[ laughter ] >> jimmy: he called a dude named marty walsh who lives in boston. >> steve: yeah, come on! >> jimmy: but in biden's defense, it's pretty hard to find a guy in boston who isn't named marty walsh. it's like, "hey, you marty walsh? i'm marty walsh. yeah, i work with your brother marty walsh." [ laughter and applause ] everyone's name is marty walsh.
12:39 am
i feel so bad for that dude. man, he can't win. [ laughter ] this is kind of sad news. blockbuster announced that it will close all of it remaining stores in the u.s.

[ laughter and applause ] "craziest week, i really messed up, bro." i saw this on bethenny frankel's show. we love bethenny. but she had this guest on the show who was a medium. she was a medium, and this person was trying to connect members of the audience with people who had died. and to be honest, it really seemed like the medium was struggling. take a look at this. >> i feel like i'm around here, and i'm getting somebody.
12:41 am

[ laughter ] "i won't skip any more lectures and i'm going to bring my dad to the next one." [ laughter ] "i'm sure i'll get an a in this class after seeing those double d's."

[ laughter ] next one from @mandyspells. she says, "i would be able to switch between being a guy and a girl so i could have free drinks when i want, but pee in a urinal, too." [ laughter and applause ] good idea, mandy. >> steve: way to win. >> jimmy: it's a win/win, man.

12:51 am
so we thought it would be fun to have one of our writers, who isn't as popular as katy perry. his name is arthur. [ laughter ] yeah, not even a popular name. [ laughter and applause ] his parents don't even follow him. yeah, i know. we wanted arthur to tweet out the exact same thing as katy perry throughout the week -- different tweets of hers. and see who gets more retweets, him or katy perry. let's bring him out and see how he did. arthur, come on out, buddy.

12:52 am
couple of days you've actually been getting more retweets. >> yeah, and it's been a great experience for me because i usually get zero retweets. >> jimmy: good for you. well it sounds like you might have a chance this time. who knows, you might even get more retweets. so now, how many retweets for that tweet do you have?

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. we love it when you're here. >> i do, too. >> jimmy: thank for coming back. big week in politics but also a big week in general for you. you were on "the simpsons."
12:58 am
>> i know. i've had a lot of really great things happen in my life. i've had a great life. i have the best job in the world. but being drawn on "the simpsons?" i sort of feel like i quit. i'm done. this is it. >> jimmy: that's it. i'm out. >> nothing else happens. >> jimmy: what an honor. >> this is the pinnacle of my existence. >> jimmy: what does it feel like? >> i feel small and yellow and i have a little cup with a tea bag. it's just -- i mean, i think about the things that i want in life that i don't have. like i'd like to be able to fly with one of those little jet packs like we used to have. i used to imagine that we would have by this point. we used to have. you know what i mean. >> jimmy: no, i know what you meant. >> you know what i mean. >> jimmy: no, you always see in those -- the future is here. then it never existed. >> jetpack. maybe we'll get that someday. >> jimmy: dipping dots. [ light laughter ] >> i'd like to be able to catch fish really easily. i go fishing a lot. i'm really bad at it. like someday that might happen. that's it. i'm on "the simpsons" those are the only other things i want in life. for fish to leap at me when they see me and to be able to fly. >> jimmy: we could get one of the guys from the fishing channel to help you out. >> really?
12:59 am
>> jimmy: yeah. is there a fishing channel? >> do you know a flying channel? >> jimmy: of course. yeah, yeah, yeah. we got a jet pack channel. it's all on comcast. it's in the family. [ light laughter ] comes with the cable package, like it or not. what's the flying channel? but did they just call you and say would you do a voice on it? >> yeah. i thought they were kidding at first. or i thought it was going to be like a pantheon of people you've really not heard of from cable. >> jimmy: no. >> but it's really me. >> jimmy: people know you, of course. what is the back story of you on "the simpsons?" >> the back story is my media career started in springfield with kent bachman. kent an i used to have a show together. and i -- when i got hired to go to cable news i asked kent to come with me. he was like "no, no, i think i'll stay in springfield." and so i come back to visit springfield and he's very bitter. [ light laughter ] very, very bitter. >> jimmy: i love -- we actually have a clip. rachel maddow being very funny in a recent episode of "the simpsons." check it out. >> hello, kent. >> well, well, well rachel maddow. everyone came back for chip's funeral. >> i was flying from d.c. to new york, and of course, i had the layover in springfield.
1:00 am
how's the gang at channel 6? >> look, let's get this out of the way. just because we both worked at channel 6 and you made it big and i didn't doesn't mean i'm bitter. >> is that your car? >> maybe. >> kent i'm going to tell you the most important mistake you ever made after this break. so kent, that mistake you made, that fundamental, life-changing error, that cosmic fail that -- >> just tell me already. >> after this break.

