President Trump’s Muslim-Targeted Travel Ban: The Daily Show

President Trump’s Muslim-Targeted Travel Ban: The Daily Show

Let’s get
into tonight’s show, and the start of week two of the Donald Trump Presidency. TV REPORTER:Chaotic scenes
erupting at airports
around the world.TV REPORTER:Protests all
across the country.
TV REPORTER:Denounce President
Trump’s temporary ban
on travelers from seven
mostly Muslim countries.
TV REPORTER:Lawyers descending
on airports.
Chaos and confusion.
Is this the America that
we believe in? CROWD:
No! -Is this liberty?
-CROWD: No! Do you understand how insane
this is? People in the airport
were pissed, and it’s not because
they’re at the airport. Welcome to Trump’s America. That’s how bad “The Donald” is. No matter how bad
the situation you’re in, Donald Trump can always
make it worse. Like, there could be people
trapped in an earthquake and still they’d be going,
“Ah, ah. “I can’t believe Donald Trump’s
new policies. (yells) That guy was the lucky one.” (laughter) It’s official, people, this weekend, Trump signed
an executive order putting his so-called Muslim ban
in to effect. And I know most of you already
know what’s in it, but just for the one person who
doesn’t understand it fully, let’s take the time to explain
what the ban means. -Hey, Donald.
-♪ ♪ I know you don’t actually write or read
any of those boring papers, so let me explain to you
what you did. You banned everyone
from seven Muslim countries from entering the United States. Even though you said your ban was to protect America
from outside threats, that ban included people
with green cards. It even seemed to include
dual citizens of Canada or Britain, or any other country
you didn’t plan to ban, you silly billy. Now go back to watching CNN. Go back, go back, go back,
go back. By the way,
this is just real quick. This guy who was banned
from the U.K., his name is Zahawi, all right? And he was a politician who,
in the U.K., used to tweet about Brexit. And he was like,
“We need our country back. We need to protect our borders,
Brexit.” And then this weekend,
he was like, “America won’t let me in
because I’m a foreigner. “How can Donald Trump do this?” Hmm? Comes around, baby.
Comes around. (cheers and applause) Now, now because Donald Trump
put this thing together with all the consideration
of a drunken Vegas wedding, it’s no surprise that it ended
with devastated families. TV REPORTER:Families
separated for hours,
including this 5-year-old boy.TV REPORTER:The Cleveland
clinic doctor,
she was forced to leave,
even though she holds
an H-1B Visa for workers
in specialty occupations.
TV REPORTER:Hameed Darweesh
is a 53-year-old Iraqi.
He had helped the U.S. militaryfor ten years in Iraq
as an interpreter.
TV REPORTER:Fuad Sharef and his
family, Iraqi refugees,
planned to make their move
to the U.S. yesterday,
his family given the visa,
because he risked his life
working with
the U.S. government.
I don’t know what to do
because I sold my house. I quit my job. Now, if ever there’s a story
of being screwed over, it’s this. A man risked his
and his family’s life to help America’s efforts
in Iraq, and now he’s being turned away? He can’t go home. He sold his house. He quit his job. And also, ’cause anyone
going out like that, you know he burned a few bridges
on the way out. Like, no one’s leaving Iraq coming to America
without making a show. He was probably like, “Malik.
Who’s going to America? “Not you. Boom. Who’s out? I’m out.” (humming “The Star
Spangled Banner”) “I’m out of here.” He can’t go back. Now, one of the advantages
of being president is that you get to decide
foreign policy without consulting anyone.
I understand that’s a perk. But only a Trump administration
would fail to inform itself as to what was going on. Sources told
our Homeland Security reporter that senior-level officials
at DHS did not have meaningful warning
of the details. Homeland Security scrambled
to understand and enforce it. John McCain and Lindsey Graham
say they’re caught off guard. Exclusion of General Mattis. No guidance provided to Customs
and Border Protection. What kind of a slapdash,
arts-and-crafts administration are these fools running?
Think about it, even the border officials,
even the border officials didn’t understand the ban. They had to enforce it,
and they didn’t understand it. They were probably asking
the refugees to help them. They’re just like, “Hey,
do-do you know what this means? Do you know what it means?”
And the guy was like, “Uh, yeah, “I think it means
you should be sending me back even though
I have correct paperwork.” “I just… I know it sound… It
just feels a little draconian. I don’t want
to seem like an asshole.” “Hey, don’t worry.
We all have jobs, my friend. “Your job, your job is
to enforce an irrational ban. “My job is to go home and die. Huh? We all have jobs.” Now, if you’re wondering
where President Trump was when airports around the country
were in chaos… Right now, on the schedule
for the president, he is hosting a family screening
ofFinding Doryin the White House theater. “Shh! “Don’t disturb me! “I don’t care what’s happening
at the airports. “I’m watching a movie
about families being separated! It’s hilarious! Shut up!” Who is this man?
And, by the way, who hasn’t watched
Finding Dory
yet?! It’s 2017! This man is not fit
to be president! -Not fit!
-(cheering and applause) (exhales) To comment on President Trump’s
immigration bla… ban, please welcome Hasan Minhaj,
everybody! (cheering and applause) I’m sorry, Hasan.
I’m just… I’m… Like, right now,
I can’t even talk. I can’t even imagine what it’s
like to all of a sudden have the United States label Muslims
as inherently threatening, man. (chuckles)
I’m not surprised. You know, in the past,
America has had lots of issues with Muslims and immigration. You know, President Carter
banned Iranians, Bush built a registry
of immigrants from 24 Muslim countries, Obama suspended refugees
from Iraq. But Trump is taking this thing
to a whole new level. I mean, those other presidents
were just dipping their toes in the pool. Now Trump
straight-up did a cannonball and then felt up the lifeguard. And, by the way, shout-outs
to all my Republican friends who promised me
Trump would never do this. I don’t think any of the people
who are screaming at the top of their lungs thinks
for a moment that, uh, that is a literal… uh, that a literal
interpretation would be Muslims. That’s not a real proposal.
It’s not… it’s not something
that’s going to happen. I don’t think you can take
a lot of that seriously. He’s not gonna ban all Muslims. What the (bleep)? So wearegetting banned? Well, Hasan, Hasan, technically, technically, uh,
you’re a citizen, so this ban doesn’t affect you. Yet! We’re on day 11, man! That’s it! Where do you think
this is gonna go?! It’s like watching the first
episode ofBreaking Badthinking, “Oh, it’s just
a science teacher cooking meth. It can’t get any crazier.” But it does. Well, Has-Hasan,
now-now, jokes aside– and this is…
this is completely true– -you actually flew into JFK
Airport this weekend, -I was. uh, as Trump’s executive order
was being implemented. That is correct.
And I was scared -that I wouldn’t be allowed
back in. -Wow. Where-where were you flying in
from? Were you flying from Iran, Iraq or Syria or…? Sacramento, California, the Syria of the West. (laughing):
I mean… No. I mean…
No, jokes aside though. On-on the real,
on the real though, like, you’re a Muslim person.
You’re seeing this happening, You must really hate
President Trump right now. Well, actually, Trevor,
I’m not sure. Nah, ’cause, usually, being
a Muslim in an airport sucks, but, this weekend,
it was like I wastheWeeknd. I mean, I land at JFK, I get…
I get to the arrivals section. Literally, three white people
run up to me, hug me, and say,
“Thank you for being Muslim.” I’m 31 years old. That’s the first time anyone has
thanked me for being Muslim. And-and what did you…
what did you say to them? I said what any Muslim would say
to them in that situation. “Do you know
where Baggage Claim 5 is?” But how can I hate Trump
right now? H-How do you do it? Just look at
what he’s done at the airport. White women were turning
their scarves into hijabs. Muslims were publicly praying, and people
were cheering them on! Do you understand?
Muslims publicly praying at the airport! Think about how crazy this is! -(cheering and applause)
-Because of Donald Trump, people were being nice
at the airport! Here’s the beautiful irony. For years,
Donald Trump has been terrified about the spread of Islam
in America. Well, congratulations,
Mr. President. -Mission accomplished.

