President Trump Impeached | The Daily Show


Impeachment. It’s when America moves its
president to the spam folder. After 85 days of inquiries
and debates, today was finally the big day. So let’s see how it all went
down in another installment of the Magical, Wonderful Road
to Impeachment. -(cheering and applause)
-SINGERS (singing): It’s probably
presidential harassment. Ever since the impeachment
inquiry began back in September, there have been many days
that have felt historic: the announcement,
the testimonies, the day that Trump and Giuliani
accidentally switched dentures and talked like each other
the whole day. But as historic
as those days were, today was
the most historic of all. STEPHANOPOULOS: This Wednesday
will long be remembered. President Trump set to become
the third president in American history
to be impeached. On this truly historic day, President Donald J. Trump
is facing the harshest and rarest of rebukes by the United States
House of Representatives. A day for the history books. This is a moment
that will go down in history. This will be written about
in the history books. This is going to go down
in the history books. A day that’ll go down
in the history books. Trump must be miserable
right now. Because those are the two things
he hates the most, history books and going down. And regardless, regardless of
how you feel about impeachment, today is historic, because Trump is only the third
president ever to be impeached. Yeah, they’re gonna carve
his face on Impeachment Mount Rushmore,
right? Which, just to be clear,
will be appropriately located in the worst place imaginable,
the Port Authority bathroom. That’s where it is. So there’s no doubt
that impeachment will hurt Trump’s legacy bigly. But it also seems
like it’s hurting his feelings. REPORTER: President Trump
incensed, lashing out in a scathing six-page letter
to the House speaker, calling the impeachment process
outlined by the Constitution an illegal, partisan
attempted coup. He’s just fired off a tweet. (reading): (laughter) Yo, is it– is it just me or does it seem like Trump
went through all the stages of grief
in one tweet? Huh? It was like denial: “I can’t believe
I’m getting impeached.” Anger: “I did nothing wrong.” Depression:
“This is a terrible thing.” Acceptance:
“I guess we can only pray.” (cheering and applause) You know… you know what Trump– you know
what Trump reminds me of in that tweet is, like,
remember when you were a kid, right, who was gonna get
a spanking, but then your parents told you
it was gonna happen later ’cause they didn’t have time and then the whole day was
just you in a state of panic. That’s what Trump sounds like
in that tweet, like, just trying to, like,
get support from anywhere. You’d just be like a child
running around, like, “My mom said I b–
I didn’t break the thing! “They said I did,
but I didn’t do it. “Now they’re gonna come home.
Please pray for me. “Oh, please pray for me!
Pray for me! (sobbing)
Pray for me!” -(sobbing)
-(cheering and applause) But as upset as Trump sounds, his Republican minions in the
House seemed even more angry. (stammers)
Because they spent the day on the floor of the House
competing to see who could make impeachment
sound the worst. History will not treat
Democrats well. They’ll be forever remembered as the Senator Joe McCarthys
of our time. On December 7, 1941,
a horrific act happened in-in the United States, and it’s one
that President Roosevelt said this is a date
that will live in infamy. Today, December the 18th, 2019, is another date
that will live in infamy. When Jesus was falsely accused
of treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity
to face his accusers. During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded
more rights to Jesus than the Democrats
have afforded this president. -(gasping, laughter)
-Holy shit! Did these guys just compare
impeachment to Pearl Harbor
and what happened to Jesus? What, did they just google
“bad things” and then click
“I’m feeling lucky”? Is that what happened? First of all, people
actually died at Pearl Harbor. No one’s dying here, okay? And, secondly,
Jesus was tortured and then nailed to the cross. That is way worse
than what’s happening to Trump. And even if Trump
was gonna be put on the cross, he’d never carry it himself. He’d probably put it on the back
of a golf cart, all right? “It’s the same.”
It’s not the same. It’s not even close. So, House Republicans spent
the whole day being huge drama queens
about impeachment. In fact, at one point,
a Republican congressman from Ohio even held–
and this is completely real– a moment of silence for the 63 million people
who voted for Donald Trump. Which is kind of ironic,
because Donald Trump would never be able to hold
a moment of silence for himself. Yeah, he’d just be like,
“Let’s have a moment of silence. “Wow, this is the greatest
moment of silence ever. “Listen to how silent it is. “So silent. “No silence has ever sounded
like this before. “I can’t believe
how silent it is. So powerful!” But even though–
“So powerful!” Yo, yo. We get it. -Yo.
-(whooping) But even though this was
a bad day for Republicans, that doesn’t mean
that Democrats were gloating. In fact, all day,
they wanted everyone to know that this impeachment
made them very, very sad. Madam Speaker, this is
a sad day in U.S. history when we have to vote
on articles of impeachment. It’s a sad day. I-It’s gonna be a somber day
around here. It’s with profound sadness
that I stand here today. We think this is a very serious
and sad day. I was just talking
to a Democratic congresswoman who’s wearing a-a dark dress to show the somber nature
of the day, the gravity of the day. It is tragic that
the president’s reckless actions make impeachment necessary. He gave us no choice. Oh. That’s right. All day, the Democrats were
roaming the halls of Congress, sad and depressed, just walking around
like a living Adele album. (laughter) ♪ Hello ♪ ♪ Impeach. ♪ (laughter) Anyway, for more
on the mood in Washington, let’s go to our senior
impeachment correspondent, Michael Kosta, everybody! (applause and cheering) Michael… you’re in D.C. right now at the Democratic Party
headquarters. All the Democrats say
they’re sad, but wasn’t today a win for them? It… It’s not about winning,
Trevor. It’s an impeachment,
not an arm-wrestling match against my six-year-old nephew,
okay? Democrats take no pleasure
in doing this. No matter what you think
about Trump, no one is happy
when the president is impeached. -(loud pop)
-Wait. Is that champagne? What-what was that? -Um…
-(laughter) Yes, it’s…
it’s grieving champagne. Democrats are passing it around so everyone can pour one out
for democracy. (laughter) No, but I think
when you pour one out, -you’re supposed to pour it on
the floor, Kosta. -Oh. This… Come on. This is Cristal. I mean, this is…
this is for special occa… This is for special…
sad occasions. (laughter) Like this dark day. You know, it’s weird,
Michael, because it feels like Democrats are acting sad, but then, deep down, they’re actually happy
about this. No, Trevor,
you’re reading this all wrong. Okay? The… (applause and cheering) The mood here– it’s downright depressing. Yeah, Nancy.
Today sucked, huh? Hey, save me one
of those Jager Bombs, girl. Oh, come on, Kosta.
Party hats and Jager Bombs? Clearly, for Democrats,
this is a party. Trevor. You know, shame on you. This is not a party at all. -(laughter, applause, cheering)
-I… I am surrounded by sadness. Dude,
you must think I’m an idiot. Like, like, I don’t get why
Democrats are pretending to be sad, right? They’ve wanted
to impeach Trump for ages. This has to make them
at least a little bit happy. -It’s just like…
-(dance music playing) Wait. Kosta, is that music
I’m hearing? Yeah, Trev. -(applause and cheering)
-There is too much sadness to fit into that space,
so we moved it to the club. So, now we’re just
grinding away our sorrows. All right, man.
I don’t buy it. The Democrats are happy.
It’s obvious. Trevor, Trevor, I can literally
taste the sadness, okay? Although that might just be
the Molly kicking in. -Am I talking about? Oh!
-All right. Don’t be sad all night.
We got work tomorrow. Michael Kosta, everybody.

