. the teacher, professor, went to open the door. you could hear it going hummmm! i think it was the size of a small room, i was told. you never saw it. >> jimmy: why didn't they show you? >> we had these little programs that were incredibly too logical for my mind. >> jimmy: uh-huh. >> a leads to b leads to c leads
11:58 pm
to d. i was useless at it, i was useless. it was like an episode out of "dr. who." every time this door would open you would hear the hum of this strange machine. >> jimmy: are you sure it wasn't a vending machine back there, he was just back having a soda or something? >> i did the course with my sister, who started university at the same time as i did. and she ended up teaching it. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> with mathematics. for 33, 34 years. >> jimmy: did she see the computer? did she get a chance to confirm that it exists? >> actually, she did. >> jimmy: she did, good, all right. let me ask you about fishing. did you do any fly fishing while you were upstate? >> very little. >> jimmy: oh. >> i tell you, it was just hot. the little preserve that i'm a member of, it's a -- it's a stocked -- they stock the creek with fish. but the water levels were very, very low. and i felt the fish were a bit
11:59 pm
stressed. so i only got out twice. but i want to ask you. because you had all summer off, right? >> jimmy: i had the summer off, and you were very nice. a couple of times that you were with us, you tied some flies for me, which i have displayed in my collection at home. i've not used them because i like having them, and i lose a lot of flies. but i did go up to the south fork of the snake river, and there's one of the many beautiful brown trout -- [ cheers and applause ] thank you. no, i'm not giving everyone the finger, it's just the way -- it was not intentional. that's a good one, though. you see that monster? he's pretty beat up. >> by the way, are you holding out like that so it looks bigger? >> jimmy: yes, the key is to hold it as far -- as close to the -- if you have long arms, the fish get bigger and bigger and bigger. but yes, it was a nice-sized fish for sure. >> oh, good. >> jimmy: i was hoping for more excitement from you, yeah.
12:00 am
>> jimmy, i remember we talked about blackberry farm in tennessee. >> jimmy: yes, in tennessee, yes, i've been there. >> i fished there too, i thought it was beautiful. >> jimmy: yeah, it's a good spot. all right, this has become "the outdoor life" network. we're going to take a break. when we come back we're going to see a clip from the new movie with liam neeson, "honest thief." be right back with liam neeson! >> dicky: portions of "jimmy kimmel live" are brought to you by canidae. vet formulated, premium pet food that's packed with nutrition and goodness. who don't need to travel to find something new. who know where to escape, even just for a moment. who don't need a fortune to find a gem. and who know when you spend less, you can discover even more. and never, ever stop discovering. spend less, discover more. at t.j. maxx, marshalls, and homegoods.

12:06 am
and he wants to be honest with her and start afresh. he's in love for the first time. >> jimmy: uh-huh. >> this guy in his mid-50s. >> jimmy: she gets to ride along with him as he blows up an enemy's house. >> yeah. it turns the both of us on. >> jimmy: that would be a red flag for a lot of ladies, but not for kate walsh. at this point in your career, you probably get a mountain of scripts. and how do you know -- i'm sure somebody whittles through them for you in some way. how long does it take you to know, when you're reading a script, whether you're in or out or may be in? >> well, i have -- i call it my cup of tea test. if i open the script and start reading it, and if after page 5 or 6 i want to get up and make a cup of tea, that's not a good sign. >> jimmy: okay. interesting. but what if it's so riveting that you have to get like a cup
12:07 am
of chamomile to calm yourself down? >> no. >> jimmy: no? >> i'm not a chamomile fan. >> jimmy: you're not a chamomile guy. >> if i've read it all the way through in one sitting, that's usually a good sign. >> jimmy: good sign. i heard bono sent you a script that you wound up making into a film. how did that happen? >> well, bono's a pal. and he talked about this producer wanted to send me this script about a couple, it's about breast cancer, a serious subject. he said, you have to read this, there's something about it, it's really special. and it passed the cup of tea test, to make a long story short. we shot it in belfast two years ago with the wonderful british actress leslie manndell. she played my wife, i was her

husband. it's a lovely film. >> jimmy: if you got up to make a cup of tea 10 pages in, would you continue reading it out of respect for bono? >> absolutely, yeah. >> jimmy: how do you know bono? how did you guys become friends? >> asked me for an autograph or something. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: is it true that you auditioned for a part in the movie "the princess bride"? >> i didn't audition, but i was living in london. and i was asked to go and meet rob reiner, the director. meathead. >> jimmy: uh-huh, right, meathead. >> and i was -- i was quite nervous. because i knew this was a big film and stuff. and i had met the casting directors in l.a. and -- anyway, i went into the office in london and rob reiner looked at me and said, "he's not a giant, what are you?" i said, "i'm
12:09 am
"that's not tall, that's not a giant." i said, any time i see rob reiner, he's rude. however, he made "spinal tap" so he's forgiven. >> jimmy: the fact that you -- first of all, you're auditioning for a role that andre the giant played, crazy to start with. and secondly, that's probably the only time you were ever too short for a role, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i know you knew it's meathead. did you watch "all in the family"? is that a show that you were aware of? >> yeah, i liked it. i liked it because it was based on a british similar program that was very, very funny. called "till death do us part." >> jimmy: right. >> but it was -- it was fantastic, i thought it was great. carroll o'conner. >> jimmy: did you know carroll o'conner? is he somebody that you knew? >> i met him.
