July Democratic Debates – Night Two | The Daily Show


Now, the second night of the
Democratic debates just ended. And of the two nights, this was the debate
everybody was waiting for. You know, if last night was
a small lower back tattoo, tonight was Mike Tyson’s face! Because, coming into tonight, we all knew it was about beef. REPORTER: The stage is set
for a second heated showdown. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris
facing off just hours from now. REPORTER 2: High stakes rematch.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris facing off again tonight after her blistering attack
in the first debate. Biden vowing he won’t be
so polite this time. Joe Biden telling donors
it’s no more Mr. Nice Guy. I was probably overly polite in,
uh, the way I didn’t respond. Yes, according to Biden,
the last time he didn’t do well was because he was
overly polite, which is a convenient excuse for
getting your ass handed to you. I, uh…
I used that same excuse whenever I lost a fight
in high school. (crying): “The only reason
he was able to shove me in that locker
is because I’m a gentleman.” So, in the buildup
to tonight’s debate, the main story was Kamala Harris
versus Joe Biden. But because Cory Booker
has also been going after Biden for the past couple of weeks, tonight’s debate was set up
for fireworks, especially once we found out where everyone
would be standing on that stage. REPORTER: Biden
will find himself flanked by Booker and Harris. Biden standing in between
two candidates who have targeted him most, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris. And racial inequality could be
a very big discussion. Joe Biden is in an uncomfortable
sandwich on that stage. He’s got on either side of him
Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Yeah, Joe Biden,
this was an unlucky draw, man. Cory Booker on the one side, Kamala on the other side,
and he’s in the middle. It’s like the world’s
most racially charged Oreo. I feel like Joe Biden got
on the stage and just instinctively tried
to lock his car doors. He was like…
(groaning) “No attacks.” And if you tuned into the debate
hoping to see conflict, it didn’t take long
for you to get your wish. Vice President Biden’s campaign
calls your plan “a have it every which way
approach.” Well, they’re probably confused
’cause they’ve not read it. There will be a public plan
under my plan for Medicare and a private plan
under my plan for Medicare. If you’ll notice,
there’s no talk about the fact that the plan, in ten years,
will cost $3 trillion. You will lose
your employer-based insurance. You can’t beat President Trump
with double-talk on this plan. You’re just simply inaccurate
in what you’re describing. Your plan, by contrast, leaves out
almost ten million Americans. So I think
that you should really think about what you’re saying
but be reflective and understand that the people of America
want access to health care. That’s right.
Two minutes into the debate and Kamala was already removing
her earrings and Biden was removing
his hair plugs. “Oh, it’s on. It’s on.” Now, this time, this time, Biden and Kamala
were arguing back and forth about who had
a stronger health care plan. And compared, compared
to the previous skirmish, they were a lot more civil,
as you saw. You know?
This was like a couple fighting after the cops had told them
to calm down, you know? Just like, “No, I’m trying
to keep my cool here, “but your-your health care plan
ain’t shit, just like your mama.”
(inhales sharply) But other than that,
other than that, the health care debate
was pretty civil tonight. Again,
the Democrats largely agreed on the big picture of getting
universal health care. What they disagreed on
is how to get there. Biden proposed
polishing Obamacare and disrupting the system
as little as possible. Kamala wanted a Medicare plan
that also incorporated something that would include
private insurance. And Bill de Blasio,
he just wanted to knock the whole thing down,
you know? Just like he did to Tokyo. So, to figure out who had the best plan, the Democrats got down
to the numbers. And I mean a lot of numbers. Let’s talk about math. Let’s talk about the fact that
the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies
last year alone profited $72 billion. My plan costs $750 billion. That’s what it costs. -Not $30 trillion.
-Thank you, Mr. Vice… That is 70% of what the government
will collect in taxes over the next ten years. 20% of our economy, one out of every five dollars
spent, on health care. I don’t know what math you do
in New York. I don’t know
what math you do in California. But I tell you,
that’s a lot of money. “Hey, I’ll tell you what kind
of math we got in New York. “Number one and number two,
asshole! “That’s the kind of math
we got here! -‘Ey!”
-(cheering and applause) I’m– Can I be honest
with you guys? This, this is the part
of the debate where I think Democrats really
need to get a whole lot better. No one at home can keep up
with all of these numbers. 40 billion, seven percent, 70% over ten years, 30 trillion, three trillion
when you compound the– No, it’s too complicated,
all right? It almost made me miss
Donald Trump. Yeah. Because when he does math,
he just comes onstage like, “Folks, we’re gonna do numbers. Best numbers, bigger numbers.” And everyone at home is like,
“Yeah, numbers. I guess there’s numbers.” You got to find a middle ground. So that was health care. Then came immigration. And just like last night, the major question
facing Democrats was how would they deal
with the crisis at the border, most of them agreeing, again, that they would try
and find a more humane way to treat asylum seekers
and illegal immigrants. But when they brought up
President Obama’s record of mass deportations, Joe Biden probably wished
that he could have been deported out of this debate. Vice President Biden,
I didn’t hear your response when the issue came up
of all those deportations. You were vice president
of the United States. I didn’t hear whether
you tried to stop them or not, using your power, your influence
in the White House. The president came along,
and he’s the guy that came up with the idea, first time ever,
of dealing with the Dreamers. He put-put that in the law. I don’t hear an answer from the
vice president. I’m confused. Mr. Vice President, you want to be president
of the United States. You need to be able
to answer the tough questions. I guarantee you,
if you’re debating Donald Trump, he’s not gonna
