Trump: It’s My Right ‘To Do National Emergency’

Trump: It’s My Right ‘To Do National Emergency’


WELCOME TO THE LATE SHOW,
I AM YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. WE ARE ON, WHAT DAY, WHAT DAY IS
THIS? WHAT DAY IS THE SHUTDOWN IS IT? 19? IT’S 19– DAY 19 OF THE
GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN WHICH MEANS IT IS NOW OFFICIALLY LASTED
LONGER THAN MY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION. I GOT WINDED AND GAVE UP HALFWAY
THROUGH THE PLANET FITNESS APPLICATION. LAST NIGHT DONALD TRUMP JUMPED
THE BORDER OF AMERICA’S PRIME TIME LINE-UP TO MAKE HIS
DEMANDS.>>AND I WILL SAY HE SEEMED LESS
THAN SPIRITED THAN USUAL.>>MY FELLOW AMERICANS, TONIGHT
I AM SPEAKING TO YOU BECAUSE THERE IS A GROWING HUMANITARIAN
AND SECURITY CRISIS AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER. (LAUGHTER).>>Stephen: SORRY, THE
NATIONAL CRISIS PUT ME TO SLEEP, I DON’T– WHY WAS HE SO CALM IF
THERE IS A CRISIS. JIM, CAN WE ZOOM IN ON HIM. YEAH, TRANQ DART RIGHT IN THE
NECK. (LAUGHTER)
AFTER DISCUSSING VARIOUS BORDER SECURITY ISSUES TRUMP FINALLY
LANDED ON THE REASON HE SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT IN THE FIRST
PLACE, THE WALL, WHICH IT TURNS OUT WASN’T REALLY EVEN HIS IDEA.>>FINALLY, AS PART OF AN
OVERALL APPROACH TO BORDER SECURITY LAW ENFORCEMENT
PROFESSIONALSALS HAVE REQUESTED BILLION DOLLARS FOR A PHYSICAL
BARRIER.>>OH LAW ENFORCEMENT REQUESTED
IT, OH, A WALL? I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THE
THING I HAVE BEEN CHANTING FOR THREE YEARS. AM I PRONOUNCING THAT CORRECTLY
WAAALL? HE WASN’T DONE SAYING HIS IDEAS
WEREN’T HIS IDEAS.>>AT THE REQUEST OF DEMOCRATS
IT WILL BE A STEEL BARRIER RATHER THAN A CONCRETE WALL.>>Stephen: MR. PRESIDENT,
STEEL SLATS ARE NOT THE METAL BARS WE WANT YOU BEHIND. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
IS THERE A STORM COMING? TRUMP HAS GOT A LOT OF HEAT
BECAUSE HE SAID MEXICO WHAT PAY FOR THE WALL AND, BUT LAST NIGHT
HE FOUND ANOTHER WAY TO PAY FOR IT.>>THE BORDER WALL WOULD VERY
QUICKLY PAY FOR ITSELF. THE COST OF THE ILLEGAL DRUGS
EXCEEDS $500 BILLION A YEAR. VASTLY MORE THAN THE $5.7
BILLION MORE THAN WE HAVE REQUESTED FROM CONGRESS.>>Stephen: I’M PRETTY SURE HE
JUST SUKED SELLING DRUGS TO PAY FOR THE WALL. SO LAW ENFORCEMENT, KEEP AN EYE
OUT FOR THIS GUY. (LAUGHTER)
(APPLAUSE).>>Jon: GIVE ME THE LOOP.>>Stephen: I AM THE ONE WHO
KNOCKS, UNLESS I’M BACKSTAGE AT THE MISS UNIVERSAL PAJ ENT, THEN
I JUST WALK IN UNEXPECTEDLY. BUT– HE DID THAT. BUT THEN, THEN HE SNUCK THIS IN.>>THE WALL WILL ALSO BE PAID