12:10 am
i met him once or twice. i think he had a restaurant at one time in l.a. i met mr. o'connor, yeah. >> jimmy: it's always a pleasure to see why you. did you want to see my trout again? >> please. >> jimmy: should we put that up one more time? oh, it's another one, it's a cutthroat. liam neeson, everybody! >> one final question. what weight of rod? is that a 5 weight, 6 weight? >> jimmy: 6 weight rod that i was using that day. >> okay. >> jimmy: okay. >> i just -- i just use a 5 weight, one piece, 6 foot, lee wolf rod, that's all i use. >> jimmy: you're more of a man i am, liam, there's no question about it, we don't have to spell it out. >> i know you're in a good situation. >> jimmy: thanks for being with us.

hi, mike. >> hey, how are you, sir? >> jimmy: good, how are you doing? >> i'm good, i have no complaints to air, man. >> jimmy: you've been on our show with run the jewels. i feel you're just as well known now -- i feel like you're just as well known for your political activity as for your music career. do you feel that way? >> i do. first of all, let me acknowledge three run the jewels fans -- >> jimmy: that's right. >> thank you. i am -- i am as known, and in my grandmother's church i'm far more known than i am even singing and dancing. i'm appreciative to be in the group, but i'm appreciative because my grandmother never gave me a choice. i've been this way for like 30 years, helping in my community, and the world decides to say, hey, we're paying that some attention, so i'm happy for that. >> jimmy: your grandmother is the person in your life who made you the man that you are today, who cares about things? >> yeah, her and my grandpa. i grew up in a two-parent
12:24 am
household, they're just very old and not my actual parents. >> jimmy: speaking of very old and not your actual parents, do you still talk to bernie now that he's not running? >> man, i talk to the o.g., man. he says he doesn't think people should call him on his birthday so i shot him a text message, but he called me on mine. i talk to ben from ben & jerry's weekly, though. he's one of the o.g.s that knows how to use the technology. >> jimmy: they just legalized marijuana up in vermont, so you might have to get up there. ben and jerry's stock is going to go through the roof. [ laughter ] you might want to get up there and show bernie the ropes, you know? >> i definitely would love to smoke with ben and bernie. >> jimmy: that would be quite a -- i would like to be a part of that, if that ever happens. >> i would love for that to happen as well. shout-out to run the jewels the marijuana company. >> jimmy: you live in atlanta.
12:25 am
you are -- >> i do. >> jimmy: are you with your family? are you guys at home being careful? >> yeah we're a big blended family. so my wife married me and four kids. the two adult children, we don't trust the crowds they hang around with, they still party. we don't want them to see us as much. >> jimmy: i see. >> the two younger kids, we see more often. we love hanging out. school is an adjustment. pony boy's 18, mikey is 13, they're smarter than anything else in the house. >> jimmy: is he named from the book, from "the outsiders"? >> absolutely, my grandfather and i loved the movie, i loved the book as a kid, what better thing than to name a black child pony? >> jimmy: yeah, stay gold, you know? i mentioned you own some barbershops. how many barbershops do you have? >> we have three. my wife and i own the swag shop, the shave, wash and groom shop. they're traditional style, london-style barbershops. get an old traditional-style haircut.
