So Much News, So Little Time – Whitaker, California Fires & Trump’s WWI Rain Check | The Daily Show

Let’s just say it. This last week has not been
a good one for the president. Hell, the last two years
hasn’t been a good one for the president. Trump’s presidency’s a lot like
airplane Wi-Fi. There are moments when it seems
to be working, but most of the time
it’s complete trash. But this week has been
especially bad. It started on Wednesday, when
Trump replaced his house elf with the Republican Vin Diesel,
Matt Whitaker. Now, the move caused immediate
backlash from people who say Whitaker isn’t qualified
to be attorney general. He’s biased against
the Mueller investigation, and his appointment may even be
unconstitutional. And the controversy
has forced Trump into one of his most blatant
lies ever. With his pick for acting
attorney general under fire, President Trump
is defending his choice while also seeming
to distance himself from the new man
overseeing Mueller. I don’t know Matt Whitaker. Matt Whitaker worked
for Jeff Sessions and he was always extremely
highly thought of, and he still is, but I didn’t
know Matt Whitaker. TV REPORTER: But that’s not what
he told Fox News a month ago. TRUMP: (laughter) You know, sometimes Trump lies
so hard he gives my brain whiplash. Because most people lie
in a gradual curve. “I know him. Well, actually, I know him through a friend.
Well, I don’t know…” Trump is just like
the Tokyo Drift of lying. One minute he’s like,
“He’s my best friend.” Then he’s like,
“Never heard of him.” Then Sarah Huckabee’s at
the finish line like, “That was totally normal
driving. At no point did the president
change his direction.” I mean, at this point,
you just got to laugh when Trump contradicts himself. He’s like Newton’s third law: for every Trump, there is an
equal and opposite Trump. And by the way… (cheers and applause) And by the way… he also fits Newton’s first law: a Trump at rest
will remain at rest. That’s right, we’re doing
physics jokes today, people. Buckle up. Now, on a normal day, we’d have
all the time to talk about how Trump appointing
the volleyball from Cast Away as attorney general
might be part of an ongoing plan
to obstruct justice, but we just don’t have
the time right now, because there’s a giant
emergency in California, and the president
is making things worse. The U.S. president responded to
what’s happening in California over the weekend
in a series of tweets. Trump tweeted… (reading): -(booing)
-Okay, now, um… now, this might sound crazy, but I’m actually with Trump
on this one. The man knows fires, okay? He fired Gary Busey.
He fired Meat Loaf. I feel like he fires Omarosa
every six months. If anyone’s a fire expert,
it’s him. But yes, instead of lending a message of support
and comfort, Trump is blaming people while
the fire is still happening. And, on top of that,
he’s incorrect. One, most experts say
that the state’s major fires have nothing to do
with forest management, and two, this could have
all been avoided if Don Jr. hadn’t hunted down
Smokey the bear. So it’s been a rough few days
for Trump. But he had a chance
to put all of this behind him in France,
where the president traveled to mark the 100-year anniversary
of the end of World War I. All he had to do was show up
for a ceremony at an American cemetery
to honor the World War I troops. Super easy. But apparently not easy enough. President Trump
facing criticism right now over the decision
to skip an event honoring American troops killed
in France during World War I, calling off the trip because he could not chopper
to it in the rain. Other leaders made it. The White House is blaming rain
for not being able to make it. The optics were undeniably awful as other world leaders
were able to pay their respects. Okay, so,
the president’s helicopter can’t fly in the rain? What, does the helicopter need
to keep its hair dry, too? -Is that what it is?
-(laughter) (cheering and applause) And… and look, I understand weather. Even if the helicopter
couldn’t fly, surely the president could have
found another way to get there. I mean, all the other
world leaders did. Even Merkel.
Even Angela Merkel made it, and her side lost World War I. She had to be out
in the rain like, “We have come here
to honor those fallen soldiers who beat the Scheiße out
of mein country.” And it was especially bad because when Trump
didn’t show up, Merkel used the opportunity
to refight World War I. “I unconcede! I unconcede!
We unconcede!” Look what you did, Donald. Now, we don’t even have time to get into how much backlash
Trump got for taking a rain check
on honoring fallen soldiers, because we have to focus
on the tragic end of his bromance with Macron. They used to be friends, and things seem
to be falling apart. And we’ve put this together
in a special film we call Merci, Next. They certainly do appear to be
having a great relationship, Macron and President Trump. ♪ ♪ The two leaders showing
their affection and friendship beyond the usual handshakes. President Trump, who,
minutes after he landed here on French soil on Friday sent off that critical tweet
about the French president, really setting the stage
for conflict. At one moment, President Macron
even reached over and touched
President Trump’s leg. Important to note
that President Trump didn’t return the favor. And it did seem
that President Trump was in a sullen mood. Our time, she’s finished.


