situation. >> certainly the last couple hours of that, jessica. we do think as we head overnight we'll get those to 20 to 50 mile per hour wind gusts in the mountains, but in the lower elevations pretty calm. and seven day forecast here, the fire warning expires at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. we could see it expire a little bit sooner if things calm down a little bit faster than that. but, again, everything by 11:00 a.m. tomorrow pmorning we're definitely in the downward side of that mountain wind. and we'll take you out 10 days here for san jose. and you'll see by the following weekend, not this weekend but the one after that we should have some 70s for daytime highs. so something to look forward to. >> for sure. thank you so much. >> have a good night, folks. ♪
>> steve: from rockefeller center in the heart of new york city it's "the tonight show" starring jimmy fallon. tonight join jimmy and his guests - eddie redmayne guy raz, musical guest lele pons x guaynaa, and featuring the legendary roots crew now, here's your host, jimmy fallon ♪ [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: thank you very much. oh, my goodness! hi hey everyone thank you very, very much. and welcome to "the tonight show." let's get to the news and jokes. well, guys, this morning the commission on presidential debates, which i'm assuming is just a bunch of guys with bird masks and butt panels, made a big announcement about the next presidential debate listen to this
>> the commission just announcing the next debate will be entirely virtual as the president still battles covid. the candidates will participate from separate remote locations >> jimmy: yeah a virtual debate with two guys in their 70s and a moderator in his 60s i'm sure that'll run real smooth and to make it even more annoying they're going to have trump and biden chomp on baby carrots while they talk. [ laughter ] [ chomping ] a virtual debate with trump? come on. how great would that be? it's like, "melania, what's the wi-fi password one, two, three, four. same as nuke codes." [ laughter ] yeah, a virtual debate seems like a safe idea during a phone call this morning on "fox business" trump was asked about it and here is what he had to say >> the cpd -- the commission on presidential debates announcing this morning that the second presidential debate will be virtual. are you saying you're not going to participate >> no, i'm no the going to waste my time on a virtual debate that's not what debating is all
about. you sit behind a computer and do a debate. it's ridiculous. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: trump says he won't waste time and then he went back to chatting on fox business for 55 minutes. [ laughter ] 55 minutes half way through maria bartiromo texted the host of "fox and friends" like, "how do make him stop?" [ laughter ] seriously, the call was so exhausting maria went online and booked four days at walter reed. [ laughter ] after trump stated he would not waste his time, joe biden announced he was backing out of the debate as well it's like a group text once one person bails on brunch the floodgates open and everybody jumps ship they're like, "uh, i got something too, yeah, yeah. forget about that. it's too bad for the people who were going to speak at the town hall 'cause they were really looking forward to having their questions ignored on national television [ laughter ] anyway, back to trump's phone call, maria asked the president how he's doing and it was clear that trump is having a tough time staying in quarantine listen to this >> first of all i think i'm better
when, to a point where i'd love to do a rally tonight. i wanted to do one last night. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: a rally? he's actually considering that trump's aides were like, "you got it, boss," then put him in a room with 5,000 cardboard cutouts. [ laughter ] later in the interview, trump had a sound bite that i found very interesting check this out >> and remember this, when you catch it you get better and then you're immune you know as soon as -- everything goes away for me you're immune. >> so tell me how you felt >> what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: "what? wha -- [ laughter ] i never felt better. my body is a finely tuned swiss clock. everything is in perfect working order. "so happy you're better. "what? trump suddenly turned into every grandpa when you ask how they're feeling. "what? also, minor detail, there's no such thing as being immune to covid. after he said that, dr. fauci
poured himself a big antibody cocktail minus the antibody. [ laughter ] toward the end of the interview, maria had a question about trump's current covid status and he gave her a pretty interesting answer listen to this >> you're feeling good have you been tested recently? can you tell us anything about your condition >> no, i'll be tested very soon but i am essentially very clean. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: essentially. this is kind of a binary situation. you either have covid or you don't. doctors don't say, "good news. you don't have covid any more -- more or less per se." [ laughter ] it's not very comforting you don't see a celebrity coming out of rehab like, "all good i'm essentially clean. [ laughter ] well, guys, last night was of course the big vice presidential debate between mike pence and kamala harris and everyone's still talking about it because a fly actually landed on pence's head watch this >> it's a great insult to the men and women who serve in law enforcement. [ laughter ] >> part of a pattern of
