Obama Lights Up Donald Trump | The Daily Show

There are many debates in life
that don’t really have answers. Could LeBron have beaten
Michael Jordan? Could Mike Tyson have beaten
Muhammad Ali? Could Bert beat Ernie? I know they’re friends, but there’s real anger there,
folks. And, of course, one
of the biggest questions of all: could Donald Trump
have beaten Obama in a race? Not a footrace. We know
the answer to that question. A campaign race. And we’ll never really know. But thanks to this year’s
midterm elections, we get to see what
a race between the two of them might have been like. Because this weekend,
with just eight days… with just eight weeks. Not eight days. You guys
are like, “Eight days away? It’s not eight days away.” Yeah. Because this weekend, with just eight weeks
until voting day, the former president decided it was time
to get back in the ring. Tonight, Trump versus Obama. The former president
blasting his successor by name in a rare and fiery
midterm message. By the time I left office, household income
was near its all-time high, and the uninsured rate
had hit an all-time low, and wages were rising,
and poverty rates were falling. I mention all this
just so when you hear how great the economy’s doing
right now, let’s just remember
when this recovery started. (cheering and applause) Oh! You guys… you guys realize
what this means, right? It’s on. President Obama
versus President Trump. The leader versus the tweeter. Yes We Can versus way too tan. And you know Donald Trump’s
not gonna stand by and let someone take credit
for their own achievements. No, no, no.
He’s gonna push back, and he’s gonna do it with flair. So… I have a list, and the list goes on and on. It’s four pages of things
that the Trump administration has accomplished
in a short period of time. Each dot is a thing, okay? And some of those things
are very big things. And then I have
three more pages, two more pages just like this. Look. Okay? But isn’t this much… isn’t this much more exciting than listening
to President Obama speak? Yeah, I guess. I guess this is exciting– the same way
I’m sure it was exciting to be on the plane that Sully
landed on the Hudson River. It was like,
“I think we’re all gonna be die, but it’s gonna be a movie!” Because seeing Trump and Obama
back-to-back really shows the contrast
between these two. Right? They couldn’t
be more different. It’s like night and day,
like ebony and anarchy. I mean, listen… listen to how they each talked
about health care. Their sabotage
of the Affordable Care Act has already cost more
than three million Americans their health insurance. And if they’re still in power
next fall, you better believe
they’re coming at it again. “What happens,” I said,
“if the entire world “decides to go to California “because they get
free health care, free medical care
and free education?” California
has just increased in size to 500 million people. (audience shouting indistinctly) California has just become
one really large person. What you talkin’ ’bout, Willis? I’ve heard a lot of criticisms
about Obamacare, but I can safely say
I’ve never heard that it’s gonna morph a state into a very giant person. -Like…
-(cheering and applause) like, what does that even mean? And… and while, while most people
would prefer a president who’s articulate
and has a command of the issues, there are times
when you have to admit it’s definitely more fun
to watch Trump. Each time we painstakingly pull
ourselves closer to our founding ideals, that all of us
are created equal, the status quo pushes back. Sometimes the backlash
comes from people who are genuinely, if wrongly, fearful of change. He said, uh, “What’d you think
of President Obama’s speech?” And I said,
“I-I’m sorry. I watched it, but I fell asleep.” (laughter, whooping) I found he’s very good, very good for sleeping. I-I hate to say it,
but Donald Trump is right. Obama is great for sleeping. Because when he was president, we all slept so good. -So good.
-(cheering and applause) But now,
now that Trump’s in charge, we all lie in bed awake
every night trying to figure out how the (bleep) California
turned into a giant man. Does he get one vote
in the Senate? All the people inside of him, did they leave
before it happened? So many questions!
I can’t sleep! And, now, look,
Trump may have beaten Obama on the entertainment part,
but when both men commented on last week’s secret house–
White House op-ed in The New York Times,
it is safe to say that Obama beat Trump
on the English part. There are people
inside the White House who secretly aren’t following
the president’s orders. (laughter, applause) That is not a check. They’re not doing us a service by actively promoting 90%
of the crazy stuff that’s coming out of this
White House and then saying, “Don’t worry, we’re preventing
the other ten percent.” The latest act of resistance is the op-ed published
in the failing New York Times by an anomish, really, an anomynish, gutless coward. (laughter) (whooping) Yo. Yo. I can honestly listen
to Trump try to say “anomynish” for the rest of my life. It sounds look
a dope new Migos track. Just like…
♪ Monymish ♪ ♪ Mamaminin, amonymish ♪ ♪ Amonamymish,
anomamonamymish. ♪ And, please, please, don’t get
me wrong, don’t get me wrong. Obama’s not always
in professor mode, right? When he needs to, he knows
how to hit Trump where it hurts. We’re supposed to stand up
to discrimination. And we’re sure as heck
supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally
to Nazi sympathizers. (cheering and applause) How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad? (laughter) Yeah! Obama’s got a good point. Just say it, Trump.
Nashis are– Sorry. Nashis are– I guess there’s
fine people on both sides. Look, I’ll be honest.
I don’t know why Obama’s wasting
his intellect on Trump. Like, we’re living
in Trump’s world now, right? This is not the time
for some well-crafted speech that appeals
to our higher nature. This is time for a roast, Obama. Obama should just be
on the campaign trail dissing Trump every day.
’Cause Trump knows how to deal with nerds. But what
he can’t handle is swag. Yeah. Obama should just be
out there, like, “Uh, this guy, uh,
can’t even say ’anonymous.’ “Uh, I remember when presidents
could speak the language of the countries
they were from.” (cheering and applause) He should just roast him! (stammers) He should–
he should just be like, be like, “Uh, Trump-Trump’s presidency,
uh, such a disaster, “it makes me glad I still have
my Kenyan citizenship. “Uh, and, uh, “and did you folks,
uh, read the op-ed? “Uh, nobody respects this guy. “Uh, I bet they don’t
even take his orders “at the McDonald’s
drive-through. “Uh, he says, ’Uh, I’ll have
the Chicken McNuggets.’ They say, ’Bitch,
you’re getting the salad.’”

