tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC May 24, 2022 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
good night. >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live." tonight, rupaul, van lathan jr., and music from becky g., with cleto and the cletones. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: that's very nice. welcome, thanks. i'm embarrassed, really, thanks. hi, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. i thank you for watching at home and for joining us here in our studio. i have to tell you, we're a man down tonight. guillermo is not here for the second night in a row, and he
might not be back for a while. he's at home right now with a case of corona. and he also has covid. [ laughter ] this is the second time. he had it last summer. and i do want to say, he didn't catch it from me because i haven't seen him for almost two weeks. he probably got it from one of the other hosts. [ laughter ] he said he's feeling okay. but his texts, i asked how he was, he wrote, "this is sucks. i got covid again. unbelievable." [ laughter ] and you know, this is sucks. because it's not the same without him here. usually when guillermo calls in sick, it's because he has the don julio variant. [ laughter ] we also haven't ruled out monkeypox. you know, we had our first report of monkeypox in our studio audience today. no. [ laughter ] in california today. and i have to admit for a potentially fatal disease, it's a lot of fun to say. monkeypox. [ laughter ] it really is. provided, of course, you are able to say it. >> it is the first possible case in new york in years.
monkeycox is a rare -- monkeypox, excuse me, is a rare virus -- >> monkey [ bleep ]s. you can see them on stage at chimpendale's in las vegas. [ rim shot ] thank you. this is something my friend sent me last night. he was watching "family feud" and guess who got a shoutout? >> daniel, what tv show has the best moves, tv show host? >> i'm going to double up on the jimmy and say jimmy kimmel. >> jimmy kimmel. [ buzzer ] >> jimmy: now, that is -- that's outrageous! [ laughter ] those people have no idea what kind of moves i have. it got worse from there. >> that's a hard one. 5? >> pat sajak. >> 3? >> alex trebek! >> jimmy: hold on a minute, alex trebek passed away 18 months ago, my moves aren't as good as a deceased game show host?
pat sajak? no offense, pat's only move is this, spinning the wheel. [ laughter ] i've never been so insulted in my whole life. in new york yesterday, the end of an era, really. the last pay phone in manhattan was carried into space. [ laughter ] pay phones are weird. this is something we're going to have to explain to our kids. it's why superman now has to change clothes in the middle of the street. [ laughter ] there are no more pay phones. i guess the city started getting rid of them in 2015. they replaced them with wi-fi hot spots, which is an upgrade. pay phones were disgusting. it's like they removed all the rats and replaced them with golden retrievers. [ laughter ] it's an upgrade. payphones were the last place in america where you could call your bail bondsman and get lip herpes at the same time. [ laughter ] now they're gone. what's next? are people supposed to stop masturbating on the subway? [ laughter ] we are learning more about the many ways our former president
was picking our pockets. one of them is by charging the secret service to rent rooms at his hotels and golf courses. the secret service reportedly spent almost $2 million at various trump properties. they spent $850,000 at trump's golf properties. $400,000 at trump hotels. $300,000 just to childproof mar-a-lago for eric, to keep him from accidentally drowning his head in the toilet. [ laughter ] it's funny to think donald trump's only profitable business venture was being president of the united states. and by the way, remember how many times he told us he was giving his salary for being president, "i'm giving it away" to various government agencies? the park service or whatnot? he did that for the first few years, but there are no reported donations for the last half of 2020. suddenly, the donations stopped. and when the "washington post" asked what happened, they got no response. it's almost like he's a grifter or something. [ laughter ] [ applause ] meanwhile, there was an unusual court decision handed down involving one of the alleged rioters in the attack on the
capitol on january 6th. a federal judge denied a request made by one of the men charged with taking part who asked to take a five-day vacation to cabo while awaiting trial for assaulting a capitol police officer. this vacation was a prize from his employer, mallinckrodt pharmaceuticals, that makes sense. because anyone who thought a request like that made sense would have to be on drugs. [ laughter ] who does this guy think he is? ted cruz? you don't do that. [ laughter ] only in america can a person who stormed our nation's capitol win a tropical vacation from his boss at the opioid factory. [ laughter ] meanwhile, soon-to-be-former member of congress madison cawthorn is having a bad week. if you're not familiar with madison, this guy, he's from north carolina. he's the youngest member of congress. he's the one who a few months ago claimed he was invited to an orgy with a bunch of republican lawmakers doing coke. and then there was video of him
on top of a friend thrusting violently. not only did cawthorn lose his primary last week, he is now being investigated by the house ethics committee who are looking into "financial improprieties" related to a cryptocurrency he promoted, and possibly an improper relationship with a staffmember. just goes to show you when mitch mcconnell invites you to an orgy, you go to the orgy. [ laughter and applause ] it's as simple as that. election day today in five states. there were primaries in georgia, alabama, arkansas, texas, and minnesota. i mentioned last night kellyanne conway, trump's adviser, has a new autobiography. they've been releasing tidbits from the autobiography. one of them being she admits that trump lost the election. but she was very careful to do it in the one place she could be sure he would never see it, which is a book. [ laughter ] why this is a story, i'm not sure.
