Trump’s Call to Finish the Wall That Hasn’t Been Started | The Daily Show

Trump’s Call to Finish the Wall That Hasn’t Been Started | The Daily Show


If you wanted highlights
last night, the DJT ratings machine
had you covered, ’cause he was also in El Paso
pushing for the wall. Although the timing was
a bit weird. Because, you see,
just before the rally started, news broke that Congress
had reached a bipartisan deal to give Trump $1.37 billion
in funding for a border wall or some type of barrier. And, I mean, that is nice
for Trump that he got something, although,
if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll realize
it’s actually $200 million less than Congress was ready
to give him before the shutdown. Art of the deal. Yeah, but Trump didn’t care
about all that. He was too excited
about his rally to worry
about these stupid details. I have to tell you, as I was walking up
to the stage, they said that… progress is being made
with this committee. So maybe progress has been made,
maybe not. But I had a choice. I could have stayed out there
and listened, or I could have come out to
the people of El Paso and Texas. (cheering and applause) I chose you. Just now. Just now! I said, “Wait a minute. “I got to take care
of my people from Texas. “I got to go. I don’t even want
to hear about it.” (cheering and applause) I don’t want to hear ’em! Did he just turn
into Bill Cosby there? What was that? “I don’t know, I don’t know. (a la Cosby):
“I got to go. “Grab them by the pudding pop. Oh, oh, build the wall.” But that was a pretty insane
admission, right? President Trump is saying, instead of getting informed and then passing that
information on to his audience, he’d prefer
to just get them riled up. Like, that’s what he wants.
He’s like, “They gave me– “I was like, ‘I don’t need this.
I want to go talk to the people.'”
Thank God Trump is president and not my doctor. Be like, “The nurses wanted to show me
a chart of your diagnosis, “but I didn’t have time
for that. “Time to slice and dice! I have this Freddy Krueger glove
I got from the TSA.” So, the truth is Trump was just
in rally mode, right? He didn’t care about the facts
and the figures. In fact, he was so excited, because he was gonna release
his remix to “Build the Wall.” Now, you really mean
“Finish that wall,” because we’ve built a lot of it. -It’s “Finish that wall.”
-(cheering) They’ve built a lot of it?
Wait, what? So now we’re doing
“Finish the wall”? I don’t know how much
actual work they’re doing on the border, but I guess,
in Trump’s chant world, they’re making
a lot of progress. Yeah. “Build the wall! “Finish the wall! Cool, we built the wall! “Build another wall “on top of the old wall! Double-decker wall!” Now, to be fair to Trump, even though zero new miles
of wall have been built under Trump, when he says,
“We’ve built a lot of wall,” Trump is talking
about how he’s upgraded some of the existing fencing
into taller fencing. Yeah. So he solved the problem
of smugglers who are determined
to sneak drugs into America but are too lazy
to buy a somewhat taller ladder. And, as we all know, border security
isn’t just about walls, right? And, at one point, Trump started
to talk about how dogs can also help detect drugs
on the border. But much like a dog himself, Trump got distracted. We have equipment now
that can spot drugs. It’s incredible stuff. By the way, there is nothing better than a good old-fashioned
German shepherd. -It’s hard to believe, right?
-(cheering) You do love your dogs,
don’t you? (cheering) I wouldn’t mind having one,
honestly, but I don’t have any time. How would I look walking a dog
on the White House lawn? -Would that be…
-(cheering) A lot of people say,
“Oh, you should get a dog.” “Why?”
“It’s good politically.” I said, “Look,
that’s not the relationship -I have with my people.”
-MAN: President Obama! We want to have–
Yeah, Obama had a dog. -You’re right.
-(laughter) “Yeah! Obama had a dog!” (laughing) What? Did that guy just scream
Obama had a dog like it’s a bad thing? That’s how much
Trump has persuasion over his people
at these rallies. He managed to turn white people
against dogs. Dogs! The thing white people
love more than anything. When white people
are choosing a movie, they will refuse to watch
anything where a dog dies. They’ll be like,
“Marley & Me is too sad. “Let’s watch Schindler’s List.
Let’s do that. I don’t want
to see a dog dying.” And, by the way,
I don’t understand why Trump doesn’t like dogs. Trump should love dogs. They pee all over your bed, and
you don’t even have to pay them. -(gasping, laughter)
-I know. Bad dog. Bad dog! Bad dog! Who made that joke?
Who made that joke? So last night’s Trump rally
was a Trump rally. He’s gonna build a wall,
the wall’s almost finished, he’ll build the wall out
of dogs. The one new thing
we did learn is that, in addition to words,
the president seems to struggle with numbers, too. By the way, we, I, we– I’m one and one– I’m one for one.
Think of it. We’re–
We had one election. We won. Now we’re gonna be two for O, -and everything’s gonna be
perfect. -(cheering) Yep, yep, yep, that’s right. Trump is one for one, and, if he wins again, he’s gonna be two for O. Uh, that’s not how math works. But at least now we know how
Trump successfully negotiated -$200 million for his wall.

