Trump Brings U.S. to Brink of War with Iran | The Daily Show

The U.S.A. versus Iran. Over the past week, tensions in the Middle East
have ramped up bigly, after Iran shot down
an unmanned American sky dildo. And now, America said that the drone was shot down
over international waters. But Iran said
it was flying in their airspace. We're learning
that on Thursday night, America almost went to war. Just 24 hours ago, last night, the U.S. was within minutes
of striking Iran, but President Trump suddenly
stopping the strike before it could happen. President Trump tweeting this. Sweet Lord. America was ten minutes away
from bombing Iran. And who stopped it?
Donald Trump. (applause) Yeah. What-What's that?
Who ordered the strike? Also Donald Trump. (laughter, applause) The point is, we are at peace, thanks to,
and in spite of President Trump. (laughter) And can we just take a second to acknowledge
how often this happens? Trump takes us all
to the brink of a crisis, and then, he's the one that pulls us back
at the last second. Sometimes it feels like
there are two different Trumps making these decisions. And you know what?
Like, maybe there are. Maybe he has an identical twin
running around the White House. You know? It's like one of
those Sister, Sister situations. Yeah. I mean, that would explain
all of the flip-flopping. In fact, it would explain
everything. He'd be like, "Mexicans are rapists!" "And some of them
are good people." "I'm gonna release
my tax returns." "No, I'm not." "I'm gonna play golf." "I'm also gonna play golf." (laughter) So, as you saw
in the president's tweet, the reason that he called off
the missile strikes is because, ten minutes before the launch, he found out how many people
could die in a strike, and to him, a drone wasn't worth
taking human lives. And honestly, I commend him
for even saying that. But now, people are
shooting down his story, like it's an unmanned sky dildo. NEWSMAN: The Washington Post
today reporting the president had been briefed hours earlier
about potential risks and casualties, and was
supportive of military action until around 7:00 p.m., when
he appeared to change his mind. This just doesn't add up that…
that when the president meets with his top Pentagon people, they give him
a very thorough list, a menu of targets, and say,
"You can hit this target, "you can hit that target. If you do, here are
the possible casualties." They run through
the whole thing. Yeah, according
to multiple people, the president's story
doesn't make sense. 'Cause they say a president
doesn't find out about potential casualties
ten minutes before a strike. Those numbers
are actually presented when the strike is proposed. In other words, they give
the president a menu of options, and then he picks
what he would like to do. And I think that's
where this all fell apart. You see, this isn't a guy
who uses menus, okay? It looks too much like a book. This is a guy who points at
pictures and asks for numbers. That's who this is. "Give me that one
with an extra that one." That's him. "And I'll be
taking a soak in the ball pit. Let me know when it's ready." Now, as much as we would like… we would like to believe
that this happened because Trump didn't
pay attention in a meeting, it might actually be
more complicated than that. Right?
Because it's been reported that the president may have
been given two different sets of casualty numbers. Yeah. That's what happened. Well, that's what
they're saying happened. And that wouldn't be surprising,
because it turns out there are two different factions
in this administration, and they've both been pulling
Trump in very different ways. NEWSWOMAN: Sources tell CNN
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor
John Bolton both favored striking Iran, while outside advisors
reminded him of his promise to get the U.S. out of wars,
not in them. NEWSMAN:
Vice President Mike Pence supported the planned
military strike on Iran but also agreed
with the president's decision to stop them. (laughter) Wait, what? The vice president supported
launching air strikes and not launching air strikes? I've got to say, the last thing
I expected to hear about Mike Pence
is that he swings both ways. (laughter) (applause, whooping) Like… seriously, what a… what a straight-up kiss-ass. He's like, "Sir,
I think we should strike Iran." (as Trump):
"I don't want to do it." (as Pence): "And you shouldn't,
sir. Great decision." So the hawks
were pushing Trump into war, and the doves
were urging restraint. And I don't know what the doves
told President Trump, but it looks like for now,
it's worked. NEWSMAN: The president says
if it comes to war, the U.S.
will "obliterate Iran," but what he really wants
is talks aimed at a new deal to keep Iran from getting
nuclear weapons. If… Iran wants to become
a wealthy nation again, become a prosperous nation, we'll call it
"Let's Make Iran Great Again." Does that make sense?
Make Iran Great Again. -(laughter, groans)
-Wait, what? Make Iran Great Again? So in 48 hours, Trump went
from threatening Iran to pitching a MAGA franchise
in Tehran? (laughter) And I'll be honest, I don't know
if MIGA has the same ring to it. (laughter) And… it could be
a lot of trouble if Iran ever pisses Trump off. He'd be like, "All right,
they changed their minds, so we're switching it
to "Never Iran Great Again." Be like, "Sir, no, I…
I don't think… I don't think we should…"
"Change it now! Change it to Never." "Look, sir,
look what you've done." -"Oh, my-my bad."
-(laughter) Look, if you pay attention, it's pretty clear
to see what's happening here. Trump doesn't want
to go to war with Iran, right? And he also doesn't mind sitting
down with them to make a deal. Feels like the truth is, he just doesn't want
Obama's nuclear deal. So, Iran,
here's all you need to do. Take the nuclear deal
you already had, replace "Obama" with "Trump," turn the whole thing gold
for no reason… and, most importantly,
don't forget to use pictures. It makes it easy
for him to decide. Yeah. That's a deal both Trump teams
can get behind.

