Subtitles:
>> Jimmy: YOU'LL BE OKAY. I'LL GIVE YOU A LITTLE RUB LATER IN THE SHOW. DO YOU GIVE ANYTHING UP FOR LENT? >> IT IS INDICATIVE OF WHO YOU ARE. PEOPLE TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE WHEN THEY TELL YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD GIVE UP FOR LENT. I'LL SAY, WHAT SHOULD I GIVE UP FOR LENT? AND MY WIFE IS LIKE, COMPLAINING. [ LAUGHTER ] >> Jimmy: IN SHARING THAT STORY, YOU'RE KIND OF COMPLAINING. >> COME ON! >> Jimmy: YOU WON'T DO ANYTHING. WILL YOU GIVE UP ANYTHING? >> I TRY FROM TIME TO TIME. YOU'RE CATHOLIC. I TRY TO THINK OF THINGS. LIKE YEARS AGO, I WOULD SAY GIVE UP CURSING. AND SAYING BAD WORDS. I DO PRETTY WELL. EVEN JESUS WOULD SAY, UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES -- HE WOULD REALLY BE FREAKED OUT. THE GUY STEALS YOUR PARKING LOT. YOU'RE LIKE -- [ APPLAUSE ] >> Jimmy: I'M SURE YOU HEAR IT ALL THE TIME BUT I LOVE IT WHEN YOU DO PRESIDENT TRUMP. I THINK IT IS THE GREATEST. I REALLY DO. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >> Jimmy: IT'S SO GOOD. >> I NEVER IN MY LIFE WOULD SAY, I NEVER IMITATED HILL. LAUREN CALLED ME AND SAID, DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS? NO. I DON'T WANT TO BE TRUMP ON TV. ANY TIME YOU HAVE ANY MIMICRY, IT IS USUALLY SOMEONE YOU APPRECIATE. I DON'T HATE TRUMP BUT I DON'T WANT TO DO. THAT YOU'VE SEEN "SNL." THE MOMENT THE STAGE MONDITOR TOOK ME THERE, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. MY EYEBROW OUT. I TRIED TO STICK MY FACE OUT. I WAS IN THE MAKE-UP ROOM. THEY'RE PUTTING MY WIG ON. AND IT WAS LIKE A SCENE FROM A MENTAL HOSPITAL. I'M SITTING THERE THE WHOLE TIME GOING -- AGAIN AND AGAIN. UNTIL, SO YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT IT. >> Jimmy: I'M SHOCKED BY THAT. I FIGURED IT WAS SOMETHING YOU'VE BEEN DOING. >> I WORKED ON IT FOR MONTHS. >> I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW. THERE IS A GUY ON THE INTERNET. IT'S INTERESTING HOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO, NOW THAT HE'S NOT GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS DINNER, THERE ARE PEOPLE LOBBYING TO PLAY TRUMP AT THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS DINNER. PEOPLE WOULD SAY, WOULD YOU DO IT? NO, PLEASE, I'M THEON MAN WHO SHOULD PLAY TRUMP. AND THEY'RE KIND OF, LIKE A LOT OF TRUMP COMPETITION. >> Jimmy: YOU OWN IT. NO ONE WILL TOP YOU. >> THEY SAY I SUCK! >> Jimmy: THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU ARE. >> I CAN'T SAY BAD WORDS BECAUSE I GAVE IT UP FOR THE LENT. >> Jimmy: THERE'S ONE GUY LOBBYING. IT SHOULD BE WHOEVER THE PRESIDENT HATES SEEING DOING AT THIS TIME MOST. THAT'S UNDER DOUBTEDLY SO. WOULDN'T YOU LOVE TO WATCH HIM WATCHING YOU DO YOU AND HOW MAD THAT MUST MAKE HIM? >> PEOPLE SAY, WHAT WAS YOUR WHOLE GAG? YOU KNOW AS WELL AS DO I, YOU'RE VERY FUNNY. YOU CAN KIND OF SUGGEST THE VOICE OR THE WAY THEY LOOK. YOU HAVE TO TRY TO THINK OF WHO HE IS. I'VE SAID THIS COUNTLESS TIMES. TO ME, HE IS ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR A STRONGER BETTER WORD AND HE NEVER FINDS IT. SO WHENEVER DO YOU TRUMP, THESE PEEL, THEY'RE GREAT PEOPLE, THEY'RE FANTASTIC PEOPLE, AND I WANT TO SAY WORKING WITH THEY WILL WAS -- AND THEN HE GOES OVER ON FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE. >> Jimmy: HE'S A THESAURUS. >> HE IS. A PAMPHLET THESAURUS. >> Jimmy: DO YOU FEAR -- I GUESS YOU THE DON'T RUN INTO THE PRESIDENT. >> I'M WITH MY ASSISTANT IN MANHATTAN GETTING A CUP OF COFFEE. I RUN INTO TONY CUKUSHNER. AND HE TURNS TO MY SISTER AND SAID IS THIS YOUR TASTER? >> Jimmy: I DON'T THINK YOU'LL DO THAT. IN A WAY YOU'RE SAFER NOW. HE WOULD BE THE FIRST SUSPECT IF YOU WERE TO BE, IF YOU WERE TO BE KILLED, I WOULD START AN 137 00:04:29,436 --> 00:00:00,000 INVESTIGATION AND START RIGHT AT