donald trump's he was - [ laughter ] >> jimmy: at that point every american was like, "os that on him or on my tv? you know vice presidential debates are boring when a fly shows up and the entire internet loses its mind. meanwhile, a bunch of other flies off camera were like, "oh, my god. i can't believe you actually did it you're a legend, dude! [ laughter and applause epic i can't believe you did it!" kamala harris was probably sitting there thinking, "i've been strong and commanding and all anyone is going to be talking about is that stupid fly. yeah, that was a tough moment for pence. although it is still not as bad as the last vice presidential debate when a barn owl attacked tim kaine. [ laughter ] yep, pence had a rough night as if the fly wasn't bad enough people also noticed there was something going on with his eyeball. look at his eye. [ audience oohs he's the head of the
coronavirus task force not really a great look when you're covered in bugs and bleeding out of your eye [ laughter ] last night's debate was an epic battle between side eye and red eye. it's a tough break for pence it's hard to shake the reputation of being robotic when you show up looking like the terminator [ laughter ] also, can you believe kamala harris had to stare at that for 90 minutes? as if she wasn't under enough pressure, she had to debate the bond villain with the leaky eye. [ laughter ] "be very careful, mr. bond." people are worried about pence because pink eye is a possible symptom of coronavirus even scarier, today pence's temperature shot all the way up to 84.6. [ laughter ] well, a lot of people also noticed that pence kept interrupting harris but she wasn't having it watch this >> this is important and i want to add - >> susan, i have to weigh in her. >> mr. vice president, i'm speaking >> i have to weigh in. >> i'm speaking. raise taxes on anybody who makes less than $400,000 a year >> you said he's gonna repeal the president's tax cuts
>> mr. vice president, i'm speaking >> well -- >> i'm speaking, if you don't mind letting me finish we can then have a conversation okay >> please. >> okay. in 1864 -- >> but i'd like you to answer the question >> mr. vice president, i'm speaking i'm speaking okay [ applause ] >> jimmy: compared to the presidential debate, that wasn't too bad although that's like comparing a five star restaurant to a waffle house at 3:00 a.m [ laughter ] that's right there were a lot of memorable moments during the debate and there are plenty of jokes to be made but if it's all right i want to take a moment to say something serious about democracy. that okay? >> tariq: you asking me? i mean, it's your show, man. you do -- do whatever you want >> jimmy: america is at an inflection point right now [ laughter ] and we as a nation have to come together to make a choice. >> tariq: jimmy, you got something on your -- >> jimmy: this country needs to ask itself some hard questions, like what is america
who is freedom and when is liberty? [ laughter ] >> tariq: that didn't even make -- you know what? i don't care, man. just keep doing your thing [ laughter ] >> jimmy: so get out there and be the change you want to see in the world >> tariq: jimmy. >> jimmy: yeah, what's up, tariq? something you want to tell me? >> tariq: i just wanted to say that was beautiful [ laughter ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you trim your beard or something you look different >> tariq: no, man. it's a [ bleep ] squirrel on my head [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: well, listen to this i saw that the governor of california has a new recommendation for residents to safely eat at restaurants during the pandemic.
>> the governor's office tweeted out saying "when you're eating out at a restaurant to keep your mask on in between bites of food. the tweet even shows an image of someone wearing a mask, then not wearing a mask, taking a a bite, and then putting the mask back on again >> jimmy: so you have to pull your mask down, you take a a bite then you put your mask back on, you chew, swallow, then repeat or you could just fill your mask with food and eat like a horse. [ laughter ] even donald trump was like - >> what? [ laughter and applause >> jimmy: "what? this is interesting. i saw that starting in november, singapore will offer cruises to nowhere so they're basically just going to go out, float, and come back so if you're tired of being cooped up at home, try it in a a smaller room that rocks back and forth. [ laughter ] normally if someone invites you on a cruise to nowhere you're like "okay, cool i'm about to be murdered. seriously, i'm pretty sure cruise to nowhere is the name of every "dateline" episode.
