Trump’s Coronavirus Address, Blooper Reel Included | The Daily Show


With the world on edge, people are looking
to their leaders for reassurance and answers. Unfortunately, we have him. So, last night, the president
held an emergency live address from the Oval Office
to calm the nation down and to find someone else
to blame. NEWSWOMAN:
Breaking news. Tipping point. President Trump
addresses the nation on the coronavirus pandemic, using just his second
Oval Office speech to announce
the U.S. will suspend most travel from Europe. The European Union failed
to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China
and other hot spots. As a result, a large number of new clusters
in the United States were seeded
by travelers from Europe. This is the most aggressive
and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus
in modern history. Okay, first of all,
it isn’t a foreign virus. It’s just a virus, okay? Trump makes it sound like corona
doesn’t speak English. (laughter) And-and… And also, we can
blame Europe for many things– colonialism, skinny jeans,
Piers Morgan– but this virus is worldwide,
all right? It was gonna get here
no matter what Europe did. Honestly, it’s beginning to look
like shutting down borders is just Trump’s go-to solution
for everything. This is all he thinks about. “What? Problem? Shut a border. Problem? Shut a border.” Does he do this
in his personal life, too? Yeah? Is Melania just like, “I don’t love you anymore,
Donald.” And he’s like,
“Close the borders. No one’s getting in or out
of this marriage.” (laughter) Now, Donald Trump’s
presidential address turned out to be as calming as a pack of fireworks
dropped into a bag of cocaine, because not only
did he surprise everyone with this announcement but it turns out
he almost got everything wrong. NEWSMAN: President Trump
ramping up his response to the coronavirus outbreak, but instead of reassuring
the public, he caused more confusion
than calm, like this statement. We will be suspending all travel
from Europe to the United States
for the next 30 days. NEWSMAN: The Department
of Homeland Security quickly clarifying, assuring
the travel restrictions will not apply
to U.S. citizens, permanent residents and some
of their family members. The ban instead would only
apply to foreign nationals. Trump caused more uncertainty when he said the restriction
would apply to trade. And these prohibitions
will not only apply to the tremendous amount
of trade and cargo but various other things. NEWSMAN:
But Trump took to Twitter to clear up that statement,
writing, “It is…” (reading): President Trump
further jumbled the message when he addressed
the health care costs associated with coronavirus. Earlier this week,
I met with the leaders of health insurance industry, who have agreed to waive
all co-payments for coronavirus treatments. NEWSMAN: A White House official
later corrected the notion, saying co-payments
would be waived only for coronavirus tests, not for treatments
of the disease. I’m-I’m sorry, but this is… this is unbelievable. Like, I would…
I would understand if Trump made mistakes, right, if this whole thing
was off-the-cuff. But how is it possible to get so many things wrong
in a prewritten speech? This is crazy.
Watching an Oval address shouldn’t be a game
of two truths and a lie. (laughter and applause) He’s just up there like, “The coronavirus
is very dangerous. “We need to be vigilant. And my babysitter growing up
was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.” (laughter) “God bless America.” And this misinformation
that the president spread, it caused actual chaos, right? The European travel ban doesn’t
include American citizens, but that’s not what Trump said
in his speech. So Americans
who are on vacation in Europe rushed to the airport in a panic to fly home
before the ban took effect. Yeah, there were even reports of people shelling out
thousands of dollars for a last-minute ticket
’cause they were panicking. Yeah. And then the ones
who couldn’t get them, they just hung off the airplane like one of those trains
in India. (laughter) Trump caused so much confusion that even the coronavirus
was probably like, “Okay, wait,
can I fly to America or not? “Like,
I-I’m just gonna call Delta. I don’t know
what’s going on here.” (laughter and applause) So, just to be clear,
Americans… Americans can fly home
from Europe. Which, if you think about it, means they could
bring corona back. Yeah. It’s not a fail-safe. ‘Cause Americans always bring
something back with them whenever they come from Europe. Yeah, it’s a thing they do,
whether it’s a disease or a dumb new way
to say “croissant.” (laughter) Yeah. It’s a croissant, okay? You’re from Philly. Calm down. And another thing. Another thing
that doesn’t make sense is that although Trump
banned travel from Europe, he didn’t ban flights
from Ireland and the U.K. And when Trump was asked
about that today, he gave one of the strangest
explanations of all time. And one of the reasons the U.K.,
basically, has been… Uh, it’s got the border. It’s got very strong borders. And, uh, they’re…
they’re doing a very good job. They don’t have very much
infection at this point, and hopefully,
they’ll keep it that way. I’m sorry, what? (laughter) The U.K. is fine
because it’s got “the border”? Other countries in Europe
also have “the border.” Unless, maybe,
does he mean the water? Is that it? What, does Trump think
the coronavirus doesn’t know how to swim? Because that’s racist. (laughter) And also, also, I don’t even… I… Like, I can’t believe
I’m saying… It’s not true. The U.K. and Ireland
have more corona cases than many of the countries
on that list that is banned. So, let’s just be real. The reason the U.K.
and Ireland are exempt is probably because Trump
owns golf courses there. Yeah. Well, that’s what I think. You know,
if-if Iran thought about it, they would just put
a Trump golf course in Tehran. Yeah. They’d have
a nuclear deal tomorrow. Trump would just be like, “Now
you’re enriching me and uranium. It’s a win-win. Win-win.” (applause) So… So, look,
I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. President Trump’s
Oval Office address last night, it was an absolute disaster,
right? But there was a silver lining. Because, you see,
for some strange reason, the cameras were recording Trump before he gave his address,
all right? But he didn’t realize
it was rolling. And so today,
we got to see the real Trump when he’s not
acting presidential. And honestly,
this was pure comedy gold. You want to do this for me,
Alex, please? (exhales) What’s our timing? MAN:
Two minutes and 20 seconds. Do you like the book
being on the desk or not? Would you rather have it not be? May-Maybe it looks better. Gives you something up here,
right? Does it matter? What? Oh, (bleep). (laughter) Uh-oh. I got a pen mark. Anybody have any white…
Do you have any white stuff? (laughter) “Oh, (bleep). Does anyone have
any white stuff?” First of all, his name is Mike Pence,
okay, Mr. President? (gasping, laughter) (applause) But can I just say… I can safely say, this is the first time
in my life that I’ve seen
the deleted scenes of a presidential address. Like, America’s downfall
might be scary, but, you got to admit,
the bloopers are hilarious, you know? And it was– it was really weird hearing a president
in the Oval Office say, “Oh, (bleep).” Although I guess now we know
what it sounds like whenever he gets a call
from Eric. (groans) Now, I’m-I’m gonna go out
on a limb and say that Donald Trump
is as freaked out by coronavirus as regular citizens, which is wild,
because he’s the president. And the reason I say that
is because it turns out the cameras carried on rolling -after Trump ended his speech,
-(gasping, laughter) and-and his reaction
was priceless. God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you. Okay. Okay.
(exhales) (laughter) Yeah… That… is not the sound
you want to hear from a president
after a serious address. FDR didn’t reassure the nation
by saying, “The only thing we have to fear
is fear itself. “Okay, Daddy needs a margarita. “Can I get a margarita? Ha. I need a drink. Oh, they still–
they’re still here?” So, look,
this is all to say that, despite the efforts
of sports leagues, amusement parks,
state and local governments, unfortunately,
the man at the top just does not seem
to have his shit together. And with coronavirus now
in full pandemic mode, all I have to say to that is, oh, (bleep).

