Votegasm 2020: June Democratic Debates – Night Two | The Daily Show


The second night
of the Democratic debates ended just moments ago,
and we are coming to you live from New York,
ladies and gentlemen! -(cheering, applause)
-From Comedy Central’s World News Headquarters! That’s right,
we are completely live. I can prove it.
This is how I can prove it. You see?
It’s a newspaper. Anyway… Here we are– night two
of the Democratic debates. And there has been so much
excitement around these debates. Basically everybody
has been watching them, and I mean everybody. Hey, Twitter world,
it’s me, yours truly, sitting at my house,
waiting to watch this debate. To hear a bunch of people
who think they’re capable of running our country.
It should be interesting, ’cause, to be honest, I-I don’t
know most of these guys. But I’m interested to hear
what they have to say, and I think every American
should be watching this. So I guess we got
about 38 minutes to go, so, won’t be long now. Take care. Oh, man.
(laughs) Dude, O.J. kills me. AUDIENCE:
Oh! Allegedly. Allegedly. ’Cause I love how…
I love how he just tries to act like he’s a completely normal
guy, right? Because he’s not a normal guy. He’s one of the greatest
running backs of all time. What are you doing?
No, but seriously, though, I found this video
super suspicious. Right? Part of me thinks
O.J. was just doing this to try and set up an alibi,
you know? It’s like, “Mr. Simpson,
we found six dead bodies in your front yard.”
“It couldn’t have been me. “You saw my Twitter post.
I was watching the debates. I saw myself.” And O.J. doesn’t realize
how much power he has, right? Because if he really wanted
to screw a candidate over, you realize all he’d have to do
is endorse them. Yeah? He could just be like,
“I wouldn’t be where I was today “without my brother Cory Booker.
Everything I’ve done was because of you, Cory.” “No!” Now, we don’t know what O.J.
thought of the debates, but we do know
what President Trump thought of them
last night, because he tweeted his
one-word takeaway: “Boring!” And, I mean, yeah,
let’s be honest– everyone is boring,
right, compared to him. Yeah, he’s the craziest dude
on the planet. Asking Trump to weigh in
on normal politicians is like asking heroin
what it thinks of coffee, okay? But he’s not…
and he’s not totally wrong. He’s not totally wrong. Last
night’s debate was fairly civil. And when tonight’s
debate started, it looked like it was
gonna be more of the same. It even began the same. It was the same telenovela
that we started last night. I want to say hello
and good evening, bueno noches to, uh, Mayor, uh, Buttigieg. (Buttigieg and Diaz-Balart
speaking Spanish) Ooh, Mayor Pete
with the Spanish. Ay! You know Beto O’Rourke
was at home going, “Ay, dios mio, these
gringos are stealing my swag.” And I bet wherever Trump was,
he was like, “Can we deport the Democrats?” So it started off the same.
As for the topics, again, it seemed like it was
gonna be more of the same. For instance, on taxes, the Democrats were pretty much
on the same page. We can make massive cuts
in the $1.6 trillion in tax loopholes out there.
And I would be going about eliminating Donald Trump’s
tax cuts for the wealthy. On day one I will repeal
that tax bill that benefits the top one percent and the
biggest corporations in America. Will you raise taxes
for the middle class in a Sanders administration? Yes, they will
pay more in taxes. Wow. Yeah. Bernie just said he’s gonna
raise taxes on the middle class. At a debate.
That’s not a popular opinion. And that’s why I keep
giving props to Bernie Sanders. He keeps it real. Right? A lot of politicians,
like, they would lie. They’d be like,
“Oh, no, I wo…” And then they would raise it.
But he gives it to you straight, which is great for a politician.
Horrible for a doctor. Can you imagine Bernie–
he’d just come out and be like, “Your grandpa’s not gonna make
it. The cancer’s got his balls. “You might as well
say bye-bye right now. “Bye-bye. It’s over.” And just like yesterday,
everyone was waiting to see if the unknowns would shock us
with something that they said. But it turned out today
the unknowns were shocked when they got a chance to speak. -Senator Bennet,
-(cheering) you have said, “It’s possible
to write policy proposals “that have no basis in reality. You might as well
call them candy.” Were you referring
to any candidate or proposal in particular
when you said that? -Was that directed to me?
-Yes, that was your quote. Oh, thank you.
That sounded like me. -Thank you. I appreciate it.
-It was you. (laughs) -Oh, that was so adorable.
-(laughter) No, because, like,
he’s genuinely shocked that they said his name.
He was like, “Was that for me? Was that…? (guffaws)” ’Cause that’s the first time
