Trevor Responds to the Las Vegas Shooting & Trump Tweets the Weekend Away: The Daily Show

I’m sure,
just like many of you, I woke up this morning
to the devastating news coming out of Las Vegas. Another mass shooting. This time somehow even deadlier than all the other
mass shootings. And they say that this was
the worst in American history. But every shooting is the worst for someone. And you know what-what
blew my mind this morning is when I realized that I have-I have just, like… I’ve lived in the U.S.
and New York for two years now, all right? And in that time there have been
20 mass shootings. 20 mass shootings in the U.S. What’s been particularly
heartbreaking is– other than the lives lost– is how I feel like people are becoming more accustomed
to this type of news, every single time. I almost know how
it’s going to play out. We’re shocked.
We’re sad. Thoughts and prayers.
And then, almost on cue, people are gonna come out
saying, “Whatever you do, “when speaking
about the shootings, don’t talk about guns.” Talking about gun control
and whether we new… need more restrictive laws–
I just don’t think that that’s an appropriate time
for this to be happening. There’s a time and place
for a political debate, uh, but now is the time
to unite as a country. This is not the time to be talking about guns. Sometimes I wish I had
used this logic as a kid when I’ve done something wrong.
You know? My mom wanted to ground me.
I should have just said, “Is this the time,
Mom, that we… “politicize what’s happening
right now? “This is not the time to talk
about my lack of discipline. “This is a time for us
to unite as a family, “to focus on the fact that
I’m stuck in the kitchen window “trying to sneak back in.
Come on, Mom. This is not the time.” When… like, when is the time? And also, if you say after a
mass shooting is never the time, then you’ll never have
the conversation in America, because there’s a mass shooting
almost every single day. So when is the time?
Think about it. With everything else–
when a plane crashes, we talk about
plane safety immediately. When a bridge collapses, we talk about
infrastructure immediately. When a lion attacks people,
we talk about why there are so many lions
roaming around. Is that just me? Africa? All right, cool.
Skip-skip that one. Skip that one. But, like, I…
Like, I don’t know how to… We seem to do everything
to avoid talking about guns. I’ve never been to a country where people are as afraid
to speak about guns. Every time there’s a shooting. You got to look
at something else. Is it Muslims? Is it their
religion, is that what it is? Is it blacks? It’s the blacks.
It’s the black on black crime. Is it mentally ill people?
Is it white nationalists? Every time,
it’s a different question. And now… and now, after
this incident in Las Vegas, we’re asking a new question. Is it hotels? Certainly hotel security will be
revisited across the globe, uh, after this event. There’s no check of your bags. Uh, I’m not sure how one
gets that many firearms up into their room, but that’s
gonna be, now, an issue. Who would have thought
that someone would be firing from the Mandalay Bay hotel? So now we have to
rethink security. So… so, just to keep track
of the argument– mass shooting, mass shooting,
mass shooting, mass shooting, mass shooting, mass shooting…
we have to take care of this hotel check-in issue. Oh, and-and… and by the way, just to give you an idea
of how far away America is from actual gun control– this week Congress
is going to vote on deregulating gun silencers.
Yeah. Because, I guess,
Congress is thinking, “Gun violence is out of control.
How can we make it quieter? Yeah, how can we do that?” So… so, the people
of Las Vegas, I can’t give you
thoughts and prayers. I can only say that I’m sorry. I’m sorry that we live in
a world where there are people who will put a gun… before your lives. And this story will develop over
time, and we’ll keep on it. But for now, let’s go
into the news of the weekend. Let’s start with Secretary
of State Rex Tillerson. A man whose name
sounds less, uh, like a man and more like
a rich old lady’s Pomeranian. Earlier this week… earlier
this week… the secretary of state revealed that he has a direct line of
communication with North Korea. Which is a big deal,
considering North Korea is threatening to launch
nuclear weapons at the U.S. Unfortunately for
the rest of us, President Trump has a direct line of
communication with Twitter. U.S. president, Donald Trump,
appears to be undermining his top diplomat on North Korea. REPORTER: “I told Rex Tillerson
he’s wasting his time trying to negotiate
with Little Rocket Man.” “Save your energy, Rex,
we’ll do what has to be done!” “Save your energy, Rex”? Poor Rex Tillerson. He’s trying
to negotiate a way out of nuclear war, and his boss
is calling him out on social media for it. Like, I wonder if Tillerson’s
ever like, “Sir, do you know “that your phone can make calls?
Do you know that? Like, why would you tweet me?” Trump is like, “Because, Rex,
I don’t follow you, so I can’t DM, okay?” (applause) And, now… I get… I get what Trump
is trying to do though. He’s thinking that,
by acting crazy, he’ll strengthen Rex’s hand
with the negotiations, you know? It’s the old good cop/bad
president routine. I understand it. The problem is, he’s actually a bad president. It’s not just a routine. “Being nice to Rocket Man
hasn’t worked in 25 years. “Why would it work now? “Clinton failed, Bush failed,
and Obama failed. I won’t fail.” You know, I would be
a lot more confident that Trump wouldn’t fail
if he knew that North Korea has had three leaders
in the last 25 years. Yeah. Clinton and Bush were
dealing with different Kims– Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, and now Kim Jong-un. But I guess, to Trump,
all rocket men look the same. Uh, or, maybe, maybe
he just can’t tell Kims apart. Maybe that’s his thing.
He’s gonna be, uh, walking in the street, bumping into
Lil’ Kim and looking at her, like, “You son of a bitch.” Oh, and-and
Trump’s-Trump’s crazy wasn’t just directed at, uh,
the Korea of the north. Remember how last week
everyone was like, “Hey, Mr. President,
stop tweeting about the NFL and focus on Puerto Rico”?
Remember that? Well, uh, be careful
what you wish for. REPORTER:
The mayor of San Juan slamming President Trump’s response
to the disaster there. So I am done being polite. I am done being
politically correct. I am mad as hell. We are dying, and you are killing us
with the inefficiency. REPORTER 2:
President Trump responded, “Such poor leadership ability
by the mayor of San Juan “and others in Puerto Rico, “who are not able to get
their workers to help. “They want everything
to be done for them when it should be
a community effort.” Wow. Really? The hurricane-ravaged people
of Puerto Rico are lazy? This coming from a man who spent
71 days of his presidency at a golf course. Really? A sport where you’re so lazy,
you need an assistant. They’re the lazy ones? Because, you see, the real
victims of this hurricane are not who you think of
as the victims of the hurricane. The real victim is Donald Trump. REPORTER:
“The mayor of San Juan, “who was very complimentary
only a few days ago, “has now been told
by the Democrats that you must be nasty
to Trump.” How are you a billionaire and the president
of the United States and still the most insecure
human being on Earth? Like, how? Like, a mayor
of a hurricane-ravaged city is begging for food, and Trump reacts like
she slammed him on a diss track. And just to keep track,
Trump has now had beef with the mayor
of a destroyed city, grieving Gold Star parents, POWs, and the Pope. Right. And the Pope deserved it. He said some (bleep).
But, I mean, everyone else, everyone else, really? And, obviously, there was a big
backlash to Trump’s response. People were furious.
Lin-Manuel Miranda even tweeted that Trump
is going straight to hell on the fastest golf cart
he ever took. And I don’t know if you know… (cheering and applause) I don’t know if you know– Lin-Manuel is, like,
the nicest person you will ever meet in your life. And you can even see
that he’s nice, because even when sending Trump
to hell, he let him take his preferred
mode of transportation. Look at that. That’s a nice guy. And, clearly, Donald Trump
is a Hamilton fan, because, on Sunday,
the president finally stepped up and did the right thing. President Trump dedicates
Presidents Cup golf trophy to the people of Puerto Rico. On behalf of all of the people
of Texas and all of the people of– if you look today
and you see what’s happening, how horrible it is, but we have
it under really great control– Puerto Rico,
and the people of Florida, who have really suffered over
this last short period of time with the hurricanes,
I want to just remember them. And we’re going to dedicate
this trophy to all of those people
that went through so much. That’s right, folks. Don’t say Donald Trump hasn’t
done anything for Puerto Rico. The dude dedicated
a whole golf trophy to them. And you know in Trump’s mind,
that made sense, right? He was like, “This weekend,
both the golfers and Puerto Rico “had to deal with water hazards. -It makes sense. It makes
sense.” (laughter, groaning) Like, I could… I genuinely cannot believe that this guy dedicated
a golf trophy. Like, on the list of things
Puerto Ricans needed, a golf trophy is somewhere in
between a VHS copy of Spider-Man and another hurricane. Who are you? (applause and cheering) Because… because Puerto Rico
doesn’t need a golf trophy. All right,
they need baseball trophies. -They don’t play golf.
-(laughter) No, but seriously, though,
they need help. They need our help, as well. Don’t be like Trump. Let’s give
to Puerto Ricans something that they can actually use. Click the link and help out. Give whatever you can,
even if it’s one dollar. You know, if anything, this may
be the only silver lining of Trump’s Twitter wars, is how much people have been
getting involved. He gets people so fired up that
they donate just to spite him. (laughter) Yeah, I’m thinking now,
we just need to get polar bears to tweet Trump, and maybe
we can solve global warming.

