[ cheers and applause ] we're at "the tonight show." and it's a good show tonight. it's a great one. but first, let's get to some
news. here's what everyone's talking about. big political news. it's being reported that hillary clinton will announce she's running for president at noon on sunday. yeah. [ cheers ] [ laughter ] god was like, "that's normally my day, but i'm way too scared of her, so i'll just let her do what she wants." [ laughter ] actually, i read that some women are concerned that hillary clinton is usually referred to by just her first name, which they say wouldn't happen if she were a male candidate. they think it shows a lack of respect. "are you sure about that?" said oprah, madonna, cher, and beyonce? [ cheers and applause ] some of the most respected people on the planet! and republican candidate rand paul -- oh, man, he's already -- [ laughter ] he's facing some criticism for appearing tense in several interviews this past week. but paul addressed the issue and said he's "universally short-tempered and testy." [ laughter ] then he said, "anyway, vote for me to run the country."
[ laughter and applause ] what? "yeah, i'm just like that." but rand paul, he addressed his tense interviews this week and said that he is "universally short-tempered and testy" and added "i think i should have more patience." [ laughter ] then he was asked why he had such a short temper. and he said, "who knows? maybe it runs in the family. i'll have to talk to my parents about that. heh, heh, heh." [ laughter ] then he was asked what he wants to do about his temper problem. and he said, "i wouldn't exactly call it a problem, but i'll have to get better at holding my tongue. heh heh." [ laughter ] then he was asked if he'll seek therapy or some counseling for his rage issues. he said, "not to repeat myself but i don't have a problem with rage. just a couple slip-ups now and then. should we move on? i think we should move on. heh heh." [ laughter ] then he was asked if he believes his ongoing anger episodes will prevent him from being president and he said, "no, it won't prevent me from being president because i'm not angry! i don't have rage! my temper is fine! so stop asking me these questions because i don't have
any damn rage! okay? huh? can you do that for me? huh? can you be a good little reporter and shut your mouth when you get the answer you're looking for?! or do i need to repeat myself?! 'cause i'm more than happy to do that! look, i don't have rage problems! i don't have rage problems! i don't have rage problems! see?! i'm doing such a good job of answering your question. i get a gold star! gold star for me!" [ cheers and applause ] rand paul finally just added "just kidding." [ laughter ] i'm not sure the joke came across. this is almost too good, this story here. chris christie, governor of new jersey. love the guy. one of our -- right? he's nice to us. he's always come on the show. i don't want to make jokes about him. >> steve: no. >> jimmy: i don't want to. [ laughter ] but then he goes and does something like this. he actually appeared on a local talk show in new jersey this week. this is real. it's called "pasta and politics." >> steve: oh, come on! [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: unfortunately, there were no survivors.
[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's right. chris christie appeared on a a talk show in new jersey called "pasta and politics." of course, when he left, it was just called "politics." [ laughter ] actually, the governor really seemed to be in his element while he was on the show. take a look at him. >> governor, we're going to take half a pint of heavy cream. >> nice. [ laughter and applause ] >> just in case -- we're going to -- >> you want me to help you with this? listen, the governor can do this. this is real. this is part of my function here. >> beautiful, beautiful. >> i opened it, i get to pour it. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: of course, he knows how to use heavy cream. he uses it to brush his teeth. [ laughter ] i don't want to make these jokes! i don't want to make these jokes. but i have one more. actually, heavy cream is christie's blood type. [ laughter ] all right, that's it. that's all i'm doing. chris, i'm sorry. come back on the show! [ cheers and applause ] oh, hey, whoa. >> steve: forget about it. [ applause ]
dvd! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, listen to this. i read that scientists in england have developed technology that allows a person to actually feel holograms by using ultrasound. when asked what feeling holograms could be used for, they were like, "don't come in here! [ laughter ] we're busy doing science stuff. lock the door! lock the door!" [ laughter ] this is cool. beginning today, all six "star wars" films are available on itunes for the first time. yeah. and it could just be me, but i think apple tried to sneak a a few changes into the movies. take a look at this scene with han solo. watch. >> everything's under control. situation normal.

guys, this is funny. there's a story about a police horse in florida named jacob that likes to paint when he's not out on patrol. [ laughter ] he likes to paint. the horse in the next stall said "hey, that's pretty good." and the cop was like, "oh, my god, that one talks." [ laughter ] a magical horse. and finally, this is going viral. two girls at an amusement park in florida went on a ride there called the slingshot. and, well, i think they quickly regretted their decision. take a look. >> i love you. and you are my best friend. and if i die, tell my mama i love her. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: that's so cute. that's so cute. tell my mom i love her. it's pretty embarrassing. i mean, who would get that scared on a silly ride?

[ cheers and applause ] >> steve: ta-da! >> jimmy: i'm so excited that baseball season's back. last night, i went to the yankees game. i had a great time. i was cheering on all the players. and i think a-rod hates me. did i tell you this? [ laughter ] i don't think he likes me. because we got great seats and i see all the yankees come out of the dugout. they'll look over at me and nod. jeter used to take his hat and i go "hey, what's up." a-rod comes out. nothing. he comes out, like, hits his cleats with his bat. and then he looks at me, and i go, "what's up?" he doesn't say anything. and then he swings his bat and goes -- [ laughter ] direct eye contact with my face. like imagining my head as the ball or something. >> steve: oh, my gosh. >> and it freaks me out. it scares me. and then he hit a home run last night. and that scared me even more, because he's probably imagining my head on the ball. [ laughter ] anyway, so i'm at the game.
amazing seats. sitting next to lorne. we're hanging out. i've been to a zillion games. minding my own business, i'm trying to cheer on my team. jacoby ellsbury comes up to bat. hits a foul ball. comes straight for my head. right? and for a second, i forget that there's a net protecting me. [ laughter ] i also forget that there was a a camera on me. >> steve: yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: anyway. take a look at what happened. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. i'm okay. yeah, i'm okay. i knocked my own hat off. the ball didn't even come close. [ laughter ] it happened so fast, i could hear the hiss of the ball. [ hissing sound ] it's like someone throwing a a cobra at you, and it almost bites you. so i don't know what i did there. i freaked out a little bit, right. big deal! >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: i reacted the way any normal man would react. >> steve: right. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: then a couple batters later, it happens again.
>> steve: what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: another foul ball right at me. now i feel like the yankees are testing my manhood. >> steve: right. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: so i did what any man would do in that situation. i grabbed my beer and i chugged it. check it out. >> jimmy: i said "that's good, i've had enough. there you go, right there." >> so quickly, 0-2. [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: come on! >> jimmy: you'd think that would be enough. now, i guess some people are saying i didn't really chug it, that half of it spilled onto my shirt. anyone who knows me knows that's not how jimmy fallon rolls. and to prove it, i've got a a beer right here.

but i've managed.e crohn's disease is tough, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb.
tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
