  • -Welcome, welcome, welcome, to "The Tonight Show,"

  • ladies and gentlemen. [ Cheering ]

  • This is very exciting.

  • My guest tonight is the 44th

  • President of the United States, Barack Obama.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪

  • That's right. President Obama is here

  • promoting his 768-page book, "A Promised Land."

  • And I promise you, the first three pages are amazing.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • 768 pages, that's like combining all the books

  • I've written and adding another 750 pages.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • This is the fifth book that he's written.

  • He's also wrote, "Of Thee I Sing,"

  • "The Audacity of Hope," "Dreams From My Father,"

  • and the young adult sensation, "Vampire College."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Well, guys, last night, President-elect Joe Biden

  • and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris

  • did their first joint interview

  • since the election with CNN's Jake Tapper.

  • Biden did most of the talking,

  • and Harris was there to back him up.

  • It was like he was on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"

  • and she was the smart friend he brought for help.

  • Of course, the biggest issue facing Biden is the pandemic,

  • and here he is talking about his plan.

  • -I'm going to ask the public for 100 days to mask.

  • Just 100 days to mask, not forever, 100 days.

  • -Come on, people.

  • We can wear a mask for 100 days straight.

  • We've already been doing it with sweatpants.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I think it's doable.

  • Come on, if people can find fiancés in 90 days,

  • I think we can wear a mask for a hundred.

  • Come on, right? [ Applause ]

  • Yep. Experts are calling it a smart, reasonable idea.

  • And the last time we heard one of those from a president,

  • it came from tonight's guest.

  • [ Applause ]

  • Later -- later in the interview,

  • Biden finally told the story of how he fractured his foot

  • while playing with his dog. Check it out.

  • -What happened was I got out of the shower, and --

  • -Alright, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, sorry.

  • Oh, my gosh. [ Laughter ]

  • Already way too much detail.

  • I get the -- I get the picture there.

  • It got even weirder when Jake Tapper was like, "Go on."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • It would've been fine if CNN didn't also add this music.

  • [ Sexy jazz plays ]

  • I'm sorry. Let's -- let's go back.

  • Play the clip. -I got out of the shower.

  • I got a dog, a little pup, dropped a ball

  • in front of me and -- for me to grab the ball.

  • And I'm walking through this little alleyway

  • to get to the bedroom.

  • And I grab the ball, like this, and he ran.

  • And I was joking, running after him to grab his tail.

  • He slid on a throw rug, and I tripped on the rug he slid on.

  • Not -- not very exciting story.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -I love that he says it's not an exciting story,

  • after he's already told the entire story.

  • Nothing to do with the shower.

  • Midway through, Kamala squeezed Joe's arm

  • like he was embarrassing them at a cocktail party.

  • It's like, "Okay, sweetheart, okay,

  • that's enough about the story about the --

  • the shower and the dog and the ball.

  • Okay." [ Laughter ]

  • We're going to go. Okay. That's enough."

  • Meanwhile, here's some news about President Trump.

  • Tomorrow, he's hitting the road for an important trip.

  • Watch this.

  • -President Trump heads to Georgia tomorrow

  • to campaign for two Republican senators

  • who are in next month's big runoff election there.

  • -Trump was confused. He was like,

  • "The only runoff I know are the ones dripping down

  • Rudy Giuliani's face."

  • [ Laughter ] [ Applause ]

  • It's odd that Trump is going cause

  • he lost Georgia in the election.

  • I'm sure it will be helpful when he starts his speech with,

  • "It's great to be here in Georgia,

  • a state full of backstabbers who betrayed me."

  • [ Laughter ] Well, listen to this.

  • Today, on Capitol Hill, the House passed a historic bill

  • to decriminalize marijuana.

  • That's reassuring.

  • Congress basically told Americans,

  • "We can't pass a COVID relief bill.

  • So, want to get high?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • It was a strange day at the Capitol.

  • At one point, the Speaker was like,

  • "The floor recognizes the gentleman

  • from Long Beach, Mr. Doggy Dogg.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • We will now hear expert testimony

  • from the honorable William Nelson."

  • [ Light laughter ]

  • And this is great, on the next "Schoolhouse Rock,"

  • the bill is going to be singing outside a White Castle.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • ♪♪

  • In the end, Nancy Pelosi banged the gavel and said,

  • "Okay, this bill is puff, puff, passed."

  • There you go.

  • This is cool.

  • This week, Spotify put out a thing called Spotify Wrapped

  • so you could see your most-listened-to

  • music of the year.

  • And I guess it was so popular that Apple Music

  • did their own year-in-review music, too.

  • Let's take a look at mine.

  • ♪♪

  • -♪ She's in the class A team

  • Stuck in her daydream

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Yes.

  • [ Laughter ] Exactly.

  • [ Applause ]

  • -I knew -- I knew you'd -- -Spot on.

  • -I knew you'd dig that, yeah. -Spot on.

  • -Yeah, since it's December, news outlets and websites

  • are also posting their best-of year-end lists,

  • but since 2020 was such an unprecedented year,

  • the lists look a little different.

  • I'll show you what I mean.

  • First up, "Good Housekeeping" put out the list,

  • "Top 5 Toilet Paper Alternatives."

  • Come on. [ Laughter ]

  • Also, "Entertainment Weekly" put out the list,

  • "20 Best Shows You Binged in April

  • That You Have No Memory of Now."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I watched "Hover Lander?" What was "Hover Lander?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And finally, YouTube put out the list,

  • "100 Songs to Keep Your Kids Occupied

  • That Aren't 'Baby Shark.'"

  • Oh, I want that list, actually.

  • Here's a strange story.

  • I heard about a jogger in Australia

  • who was attacked by a kangaroo.

  • And officials think it was cause she was wearing

  • Sarah Jessica Parker's brand perfume.

  • Afterward, the woman was like, "I couldn't help but wonder,

  • did my perfect perfume make that kangaroo kanga-rude?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And finally, as I mentioned,

  • we have President Obama on the show tonight.

  • And... [ Applause ]

  • This -- this is so fun.

  • I saw that he just gave Drake permission to play him,

  • if anyone makes an Obama biopic.

  • Well, we thought it'd be fun to do the opposite,

  • so we actually asked Obama to perform a Drake song for us,

  • and of course, he said no.

  • But we still found a way.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • We still found a way to make it work. Check this out.

  • -We have a great show for you tonight!

  • Guys, we have exactly 11 shows left

  • before we go on Christmas break, which means it's time

  • for that beloved "Tonight Show" tradition.

  • It's time for "12 Days of Christmas Sweaters."

  • ♪ 12 days of Christmas sweaters

  • What's on the back there?

  • Oh.

  • Oh, I get it. I get it.

  • He's either waving to a plane or that's his plane.

  • Is his plane in the air?

  • It's a lot of questions.

  • The sweater comes with a lot of questions.

  • It's great. Now, let's see

  • who's going home with tonight's sweater.

  • Everyone, look at your seat number, and you got good odds

  • because only about seven people in the audience.

  • So, this is really good.