this has happened the whole campaign.
You realize that? Yeah, he’s like,
“Wait, you guys can see me? -“You guys…?
-(laughter) I thought this whole time I was
Bernie’s imaginary friend.” Now, one of the big topics
tonight was health care. And the Democrats are aligned but they have a range
of opinions. It went all the way from
Medicare for all, right, with no private insurance to whatever Marianne Williamson
was talking about. Where tens of millions of people
are prepared to stand up and tell the insurance companies
and the drug companies that their day is gone, that health care
is a human right, not something to make huge
profits off of. I’m against any Democrat who
opposes, takes down Obamacare and any Republican who wants
to get rid of Obamacare. HOLT:
Let me-let me turn to… We have to have
a health care guarantee, if you’re sick, you’re seen, and in America, you never
go broke because of it. I’ll tell you one thing, it’s really nice that we’ve got
all these plans, but if you think we’re going
to beat Donald Trump by just having all these plans, you got another thing coming. Because he didn’t win
by saying he had a plan. He won by simply saying,
“Make America great again.” Uh… what? (laughter) That’s a pretty bold move
for a candidate to say, “I’m anti-plan, okay?” Like her vibe, I was just
waiting for, at some point, to be like, “We don’t need
a plan, my friends. “Just give me one vial
of CBD oil and our chakras
will be aligned.” (applause, cheering) So at this point,
night two seemed fairly chilled but it didn’t take long
for people to remember that this is a race. Because we’ll stop the greed
of the insurance companies -and the drug companies.
-(overlapping talking) -On this issue we have
to think about -One at a time. -how this affects real people.
-(overlapping) -Senator. -Cures for all. And today…
-And the reality… …a $5,000 deductible when
they walk through those doors. Senator, Senator Harris,
thank you. That’s what insurance companies
are doing -in America today.
-(overlapping) GUTHRIE: We’re going
to continue this discussion. I wanted to put it in… -(overlapping talking)
-Candidates, please. Candidates, please. -(overlapping talking)
-As part of… As part of Joe’s generation… As part of Joe’s generation–
let me respond… -Before we move on from…
-The issue, if I may say… -Before we move on from
education. -is not generational. -DIAZ-BALART: Please, please.
-The issue is not generational. WILLIAMSON: We forgive you for
your young and immature comment. The issue is who has the guts
to take on Wall Street… Bernie! Who is dumb enough to engage
with Bernie in a shouting match? (laughter) You realize there were
ten people on stage shouting, and the moderators,
and he outshouts them all. Yeah, he’s like, “That’s right. And just wait until
I turn on my mike.” (laughter) So, things were really starting
to heat up. But the action of the night, the thing everybody is going
to be talking about really started when Eric
Swalwell took the first shot at frontrunner Sleepy Joe. I was six years old
when a presidential candidate came to the California
Democratic Convention and said it’s time
to pass the torch to a new generation
of Americans. That candidate
was then Senator Joe Biden. Joe Biden was right when he said
it was time to pass the torch to a new generation
of Americans 32 years ago. He’s still right today. If we’re going to solve
the issues of automation, pass the torch. If we’re going to solve
the issues climate chaos, pass the torch. If we’re going to solve
the issue of student loan debt, pass the torch. If we’re going
to end gun violence for families who are fearful
of sending their kids to school, pass the torch. Vice President, would you like
to sing a torch song? -I would.
-(laughter) I’m still holding on
to that torch. That’s right, Biden is not
letting go of that torch. Even though that torch
is really uncomfortable and told Biden that it does not
like the way that he’s holding onto it, he’s holding on to that torch. Oh, and just by the way, it was really funny ’cause
Swalwell tried to use the same torch line on Bernie
later in the debate which totally failed, right, ’cause it’s not going to work
on Bernie the same way. How you going to tell him
to let go of the torch, when he invented fire. It is not the same thing. (applause and cheering) Now, I don’t know
if it was Swalwell, but the sharks could just
smell blood in the water. All I know is,
Biden had a target on his back. And the way it started, didn’t
even come from him, right? It didn’t come from him,
it didn’t come from Swalwell. No. Marianne Williamson–
she was endorsing reparations. She was talking about race,
and Kamala Harris was like, “Uh, the the rest of you need