    The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked Naresh Goyal, the former Jet Airways chairman, to deposit Rs 18,000 crore as guarantee in response to his plea challenging the travel ban imposed on him. Justice Suresh Kait was reportedly asked Goyal to deposit the amount if he wanted relief from the travel ban and said that an interim relief at this stage was not possible. 


  2. Why is it that when Indian or Asian go to America they think like it's a holiday trip but the Muslim on the other hand think like they return home??

  3. I sold my house . I quit my job. I helped USA destroy my country. And now u ban me !! . yes u deserve that u asshhole traitor

  4. If he ban Muslims travelling to the United States of America it should be big shame on Donald trump because he always said Saudi Arabia so why he can't say that to Saudi Arabia do not came to United United why he couldn't even say that on Saudis because of money billions dollars by Saudis king but i know if say on Saudis citizens he will not get money from Saudi Arabia so heres the reason why he can't do it cose he afraid to Saudi Arabia but he is a loser ! ?????

  5. If u realizes this orange fuck has stopped saying anti Muslim shit until he met with the Saudi Arabia prince he made him stfu

  6. America is a motherfucker country and those who help it are motherfuckers too … Fuck America and fuck Trump


    Jews that read and learn Al Quran, she love to read it and she kinda proud what inside the Koran.

  8. There never was a muslim ban. It is a dishonest term.

    How can it be a muslim ban when countries like Venezuela and North Korea were on the list, while countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were not?

    And why no outrage about all those Islamic countries that have a travel ban against Israel for decades? Talk about being selective

  9. I'm black and Muslim?? sooo proud and wouldn't change anything

    Ps. If you're not apart of the religion please don't speak on it, you have probably never read the Quran and only read what's on google.
    Please, thank u, bye????✋?

    Edit: I'm from one of the country's Trump band and I feel a little sad because Somali hasn't really done anything like dangerous.
    But like ok?

