Trump’s 2020 State of the Union | The Daily Show


Less than an hour ago, President Trump finished his third State of the Union
address. Now, the State of the Union
has been going on for hundreds of years.
I know that. But-but when you take
a step back, you have to admit, it’s kind of
weird as a tradition, right? ‘Cause why does the president
get to give his own job evaluation? That’s strange.
Nobody else gets to do that. He’s just up there, like,
“My economy, the best ever. “My military, the best ever. “My children, “eh, D-plus. Eric, Eric,
you’re holding us down.” But this year’s State
of the Union was extra weird, because, in case you forgot, it’s happening right in the
middle of Trump’s impeachment. Right? So, for months,
Democrats have been saying that Trump is a threat
to democracy and a danger to the republic. But now they just have
to sit there and clap while he gives a speech. That is wild.
It’s like two di– It’s-it’s like you’re
in the middle of firing someone who’s belligerent at work, but then you get interrupted
by their birthday party. You know what I mean?
It’s like, “You were caught stealing, Jake.
You’re always late. “You’re a sc…
♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ Happy birth… ♪
“You’re fired. ♪ To-to you. ♪ (quietly):
I’m gonna kill you.” Now, not everyone, not everyone was willing to deal
with tonight’s awkwardness. At least ten Democrats decided
that they were gonna boycott the speech, including
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. -(cheering and applause)
-Right? Who tweeted, who tweeted– and I love this– she was like,
“None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it.” Which makes sense. And I’m
totally gonna use that excuse to get out of any plans
in the future. I’m just gonna be like,
“It is not normal “to throw a gender reveal party. I will not legitimize it!” But for those who did show up, they got to witness
a very awkward start to the State of the Union,
where Nancy Pelosi tried to shake Trump’s hand
but he was having none of it. (applause) (audience oohing) Ooh. That’s embarrassing. That’s embarrassing.
Now, look, either Trump didn’t see
Pelosi’s hand or he just didn’t want
to shake it. But, honestly, I think
it was probably for the best. Yeah. Because she’s wearing
a white suit. Yeah. And then she’d have nowhere
to wipe off the chicken grease that’s always
on the president’s hands. That combined with spray tan,
it doesn’t come out. But awkward handshake aside, Trump was focused tonight, and he dove right
into his greatest hits. I am thrilled to report
to you tonight that our economy
is the best it has ever been. Our families are flourishing. Our values are renewed. Our pride is restored. The state of our union is stronger than ever before. (cheering and applause) (laughter) (cheering and applause) Oh, man. Oh, man. You know what I love
about old black people’s faces? They always tell the truth.
Always tell the truth. ‘Cause you can tell Congressman
James Clyburn over here did not agree with that one.
Like, look at that. That’s the face of every
old-timer in the barbershop when someone says any basketball
player is better than Jordan. They’re just like,
“Come on, man. “He got six rings, “and he beat the Monstars. Come on, man.” Now, traditionally,
traditionally, the State of the Union
is more about what the president has done
and what he plans to do. But, tonight, Trump took a lot
of time out of his speech to show off
his player-hating degree. If we hadn’t reversed
the failed economic policies of the previous administration, the world would not
now be witnessing this great economic success. My administration reversed
the failing policies of the previous administration
on Cuba. Under the last administration, more than ten million people
were added to the food stamp rolls. In eight years
under the last administration, over 300,000 working-age people
dropped out of the workforce. Come on. Really? It’s been three years
since Obama’s been out of the White House, but, still,
Trump is obsessed with him. He’s just after– I wonder if
he does this with Melania, too. You know? Just like,
“Remember your ex, Ivan? “Well, guess what, he still
works at Slovenian Food Locker. And I bet he never got you
your own bedroom to sleep in.” And you may remember,
you may remember, last year,
Trump took a lot of flak for delivering
a State of the Union address during Black History Month and barely mentioning
black people. But this year,
the commander in chief rode in on the soul train. African-American youth
unemployment has reached an all-time low. African-American poverty
has declined to the lowest rate
ever recorded. We achieved record
and permanent funding for our nation’s
historically black colleges and universities. Opportunity Zones, a plan spearheaded
by Senator Tim Scott -as part of our great Republican
tax cuts. -(applause, cheering) Opportunity Zones
are helping Americans, like Army veteran Tony Rankins. A few weeks ago,
