World War D: Damage Control Edition | The Daily Show

As we get closer and closer
to the primaries, all the Democratic candidates
are learning that while the beginning
of the race was fun and games, once you get into crunch time, people start digging
into your history. And this weekend,
everyone was talking about a confrontation
involving Joe Biden, the candidate
with the most history. Democratic front-runner
Joe Biden just got into it
with a local voter. Words were exchanged
and then a challenge. Fire away. You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true,
and no one has ever said that. All right. You said I set up my son
to work in an oil company. Isn’t that what you said? Get your words straight, Jack. Look, fat, look,
here’s the deal. Here’s the deal. (audience groans) Whoa! Damn. That got testy. It was also a weird moment,
though, you have to admit. This guy said he was concerned that Biden might be too old
to run for president, and then instead of addressing
the man’s concerns, Biden challenged him
to push-ups? (laughter) You realize, Joe Biden,
this could have ended terribly. Because what if
that old man beat Biden? Hmm? Now he’s the Democratic
front-runner, right? Yeah, that’s how it works.
We’ve all watched Black Panther. If you beat the guy in charge,
you become the guy in charge. -That’s how it works.
-(cheering and applause) That’s how it works. Wouldn’t be push-ups. The old guy would have ripped up
his shirt like, “Is this your nominee?
Is this your nominee?” And then every one
of those old white people in the town hall would have
been there like, “Oh!” (laughter) And, like, I think this
is what shows you what’s wrong with American politics
right now. A candidate and a voter should
never be calling each other fat and old, all right? They should be calling
each other’s mamas fat and old. Let’s keep things civilized,
people. But while Biden is fighting off
corruption allegations and challenging voters to meet
him out in the parking lot, his great-great-great-grandson
Pete Buttigieg is dealing with a controversy
about a lack of transparency. You see,
a lot of people were concerned that Buttigieg
wasn’t allowing the press to attend
his fundraising events, but when he was asked
about the issue, Buttigieg couldn’t even pretend
to give a shit. Buttigieg is doing
a little bit better. He’s getting more attention. He says he will think
about opening his fundraisers, and he had a tart response
on Friday to reporters who asked when
he’ll make that decision. What’s that? Yes. What’s that? There are a lot
of considerations, and I’m thinking about it. WOMAN:
Last question. No. Thank you. (laughter) Damn! Looks like someone
started growing chest hair. Oh! You know, I know we always joke about Buttigieg
looking like he’s 15, but in that press conference, he was acting like a teenager,
too, right? It was just like that moment.
“Did you do your homework?” “Yes.” “Do you have it?” “Yeah.” “Can I see it?” “No.” (laughter) Now, Buttigieg might have been
all gangster at the podium, but the backlash to this
was so swift that he and his team
had to announce today that they will now be opening up
his fundraisers to the press. And one thing Buttigieg did
that was really slick was that he took
his transparency issues and tried to turn them around
on one of his opponents. NEWSWOMAN:
Buttigieg’s campaign has also been calling
on Elizabeth Warren to release her tax returns
from before 2008 during her time
as a corporate lawyer. Last night, she did, revealing that she made
nearly $2 million from private legal work
since 1986. $2 million? I knew it! Elizabeth Warren’s out here
acting all folksy, but it turns out this whole time
she had a job? (laughter) ‘Cause that’s what’s funny
about this story. No, if you read it,
the headlines make it sound like Elizabeth Warren
was balling out of control, but, in reality,
she earned $2 million over 30 years. Yeah. Which averages out
to a modest $60,000 a year. That is the complete opposite
of balling. At $60,000 a year, you aren’t
popping champagne in the club. You’re carefully removing
the cork, pouring it into a glass
and then saving the rest for the time
you come back to the club. (laughter and applause) So, that’s a quick update of what’s happening
in the Democratic race. And you know what’s funny
about this whole thing for me? The Democrats are trying so hard to defend even the smallest
skeletons in their closet. Meanwhile, Trump’s
rolling through the streets with a squad of skeletons like,
“These aren’t skeletons. “These are just skinny people. And if you don’t believe me,
you can do push-ups.”

  1. They stayed home and ruined Hilary chances while the Republicans went full steam and voted swampy, con- man Trump as their President. Even after 3 years, they still have nt learnt why they lost and Republicans won.

  2. Sometimes I wonder if your citizen should be allowed to vote at all.. I mean, based on what I've seen you guys don't seem interested in the things that matter.

  3. Biden's mouth is the end of him. It's like he opens his mouth and his brain goes "I'm bout to end this man's whole career"

  4. 2020 politics will never be this entertaining again, I would even be willing to bet there will be an Civil War in USA somewhere in the next 4-8 years.

  5. Pouring champagne carefully LMAO 🙂 I wish I had that lifestyle again. I'm living a pour the micky-ultra carefully lifestyle atm




  7. READ THE TRANSCRIPT, Trevor. 'Jack' said he was as old as Biden, and that it worried him.
    Biden, looking at Jack's fat arse to start with, justifiably challenged him to show he was in better shape than 'Jack', besides his IQ.

  8. Look I’m gonna go out on a limb here, but, why don’t we just make Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic fight at catchweight 225 for the Presidency?