FOR INDIRECTLY BY THE GREAT NEW TRADE DEAL WE HAVE MADE WITH
MEXICO.>>Stephen: OH YEAH,
TRADITIONALLY TRADE DEALS PAY FOR OUR INFRASTRUCTURE. NIXON OPENED UP THE TRADE WITH
CHINA AND IN RETURN MAO ZEDONG FIXED A POTHOLE. SO IN THE END TRUMP BIG
NETWORK-INTUPTING OVAL OFFICE LIARSIDE CHAT WAS HIS OLD
IMMIGRATION TALKING POINTS WITH NOTHING NEW. SPEAKING OF NOTHING NEW, THE
DEMOCRATIC RESPONSE. FOLLOWING THIS HISTORIC MID
TERMS DEMOCRATS SENT OUT SOME EXCITING, FRESH YOUNG FACES,
CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATIC LEADERS AND DIRECT TO DVDADDAMS FAMILY
CHUCK SCHUMER AND NANCY PELOSI, AFTER TRUMP’S LOWER ENERGY
PERFORMANCE, THIS WAS THEIR CHANCE TO FIRE UP THE
OPPOSITION, SO JUICE IT!>>GOOD EVENING. I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO
SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TONIGHT.>>Stephen: LOOKS LIKE AMERICA
IS ABOUT TO GET THE SEX TALK. WE GET T WE’RE 143 WE
HAVE– THEY HAD TWO STRONG MESSAGES, OKAY. THEY’RE NOT PAYING FOR THE WALL,
ALSO WE’RE NOT PAYING FOR MORE THAN ONE PODIUM. SO THE NIGHT WAS A UNIVERSALLAL
SNOOZE FEST BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADDRESS DID GET REEF
REVIEWS FROM– RAVE REVAWS FROM ONE GROUP, HIS HANLTD HANDLERS,
APPARENTLY IN THE WHITE HOUSE THEY WERE THRILLED THAT HE WAS
CALM AND CONTROLLED IN THE DELIVERY WITHOUT ANY PROMPTER
STUMBLES. ALL IT TAKES TO BE PRESIDENTIAL
IS ACCURATELY READ A PROMPTER? BIG DEAL. DO I THAT FIVE NORTS A WOOK. WHY AREN’T I PREGADENT. ONE POSSIBLE, ONE POSSIBLE
REASON TREMP SEEMED LIKE HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE THERE IS
BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE THERE. REPORTS SAY HE WAS NOT INCLINED
TO GIVE THE SPEECH, WAS TACKED INTO IT BY ADVISORS SAYING IT’S
NOT GOING TO CHANGE A DAMN THING BUT I’M STILL DOING IT. WHICH WOULD ALSO BE A VERY
HONEST PITCH FOR THE WALL. BUT IF TRURP, IF TRUMP– YEAH,
YEAH, SURE. BUT IF TRUMP SEEMED A LITTLE TOO
ON SCRIPT LAST NIGHT, DON’T YOU WORRY BECAUSE TODAY HE UNLEASHED
THE FULL DIRECTOR’S CUT AT AN IMPROMPTU YELL AT THE PRESS
EVENT. AND HE MADE IT CLEAR HOW HE FELT
ABOUT THIS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.>>THIS IS NOT A FIGHT I WANTED. I DIDN’T WANT THIS FIGHT.>>Stephen: YOU DIDN’T WANT
THIS? WHO IS THIS GUY?>>I AM PROUD TO SHUT DOWN THE
GOVERNMENT FOR BORDER SECURITY.>>I WILL BE THE ONE TO SHUT IT
DOWN. I’M NOT GOING TO BLAME YOU FOR
IT. I WILL TAKE THE MANTEL. I WILL BE THE ONE TO SHUT IT
DOWN.>>Stephen: MR. PRESIDENT,
THAT GUY IS MAKING YOU LOOK TERRIBLE. I DOP KNOW WHO SHALL– YOU GOT