12:26 am
with it, we're growing. the next 24 months, we're in the process of opening ten more shops. as we open shops, we're moving around, trying to grow into a brand where you can find us everywhere, say a super plus or great clips or whatever but with a lot cooler things happening inside. >> jimmy: right, i see. is it a barbershop where people congregate and hang out and talk and do all those fun things? >> if that means argue and talk smack like men do in the basement when women aren't around, absolutely. everything from politics to sports to -- you know, it's not easy being a man sometimes these days. behind the barbershop doors it's still 1989 sometimes. you'ring about to come in. women with tattoos come in and they often find their husbands and beat them up for fronting like they're tougher than they are. >> jimmy: has that been curtailed a little bit because of covid now? because people here are getting their hair cut outside. >> yeah, what we do now is you can only come in by appointment
12:27 am
now. and when you come in, you have to do your temperature test at the door and get a mask. kind of like going to benihana's these days. >> jimmy: okay. the governor of georgia reopened -- brian kemp reopened a lot of businesses. >> yeah. >> jimmy: it seemed very prematurely, but you said, no, we don't think it's safe, we are not going to open. and even though most businesses were really eager to get going, you for safety reasons decided not to. >> well, a lot -- this is an interesting story. so a lot of our customers are dancers. in clubs like the blue flame. gentlemen's clubs, exotic clubs. they wear short haircuts. i remember them calling angry, yo, you guys open? no, we're closed another 30 days, want to see what's going to happen with the plague. they said, the strip clubs are open. what are you talking about, strip clubs are open? you're the last place that should be open. they're like, the governor opened the city up! i'm like, the governor's not the mayor. so we ended up still having to
12:28 am
close the city. we kept our barbershop closed, but the strip club is back open if you want to go. >> jimmy: the governor, who seems like a bonehead, by the way, but you know him better than i do. he actually came into your -- oh, you met with him, right? people got upset because you met with him, which is interesting. >> people were upset. and i don't understand it. if you pay taxes in a municipality, city, state, or county, you should want to meet with your elected officials. my grandparents raised me to be a responsible member of the community, and that responsibility is not just about taking care of your own yard, taking care of your favored community. you should meet with elected officials. i got an opportunity to meet with the governor. i wanted to talk to him about young people in georgia getting opportunity to get trades, to get ahead of the curve. i wanted to talk to him about particular things like how many contracts from a state level black businesses are getting? how much of our state money goes into black institutions? there are black banks like
12:29 am
citizens trust, one united. there's a new one on the forefront called greenwood. my thing is i'm 35% of the state. if i can see some money come our way by contracts and things too. so he was very receptive to it. he attended one of the black barbershops that i did, when i did my "trigger warning" video on netflix, he decided to come get a hot towel shave from us. he saw one of our three female barbers, megan mitzi, we have three, he got the haircut of his life "i wish you'd given him a high fade like lebron or something. >> i don't want our governor looking like a proud boy. but i want to thank the governor. i really appreciate him for being a man of his word, because the trades program is happening. we're going to get a lot of kids in georgia in trades, we're going to get a lot of jobs. [ applause ] >> jimmy: good. well, i mean, that's a great thing. hopefully he will follow through on all of that stuff. >> he is following through,
12:30 am
absolutely. >> jimmy: was he a good tipper, the governor? >> man, he was cool. he wore the coolers cowboy boots i've seen since fourth grade, i tell you that. for a governor, i didn't expect him to be as hospitable as he was in terms of giving of his time. he spent a lot of the time. actually, he was my first text of the morning. and i was like, wow. for a governor to not have a warrant on you is a pretty cool thing. >> jimmy: well, mike, you're bringing people together. and i admire that. and thank you for joining us tonight. i appreciate it. and good luck with the barbershops and whatever. maybe you'll give me a haircut the next time you come out here. do you ever cut hair yourself? >> i don't, but when you come we're going to take you to the swag shop to get a haircut, then take you to behnke seafood that t. and i own, then smoke some. >> jimmy: that sounds like a deal. killer mike, everybody. be right back with norah jones!
