So Much News, So Little Time – The 2026 World Cup & Bill Clinton’s Dodgy Interview | The Daily Show

October 10, 2019


Michael Cohen President Trump’s personal
attorney, and guy who looks like he’s always reading bad news
about himself. Cohen has more inside
information about Donald Trump than probably anyone else
in the world. So the news that Cohen is now
likely going to cooperate with federal investigators is not great news
for the White House. And I can’t wait to see how
Trump is gonna try to distance himself from Cohen.
He’s gonna be like, (mimics Trump)
“Look, when I said Michael “is like a son to me, I meant
because I barely know him. I think he’s a loser and I want
nothing to do with him.” (normal voice):
Now, we could talk about how Michael Cohen flipping could
be the biggest legal problem for President Trump since he
found out the constitution isn’t just a list
of suggestions, but we don’t have the time
for that, because a federal judge
has approved one of the biggest corporate
mergers in American history. Now to that blockbuster deal
that could have a major effect on your phone and TV bills and
the kind of service you get. A federal judge approving AT&T’s $85 billion takeover
of Timer Warner. This makes, um, AT&T an
extremely powerful company. And what it means for
the consumer is that now, housed under one roof,
will be satellite, wireless, HBO, CNN, TNT, TBS and Warner Brothers. Finally. Time warner and AT&T
are joining forces. This is such great news
for consumers. Because now, we can get all of our horrible customer service
in one place. So dope. It’s gonna be interesting to see what AT&T does with HBO though,
you know. Like, are they gonna be
cross-promoting? Like, you’ll be watching
Game of Thrones, and instead of sending a raven
Jon Snow is just gonna FaceTime? Is that what happens? Be like, (with accent):
“Jon Snow, when are you gonna come back
and visit me?” (mimics Jon Snow): “With this
amazing unlimited data plan, I don’t need to.” (laughter and applause) (normal voice): Now, now,
opponents of the merger are concerned that concentrating
so much power in one media company
could stifle competition, raise prices
and even affect content. But, honestly,
as somebody in the media, I can assure you that it
won’t change anything. For instance,
our parent company, Viacom, was just bought by DiGiorno’s, and that doesn’t affect what we report
on the show, right? In other news, Sbarro’s: is it the devil’s pizza? Well, all the pedophiles
who love it say yes. Now, if we had time, we’d delve into the world
of corporate mergers, and we’d look
at how media consolidation could lead to monopolies
and consumer choice is reducing, but luckily we don’t have time
for that boring shit because America just won
the World Cup… hosting responsibilities. Now to that breaking news
about the World Cup. Just moments ago,
soccer’s governing body announcing
that a joint North America bid by the U.S., Canada and Mexico won the right
to host the 2026 games, beating Morocco 134-65. There have been concerns about the president’s
travel ban. President Trump
has sent three letters to FIFA, assuring officials that
foreign teams and their fans will be able to travel
to the United States if North America is chosen. Okay. Quick question: why is Trump promising
he’ll allow people to come to the United States
in 2026? Because even if he won
a second term, he’d be done in 2025. That’s some dictator-level
confidence right there. Just like,
“Don’t worry. In 2026, I’ll allow you all
to come into my country.” It’s like, “But you won’t be
president then.” “That’s what you think.” And, you know, when you think
about it, this makes sense. Soccer is definitely the sport
for Donald Trump. Yeah, it’s the only sport
that involves building walls, and he’d be great at soccer because he’s been
faking injuries since Vietnam. -He’d love it.
-(laughter) -“Oh, I can’t play.
-(cheering and applause) “Aah, aah! My heel spurs.” But that’s right,
America has won the bid to host the FIFA World Cup. And it’s just funny
how a few years ago, Americans were like,
“FIFA’s a corrupt organization “that can’t be…
What? We won the bid?” ♪ We won the bid,
we won the bid ♪ ♪ FIFA’s normal now,
we won the bid. ♪ And you know what is surreal is that when the United States,
Canada and Mexico started bidding
for the World Cup, the three countries
were friends. But now the way things
are going, by the time
the 2026 World Cup starts, fans are gonna be running
through war zones to get to games. They’ll be like, “Goal!” And you know what?
I’m not gonna lie. I-I could spend a lot of time
talking about the World Cup, but this is America,
so I know we’ve got to move on. Uh, which I guess is something I bet Bill Clinton wishes
the media would do, too. Former president Bill Clinton
still out promoting his new book and still having trouble
answering questions about the #MeToo movement. I think the norms have
really changed in terms of… what you can do to somebody
against their will, how much you can crowd
their space, make them miserable at work. Former president Bill Clinton
is in the news tonight, facing a new firestorm
for his answers in an interview
in this #MeToo era. He was asked whether he owes
Monica Lewinsky an apology. -Do you feel like you owe her
an apology? -No. I do… I-I-I never talk to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion
that I was sorry. Someone should ask you
these questions because of the way
you formulate the questions. What? That is one
of the weirdest moments I’ve ever seen in an interview. He just flipped it and asked the journalist
the question. Like, I wish O.J.
had done that in his trial. “Why don’t you try the glove?” (gasps) “It fits.” And by the way,
his new book is called The President is Missing. And at this point, it sounds
less like a mystery novel and more like his fantasy. It’s like, “Mr. President, “we’ve got
some additional questions about Monica Lewinsky.” (imitates explosion)
“Where’d he go? “Where’d he go? The president is missing.” You know who
I really feel bad for? President Clinton’s coauthor,
James Paterson. Yeah. Think about it.
Think about it. That poor dude just wanted
to promote a book, but now he has to sit there
quietly through every interview and watch the disaster unfold. And the look on his face
in every interview– well, just see for yourself. Looking back
on what happened then through the lens of #MeToo now, do you…
do you think differently? No, I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it. -Did you ever apologize to her?
-No, yes. You typically
have ignored gaping facts. This was litigated 20 years ago. Two-thirds of the American
people sided with me against the current occupant
of the Oval Office. I think the norms
have really changed. You don’t have to
physically assault somebody to make them,
you know, uncomfortable at work or at at home. -That’s all I have to say.
-Got it. Okay. Thank you.
Thank you, Mr. President.