TO GET HIM OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE RIGHT AWAY. TRUMP CONTINUED TO ARGUE HIS
PRO-WALL STANCE.>>THEY SAY IT IS A MEDIEVAL
SOLUTION, A WALL, IT’S TRUE T IS MEDIEVAL BECAUSE IT WORKED THEN
AND IT WORKS EVEN BETTER NOW.>>Stephen: YOU REALLY CANNOT
GO WRONG WITH MEDIEVAL TECHNOLOGY.>>THE WALLS ARE MADE OF STEEL
SLATS WHICH TOP ALCHEMISTS HAVE ASSURED ME REQUEST CAN BE TURNED
THAT PURE GOLD, PAYS FOR ITSELF. NOW IF YOU WILL EXCUSE ME, I
HAVE A LEECHES APPOINTMENT. AND EVEN THOUGH THE PRESIDENT
DIDN’T DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY LAST NIGHT, HE IS
KEEPING IT ON THE TABLE.>>I HAVE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO
DO NATIONAL EMERGENCY IF I WANT.>>Stephen: NOT ONLY CAN I DO
NATIONAL EMERGENCY, MANY SAY I AM NATIONAL EMERGENCY. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
AND HE GAVE A NEW REASON WHY AMERICA NEEDS THE WALL, BECAUSE
IMMIGRANTS HAVE DEADLY SUPERCARS.>>THE FACT IS THAT WE DON’T
HAVE BARRIERS, WALLS, CALL THEM WHAT YOU WANT, BUT WE DON’T HAVE
VERY STRONG BARRIERS WHERE PEOPLE CANNOT, ANY LONGER, DRIVE
RIGHT ACROSS IT. UNBELIEVABLE VEHICLES, THEY MAKE
A LOT OF MONEY. THEY HAVE THE BEST VEHICLES YOU
CAN BUY. THEY HAVE STRONGER, BIGGER AND
FASTER VEHICLES THAN OUR POLICE HAVE AND THAT ICE HAS AND THAN
BORDER PATROLS HAVE.>>Stephen: I’M TELLING YOU
THESE IMMIGRANTS HAVE UNBELIEVABLE VEHICLES. SOME OF THESE CARS ARE SO BIG,
SO LONG, THEY HAVE WINGS ON THE SIDE AND THEY CARRY HUNDREDS OF
PEOPLE AND THEY GIVE OUT LITTLE BAGS OF HONEY ROASTED PEANUTS
AND FREE COKE. FLY RIGHT HOAFER. BUT STILL, TRUMP MADE IT CLEAR
THAT HE IS OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE WITHIN EARSHOT.>>SO WHY NOT SIGN THE OTHER
BILLS, SOME OF THESE WORKERS CAN GET PAID.>>YOU THINK I SHOULD DO THAT.>>DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO
THAT.>>IT’S NOT FOR ME TO SAY.>>I WATCH YOUR ONE-SIDED
REPORTED, DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO THAT SERIOUSLY, JOHN, DO I
THINK I SHOULD JUST SIGN.>>DOT ARGUE.>>TELL ME, TELL ME.>>NOTHING TO DO WITH BORDER
SECURITY.>>DO YOU THINK I SHOULD SIGN.>>I’M SAYING IF YOU SIGN THAT
THE WORKERS CAN START GETTING PAID.>>SO YOU WOULD DO THAT IF YOU
WERE IN MY POSITION.>>I’M IN THE WHY YOUR POSITION,
I’M ASKING YOU.>>I’M ASKING YOU, WOULD YOU DO
THAT IF WERE YOU IN MY POSITION SWRZ JOHN, I’M ASKING YOU WOULD
YOU DO THAT IN MY POSITION, AND QUICK FOLLOWUP, DO YOU WANT MY
POSITION BECAUSE AT THIS POINT I’M JUST SCARED AND HUNGARY ALL
THE TIME.