I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to “Brigadier General.” -Thank you, sir.
-(cheers and applause) Damn. Donald Trump made sure that this time,
his speech was a lot more black. Yeah, although I do think
he went too far when he delivered the rest
of the speech in a do-rag. -That was a bit extreme.
-(laughter) Was a bit extreme. Now, of course… Now, of course, no Trump speech
would be complete without an absolute blatant lie. And for tonight’s address, Trump went with an old classic,
and that is that he’s the champion
of health care. I’ve also made an ironclad
pledge to American families. We will always protect patients
with preexisting conditions. (cheers and applause) Really? That lie is so extreme
that if Trump was Pinocchio, he would have impaled
Mitch McConnell in his seat. (laughter) Just stabbed him
right in the chest. “Muh. Joke’s on you.
I’m all skin. Muh.” (laughter) -Because…
-(applause) Because here’s the truth.
Here’s the truth, right? Trump tried
to kill protections for preexisting conditions
when he went after Obamacare. And right now, right now,
his administration is in court trying to kill it again. So him claiming
to be the champion of protecting
preexisting conditions is like the Coronavirus
being like, “I love Chinese people.
I really do! I really do!” (laughter) But if there was one theme for
tonight’s State of the Union, it was Trump doing
what he does best– creating a show made for TV. TRUMP:
I can proudly announce tonight that an Opportunity Scholarship
has become available. It’s going to you,
and you will soon be heading to the school of your choice. (cheers and applause) And Rush, in recognition of all that you have done
for our nation, I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving
our country’s highest civilian honor– the Presidential
Medal of Freedom. (cheers and applause) Tonight,
we have a very special surprise. I am thrilled to inform you that your husband is back
from deployment. He is here with us tonight, and we couldn’t keep him waiting
any longer! (cheers and applause) Okay, he might not be
a great president, but you have to admit, this man
knows how to put on a show. ‘Cause the entire night,
he just kept announcing surprise after surprise after surprise. Like, I thought by the end
of the night, he was gonna go, “Believe it or not, folks,
I’ve locked up Hillary Clinton! “Bring out the cage! “Bring out the cage,
Jeffrey Epstein! That’s right, folks!
Surprise, surprise!” (laughter) So, that was the final State of
the Union of Trump’s first term, and judging by the 212 standing
ovations on the Republican side, they’re loving their guy. But as for the Democrats, I think Nancy Pelosi’s actions
speak louder than words. -(applause and cheering)
-Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America. Thank you very much. (indistinct chatter) LESTER HOLT:
A stunning moment here at the end
of the president’s speech. Nancy Pelosi tearing up
what appeared to be a copy -of the president’s speech.
-WOMAN: Wow. -Holy shit!
-(laughter) Nancy Pelosi has done it again. I feel like every year,
she finds a new way to show Trump
just how little she thinks of him and his speech. Because last year, you remember,
was the sideways clap. -You remember that? Yeah?
-(laughter) And then this year,
she rips up his speech. Trump better pray he doesn’t get
another State of the Union, because at this rate, next time,
she’s just gonna show up and throw vegetables at him
during the speech. He’ll be like,
“No. Please, no vegetables! No! I’d rather be reimpeached!” Now, on a normal night, the State of the Union
would be the major news, but right now– and here’s something
you only hear every four years– everyone is talking about Iowa. -Yeah.
-(laughter) Because last night
was the Iowa Caucuses, right? The first vote of the Democratic
primary campaign. And normally,
we would know by now who’d won. In fact, normally,
we would have known last night. But this year, Democrats decided
to use a new app to help count the votes, and, uh,
it has not gone as planned. The only results
from the Iowa Caucus at this hour
are chaos and confusion. Chaos, confusion, meltdown– pick your adjective
to describe Iowa Caucuses. What a mess! This is not
the finish that anyone expected. It certainly was a mess, and some here are calling it
a disaster. WOMAN 4: Organizers in the state
cite a domino effect of problems for the delay. Several issues with the new app where results were
to be inputted. They had a-a really crummy app that, uh, screwed up
the entire thing. Right now, no idea when we are
going to know the results. So, everyone
really is just waiting for these official results… So, we wait, and at the moment,
we have nothing. (laughter) You know… you know what I love
about cable news in America– right?– is their dedication
to filling air time with absolutely nothing. Right? ‘Cause they’re like,
“We’re not getting any results. Uh, nothing is happening.” It’s like, okay, do you guys
