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.

  • D' Maverick

    Who is the most hated Republican President between the 2? Abe Lincoln or Don Trump?
    Clue he was so hated, that the Southern States seceded from the Union!

  • J P

    Idk why democrats are celebrating? Hes still your president. This will never pass senate. He still get to run re-election in 2020. This will give more fire power to trump administration. He can claim all fake news. But what do i know🤷🏻‍♂️. Best of luck to you all

  • Steve Wisniewski

    So this really means nothing? It’s just more of our politicians on either side of the aisle wasting our tax payer dollars to make another person look bad. What are we actually accomplished as a patient through this process, anything? Has it helped our education process especially for our children? Has it paid for more hospitals? Is it paid for building and promoting new infrastructure within the US? If anything it’s paid for the US military machine and embarrass the shit out of us internationally but don’t forget about us that live here and are represented by this corrupt nonsensical political farce from all sides. Don’t they have a job to do and put forward things that we need to help our own people as opposed to themselves to be reelected? Our government is a joke and has been for such a long time. I’m ashamed, I’m proud to be an American but I’m ashamed to not tell people where I’m from. My family comes from a long history of service of all types to our nation and our own people, not even there embarrassed if not rolling over in their resting place. We have to figure out how to move aside and stop the blame game.

  • Shu kujo

    The people who are defending Trump by incessantly saying, "He's committed no crime, where's the evidence? He's innocent!" – as if they don't know perfectly well that the POTUS doesn't have to do anything illegal to be impeached. Those are the same people who were leading the impeachment assault against Clinton, and all he did was what most guys do when cornered about their wayward penile activity. All he did was initially fib about it.

  • Richard Dastrup

    The best news of the day is President Donald Trump is still CNN President . The best news of the day is Nunes is suing CNN. The best news of the day is the sex scandals exposed on a CNN network who has no credibility.

  • Jason Popp

    A day that will go down as worthless waste of time.
    I'd also like to point out to your followers that Trump HAS NOT BEEN INPEACHED. Also the Senate will dismiss this and he will be reelected.

  • Margaret Opine

    Could it be possible that the republicans are allowing partisan members to speak jargon that will cost them the election in 2020??? OR, could it be clear to us now just how juvenile the republican party is? I mean the grade of quality in their speech is so juvenile and the facts are so twisted and untrue. The intent is to speak to an audience and a base that is perceived and believed to be unintelligent and unbridled but to be downright lead-able to any shape and form while gaining very little. WE, THE PEOPLE, WHO CARE ABOUT OUR DEMOCRACY AND HAVE HOPES TO MAKE IT BETTER AND BETTER BY WORKING TOGETHER AT TIMES LIKE THIS TO MAKE A CLEAR STATEMENT NOT ONLY TO OURSELVES BUT TO CANDIDATES IN THE FUTURE AND TO THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD THAT AMERICA INTENDS TO HEAL AND RISE UP FROM HERE…..NEVER=EVER FORGETTING THIS VERMIN CACHE OF LITTLE MEN.

  • Shoshanna Nina

    How Jesus got into this. My God these Republicans will go to any levels defending Trump. My word! If most voters think for themselves this would backfire but we know most voters are sheep.

  • SCOTT Kraemer

    Personally I'm sick of him saying read the transcripts. By now everyone who can read, has read them Dotard. It's your base that hasn't read them not can read them

  • Ay Nano

    I never voted for him and never liked his tweets but I think he kept the economy going. How sure are we if the one stepping in the hole is as capable to move the economy forward?
    He's not a politician, he's a businessman. Just like many business men loved business talk.

  • Condorman

    This is just Propaganda. You might like Trump or hate him, don't let your thinking be directed by what THEY tell you! Think for yourself! Research!

  • Andrê Visser

    President Trump is the best president USA had for many years, someone with the guts to stand up for his beliefs and go against satan and his cronies.

    This will only make Trump stronger than before, God bless and protect him.

    MAGA!
    (From South Africa.)