to sit your asses down.” (applause and cheering) I do not believe…
I do not believe that the average American
is a racist. But the average American
is woefully undereducated about the history of race
in the United States. -(overlapping chatter) -Vice
President Biden, I’m gonna… We’re gonna get to you.
Hang on. We’re gonna get… HARRIS: As the only black person
on this stage, -I… I-I… -…I would like
to speak on the issue of race. -Wow! Wow!
-(applause and cheering) Yeah! MAN:
Yeah! You know, people always
accuse black people of playing the race card,
but that was the right time to use the race card, yeah. And by the way,
for those asking, the race card is
a real card, yes. I had one, too,
but I used it already to get a free Jamba Juice. Like, we have it
for different reasons. So the issue of race had now
been brought up at the debates. And you might remember
Biden had some problems with that last week
when he seemed to be pro the relationships
with segregationists and talking about
how they were good people. So now
that Kamala had the floor, she was gonna wipe it
with Biden. I’m going to now direct this
at Vice President Biden. Um, I do not believe
you are a racist. And I agree with you
when you commit yourself -to the importance of
finding common ground. -Mm-hmm. But I also believe, and it’s personal,
and I was actually very… It was hurtful to hear you talk
about the reputations of two United State senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation
of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And you know, there was
a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused
to school every day. And that little girl was me. Holy shit! (laughter, applause,
cheering, whooping) She just pulled
an M. Night Shyamalan. (laughter) She was black the whole movie! (laughter, applause) I didn’t see that coming.
Did you see that coming? That moment was so brutal
on Joe Biden, for the first time
I wanted to give him a massage. (laughter) And it didn’t get any better
from there. Do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose
busing in America then? -No…
-Do you agree? I did not oppose busing
in America. What I opposed is busing ordered
by the Department of Education. That’s what I opposed. -I did not oppose…
-Well, there was a failure -of-of states to integrate…
-No, but… …public schools in America.
I was part of the second class to integrate
Berkeley, California public schools
almost two decades after
Brown v. Board of Education. Because your city council
made that decision. -It was a local decision.
-So that’s where the federal government
must step in. -Now, the federal government…
-That’s why we have the Voting Rights Act
and the Civil Rights Act. That’s why we need
to pass the Equality Act. That’s why we need
to pass the ERA, because -That’s what…
-…there are moments in history where states fail to preserve
the civil rights of all people. I have support… Isn’t this the part
where someone’s supposed to throw in a towel?
Isn’t that how this works? Yo, because, at this point, Kamala was busing Biden
right out of the debate. -(laughter)
-She was killing it. Everything she said made sense. She was connecting
with the crowd. She had ’em. And Biden, like, he…
he seemed like he was angry, he wasn’t looking at her,
he wasn’t connecting. I didn’t even know if he was,
like, messed up in his mind. All I know is… all I know is
Biden wasn’t having a good time. Seriously, Biden hasn’t had
such an intense standoff with a black woman
since Michelle caught him sneaking a Big Mac to Barack. This hasn’t happened to him
in a long time. And that moment there
with Kamala– that’s why you have
to love black women. -Yeah. You have to love them.
-(cheering, whooping, applause) You think
they’ve forgotten what you did. (laughter) And out nowhere,
they will spring that shit. My mom would do that shit to me
all the time. She’d be like,
“Trevor, you remember that food -you stole in 1991?”
-I’d be like, “No, Mommy!” (laughter, applause) And you could tell
Biden was pissed. You could tell
that he was shook. You could tell… that this had become
Kamala Harris’s night. Because Joe Biden did something that no one on that debate stage
has ever done: he cut himself off. I’m the guy that extended the
Voting Rights Act for 25 years. We got to the place
where we got 98 out of 98 votes in the United States Senate
doing it. I’ve also argued very strongly
that we, in fact, deal with the notion of denying
people access to the ballot box. I agreed that
everybody wants to, in fact… Anyway, my time’s up. I’m sorry. MODERATOR:
Thank you, Vice President. Yeah. After Kamala did, uh,
what she did to you tonight, Joe Biden, uh,
your time might be up. -We’ll be right back.
-(audience groans) (cheering)