want to cover the coronavirus or some other international news
in the meantime? It’s like,
“No, no, we’ll just keep talking “about how nothing is happening. “Anything yet? No? Nothing? More nothing? Okay.
Uh-huh, uh, more nothing? Yeah?” But yes, the app that
the Democrats commissioned to make vote-counting easier
ended up malfunctioning and screwing up
the entire night. And I guess, what do you expect? I mean, the average age
of the party leadership is, like, 85 years old. Right? What do they know
about apps? The only thing
they know about apps is that you get one for free
with the early bird special. That’s it. And honestly,
it’s a little embarrassing for the world’s greatest
democracy to have such a hard time
counting votes. I mean,
America is usually the one teaching the rest of the world
how to vote. But maybe next time
Africa should send some election observers to Iowa,
that’s what they should do. They’d be like, “Ah,
I can fix this for you, ah? “Yeah, we’ve been fixing
elections for many years. -Don’t worry.”
-(laughter, applause) So… so, because of this app, the whole night was thrown
into utter chaos. Nobody knew
what the problem was. Nobody knew who won,
and eventually, the candidates got tired
of waiting. And they came out
to try and spin the non-results in the best way they could: “Oh,
we’re happy, things are great, this is gonna be good for us.” But one candidate in particular
took that to the next level. So, we’re still waiting
for any results from last night’s
Iowa Democratic caucuses. But… that
hasn’t stopped candidates from spinning
the nonexistent results. Former mayor of South Bend
Pete Buttigieg declared victory overnight.
Listen. We know, by the time
it’s all said and done, Iowa, you have shocked
the nation. By all indications, we are going
on to New Hampshire victorious! (cheering) (laughter) Well, okay, Pete. You’re just gonna come out
and claim victory even though no results
were in at that point? That’s a pretty bold move. I mean, maybe
that’s just his thing. Maybe Pete does that.
Anytime anything’s ambiguous, no one knows, he just jumps in.
You know, like, (British accent): “Now, nobody
knows who built Stonehenge…” He’s like, “Oh, it was me,
it was me, I did it. I did it.” So the whole night was chaos. And what’s interesting,
what’s really interesting is that even before
last night’s meltdown, people were worried
about relying on this app. Right? But the head
of Iowa’s Democratic Party was like, “Don’t worry, baby,
we got this.” NEWSMAN:
The day before the caucus we asked state party chairman
Troy Price if he had any fear
about tech glitches or other problems. Do you have
a nightmare scenario, and if so,
what do you do about it? These are probably the most
prepared we’ve ever been as party for these caucuses. We’ve run through
a few different scenarios, but I can tell you we’re ready. (groaning, laughter) (applause) This is the most prepared
you’ve ever been as a party? So what would have happened
if you didn’t prepare? “Bad news, everyone.
The app automatically changed “all of the votes
to the GEICO Lizard. Uh, so he’s our nominee now.” Now, even though last night
was a disaster, honestly, the caucus system
wasn’t that great even before the app meltdown. It’s a crazy, crazy system. Because in the Iowa caucus,
you don’t just come in and vote. It’s a whole complicated system
where you spend hours walking around and building
coalitions in a hot gym. You know?
It’s like a high school dance without the possibility
of a hand job. -(laughter)
-And… and apparently,
when there’s a tie, that’s when the rules get
really dumb. There’s 11 delegates
to split up, and you can’t split ’em in half,
so the fairest way to decide is a coin toss. She’s gonna call heads or tails. -WOMAN: Okay.
-WOMAN 2: Tails. (indistinct talking) -Okay…
-(laughter) It’s… it’s bad enough
to break ties with a coin flip, but it looked like this guy
didn’t even know how to do… a coin flip. You… you can’t have people
that young flipping coins. They don’t use real money
anymore. We’re lucky he didn’t open
the Venmo on his phone -and just throw it up
in the air. -(laughter) What was that? (applause) So, the Iowa caucuses
were a mess, and it never would have happened if the Democrats didn’t try
to rely on that new fancy app. Luckily, though, luckily…
there’s another hot new solution that just came out
of Silicon Valley that can fix voting forever. WOMAN: Introducing the latest
in voting technology, thousands of years
in the making. Meet… paper– the newest innovation
in counting ballots. It’s only
half a millimeter thin, fits in your pocket,
and holds its charge forever. Paper has
a user-friendly interface for election officials
of any age, with cutting-edge technology. Really cutting-edge. (gasps)
Ahh. Available
in both mini and pro models. Best of all, it’s hacker-proof, and always beats rock. PAyPR. Why complicate things. I can’t wait for the future.