  1. One more lie: The virus dna-fingerprint in the US, shows that up until that point not one infection came via Europe, but most directly from Asia.

  2. YOU PEOPLE THAT ARE LISTENING TO THIS LITTLE WUSS ARE PATHETIC! I READ YOUR COMMENTS AND REALIZE YOU HAVE NO PURPOSE IN LIFE BUT TO SPREAD HATE AND DIVISION. DO EVERYONE A FAVOR AND END YOUR PATHETIC EXISTENCE!

  3. thanks to this video there is a good app to guide us for prevention and treatment of coronavirus
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.benice.coronavirus

  4. It's a foreign virus it came from a foreign country called China. Wtf is this pissed off lesbian talking about?

  5. Larry & Sergey will give a list of all the Gmails that liked and agreed with this video to the government and to Trump himself, hence some of y’all won’t be getting your monthly payoffs.

  6. Trevanor I'm a huge fan of you. But I would like to correct one statement that you made about people hanging on Trains in India. None of the Indians hang or get on top of the trains now and it was even never happened in the past. But you can find those people in our neighboring country Bangladesh and Pakistan.

  7. Trevor Abraham you are satanist cause you busy making stupid jokes in desperate major"s.
    what if your Dear Mother was sick of COVID-19, world you make a joke about that? you sun of a bitch.

  8. Trevor Abraham you are satanist cause you busy making stupid jokes in desperate major"s.
    what if your Dear Mother was sick of COVID-19, world you make a joke about that? you sun of a bitch.