  • Gabrielle Gadley

    This video does show how the Dems and Mainstream Media get their marching orders together…"Historic day…it was a historic day…this will go down in history as a historic day"…"with sadness…we are so sad…it's a somber day…we have no joy in this, he gave us no choice." What a bunch of pre-planned hooey! What a bunch of bull-Schiff! They hate this guy because he's beating them repeatedly at every turn, and they are tired of him winning! He's so unconventional, and they can't take it! Good luck with the next 4 years of Trump, as he beats Hillary again when she comes out at the last second to run again due to the pathetic losers that are on stage now trying to gain a vote.

  • winnie

    Don't be sad, be afraid of the tyrant we get after he is acquitted. Trump will think he can get away with anything. And he will try.

  • Hotsun 108

    Whoever wrote that speech linking Pearl Harbor to this sad display of political rhetoric should be burned for standing on the grave of those that died tragically during that event.

  • JS Mariani

    Poor Trump didn't get a fair trial in the house. The Rs didn't get a chance to have input. A bunch of traitorous lying witnesses. Right!?!?!?! Of course, the house is more like a grand jury. One thing is for sure; during his actual trial, he'll be acquitted – assuming Nancy decides to move the impeachment process to the Senate.

  • Draap Squad

    Funny how out of touch you liberals are. Trump is gonna win in a landslide in 2020. I will be sure to return and gloat about it too. KAG 2020!

  • Aim Smith

    America didn't move anything anywhere. The radical democrat party took advantage of their House majority status to go against the wishes and best interest of the American people.

  • Jay M

    Remember all the democrats literally in tears when Trump won the election? Don't forget what led him to be elected – what Obama did to healthcare, and gushing American money to countries that absolutely hate and despise America. And his grand solution to the illegal immigrants, just grant them citizenship since they're already here. Reward them for illegally trespassing. But oh yeah, Liberals HATE facts.

  • Riyad Yusuf Harun

    Of course democrats are happy he's impeached, for the last 3 years he's done atrocious things and faced zero repercussions while everyone around him gets locked up. I'm surprised republicans continue supporting him; the longer Trump's in office the more people associated with him get sentenced.

  • ailpaysthebills

    I hate it to break it to all delusional democrats, but the articles haven’t been sent to the senate and it will get thrown out because it’s a weak case. He will get acquitted and re-elected. Truth

  • Steve Cole

    So trump hijacked his own impeachment train heading to his imprisonment. McConnell says Give me the accelerator while trump screams Choo! Choo!

  • Lady Lady

    In no way is Trump's impeachment is analogous to what Jesus endured. Jesus Christ suffered and died. What happened to Trump is self inflicted and the result of criminal behavior. Republicans get your facts straight. You all know better. Stop blaspheming! Your dumbass, ignorant of the Constitution, criminal leader is guilty. Period!!!

  • musani nlebesi

    It's comedy so I'll take it at face value but honestly when you're extremely one-sided it just doesn't make your argument seem educated.

  • Erika Kathleen

    Articles of Impeachment is a joke. Not impeached. Invalid until Senate confirms. Its a done deal charade. Senate will toss fraud articles of false impeachment out on its deranged democrat smelly pig ass. Dentures? That's, slobbering, stuttering, stammering drunk Pelosi. We love Christmas and we are all smiling and joyful as we have won again and again, over and over again while you depraved, fugly, slop DNA, envious as hell, scumbag, fraud perpetrating deceivers inevitably always lose and lose some more.

  • Mogollon Treasure Hunters

    How many of those Hypocrits were themselves or had loved ones on the battlefield, who I was to be available for regarding the weapons I worked on for our American and Allied forces to the tune of 380000+ troops, NOT counting a single fully present and fully engaged Navy and Air Force presence…and instead I was held against my will for 12 to 14 hours in the Trump Taj Mahal and my room was unlockable nor did help arrive and lesbian porn was blasted on my large screen TV the entire time. My husband was missing as well and we were there on our honeymoon. I have never been silent about this nor have I ever been invited to testify… instead several attempts have been made against my life and my family's lives as well and that's just the tip of the iceberg. I was followed onto Ft Huachuca and recorded having my life threatened if I 'didn't go along with the program'. Luckily, I had several witnesses there as well… ON A US MILITARY BASE while as a contractor through GDIT, I supported 2 different signal brigades in the netcom command center…
