11:38 pm
and did you notice this? biden was sworn in on a giant bible that's been in his family since 1893 look at this thing wow. that's not a bible you find on a dresser. that is a dresser! even the pope was like, eh, it's a little much after he took the oath, biden gave his inaugural address, where he tried to unite the country. listen to this >> at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed. and i promise you, i will fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did. we must end this uncivil war >> jimmy: yeah, that's what we need to hear i feel reinvigorated i feel like we can come together i feel like we can beat covid. i feel like we can take the politics out of buying a damn pillow of course kamala harris was also sworn in today, becoming the first woman ever to serve as vice president.

11:40 pm
jennifer lopez was fantastic garth brooks sang "amazing grace. he was great a lot of people noticed that when he was done, he left in a a hurry. watch this what was that? was his horse meanwhile, let's talk about the elephant who wasn't in the room, president trump. this morning he left the white house and delivered a farewell speech before flying off to florida. here's what he said to his supporters >> we love you we will be back in some form have a good life we will see you soon >> jimmy: i know a lot of you were expecting trump's speech to be weird and inappropriate, well, you were 100% right. we'll be back in some form who wrote this speech, voldemort? and then finally, trump boarded air force one for the last time and, as his plane took often, they were playing "my way", by frank sinatra, watch this, this is real.
11:41 pm
♪ yes, it was my way ♪ >> jimmy: yeah, trump was singing "my way", while the rest of the country was singing. we have a great show, give it up for the roots, everybody! ♪ ♪ nah, nah, nah, na hey, hey, hey, hey [ applause ] >> jimmy: what a show we have for you tonight, everybody they are the director and the star of the netflix limited series "pretend it's a city" - martin scorsese and fran lebowitz are here that show is so good, oh, my goodness he is the nominee for united states secretary of transportation -- mayor

11:43 pm
"sanders attends inauguration. but, if you only looked at the photo, the headline could have been - "stranger you asked to take your photo clearly struggling. "where's the button?" up next, this headline says - "new administration arrives at capitol." but the headline could have been -- "world's most boring flash mob spells out the letter 'h.'" this next headline was - "obama greets attendees." but the headline could have been - "ventriloquist who forgot dummy still gives it his best. this next headline was - "biden prepares inauguration remarks." but the headline could have been -- "man remembers he has three new "below deck" episodes on his dvr." score! and finally, this headline says - "florida man returns to florida." that's all the time we have for "news and improved." what an amazing day. we have a new president, everybody. [ applause ]
11:44 pm
we had the first female, first black, first asian-american vice president [ applause ] i just thought the whole thing was so great, it was just, it was hard not to get emotional just watching that whole thing it was perfectly done. every performance was top-notch and everything crushed and then amanda gorman just comes out of nowhere i mean, i was like, what and just crushes, steals the show from what's already a a great show, i thought, and i just thought today was just, ah, it was a beautiful thing but another big deal today, today is actually questlove's 50th birthday! 5-0. ♪ da,da,da,da de,de ♪ >> i thought it was about me i thought it was about me.

11:46 pm
going to be? i was going to get this bird on my face, a word from the language in ghana, west africa, that speaks to appreciating your roots meaning "go back and get it." normally, when you see an emblem like the symbol, it's a a bird with his feet facing forward, and his head is facing its back and is holding a delicate egg, like in its mouth. so i'm going to get that on my cheek. so i didn't get that for you, but i realized the other, the other, the other symbol for sankofa is a stylized heart shape. can i do i designed this heart shaped lapel pin. it's encrusted with rubies and a yellow diamond take the top off