let you off the hook. I was vice president.
I am not the president. I keep my recommendations to him
in private, unlike you. I would expect
you would go ahead and say whatever was said
privately with him. That is not what I do. Oh, hold up. Did Joe Biden just call Bill
de Blasio a little-ass snitch? (laughter) That’s-that’s what he said,
right? Yeah. I hadn’t realized Biden
was so true to the streets. He’s like, “Uh, Mr. Mayor,
unlike you, I protect my neck, “’cause these bitches
ain’t loyal. That’s what I do.” So, this is where the debate
got interesting, right? Bill de Blasio sucker-punches
Biden out of nowhere, asking him why he let Obama
deport so many people. And just when Biden is trying
to battle the giant of New York, Cory Booker jumps in
with the shiv. Mr. Vice President,
you can’t have it both ways. You invoke President Obama more
than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it
when it’s convenient, -and then dodge it
when it’s not. -Right. Yeah. Cory Booker makes
a good point. Joe Biden’s really good
at using Obama when it’ll help his résumé, but
then, when it comes to something that Obama wasn’t really
great at, all of a sudden, Biden’s like, “Obama? Obama? “Is that the Irish guy–
Patty Obama? Is that who?
I think I’ve been to that pub.” And that Obama line
was just the beginning, right? Because after that, Cory went on
full-on attack mode. Senator Booker called your new
criminal justice reform plan, “An inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis
in our country.” Why is Senator Booker wrong? Well, I don’t…
I think he is wrong. I think we should work together.
He has a similar plan. I think that we should change
the way we look at prisons. We have a system right now
that’s broken, and if you want
to compare records– and frankly,
I’m shocked that you do– uh, I am happy to do that. There’s a saying
in my community. “You’re dipping
into the Kool-Aid, and you don’t even
know the flavor.” -(groaning, clamoring)
-Uh, you need to… -Whoa.
-(hooting, whooping) Yeah! You know what’s cool
about being black is you can just make up phrases, and white people don’t know
if it’s real. (laughter) (applause and cheering) ‘Cause we were watching
the debate, and every white person
in the room just looked at me, like, “Is that a thing?
Is that…?” Black people–
we can just say whatever. Just be like,
“Man, you better watch yourself, “’cause right now,
you deep frying a chicken. but it ain’t got no skin.” (laughter) This is where
Cory was in his element. He had Biden on the ropes. And he was always
gonna have him on the ropes, because Vice President Biden has
been in politics for 50 years. He is bound to have more baggage
than anyone else. It’s not a fight
that he could win. And then, just when you thought that Biden was the target
of the night, Tulsi Gabbard pops up
from under the ring and slams Kamala with the chair. Senator Harris says she’s proud
of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be
a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned
about this record. She put over 1,500 people
in jail for marijuana violations, and then laughed about it
when she was asked -if she ever smoked marijuana.
-(applause and cheering) She blocked evidence… She blocked evidence that would have freed
an innocent man from death row. -And she fought to keep…
-Thank you, Congresswoman. …cash bail system in place that impacts poor people
in the worst kind of way. Yeah, that was a rough moment
for Kamala, ’cause while she was trying
to come after Biden for his history
on criminal justice, Tulsi Gabbard came after her
for hers, which isn’t exactly
the best record. And you could see
Kamala wasn’t happy in this moment, you know? She was about to be like,
“Tulsi, let me tell you “a story about a little girl
who got her ass beat, and that little girl was you.” (laughter) So now, you’ve got
de Blasio coming after Biden, Booker jumping in the middle,
Gabbard hitting Kamala. It was almost like Quentin Tarantino wrote
this part of the debate– everyone killing everyone. And then, just like yesterday, while all the bigger candidates
were fighting, the smaller candidates used
the little time they had to try and break through
with policy and ideas. And tonight’s
Marianne Williamson was Colorado senator
Michael Bennet. This is the fourth debate
that we have had and the second time
that we have been debating what people did 50 years ago
with busing, when our schools are
as segregated today as they were 50 years ago. (applause and cheering) I believe
you can draw a straight line from slavery through Jim Crow, through the banking
and the red-lining to the mass incarceration
that we were talking about on this stage a few minutes ago. But you know
what other line I can draw? 88% of the people in our prisons
dropped out of high school! Let’s fix our school system, -and maybe we can fix…
-Senator? -…the prison pipeline that we
have. -(applause and cheering) (imitating South Park’s
Mr. Mackey): M’kay? (laughter, applause) Say what you want about him,
but Mr. Mackey is right. Instead of spending
half of the debate talking about laws
written 50 years ago, it would have been nice
to hear more about how
the Democratic candidates plan to fix America’s problems today. And I’ll be honest with you. It was really weird that the
Democrats allowed themselves to get sidetracked by side beefs when they all also acknowledge
that they have one common goal– defeating
public enemy number one. But this pitting against
progressives, against moderates, saying one is unrealistic, and
the other doesn’t care enough– that, to me,
is dividing our party and demoralizing us
in face of the real enemy here. I would take any Democrat
on this stage over the current president
of the United States. We cannot tear each other down. We have to focus
on beating Donald Trump. Don’t let the Republicans divide
this party against itself. We’re gonna make America better
than it’s ever been in the years to come. -Let’s do that together.
-(applause and cheering) Yeah, you see? It’s weird.
Everyone says that. They all said they want
to beat Donald Trump. But here’s the honest truth:
if the Democrats spend every single debate
destroying each other, by the time you get to
a one-on-one with Donald Trump, you’ll already have done
his work for him. Yeah. ‘Cause you’ll get
to the debate all discredited, and he won’t have
to do anything. He’ll just come out and be like,
“Guys, so many numbers. So many numbers.”
We’ll be right back. (cheering)

