>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- chris hemsworth. from "the assassination of gianni versace, american crime story," darren criss. a visit from stewie and peter from "family guy." and music from elvis costello. and now, here we go again, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. very nice. thanks. hi. i'm jimmy, i'm the host. thank you for watching. thanks for coming.
i'm glad you're here. i'm glad we're all here. very nice. you know, there are a lot of things to dislike about l.a. traffic, pollution, people. but it's important i think -- it's important sometimes to stop and appreciate the fact that, a, we don't have to scrape ice off our windshield every morning. and b, i can wear the same pair of teal-colored dolphin shorts to work every day since 1985. i appreciate it, and i like to think my coworkers appreciate it, i really do. [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i just swal heed a cough drop whole by accident. [ laughter ] what i'm saying is it's a heroic act, me beg here right now. this is from loudoun county, virginia. this is a cautionary tale. it reminds us the importance of always checking for black ice before you go outside.
oooooh -- i have to say, i respect that he's able to laugh at himself enough to post that video. or more likely i respected his wife was able to laugh at himself enough to post the video. speaking of slippery places, at the white house the chief of staff, john kelley, is reportedly asking people who work at the white house whether or not they're planning to stay on the job through the end of the year. morale among staffers is reported to be low. why, i have no idea, seems like everything's going great. [ laughter ] a lot of trump staffers want out. in fact, this video captured outside the white house after an all-staff meeting. [ laughter ] seems to indicate there is some unrest. i think i saw melania in there. [ laughter ] president trump had his first cabinet meeting of the year today where, you're not going to believe this, he took time out to
reaction to his bipartisan meeting yesterday with members of congress. >> got great reviews by everybody other than two networks who were phenomenal for about two hours. then after that, they were called by their bosses, oh, wait a minute. and unfortunately a lot of those anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they've ever witnessed. >> jimmy: really. a lot of those anchors sent you letters, saying it was one of the greatest meetings ever? i bet the handwriting on those letters looks a lot like kellyanne conway's. [ laughter ] trump also unveiled one of the bigly items of his agenda for the new year. something -- this is something every american's concerned about, and that is, strengthening libel laws to punish those who publish unflattering books about you. >> our current libel laws are a sham. and a disgrace. and do not represent american values or american fairness. so we're
look at that. we want fairness. you can't say things that are false, knowingly false. and be able to smile as money pours into your bank account. >> jimmy: oh! [ laughter ] come on, now! saying knowingly false things while the money pours into your bank account? not only is that trump's business plan in its entirety -- [ laughter ] it's literally what they're going to write on his headstone. "he knowingly said false things while money poured into his bank accounts." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i really can't -- there are parakeets flying into mirrors that have more self-awareness than donald trump. [ laughter ] here's another one. trump tweeted this this morning. the single greatest witch hunt in american history continues. there was no committee lose, everybody including the dems knows there was no collusion, yet on and on it goes, russia and the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing, republicans should final
control." now first of all, republicans taking control, republicans have control of the senate, the house, and the white house. you can't give zero stars while you're driving the uber. [ laughter ] what more control can you take? [ applause ] secondly, i'm not a historian, but to me the greatest witch hunt in american history was the one where we were actually hunting witches. [ laughter ] it happened in salem in the 1600s. they executed 14 women, five men, and two dogs. even if you and everyone who work for you is innocent, which some of them have already admitted they're not that witch hunt was worse than this one. unless they're executing two of your dogs? for being witches? [ laughter ] yours isn't the greatest. even the bad things that happen to him are the greatest. and as for the part about russia and the world laughing at our stupidity, yeah, well. when you're right, you're right, that one. they definitely are laughing. [ laughter ] here's some of our stupidity. the t
directed official government websites to cut any mention of climate change or renewable energy. those phrases are not permitted to appear on government websites. which is actually a great idea. instead of solving problems, we just stop talking about them. it could save a lot of money. for example, the national cancer institute spent about $5 billion a year on research. what if instead of spending that money we changed the name of the thing to the national institute? no more cancer. [ light laughter ] well then you're not going to like the rest of this. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] well, i'll give it a try. what about the bird flu? what about ebola? we don't need to worry about ebola, we just replace the centers for disease control, we call it the centers for ease on down the road. [ laughter ] right? last year we spent $300 billion on hurricanes? change the national weather service to the national nice weather service. [ laughter ] ten-day forecast, 7
see, there's no problem that cannot be solved by sticking your head deeply enough in the sand. it's the trump way. the president, by the way, reached a major milestone yesterday. i don't feel like this has gotten enough attention. according to the "washington post," which has been keeping track i guess, yesterday trump told his 2,000th lie since taking office. [ laughter ] happy lie2k, everybody. [ laughter ] 2,000 lies in 11 months. he's averaging 5.6 false claims a day. which is impressive considering the fact he's only working about 2.6 hours a day. [ laughter ] and all the while that he's lying, he is continually imploring us to just believe him. >> we are just getting started, believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me. believe me.