1:01 am
stuff. actually a big deal happened today, big civil rights thing. >> yes. sort of -- i guess we sort of maybe thought it might be coming, but it was still a surprise when it finally happened. it's a big gay civil rights bill that passed the senate. it first got introduced 40 years ago and it finally passed today. basically a law that says you can't be fired for being gay. which is not the law in 29 states. >> jimmy: how is that possible? >> in 29 states if your boss thinks you're gay or finds out that you are gay you could be fired for that and it's totally legal. >> jimmy: really? >> so, it passed the senate today. >> jimmy: was it passed by vladimir putin or something? [ laughter ] >> exactly. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah, and so, it's weird. it's one of these things where people think it's already illegal to discriminate that way. >> jimmy: of course. >> and in 21 states it is. but in 29 states it's not. what passed in the senate today would make that national law. already you can't fire somebody because of their race, or their gender, or their age, and this would just add sexual orientation and sexual identity to that. >> jimmy: good. well, i'm glad. that's amazing. [ cheers and applause ] good stuff. >> it is good.
1:02 am
it's passed the senate. and one thing that was nice about it is that it was totally bipartisan. 10 republicans joined in. but the republicans control the house. in the house the republicans say they will not even allow it to be voted on. if they did put it up for a vote it would pass, i think. but they won't even allow it to be voted on. which is hard to believe in 2013. >> jimmy: that's why i stick to my show. because i can't wrap my head around how people make these decisions. it's just crazy. >> the weird thing is that they're trying to say one of reasons they don't want to vote on it is because it's already the law? which it's not already the law. [ light laughter ] wait, no, no. you guys need a different strategy. people can look that up. but they don't mind. >> jimmy: they don't mind, no. but the republicans had a pretty good weekend. we have a new jersey governor christie. >> yes. they re-elected chris christie. >> jimmy: love chris christie. [ applause ] they got chris christie. >> he won by like 22 points. >> jimmy: that's crazy, right? >> he wanted to win by a huge margin. he got a really big margin. the thing that's going to happen in new jersey now, and
1:03 am
chris christie will talk to you, so you should ask him about this. he's pretty clearly going to run for president. how is he going to act towards new jersey while he's doing that? because like when mitt romney was governor of massachusetts, i live in massachusetts. and when he was running for president he just spent his whole time as our governor traveling around the country talking to republican audiences about how much massachusetts sucks. terrible. what an awful place. >> jimmy: he's in iowa campaigning. >> he'll be like, "don't you feel sorry for me? i'm from terrible democratic massachusetts?" very insulting. >> jimmy: do you believe him when he says he won't even be around? >> if he's going to be running for president in 2016 he pretty much has to start spending all his week ends in iowa. and then week pretty soon it will be his weekdays in iowa, too. an new hampshire and all the rest -- >> jimmy: start campaigning. it starts now. >> it starts really, really soon. and so -- >> jimmy: you think he's gonna be the front runner clearly, right? >> well -- >> jimmy: for the republican party? you don't think? >> it's hard to know. i mean, the republicans when they talk amongst themselves, sometimes they let me listen. >> jimmy: aha. >> when they talk amongst themselves they tell themselves that they made a mistake in
1:04 am
nominating a relatively centrist guy in john mccain who lost and a relatively centrist guy sort of in mitt romney who lost. in republicanville the reason they lost the last two presidential elections is because they didn't pick somebody hardcore enough. they didn't pick somebody who was conservative enough. so they think -- republicans are telling each other the story that chris christie would be making the same mistake they made in the previous two elections. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> i think it's amaze-balls that that's how they think about it. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: i love the amaze-balls. it's a great word. >> definitely pick the craziest guy you can find. that's your ticket for success. >> jimmy: i think if they do it right that i think that's the only move that i can see as just an outsider. i'm not following anything. >> who knows who the democrats are going to pick, though? it's very hard -- >> jimmy: i know, right? >> everybody thinks it's going to be hillary clinton. if it's not anything could happen in that matchup. >> jimmy: it's so interesting. >> republicans are so mean to chris christie. like the real conservatives, they really, really hate him. >> jimmy: they don't like him? >> yeah. >> jimmy: it's so odd.
1:05 am
who do we have now? deblasio is our mayor. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he's great. but it was bloomberg forever. and he's republican. >> and an independent and -- >> jimmy: kind of, right? >> bloombergian. >> jimmy: is that a party? bloombergian? >> in his house. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: he was a democrat, right? bloomberg? >> by the time he was running for mayor he wasn't anymore. he became a republican in order to run and stopped being a republican and he was an independent. it's weird. the rest of the country thinks of new york as this icon of liberalism. but there hasn't been a democratic mayor of new york in 20 years. deblasio will be the first guy since '93 that's a democrat. >> jimmy: i like the guy. i think he's cool. here he is. here's his family. >> this is what america -- when america imagines new york city's as mayor and his family, finally we are living up to it. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that's what a family in new york is. >> yeah. it's been a republican billionaire forever but now we've got a liberal democrat and his awesome interracial family. >> jimmy: i love -- i was like --
1:06 am
i called questlove. i'm like, "this guy's totally stealing your look, dude." [ laughter ] i mean, i was so -- i was like, come on. doesn't have a pick. yeah, exactly. every time we have you on the show i have to ask you always to make me a cocktail because i don't know -- you're the best ever. >> you're a good little drinker. don't feel bad. >> jimmy: thank you.