  1. Never forget – it was this very same media which helped get Trump elected. I'm guessing amnesia is a fundamental requirement for candidates seeking employment.

  2. Pence looks like a white supremacy booble head …..O yeah that's his job. Does the wife, he calls his mother approve of him sitting next to a woman. Nancy grip would crush pres. tiny hands in a hand shake.

  3. The greatest issue we have in dealing with (and hopefully ridding ourselves of) Trump is that, because he speaks like an idiot (something that reassures his fellow idiots) and as far as can be observed appears to have little to no understanding of…well…anything… he is dangerous. Ignorance and power (money) combined are horrendous, more so in someone as empty as Trump–something we could easily see in his little "I win, I'm better than you, nee ner nee ner speech/SOTU" that I suppose he thought was a very grand thing, but alas, only showed us yet another layer of the complete void that he is inside. Watching him go on about himself before tossing his pyrite coins in token nods (to economy, education/scholarships, Veterans, etc) and, (Rush Limbaugh–really?) awards undeserving was truly akin to the most grandiose rantings of a demented and dying emperor of Rome; one in which the US plays his personal arena and we the people watch to see what unfortunate group of us (the working poor, elderly, disabled, women, LGQBT, imigrants etc…) will be pushed before the lions next (those bought–off SOB Republicans swearing an Oath to We the People only to truly show the Roman colors of their Senate as they bid for power and loot the coffers, dancing along to the madman's "fake news" opera; a tragedy that leaves us begging for a final curtain call.

  4. At the 12:26 mark, Mayor Pete Buttigieg acts like he won and Trevor does not understand, which is understandable, considering there are no official results.

    However, since Iowa was a Caucus, and not a Primary, it was an event where people group together in areas, to publicly show which Candidates they support. Buttigieg's people could, at least informally, gt an indication of his support by looking at how people grouped themselves and other data.

    Thus, it was not hubris on Mayor Pete's part.
    And later, it was shown, that while Bernie won the Popular Vote, Pete won Iowa's equivalent of the Electoral College.