believe me. believe. >> jimmy: you think abe lincoln ever said, believe me? believe me, he did not. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] the volume of fiction that comes out of his orange mouth is staggering. it's so brazen i almost can't help but admire it. i watch it and i go, 2,000 lies is an unprecedented achievement. tonight we're going to look back at his many prevarications with the mini documentary that shows us how we got to this remarkable moment in misrepresentation. >> i would say without a doubt it was the greatest achievement in the history of lying. >> to be honest, i inherited a mess. it's a mess. >> he is quite simply the babe ruth of [ bleep ]. >> obamacare covers very few people. >> donald trump makes tricky dick look like honest abe. >> i never met putin, i don't know who putin is. he said one nice thing about me,
>> he is the greatest liar of all-time. >> c-span presents, "pants of fire: the road to 2,000 lies." >> i, donald trump, do solemnly swear -- >> january 20th, 2017. donald trump puts his hand on the bible and begins a historic journey to 2,000 lies. >> god looked down and he said, we're not going to let it rain on your speech. >> and trump comes roaring out of the gate. he lies about the rain. the crowds. his "time" magazine covers. his victory marches. >> i guess it was the biggest electoral college win since ronald reagan. >> and this is week one. i said, he cannot sustain this pace. >> but trump was just getting started. by march he had amassed four times as many lies as any president had in two terms. >> you look at what's happening last night in sweden. sweden! >> sweden, that was a classic.
only trump could have lied that lie. >> you know, the cuba-americans, i have 84% of that vote. >> so many great lies. i mean, obama's wiretap? >> you saw what happened with surveillance. >> you stand by that claim? >> i don't stand by anything, i just -- you can take it the way you want. >> he even lied about lying. >> i think one of the greatest of all terms i've come up with is fake. i guess other people have used it perhaps over the years but i've never noticed it. >> then there was twitter. game-changer. >> twitter proved to be a critical platform as trump continued past 750 lies. finally hitting 1,000 lies in august of his first year. >> we've signed more bills, and i'm talking about through the legislature, than any president ever. for a while harry truman had us. >> his politifact numbers were off the charts. this is unheard of
it was in the bag. but he didn't let up. if anything, he doubled down. >> he interviewed me for three hours in the white house, it didn't exist, okay, it's in his imagination. >> after a long, arduous road, trump achieved the impossible. his 2,000th lie in office. >> we can build the wall in one year, and we can build it for much less money than what they're talking about. >> usa, usa, usa! >> what can you compare it to? michael phelps in '08? roger bannister running the four-minute mile? a young tiger woods? it's unfathomable. >> he's got three more years. or maybe even seven. or maybe six months, who the hell knows? >> president trump's miraculous milestone in mendacity seems destined to stand the test of time. >> bing bing bing! bing bing bing! >> even if it should fall to some futur
in the fake history books is forever secure thanks to his total lack of shame, unlimited capacity for [ bleep ], and his pants of fire. >> the american dream is dead. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: wow, thank you, mr. president. on behalf of a grateful nation. we have to take a break. when we come back from the break, a special visit from peter and stewie from "family guy." stick around, we'll be right back! resolution #1: binge more. join the un-carrier, and get four unlimited lines for only rty bucks each. plus, netflix for the whole family. on us. so, they get their shows... let's go, girl! you're gonna love this bit! and you get yours. watch however you want. on your phone, tablet, or tv.