  1. Honestly the far left and the far right need to have a giant battle royale in the middle of the Nevada desert. Then whomever wins, gets shot between the eyes, leaving only the most reasonable middle of the road types to rebuild what partisan politics has made a laughable form of government.

  2. I don't understand why his impeached, everyone is just against him for some reason and people just keep making jokes about it, it just shows me that they really don't care about their country

  3. People like me are all screen capping your smug fuckery, cause when it's over and done and the dems look like fucking morons (because they are) and the impeachment is overthrown in the senate we're going to remind you via your own comments/tweets how colossal your buffoonery is.

  4. So, as of 3 days after this, he still hasn't been impeached… Somebody might want to remind Nancy that she needs to send it over to the Senate before he's actually impeached.

  5. Articles of impeachment were voted on, he hasn’t been impeached yet in this sham. That won’t happen until they send it off to the Senate, and they haven’t yet. This partisan lynching will die in the Senate anyway.

    Enjoy his re-election Libby’s.

  6. Majority of libtards get their news at late night crap like this and you wonder why they have the same thought process. Reeeee

  7. Rep. Brady (3:25): "They will be forever remembered as the Senator McCarthy of our time"
    Wasn't that the guy who tried to hunt down all the russian spies?

  8. ARE THE WESTERN COLONIASTS, ZOMBIES OR WHAT? BBC OUTLINES HERE AND THERE,INCIDENTS, OH
    THE 60YR OLD THROWN OFF A BALCONY? MUSLIMS DEFEND,!!!! WHEN ON EARTH ARE YOU GOING TO GET IT!!?
    BBC ALWAYS DIVERTS ,
    TRUTH TOLD OF MUSLIMS ,BEING PERSECUTED WORLDWIDE,,,TYPICAL COLONIASTS,, HE SAID SHE SAID,,, ISLAMIC COUNTIRES, AND ITS PEOPLE UNTIL TODAY
    HAVE TRIED TO AVOID,CONFRONTATION ,WITH WESTERN, PERSECUTION, OF INNOCENTS,AND MUSLIMS IN GENERAL… SO, UNLESS YOURE INTO DRUGS,DECAYED SOCIETIES, NO DEATH PENALTY COUNTRIES,
    PROSTITUTION, YOURE JUST NOT WELCONE IN THE WEST !!!!