>> jimmy: my first guests tonight are two celebrated new yorkers! they are the oscar-winning director and the star of the very entertaining limited series "pretend it's a city," which is streaming now on netflix. here are martin scorsese and fran lebowitz! ah, it's so great to see you both here. thank you so much for doing this how are you on zoom? how is this possible >> are you talking to me >> yes >> um, i -- i am at a netflix office numerous people set this up. there are many machines here there are people, as far as i can tell, all around the country. >> jimmy: yes. >> making this possible. >> jimmy: they really are. >> and yet, it's not as good as being in person. >> yeah, that's right. >> with all this technology. >> jimmy: i'm so happy though that you're doing this, this is amazing. martin, this is your second documentary of sorts with fran, why did you decide to make this series
11:56 pm
and i was formatting and editing and kept shooting, and, as we developed the picture, i think it took about a year, year and a half in the cutting room, maybe more i just sensed, for me, there was a sense of freedom in style, making a film, structure of a film. eventually, we kind of came upon the idea that it would be great. it was like a commentary of our culture. almost like a, instead of reading a column in a magazine, fran passes by your house and just says things >> jimmy: yeah >> goes by your apartment, knocks on the door, and she says you know, these people down the hall, whatever. it's a necessary thing >> jimmy: yeah >> she doesn't -- she doesn't go in taxis, or -- she's always in the streets and always commenting on things, and some of it, you know, you may not agree with everything, but what i love is, is, the sense of it
11:57 pm
the common sense of it, more than common sens and, so for me, why not keep that commentary going? >> jimmy: yeah, i think people want to see this because i also want to just go up to fran and be like, "fran, what do you think of this? or what is that? just watching this, i just love you so much, you know that, but you almost get hit by a car maybe four times >> yeah. >> jimmy: in the first episode, because you're the only one paying attention >> yeah, that's right. that's why i almost get hit by a car instead of getting hit by a car. and if you wanted someone to knock on your door, me, jimmy. >> jimmy: yes. >> as your neighbor, that could have happened. >> jimmy: i did not take your apartment. really >> at my apartment, you could have come upstairs, knocked on the door >> jimmy: i didn't know it was you, i was outbidding. i was just talking -- i didn't know it was you. if i knew it was you, i would have - >> it didn't take much to outbid me, believe me.
11:58 pm
>> jimmy: i can just imagine what this was like there was a lot of -- there's this, some beautiful scenes shot around this like model of manhattan that i've never seen before, it's gorgeous. but it was filmed in queens at the queens museum. i've never even seen it before fran, i know you prefer to stay in manhattan how did you feel about filming in queens? >> well, it's, by the way, a a model of all of new york city, not just manhattan. so it is in queens i didn't even know about this thing. a friend of mine had gone recently, a few years ago. he told me about it, so we went and looked at it, and i thought, "this is a great thing for the city, it's a great thing. i cannot stress enough how people should go and see this. this is a wonderful, spectacular thing built by robert moses, who we all hate, because everything else he did was not miniature, but in miniature, the guy was perfect
11:59 pm
>> it's funny, because when she suggested it, i said, "where?" and i said, "no, we have all this stuff at the players club, you want a model of queens?" look, i was born in queens, flushing, so, i mean, okay but now, do you know what it takes to get there >> you know, marty acted like we were going to afghanistan "where is it how do we get there? i said, "marty, it's in queens." "it's far, right?" "it's pretty far." "how do we get there?" as if we were going in a a caravan of camels or we had to like row a little boat to get there. it is a little hard to get there, that is true, which is probably why fewer people see this model than should but it is worth the trip >> really is worth it, except for when you tripped over the bridge >> i knocked over the queensboro bridge, and the guy
12:00 am
in there was one of the most anxious people i've ever met in my life. because they never let anyone film in there. and marty came with four million cameras and it took long time to set the shot up and i asked the guy, because i had to wear these little booties, you know. and i said i would rather not have to wear them, i would prefer not to. i'll just wear my boots. i'll wear just my socks. so he kind of said yes and i put one sock on the thing. he said no, boots on but i put them on. and i kept saying, don't worry, i'm a very careful person, and then i knocked over the bridge >> the next thing i wanted to do was get the godzilla suit for her. >> jimmy: i want to show everyone a clip from.the series, here are martin scorsese and fran lebowitz in "pretend it's a city," take a look
12:01 am
>> how did you two meet? >> how did we meet do you want to tell her? >> no. >> people have often asked me how did i meet marty, and i don't know, so i'm assuming i met him at a party why do i think that? because i go to a lot of parties. >> that 50th birthday party? >> no, i knew you before that. i know him well, i go to a lot more parties than marty, which is why marty's made a lot of movies and i haven't written a a lot of books >> jimmy: that's perfect clip to show. i'm glad it's both your favorites. fran lebowitz and martin scorsese. everybody, their limited series "pretend it's a city" is streaming now on netflix more "tonight show" after the break! thanks for being here. >> thank you >> thank you ♪