Comments
  1. The only people who think Kamala Harris scored some big points with her ridiculous attack against Biden are completely ignorant of the busing issue. Her attack didn’t even make sense. Mentioning names of other men who used to be in the senate hurt her feelings??! Biden didn’t agree with Eastland’s segregationist views. Any honest person knows this. This kind of race baiting crap will not work in the general election. Harris is an inauthentic cynical opportunist. I don’t understand why the democrats are acting like such morons. I don’t want Trump re-elected and the dems are basically assuring that result. What’s the platform? Reparations, free healthcare for illegal immigrants and federally mandated busing?

  2. People are claping so hard for Kamala. I didn't know her, but after watch some old clips, why the fuck you claping for her? ahah

  3. American elections are so crazy, you start the campains two years before the election and then complain that your Parliament get into a PR gridlock and does not get shit done.

    Here in Germany campaining starts only a few months before the election and partys are not allowed to run ads or put up billboards untill six weeks before the vote.

  4. Kamala doesn't have a black agenda. So she used her race card to I interrupt the only candidate who actually had a black agenda.

  5. I think when you make those Mexican overacted voices all the time, you are also being racist. And affects all Latinos in general. (since US people think we all latinos speak and act the same way) I love the show BTW. Just don't help us that way…

  6. Damn, they actually muted Andrew Yang’s mic and got caught lying about it. All because he’s not falling victim to the Left vs Right bullshit. So I guess I’ma support Andrew Yang now, they call it “YangGang” and I fuck with the that.

  7. How about EVERYONE pays an equal percentage in income taxes… Even the lower class. Everyone. That's fair.

  8. Kamala Harris speaks from her heart – it’s so refreshing – I was so surprised to hear a politician speak like that

  9. Why women like kamala think if they yelling that means their in right position, just stupid bastards yelling when talking

  10. Kamala isn't BLACK…..she's of Jamaican/Indian ethnicity. But, she will get the majority of the black American vote by claiming it. She is articulate, young and fairly attractive.

  11. Isn't Kamala Harris mixed? Why do people only refer to her as black then? I mean I'm not trying to offend anyone but I just don't understand how race classifying in America works. Like if you're mixed with black and white, you're considered mixed but if you're mixed with black and brown, it's black? Is there a pattern or something? like, I'm genuinely confused.

  12. Woman trying to talk over everyone even in politics, ladys when every body is talking we can't hear you!

  13. Kamala is not black. Why is she fighting for busing? She is so problematic. She may be loud on stage but that does not make her a good option for president. Busing is not an issue on the table. Why is it in the debate?