  1. Trevor U fuckin hack , I knew you were bought out but dammit it's still disappointing how you cover this. Still , you're a comedian, not a reporter

  2. So glad she mentioned what I continue to say over and over again; the insurance companies "profitted" 72 Billion and they say we need to keep paying more??? They need to stop taking so much of our money and still we pay co-pays and annual deductibles to make them richer.

  3. Only one sentence from Yang?
    THE MEDIA THINKS THEY CAN CENSOR WHO WE ALL WANT. THEY GOT ANOTHER THING COMING #YANG2020

  4. They use all these racial notes and tones with total abandon, and when anyone not black uses but a tiny drop of the same theme, oh !! It Is a pandemonium of accusations of racism of epic proportions !!

    Any wonder that Africa is the mess that it is ?!!

  5. Instead of spending trillions on national health care, why doesn't any of the candidates propose to clam down on the health care giants that are over charging for everything? Why because there scared. The health care problem needs to start inside out not outside in. More regulations on how much pharmaceuticals companies are allowed to mark up drugs and medical devices? More access to generic alternates to medications ect. This will cost the government nothing and save Americans billions.

  6. It is so nasty politics in the USA. Dirty trash and blame each other for nonsense. It is a joke. At the end, neither of them will solve the real problems facing us today.

  7. Come on, no need to protect Biden. Go all out…where was the 30330? Clear winners were buttigeig and Castro, but I think most people like character and past experience over proposed approaches and concise answers

  8. Is Bill under the impression that the VP has constitutional powers within the executive branch? Pres Obama made the final call on policy direction, Biden as VP voiced his opinion as an adviser and then stuck by his President when the decision was made. And i reject the idea that deportation is intrinsically a bad thing.

  9. What’s with the small coverage of Andrew yang.. y’all need to stop hatin if all y’all want is views get him on n you’ll see

  10. Tulsi 2020!! The candidates are pointing out their records not attacking them, thats what a primary is for. We're not supposed to be crowning people….remember??!!

  11. I have to say I really hate all this media coverage saying oh but they're tearing each other down so when they go up against Donald Trump they'll already be torn down… Dude! That's exactly what happened on the Republican side and the guy who got the most torn down is now our president. Stop pretending that actual debates to find out who would best represent us in our broken stupid two-party system is self-defeating. It's only self-defeating because you keep on perpetuating that it's self-defeating.