  1. If it is a National Emergency, how can you justify waiting three weeks or more to declare it? If you can afford to wait, it's not an emergency.

  2. if and when there is an emergency i would tackle it before it gets worse. i would not wait and let people suffer because i failed to sort it out. do you wait when there is a NATIONAL EMERGENCY or just let people suffer. "Mr trump, where is the emergency.find it and deal with it. immediately".

  3. Not much has been written about the Ibogaine Effect as a serious factor in the presidential decision-making process, but word has leaked out that some of Trump’s top advisers called in a Brazilian doctor who was said to be treating the President with ‘some kind of strange drug'. “It was hard to take the talk seriously,” one reporter wrote—“until I heard about the appearance of a mysterious Brazilian doctor. That was the key.”

  4. If he shuts down the government and/or declares a national emergency he is trying to avoid impeachment. Pence has been a puppet, Mitch McConnell out to lunch, they are stalling as long as possible and will try to shutdown mueller investigation too.

  5. I live Indio, Ca which is an 1hr 30min from Mexicali, B.C, Mexico one of entry points California has. I've been to Mexicali about 35 times in the past two years and there is no immigration crisis. The Coachella Valley has a large immigrant population and it's rather calm here.

  6. the emergency that may or may not really exist and which was caused by trumpish arrogant behavior. got any more overpriced steaks lying around? with the pig face on the wrapper.. you know the guy,

  7. Democrats AKA basic human morals, why tf does he have the power to shut it down anyway? We have checks and balances for a reason, so one idiot in office doesn’t ruin the whole country

  8. Has anyone read the words behind the new york times snippet? Lol it’s about how politics is a poison and his life story

  9. He would have to prove that there actually is an emergency and he cannot.

  10. FAIR PROPOSAL:
    Why can't we fix the asylum process by having people apply through US satellite/pseudo-embassies within their own country, attend a court hearing where they must supply evidence of their claim and get granted/denied based on the testimonies they can prove?
    ..It would also make the process more fair having representatives and officials to such agencies stationed there for appointed terms, given that they can get first-hand experience of the realities faced in those nations, as geography does tend to be a constraint.
    If they have their asylum granted, the means of travel should still be left up to them, so as to encourage taking refuge among the safer neighboring nations rather than presumptuously trekking to the US for opportunities they mistakenly believe are guaranteed.
    We can rent facilities in the foreign nation, grant powers through their own judges to uphold the process and pay their citizens whom are selected to take on much of these tasks so that it is easier to find candidates that know and understand the culture.
    I think it would also serve a latent benefit, as the growing number of asylum claims in any nation can be reported to their leadership, which very well may fill them with enough envy to do something about their own people they govern so that they aren't being shown up by our efforts.
    I want this as part of immigration reform to complement our efforts in strengthening our border security.

  11. i can't stop laughing they tell me this funny show guy with glasses looks like four jackass tell me when funny over

  12. You know the only time I enjoyed watching Colbert on anything was an episode of Law & Order. He was a fraud on there, as well.

  13. Pay the people who are protecting the borders and watching security for this nation … or just spill the truth mr dumbass (trump) that u want us to be attacked in every possible way ( economically, physically and emotionally)

  14. It seems the Trumpsters were waiting to see this monologue just so they can give it a thumbs down. Stephen is still going to go after your fearless, ignorant, head up his butt, orange leader, your rating doesn't make a difference.

  15. “Oh the world will sing of an English king a thousand years from now, and not because he made some laws or had that lofty brow. While bonny good King Richard leads the great crusade he’s on, we’ll all have to slave away for that good-for-nothing John. Incredible as he is inept, whenever the history books are kept, they’ll call him “The Phony King of England”. A pox on the phony king of England!”
    Thanks, Disney! That song is great for practically any incompetent, lying, useless doofus of a wannabe leader!

  16. when trump asked the reporter would you do that in my position, i would have answered, "any sane person would mr president"

  17. look at these demon infested libtards haha trump triggers them everytime and I love watching them squirm and whine still about losing! Trump winning libtRDS LOSING GET USED TO IT!!! MAGA

  18. Where tf did he get this supercar idea? You think they'd be coming here if they had these magic vehicles? I mean damn, sounds like I should head down there and get one!

  19. This wall isn’t just a project. If the wall is made, it will undermine the very ideals our nation, nay, humanity itself was founded upon. Unity. A wall is a symbol of division. The wall will become the face of a country. A country founded on equality and freedom, cutting itself off from the breath of air of another country.

  20. Stephen seems like such a genuine guy. Still down to earth after a long and lucrative career, great listener and interviewer, always improving, good rapport with everyone around him.

  21. Trump is a moron behavior bullshit excuses of a Man voice… I don't understand why people's daily lives think he's so brilliant. This Man putting USA to shame 😠😤😡😡💀💀.

  22. Sparring with reporters.
    This guy trashes decorum every chance he gets.
    And we all may pay a rather huge price because of it

  23. I would not put it beyond one of Trump's dwindling number of henchmen to burn down the Reichstag, in order to "justify" declaring "national emergency" (Stephen Miller as Himmler? – an extrapolation not necessarily far beyond ridiculous ). (FWIW, Cohen currently bears a striking facial resemblance to Speer at the Nuremberg Trail – Google the photos) Moralische Feigling… und Versager…und Verräter (any characteristics sound familiar?) Footnote: Adolf was also "democratically anointed" Shall Robert S. Mueller be our Robert H. Jackson?