this election thing. officials from both parties in every state have concluded there was no fraud, biden won the election. in florida, governor ron desantis, his own secretary of state wrote, "florida's election in 2020 was accurate, transparent, and conducted in compliance with florida law." and still, he felt it necessary to create a special election police force. this is a 24-person team that he created to make sure what never happened in the first place ever happens again. >> from the team behind "law and order" and "law and order svu" comes "law and order evu: election victims unit." >> any election fraud yet? >> not yet. but i can feel it. something's coming. soon. real soon. extremely.
>> when dirty elections happen, they clean house. >> try "moist." >> there's no "s." >> critics are calling it a real slow burn. like, really slow. >> "shark." >> there's no "s." >> "law and order: evu." followed by "csi: lochness." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: wow. dick wolf doesn't miss. the big primary showdown was in georgia today where trump went in big, backing david perdue for governor because he is mad at the incumbent brian kemp because brian kemp refused to help him
illegally overturn the election. kemp.pence has been stumping fo- who had a big lead going into the voting today. trump versus pence is like johnny versus amber all over again. nobody wins, you know? [ laughter ] all you're left with is poop in the bed. [ laughter ] when you've got poop in the bed, that's when you need the mypillow man, mike lindell, who is still screaming about the voting machines. >> they ran our ballots on a popular machine and ran them through the es&s machine. they sat and looked and, what? it's very corrupt. by the way, if you are -- es&s, if you're one of the owners and please show me, es&s, you can go to suemikelindell.com, we have a template there. jump on the bandwagon, ees&s, because you're going to be bye-bye. >> jimmy: the crazy part is he was driving that car. [ laughter ] if you go to suemikelindell.com, this is what you get, "this site
can't be reached." [ laughter ] just like mike himself. you do have to hand it to mike. he's been putting his time and his money where his moustache is, even taking out ad time to endorse a special candidate of his own. >> quack, quack. quack, quack, quack. hey, there. i'm pretty sure i'm mike lindell, the mypillow fella. i like to come out to the park to feed the ducks. and to worry about our republic. these days our justice department is full of partisan demo-creeps, and republi-craps, out to get us hard-working americans. it's time that changed so i'm endorsing robocop for fbi director. robocop is the guy we need to lead us. he can't be killed or melted because he's part robot, and on account of being 80% machine, he can communicate with them dominion ones and tell them to make more votes for president trump. so do yourself a favor and watch this great documentary that was made about it.
robocop's got a gun and a motorcycle, and he's even got a lady cop who exposes her milky bosoms. robocop and i got a lot in common. we were both born in the midwest. we both love law enforcement. we both got shot hundreds of times in detroit in the 1980s. vote for robocop for director of the fbi! >> paid for with a pillowcase full of cat hair and old coat hangers. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you, mike. we have a good show for you tonight. van lathan jr. is here. we've got music from becky g. [ cheers and applause ] and we'll be right back with rupaul, so stick around! [ cheers and applause ] ♪
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi there, welcome back to the show. tonight, his new book is called "fat, crazy and tired: tales from the trenches of transformation." van lathan jr. is with us. [ cheers and applause ] you know, van happens to be a friend of mine, and he sent me a beautiful -- i hope he doesn't mind me sharing this review. he sent me a beautiful inscription when he sent me a copy of the book. and there it is. [ laughter ] we'll talk to van later on. then later, a talented singer from here in los angeles, her album is called "esquemas." becky g. from the mercedes eq stage. [ cheers and applause ] tomorrow night, seth macfarlane and jay ellis, with music from def leppard. so please join us for that. our first guest tonight is an 11-time emmy winner with a stockpile of size 14 high-heeled shoes.