  1. Trump talk get again. And here tmhe was bashing the righties for endlessly bashing Obama. Welp you are what you hate.

  2. F–king Bill Clinton…
    I'm starting to realise that everyone who has ever been famous has never been anything but a massive attention wh-re…
    "Look at me! I'm saying something obnoxious!" Yuck.

  3. So if these three countries host the world cup, who then will receive the automatic qualification for the Cup

  4. Trevor Noah is the Rachel Maddow of his retarded prejudice skit..smh

    MAGA 4 LIFE !!! President Trump keeps winning and the left keep whining!

  5. Clinton does not owe Monica an apology, he owe his wife and apology and so does Monica. it's her fake friend Linda tripp who owes her an apology

  6. That Nike money comment I thought was directed towards me because a few years ago I brought up Nike pays less to manufacture their shoes than arguably ever before and yet their prices are higher than they have ever been it's an example of where big business priorities are if it were up to popular vote dems would have won the last 7 presidential elections. I've started questioning the stability of our country behind the sc3nes

  7. If I had my way non profits would crash wall street and I wouldn't have to listen to people bitch about the double standards of free money

  8. Why are they even asking about Monica Lewinski after all of these years? She wasn’t a victim. She was a woman who slept with the president, knew it was wrong, and kept the dirty dress so she could use it after. That’s not a victim. That’s a gold digger looking for 15 minutes of fame. Bill doesn’t owe her an apology at all.

  9. Understand about the whole Monica Lewinsky thing is why Bill Clinton would owe her an apology. It was consensual sex between two adults and it didn't become anything other than that until this #metoo movement started and now all of a sudden she's a victim. And make no mistake about this woman since this me to move in and started she's already came out with two books about her struggle and how hard it was for her being a housekeeper who suck Bill Clinton's cock and she went on to become a New York Times bestselling author and a multi-millionaire all because of one blow job. I'm sorry if anybody had looked at that information unpolitically then you stop and ask yourself this what type of woman would suck a man off voluntarily let him come on her dress and keep the dress for 9 months, it sounds to me one way or another this broad was about to become famous and she had a plan it just got blown up before she got the jump but she still profited wildly and if it weren't for that blow job she would still be a damn housekeeper instead of getting chauffeured around in a Maybach. Tell me one woman in America that wouldn't trade positions with her

  10. nothing like American mergers to destroy all competition and force us to pay one company for everything while they raise prices and decrease service quality.

    another day of America getting WORSE

  11. i am an african but i don't like the way you always on the offensive. u don't know trump man. be easy, don't be much of a hater. u sound like the watchdogs that report about our countries. i doubt u bro… trump is done some good stuff and u talked ill about it. i dont trust yo shit..

  12. I don't follow this stuff, but did Clinton really say it like this? Like, was it taken out of context? Or is the man really that morally depraved?

  13. Both the Clintons just seem incapable of really coming to terms with things that they've done wrong. He can play act it, later, and she, well, she isn't as bad as him, but she never could answer the "emails" accusations.

  14. So if you ask a lady for a blow job and she says yes that's sexual assault and abuse, guys better start masturbating.