  1. He insulted my hometown. The safest city in the country.
    It's going to effect our economy
    Half of the people were from out of town

  2. Is this like the nazi party where in fifty years when we realize how horrible this guy and his followers are, we can seek out and arrest people who were in the background of his rallies, clearly knowingly participating in his BS? Or are they going to try the "we didn't know" line…

  3. eddie guerreros home town?

  4. go home you little turd, you aint black you shit color! the corruption got squashed! the greed stopped! I believe the first words out of the presidents mouth at the podium was THE DAYS OF SERVING YOURSELF IS OVER!!! USA USA USA!!!

  5. I bet the guy who yelled "Obama had a dog!" Has a dog. Lmao those maga ppl.

  6. Trump probably doesn't like dogs, because dogs can sense fuckery! Lmao

  7. Master Marionettist

  8. Look at his crowd very carefully…I think his crowd knows he's full of shit, but that's okay–It's party time, so who cares? This is what Trump does best–entertain. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that his current gig is supposed to LEADER of the ENTIRE United States, not one third of its inhabitants.

  9. So the name will be "The Wall of El Paso"?

  10. Can we talk about Flint Michigan PLEASE???

  32. That tug of war had someone on each end of it; both sides were holding their ground.

    If you don't understand the premise behind border security spend a week in Juarez or Tijuana.

  33. When will he get over Obama? He will never measure up to Obama.

  34. It’s scary that this many people can be found to make his events look full of supporters wherever he goes…

  35. What a sell out. Of course he will slate him because he is an opportunist and a sell out. Can't stand this man.

  36. Too bad nobody that can spell their own name saw it:(

  37. Honestly idc about what trumps doing politically I don’t want trump as president for a second term because of how the controversy has ripped through out the damn country spiking all sorts of other controversies which then feed back in to these fake sides fueling them giving people more titles that refer to things they personally don’t believe but are called that because it’s the side they were assigned to where these radical nutcases ended up for example if your against gun control people assume you must be against something like pot being legalized (I realize this one isnt example of radical thoughts I’m trying to give examples of the correlation between these unconnected ideas or beliefs) or if your pro gun control people end up thinking you must be also antivax and because of just how much it’s all spiked it’s just fucking everywhere and never ending and the hate keeps going and growing stronger

  38. Love the food,hate the people making it. Wat a damn joke 😡😠. El Paso Brain Dead [email protected]#es. While Trump's in town.

  39. Putz! Putz! Putz!

  50. You mean the wall that has been and is currently under construction? There’s so much footage, even aired by CNN. I don’t know what African is writing for Trevor but he’s clearly not looking into things. Typical.

