Trump’s Weird One-on-One with George Stephanopoulos | The Daily Show


One of the things that makes
President Trump so unique is the
way he interacts with the media.
He doesn’t give many traditional
press conferences, you know?
He mostly just shouts
at reporters
in front of a helicopter
or takes a few questions
when he’s with a foreign leader
or, his favorite,
just shares policy ideas
at the drive-through.
Just like,
“Let me get a burger.
“No lettuce, no pickles,
and no deal with Iran!”
It’s like, “Okay, sir.
Do you want fries with that?”
“The Iran deal?”
“No, sir, the burger.”
“Okay, ’cause if the Iran deal
comes with fries,
I would be open to negotiating!”
But what’s also interesting
about Donald Trump
is, sometimes,
he’ll switch things up
and he’ll give one reporter
total access to him
for an entire day.
And the latest example was with
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
And one thing we learned
from this interview
was that Trump may not like
intelligence briefings
or cabinet meetings
or reading in general,
but he loves giving tours.
The Oval Office
is such a special place.
Show us around.
Famous desk.
TRUMP:
Oh, that’s a very famous desk.
That’s the Resolute desk.
You have your choice
of seven desks.
They have seven desks.
They give you pictures of desks.
They give you
pictures of carpet.
-This is the Ronald Reagan
carpet. -Mm-hmm.
They give you pictures
of the drapes.
You see the drapes?
They say–
I think we have 12 sets
of drapes we can use.
Here’s your new Air Force One.
Gonna look incredible.
It’s gonna look sleeker.
What’s the biggest personal
touch you’ve put on the office?
I’ve put a lot of ’em.
Uh, the flags.
You didn’t have flags
to any great degree.
(laughter)
It’s like the-the weirdest
episode of MTV Cribs.
“Yeah, you know,
these are my flags.
Yeah, yeah.
This is my desk.”
That is a lot of flags though,
right?
And it seems innocent.
But when you think
about what Trump does
to flags in public,
I don’t even want to imagine
what he does when they’re alone.
Yeah. Those flags
were probably like,
“Stephanopoulos,
take us with you!
Please, Stephanopoulos, please.”
Trump spends so much time
showing George Stephanopoulos
around
you’d think that he was looking
to sublet the Oval Office.
But since he had a member
of the fake news media there,
he also used the opportunity
to hit back at them
and their phony reporting.
I watched your show
this morning.
I watched Good Morning America.
And they had, uh, something
about, uh, the polling.
And it’s really suppression
polling. It’s fake polling.
But, in that case,
it was just made-up polling.
-And I had– I-I had
the same thing… -Made-up?
Made-up. I mean
they give you phony numbers.
They give you numbers.
They said that
they have access to numbers,
which I don’t believe
they have access to.
Trump basically treats polls
the way some people treat
their bathroom scales.
You know? Yeah, when
you’re happy with the number,
you’re like,
“Yeah, this is science.
“I mean, that’s what I weigh.
I mean, this-this technology.”
But if the number
is not what you want it to be,
then you’re like, “This is–
This shit is going back
“to Bed Bath & Beyond!
“That’s not– that’s not right.
“That’s not right.
Is this pounds or kilograms?”
Unfortunately for Trump though,
there’s one poll that he
couldn’t blame the media for,
because it was done
by his own campaign.
REPORTER: The Trump campaign’s
internal polling shows
the president trailing
former Vice President Joe Biden
in critical
battleground states:
39% to 55% in Pennsylvania,
41% to 51% in Wisconsin,
and by 7 points in Florida.
CBS News has learned
the Trump campaign fired
several pollsters
after those internal
polling numbers were leaked.
(laughter)
Oh, man.
So Trump learns
that he’s behind in the polls,
and he responds
by firing his pollsters.
Which makes sense to me.
It’s like how I used
to have Ebola
but then I fired my doctor,
so I don’t have Ebola anymore.
Yeah. I’m just a regular guy
who pees out of his butt.
My favorite moment
from this interview,
my favorite moment,
was when Trump talked
about releasing his tax returns.
Not because I think
he’ll actually release them.
At this point, it’s more likely
that he’ll release an album
of duets with Hillary Clinton.
No.
What made this thing interesting
was that,
while Trump was talking,
someone in the background
coughed.
And just watch what happens
after that.
They’re after
my financial statement.
The Senate. They’d like to get
my financial statement.
At some point,
I hope they get it.
-You’re gonna turn it over?
-No, at some point–
I might. But, at some point,
I hope they get it,
’cause it’s a financ– it’s
a fantastic financial statement.
It’s a fantastic
financial statement.
And– L-Let’s do that over.
-He’s coughing in the middle
of my answer. -Yeah.
-(chuckles): Okay.
-I don’t like that, you know?
-I don’t like that.
-Your chief of staff.
TRUMP: If you’re gonna cough,
please leave the room.
MAN: Get a shot of–
You know, I’ll come over here.
-Just… -You just can’t–
you just can’t cough.
-Just to change the shot.
-Okay. -Boy, oh, boy.
Sorry, Mr. Trump.
Okay, do you want to do that
a little differently then or…?
-Yeah, we just changed
the angle. -Okay.
-Yeah. Thank you.
-So, at some point…
So, at some point,
I look forward to–
Frankly, I want–
I’d like to have people see
my financial statement,
-because it’s phenomenal.
-It’s up to you.
Yo, are you serious?
It’s like a real-life episode
of The Office.
He’s looking at the camera.
The camera’s going over.
I half-expected Dwight
to pop up onscreen
and just shake his head.
(laughter, applause)
But you have to give it
to Trump.
He might not be
a good president,
but he is a fantastic
television professional.
He knows his angles. He’s giving
them different line readings.
He’s changing it up.
“They’re coming
“for my precious tax returns,
and I–
“Wait, who’s coughing?!
“All right,
let me take that again.
“They’re coming
for my precious tax returns.
All right, that was the one,
that was the one.”
And, by the way, I don’t think
it was a coincidence
that his chief of staff
just “happened to cough”
right when Trump was talking
about releasing his tax returns.
Yeah, that didn’t sound
like a real cough.
It sounded more like a…
(coughing): “Shut the (bleep) up
about your taxes.”
That’s what that was.
(cheering and applause)
So,
that was Trump’s one-on-one
with ABC.
And, really,
this makes it clear
why he doesn’t do interviews
very often.
Because, in one interview,
he contradicted himself
on the polls,
he flipped out
at his coughing staff,
and, worst of all,
he somehow managed
to look shorter
than George Stephanopoulos.
So I think it’s safe to say
tomorrow’s interview
will be back
at the drive-through.