♪ >> jimmy: my next guest is the former mayor of south bend, indiana, a new york times bestselling author, and the minefor united states secretary of transportation. it's my pleasure to welcome back to the show, mayor pete buttigieg hey, mayor pete, thank you so much for being on our show and coming back. you're in washington, d.c. right now, because you attended the -- president biden's inauguration today.enter almost how did it feel to be there? >> you know, it was amazing. it was moving. it was reassuring to be on those capitol steps where just two weeks earlier we'd seen those horrifying images of a a mob seeking to take over the capitol.
12:07 am
what we saw today was one of the most important and oldest rituals in american democracy, that transfer of power and i think for a lot of us, things that maybe we used to think of as boring or take for granted, you know, on a day like this, at a time like this, actually meant a lot, that there was that -- that continuity the president, i thought, gave a great speech there were these musical performances, garth brooks, j. lo, gaga and also this amazing poet, amanda gorman who really set the tone for the day so it was a great day. >> jimmy: she was amazing. i saw when you first, you were one of the first people to get there, and i, i know you probably can't, being where you are and your stature, but i couldn't help but get emotional watching everything, just everyone coming the way that the capitol was decorated. it made me so patriotic and so proud and just seeing the flag
12:08 am
flying, and i go yes, it made me so, it was like, i felt like i was, you know, in a george m cohan song or something. >> i didn't used to care about symbols so much. i cared about policy and getting things done and events didn't mean as much to me. but with all we've been through as a country, it matters, the continuity matters, the process that we go through, because it reminds us of the stability of the country, reminds us of what we're trying to protect when we protect american democracy >> jimmy: what do you think is next for president biden and how he's going to get the country to unite >> i think we saw in his speech that he wants to be a president for everyone, whether you voted for him or not but in the long run the best way to unite the country will be to deliver results. that will be his focus, the best way to bring people
12:09 am
together is to make sure that life in this country gets better, that our economy is strong, that there's safety, justice and equity there's a ton of work right away and it starts with defeating the pandemic it was great that even before the inauguration, as president-elect, he laid out the first steps of that plan now as president he's already working to deliver them and i'm excited to be part of the team to make that happen. >> jimmy: i don't know if i will be able to call you mayor pete anymore, because hopefully tomorrow you will be confirmed for the role of secretary of transportation this is a historic nomination. you'll be the first millennial cabinet member, and you'll also be the first openly gay person to serve in a cabinet position what does that all mean to you or have you even thought about it >> yeah, it means a lot, you know, i can remember be being in high school when president clinton nominated someone to be an ambassador who didn't get a a chance to have a vote in the senate because he was gay.
12:10 am
it sent a message, at that age i hadn't really thought that i would be serving in public service like i am now, but it sent a message, you know, not only that gay people might be denied a chance to serve but also denied a chance to belong so the fact that 20-some years later, tomorrow i'll go before a committee and hopefully receive a vote that will make it possible once the confirmation vote comes up to become a confirmed cabinet member i just hope that sends a a different, better, opposite message to some kid who's watching right now, that you have every right to belong, every right to serve, every right to be part of that country. >> jimmy: four years from now, what do you hope to have accomplished in the role >> you know, i'd love to be able to look back on a tenure as secretary and say that travel was and is and remains safe for workers and travelers, but above and beyond that, that america restored its leadership role when it comes to infrastructure
12:11 am
we've fallen behind. we've been expected to tolerate roads and bridges falling into disrepair. passenger rail being way behind what our fellow, our, you know, counter parts, citizens in other countries are able to enjoy. just a lot of things where we've settled for less, and i think now is a chance to do something about that i'd love to look back on these years and say this is when electric vehicles became much more widely adopted and the technology with automated vehicles if we can get the safety part right and a whole bunch of other things that are coming could allow us to say that america became better prepared for the climate crisis, more just and more economically sound because we did what we had to do when it came to infrastructure i know it's seen as kind of a nerdy topic sometimes. but i think it's one of the most interesting things before the administration right now, and i'm really excited to do my