  1. They said that shooter had 42 guns, no one need 42 guns that is crazy. 2 to 3 guns should be the limit. They need to take sniper rifles off the market. They also need to force people who own sniper rifle to turn them in.

  2. I live in the deep south and my family is full of gun nuts. I've enjoyed guns pleanty. Hunting, target shooting, and just shooting into nothingness all in good fun. I can also say I wouldn't miss them at all if they were banned. My family looks at me like the enemy when I say assault rifles aren't necessary and are detrimental to our country. The problem is how ignorant and unwilling to admit wrongness southerners are. You won't meet more prideful people in the world than you will in the deep south. This pride allows southerners to look at the news when a someone young or old takes an assault rifle and mows down multiple people to say "how awful, however this is no excuse to take muh gunz." I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say something along the lines of "dems just want to take our guns so we are defenseless when they take the world over" it's this kind of conspiracy thinking that is poisoning the south. They think that without an AR they and their family will be shot and killed by the government. I wish they would take a moment to consider how many people it would take to suppress and control a population as big as ours and that the people who would be doing the overthrowing are OUR OWN PEOPLE. How unlikely is it that our government has enough people signed up to upon "disarming" the public to systematically and militarily oppress said public. This thinking is asinine but commonplace in the south. A lot of it is partisanship as well. Guns are republican so southern repubs will amass collections simply because it's the repub thing to do.