i'm from the bay area, and i moved to hawaii when i was very young because my dad had a job there. i joke that's where all the half-asian babies go. >> jimmy: are you a half-asian baby? >> i am, half filipino. another woo if you're half filipino. not as many people. [ laughter ] yeah, half filipino kid. >> jimmy: your mom is filipino? >> yes, from sebu, and my dad is a good old fashioned 18ly mutt guy, so i look italian. >> jimmy: did you grow up with filipino food and that sort of thing? >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: restaurants here in town that you will go to? >> yes, funny story. just yesterday, we had the premiere for the show we'll talk about in a second. that was on monday night. so tuesday morning, i said to my mom, let's go get some really fatty, unhealthy filipino food. as you do when you want to celebrate and you're half filipino. [ laughter ] there's a restaurant that i love in l.a., shout-out to l.a. rose cafe. i go there all the time. >> jimmy: i've heard of that place. >> it's very, very
in that the guy who runs the place will give you a hard time if you don't finish your food. like a real filipino uncle. >> jimmy: he yells at you if you don't finish? >> doesn't yell, just gives you grief for it. >> jimmy: i wouldn't know, i've never actually not finished a meal. [ laughter ] i'll take your word for it. >> you'd fit right in. he continued to give me more grief. i had to shave my beard because we were still shooting this morning. made a beard and he was saying, you remind me of a guy who comes in here a lot, do you know this actor darren criss? he has a movie coming out. i'm like, oh, yeah, tell me about this guy. people try to take pictures of him, he's okay. [ laughter ] on the way out, i didn't want to be untruthful with the guy because i'm a fan of his work. i'm like, i am darren, and i really enjoy your restaurant. he goes, no, you're not darren. darren, you know, he's big. [ laughter ] so i guess -- at least it wasn't the other way ar
i wasn't the fat guy who looked like him. >> jimmy: he still doesn't know what happened. >> now he does. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: maybe he does now. you're playing a murderer. a serial killer. >> many things. a spree killer, a guy andrew, a very troubled young man who does not follow the typical prerequisites of a killer. he didn't kill small animals as a child or have a history of violence. >> jimmy: he just took to it naturally. >> i suppose so. well, such is the exploration of our show. how a kid with so much promise becomes somebody so destructive. i play him. >> jimmy: is that fun? that must be a lot of fun, to play a killer. >> i don't know if fun is the word. >> jimmy: really. >> it certainly goes to dark places. we see the good sides of him, the sad sides of him. the fun part truly if i have to be a big star gazer, i got to do the show with this insane-o cast. >> jimmy: who's in it? >> penelope cruz. >> jimmy: that's good, yeah. >> edgar ramirez.
was on our show once. i did not think, yes, penelope cruz. [ laughter ] >> well, she'll prove you wrong. of course we have international pop superstar ricky martin as well. you have latin royalty, then the half filipino dude. >> jimmy: did you hang out with these people? >> i made sure that that was going to happen. >> jimmy: i see. >> for plot reasons, you can do the math, i don't spend a lot of time with their characters at all on screen. >> jimmy: right, right. >> so i -- actually, with all due credit to ricky martin, he was very kind. he had us come over to his house several times. i'm sort of the pied piper of karaoke and sing-along situations because i usually don't bring booze, food, but i'll bring a guitar and have sing-along. that was my contribution. one of my favorite medical ease of the show, at ricky martin's house which is a place setter of, whoa, this is wacky. and i'm sitting there next to
grammys. what ricky thought would be nice as a host was he got pedicures for people. >> jimmy: what? >> so there's this -- it gets better. [ laughter ] so i'm prlaying guitar, playing "let it go." penelope is singing. i start playing one of ricky martin's songs and edgar ramirez is singing it to ricky, next to his grammys, all the while they're getting pedicures. [ laughter ] i'm like, this all comes from having done a harry potter musical? how did this all happen? >> jimmy: you're now both living la vida loca, in a way. [ laughter ] >> truly the loco-ist possible. >> jimmy: that's some life you're having. >> it's been fun, here we are now. >> jimmy: it's great to meet you. >> likewise, man. >> jimmy: "the assassination of gianni versace: american crime story" premieres one week from tonight, 10:00 on fx. it's a miniseries. be right back with elvis costello!