  3. I voted Obama but he lied. He was a horrible president the economy was not at an all time.e high. It was horrible. Obama is a war criminal. Fkkk Trump too

  4. The people behind the current president though…..look at their faces as he puts letters together to make sound. Hilarious.

  5. Trump is by far the most dumbest president we have ever had.He can't speak and when he does no one can understand what the hell he's talking about not even the smart people that supports him.So does this mean they are like him, some dumbasses to,I'm only asking.


  7. is Trump being like Gendo…
    oh… i get it… he's a fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion…..
    morphing a state onto one person….
    and he doesn't like his kid either….

  8. Trump is so jealous that a black man is better educated than thim who was assisted by his father.obama is class one of the best president and trump is a dump.vote trump out or AMERICA will suffer when trump become a dictator. That would be end of america.sad.

  9. Each "dot"…. Each "DOT"… y'all Donald Trump can't read. Remember when we had a president who was intelligent and could read? Our own president cannot read… release his transcripts!! Did he really go to college? #TwoCorinthians

  10. Now with Trumputin, and the GOP Greedy Oligarch Puppets, who WORSHIP, Trump. the USA has gone from CLASS, to CRASS, Intellect to Ignorant, Dignity to Depravity, Honor to Horror, Compassion, to Disdain, Conscience, to Lack of Conscience Moral to Amoral, Christian to Anti Christian. Where has the American spirit gone? How do those who LOVE Trump justify their BLIND LOYALTY to their FALSE MESSIAH? Trump displays NO Christlike qualities, as do those of the White Evangelical, denominations.

  11. For the rest of my life, you're my favorite comedian PERSON. You're truly healing in the dark world of politics.♥️

  12. Hell no between you and President Obama We pick our favorite President of all time President Barack Obama we will remember #44 with genuine administration and love now 45 we will try and forget before he is indicted

  13. The population of California according to Google is 39.56 million souls as of 2018. 500 million, I loved the sound of the crowd after he said 500 million. Mr President sir "Saying something is something doesn't make something something ". Remember we talked about that this morning in the big room with the army guys?.

  14. If we get free health care people are going to come running from other countries to take advantage of it? He does realize other countries HAVE FREE CARE ALREADY??

  15. The whole world is laughing at the U.S. Look how special they are! Ha!Ha! But one must admire the American media who ensured that a crooked father-and-son team are not even discussed. The media has behaved in an impeccable brethern relationship. By the way, who is that man with the evil-looking eyes who seems to be the chief in the House?

  16. trump didn't stop watching President Obama speech, because President Obama is always in trumps head !!!
    He is so jealous of President Obama it's making trump crazier everyday !!!!

  17. As far as I am aware,Trump hasn't snuffed out anyone yet.When Obama was in power he managed to snuff out two,Qaddafi and Bin Laden for crimes probably committed by his own countrymen

  18. I agree with the look of that plaid shirt guy…this genius can't pronounce this word and this is the baby in chief? What a bantering loser!

  19. So, the democratic party speach writers need to get with The Daily Show writers? The presidential roast through debates needs to happen!

  20. America so Racist that they would rather have a Dumb president like Trump, rather than an intellectual Leader full of class like Obama just because of his color. .

  21. 500.000.000 people moved to California I live in Fremont CA bay area I had no idea I have so many neighbors SMH🤭🤣🤣🤣

  22. Trump's about to add another accomplishment to that long list of his, and if we're lucky it will turn out to be a first – removal from office.

  23. Obama speaks so eloquently that Trump doesn't understand, so he falls asleep! People only stay awake during Trump's speech, because they wonder what in the hell is going to come out of his mouth next!

  24. Health care are the situation of all democracies in Europe, is a right and almost for free. Education, basic education is free, only University has a cost, but affordable to everyone. Just check it.

  25. Obama has more class and integrity in his little finger than Trump has in his whole body!!Trump is an embarrassment and has no integrity , what a narcissistic nightmare he is to this country; Most of the 39.75 million residents in California don't want you here!!!

  26. Melania Trump says her prayers every night before going to bed but she is still surprised to see trump alive in the morning.

  27. Trump made me think: what type of people would elect a person like him to be the President of the United States….. The President of the U.S. should be an example of this country; in some sense even an idol for many. But what type of people would treat Trump as his or her idol? If majority of the people still support him, what kind of country would the U.S. become moving forward…

  28. Its really sad when u have a president that puts up paperwork in the air and say you see all these things i did and really big things two. Oh my gosh did he just do that. And then describe a states as a really big person. Oh my gosh how embarrassing this is, its like hes a child still learning about there ABC & 123. He is really embarrassing. America has been through way to much to be sitting here dealing and taking this foolishness from this man.

    And i also wonder if he's really talking in front of a group of people. If they are real! There dumb just like him. And should be fiiiiiirrrrreeeeddddd.⚰😆
