[ cheers and applause ] ♪
i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks for being so great about everything. that's very nice. [ cheers ] let me ask you something. i don't know. maybe it's just me. does anybody feel a little bit lighter today like some weight maybe has been lifted off of your body? [ cheers ] well, president trump is out of the country today. [ cheers and applause ] he is coming back. so calm down. the president and the first lady arrived in paris today at the invitation of french president emmanuel macron. there they are together. last time they had a handshake it lasted longer than like two of trump's marriages. [ laughter ] so all eyes were on this one. it went without incident. there was one uncomfortable moment later on. president macron's wife brigitte is 25 years older than he is. he's 39. she's 64. which you know has to be making trump's crazy orange head spin. ri
[ laughter ] for him that's about as backwards as it gets. so watch this. and you know this is the only thing on his mind. he's saying don't mention her age, don't mention the age difference. this is what he says to her. >> you're in such good shape. she's in good physical shape. >> jimmy: what goes on? [ cheers and applause ] i don't know. he's looking at a '65 chevy convertible he's admiring. only donald trump would treat a meeting with a world leader like it's a swingers key party or something. [ laughter ] trump is having a great time in paris. he ate an eclair today. he bought a beret. he even learned how to say the word "loser" in french. it's "loo-zer." [ laughter ] president trump and macron are hoping to find common ground on issues of terrorism, syria, and climate change. macron is a strong supporter of the paris accord whereas trump
sedan. [ laughter ] before he left the president, who's been notoriously stingy with on-camera interviews lately, sat down with the 700-year-old host of the "700 club," pat robertson. this is a religious television show. and donald trump is a very religious guy. so they got along just great. >> we have to bring our country back. >> yeah. >> our country was going in the wrong direction. >> that's right. >> you couldn't build. you couldn't do anything. our country was going in the wrong direction. and by the way, what they were doing to religious liberty, they were destroying religious liberty. >> that's right. >> you'll be saying merry christmas again very soon. >> jimmy: maybe even by december. who knows? [ laughter ] this is interesting. [ applause ] on the way to paris the president had some off the record conversations with reporters on air force one. and then he decided he wanted some of what he said to be on the record. so this included trump told reporters last night that he
wants the wall -- you know that wall mexico's going to pay for, very nice of them to do? he wants the wall to be see-through. [ laughter ] for real. he said, and this is a quote, "one of the things with the wall is you need transparency." and they asked why. he said i'll give you an example. as horrible as it sounds, when they throw the sacks of drugs over the wall, if you have people on the other side who don't see them, they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff and it's over. you're dead. [ laughter ] [ applause ] he's worried. our president worried that people are going to get hit on the head with drugs and die. [ laughter ] so he wants a wall you can see through. it's unbelievable. he's turning the country into an aquarium! [ laughter ] we're all going to be living in sea world under president shamu if he -- [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] you know what we need to do? i'm not kidding about this. this is a good idea. we should tell him that we think this is a great idea, this wall.
to build a wall that is so transparent it's practically invisible. here it is right here. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] he can fly in for the ribbon cutting. we'll save $2 billion. it's a great -- they should have voted for me. they really should have. meanwhile, back at the white house it's business as unusual. you know how the republicans are trying to pass this new health care plan? well, the congressional budget office, the cbo weighed in. they said if this plan they have goes through 22 million americans would lose health insurance. so the white house put out a video attacking the cbo. they wrote "cbo inaccurately estimated 25 million would be covered under obamacare." if you look closely you notice they spelled "inaccurately" inaccurately. with two ns. they misspelled inaccurately while accusing someone of being inaccurate. if that isn't -- i mean, that is the perfect -- [ applause ] that's a metaphor. that is the nut rit
shell right there. it's a total flustercuck is what it is. [ laughter ] hey, we have a good show. music from tlc with snoop dogg sitting in. [ cheers and applause ] tlc has a new album. it's their first album in 15 years. even all these years later they still don't want to scrubs. they won't even stream the show "scrubs" on netflix. that's how serious they are. [ laughter ] and 50 cent is here. his real name is curtis. miss jackson if you're nasty. [ applause ] we do our show every night from hollywood boulevard, and people pass by our studio. these people tend to have opinions, sometimes strong opinions. so we decided to have some fun with that. we went out on the street, and asked people what they think about 50 cent. and then we snuck -- well, this is what happens when 50 cent is standing right behind you. ♪ >> "outdoor living" magazine just named 50 cent the greates
do you agree with that? >> disagree. entirely. >> hell, no. >> you think you're a better rapper than 50 cent? >> i don't know, man. i don't know. i really like his music. i'm very inspired by 50. >> why don't you tell him? >> i think 50 -- i prefer lotus jackson over the current state of 50. maybe back in the -- >> listen, don't tell me, man. ♪ bottle's in the club >> tell him. >> 50 cent, man, i think -- you've got to deal with some of the youngsters -- >> no, no. right behind you. >> holy [ bleep ].

