Tucker Carlson Takes a Sudden Vacation After His Hot Takes on White Supremacy | The Daily Show

Everyone has been talking
about the threat of white supremacy
in the United States. In fact,
even President Trump admits that it’s a major problem. Which is a pretty big deal, ’cause that would be like
if Hobbs & Shaw spoke out against speeding. If Jason Statham came out like, “You know what’s cooler
than driving fast? Going 55 and buckling
your safety belt, innit?” But even though
most people in America have acknowledged the threat,
there is one person who still isn’t convinced. Fox News anchor and concerned face
drawn onto a balloon… -(laughter)
-Tucker Carlson. The whole thing is a lie. If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns,
of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be
on the list? Right up there with Russia,
probably. It’s actually not
a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist
organization in this country would be able to fit inside
a college football stadium. “White supremacy–
that’s the problem.” This is a hoax.
Just like The Russia hoax. It’s a conspiracy theory
used to divide the country and keep a hold on power. That’s exactly what’s going on. Wait, what? White supremacists
aren’t a threat because they can only fill
a college football stadium? My man, those stadiums hold
a hundred thousand people. We shouldn’t have
enough white supremacists to fill a golf cart–
that’s how many we should have. -(cheering, applause) -We’re not
talking about the numbers here. Oh. How many?
How many of them are there? White supremacists
are like babies on a plane– even one is enough
to ruin your day. -(laughter)
-And you do notice, you do notice
that Tucker Carlson only gives white terrorists
this pass. Yeah? Like, after 9/11,
he wasn’t like, “Al-Qaeda? “Please. What was it,
like, 19 people? “Is this a real thing? Huh?
There’s, like, 19 people. Call me when they can sell out
a Knicks game, okay? Uh-huh?” Oh, and it’s
especially interesting that Tucker doesn’t think white
supremacists are a real threat, especially when you look
at all the other threats that he talks about on his show. If you’re looking for threats
to our democracy, how about Silicon Valley? How did we wind up
with a country in which feminists do science? A country where you’re afraid
to touch other people is a country
we don’t want to live in. The way we practice immigration has become dangerous
to this country. Kneeling during
our National Anthem, you know, the basic symbol
of our country, it’s an attack
on the United States. Almost every nation on earth has fallen under the yoke
of tyranny: the metric system. The metric system.
(gasps) The metric system
is a threat to America but white supremacy is a hoax? Yo, I feel like Tucker Carlson would tell the lamest
campfire stories of all time. He’s just be like, “And then
she heard a scratching sound “coming from inside the door, and when she turned around,
it was centimeters.” (laughter) Now, apparently soft-pedaling
white supremacy didn’t go over well
with everybody. In fact, three big advertisers
pulled out of Tucker Carlson’s show
after he said that. -And…
-(cheers and applause) And… something tells me his bosses at Fox News
didn’t like what he said because, the very next day, he made a surprise announcement
at the end of his show. That’s it for us tonight. Tune in every night at 8:00 p.m. to the the shown that is
the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity and smugness
and group think. By the way,
I am taking several days off, headed to the wilderness to fish with my son,
catch some brook trout. Politics is important,
fishing with your son sometimes more important,
so I’m doing it. Okay. Oh, that timing seems suspicious
but who knows, maybe lots of people leave
for fishing vacations on Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. I mean, you never know when the fish
are gonna start biting. You never know. And I know some people will say,
“Come on, Trevor, “this is probably just
a coincidence, okay? “Just because Tucker said
something offensive “and then took
a surprise vacation doesn’t mean these two things
are related.” Okay, maybe not, but it does seem to happen
a lot over at Fox. Sudden vacation announcements have been a go-to move
for Trump TV. Last March, Laura Ingraham
announced a vacation after coming under fire for mocking Parkland survivor
David Hogg. Sean Hannity went on vacation
after advertisers fled over his promotion
of a conspiracy theory that exploited the death
of DNC staffer Seth Rich. Jesse Watters took time off
after criticism over a lewd comment
about Ivanka Trump. You go in, like, hard enough,
they drop the ball. -It’s perfect. -Very good.
-Yeah, you’re welcome. I’m glad he didn’t
run them over. Also, I’m gonna be taking
a vacation with my family so I’m not gonna be here
tomorrow and Friday, but I’ll be back on Monday, so
try not to miss me too much. BOOTHE: (clears throat)
Saturday also? (laughter) My favorite part
is how all the Fox hosts try to casually slip it in to
random conversation, you know? Sort of like how you used
to buy condoms in high school. You’d just be like,
“Yeah, let me get a, “a bag of the Doritos
and a pack of the condoms… (speaking rapidly
and indistinctly) And the cashier’s like,
“Jerry, bring me over “a box of condoms
for the kid, please. I’m gonna say extra small!” (audience reacts) So almost everyone on Fox has had to go
on a surprise vacation after saying something
controversial, but there’s one vacation on Fox that is the greatest
of all time. HAYES: Bill O’Reilly
took what he insisted was a pre-planned vacation
after revelations he had settled multiple
sexual harassment allegations. Finally time for Factor
Tip of the Day often around this time of year, I grab some vacation because
it’s spring and Easter time. Last fall, I booked a trip
that should be terrific. Not gonna tell you where it is. I’ll have a full report
when I return. HAYES:
And he never returned. (laughter) (cheers and applause) Oh, man. And he never returned. Doesn’t sound like a guy
going on vacation, it sounds like a guy
who got whacked by the mob. (Italian accent): “Yeah,
let’s just say O’Reilly’s “gonna be going on
a permanent vacation. I’m Chris Cuomo.
Thanks for watching CNN.” (cheers and applause) (normal voice):
And I… I also feel really bad
for that one Fox viewer who’s still waiting
for O’Reilly to return. ‘Cause you know there’s one
person watching TV like, “Bill’s gonna have so many great
stores stories “when he finally comes back. I bet he went to Machu Picchu.” Honestly, these emergency
vacations have become such a staple
for Fox News hosts, I wouldn’t be surprised if they
had their own travel agency. ANNOUNCER: Are you tired
of the hustle and bustle of being dropped
by advertisers? Want to get away because
your bosses say you have to? Then you need Fox Vacations, the travel agency
for Fox News hosts in trouble. We’ll lift you off
in the dead of night and bring you to
an isolated spot where you can rant in peace. Hang ten while spreading
murder conspiracies. Mock shooting survivors between
rounds of beach volleyball, or just share your views on
white genocide with the fish. Plus, call now for our
special Forever Vacation. You’ll have so much fun,
you won’t want to go back, which is great,
because you can’t. Fox Vacations. Relax,
this will all blow over. (cheers and applause) Have a great trip, guys.