  9. German Measles, Spanish Flu, MERS, yet Trump s racists when he calls it a China virus, you SJWs fail. Trevor Noah and you loons are so deep in TDS you have zero credibility.

  10. "This is crazy…." Yes. Mostly you define craziness by what people say. As Trumpy always says crazy things, he easily is defined as supercrazy or hyperidiot or The President of the U.S.A., who nowadays always is crazy.

  11. Trevor Noah stirring up dissent amidst a crisis – but his fanbase of clueless adolescents are inconsequential to society.

  12. All of yal talkin shit about our leader would suck dick if fake news told you that’s what good Americans do😎..

  13. its a foreign virus , it came from china , and the only thing cringeworthy is looking at this “so called” comedian, its amazing how many scum bag ppl there are in this country, the media is the one responsible for ppl terror, and fear of ppl

  14. i hate this guy so much !!! he should go back to south africa , the government there have the same views as him, hate anything white

  15. Anybody anywhere assuming they’re in private would be an easy target and subject to this same kind of scrutiny ppl are ppl .he was professional while in the capacity of his profession.after that he’s what we call human ..wtf is expected of this man??

  16. Trump cannot calm the US people down he feels good about something does not make it right does not make it work just like the malaria pills he feels good about that if you got malaria the pills work who's not no doctor but you don't feel good that the malaria pills will help with the Coronavirus what kind of potion is that let him get the Coronavirus and let him take those goddamn pills to see if that helps

  17. I am from India and I understand this is just a playtime for all those in oppose, and for all those in favour, he is simply a legend no matter how significant his normal gestures and comments are… Thank God the President of the United States is a simple human being!!!

  18. I think if anything, President Trump probably said foreign virus because it started in a foreign country. Aka China. Closing borders at this point, whether our President is racist or not, is in the best interest of the American people. More traffic in and out of the country risks increasing the rapid spread of the coronavirus. Just because you disagree or don't like someone doesn't mean that everything they do is awful. And that's coming from and independent. Stop umping on people's cases and actually try to make an effort to unite to combat these hard times.

  19. This funny reporter man is a joke himself. I wish I could punch this moron in the face. Smart mouth prick. Everything is a joke to this idiot

  20. I always disliked Trevor Noah. No matter what better it is for the country, he ALWAYS has to disagree with Trump. He acts like shutting down borders aren't going to help, while Russia closed down borders right away and they have barely any cases. I'm not saying Russia is good, because Communism is a disaster, but I'm saying that not everything Trump does and says is wrong.

  21. Please share the Imperial University Report with Americans, so they can understand this lock down we are in. It's the difference between 4M Americans dying with the hospitals being overloaded like Italy, and 1M dying. As of Noon PST there are 16.5k people infected. County health departments are more accurate than the CDC!

  22. It comes from China, where they skin cats alive, chop the legs off of live dogs, eat horses and eat bats. And have cancer villages with natural water streams the color of bright yellow. It comes from China where people wear face masks to go outside (before any virus.) 👍

  23. This was hilarious 😅
    But honestly.. i like trump.. He may not act so smart some times.. but i still prefer him for president as opposed to Hilary 😄

    But that camera guy 😂😂
    Poor guy…he didn't know he was being recorded still😅

  24. I hope Trump just stops trying and let’s the virus destroy California, we’d be better off honestly without all those lefties

  25. Closing borders is bad when there's a virus that kills most kinds of people in literally every country on earth?????????? Of course this mixed race swine would even say something like that.

  26. here's hoping that whoever watches this BS dies from coronavirus. Not a trump supporter, but he's human and fallible and gives enough without having to reach like this jackass. Pure intellectual cancer, ashame that's not fatal.

  27. Unfortunately we have you;so why do you blame Trump? Trump is doing the best he can to keep US borders safe. You should be ashamed of framing Trump your president. Is this how you respect your president? All your comments are more silly than funny.Why not pick on Obama for a change.

  28. Nobody in the rest of the world takes Trump serious … we are only afraid about the consequences of his behaviour.

  29. Ohhh how funny your video and persona is! Everytime you tell a joke (your whole reporting), you need extra embedded loughs in the background to make it sound funny. Well, funny soy boy, Trump has done much more to what Obama never did. Prepare for the next 4 years under Trump. And also prepare for a new job with such a stale sense of "humour".

  30. One gallon jug of water. One small container of lemon juice. Pour the lemon juice into the water. Drink over a 24 hour period. This is Alkaline water, and viruses cannot live in an Alkaline environment. After drinking this, YOU become that Alkaline environment.

