Trump and Fox News’s Caravan Hysteria Reaches a Fever Pitch | The Daily Show


Can I just say that I am loving everything
about this city. It is my first time here
spending time, and I am loving everything
about it. Like, every day
is a party in Miami. Like, every day. It doesn’t matter where you go. I went to a church service
the other day, and they didn’t have a choir–
they had a deejay. It was the dopest thing.
It was like… ♪ Do unto others, others,
others, others… ♪ (song escalating) ♪ Jesus died for your sins. ♪ (mimicking dance beat) We were praying
until 6:00 in the morning. (laughter, whooping) Glad we prayed. And I don’t know
if it’s just me, but I-I feel like–
I feel like everybody out here is excited about the midterms. You guys excited? Yeah? (cheering and applause) You can feel that energy. You know, uh– you know
who else is, uh, really excited? Donald Trump. (booing) Oh, wow. Wow. You guys sound
like a roomful of Melanias. Wow. Anyway, just-just like you, uh, President Trump knows
that the midterms are only seven days away. And so, to motivate his voters, right, he’s-he’s doing something
really special. Well, it’s the thing
that he does best. He’s scaring the shit out
of his voters, all right, specifically
by using brown people. It’s sort of like Halloween but
a racist Halloween, you know? Or as Megyn Kelly calls it,
Halloween. And, uh… and so, every day,
Trump’s number one focus has been the caravan. I don’t know
if you’ve seen this. And if you don’t know,
the caravan is basically a group
of a few thousand people who are walking
to the United States from impoverished
and crime-ridden countries like Honduras and Guatemala, and they’re walking to the U.S.
partly as a protest and partly to apply for asylum
and a better life. And-and it’s a tough journey. They’ve got no food,
they’ve got no water, there’s nowhere to bathe. It’s basically like Burning Man, except the people
aren’t pretending to be poor, you know what I’m saying? Like, it’s-it’s a group
of people who are saying to America,
“Hey, we’re in trouble. Can you help us?” And Trump has responded
with this. The U.S. military said today
it’s sending more than 5,000
active duty troops to the Mexican border
to deal with a caravan of Central Americans
who intend to seek asylum here. WOMAN: Those 5,200 troops
actually outnumbering the roughly 4,000 migrants
making up that caravan, and nearly equaling
the number of U.S. personnel fighting ISIS in Iraq. -Really?
-(booing) Trump is sending the same amount
of troops to deal with asylum seekers
as he sent to fight ISIS? Like, that has got to be
so weird for the troops. It will be one guy talking
to another is like, “I’m headed “to Iraq
to stop a violent death cult from destroying civilization.
Where are you going?” It’s like, “Oh, I’m going
to try to convince a baby to crawl south, yeah,
just switch around.” And you know what’s even worse is that Trump is sending
more troops than there are migrants, right? So the troops can basically play
man-on-man defense, you know? Just like, “Okay, you get Juan,
I’ll get Jose. “I’ll take the old lady.
Come on, come on, Abuela. “Come on, Abuela.
Come on, come on. Aah, she got through my legs!
Goddamn it, Abuela!” (cheers and applause) Are you gonna send more? And now, and now, just-just so
we’re on the same page– these people aren’t illegal
anything, right? They’re planning
to apply for asylum once they get
to the U.S. border, right? It’s not like they’re just gonna
rush across the border like a giant game of red rover.
That’s not what’s gonna happen. Although, that would be super
dope. Can we admit -that that would be super dope?
Yeah. -(applause) Like, in fact,
instead of having a border wall, America should have the troops
holding hands at the border. Right?
And then the immigrants run, and if they break through,
you get citizenship. -I think that’s a fair game.
-(applause and cheering) I’m watching that show! I don’t know about you,
but I’m watching that show. “This summer on NBC, it’s Red Rover:
Citizenship Edition.” ‘Cause I’m sorry.
This is just ridiculous. Instead of sending 5,000 troops
to the border, why not send 5,000 judges