    Indian Prime Ministry also like to do non political interviews. Talk about mangos and other cooking recipes.

  • Saul Henrichs

    You know how stupid you think Trump is? Guess what, it's actually Trevor Noah who is the idiot. You're just blinded by bias and very ignorant regarding politics/history.

  • ikram Khan

  • Kenem_j Sissoko

    I think he had memorized the answers that is why the cough had interrupted him. Just think about it for minute.

  • gator man

    Why is he talking to the"Fake news"? He branded them as"fake news" but yet, he talks to them and when he opens his mouth and gets caught in a lie, he tells another lie.

  • The Gator

    It would be one thing if trumps policies were offensive, but undeniably effective. But no, it’s like he thinks of the right thing to do, and tries to do the exact opposite. It’s plain, STUPID. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself left or right, stupid is, in fact, just STUPID. Use yo brains motherfuckers

  • Ray bassman

    You got your head up it. before you tell more lies about PRESIDENT Trump, Look at the huge loads of corruption in your own party, Hillary, Wasserman, Pelosi and more. Hillary with russian colusion selling 20% of U.S. urainium to Russia, what Wasserman did to Seth. Pelosi taking a huge bribe from EL CHAPO to try to keep the border open, just for starters..pizzagate..ect.

  • D. D.

    You know why he did that when that guy coughed because he lost his train of thought and he wanted to blame someone else that’s a pathetic person in the White House

  • DesignerVids22

    Trump: "They give you…"

    Who are "They"? Trump is confirming there's a shadow government running the show. He's a puppet!

  • Marvin Crooker

    His stupidity is mind numbing. At one point he said he hoped people can see his taxes. But he doesn't know if they will.

  • kgoldfish :D

    The other day my friend was looking through the newspaper and she said
    Her: Ugh look at that greasy little bitch
    Me: who?
    Her: our president
    pause
    Her: how sad is that
    the GREASY BITCH is our president

  • Drake Valiance

    I remember when Trevor was funny. Ah the good old days before he went trump crazy in lockstep with the regressive left.

  • Railey White

    Is it just me or when it says "Dumb Man Talking," people's mind's go to "Dead Girl Walking" from Heather's the musical

  • Ben Frank

    Trump so phoney. Also an obsessive micromanager so I believe the stories of him trying to squash investigations into his crimes. This fits his personality to a t.

  • SuperSecondmouse

    You can see the smile on George Stephanopolis face at the beginning….he's probably thinking "Dumbass….I worked here for many years before you ever set foot in the place…."

  • John Moldoch

    No, I'm not going to turn the financial statements over, but I hope they get them, because they're phenomenal.
    Right.

  • GroovyNipple

    He not giving over his taxes but he hopes they get ahold of them because they are fantastic? What? Are they running around the globe like Carmen San Diego?? This is a case of saying one thing and really meaning the opposite. He’d piss his pants if those taxes were released. You know he would!

  • C3 4

    Totally unrelated to the video topic, but i looovvvvveeeee Trevors tie. It's a gorgeous shade of blue and really pops👌

  • Tristan Möller

    They weren’t fired because they brought in the negative numbers, they were fired because someone leaked them to the press.

    Rewind this video to 2:51… Doesn't trump's ugly 3-chin face look like the arch-nemises of Deadpool, but instead of Deadpool with a goatee, he's an Oomp-Loompa with Deadpool eyes (sorry Ryan Reynolds, unlike trump, the world loves you)

    President Trump has 3 wives (2 are ex-wives) and they all support him. Even though he is divorced from 2, they still are part of his family. Ivana is his first wife and she was/is a great mother to their children. All 3 children love their father and he loves them. Marla is also very nice and she loves her daughter and the daughter loves her father and he loves his daughter. I heard Marla talk in a video and she is such a sweet lady full of love. Melania is a very sweet woman and so humble and she speaks only good of her husband and their son is also a good young man. So when we see all of these facts of a family that loves each other then we know that we need to support our President who is a great family man who is loved by his family and who loves his family. I don't think he is racist. Yes, he may say things that people don't like but at least he is pro-life. When he says things that we don't like then we need to examine as to why he said that and find a loving solution.

  • SHARPELECTRIC L L C

    His definitely smarter then you. Some of your jokes are the dummies I ever heard. Should I judge someone by one wrong word they say? No! I don't care what Trump say as long he keeps his promises and does what he says and last important thing is keep moving forward, grow our economy rebuild America, roads, bridges, schools, airports and so on leave something good for generations to come.

  • flowerpress1

    Who paints has face like that? Trump looks like a cartoon.. Everything about politics is a joke anyone can be president.

  • Mei Lin

    Stop attacking and persecuting a great president! How about the many great things he is doing for our nation? I can't imagine what a mess our country would be if you were the leader of this country. A shallow show.