    -fights for the people and veterans
    -crying and suffering for the people
    -knows the people hate him for propaganda but he continue to love and fight for them
    -protects and hugs legal Mexicans and whisper to their ear “The world isn’t perfect, one must sacrifice his fame for the light to prevail. One has to take the blame for everything to make good things happen”

  • I seriously don't want to vote for Donald Trump, but videos like this make me want to see him reelected. Left wing people are a bunch of traitors to their country.

  • That last part about changing the name from Obama to Trump, changing the letter to gold and adding pictures… you may think it's funny, but it would SERIOUSLY WORK. I mean LITERALLY… just level with him. People are completely underestimating how tiny his brain is, you can win him over with a chicken nugget.

  • You are gold bruh. I lmmfao.
    Sad though that pussy grabbing fuck tard is our president. I hope the demtards vote his ass out and the repugnants disown his punk ass. And, while everyone sues his punk ass, he goes crying into a corner asking "Why does everyone hates me so". And, some punk ass kid he had says "Because you's a bitch daddy, and it's time for you to be bitched". lmmfao
    The kis leaves the room saying "bitch bitch bitch, budda bitch bitch bitch" lmmfao

    You are way funner than I am, so, I'll leave the jokes to you bruh. lol

  • Bush: Iraq and Afghanistan 8yrs Thousands dead
    Obama: Iraq and Afghanistan Surge, ISIS 8 yrs
    Thousands dead
    Trump: China, Iran, Russia, North Korea 1st term no shots fired ("yet")

  • These people are mentally incapable of saving themselves or making decisions. Iran are the Nazis of the middle east. They are actively starting conflicts and insuing chaos in the region. They support terrorism and are working towards a nuclear weapon. Iran is a threat to world peace, they allow horrific acts to take place under Sharia law, they're fucking animals. And now these privileged liberal pieces of trash are hating their own country over Iran? Complete retardation.

  • Obama allowed Iran to build an atomic bomb. Then trump saved the world and stopped Iran's nuclear program. Trevor Noah you are a brainless clown. Where did they find you anyway to host the daily show amateur night at some free admission 2 drink minimum pass the bucket comedy bar on a Monday night?

  • Why leaders of the world behave like they not suppose too, perhaps there is a higher powerful person behind pulling those strings? We may never knew, but if the conspiracy theory are correct, then still we cant do anything about it.

  • I heard that the democrats moved civilians there and thats why nancy and chuck were dancing after the meeting, because they knew this was their chance to set him up and make him look bad. Look up them dancing, probably didnt hear much about it with our leftist media edit: and that could be why he got 2 different numbers

  • How come this is just such strange news news to everybody? stop acting like you haven't seen last minute reperations before an election before.

  • Iranian youths understood the fact that governments want world war 3 badly in 2009 n they sacrificed themselves in green movement of iran so now its back to you people of the world wake up

  • USA army considering civilian casualties ? Afghanistan/Vietnam/Iraq/Syria/Libya… how many civilians killed by US there? Why it matter in Iran but not in the countries above?
    Man am sick of USA lies -_-