  51. Come to find out Trump stiffed the town of El Paso for over 400 hundred thousand dallors, for security.

  52. 😃🌻🌞🐶

  53. HEY YOU BITCH ASS TRUMP!! I THOUGHT MEXICO WAS GOING TO PAY FOR THE WALL🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽, BUT THEY LITERALLY SAID "FUCK YOU TRUMP" , NOW US TAX PAYERS WILL PAY FOR IT! BAD THING IS THAT THE BIGGEST DRUG SHIPMENTS ARE COMING THROUGH WATER AND AIR …YOU IDIOT ORANGE BUFOON …FUCK YOU AND ALL YOUR SUPPORTERS ….SO MUCH FOR THE "ART OF THE DEAL" HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  54. Plz natural selection weed them out

  55. Obama had a dog lol

  56. We don't like u here in Texas trump blehhhhh j

  57. What a joke… doesn't he owe the city money?

  58. He sounds like hes been drinking the way he is slurring his speech slightly more than usual

  59. Ugh, I've had enough of trump. Nm that he stirred up racial divide in our county or that he's blatantly cut taxes for the rich and F'd over the middle class. His attempts to convince himself and us of what he is saying are so obvious and old it's not entertaining anymore. He's just a sad old man everyone keeps strocking off.

  60. We have child protective services in the United States child protective services to go to the border Mexico in America and going to these camps and interview the parents to honestly see if they are fit to be parents and if they're not fit to be parents of which most of them aren't take their kids put their kids and group homes or foster homes that can take care of them until they're 18 the same that you would do with a American citizens childsend the parents back to Mexico and tell them if they appear back at the border they will be subject to go straight to jail take their pictures get their signatures a technical contract stating that much because at the end of the day they're saying every time they cannot fend for their own children and it is a lie that needs to be discussion

  61. He PLAYS THEM-like FIDDLES! They cheer for all his Lies & Bullshit!

  62. it cracks me up so much. this fella acts like such a bright star. where is the infrastructure to fund a wall? maybe if we started farm co-ops to assimilate REFUGEES (many are not mere immigrants) we could have a stable platform to build walls from.

  63. Lol double decker wall, don't give Trump more ideas

  64. I feel like all Trump has to do is tell his people we finished the wall and his supporters would believe him.

  65. Seen the supreme Court ruling for wall fund he won losers lol

  66. Im for the wall to keep.them aliens out of space from entering our country lolll

  67. Now i realise how dumb Americans are!! 😂

  68. any one listens to this actor named Trevor Noah, are idiots. lol Trump is very entertaining. you all look like idiots when you try to make fun of him. lol I love it , keep it up. He making you look like jerks. We know what jerks are. Daily show is for jerks.

  69. Trump is acting like a spoiled rich kid who is so dump but somehow became the president of his class

  70. Lol in the suggested videos is literally one showing the wall in el Paso being built…. and another showing how the new wall has made the town safer.

  71. Love this humourous guy 😂

  72. sometimes I just want to see him talk without the sound

  73. I'm sorry to tell you'll but it's true the military is building the wall they're building where's no city near thy are building the wall they just going to stop near the city at the end and them they will finish it

  74. And now el paso knows the real trump. The sad part……. Trump completely ignored the guns and now they hurt el paso

  75. Progress has made
    Or maybe not
    Jajajaja .,…

  76. President Trump is freaking Awesome 🙂

  77. Sometimes I question if the “Build the wall” idea will even really work. Can you not use a really tall ladder? Can you not dig your way under the wall? Someone or a group can even find several ways to destroy part of the wall anyway. Besides, the whole idea of building a wall around the entire U.S border is rather . . . unrealistic. The United States is after all the third largest population in the world — after China and India, so I bet some of them would have all kinds of ideas about this.

    At the very least in architectural possibilities, that would take more than Trump’s first or even theoretical second term. And it’s much faster to destroy a wall than to build one. China did something similar with the Great Wall, and it didn’t really stop people from going to China, is there? No, if anything, it just increased tourism. Besides, I don’t think Trump’s wall can get tall enough to reach that kind of wall. Can you not still get in there with airplanes or helicopters though? How about through sea at the sides of the United States? I’ve played enough educational apps about countries to know my geography. I wonder.

  78. why are trump supporters so old white and ugly?? its like a 40 year class reunion for a high school of inbreeds

  79. 🤣 …i can’t stop laughing 😂

  80. We don't love dogs more then anything! Accidentally closes phone sees dog screen saver…

  85. Build the wall(fence)
