Jimmy and Tariq Debate Meghan Markle’s Engagement Ring Update
-Guys, it is summer. And here in New York City,
it’s actually supposed to be in the high 80s, low 90s,
and humid all week. For the five-day forecast
in the local news, instead of showing the sun, they just used
five middle-finger emoji. -Really?
[ Laughter ] -This is very exciting.
We’re just one day away from the very first Democratic
presidential debate, and it’s right here on NBC. That’s a big deal.
[ Cheers and applause ] We — We are doing live shows
after the debates. That’s how excited we are. And I love that it’s on NBC, because we do things
a little differently. I mean, any time our moderators
like what they hear, they press a button,
and their chair spins around. [ Laughter ] It’s gonna be fun on NBC. You know the debate’s on NBC
’cause it’s set now in Chicago. [ Laughter ] You know it’s on NBC ’cause
this is the sound they play anytime a candidate
keeps talking past their time. [ Dramatic tone ]
That’s it. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] But it’s true.
Tomorrow is the first of two debates, and we get
to see 10 candidates. I read that the better
you’re doing in the polls, the closer to center stage
you get to stand. So, Elizabeth Warren
and Beto O’Rourke will be in the middle,
while Bill de Blasio will be watching from home
in his living room. -Oh.
[ Laughter ] Wow.
[ Applause ] -“That was good. I would spin my chair around
if I said that.” [ Laughter ] That’s right.
Tomorrow, the big names are Elizabeth Warren
and Beto O’Rourke. If things go well for Warren, she might catch Biden
in the polls. If things go well for Beto, ABC might make him
“The Bachelor.” So that’s exciting.
[ Laughter ] But it should be interesting,
’cause the debates are a first chance for voters
to get to know the candidates. Take a look at everybody
who’s gonna be there. Yeah. That looks like
the lamest episode of “The Brady Bunch” ever.
[ Laughter ] ♪ Wah, wah, wa-na ♪ [ Laughter ] ♪ Wah wah, wa-na ♪ ♪ Wa-na, wah, wah wah, wah wah,
wah wah wah ♪ “Hi, Alice!” -“Sam’s dead.”
-“Oh, my gosh.” [ Laughter ] -“He ate too much meat.
He had a coronary.” -Oh.
[ Laughter ] -“Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!” -Explained that, wow.
[ Laughter ] Meanwhile, here’s a big story
from the White House. Today, we found out
the replacement for Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be a woman
named Stephanie Grisham. There was a lovely
ceremony today when Sarah handed Stephanie
the keys to the liquor cabinet. She was like,
“Here, you’re gonna — You’re gonna need this.
Trust me. Don’t lose it.”
[ Laughter ] Well, things are getting ugly
between the U.S. and Iran. I guess after
Iran insulted him today, Trump tweeted,
“Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement
put out today only shows that they
do not understand reality.” Trump was like,
“No one understand reality better than your reality-star
president.” [ Laughter ] “Trust me.” He then went on to tweet,
“Any attack by Iran on anything American
will be met with great
and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming
will mean obliteration.” Then Iran was like, “Okay.
Who gave Trump a thesaurus? All right, come on.
Be honest. Who did it?”
[ Laughter ] Here’s some news from overseas.
I saw that Meghan Markle recently upgraded
her engagement ring. Yep, the new version makes the
diamond look bigger than before. Some people
are pretty divided about it, but what do you think, Tariq? -Honestly, I don’t understand
why anyone would want to change a good thing once they have it.
-Wow. -I mean, we can be so focused on
material possessions these days. -That’s great.
I know what you mean. I mean, sometimes it feels like we get so caught up in upgrading
to the bigger thing or the shinier thing rather than
focusing on what matters most. I mean, whatever happened to just loving
what you already have, you know? -I couldn’t agree more, Jimmy. [ Laughter and applause ] I mean, objects — objects can only bring you
so much happiness. -That’s a great point.
I mean, life shouldn’t be about who has what
or who’s wearing who or how much
does something cost. If we keep going
down that rabbit hole, I don’t know
where it’s gonna lead us. -It’s a scary thought.
[ Laughter ] It’s a scary thought, man, but, hey, at least we always
keep each other in check. -That we do, pal.
[ Laughter ] That we do.
You know, I’m lucky that I have someone like you
who’s so down to Earth. You know?
You’re there by my side whenever I need you,
and I don’t know if I say this enough,
but you keep me grounded. -That’s my job, Jimmy. [ Laughter and applause ] That’s my job. [ Cheers and applause ] -My best friend right there.
Tariq Trotter, everyone. [ Cheers and applause ] And, finally, get this. A new study found that drinking
coffee can help burn fat. America was like, “Great.
I’ll have two mocha frappuccinos with whipped cream