and lawyers to help with the asylum process?
Why send the troops? (cheers and applause) Anything would make more sense
than sending 5,000 troops. Like,
it would even make more sense if Trump was just like,
“You know what? “America is just gonna
turn off the lights and pretend no one is home.”
That would even make more sense. Just like,
“Shh. Everyone, be quiet!” Although, you know
Trump would mess that up. Everyone would be quiet, and
he’d be like, “We’re not here!” (laughter) “Mike Pence told me
to say we’re not here!” And now, I think the reason
Donald Trump is sending troops to these asylum seekers instead
of help is because, in his mind, this is an invasion, and when I say “in his mind,”
what I mean is on Fox News. Thousands upon thousands of
migrants literally marching to the U.S.
in what would be a mass invasion in order to demand entry. This migrant caravan– it’s not
a caravan, it’s an invasion. Here is a mob of humanity driving towards
the U.S. Southern border. This looks a lot like
an invasion. -It’s an actual invasion.
-An invasion. Thousands and thousands
of people on the bridge. When you looked at that bridge
loaded up with people, that’s called an invasion
of our country. Really, an invasion? Get the (bleep) out of here,
man! An invasion? (cheers and applause) Let me ask you this.
Let me ask you this. Let me ask you this. What kind of invaders apply
to come in and give their enemy
three-months warning? Yeah, what kind
of invasion is that? Like, I missed the history class
where Paul Revere was like, “The British are coming! “But not until, like,
April, okay? “King George just wanted me
to tell you guys in advance ’cause he knows you guys are,
like, super busy, okay?” And like… here’s my problem. (applause and cheering) Here’s my problem. Here’s my problem
with all the fearmongering. My big problem
with the fearmongering about this caravan is that Trump and his friends–
they don’t even seem to know what they’re afraid of. And they’re coming with diseases
such as small pox and leprosy and TB, that are gonna affect
our people in the United States. The overwhelming majority are
young men in their twenties. They’re strapping,
they’re strong. WOMAN: We got HIV, measles,
pertussis, rubella, rabies, hepatitis A, influenza,
TB, shigellosis, syphilis. When you look at that caravan and you look…
of largely very, you know, big percentage of men, young, strong,
a lot of bad people. -(laughter)
-That’s right. These migrants
are both super strong and riddled with disease. These are the strongest lepers
I’ve ever seen! (laughter, applause, whistling) They’re just coming
across the border… their jacked arms falling off
in the streets. (laughter) Make up your mind. And honestly, honestly,
if I were the migrants, I would be worried
about catching one of America’s weird diseases. Have you seen the shit
people have in this country? If I was a migrant,
I’d be like, (Latino accent):
“Hey, man, I want a better life, “but I don’t know about America. “I don’t want to catch
a gluten intolerance, man. -(laughter) -“You hear they have
irritable bowel syndrome “up there, man? “I had a cousin who went there. “Two months later,
he had restless leg syndrome. You can’t cure that shit.” -And now…
-(applause, cheering, whistling) And now, I know… I know some of you right now
are asking me, you’re going, “Trevor, why do you even bother
with Fox News? “You know who they are. “They’re always bringing…
they’re bringing xenophobia, they’re bringing racism,”
and that’s true. That is true.
But here’s the thing, I assume that some of them
are good people. -(laughter) -Because
even though this network might seem like one giant
caravan of dangerous extremists, I believe there are people
in there who mean well. The migrants, according
to Fox News reporting, are more than two months away, if any of them
actually come here. But tomorrow is one week
before the midterm election, which is what
all of this is about. There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There’s nothing at all
to worry about. We’re America–
we can handle it. -(applause) -Now, that’s
a guy who deserves asylum.