  1. We should always RESPECT our Veterans because they have given so much for us for our freedoms. They have seen their Brothers and Sisters die right in front of them or have suffered some sort of loss. Whether it be mentally or physically and they went through all this in many different weather conditions.

    This fat fucking P O S man should grow up and stop thinking everything is only about himself.

    Bombs explode all around our soldiers almost every day but yet they are still there doing their job and this Dumbass is scared of a little bit of rain hitting him.

  2. This report was disgustingly biased. All negative about our president. Did he not see the picture where Melania was actually holding his hand?!? That should have been the top story!


  4. I believe Trump worked on his Plan to Save the World for several decades — just as Ron Paul has tried to teach us for several decades, and just as I developed ideas of my own.
    I listened intently, during the Primaries, as Trump proposed nothing short of a Controlled Revaluation of the Entire World by discounting debt, in favor of higher interest rates. This was beyond the under-educated within his base, and so Far Out-of-the-Box for the Political and Economic Leadership, that they SHUT HIM UP!
    With Trump's Plan, the Bondholders faced a 60% Hit. For a time, I feared "THEY" would arrange his assassination. But Trump relented and changed his Agenda to: GIVE "THEM" WHAT THEY WANT. And the Evangelicals rejoiced that Trump was Chosen by God, not men.
    War Hawks get War. The International Corporations get a tax cut. The Workers get to Work — or become poor, and the Poor get to keep their hands out, until they are cut-off. Win-Win-Win-Win.
    THEN, for the BIGGEST WIN EVER ~~ a Jubilee is scheduled for 09/23/26, the autumn equinox of the Illuminati's 250th year, to Forgive ALL THAT DEBT, as the whole world cries out, "No more war. Forgive our debts. Save us. We will do Anything!"
    Hint: You are probably gonna want the Neo Eon Currency
    The Vernal Equinox of 2030, marks the beginning of the 3rd, 1000-year Day of Heaven, since Jesus taught us that ALL Men Are Brothers — Love One Another. But we have been told SOONER!
    Exercise FAITH to get in shape for the Awakening, because there will be no physical manifestation of the Ancient of Days setting final judgement — no Jesus or New Jerusalem coming down in the clouds. Only those with Spirit Capacity will "SEE" anything besides the War and the Jubilee. The rest will be "seen" as the UNSEEING, but they are still our brothers and sisters. And we are still tasked with the progressive perfection of Mankind, even if it takes us all 6,496 years remaining in Abraham's 10,000 year Covenant — even if it takes us longer.

  5. I truly think he does NOT know that he is lying. He doesn't remember what he said ten seconds before. The truth would't matter to him anyway. All he cares about is winning at any cost – certainly not the welfare of the public.

  6. Trump is the President of the United States. He needs to John Wayne the
    fuck up and haul his fat fuck twitter shitter ass to California and
    declare it a federal disaster area. People are literally burning the
    fuck alive in their cars trying to escape and he hops on twitter to
    fuckin blame people?!?!?!?!? He cant be impeached for gross dereliction
    of duty?! Sheer incompetence in a serious situation!? Then again this
    shit is how Republicans in power react to critical situations. They sit
    in a chair holding a book upside down on national TV for 7 minutes after
    they've been told that the United States is under attack or there's a
    big fuckin hurricane on its way to Louisiana……

  7. Trump failed to make that memorial honoring the military, but he would have made it if it was a campaign rally. He never skips those.
    Hypocrite-in-Chief talks about NFL players disrespecting the military….