  5. I got to wonder what Mike Pence was thinking when he saw Nancy start ripping up the speech in the side of his eye. His face was as expressionless as ever… that's a accomplishment on it's own I guess. It's a pitty Trump didn't saw it in the moment as he, for sure, lacks the self restrained Mike Pence is famous for LOL!

  6. Really didn't talk about Trump promising more action on Venezuela? Or mention the fake president he is supporting??? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

  7. Giving an undeserving award to that obnoxious prick Limbaugh, makes me wanna puke. Drumpf's speech is misleading & full of BS, as usual!!

  8. Dude your so bias
    Your still gonna defend the way democrats act ?
    Smh your loosing viewers like a mofo
    If Nancy hit him you would defend her

  9. Trevor noah is hilarious i wish people would just realize that he has no political sense whatsoever. He just sucks to much trans dick

  10. listen well ! I need to say this as we know Trump is a liar! first of all listen Obama put into policy in 2012 that if you applied for any money from defacs aid for dependent children or food stamps and your youngest child was three years or older , you must I repeat must go looking activley for a job they handed you a piece of paper with 5 numbers on it you must get a signiture from the place that you went to all week . or you can work for your check ! the results is that more hispanics and blacks are working. but Obama also wanted to raise the minuim wage which the republican senators said no so here are the results more blacks and hispanics are working but guess what we are working two and three jobs okay Trump for taking credit for something that has nothing to do with you! where is the raise of the minumim wage ! STOP THE FAKE SOME OF US KN OW BETTER!

  11. Trump is giving loads of garbege to poor Americans, so sad but he doesn't talk about 85 % loss in soy export , poor farmers are waiting for handouts
    did he just say he has giving more food stamps ? ?
    sounds like a great economy …..

  12. God this show used to be great. Now it only care about punching down and pushing leftist agenda…also call me whatever buzz words you want I DO NOT CARE

  13. An applause for AOC and fellow toxic politicians who don’t want to exercise diplomacy? This show loves to groom the anti American crowd.

  14. Trump may reverse some decisions of past party presidents but he in turn diminishes any economic growth with his spending habits on just his trips to FL. According to a Government Accountability Office report from the year of 2018, just one month of Trump travel cost the tax payers $13.6 million.

  15. Paypr- beauty of simplicity. But now seriously how much could you save quitting these stupid, complicated expensive voting machines and software?

  16. I wish YouTube would stop putting Trevor Noah vids in my face. I freaking can't stand his brand of woke/corporate bullshit.

  17. ..'The Price Is Right..Come On Down'….'You Showcase Tonight Is… Full Medical Care For A Day & A Vote For Satan You Need Not To Leave Your Home For'!.. All you have to do is spell the word TRUMP.. You can phone a friend!?

  18. It was a game show giving away cash n prizes it is a scam and Americas love for MONEY and showcases will be their destruction. Read thru the bullshit all you have to do is ride around your city abandoned houses closed buildings payless shoes toys r us sears and more to come that's job's that's lives he and the republicans don't give a shit about

  19. This is such a shit with this orange pedophile baby president. It would be a miracle if the orange baby actually acted like an adult human being for the first time in his life. This president is just sad, pitiful, and disgusting.

  20. Ya news realize that the more ya talk about trump the more people want to vote for him…I was a Democrat and now I'm a Republican thanks to ya…

  21. Still trying to shoot down anything "Obama".
    He will never be 1% of the kind of person President Obama is!
    What the holy hell has Rush done for this country???

  22. Ivanka give another hand hug this year? Does he think he is playing the wizard in the Wizard of Oz or something? What ABOUT PLANS FOR,THE NEXT,YEAR….HOW ABOUT REAL FACTS AND FIGURES..,???NANCY HAD. HER CHANCE

  23. Noah aka curious George. Seriously you are not funny but you are a JOKE. Impeachment is over. Not guilty. You fucking moron.