season seven of "rupaul's drag race all stars" is on paramount plus now. please welcome rupaul. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: look how great your clothes are. i mean, really. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's so nice, thank you. thank you. >> jimmy: can i tell you what i think about when i see you dressed each time? >> what, what? >> jimmy: this must be a lot of pressure and a lot of work. >> it is a lot of work. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's a lot of work. you know, i just bought these -- the pipe and drape things, i put them up in my house so i can put all the costumes -- at the office i have the suits. it's a lot of work, jim.
it's esquemas! actually, i had esquemas in high school, there's an ointment for that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: a little salve. yeah, because you can't just put on a t-shirt and a pair of shorts and run out to the cvs. >> no, i do. this is the thing. i do. i'm never going to stop wearing masks because i have my anonymity back. >> jimmy: right. >> i wear a hoodie, a mask, dark glasses, nobody knows. jimmy. >> jimmy: i know what you're saying. >> nobody knows, jimmy! >> jimmy: it's nice sometimes, right? >> it's esquemas! [ applause ] >> jimmy: five years ago, you put on a surgical mask and sunglasses and they think you're michael jackson. >> exactly. >> jimmy: right? >> exactly. >> jimmy: you look like a crazy person. >> that's right. >> jimmy: now you look like a responsible person. >> responsible person, i love it. i absolutely love it. we'll never stop wear a mask. >> jimmy: you have this big convention. it's -- like there's comic-con, you have drag-con. >> that's right, drag-con. that's right.
[ cheers and applause ] this is a gathering -- what, you guys know about drag-con? [ cheers and applause ] how about that. i love that. yes. >> jimmy: it's a big, a huge gathering of drag performers, people who love that, and then vendors selling them stuff. >> you say people who love that? >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] fans. right? >> no, you made it sound subversive. like, you know. you know. "ugh, people who love that, mmm!" >> jimmy: i think you read something that wasn't there. >> i did. >> jimmy: if it's comic-con, people who love that. >> the lovers of drag, drag lovers. >> jimmy: i asked for a list because i'm curious. i have some of the vendors or exhibitors at drag-con. and i wonder if you know what's going on there. >> okay, yeah, try me, let's see. >> jimmy: two girls, one closet. [ laughter ] what is that?
what is that? you don't know? [ cheers and applause ] >> mm, i wonder. >> jimmy: boy butter. is that a product? is that what you rubbed on your esquema? >> maybe a bagel or something. boy butter, hm. >> jimmy: creepy gals. goobers only. man buns. >> man buns, sure. >> jimmy: biglatinmen.com, that one i know. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's why guillermo's not here right now, he's updating his profile. [ applause ] the wrestling guy store. >> the wrestling guy store? >> jimmy: i like it. >> yeah. >> jimmy: tuck it up. what is tuck it up? >> i know what tuck it up is. [ laughter ] yes, i do. >> jimmy: is it what i think it is? >> it's exactly what you think it is, yeah. >> jimmy: and this is the best one. this is not a joke. >> okay. >> jimmy: integrated tax consultants, inc. [ laughter ] this is the final -- like whether the wig is deductible?
>> yes, yes. you know, when the girls win our show and then leave our show, i tell them the first thing, you must pay your taxes, number one. number two, do not read the comments on social media. those are the two pieces of advice i always give. >> jimmy: do they listen to either? >> no, no, they don't. they don't. >> jimmy: the fact that you have to say that, yeah, probably people aren't listening. >> show business, people fall into the same mistakes all the time. that's why the tax guy is there. and the two girls, one closet. [ laughter ] you know, because you've got to buy the pipe and drape for your house. >> jimmy: have you ever been to a drag race, like an auto racing type of situation? >> you don't know this about me. >> jimmy: oh. >> i'm a car guy. >> jimmy: oh. >> i love cars. >> jimmy: have you ever gone to one of those things? >> no, no. but i do, you know -- sometimes i'll go out to malibu with one of my cars. you know, they have -- everybody has their cars on display. do you know that -- >> jimmy: right, yeah. >> i'll go out there.