  1. He's right and you're going after him when he can't reply. Now apply your analysis to Muslims. Also, your accents are cringe.

  2. What is it with republicans and always contradicting themseles…and not even realziing that they do it lots

  3. …and in a year of metric system and you'd be wondering why the hell you used to have this weird system of miles, feets and ounces.. There is a reason that scientist use the metric system, it's easy and makes sense. To me, but yeah, I have lived with metric system my whole life. Still I argue that you'd learn it quickly. 1km is 1,6 miles and so on, How many cm is a feet? Does your measuring sticks have what? Inches, feets? We have centimetres, 10cm is a 1desim and 10dm is 1m and 1000m is a kilometer and 1000 kilometres is a ton of walking. The same measuring ratio works with weight also. Easy peasy, never felt threatened by it!

  4. White supremacist are a hoax today just like the KKK was a hoax Neo Nazi was a hoax or Hitler or Pol Pot or Stalinism or Mass Murder or what ever else is in your head of hoaxes Tucker…… Tucker are you going too get fired?

  5. The things people at FOX do for a check. They over do it tryna please their boss even the Boss was like NO! this is too much…

  6. When you see the intellect of Fox Anchors, you can envision their viewers. They'd bite any apple with a worm. Truly, the enemy of America, Fox News. Oh, and all five other networks too. In fact, I would give each of them life without parole.

  7. You have become such a non funny quack Trevor. Race baiting nonsense and identity politics is ruining shows and ratings..tick tock!

  8. The oath of tyranny: the metric system.
    That's right Tucker, that sacred system of measurement which was originally based on the length of Her (or His) Royal Highness's foot (hence the term – foot), was not tyranny.
    Once some brilliant Muslim bitch working out of Silicon Valley patents the world's first working time machine, she should put you in it and send you back to where you belong – the 17th Century. There would be countless royal asses for you to kiss everywhere you look…

  9. Absolutely nailed it so awesomely!
    Bunch of hypocrites at FOX Channel have been brainwashing idiots for their idiocracy.

  10. ISIS was around 70,000 at their highest numbers. Same with Al Quada during the Bush Administration. But somehow Tucker still managed to believe stopping them was very important and he and Fox News wouldn't shut up about them at all for over a decade, so …

  11. If it is such a โ€œbigโ€ problem then why canโ€™t anyone show some proper examples or evidence for it…?

    I mean really… Where are all those people that are so incredibly dumb that they think skin pigmentation has any effect on your cognitive development.