  8. The Mueller investigation is a hoax, and it's wasting our tax 💰 Black unemployment is and has been at an all-time low, Trevor Noah is reading from his libtard script that pays him the big bucks. And nothing is funny about him 😘😘

  9. Could you imagine the shit storm of tweets if the president of France, in a very condescending and stereotypical French accent said "I like president Obama better anyways" 🤣🤣🤣

    Trump would probably declare war

  10. Macron, je le savais ! On ne rigole pas avec la France, tout le langage corporel en disait long, je me souviens surtout de la manière dont vous vous êtes serré la main, bien joué Emmanuel !🎉

  11. @3:49 the secret service agencies and the military made the decision on the safety of taking the helicopter. The propaganda media calls it "rain" all the while the military is calling it dangerous visibility. Ok media, question the decisions of our military, as you know the capabilities of the chopper better than USAF pilots. viewers need to open their eyes

    Marking the remembrance of fallen 🇺🇸American WWII troops that served and lost their lives in the cause of liberty were other countries’ world 🌎 leaders – just not our Commander & Chief Pres. Trump. WHY ? Why was Pres. Trump missing from this respectful tribute to heroic American troops held in France 🇫🇷 recently. The US President went to France for the ceremony. He was in the country the day the ceremony was held, but didn’t show up for the event. Do other world leaders believe our President mocked this historic occasion ?

  13. before election :
    Fake Media : "Trump is a pathological liar"
    Racist Trumptards : "NO, He is the only one who told the truth, everybody else are fake news"

    After Election :
    Fake Media : "Trump is a pathological liar"

    Racist Trumptards : "So what? Everyone lies"

  14. I am glad Trump didn't go honor the fallen WW 1 soldiers. I want him to be in as few pictures of such things as possible.

  15. I have respect for Matt Whitaker he helped run this website before he was working with Jeff sessions
    And he helped take down several Democrats and Republicans

  16. fuck all you commie traitors none of you remember when Obama and Hillary skipped the veterans day parade to commit treason to meet with Halliburton death to the left you are all TRAITORS

  17. you are all TRAITORS I hope there is a mass shooting in each and every one of your livingrooms fucking pedophile supporting, anti american commies.

  18. Wilson Fisk…. why try Vin Diesel? Writers come on… Marvel's been on top of the game for how long, and Netflix… come on chill

  19. Take a look at Trump and Melania coming off Air Force One… unhappy….so fake….holding hands It has to be difficult to be married to him but she loves money and this is what you get when you put money above all else.. How Sad!!

  21. The most scary part of all of this is.. people who support this man because of their narcissistic hatred for others. They are willing to destroy USA and the World to have there way.

  22. First of all the americans didn't beat the shit out of our troups in WW1, that is simply a lie. And I think the british and french troups as well as the german ones deserve a lot more respect for what soldiers on each side have done in WW1 than the US troups, whose tactic just was to throw enough people against our lines and let them die due to a lack of competent strategists.

  23. Don't let this distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, Bubba "Spare Tire" Dixon.

  24. Khashoggi – to the Senate and the House

    It is time for America to show its true colors, the whole world is watching. Are we a country of true Democracy, a government of the People, for the People, and by the People? Or, are we a country of Capitalism where money takes place over human rights, justice, morals, common decency and human lives?

    There was a time when we set the standard for decency for others to follow. Now the world is watching to see if we have any decency at all. We have the evidence, the facts, the video, forensics, and even the admission of guilt. We know that the only one who could have the power to execute this is the Prince of Saudi Arabia. America is tired of hearing the lies, one after another.

    If the President cannot see this due to friendship or monetary gains? Then it is up to the American people’s Congress to come forward and honorably represent our country.

    We cannot turn a blind eye to this horrendous injustice and still call ourselves Americans. The Congress must act now, if the President is not willing to do so. I ask you, have we become such an ungodly country that we will allow our government to accept the Prince of Darkness’s Blood money over the righteous of the Lord’s justice for humanity?
    Gregory St. James Mundy

  25. If you watch CNN try thinking, everything they say is a lie for 10 minutes! Then you will know the truth. Whenever they can take a dig at the president, they smile, like the cat that ate the canary.

  26. Those of you who watch this negative entertainment pays these jerks a whole lot of money while you are not going anywhere. What waste.
    Humans are used to doing one thing from their easy chairs. Too bad more don't thing out-of-the box and what good could come for Americans
    should Trump move us forward. Turning things around won't happen in four years what took decades to create the downward turn we were all
    moving in. How soon we all forget. Yet when you get a leader who has the 'balls' to do things in new ways for you, you criticize the unknown.
    The man has too many enemies and not enough backup from fools like you supporting his efforts with more negative comments.
    And, as these bastards that are selling you a bag of goods you eat it up with applause. But in the long run it is you who will pay the losses
    should these idiots get their way. Learn how to think for yourselves not influenced by those feeding on your skepticism, ignorance or mere
    lack of knowledge. This stupid guy is getting paid for negative posting and laughs that are programing the public to remain weak and poor.
    He's making money here you are not.

