>> steve: from rockefeller center in the heart of new york city, it's "the tonight show starring jimmy fallon." join jimmy and his guests -- kevin james, lenny kravitz, comedian nate bargatze and featuring the legendary roots crew and now, here's your host, jimmy fallon [ applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, everyone thank you very much. welcome, welcome, welcome to "the tonight show. let's get to the news and jokes. well, guys, it was just another crazy week and tonight president trump did his first on-camera interview since he got covid.
let's see who he decided to talk to. >> he have just learned this morning that president trump is set to appear in his first on-camera interview tonight and will apparently get a medical evaluation, not by the white house physician, but by a doctor on fox news, according to the cable network [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's right trump got a remote medical evaluation it's like a zoom physical. it was a tough choice for tv viewers, yankee playoff game, nba finals or hearing about a 74-year-old man's body [ laughter ] "can we catch all three? no, you can't. the medical exam on tv i feel like trump is one step away from taking the covid test on "maury. [ laughter ] "you do not have the virus." [ drumbeat ] i'm sure the guy who evaluated trump is qualified i mean, to be a fox news doctor you have to go to medical school in queens for a whole three hours. [ laughter ]
it was really bizarre television, especially when trump told the doctor, "might as well check my prostate while i'm here." [ laughter ] at least trump seemed like he was in a playful mood during the exam when the doctor said he would need a sample of his blood, urine, and stool, trump gave him his underwear [ audience oohs "come on it's a classic, it's a a classic. [ laughter ] i never really seen him laugh, trump. right? what does he laugh like? [ laughter ] like, a silent laugh >> tariq: muppet yeah >> jimmy: yeah, like a muppet. >> tariq: or maybe like a robot like ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: or maybe like, you know. some people laugh like ernie, too like - [ laughter ] >> tariq: oh, yeah yeah, that's a good one. yeah >> jimmy: yeah, that's a good one. [ laughter ] actually, i was impressed with the doctor he remembered every single word trump told him to say. [ laughter ] that's right, trump was given
a virtual medical exam on tv i guess that explains this promo i saw. >> tonight, president donald j. trump undergoes a complete physical on "tucker carlson tonight. that's why you should watch cnn. check your local listings. [ laughter and applause >> jimmy: the last few days, trump has been all over fox news last night, he called in to sean hannity at this point, even regular fox news viewers are like, "this guy again? [ light laughter ] by now any time trump calls fox news it comes up as potential spam [ laughter ] during the interview, trump didn't sound too good. take a listen to this. >> i think the first debate -- [ clears throats ] excuse me, on the first debate, they oscillated the mic. absentee is okay, because absentee ballots - [ clears throat excuse me. absentee ballots >> jimmy: wow. that's great the president of the united states is slowly turning into the mucinex monster [ laughter ]
a second later, trump was like, [ coughing ] "sorry, hair ball." [ laughter ] hannity then tried asking trump if he'd been tested for covid and trump wouldn't give a clear answer listen to this >> have you been tested recently >> more sooner, maybe. yeah, i just saw the doctors today. they think i'm in great shape. i'm in great shape i know i'm whether i'm great shape or not >> did you test negative >> and i took this regeneron - >> have you had a test since your diagnosis a week ago? >> well, what we're doing is probably the test will be tomorrow but they found very little infection or virus, if any [ laughter ] >> jimmy: so the answer is no. [ laughter ] his doctor will only examine him on tv from 200 miles away. i think it's safe to say he's still positive it's like being asked, "how did your history test go?" and you go, "yes." [ laughter ] later in the interview, hannity asked trump what he thought would happen under biden's environmental plan he had a pretty interesting
response >> i mean, they literally want to take buildings down and rebuild them with tiny little windows, okay? little windows so you can't see out, you can't see the light [ laughter ] >> jimmy: "rebuild them with tiny little windows so you cannot see light." is he attacking the democrats or writing a haiku [ light laughter ] i'm worried about trump, but later he was like, "to the window, to the wall, 'till the sweat drop down my - [ coughing ] hair balls." it didn't stop there trump then talked about california's water situation listen to this >> look at where california is going to have to ration water. you know why because they sent millions of gallons of water out to the sea, out to the pacific. because they want to take care of certain little tiny fish. [ laughter ]
they're not doing very well without water, to be honest with you >> tariq: no [ laughter ] no no, man. >> jimmy: it's real, no, that is his - >> tariq: this is the news you do not need. y'all did that >> jimmy: that is -- i swear >> tariq: there's no way [ laughter ] >> jimmy: tiny windows, tiny fish he sounds like those youtube video of kids after they get their wisdom teeth out [ laughter ] then today trump called into rush limbaugh's radio show for two hours. and at one point, he dropped an f bomb talking about iran. listen to this >> and iran knows that and they've been put on notice if you [ bleep ] around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: when mike pence heard trump curse, he took two flies and stuck them in his ears [ laughter ] "not today, satan. [ laughter ] trump says he's feeling better and doctors are crediting his recovery to advanced treatments, including a steroid.
but i don't know if it's the best choice for trump. take a look at this ad i saw the other night. ♪ >> reclaim the day with dexamethasone, dexamethasone has been used to treat moderate to severe cases of covid-19. while effective, dexamethasone isn't for everyone you shouldn't take dexamethasone if you have a twitter account, can make a phone call and suddenly your voice is on tv, or if you can order a nuclear launch side effects may include mask intolerance, thinking you're immune to diseases you currently have, chronic all caps syndrome, sudden rambling interviews on "hannity." and infini-tan dexamethasone, oh, yeah, your boy be tripping.