  1. Rabies??! People that contract rabies die. There is no cure. The last thing they'd be able to do is walk. Like anywhere. I guess they're gonna snatch their life support tubes out and join the Caravan. Omigod Trump stop. Just stop. ffs

  2. It’s crazy how México is willing to help a caravan of migrants and not there own indigenous people who are living in poverty

  3. Rupert Murdoch, Sinclair Media, and Fox News all need to be prosecuted as criminals for acting like RTLM in Rwanda
    If a single person is shot by the military on the border or on the streets of the U.S. they all need to be condemned for their participation. This is not up for debate.

  4. THE CARAVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

  5. Peru, Ecuador and Colombia, Chile, Argentina, received in this year more than 2'500,000 venezuelan, this countries are not in condition to received many inmigrants, but they were welcomed. They can not live under Maduro regime no more; the exodus of this hungry, malnutrition people was no to be believe, they left Venezuela walking they crossed Colombia (1'000.000 venezuelan stop there) to reach Ecuador (500,000 venezuelan) and they crossed Colombia, Ecuador to be in Perú (540,000 venezuelan)…the rest are en Chile and Argentina. Trump complaints are ridiculous, for only for 7,000 ?… I think they walking in wrong direction… sorry (English is not my first language)

  6. Hey Don, a white caravan from Europe is coming to U.S. be prepared with your most destructive weapons. Poor Don he is going crazy.

  7. Army deployed, with fences… : 200.000.000$
    There is only 4.000 people, so trump payed to block poor people, with a budget of 50.000$/person

    Wtf !

  8. Get ready for some gangs, violence, tuberculosis, paying for their health insurance, housing, free education, welfare etc. Ya all get to work for these poor people who are victims, yeah right now one believes this scam.😂🤣

  9. If it is so dangerous back in their home country then why did they leave all the women and children there? If we did send more support like judges and what not to get more support for these caravan to get in. What message does that send the other 4 BILLION IN POVERTY in this world that would love to be in a caravan. My heart does go out to them how ever we can't be the dumping grounds. We need secured borders and we have to have limits on how many we let in! Also why dont we make tent cities for our homeless and vets?

  10. Thats a biblical level test for a country. You get a chance to help 4000 people walking into a country looking for a safe place to live. In God WE Trust is definitely on American money just not in American hearts.

  11. "Strong and strapping"

    Holy hell, I gotta get down there. Strong AND strapping and many of them? Gotta get down there, dude

  12. hello… Pastor… you are a one sided… this CARAVAN of an Immigrant is organized… yes.. there are LAWS to follow…but in this case.. this is not right and fair for the American people… and sometimes needs to change the LAWS… this is a "TRUE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION OF THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN"…they must provide the basic needs of their citizens… WHY THEY SHOULD DEPEND THEIR DINNER PASTURE TO AMERICA? go back to your country… fight for your right…you can protest peacefully… " A People Power Revolution"… How about the UN..ICC…IHR??? what's the use of these?

  13. The caravan migrants have publically announced that they plan to overhelm the border control with numbers and storm our border forcibly. You still think its not an invasion? Tiajuanians are protesting their presence and they have become agressive towards Tiajuanians.

  14. god I would go nuts if I would live in america. I just learned about all that crazy shit that is going on with trump and his actions and I can not believe that many people are blind and only see the good thing that trump does

  15. LMAO laura ingraham talking about all the diseases. Fox news is one big disease except for Shepard Smith. All that fox news is doing is making white people look bad and that we will lie with no bounds to prove our case.

  16. Migrant Caravan Plans Human Stampede
    https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=uh3_answers_web_gs&p=Tijuana+says+Trump+was+right#id=2&vid=0104f27e7027cc3b4621c189dce14567&action=click

  17. When people from your allied countries are fleeing the violence of a major cartel gang war, you don’t lock your doors and turn them away. You grant them asylum and welcome them and give them the opportunity to follow a legal path to citizenship. How do people think we built this fucking country in the first place? The best people we have were refugees fleeing an unjust oppressive government, or slaves dragged here from another continent forcably. You want America to be great? Don’t remove it’s soul and heart.

  18. So pathetic, that there are people, including 90+ percent of the anti-American news media, that thinks it is ok for the "caravan" to be making demands on America, that they be able to enter our country.      They have NO right to be in America, unless they follow our rules of entry.   Noah,  go  to hell with the rest of your leftist, anti-white, anti-America enemies who hate-European descended people.

