>> steve: from rockefeller center in the heart of new york city, it's "the tonight show starring jimmy faon." tonight, join jimmy and his guests, jon hamm, meghan trainor, musical guest meghan trainor featuring earth, wind & fire, and the legendary roots crew and now, here's your host, jimmy fallon [ cheers and applause ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: thank you very much. yeah, thank you. thank you very much. thank you. hi, nice to see you. thank you very much everybody. thank you so much. and welcome. welcome, welcome to the tonight show this is it let's get to the news and jokes. well guys, president trump has been trying everything to overturn the election and he finally got one of his cases to
11:36 pm
the supreme court. let's see how that went. >> the supreme court has shut down one of president trump's latest and last attempts to overturn the election. in one short sentence, the court denied a republican challenge to the vote in pennsylvania >> jimmy: that is amazing. they rejected trump's whole argument in one sentence [ laughter ] that is pretty much the supreme court's version of responding to a long text with k. [ laughter ] one sentence that page had less ink than rudy giuliani's face [ applause ] that's basically a tweet that went to law school [ laughter ] it is the equivalent of a judge taking off his leather glove and slapping you with it you fool all of the justices were like, "we put on our robes for this? the court really tried to do trump a favor though they figured if it was one sentence, he would actually read it.
11:37 pm
[ laughter ] for trump, it felt like applying to college and getting back a thin envelope it is like well, this can't be good [ laughter ] trump isn't giving up though he is like now it is time to appeal to an even higher court, the jedi council dear @mandalorian. the other big news is that after testing positive for covid, today, rudy giuliani was discharged from the hospital yeah another day, another rudy discharge. [ laughter ] that is right, america's mr. bean is back in action jewell didn't waste any time embarrassing himself he waved good-bye to the doctors wearing a gown that was open in the front. he was like, "i was just tucking it in. but the hospital staff doesn't have faith in rudy on his way out, he grabbed a a dunkin' donuts napkin off of the ground and blew his nose in it it's like, "hey guy.
11:38 pm
that's right, the nurses are thrilled rudy is gone. now they don't have to keep changing his head pan. [ laughter ] that is a great joke, yeah yeah, it seems like there is so much going on right now, president trump's lawsuits continue to be thrown out. people are starting to get the covid vaccine. joe exotic asked kim kardashian to help him get a presidential pardon and workers at a new york city chipotle are fighting off a horde of rats there's a lot to go over, so let's just jump in and cover it all at once. it is time for a news smash. [ applause ] ♪ first up, trump's lawsuits are not going well the supreme court just dismissed the gop's attempt to overturn the election in pennsylvania so i'm sorry mr. president, you tried your best but it just wasn't effective but you know what is effective, the covid vaccine. it is making the rounds in england. and things are looking promising. i got to say it is nice to get some good news for once, instead of news that completely melts your brain and makes you
11:39 pm
feel insane. speaking of which, joe exotic asked kim kardashian to help him get a presidential pardon. [ laughter ] joe is in prison for trying to murder carole baskin but he wants to get back into his life of wrangling tigers i mean, if we wants to wrangle large, furry beasts, he could always apply for a job at chipotle [ laughter ] a location in new york city is struggling to deal with a horde of giant rats. it's gotten so bad that four employees have been bitten that is not good they should probably all get vaccinated [ laughter ] the u.s. will start giving out covid vaccines soon. and the people that are first in line to receive them are, of course, elderly people with underlying health issues people like president trump. [ laughter ] all three of trump's supreme court nominees voted against his cause this week. losing all those cases has got to sting, kind of like when you get bitten by a rat at work. [ laughter ] they are chewing through wires and nibbling on avocados it's basically a chuck e. chipotle in there.
11:40 pm
and the workers don't stand a chance you know who else does not stand a chance, joe exotic [ laughter ] kim kardashian isn't going to save you, man. but hey, it was worth a shot [ laughter ] in conclusion, i don't think it's going to work out i don't think it's going to work out i think it's going to work out i would not work there this has been a news smash [ applause ] well, some news from overseas in russia. they are telling people not to drink alcohol for almost two months after taking the russian vaccine. russians heard it and were like we will take our chances with the virus. [ laughter ] you know it is serious because russia does not even give that warning to pregnant women. [ laughter ] meanwhile, president-elect biden is busy with the transition and today, i read he is thinking about making pete buttigieg the ambassador to china. buttigieg heard and was like, "yes, please send me to wuhan where it is safer.
11:41 pm
and apparently, biden told buttigieg to take it from me, if you work hard, you can be president in 50 years. [ laughter ] that's right, the ambassador job is way better than the one trump offered him. white house elf on the shelf here's some tech news, google just released their breakdown of 2020's most searched topics no surprise, number one was coronavirus. and number two was election results. but they also released a list of their least searched terms. the stuff that nobody googled all year check this out number five was sourdough stopper. [ laughter ] interesting. i didn't know that was a thing the fourth least searched term was facemasks with mitch mcconnell's chin on them [ laughter ] number three was just mank nudes. [ laughter ] number two was how much to hire the law offices of rudy giuliani. [ laughter ]
11:42 pm
and the number one least searched thing in 2020 was wop sheet music for church choir [ applause ] that's really more of an organ song [ laughter ] and finally, i saw that waze has a new feature for the holidays where you can have santa's voice give you directions - which sounds fun until your kids hear their dad snap at santa. all right. i heard you. it's actually just a mall santa, so every now and then, you'll hear -- 50 feet explain to me why my wife left me we have a great show give it up for the roots, everybody. ♪ >> jimmy: what a show we have for you tonight. he stars in the new movie "wild mountain thyme." jon hamm is here