[ laughter ] "they had the perfect marriage then they booked two tickets on a cruise to nowhere. [ light laughter ] speaking of traveling, i saw that hotels.com is offering a stay in a pretty interesting destination. >> hotel.com is offering a a unique escape. after casting your early ballot, you can enter a contest to live under a rock during the election week. it's a man made cave built 50 feet below ground [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: the website is great it's like, "oh, we got a king sized bed. we got a jacuzzi mole people. [ laughter ] and finally, a cafe in prague is getting a lot of attention for its new dessert. check it out >> there is a cafe in prague, which is looking to, well, lighten the mood amid a slump in business because of the pandemic owners debuted a dessert cake shaped like the novel coronavirus in an effort to draw customers >> jimmy: yeah they're really into the whole theme. when you order it, the server puts it in his mouth and spits
it back into yours like a baby bird [ laughter and applause we have a great show give it up for the roots, everybody! ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: thank you everybody. thank you so much. hey, guys, as you know, small businesses have been hit hard during the pandemic. and this week, we're highlighting comedy clubs that could use a little help. tonight, we're shouting out one of the best comedy clubs in the country, the stardome comedy club in hoover, alabama. they've been family owned and operated for almost 40 years it's an institution. in addition to the shout out, we want to take it a step further. we decided to partner with our friends at indeed and they'll be receiving a check for $15,000.

[ laughter ]
next up, trump is pulling better with people who spread conspiracy theories on facebook biden is leading with people who only use the computer at the library. [ laughter ] next up, biden is leading with health care workers. trump is leading with people who think taking nyquil and dayquil at the same time cancel each other out [ laughter ] let's take a look at another poll trump is doing better with the 1% biden is leading with people who remember when you could get a gallon of milk for one cent. [ laughter ] next up, this poll found that biden is leading with people under 45 while trump is leading with people who post their google searches as their facebook status. [ laughter ] and finally, biden leads with non-white voters but trump leads with white people who have wooden kitchen signs that say "dream big, eat bigger" in cursive font [ laughter and applause that's all the time we have for "leaderboard 2020. stick around we'll be right back with more "tonight show! come on back

became like an animal sanctuary while we were there, which was -- >> jimmy: a lot of people have done this. i have a lot of friends who have done this did you get -- did you get chickens >> i mean, we are basically a parody of lockdown we do have chickens. we have five chickens whom my daughter named they're called belinda, sally henny penny, blanket, flower and henry [ light laughter ] and they arrived and they had come from -- they were sort of battery chickens, so they didn't look that well, but we kind of nurtured them to health and i spent most of lockdown running into other people's gardens trying to retrieve chickens that were causing havoc. >> jimmy: that's wild. >> my wife took great satisfaction from it, because she basically on day one kind of just bought me a drill, and gave me a drill, and just kind of said, "here learn how to use that build me a chicken hutch." and so i built a chicken hutch which is like a triumphant - >> jimmy: you built it yourself >> i did build it.
i mean, it was kind of flat packed, so i -- and i succeeded in kind of the bit where the air was meant to come in i got it a bit wrong so i ended up having to drill holes around it, but genuinely the amount of pride having built a chicken hutch gave me was sort of overwhelming >> jimmy: i just have pride because i own a drill. i've never used it but i own it i go, "i know where it is. >> i completely agree. >> jimmy: i can tell you exactly where it is. i think i have to charge it up before i use it, but the fact that i own it, i go, "if you ever need me to drill anything honey. she's like, "i'm good. >> i've got it the second you get into drilling it's just like the most satisfying thing in the world. >> jimmy: you want to drill everything >> i was sort of walking around drilling random holes in random walls, just because it gave me some odd pleasure. >> jimmy: did the chickens -- do they lay eggs >> the chickens -- you know, they started off not being that keen for laying eggs they were kind of moulting, and not that happy, and gradually as they kind of fed well, they ended up laying tons of eggs
which is great except for the fact that i loathe eggs. i kind of hate eggs. so i would sort of have to carry these eggs in in the morning. [ laughter ] not really wanting -- but doing that thing you do with your children >> jimmy: just take it away. >> we were adopted by two stray cats during the lockdown as in these two very beautiful black cats just came and started purring at our door, and so again, my daughter named them. one she called catty redmayne. and the other one had slightly spiky ears, and looked a bit terrifying she called scary catty redmayne so scary catty redmayne and catty redmayne then ended up of course coming into the house and everything, which is all great, except for i am deeply allergic to cats and so this sort of cat allergy, egg animal sanctuary thing was wonderful in theory but slightly stressful in reality. >> jimmy: dad of the year.