>> how do you feel now? maybe put him in the top five? >> number one. >> you say 50 cent's best days are behind him and he's pretty washed up. >> yes. i would say that. >> you think fame made him soft? >> no. i think he's moved on to other, you know, aspects of things, other businesses. who is this? wow. [ applause ] >> who are some of your favorite artists? >> i'd go with snoop dogg, dr. dre, 50 cent. you know, he's got vitamin water. he sold that. he made a lot of money. he did his movies. he kind of -- he's an active worker. >> don't let them trick you. trying to trick you with -- >> greatest rapper of all time? >> i wouldn't say he's the greatest of all time. >> where would you rank him? >> i'd say about l

mitzvah after my show. i was so moved i called my attorney to see what kind of damages i could collect.

[ laughter ] so tell me exactly -- explain exactly what's different about the way you climbed this rock wall. >> well, so what i did was climbing it without a rope or without gear. so i was just by myself in just my shoes and my chalk bag and i climbed up the rock wall. >> jimmy: the chalk wall keeps your hands dry? >> yeah, it's just like a gymnast to dry your hands so your grip stays good. >> jimmy: are you fearful when you're on the wall, when you get up 3,000 feet, something like that? >> well, i probably would be if i hadn't prepared for it. with climbing el capitan it was something i'd been dreaming about for years and i spent probably a full year in preparation. >> jimmy: how do you prepare? you go to the rei store and you climb up the -- >> exactly. you buy a little starter kit and figure it out. no, i mean, so the biggest part for me of the preparation was the visualization, the psychological side, like imagining that it was possible. and that took like years to sort of wrap my head around the idea. >> jimmy: it did. >> every time you drive to yosemite you see the wall, you're like that's a big wall. >> jimmy: has anyone else tried to climb that wall? >> no. >> jimmy: in that way. i mean, people have tried it i assume -- >> generally when you lo
fear. you're like oh, my god, that's crazy. >> jimmy: yeah, i know i am. [ laughter ] >> have you been there? >> jimmy: what's that? >> have you been there? have you seen the wall? >> jimmy: i have been there and i've seen the walls. it never occurred to me to climb one of them. there you are in the crevice. do you look for a crevice in general? >> yeah. so that's the big part of the preparation is spending time rehearsing the route, memorizing the moves and making sure the conditions are good and getting ready. >> jimmy: what do you mean rehearsing the route? it looks like you're just going up. [ laughter ] >> yeah. but so it looks like i'm just climbing, but each movement of my hands and feet is super well thought out, very controlled, very precise. i mean, in this particular clip, like every movement of my hands has been choreographed basically. i'm like executing a routine. i could actually talk you through all the moves on that particular section of wall. >> jimmy: you remember everything. >> yeah. >> jimmy: almost like a race car driver and -- >> yeah. memorizing the turns. for sure. >> jimmy: when you're on that wall and -- how long does it u?ke to climb -- did it take >> so climbing el cap took almost four hours. >> jimmy: four hours. so when you're on that wall and
you're climbing, do you ever think about falling? >> i think a lot about falling ahead of time. really. i mean, that's a big part of visualizing is whether or not you're ready to go up and take on that kind of challenge. you have to sort of think through the whole consequences. but once i decide that i'm ready then i'm 100% committed to it and i just go up to it. >> jimmy: before you do it do you write like a note to your mom or anything? >> no. that seems overly dramatic. >> jimmy: it does? >> yeah. [ laughter ] i mean, a little bit. >> jimmy: it doesn't to me. it really doesn't. but have you ever run into like a mountain lion or anything when you're doing something like this? >> not many mountain lions climb quite that well. [ laughter ] but no, you run into mice and a lot of birds. it's not uncommon to put your hand into a crack and have a bird run down your arm. >> jimmy: you have to be ready for that and prepared for the bird or the mouse. >> yeah, mice too, honestly. they run around in the cracks and stuff. i've spent tons of time on that wall with a rope on. so you sort of get used to all the various things that might happen. >> jimmy: i assume you love climbing, right? i assume you love it.