  12. SURE OBAMA HAD DEPORTED A LOT OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS BUT TO ME THAT IS A GOOD THING! SURE HE DID IT WHILE OUR COUNTRY STILL HADNT FIXED THE IMMIGRATION CRISIS AND MADE A BETTER WAY TO COME TO THIS COUNTRY AND IMMIGRATE LEGALLY BUTTTT HE DAMN SURE WASNT SEPARATING FAMILIES AND CAUSING CHILDREN TO BE FORCED INTO THE SYSTEM WITHOUT ANY CARE ABOUT THEIR WELL BEING!! THEE SADDEST THING I HAVE EVER WITNESSED WAS THAT UNDERCOVER NEWS CLIP OF THAT YOUNG BOY CRYING WISHING THOSE KEEPING HIM CAPTIVE WOULD KILL HIM ALREADY…CHILDREN THAT YOUNG (5 or 6 I think he was) SHOULD NOT BE SUICIDAL…AND IT IS DISGUSTING THAT IT IS A RESULT OF THE WAY OUR COUNTRY HAS TREATED HIM! AND HIS ALONG WITH MANY OTHER CHILDREN THAT WILL BE LEFT BEHIND AND DISAPPEARED INTO THE SYSTEM, THEIR LIVES WILL ONLY GET WORSE AND MORE DEPRESSING…IF THEY SOME HOW AVOID ENDING UP HOMELESSNESS AND JUVENILE DETENTION CENTERS THEY MOST LIKELY WILL END UP SADLY LIVING A LIFE OF CRIME ON THE STREETS AND EVENTUALLY IN PRISON! AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT CONSERVATIVES WANT!!! MORE PEOPLE INCARCERATED…MORE PEOPLE EQUALS CHEAP LABOR AND MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING THE WAY WE ARE TREATING PEOPLE AT THE BORDER ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN! “Hi being that you are a minor of only 6 years of age I the judge over your court proceedings must legally ask do you know why you are here? Do you know what a lawyer is? And have you provided yourself a lawyer to represent you today or will you be representing yourself?” ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! OF COURSE A 6 YEAR OLD DOESNT KNOW WHY THEY ARE THERE, WHAT A LAWYER IS, AND THEY DAMN SURE WOULDNT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MUSTER UP ENOUGH MONEY TO OAY FOR A LAWYER CONSIDERING YOU CHARGE THEM AN INSANE FEE TO GET A PHONE CARD FROM A MACHINE YOU KEEP TURNED OFF AND EVEN IF THESE CHILDREN HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR A TICKET PHONE CARD AND WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES THAT WAS ABLE TO USE THE MACHINE DURING THE VERY LIMITED WINDOW THEY HAVE THEM TURNED ON AND NOT “OUT OF ORDER”(ALL OF THAT TO USE THE PHONE) THE PHONE CALLS COST SEVERAL DOLLARS PER MINUTE…NOW HOW IS A CHILD THAT WAS BROUGHT HERE BY THEIR PARENT SEEKING ASYLUM GOING TO AFFORD A 15-20 MINUTE PHONE CALL TO FIND AND GET IN TOUCH WITH A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND THAT COULD SOMEHOW GET THEM SET UP WITH A LAWYER FOR THEIR HEARING WHICH HAPPEN WITHOUT WARNING…it could be a day, weeks, months…nobody knows when they will be brought forward so how is a lawyer even supposed to be there to help in the first place. IT IS A RIGGED SYSTEM! AND SURE SOME OF THESE PEOPLE SHOULD ACTUALLY PROBABLY BE DEPORTED BUT MOST OF THEM WERE BROUGHT IN THERE UNDER THE MOST MINOR OF REASONS….HELL LEGAL F*CKING CITIZENS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT IN AND BECAUSE MOST LEGAL CITIZENS DONT FEEL THE NEED TO WALK AROUND WITH THEIR BIRTH CERTIFICATE THEY GET BROUGHT IN AND HAVE TO STAY THERE UNTIL THEIR HEARING AND SOMETIMES EVEN AT THAT HEARING BECAUSE THEY COULDNT PRODUCE THE PROPER DOCUMENTATION THEY EITHER GET DEPORTED OR SHOVED BACK INTO THE DETAINEE CENTERS UNTIL THEY CAN GET PROOF BUT MOST JUDGES DONT GIVE AS F*CK ENOUGH TO EVEN BELIEVE THEY ARE LEGAL IN THE FIRST PLACE TO EVEN GIVE THEM TIME TO CONTACT SOMEONE TO BRING THEIR BIRTH CERTIFICATE…AND GOD FORBID THE PERSON WHO BRINGS THEIR CERTIFICATE/DOCUMENTS IS BROWN…THEY WILL BE DETAINED AS WELL..BECAUSE MORE PEOPLE THEY HAVE LOCKED EQUALS MORE MONEY IN THEIR GREEDY DISGUSTING POCKETS! THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT MEETING THEIR NUMBERS AND GETTING IT OVER AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