  3. Man u sure kept ur cool bro u the champ its mest up but thats the world we live in but i trust in god first b4 i trust a gun

  4. hey dumb fuck, another one just happened. in the strictest gun control state in the US. lets talk about it. criminals dont obey laws. ur just making it easier on criminals to commit such crimes by unarming normal law obiding citizens with ur stupid gun control.

  5. every day you dont give a fuck, is the day thay win!!! give a fuck…. Please Give a fuck I beg you…. Start your show everyday WITH THE! ITHER THAY IN POWER GIVE A FUCK OR THAY DONT! THEN YOU, GET THE SENETORES TO AWNSER TO THE ones who have lost the most! AND then we see who gives a fuck!

  6. Why can't there be regulations on guns in this country, " 2 years and there's been 20 mass shooting" this is sad. If there was a type of food or fruit that was taking lives wouldn't there be regulation to stop it or cut it? Oooh America, and upon all this Africa is a"… Shito Hole…" funny!!

  7. Flawed logic from an idiot. When a plane crashes it can be either pilot error or a defect or maintaince, focus on the person or the plane. When a bridge collapses, focus on the bridge. When there is a mass shooting, focus on the person, not the gun.

  8. Trevor you are so right, did you know that when 1 person died from salad they shut down all the salad processing, but
    When tons of kids are dying from shootings the government does nothing about it 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

  9. It not the guns it the ppl like guns don’t kill ppl the ppl kill them a gun can’t kill them the ppl piling the trigger

  10. Thanks for this trophy to hold all of our non existing food and clean water…I'm imagining that's what they thought while they tried to pretend it was nice

  11. It's not America is racist who fights for guns and don't care about the lives. I believe in a right to have a firearm. But there should be a magazine requirement. To protect your home you don't need a thousand rounds. Unless you are into some higher level crap.

  12. TDS: Please turn up show recording volume… when the show ends abruptly the insanely loud theme song plays. Like horrible TV stations playing a movie quiet and then blare the commercials. Trevah, keep rockin it baby.

  13. Don’t call it mass shooting…call it a terrorist attack he chooses a different weapon to kill human being.

  14. I was diagnosed with Anxiety and Depression last week. Three days later I discovered the Daily Show on YouTube and ever since then I've been doing better. Shout-out to Trevor Noah and everyone on the Daily Show. You guys are nothing short of Heros❤❤💯
    Thank You 💜

  15. If you can't handle normal purchase of guns how do you expect to erradicate gun trafficking or something eelse. Change the fucking laws or no one should have a gun. Why is it so normal for you to own guns and brag about it, be proud.

  16. I guess we should be thankful that the government of America at least takes nuclear weapons more seriously than they do guns coz if they treated the two the same, world war three wud have started already.

  17. Trump has done more for this country in the time he has been in office than Obama ever did. Obama actually damaged this county and Hillary would have done even more damage. So Trump is doing a fine job. Liberals hate Trump because he puts this country first. All liberals do is lie, deceive and promote violence. Think of Black Lives Matter and there you are.


  19. The Gilroy shooting just this week is almost already forgotten. Everything in this video is completely true. But nothing is changing.

  20. We dont live in a WORLD that puts guns ahead of people… we live in a COUNTRY that puts guns ahead of people, any other country wouldve fixed this issue years ago

  21. I watch this video after Trevor said his statement about El Paso and Dayton and it still blows me away how little to nothing we did ever since the tragedy in Vegas that happened two years ago.

  22. How to know three North Korean Presidents are different?!
    Well, look at their haircut. See…how easy it is😆

  23. It's sad that I only realized that this video is two years old, just after the Trump news segment started. I remembered Trump and his Rocket Man comments, but I can't tell mass shootings apart. Wow.

  24. What I like about Trevor Noah's stuff, is that, the show is supposed to be a comedy
    But comedy is just the way he talks
    Its just a side dish
    He focuses his words and stuff people could do with

  25. remove the damn president America is an Democracy!!! convince your citizens !!!! world peace everybody WE DON'T NEED NO NUCLEAR WAR #GIVEPEACEACHANCE

  26. this type of presentation is always rigged against the POTUS! What about the other sitting presidents when mass shootings occurred? You as a South African have no clue sorry! Be fair man!

  27. I saw shooting in the title and thought this was about the recent shootings, but realized it was from a year ago. Now I'm sad.

  28. Its like that country does not want to curb these shootings and they always shift away from proper gun control discussions to let it go on for some reason and that pisses me off. Sit down and talk about this issue and how to stop it forever jeez sometimes these politicians act like children.