  27. trump and his racist adminstration should ALL be in PRISON for trying to destroy our country, environment, people & allies! Oh and giving fucking tax breaks to the fucking RICH!!

  28. @The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

    please do a video

    about us yellow vest in France right now protesting against neoliberal politics, auritarianism, inequality, corruption and Macron destroying our social rights, our education, our healthcare,, our railroads, our democracy and so on

    It's a nation wide protest all over france since 3 weeks
    one of the biggest protest in paris since at least one or two decade if not more
    and it seems like it's spreading towards belgium.

    Liberté égalité fraternité !

    Power to the people

  29. Angela Merkel: "We have come here to honor those fallen soldiers who beat the scheiße (shit) out of my country."

  30. hey look at what i found…

    "so u think a cop should just stop what they're doing as soon as a criminal tells me that he didnt do it?"

  31. Parents are burying their children prematurely and children are burying their parents prematurely from cancer. Hello America!

    We have the power to make the CHANGE. Those who have protested around the U.S. and the world need to vote this president behind him rolling back the protection we had to protect our CLIMATE.

    Electoral should be abolished, it's flawed.
    Have this clown turn over his taxes.
    No more Trump next year people. Have him show his taxes and get out of office bye Felicia!!! The future can't afford it.
    Climate change? Donald obviously knows nothing about it and we can't afford to have him roll back policies that would help us with our deteriorating climate.
    Trump's for the rich. LISTEN WELL PEOPLE. He doesn't doesnt care for the poor and middle class of this country. Help Trump find a new address and vote for whoever wins the primary other than Trump. They are changing the laws for the rich to take advantage of the poor in the workplace and to change the tax laws to to raise taxes for the poor and middle class besides the RICH. EXAMPLE: As in the gig economy, As in Uber. We aren't able to sue the rich companies like Uber. Uber's new disclosures policies PROHIBIT drivers from suing Uber for Missclassifying drivers, failure to pay overtime for YEARS and not giving thier drivers tips by advertising "tips are included". The rich and wealthy are being allowed to break the Labor Laws that have been in place for years! Whoever heard of this? They are trying to get rid of the construction and old labor LAWS!!
    Liar's!! Stop opiate consumption because it only profits the FDA, BIG PHARMA and hospitals…again the rich are taking advantage of the poor and middle class. Its the leading cause of death today and you young people are falling for it and allowing them to fry your brains with drugs. That's how they control the General population today. It is profiting the wealthy and causing a drastic homeless Holocaust just to profit the rich. Look at the state of this country!!! They just caught a ship with drugs on it, Trump was saying Mexicans are bring drugs from Mexico, can an attorney check into weather or not JP Morgan who was found to be affiliated with this ship full of drugs. It was 1 ton of cocaine! Please! have an attorneys get a hold of this information to see if they're going to prosecute whoever was involved in bringing these drugs into this country on this ship so we can prove that we are locking up the poor who bring some drugs to this country yet they don't prosecute the wealthy who bring tons of drugs into this country.
    The WEALTHY are not paying their fair share of taxes and our war torn streets scream loud and clear that rich aren't paying enough taxes. Donald is rich and he is for the RICH you think he is for the poor or middle class?
    Get out and vote: Democrates, otherwise WE WILL GET STUCK WITH TRUMP AGAIN IF WE ALL DONT VOTE FOR THE winning PRIMARY candidate. (WE CANT AFFORD TO VOTE FOR AND independent because it will take votes away from the Democratic party and Trump's SCUNK again. WE WILL GET STUCK WITH THIS JOKER AGAIN.
    Stop fracking and geoengineering clouds now. Stop these refineries, Trump is for the Rich coal miners that ruin our Earth.The United States is burning up and you say there is no evidence of what Greta is talking about. Changing a light bulb!? Really! get out if your own way of your own ignorance and research just on the weekend you'd be floored as to what's really going on with these fake smog in the air. Fake clouds, fake mist in these sprinkle that they are sprinkling us with today.Those fake rains are toxic for us. Wear hoodies and use umbrellas no matter how light the rain might be, these acid rain clouds are toxic for us and I believe are the cause of cancer and other illnesses today.
    Look up the YouTube video of a scientist who has been recording the North Pole ice caps melting for 35 years from a glacier down to an ice cube and down to nothing. The United States of America and the world is flooding. YouTube it. People from around the U.S. and the world are recording it and posting it.