  12. Female scientists = threat to the country. Black Congress woman = threat to the country. People oppose police violence = threat to the country. A white supremacist in the White House and white supremacist terror attacks = hoax. As soon as a Rep. calls something a hoax, you know that it's a major problem.

  13. I wish all of those Fox "News" pundits would all take permit vacations … from life. Bunch of racist Un-American idiots! #FauxNews

  14. I love how at 2:12 they're zooming in on the football players' butts. You got something to tell us, Fox?
    Also, I wouldn't mind if some of the Fox "news" hosts took a permanent vacation. And by some I mean all.

  15. Fucker Cuntson thinks everything is a hoax. Yeah, his life is a hoax. He seems so troubled living, maybe he should end it sooner.

  16. Trever please take up Kashmir issue. It's been 10 days since curfew and communication lockdown. People are starving and running out of food supplies.

  17. Is it just me or does it look like those people are being tread like naughty 5 year olds who've misbehaved in class and are sent into the corner for a timeout ?? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†.

  18. I trust Russians less than white supremacist, and I believe all those whites need to kill themselves. Tucker Carlson is not an American. He should be involuntarily exiled to Russia. Let's just leave him in a Russian forest in winter with no clothes, it will do America some good.

  19. I mean,okay, sending them away is one thing. But they usually do come back right?
    So this mean this vacation ploy is really just FOX news way to get around admitting that they did wrong and not apologise to their viewer ship. They may silently slap on the hand of their hosts but they still don't go back on their statements.


  21. as a liberal humanist the problem I have with some peoples take on this is that their go to response is to say tucker carlson is some form of white supremacist and that in my world view is wrong and is intellectually lazy and while he might very well be wrong I do not think we should simplify that kind of topic down to a disagreement in the importance of the topic it just means he has a difference of view but I will also go one step further and say their are white supremacist just as their are idiots and have always been idiots and trying to end racism completely is about as likely as trying to end daytime tv would it be nice yes is it possible no.

  22. Tucker carlson is the only news editor who actually says something reasonable while others are just comedians like this trevor dude who gets caught multiple times .

  23. White supremacist Trump started racism against Obama,when he became the first African-American president ! He questioned Obama's eligibility and birth. He taunted Obama with,"show your birth certificate !" to prove his citizenship. However,what is worst is that Trump stubbornly refuses to,"show his tax returns". In reality,he has lots of skeletons to hide,especially fraudulent business deals. American banks avoided financing Trump Organisation and he had to source for funds from other countries.

  24. Dude said White Supremacy is as big of a problem as Russia ๐Ÿ˜’. Russia has been one of the biggest antagonists to America since WW2 ended. Cold war or not. Dude is out of his mind. How is he on tv?

  25. How about you start talking about the threat of Antifa?

    I remember when Antifa showed up at Tucker Carlsons house. So called "white supremacists" have never showed up to any Democrats house in decades, so why not call out the Left on their violence and intolerance?

    The truth is white supremacists number less than 10,000 in the entire USA. They are not powerful, they have no systemic power, and no public support. They are not a big deal and do not deserve the national attention they are getting. I am so tired of these lies.

  26. Yes, Carlson is right, white supremacy would be up on the list near or next to Russia.
    It would probably go like
    1. Climate catastrophe
    2. The really shady, unethical things corporations do. (I mean systemic stuff in the economy and politics)
    3. The *really shady*, unethical things rich people do. (I mean systemic stuff in the economy and politics)

    4. Healthcare
    5. Gun control
    6. Education
    7. Russia
    8. China
    9. White supremacy / racism (all of it)
    10. Iran
    11. Saudi Arabia
    12. North Korea
    13. Whatever jaw droppingly shitty thing a company or federal body does that John Oliver highlights in Last Week Tonight next.

  27. It seems to be Trevor Noah is not hillarious but the audience still laugh at those 'un-hillarious' part

  28. Just look at that face of the Fox's guy, immdly you know he is a racist. Who said you cannot judge a book by the cover.

  29. Fox News knows how to have us talking . They see what we see but for ratings they say stupid shit trump loves them for that

  30. Tucker makes more sense than you Trevor. You just cut small small clips and ur paid audience cheered nothing new here

  31. Oh NO!!! Not The Metric System!. Ol'tucker just spewing nonsensical disinformation again to the public .. Fox News thinks jesus trump does no bad..its disgusting.