  14. Please Don't take away our best comedian prez trump…lets not vote anymore and keep him there for life, his life!?

  15. Medicare for all is a wonderful idea – I certainly benefit from Medicaid for me – but watching this Real Lives documentary about a triple amputee, Britain's public healthcare seems kinda… half-assed. What the hell kind of skin graft is that? It makes me understand the importance of choice with your medical issues.

  18. The best cure for any illness, disease, or sickness is prevention.  That starts with clean air, water,  high nutritional value foods, supplements, and   organic GMO free would be best+ A decent workout regiment.  The best chance at a full recovery from any type of injury is with that same exact type of commitment.  In layman's terms people need to do what they can at home at the same time doctors need to start curing illnesses instead of just treating symptoms.                      Equally as important if not more. People need to know we cannot promote life by doing business with material, resources, and substances that have been scientifically classified and religiously verified as petrified death or worse which all come from coal, oil, gas, and the chemical industry.  Better known as dirty, low-paying jobs that come from outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides, and chemicals that never change their killing composition which means simpleton whether it is a solid, liquid, or burnt off in to our airways and atmosphere as a vapor  is always going to be poisonous, debilitating, and deadly to the body, at the same time polluting, corrupting, and devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. In layman's terms there is no profit to be made in the demise of the planet'  thanks to dirty low-paying jobs keeping the mass majority of the population overworked, underpaid, soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, and undernourished.                      We are facing financial and environmental global collapse.  Which has resulted in today's people more so here in America living and dying to a diminished quality of life which unfortunately yields a spiritual kickback that has very little value if any at all. At the same time the mass majority of the population is living and dying off having only used the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential they were first born with. You might want to learn about these facts if not out of the kindness of your heart, due to the simple common sense and logic of if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper it's not I guarantee.                    Fortunately we have the manpower, technology, capabilities, and resources to offset compensate for this desperate weakness that has been   whining  across the landscapes throughout the history of mankind thanks to people like Donald Trump.  The good news is when America got his first phony president.  I realized how souls and spirits have paid out and are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs.  It is truly uplifting to be able to remember that I witnessed observed on the way back to my body from death as a man child  how souls and spirits have been are being managed directly maintained and implemented with all the disease, sickness, illness, pain, suffering, torment, and misery of used, neglect, and hunger that has been allowed to occur manifesting throughout the ages into what it is today thanks to people like Donald Trump.        Today's people more so here in America!  Have demonstrated, confirmed, and signified why their souls and spirits are functioning similar to an air purifier, water filtration system, steam cleaner, sponge shield tourniquet rubber gloves, bedpan urinal,  ass wipes blowup doll punching bag recycling bin so forth and so on etc. etc. and that is the short list.  Laugh smile grin chuckle I say with absolute confidence Now I wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim I guarantee you never see  hear   another body, manning power persons of legal religious authority leaders ever  nationally vnaturally   validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty.              One reason they don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs! At Heart  another reason could be they come from a breed of cowards or simply have a lifestyle that suggest confirms and validates them as being feebleminded and physically inadequate submissive subservient it doesn't get any worse than that. for that cowardice desperation  Positively indicates means one is spiritually sexually suppressed internally and externally for all eternity throughout existence case closed mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare are not changing those facts. Protecting carrying compensating any souls or spirits that are freely connected to a life that does not do its best to improve upon and maintain the quality of it.   For the goal is to naturally become physically fit, mentally sound, and spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom. Which is the common basic average normal way for   one to live up to the pleasure potential responsibility of femininity and masculinity + to validate confirm signified  that they are being true towards love, honor, and the creation of life. SRF