  24. Dam right it is and Trump will declare a national emergency and Trump's Military will finish the WALL it's COMING,Trump is absolutely genius the TRAP is Set and the Demonrats walked right into it and there's no ESCAPE For Them GAME OVER GUANTANAMO BAY Prison Awaits your arrivals the Prison barges are Here and will be heading to GUANTANAMO BAY Prison with all u demonrats and x presidents and Lying FAKE NEWS MEDIA AND PIZZAGATE PEDOPHILES inside of it.bad boys what u gonna do when Trump's Military comes for you .RUN

  25. This is just proof that anyone can be a talk show host. Lame, repetitive and unoriginal. GFY you alien-eared letterman-wannabe.

  26. O. My. F. G… I've been out of the country for months, visiting on holiday, and I see the last 30 seconds on this video – the altercation between Trump and someone speaking in the background on Nat'l TV! OMFG… I think it's a good thing I live abroad at this time!! _/ | _!!

  27. It's not the wall, it's the contractor he has promised to profitted himself as a business man. It's all about benefited himself.

  28. What's with the reporter toward the end of this clip. Sounding all nervous about answering what he really wants to say. And I know he is not the only one in that room who feel the same way. No one in the media asks or point out trumps lies after he speaks right to his face. That's why trumps so powerful.

  29. I think a lot of people SPECIALLY AMERICANS DONT KNOW WHAT KGB STAND FOR. Trump has a bussiness with Russia, still have and is allowed to continue to do his bussines in America. Who is supporting him? who is helping him . Is he untouchable ? ???Come on !!!!! question why why they didn't investigate Trump before electing him President . They always run a history check on the candidates for a President .

  30. What makes me mad is if Obama was doing this nobody would say a damn word and Congress would do anything he asks for 🤔😡

  31. "Would you do that in my position?" If I was in your position, we wouldn't be in this position because I'm not a short sighted moron.

  32. Medieval technology!?? Well why didn't he say that before?? I'm sold. Are we going to tar and feather the Mexicans to? Pretty please? Listen, I'm not trying to tell you how to do your job. I'm just saying you suck at doing your job. Wait, do you even know you have a job?

  33. Swear to God, listening to Spanky yammer on and on, lie after bullshit, then more make it up as you go, so nonsensically, makes my ears want to bleed!

  34. 1:30 is this man Retard I don’t think trump is gonna need to find himself 5.7 billion to build the wall he not gonna build himself then makes fun off his voice like how does anyone find this funny he uses comedy to hide his fake facts

  35. 2:30 it was misspoken but it was pure facts he meant I will get money from congress to pay for it so we can stop from pay 500 billion

  36. Not medical technology that’s like saying fire isn’t a good way to burn things cause it’s medival and why it works better now because we don’t really use technology to destroy walls anymore cause look at Syria they stop almost all illegal immigrants with their wall

  37. Yes he has a right to declare a national emergency cause he’s the president who are you just some low life rich guy that reads scripts off a scream I would love that as a job t

  38. the migrants have money for fast and the furious style super cars?
    the cartels do, but a large portion of the migrants are RUNNING from the cartels
    jesus christ, the stupidity of the administration's rhetoric continues to astound

  39. I had 24 / 7 leeches treatments for 8 straight days.
    It's rare, but it still happens.
    But hey, guess what?
    After constant nagging pain and just 17 hours sleep over those 8 days, the process FAILED.
    Fortunately, it wasn't a bad president, and all I lost was a finger.

  40. U have a rasist compulsive liar as President…good luck..next time pls be careful what u wish 4..unless he kills us all that is.

  41. This is the greatest time in American history/ When the flying fuck has an actual peach-orange hybrid made history on a daily fucking basis? And Mexico has "supercars"? Sure, no doubt. This orange ShitduckMcFuckTwatwaffeosaurus is a Fast and Furious franchise addict.

  42. So the poor immigrants who come here just to get on welfare or the refugees who are escaping violence have better vehicles than our police? Um ok. Hints the sarcasm

  43. The one downside when Trump is FINALLY kicked out of office, is that Stephen's material will suffer in terms of hilarity.