    Look up the lawsuits around the world that common folks are starting to sue th companies that PROFIT from creating these clouds. YouTube: " We are suing these [email protected]" it is not misspelled. You'll see that common folk are suing, thank God people are fighting back. YouTube video from "Anonymous" on these fake clouds. They say they are controlling the weather, really! Well we can PROVE we we're fine before geoengineered clouds, stop your lies. Look at these fires alone, they are creating mass destruction due to their GREED.
    I know a lot because I am a cancer survivor. I beat cancer naturally (including 3 blood transfusion). I studied cancer for 5 years and eventually beat it. Thank God.
    I know what I know by default because I wanted to live and not do Chemotherapy and managed to survive.
    I know that they have the cure for most cancers in 45 days but the FDA won't approve it because they SAY THEY WANT MORE TRIALS, MEANWHILE people are dying like flies from cancer. Do you know what a 45 day cure would have done for me? I wouldn't have lost almost 12 years of my life trying to cure myself and recoup from being sick for 7 years with cancer. I wouldn't have lost my house and my successful trucking business. Look up the "Vice" show " the new cancer cure" something a long that title. They show a man who has stage 4 brain Cancer- and get rid of it within 45 days. Brain Cancer- is one of the hardest Cancers because the Brain is on a different lymphatic system than the rest of our body. John McCain died of brain Cancer- served our country and not even he was privy to the stem cell cure, not even on a trail basis. Wouldn't you be mad if you or a loved one had cancer and was dying and you KNEW there was an easier way or a less TOXIC way to curing cancer than going the chemotherapy route which is a horrendous route to take. Yet the FDA APPROVES TOXIC CHEMICALS IN OUR FOOD AND YET ALL WE TALK ABOUT ON THE NEWS IS FAKE NEWS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP…SHAME ON ALL YOU AMERICANS WHO ARE SLEEPING. WATCHING A STRAIGHT UP PUPPET SHOW AND WE ARE ALL TOO OLD FOR IT, YET THAT'S WHAT YOU ALL ARE DOING. MEANWHILE WE ARE LIGHTING UP LIKE A MATCH!! and all everyone want to do is be on social or watch fake news.
    There's a lot of ways to make a difference rather than posting here on things you know nothing about. I'm an older woman and I fight for my children, my grandchildren and the young people who are dying with cancer in unprecedented numbers. I fight the Medical system that pumping opiates to the AMERICAN public for injuries, depression, someone going through a divorce or something (when years ago the doctors prescribed counselors and Psychotherapy of some kind and not opiates) for attention span deficit disorder they prescribe Ritalin (look up the side affects of that on a child). My daughter when she was 10 years old was recommended that by the psychologist and her teacher in her elementary school and I refused. I was 28 years old at the time and I laughed and said "absolutely not"!!! I told them " you aren't getting my daughter on drugs cuz you have too many kids. They said my daughter isn't focused and she gets off her seat and visits her classmates. I told them my daughter is a social butterfly and I will talk to her about that but you aren't drugging up my daughter and turning her into a zombie cuz you can't handle your class. Today my daughter owns a successful Beauty salon in Los Angeles and If I would have listen to them my daughter would be strung out on drugs or Dead by an overdose. She is 40 years old now.
    I'm not asleep, never have been since I was a child. God has blessed me with knowledge and foresight on issues that affect us today. It is a gift and a blessing.
    Wake up, before you are knee deep in the murky Waters or your house is on fire literally. Come on the Amazon Forrest is on fire and we can't afford for that to happen.
    The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, we have got to try and stop the crooks from killing us and doing us in just for PROFIT. They are a bunch of old Crocks and on their way out. Watch the movie "All the money in the world" you'll understand the mindset of the rich sick old Crocks that would slice their own mother's throat for profit. Most of us all will live long enough to witness our own demise because you'd rather be entertained by nonsense and fake news. Which is costing us millions of our tax dollars.
    PLEASE vote for the winner in primary besides Trump otherwise we will get stuck with him again. He is for ONLY THE RICH TO PROFIT MORE. WAKE UP AMERICA your house is on fire.
    Test the soot on our cars and get the Lawsuit AGAINST the AMERICAN Vietnam war vets against the Federal Government and compare what the sprayed on them to the soot on our cars, in our blood stream and sue them to stop this maddness crookery. STOP being entertained and do something!!!