i'll give you props for that i could not go near -- i am allergic to cats too >> are you really? there you go, jimmy. >> jimmy: yeah we should be roommates [ light laughter ] so you just started a production on "the fantastic beasts." >> yeah, yes >> jimmy: how is everything going there? >> well, we've done a day of shooting before covid-19 really hit the uk proper. so we started on a friday and then on a sunday night it all -- we were all told to go home and then just a few weeks ago we started again, and it's a a different world, but we're so lucky to be back in work and it's interesting it's kind of like film crews are amazing people and they're very adaptable people, and so we have -- there's a lot of testing there is, you know, we're in bubbles. we're all masked, but it's been kind of -- to begin with, i thought how is this going to be and this ended up being actually kind of great so it's nice to be back at work i feel very lucky. >> jimmy: you come on my show normally to talk about
"fantastic beasts," but always it's so secretive. >> yeah. very secretive >> jimmy: you're not even allowed to tell me what it's about. >> very secretive. >> jimmy: but you showed me a trick or a move before can you tell us something about this one >> do you know what? genuinely i'm not being like sycophantic, but one of the like, joys of promoting "the fantastic beasts" movie is getting to come and force you to do some ridiculous dance move it did cross my mind i can't tell you anything about the new film, otherwise i'll, you know, someone will get furious, but there is a moment which i've been sort of working on and hoping will remain in the film, and which have been trying to find some sort of dinky little thing that i can teach you to add so i can't -- i couldn't do it now, but i'm hoping that come november we'll have another. we can add one more move we should go dancing one night and just beast those "fantastic

on chicago or came to chicago to protest the vietnam war, at the democratic convention there. and the city had sort of been made into a military state by mayor daly and riots broke out between the protesters and the police and following year, some of the most prominent and kind of infamous figures within the protesters went on trial and they were tried by the government for conspiracy and inciting violence. and it was just -- it was the most extraordinary trial that transfixed the nation. it was theatrical. it was funny and at the same time it was deadly serious and it was something i didn't know anything about when i was sent the script but i found it -- i couldn't believe that it was a moment in history i hadn't known about and it's -- yeah, it's -- and it plays to all of aaron sorkin's genius in it. >> jimmy: yeah, it is written
and directed by aaron sorkin, who i am a huge fan of we've had him on the show. is this the first time you worked with aaron sorkin >> it is it is. and he - >> jimmy: what's he like on set? was he -- did you -- did you bother him like "hey, tell me everything or --" do you have to talk really fast - >> you know what, it's funny you should say that because there was a moment when a wonderful british actor alex sharpe and i were prepping and we were rehearsing together the two of us just a scene and it was kind of working but we weren't making it fly. and one of us suddenly -- i can't remember if it was he or i said, "how about we just walk down this really long corridor incredibly quickly and say the words as quickly as we can?" and without -- i mean, it's just sort of like it's like this joke but actually the entire scene came together and so in the film there is a moment in which we're walking through our part really quickly talking like -- the amazing thing about doing sorkin is he is just so much brighter than you are and his characters are so much brighter than you are that you get momentarily to have this speed of thought and feel slightly more intelligent than i am which was wonderful.