i was out there last sunday. >> jimmy: you show off your car? >> i certainly do. >> jimmy: you rub it with a cloth and make it look beautiful? >> no, i don't. i don't do that. i do that before i go. >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> but i love cars. >> jimmy: people ask you questions about your car and you enjoy answering them? >> i don't stick around, i drive through, look at a few cars. [ laughter ] but i've never been to a drag racing thing, a real one, but i used to watch the indianapolis 500 when i was a kid. >> jimmy: oh, you did. wouldn't it be fun if you and i went to a drag race? >> yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that would be fun. >> yes. >> jimmy: let's do that sometime. >> that would be fun. even better if we got to drive one of those things. >> jimmy: i bet they'd let us drive one of those things. >> yeah. a friend of mine went to a tony robbins event in florida or something. and part of the initiation or whatever they do, they had to drive like 100, i don't know, 120 miles an hour in a racing car. have you ever driven that fast in a car? >> jimmy: i don't think i have.
>> do you know how to drive? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i'm a driver, since i was 35. [ laughter ] you know, i don't love the smell of the fuel and -- i don't like going that fast, really. >> yeah. you know, i was driving at 11 years old. my father lived in cerritos, in the l.a. area -- >> jimmy: where the auto square is. >> yes, auto square. cal worthington was not far from there. you know cal worthington? >> jimmy: of course, yeah. >> he would go to work. i knew where the keys to his 1969 toyota corona, not carolla, corona. i was 11 years old. i was tall for 11. i would drive around cerritos with my 10-year-old sister in the passenger seat. [ laughter ] and only make right turns because i was too afraid to make left turns. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did he ever catch you? >> no, he never knew, which says everything you need to know about my father. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: yeah, we used to steal, cleto, my band leader and i, used to steal his dad, cleto sr.'s car. cleto would drive the car. but then we were driving around the block -- sorry if i'm just now telling you this. [ laughter ] we'd spend 45 minutes trying to get it exactly -- we marked with chalk the parking spot. it was never even close to worth it. >> are you a good driver? >> jimmy: yeah, i'm all right. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. no, i love it. i'm not going to tell you how many cars i have because that would probably be environmentally irresponsible. >> jimmy: really? >> probably. >> jimmy: you're not driving them all at once, are you? >> not all at once. >> jimmy: so that's okay. do you have like a jay leno-style warehouse full of cars? >> i wish. i wish i could do that. but no, i don't have that. >> jimmy: you don't, wow. this is -- i would not have expected this of you. >> i love cars. >> jimmy: yeah. >> there's so many i still want. >> jimmy: which are at the top of your list? >> well, right now i want a 1976 corvette, a t-top thing.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i feel like you teed us up for a huge number of cars. >> no, no, it's easy. it's only -- that's the amount of garage space i have. if i had more garage space. >> jimmy: i see, you need another garage. >> i need another car. i need another garage. >> jimmy: rupaul is here. [ cheers and applause ] he's got emmys, he's got cars, he's got anything you could possibly want. we'll be back after this.

[ laughter ] i'm like, yeah, we did a movie and the movie won, it won an oscar. he's like, what is that? [ laughter ] i was like, well, every year the very best films, dad, all these white people get together.

damn award, why do people keep calling me? i'm like, don't worry about it, man, tell me what's on the outdoor channel. >> jimmy: wow, wow. he was into outdoors stuff. >> a hunter, yeah. >> jimmy: the book, which is about all your interesting life, your transformation. what is your transformation from? >> so my transformation, it's interesting. at one point i was 370 pounds. then i got down to maybe 235 pounds. like diesel, michael b. jordan, six. [ laughter ] after the pandemic i decided, what the hell. i'll gain it all back. >> jimmy: right. >> so i gained a little bit more weight. but the book is really more about -- the fat, crazy and tired in the book is about those three states of being. i am from south louisiana. baton rouge, louisiana. gardere is where i'm from. when you're there, there's a
predisposition to be fat, crazy, and tired. you grow up in a food desert. you deal with trauma and your mental health can be messed up. sometimes being from down there, the sometimes the state of the blackness we exist in, of course it's amazing to be a black man, but also it makes your soul tired. so it's about those three states. those three things. and how i got away from them, like why they're that way, what we can sort of do to deal with them in our daily lives. >> jimmy: there it is. van lathan jr. the podcast is "higher learning." thank you, van. we'll be back with becky g.!
