11:36 pm
for coronavirus. when the news broke, the coronavirus was like, damn it, i knew i should have worn a mask i hope rudy's okay when they did his nasal swab, it came out black. apparently the doctor asked, when did you start feeling a a little off and rudy said, right around 2009 it keeps getting worse for rudy, after his test showed he had covid, he challenged the results in court and lost. rudy was like, how could this happen all i did was travel around maskless and use whatever i found laying around to wipe my face al at first it was hard to tell, always looks like he has a fever. well, the good news is, giuliani already tweeted that he's getting great care and feeling good yeah, nurses have been giving him iv fluids, which rudy promptly sprays out of his face
11:37 pm
like a lawn sprinkler. i hope rudy's getting good care, because if he picks medical experts like he picks legal experts, his doctor is going to be some random guy he found at an applebee's happy hour yeah, rudy said he's feeling good, but will be back to embarrassing himself on camera in no time >> hang on, did you say giuliani got covid >> jimmy: yeah, that's what i've been saying >> giuliani bingo. >> jimmy: no way, you got giuliani bingo >> yeah, man >> jimmy: double check your card, what else? >> audibly farted during a a hearing. >> didn't bother to interview a single witness >> brought a lady to court who seemed to be drunk >> the poll book is completely off. >> i have wiped his face with a rag he just blew his nose into >> that is true. >> and finally, hair dye melted
11:38 pm
off his face giuliani bingo, man. >> jimmy: you won, you've got one giuliani bingo your prize is $25 gift card to four seasons total landscaping, congrats meanwhile, all eyes are on georgia and its two senate runoffs. on saturday, trump held a rally for the state's republican senators, but he mostly talked about himself. here he is complaining about his own election results >> we're all victims, everybody here, all these thousands of people here tonight, they're all victims. every one of you >> jimmy: and judging by the number of masks i saw in the crowd, he's right. even rudy giuliani saw that and said -- you fools! you fools! but in the end, trump knows there's a lot on the line in georgia, so he made sure to deliver a compelling closing argument for the republican candidates watch.
11:39 pm
>> blueberries, peppers, squash and cucumbers. who does cucumbers around here because i like cucumbers, i'm the only one, i like cucumbers >> jimmy: well, last night there was supposed to be a a debate for georgia's runoff between democrat john ossoff and republican david perdue, but perdue didn't show up, so look what happened >> democrat john ossoff is ceo of insight twi, media production company that investigates corruption, organized crime and war crimes for international news organizations. republican david perdue has served in the u.s. senate, declined to participate in this debate and is represented by an empty podium >> jimmy: afterward the podium was kicking itself like i blew it, i totally froze.
11:40 pm
yeah, it was a rough night for the podium halfway through the debate, a fly landed on it unbelievable, unbelievable meanwhile, today at the white house, trump gave the medal of freedom to a legendary wrestling coach from iowa. but listen to what he said at the ceremony >> he won 117 consecutive matches and lost only one. you know in politics, i won two, so i'm 2-0, and that's pretty good too. we'll see how that turns out >> jimmy: at that point, trump took back the medal of freedom and gave it to himself i'm undefeated, and you're not trump's 2-0 claim would have been more convincing if half the people in that room weren't moving guys. all right. want to go diagonal with this? through the door yeah here's some music news, bob dylan just sold his entire songwriting catalog to universal in a giant record-breaking deal
11:41 pm
i'm thrilled for bob dylan, but if i see "blowin' in the wind" in a gas-x commercial, i'm going to freak out that's right, bob dylan just sold his entire music catalog for over an estimated $300 million it's one of the biggest music publishing deals ever. and this is real, here now on the phone to talk about this enormous deal is bob dylan himself. bob, are you there okay well, how do you feel about this record-breaking deal?