  9. It's funny that they bring up Warren's $2 million over the course of 20 years, but they don't bring up the fact that she has said the corporate campaign contributions are a corrupting influence while at the same time saying she would accept corporate campaign contributions if she becomes the democratic candidate. And they mention the fact that she says she is running a grassroots campaign, but is also using corporate donations from her senate run to fund her presidential campaign.

  10. Imagine getting your propaganda from a guy who shilled for Robert Byrd's protege???

  11. Failed comedian got nothing besides making irrelevant jokes of President Trump, low life producer, director ,writer and TV channel
    God Bless America

  12. Trevor, you're being made fun of on youtube all over the place for not talking about SA fqrmers and not being American and talking shit about America as a foreigner.

  13. You can see the problem with everything in our government right there in the video.. that looks like a class reunion from the 60’s. If we young people don’t go and VOTE we won’t see change, we outnumber them by so much.! We can change the question is do we really want to?

  14. Trevor, I used to feel that you carried a thread of grounded sanity throughout your entire commentary/humor…. what happened? Where’s the thread now? It’s just a mock everyone fest…. I’m getting tired and worn out with it.

  15. Please run Hillary please democrats. She deserves another shot she won the popular vote. Hillary is the best democratic candidate.

  16. i truly don't have any other show in head when it comes to consitently making me laugh while explaning fairly honestly and quite simply the news about what happens in the world. Even better they gettin better it seems

  17. Biden and Pete are only in the spotlight because Media put them there, no informed voter actually prefers them.

    Left media profits when Republicans are in office, they are propping up candidates that can not win… On purpose

  18. Not from the US. But seems to me like dems hold their leaders to higher moral standards than repubs do. That's why the dems candidate have to keep defending themselves.

  19. Mmmmm…A lot of the money Warren made was because Harvard hired her as a Person of Color professor as she declared herself Native American, which she has now denied that she is…

  20. Biden is a horrible candidate.
    It's not presidential to call a constituent/ potential voter fat or personally challenge them. Make an argument and prove your point like an adult. I thought he was trying to bring back civility.

  21. Biden needs to keep his composure a bit more… He done went Hood on em lol. I still like ya Biden but support someone else.

  22. Not a Biden fan but it seems people think biden was just randomly challening him to push ups just cuz hes trying to be macho. But it was clear to me the reason he challenged the questioner to pushups/iq test was because questioner opened with hes got 2 problems with biden and #1 is hes as old as the questioner, meaning he may not be as sharp or as healthy as a younger candidate would be. So I felt biden was basically saying "yea we're the same age but just because you feel 'too old', I dont" but decided to relay that message in a dumb way

  23. The moment we will cease to be our once great nation is the moment when we choose to be handed things instead of pushing for policies that allow each of us to succeed with personal initiative and effort in the context of a decent and strong society. No one wants to follow someone weaker than themselves. The "strength" being displayed by these candidates is not drawn from their own actual character, it's all an imitation of what's winning right now.

    It's just like the modern music industry…….copy, copy, copy and copy again.

  24. That gas company appointed him as board member just because he was the son of Vice president of the USA Period. This is not a crime but unethical.

  25. This is just one of the things on the laundry list of Mayo Pete controversies: the police chief scandal in South Bend, his work at McKinsey, his CIA connections, his entire image, etc.

  26. Any of Democrats front runners becoming US President is 1000 times better than re-electing Trump. It will be a huge relieve in political history of America and the world will see US correcting the mistake.

  27. Not one of these candidates could hold a handle to Trump. Most of them would devastate the economy, Isis would come back two fold, they would kiss other leaders asses and get taken advantage of, per usual, borders would become floodgates. They’re basically all weak. They would deliver on nothing that they offer.

  28. Democratic voters need to start settling in to the fact that their most likely choice come November is going to be Trump or Biden. Biden may well lose both Iowa and New Hampshire and, like Clinton in 1992, still with the nomination. His support among older voters, moderate and conservative Democrats, and black voters is still nearly insurmountable, and he leads his closest challenger (Sanders) by 13 points nationally. Warren's surge is unfortunately over and she's now back down to polling around 14% and she may lose Iowa (which she badly needed) to Buttigieg who has zero chance nationally. It's only 55 days to the Iowa caucus and the race will most likely be decided with in the first two months of primaries.

  29. If biden understands that his behavior is sick and still does it, then he's not fit to be president. And if he doesn't understand that's a problematic attitude, then he's just a democratic Trump.
    Both ways I am sorry that he is even in the race!

  30. Hey you idiots instead of fighting each other why don't you all scream for Trump's tax and don't stop until he does return this is why you might lose the election

  31. Disappointing edits you made in that video. You cut out the second part where the farmer claimed that Biden send his son into Ukraine to get access for the president.

  32. People are paying attention to what the Dems are doing? I thought they had free reign to get in any sort of controversy, while everyone has their eyes on our stupid fucking idiot President and his stupid fucking idiot mistakes.

  33. I'm starting to think we don't need a Democratic president. I'm sorry they have no clue what they're doing. And they act more like kids then president. Do you really want another kid in office??