>> i do love climbing. >> jimmy: why not have the rope? because you could still get that same climbing effect -- >> so that's a fair question. i do have a rope probably 95% of the time. but then every once in a while you have that sort of peak experience where you choose not to use the rope. >> jimmy: so you get some kind of satisfaction or is it a thrill or what is it exactly? >> it's kind of like the deep satisfaction of taking on a very big challenge and then sort of making it happen. i mean, i think of it as like the super bowl of my climbing or something. climbing is such an individual sport. you just kind of do your own thing. there's no -- there isn't much competition. competition's all indoors. when i'm doing it on big mountains it's a whole separate world. you sort of have to choose your own challenges and push yourself whatever way you want to. i'm inspired by these big walls and i'm inspired by doing them by myself. >> jimmy: there was an article written about you i think in the "new york times." tell me if i have this right. but at some point during the interview you just climbed in the middle of these two buildings.
>> jimmy: were you wearing your climbing shoes or were you just in regular shoes? >> something like that you probably do in regular shoes because it's just counterpressure with -- >> jimmy: well, i couldn't but -- [ laughter ] >> no, i think you could. i think you have strong legs. you can push hard. >> jimmy: were you arrested for this or -- >> i think security may have been called later. the thing about it is you go up, you come down quickly and you leave and just never really know if anyone shows up. >> jimmy: when did you start doing this? like at what age did you just start climbing things? >> that kind of climbing in particular climbing on buildings and playing on structures, i mean, i did that since i was a little kid. you know, starting on my house probably. but then i started climbing indoors in a gym when i was 10 or 11 and i've been climbing 20 years since then. >> jimmy: and your mom was okay with you climbing all over everything? >> you know, she couldn't stop me that well. >> jimmy: i keep thinking of her because my kids -- i was on a trip once in wyoming and my kids wanted to parasail and they were like come on. and i was like you can't parasail. ey're like it's safe. and i was like it's safe for you but when you lan
be dead of a heart attack. >> mom actually when we were little kids i have this memory of her saying like you can't go on the roof, you can't go on the roof. it's really easy to climb onto the roof from the fence. i climbed on the fence, got on the roof and jumped back. and we were like we climbed on the roof. and she was like okay, if you're on the roof go ahead and clean the gutters. i was like -- all right. so for the rest of my life i've been doing all the legwork. >> jimmy: like mommy's little monkey. [ laughter ] how the hell did you not get part of spider-man? it's unbelievable. i would be so angry. [ applause ] it's unbelievable. so nat geo is doing a documentary and they're going to show the whole journey of you climbing the el capitan. >> yeah. that's correct. we've been filming a documentary for the last year with my north face teammate jimmy chan. he's been shooting the film. and the two of us have basically just spent a year documenting the process to get ready for this and then to actually climb the wall. >> jimmy: i can't wait to see
i haven't really seen any of the material yet because they're very strict about the documentary. i don't know. >> jimmy: is there anything left to climb after you climbed el capitan? is there anything bigger than that? >> not -- i mean, there are technically some bigger walls in the world but they're in very remote places like greenland or pakistan, a far-flung expedition. to me there's nothing more inspiring than el capitan. that's been my dream my whole life. >> jimmy: you're an amazing person. and you will be missed. [ laughter ] >> i appreciate that. >> jimmy: that's alex honnold, everybody. thank you, alex. we'll be right back with tlc and snoop dogg.