  19. how many little girls and boys nowadays go to school and never come home because of gun violence. it is   unfortunate black people act like they put an end to slavery in this country and there wasn't  any white people who lived fought became partially or completely combination of both paralyzed dying on the battlefield to free a group of people that did not have the same skin tone. I know many black people have it legally worse in this country compared to white people like Donald Trump however there is many able-bodied black people that have more physical freedom than disabled white people.  seriously if we are going  to talk about slavery we need to talk about where it originated  which group had it the worst and why.   example of the Roman Empire had slavery for thousands of years. How were some of these slaves treated the were made to walk underground in something similar to a hamster wheel which was designed to keep Coals burning so the people above ground may have hot water. Life expectancy for those slaves two years   Even enslaving their own people how many countries throughout the history of time enslave their own people I know Africa was one of them. Today's Americans don't know things like that.  if any people in this country have a right to be upset about racism discrimination its Native Americans.  And if there is any people in this world who have had it the worst throughout the history of time all the way to current today.  It's disabled  people.  Infant babies born addicted to drugs alcohol.  In this country of America there is a baby born every hour upon the hour of every day all year long in this country of America addicted to drugs or alcohol.  I guarantee you would not want to start life addicted to drugs or alcohol. How well do you think people function in school when they were born addicted to drugs or alcohol.  200,000 children become abductive each year from this country of America 17 million children go hungry each and every day all year long in this country of America.

  20. people watch this? very charismatic and funny! can almost speak english as well. trump is way funnier than any of these late night faggots

  21. VOTE FOR ANDREW YANG… He is not LEFT or RIGHT he is FORWARD!!! We love Andrew Yang on the Politricks Podcast!!!

  22. It’s refreshing to see people can discern authenticity in YANG and TULSI. Real humans with real hearts with real concern. And we can all feel that from these two. YANG/TULSI 2020.

  23. You know you've made some poor scrolling and clicking choices when YouTube offers up a turd from Trevor Noah!!!

  24. These candidates are only dancing around Bernie Sanders. A few years ago, not a single one of them was advocating for affordable healthcare as a human right, none of them mentioned affordable education, etc. But Bernie spoke up for what he believed in and it was popular with the American people. Now every Democrat running is parroting it just to get elected.

  25. I want the Dems to win this and get that jackass outta there above all else at this point. So I had been basing my opinion on who I'd like to put up against Trump in a cautious way, but now, I really really wanna see as many protracted shouting matches between Bernie and Trump as possible. I have always thought Bernie too far left to be a viable winner, even though I agree with him on most issues, however, now I think to hell with it, let him loose on Trump, throw down the far left gauntlet and go for it. The right put that immoral lying machine in the white house, so double down with a moral truth telling machine. I hope Bernie takes takes the nomination. I'd be cool with Kammala too, but not as excited.

  26. Not one these candidates has a chance against Trump. What a bunch of pathetic Marxists. Looking forward to the 2020 election meltdowns. Trump 2020.

  27. If you guys are going to show Bernie saying he's going to raise taxes on the middle class you need to not cut him off. Under Bernie the middle class will net save money because they will pay less for healthcare that MORE than makes up for the difference. The people who will net pay more are the 1% and large massively profitable corporations that have taken over everything.

  28. OJ is one of the greatest running backs of all times and just as important he is still living here's a good example to the rest of the world along with Bill Cosby and others that just because they part of the apple is bad does not mean that the whole apple is bad that Apple may not be as desirable as the restbut if you never take the taste of it you never really know what's going on like judging a book by its cover for lack of a better way to put it

  29. The Democrat Party are a joke!! Bring it on in 2020..
    We have a woman questioning a Judge about sex and morals
    Kamala Harris slept her way to the top ..Downtown Willie Brown
    Groping Joe perv Booker

    Thank you all for running for Democrat nomination

  30. It's like when you get your Karen-pass revoked.
    "I'd like to speak to the manager!"
    " N O ! "
    "oki'lljustbegoingthen."

  31. I really don’t understand all of this debate and what you’re talking about boy I think that debate is actually your view and opinion against another person‘s view on opinion not attacking a person that was more like car attack him that man standing over there I mean if she’s arguing about BaZing and the police that was cyber not saying this man because he and Loan cannot make it decision and the position he hold at a time my not be the mom and dad decided whatever She said what’s going on I’m just really confused