  19. why are they talking abot these people as if they were zombies? " they are gonna "INFECT US ALL"? really? this is beyond the ridiculous!

  20. I thought Mr Trevor promised us the Caravan was months away and all peaceful, innocent women and children?

    Reality Check: Nov 2018 Theyre here and theyre hostile and its mostly men.

  21. Now I ask all of you, what would have happened if Trump had not sent Troops now that we know the migrants planned to charged the border?

  22. Trevor is pure hypocrisy……these caravan people try to even enter the US with the force violating any rule/law…..that is surreal…..hey Trevor, why don't you take the South and central american illegal immigrants in your house ?!?

  23. do you think trevor noah ever feels foolish or shame after he realizes he was completely wrong about his jokes? or do you think he just rationalizes that he was somehow still right so he can continue on with his smug jokes?

  24. "It's not like they're just gonna rush across the border"

    Is it okay for us to laugh at this idiotic and illogical conclusion now?

  25. Treavor: "Its not like theyre just going to rush accross the border like a giant game of red rover".

    Reality: Migrants planned and are now trying to rush accross the border.

  26. First off anyone who trys to smuggle drugs takes the tunnels UNDERGROUND not through the desert second smallpox has been wiped out except in two labs and third Trump needs to realize that these immigrants are human beings and he needs to learn how to treat his fellow humans with dignity and respect

  27. Trump is real shit 💩💀👺👹all those diseases as if they don't exists in America stupid stupid stupid Trump is a bitch

  28. Its amazing how these people help each other just make up their own reality and believe it and still make excuses even after theyre proven wrong.

  29. Why should America let these fucking cunts in america if you are smart you won't let them in the country it's a load a shit the USA will become Germany in a few years i swear

  30. These migrants are not vaccinated and they will bring back to America diseases such as Small Pox, Rabies, and the newly disguised POLIO –
    Boy is this man dumb – you have to stop them before you can have them lawyer up – idiot black man (hey why don't you go back to Africa, I hear they're killing whites; you'd probably love to be in that crowd)

  31. My question is, why didn't the people apply for asylum at US Embassies in their home countries? You can't wait until you're in TJ to do it. And Mexico flat out didn't want them there (in Mexico)

  32. Hmm well the caravan is here and most are snicking in. I live on the Texas Mexico border. Wish they had of left the violence there running from back in their home country.

  33. If they had raives they couldnt even walk …Ísis bomb the fucking fox news…i know they much be spying on my phone for saying this but dont give a fuck you little cunts …Ísis i dont like you but i know you dindt start this… bomb the people that should be bombed.. Trump … Bush ..fox news …rape that bitch Tomy lahren ..and that hannity Son of a bitch… Dont kill inocents …Trump and other are infidels …you have the right to believe in what you. Bilieve has do US ….If all the world start acting like you extrem muslins you wouldnt exist …and i have many muslins friends they are cool they aint terrorists ..but some of the shit you do in your own country like pedophilea rapes and killing girls with stones just because they had sex with someone ..and acting like horny pervets just because a foreigner isnt wearing a bag Over theyr head its stupid …you realize that without woman you are nothing .. without woman we are nothing but flys …respect weman … Kill the ones that made war in your country not inocentes

  34. It's so sad to see the level of illiteracy in this comment section….. even I'm not living in America but I as well as everyone around the world can see how bad Trump is messing things up. What do you need to open your eyes? WW3? Even then some of you would still blame Obama immigrants and black people

  35. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

    You do not care that in Mexico you will be kicked under the ass because you are black. Or, in your understanding, racism exists only in whites?

  36. "Get the FUCK outta here, man."

    So that's what he's been saying on TDS all this time. Glad I finally understand

  37. Try not to read the reply’s to the comments it’s a bunch of ignorant white nationalist saying a bunch of bullshit they got from some Fox new show

  38. during my tour at safeway i realised we throw away enough calories in this country to feed well over 5000 people.