  15. I disagree with the people saying liberals are pushing the #metoo movement too far, and I ESPECIALLY disagree with the people who say the MOVEMENT is a "fad", since I myself am a victim. I cannot, however, offer in my mind a "valid" opinion seeing as I was not alive at the time. Whether it was consensual or not, the fact that he infamously said "I did not sleep with that woman" and is still struggling to answer questions about it (like 20 years later) proves that either he feels no remorse (which is terrible) for the entire situation and thinks it all should be swept under the rug, or that he's still hiding things. Point being: it's sus as fuck.
    James Patterson gave a good response when Stephen asked about it on the Late Show. He said Bill has done many nice things, and while there is the mistake that he made, working on the book with him has let him see the many sides of him. I agree that the Clintons do many things like any other person, but that doesn't mean that you're not going to be "known for" what you're known for, so you have no right to get cross with interviewers. You definitely shouldn't be struggling to answer questions about an incident that was already extensively covered. That's suspicious.

  16. James Patterson’s face though…😂
    I feel sorry for him cause I really enjoy his books and it’s a shame he has to be caught up in this hot mess.

  17. Oh, the media. They constantly hype up Clintons. Remember the last election, oh, Hillary.

    Go ask the current president these questions.

  18. Mr. Clinton don't have to apologize to the whoring Lewinsky. he did apologize many years ago. she was using her body for higher position.

  19. Me too movement, need to find something better to do with their whoring life with their bosses, CEO and promotion. where they use their body to get promoted for jobs . and now calling for sexually assaulted.. bloody liars.

  20. Oh Trevor, you missed an opportunity to promote John Oliver's segment on corporate consolidation… 😀

  21. Can you imagine being the woman in this case. I am glad this is following him. They are still making propaganda tshirts disrespecting Monica defining her by one sexual affair. I am glad these men are finally feeling it. She has had to endure this for years and Hillary too. They ask him more about Monica than his own wife. Smh yeaaaaa #TimesUp

  22. North-America hosting soccer? That's a bad decision. Just to remember… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlJEt2KU33I
    And… BTW: In my opinion… #metoo is just another feminism bullshit, like a witch hunt… Every stupid bitch would now just call #metoo …

  23. My dad reads a looot of James Patterson books so I'm sure he's a brilliant and very accomplished author
    So I feel so bad he has to put up with this nonsense 😂

  24. You know what, I do not think Clinton have to apologized to Monica Lewinsky. She was an adult, she knew what she was doing. She is not a victim, I am pretty sure she was flattened to have an affair with the president of the US.
    I also hopped people stop trying to see all women in the ME to Movement as victims. Before said something do some search on the past of the some so called victims. Some are some not.
    I feel really sorry and sad for those that really were abused.

  25. I was about to say something strange about this video but I don't want the US government breaking down my door and arresting me so I'm going to keep my mouth shut you don't know who's watching

  26. But I tell you one thing that guy sitting next to Bill is the most interesting person ever and he probably made the entire interview more better than Bill talking

  27. This whole Trump presidency is so entertaining like they turned the white house into a comedy club. I feel bad for The 46th president shit he got hella work to do😅😅

  28. Wow. Still using Bill Clinton as a punching bag for a bunch of consensual stuff he did over 15 years ago as president. Who the fuck cares. He was one of the best presidents we ever had.

  29. How dare you, you confused and excited me, and then said the u.s. DIDN'T win the world cup. that shit never happens and I love soccer. Although if the world fought the u.s. and canada at hockey few would come out alive. FIGHT ME.

  30. I can’t wait til there is a liberal or non-republican in the White House so that when conservatives try to open their mouths about sexual assault (which I sincerely hope no more rapists enter that Oval Office) and marital drama and oppression we have all the video footage and evidence of shit trump did and got away with.

  31. And I love how we can harass bill Clinton (rightfully) after he has already been forced to trial, but no one is prosecuting the current Cheeto in chief.

  32. People just need to own up to there mistakes. Say yeah I fucked up…wat can I do better to change it. Wrapped in lies will only get ya so far. Own them mistakes n try to do better. Everyday is a blessing.
    Have A Blessed Day

  33. Okay wtf? Bill is still getting crap about a hummer and Trump is 99.99999(infinite) guilty of multiple pornstars (who he paid so techincally they were prostitutes)? Ah haa.. see question mark? I was asking! 😀

  34. When you think about it, this guy is just talking to himself in front of a camera while someone else times in a laugh track.

  35. Did he just said: "I think things change about what you can do to somebody without their consent"
    NO IT DIDN'T CHANGE BUT NOW WE CAN SAY SOMETHING WITHOUT GOING TO PRISON' LOOSING OUR JOB' BEING ACCUSED OF WHATEVER, ETC.