"honey, any headway with the job search?" "no, but i made a couple of -- couple dog holes."

we had a very -- we had a very challenging relationship, although we loved each other very much, but we, you know, we had our challenges and in writing the book, i was able to step back and see people and my father -- like characters and i was able to really have a clear look at my father for the first time and i saw him as a man just trying to get through this life experience with what he had. and it was -- it was really healing. i fell in love with my father all over again through writing this book. >> jimmy: you're very humble in this book. because when you look at it and you go, "dude, it's lenny kravitz, you're an icon. you're a stud, you're talented, you can play, you can write. but in this, you're growing up and you have different phases of singing and who you want to be

invites me to go on this tour, and it was amazing and except one night, he called me to come out to do maggie's farm and he like, "come out, come out. and i didn't know the words. like, i know some of the words, so i kind of mumbled through it, which i guess, kind of, is the gig anyway, right? >> jimmy: and it's bob dylan, so you were probably going like, "this is crazy, i'm jamming with bob," but "maggie's farm," that's the one he wanted you out there for. >> that's the one, that's the one. >> jimmy: i love the book, again. who did you think this book is for? >> i think, you know, the thing i've been hearing a lot of, which -- i'm happy about is -- you know, it shows people that you really have to find your lane, your destiny and to also stick to your dreams and to your thought
process of how you think you should be. you know, i was offered so many record deals and opportunities, and there were a lot of open doors to me. but just because you have open doors in your life doesn't mean that you have to walk through them you know, some are just to look into you know, for me, it wasn't about money or fame. i turned down many deals as you -- as you can read in the book, because they wanted to change my vibe, my expression, my whole thing, and i waited until i actually found my sound and was able to, you know, sign with a label who was willing to allow me that and to allow me to develop >> jimmy: that must be so hard - >> it's all about that journey of finding your voice, whatever that means in whatever field in your life. >> jimmy: the book is called "let love rule." it's available now everyone, pick it up it's fantastic lenny kravitz, we love you buddy. come back whenever, whenever,

tour one of our favorites please welcome the very funny, nate bargatze. [ cheers and applause >> this is it. what a year. 2020 it's been one of my favorites. i can tell you one thing that is canceled for sure, coughing in public. [ light laughter ] that's over. you just -- you go into a restaurant and just drink water wrong, you've just got to get up and go to your car and drive home the whole restaurant just stares at you. it's going to be hardest on my parents, because my parents, there's nothing more that they love that be coughing in public it's one of their favorite things to do i mean, i haven't had a conversation with my dad in ten years without him choking the whole time [ light laughter ] and you have to go to a restaurant now too, they take your temperature it's a teenager that doesn't know what he's doing
doesn't even hold it up near my head he's just like, 45 degrees, you're good. i'm like, "am i? he's not even fazed by it. i'm like, "dude, i think i'm dead that's not -- i should go to the hospital." everybody acted like they've already had covid. everybody is like, "i think i had it in february." you're like, "did you? [ laughter and applause they're like, "i think so. i remember i sneezed a lot one week, and then - [ laughter ] my wife and i, we have a -- we have an 8-year-old daughter, so we're having to do the virtual learning and they're like, "just do -- you know, just teach her school stuff. you're like, "that's good. i barely made it out of high school, let me give it a go. [ laughter ]
and she's doing -- she's doing common core math she brought home new math. that's what they want us to -- i don't know what this math is and they're like, "here is the new one. you're like, "oh, great, i've got to watch a 40-minute youtube video on common core math." and it's not like the old math was doing bad. it's doing great it's not like we're getting incorrect change everywhere and we're just sitting there, like "this stupid old math, i wish new math would come along. [ laughter ] if you don't -- i don't know -- if you don't know common core math, it's just basically a long way to get to the same answer it's like -- it's like how can we use the entire sheet of paper for this math problem? and even when you break it down, you see old math sneak in there. i mean, you're -- you're like, that was old math right there. just do that at the beginning and we won't even have to be in
this [ laughter and applause there is -- i told my wife, "it's a long way to get to the same thing." it would be -- if you came to my house, and you knocked on the front door and you're like, "can i come in?" and i'm like, "can you come in through the back door? and you're like, "does the front door not work? it works it works fine. i use it most people still use it but the new way is to go jump the fence, come in back, and then meet me back here [ laughter ] one thing i -- my daughter does miss is she was starting to ride the bus, which was very fun. and when she first started riding the bus, we switched schools. and it was in first grade. it was the first day of school, we walked her to the bus stop.
it was a very fun day. and at the end of the school day, someone from the school called my cell phone they have my wife's cell phone and they have my cell phone. so they called my cell phone and they said "hey, do you know what bus number your daughter is supposed to be on?" i said, "i'm her dad." [ laughter ] i was like, "this is how you saw a mom and dad's cell phone and said, 'i bet the dad knows?'" i mean, do you have parents? were you raised with a family? have you ever seen families out before you thought, let's call the husband? i bet he knows [ laughter ] unless there's two husbands, you should never call a husband a day in your life i -- i would rather you ask a lady that doesn't know her walking by i think he could get to the bottom of it quicker than i can. and finally, i said "all right, i'll get her what's the name of the school? all right, that's it for me. thank you guys very much thank you.