  10. They should have banned Pakistan where the government assists terrorists to infiltrate India and other countries but we can’t because we support them

  11. I remember when people kept on saying that trump would ruin america. And now the only people ruining america are the ones complaining while he literally doesnt do anything

  12. I use to like trove. he was always talking about Jesus by any means.
    now he is busy talking about something else.
    Thank God I ban my self to not watching you

  13. Islam terrorism always use women advantage. Intelligent. Ancient jahilliyyah killed & raped women for spreading religion. Now become innocent. Ban them all

  14. Immigration laws are dumb , people shouldn't pay the consequences of something they didn't do just cause they were born in the same country as other people who happen to be a terrorists/drug dealers , why ? Why not just try to defeat isis , and by that i mean isis not some random brown guy

  15. As a muslim myself i just can't feel happier about this , thank you for giving us hope , Americans really aren't out of their minda after all, but then again trump did get re-elected so nr

  16. It's called addressing the problem. If you are still unaware of it, then you need to stop with the rhetoric, & listen to ex-Muslims that are warning everyone. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a start to help you get your head out of your ass. A MASSIVE amount of people immigrating to your culture means they will replace your culture. It's not complicated morons.

  17. Watching this in 2019 its crazy how wrong this guy was lmao. Now Muslims are causing nothing but issues, and trump is gaining more and more support while this ugly dude is still screaming fuck trump thinking he's benefitting society is some way. Like who writes this guys checks he's a terrible host.

  18. The muslim ban is the only good thing Trump has done. If only he had included every single muslim country on the list and also deported/placed in internment camps muslims that are already here.

  19. Muslims want to come to developed nations enjoy with the tax payers money and want all the sympathy and want to kill and rape Real Americans
    This is how islam spread
    Preserve your culture America before they finish your culture as well
    Islam is the fastest growing religion in America
    How unsafe is that
    #stopIslam #noMuslimsInAmerica

  20. 3:20 its Karma Baby Go Ahead Help Them More Invade Your Country. You Have Nuclear Weapons Iraq and we will Invade You. After Invasion
    America-Did I said Anything about Nuclear Weapons ??? I dont Find but I Found Oil.

  21. I don't have a problem USA wanted to control its immigration but your own constitution says you can't discrimate on basis of religion. Also if you gonna do that might as well throw in Saudi Arabia which has long list of human rights abuses. But no for some reason they aren't on it. Also they aren't Indonesia and Malaysia have way higher Muslim population.? Even then doesn't USA have mostly internal terrorism compared to Islamic terrorism
    And it affects people here here on working on visa which wasn't smart move.
    I know people bring up Obama Bush and Iraq refugee program and I didn't necessarily agree with that either.

  22. Love this show. He is not afraid of telling the truth. Trump supporters are mostly uneducated bunch of stupid people!
    How could you support such a man like trump.

  23. I'm a muslim but not a religious… it's funny when they talk about islam…have you actually read the bible?! It's religion it wasn't written in 2016 it has a lot of barbaric stuff that before thousands of years it was accepted… but now it's not there is no religion full of peace and liberalism it has a good side and a bad side

  24. I agree! Harry s Truman banned Muslims during his tenure as President! Then the USA hating democrats (ovomit) REVERSED IT ! Politicians will do anything for votes I’d like to remind you Donald Trump is not a politician he’s a businessman and he watches the bottom dollar this country is bankrupt and he’s doing his damnedest to undo all those years of Democrats spending spending spending and the senators need a maximum of two terms! Lock and load! Love my President!

  25. Hey dumbass you need to go to Dearborn Michigan! See what the down town is like! You’ll think your in an Srinivasan country!

  26. Go home you fucking gay ass British fuck! We don't give a fuck what you think. You cant even vote here thank God! Fucking fake ass nigga

  27. "Who is this man?! And, by the way, who hasn't watched FINDING DORY YET?!"
    Me:*Sheepishly and slowly raises hand* I'm sorry Trevor. It's 2019 and I've barely seen the trailers.

  28. Im Pakistani Muslim and i love your show. I visited American twice but on my third trip 2004 on the airport the didn't let me my go out to meet my American brothers who they were waiting out side the airport. And the deported me with 5 years multiple visa back to Pakistan with out any charges. I don't know why after that when i came here and fight the case and i won and USA embassy said you can apply for visa and you can go again to USA. Wtf

  29. So many years of such an amazing show and only 71K views.. While your dog petting videos get millions of likes and viral mentions..

  31. befor every thing been allah said to the pen : write the pen said : what i write ?Allah said : write i bear Witness there is no god but allah and i bear Witness Muhammad is prophète of allah

  32. Christians being persicuted in America is fine but if a Muslim is banned that's a problem. You liberals who support the democratic are racist in your own way and Christianophobic(if it is a word). They are such hypocrits

  33. That man who sold his country for another deserves it! why would you betray your country and not expect to be betrayed and screwed over! As Trevor said “comes around” there’s nothing lowest than being unpatriotic.. i have no compassion for him or people like him..

  34. it's funny how Arab Saudi, Malaysia, Brunei, and my country the most Muslim populated: Indonesia ?? is not banned why do you think is that? can u give me your oppinion about this?

  35. I really don't understand when did a belief become an ethnicity . I mean , does anyone know how idiotic that sounds . It's like saying 'you look Christian' I mean come on…….