  24. Most of the commentators before me seem to be anti Trump… Even this channel….. Pussies… Stupids and fools… Who have no balls for logic but rather emotion

  25. Vote blue, even if a toaster is the chosen candidate. It won’t lie, wont hide its tax returns, won’t golf, won’t insult and alienate people, won’t sow division, won’t pander to neo nazis and racists, nor will it spend its valuable time writing on Twitter. Just 2 of these things makes a toaster twice the president than the buffoon currently occupying the office.

    It should be clear to any half decent human being how incompetent, corrupt, dumb, and wholly unsuitable Agolf Twittler was and now, through the evidence of his time in office, actually is for the role as a leader. No other country where people are free to vote, would elect someone like Drumpf unless they were overtaken by racists, or neo nazis, or such similar trash, and even they would think twice. Heck, no sensible company that has any desire to truly succeed, would ever select him as their leader. Yet the republicans did and do back him, after many of them spoke bad of him at first, because they know the truth about him. But then they began to sing a very different tune once they realized that from the tea party and onwards, the Republican base had changed to a large part of racist, bigoted, fearful and hateful people who simply shout loudly and pretend that the noise equals more people than they really are. They bowed under the pressure of these deplorable individuals, reshaping the people and course of this once respectable Republican Party.

    We all know the truth of this, people the world over do, and yet, the Republicans defend him and back him at the expense of truth, morality, ethics, the American people, and their health and well being, not to mention the security and stability of the world. This abysmal, corrupt and traitorous behavior is paving the way for future record breaking corruption of politicians and the system. Republicans act in a complete partisan way while accusing others of doing so, they commit the crime while accusing the victims of doing so. Corruption has reached record breaking levels amongst them primarily and this support of the orange buffoon at the expense of all that is decent has caused and will yet cause severe damage to this nation and beyond.

    When will Republican voters, those who aren’t racist, misogynistic, fearful of any other color than their own, hateful, and neo nazis, wake up to realize that the Republican Party of old is long gone, overtaken by people who put their careers and self before country, even the God and religion they proclaim to follow. Would Jesus ever want to be seen with a man like Trump??? The self-confessed female genitalia grabbing, self-confessed “exaggerator of the truth” (=liar), and Russian candidate. Many of those who elected this moron to govern, have no functioning moral compass. To call yourself a Christian and vote for Drumpf is a complete contradiction.

  26. It is totally obvious (proven by Trevor) that Trump haters are at an insane level of jealousy of the achievements and popularity of Trump. 😆😂🤣…….The petty criticism is just such a stupid gratification.

  27. Lies on the internet live just as well as the truth and Trumps base will never fact check the garbage he spews daily. Trump was on stage doing material all designed to feed his massive ego.

  28. What has that Pelosi cunt really done for the US? For one, had these Biden criminals been Republican she would have accused Trump of keeping his hand above their heads had he NOT asked to investigate these OBVIOUSLY corrupt fuckers. And the old chimp shaking his head while Trump just released his "bothers" from prison is typical low IQ ignorance.

  29. He is a con man and there goes America.My question is do people care about freedom?it is obvious that not enough do care about freedom.if you care about freedom stand up our lose it . It is as simple as that.

  30. Right to lifers always support politicians that want to cut health care, education, you known all of those things that children need— what the Hell? We have a child poverty crisis in the US. Trump never talks about that——

  31. At 8:08 Trevor says… the final SOTU of Trump’s First Term!!! Has someone noticed it? Conspiracy Theory? He already knows he is going for second? So freaking creepy

  32. And how the president going to say that we are go back to Cole when he damn sure knows that we need to be better so that we can save the Earth because he don't know what the hell you doing you don't even know what he's doing as a businessman either he just lose so much money he probably lost Life 50 billion dollars just in his business and what he's doing to this country Ashley even lost more than that he lost trillions so he needs to shut his fat trap up man cuz he ain't my president

  33. And what's wrong with this guy he cutting you just want to do black people dirty Straight Like That yay for us if y'all don't see that y'all suck