podcasts in the world, including "how i built this. and he's written the best selling book called also called "how i built this" which is available right now. here is guy raz. guy, thank you so much for coming back to the show and coming on. >> thank you for having me it's great to see you. seeing you is like -- it's like going back in time to a better time 'cause the last time i saw you was a better time. >> jimmy: it actually was. but you still continue to crush it i want to get into your shows. but also congrats on the book. number one not too shabby, buddy. >> thank you >> jimmy: i don't know how you had time to write a book but you're putting out new episodes of "how i built this" and you started a live version i want to talk about, the resilience series. how did this come about? was it your idea did you go like, "hey, this is a perfect time to talk to these entrepreneurs and ceos about what they're doing during covid? >> once the pandemic hit, it was clear that our community needed a gathering place, because a lot of people who listen to the show are entrepreneurs, or they have
small businesses and people were and still are freaking out and so we wanted to create a a place where we could bring on well known entrepreneurs, from like airbnb and lyft and, you know, and slack, and talk to our audience and basically describe the challenges they're facing, too. so in a way we wanted to sort of say, "look, you're not the only one and here's how other people are building resilience and here are some of the creative ways they're actually keeping their businesses alive." and it's been amazing. we're doing a video podcast twice a week we've done it since early april. it's been so fun we take live questions it's been amazing. >> jimmy: yeah let's talk about your new book it just announced that it's on the "new york times" best seller's list, and hit number one on "the wall street journal" best selling business books. congrats, buddy. >> thank you >> jimmy: i love it. i don't want it to end i'm -- thank you for autographing it for me, by the way. i appreciate that. here i have it right here jimmy, hope you like book.
guy. i mean, your handwriting is different than what i thought it would be, but interesting hope you like book well, that's interesting when you're putting this together, did you go back and listen to all the interviews you've done? i mean that -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: it seems intense >> yeah, i mean, i interview people for three or four sometimes five hours we only put an hour on the show but really what is amazing, and the insight i really walked away from after really trying to put the book together, was that entrepreneurship is actually a mindset it's a way of thinking it's a way of operating. it's a series of skills that you can learn. it's solving problems. it's overcoming obstacles. it's dealing with the fear of rejection. and the only difference between the people that i profile in the book and, you know, the rest of us, is that they walked into the phone booth and put on the cape and the idea behind the book, really, is to be the phone booth for people who are ready to put on the cape
>> jimmy: yeah anyone can do it it's just they didn't have any special skills that you don't have you know, you talk about something in the book called "the founder's dilemma" which i find very interesting. this is when a company becomes a success and the founder has to choose between having his company, having control of the company or selling it for a lot of money >> right >> jimmy: you say there is a a third option >> there is, right it sounds very simple but it's happiness. like here's the thing, jimmy the vast majority, i would say virtually every person who's been on "how i built this" whether howard schultz of starbucks or the founder of class pass, they don't go into starting a business to become rich they go in to solve a problem because a business essentially, that's what it is. there's a problem and i'm going to solve it with a product or service. right? >> jimmy: yeah >> so howard schultz wanted to solve it by brewing better coffee and payal kadakia wanted to solve it by creating a more efficient way to sign up for fitness classes.
the reality is many of the founders i've interviewed who have sold their businesses too early have walked away with a lot of money but in many cases it hasn't left them happier because what really motivates them is the camaraderie of a team, is a sense of purpose, is a a mission, right and so that's what gets us out of bed in the morning. it's not having piles of money it's having a mission. having a sense of purpose. it's having a reason to take on the world. and i found that again and again with founders and i think that's really what makes entrepreneurship so special is that the vast majority of people who go into it don't do it for the money >> jimmy: who is the founder of dropbox? >> drew houston is a great example. he is going to be on the show in a couple weeks. i mean, he is worth billions of dollars. >> jimmy: yeah >> he didn't go into it wanting to, knowing he was ever going to be a billionaire. and to him it's just a number on paper but i asked him in my interview recently, you know, what do you think? he is only 37 years old.
what do you think about the future do you want to sell and walk away and, you know, kind of just live your life sipping margaritas on the beach? he said, "no there's no way i would want to do that for the exact reasons i just described because there is a mission. there's a team there is a reason. there are problems to solve. that's what motivates him. that's what gets him excited >> jimmy: i just want to say please keep doing what you're doing because we need it right now more than everybody. guy ra, everybody. his book "how i built this" is available now. and when you come back, i really want an actual signed copy if you don't mind >> i promise >> jimmy: guy raz, everybody we'll be right back with lele pons and guaynaa. stick around ♪ when was the last time your property tax bill went down?
what? never. are you kidding me? for years, the residential burden has gone up. while the corporate burden has gone down. prop 15 reverses that. it closes corporate loopholes and invests in schools, small business, and firefighters. and when the big corporations pay more, your tax bill goes down. that's right. a savings of a hundred twenty-one dollars a year for the average home. give homeowners a break. vote yes on 15.