  31. It's China who covered the situation and stats with WHO's help. We all know how serious it is and how many people died. The doctor who disclosed the virus outbreak in Dec-19 was threaten to shut up and he died early this year. And our people, still can't stop eating bats and felt like its really not our problem. This is the comment from China, don't be fooled. Taking my risk for saying this….

  32. I CAN'T BELIEVE PEOPLE LISTEN TO THIS JOKER. I LIVE IN NY AND WE ARE VERY CALM FOR BEING THE HARDEST HIT BY THE VIRUS. WHILE TREVOR IS HIDING IN HIS 10 MILLION PENTHOUSE . HE'S NOT EVEN A CITIZEN MAKING MILLIONS OFF OF HIS BRAINLESS VIEWER'S. I'VE HEARD A LOT OF NEW YORKER'S SAY TRUMP IS DOING ALL HE CAN. EVEN OUR DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR CUOMO IS SAYING TRUMP IS DOING ALL HE CAN AND IS WORKING SIDE BY SIDE WITH HIM TO GIVE NEW YORK WHAT IT NEEDS TO BATTLE THIS VIRUS. IT SOCKS ME HOW AMERICANS AND NEW YORKER'S MADE THIS FOREIGNER ONE OF THE TOP 100 POWERFUL PEOPLE IN AMERICAN MEDIA. LETS SEEM HIM DO THIS IN SOUTH AFRICA. SO AMERICAN KEEP ON HANGING ON TO VERY WORK THESE FOREIGN LATE NIGHT HOST ARE SAYING AS THE PUSH THEIR OWN HIDDEN AGENDAS ON US AND WE PAY THEM TOO. LMAO

  33. You couldn’t juggle half of what trump does in a day you bitch boy! Way to make a joke out of something so big. Get a life

  34. Finally, a place I can voice my opinion about this fk president. The MF is a racist. He has no idea what the fuck he is taking about.

  35. Trevor, waarmee is jy nou besig ou seun. Jy is gladnie meer snaaks nie. As die kamera Trump gevolg het tot by die toilet, sou jy dit ook seker gewys het. Moenie maak of Trump n swak president is nie…..jy behoort dit seker te weet……dink bietjie terug aan waar jy vandaan kom. Terloops, die mense wat daar so lag, jy stel hulle bloot (of is dit jou vals gehoor?)

  36. You are US? Don't fly to US!!!! Stay at Germany or even better Austria. That will save your life. No joke. DO NOT ENTER US!

  37. Your only disagreeing because you think he’s racist. It came from China. From the slaughter of. Animals. That. We don’t eat here. Like bats. So no if we knew about it sooner it would have never gotten here. China. Is filthy. Why do you think they try to come to America

  38. This isn't a time for ideology. The virus did start in China. Closing borders isn't about racism, it is about protecting as many people as possible. Confinement does mean something. Now you'll have it, as we do in France. We waited too long, didn't take it seriously, yet our italian neighbors have been suffering weeks before us. Why do people keep thinking they're so special that they will be spared?

  39. US-Travelars? Stay in Europe. Stay in Germany, better stay in Austria. There is death in US. The health system is running, but only for the very rich. So: Stay in Europe. Survive!

  40. Don't make my view count because I came here on accident. I don't usually watch left-wing clowns but when I do, right-wing beast modes are destroying them.

  41. " it is not a foreign virus , its just a virus". well if It originated in a foreign country , wouldn't that make it a foreign virus? He is just trying to find every way to make Trump look stupid ( I will admit trump isn't doing himself any favors ). Anyway, Why doesn't Trevor Noah rather than trash talking, spend time spreading awareness. Weather you are liberal or conservative , we all need to band together to defeat the common "enemy".

  42. Trump ist reading from a screen. He ist squinting and He ist not fidgeting with His tiny hands. And He isn't shouting. I doubt he understands what he's reading.

  43. tRump is a joke nothing here, never was while he has been running around like a chicken with his head cut off Thai Doctors have been hard at work, they have lost only 1 at this time where the U.S. has lost 200 at this time, check this out while he is doing absolutely nothing btw notice the date of february 3!

  45. Did Trump just drop the F-bomb on TV? That is NOT OK! That is NOT bleep-ing OK!

    Plus, why did it look like Trump was delivering his speech from a set? It also looked like Trump was zipping up his fly at the end before the cameras stopped rolling.
    Finally, that "OK" by him REALLY sounded non-committal to me, like "OK, that's done. What's next? Let's go to IHOP. I'm driving!"