  13. Do people really say “dipping” in the koolaid and don’t know the flavor? I always said/heard it “all up in the koolaid, and don’t know the flavor”

  14. Well… Noticed who hasn't been (credibly) attacked for anything he's done in 40 years as a public servant? Bernie Sanders. Why don't you Americans just have him on the Democratic ticket?
    He'd trounce Trump handily and I've heard little but good ideas from him which would bring American society up to the high standards we have here in the rest of the Western countries.
    America may even Excel and become world leaders in one of these areas… Good health service for anyone who needs help, no requirements or payments necessary – it's all taken care of through taxes… STEM k-12 education… resolving your homeless, and homeless veteran issue… America has tremendous resources and could, should she decide to, allocate a fraction of her resources around, and become who other countries give the flattery of imitation, modeling their own systems after the world-leading Americans' model.

  15. Anoni Mouse
    I know a lot of people in the comments are upset Andrew Yang isn't mentioned more but you have to remember the Daily Show is a comedy show it's not serious political news program,it's main purpose is to entertain/make us laugh.

  16. These political reality tv stars are not going to help us. Why isnt Andrew mentioned? He is clearly the smartest of the bunch. Honestly, he is going to change the US for good. We need AY in the house!

  17. Seems pretty clear Yang would be a shoo-in for president of the Daily Show =p
    Also, if you want to hear Bernie actually get a chance to talk for more than 15 seconds, Joe Rogan gave him free reign to lay out his plans on JRE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O-iLk1G_ng

  18. Thing i dont understand about these debates, they are mostly debating why they should'nt vote for some other person and not why they should vote on this "x" person, its almost like watching verbal mortal combat…(idno if its only in america but thats where i see it thr most)

  19. "You deep fryin' a chicken and ain't got no skin." 😂😂😂😂….OMG Trevor, I'm gonna use that! Sounds just lyk sum'n my pops woulda said. 🤣

  20. yeah we can go with this party unity bullshit and pick a candidate out of hat, or we can call out the fact that Biden would be indifferent to racial equality, Harris would maintain the culture of throwing problems in jail, Booker would sell our healthcare to the highest bidder, and the bullshit of other candidates so we can make an informed primary decision that won't elect a fundamentally flawed and unwinnable candidate for the party just because they have money and they "deserve" the nomination.

  21. Let me translate what trevor wants stop attacking kamala we choose her for the nomination and ur ruining it shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut

  22. Are Entertainment companies now hiding the videos behind youtubes new paywall? recently I get the bell alarms several times a day, but the videos are not up. What's going on here?

  23. When your only argument is “the white guy is racist”… you don’t have much of an argument. In fact, if racism is at the core of your platform – you’re a weak candidate looking for sheep.

  24. The problem with immigration is that all the politician's are using this platform for there personal gain, immigration needs some tough decisions and finding a way to stop the flow of illegal immigrants coming in to the USA but sadly they want to protect illegal immigrants just so majority of the Hispanic communities can vote for them, see folks it's all about the votes and not about the country 😎

  25. I'm white and I know the Kool aid saying. But to be fair, I heard it a lot at my elementary school, which was predominately black, and I haven't heard it since until now.

  26. Yong is a test. If he wins the election, you can say democracy is still have hopes. if he lose,then you can say,your democracy are never really existed. it is just a ideology,a religion that lie to all human beings. time to make a change.

  27. I was a firm believer of Biden until I kept seeing him on TV. He’s one of those people you see at work and wonder what they are still doing there 🤷‍♀️

  28. Terrible. Terrible. Terrible. Fcking show. This guy is a complete sht face clown. Sad hes still on tv he must be GREAT ! At sucking cocks

  29. The trucks that are in high places will keep mr. Yang from being president it's too good to be true all the old criminals will lose their jobs just like all the criminals that they have created from nothing but more power to you Andrew Yang more power to you & yours