  9. Hahahahahahahahaha!!Dec. 21- SENATE CAN ACQUIT EVEN IF HOUSE WITHHOLDS ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT!! TopStories!! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=stricstjv_8&t=29s

  10. TRUMP IS STILL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA.
    finally I found the video page of the FOOLS. From Nigeria the whole world is scornfully laughing at the Dems. The latest American disgrace is the dems

  11. Did u guys know that Clinton’s impeachment and trumps are a day apart that is so weird Clinton’s the the 19 dec 1998 and trump 18 dec 2019 omg

  12. Please don’t compare Donald Trump to Jesus Or Impeachment to Pearl Harbor. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was probably the one that got a bunch of self-proclaimed Christians to defend and protect the most un-Christian president in history. Somehow, a man defined by the kind of greed, wrath, lust, envy, sloth, gluttony, and pride that would be at home alongside the worst villains of the old or new testament has yelled loud and long enough that members of Congress are comparing him … to Christ.

  13. Trump isn't yet impeached, in fact, they've not voted on anything other than starting an impeachment trial, and sad for dems, Trump can call his own witnesses and his own lawyers can cross examine.

  15. Rep Loudermilk should have been struck down by lightning where he stood for his blasphemous remark in comparing this impeachment with our Lord and Saviors, Jesus Christ cruxifition. God help us

  16. 😂😂😂😂 Canada and France PM are invited 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈 🎈

  17. Doesn’t mean anything
    You call Donald Trump evil but you support policies that have people eating rats and have killed over a 100 million people

  18. Treevaaah.. Noah….! Most "bruin-o's" carry.. one-two "articles" in their jackets… maybe you or your dumb-bra's.. have it stached..somewhere. When you find it, give it to Nancy….🤔🤔🤔🤔

  19. It is very sad. Look at our country and what other countries think of us. 63 million Americans voted for this loser. It is sad.

  20. I don’t understand how this helps?in the long run it will turn more people towards trump and guarantee his re election,well done democrats

  21. Your "impeachment" means fookin nothing

    the fact that you pathetic slimy demo-rats are too pu$$y to even send it to the senate
    says it all

    "gotta hold on to these papers in case he wins again since we dont have ANY

    confidence in our uncharismatic, boring, couldn't sell a candy to a baby candidates"

    hahahahaha 🤣

  22. For how irrelevant this might be, Costa isn't drinking Crystal but Mionetto Prosecco from Valdobbiadene – Italy (near where I live) and as I pour one for myself thinking about Trump's impeachment, my wife is saying: "yep…typical Italian bragging away for no reason… "

  23. Thank you Trevor for providing hours of dumb people on twitter who actually thought impeachment meant Trump was gone. It was an early xmas gift to watch dumb people celebrating the removal of Trump only to find out he is still here and stronger. You may want to inform your viewers that Trump is going to be President for a second term and all this impeachment did was rally his base and turn the majority in his favor. Now I look forward to the tears in 2020. Its like democrats are pissed that this country is doing so well. Well have a merry xmas and I look forward to seeing your face the morning of nov 9th 2020.

  24. No he's not what's your evidenceimpeaching somebody all it takes is a group of people to say we agree we don't like him that's impeachment. You don't have to do anything wrong. Which is the case in the case of trump it's all a setup they tried seven other Impeachments is obstruction of Congress…

    Now that's his right to do to go to the courts. And Nancy Pelosi Congress did not it. The house said the moment she passes it it's dead in the water there are no grounds for impeachment…

    So all you boneheads acting as if there's some grounds of some sort now it says bigotry biggest liars manipulator females

  25. This POS. You libtards listen to his horseshit and think he’s cool… is Trump bashing the only thing this guy can do because I’m sure he can’t wipe his own ass without a flashlight an map and written instructions.

  26. Trevor is a perfect example of evolution; he hasn't got to that next stage yet. If Trevor feels so strongly about politics, then why doesn't he go back to South Africa and straighten that hell hole out instread of sucking at hollyweird's tit? You know why? Because he's a fuckin coward. What the hell was Stewart thinking anointing this unfunny know nothing to his vacated seat. Oh that's right, Stewart's also a leftist coward. I've Read John's book. Loved the whole gang (including Colbert) but of course they all now suffer from TDS including that C%$T Samantha B. How the f75ck she even has a show is beyond every intelligent person's comprehension. You A$$holes on the left have created a hell of a delemma for yourselves. I'm a classical liberal and you leftist shits stole the very heart and soul of it through academic morons and fascists. You're going to get what you deserve. Its already happening, but you're too preoccupied with TDS to understand the damage it's done to your own cause.

  27. Omg they’re bringing Jesus’s crucifixion and Pearl Harbor into this…how delusional are they people?? 🤦🏻‍♀️😳😭

  28. The Jesus comparison is absurd on every level, but it doesn't even support the guy's argument. He seems to be suggesting that Trump, unlike Jesus, was given no opportunity to face his accusers. But Trump could have testified before the House at any time. In fact, I'm sure they would have loved it.

  29. He was only impeached in the house. He will keep office the remainder of his presidency. All of this is horribly pointless. Lol. I'm a proggessive Democrat and don't even remotely understand why everyone is so excited

  30. This show sucks. Why did they take off John he was so much better. Trever has got to be the most boring unfunny person on this entire planet

  31. Let's say trump did use his power to get the bidens investigated? Why is that such a bad thing? That man is a child rapist, I should know I live in DE where he came from…
