Tucker Carlson Takes a Sudden Vacation Following His Hot Take 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.

  • Captain Tightpants says:

    White Supremacy is different from White Nationalism – and I would agree that Supremacists (TRUE Supremacists) are few and far between. Supremacy is the desire to rule over other races, whereas Nationalism is the desire to be separate from those races. I'd venture to bet that most 'white supremacists' advocate for nationalism, not supremacy, but to make it more scary, they are lumped into supremacy. I think whites have learned their lesson from multiculturalism – who'd want to rule a bunch of useless blacks, anyway? Integrating only leads to bad things, it's remaining separate that provides longevity of the races. It's mixing them together that is really racist (promotes the out breeding of races).

  • The Guy with the Shades -Yaddigg Ya'digg? says:

    I love how Tucker says "white supremacists are there to divide the nation, it's a hoax." And I'm laughing going,

    "That's how you lie and tell the truth at the same time "

  • Matthew Watson says:

    Excuse me but "white supremacists are at the same threat level as the Russians"–isn't Russia actively interfering with our election process according to our own government? After already interfering with our elections?? How is that not threatening to democracy?

  • Because I’m Batman!! says:

    Tucker carlson: tune in on the show that’s the sworn enemy of pumposity and smugness and groupthink.

    Then he proceeds to lie his smug pompous ass off😆🤣

  • TheDeadlyAvenger says:

    I would gladly like to never see Tucker "constantly confused" Carlson, Jeanine "hateful gobshite" Pirro and whole sick bunch of talking heads over at Fox ever again, scum, every one of them.

  • Welp Tuckies back soo wrong again must be sad to be on the losing side. Crying and lying is is left is good at Haha well not so good at the lying part I guess. Too bad if you showed any clips in context your sad little narrative would be shattered and be very damning lol.

  • I honestly can’t believe this tucker isn’t diagnosed as mentally retarded and in an assisted living facility. Why the hell do the stupidest people in this country get jobs at fox, the white house and just like ivanka keep failing up? Defies any logic

  • Group think?
    They fight against "Group think"?
    Wtf does that mean?
    You don't like it when people group together and think?

  • I think white supremacists are the absolute bottom of the barrel when it comes to the white race.

    With that said I'd love to see how people on the left define the words nationalist and white. Then define the term white nationalist.

  • Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! says:

    They need to investigate Tucker Carlson, and he needs a great name like Moscow Mitch. Any ideas??

  • The metric system was joke made me laugh. But that's only because it reminded me of a jack handey bit about soil erosion.

  • OMG!!!! I find it hard to believe a female would exchanging bodily fluids with Carlson. That’s a bridge too far. Can’t get that out of my head.

  • Trevor Noah is wonderfully funny and ……… boy, he has charisma. !!!……. —— I am sure, many envy his intelligence too.

  • Well Carlson's literally a poser doing it for the attention and money so it's fitting. Tough to know when to turn off the inappropriately timed rhetoric when its always on auto pilot.

  • 🤓🤓🤓🤓Tucker's vacation is just a short one, just long enough until another news sensation pops up.🤔🤔🤔🤔

  • They send you on "vacation" in the Trump presidency!
    That's better than the Bush years. They sent you "hunting" with Dick Cheney!!!

  • Well, at least Faux News suspended that fungus-infected toenail for saying something *wrong*. I normally expect them to "vacation" their employees when they tell the truth.

  • Zippie Chickie says:

    Trevor Noah edits clips to make people think the way he wants them to. Canned laugh track. Haven't heard that in awhile.

  • Trevor you are a disgrace you and your stupid CNN station it's a has-been station nobody watches it the only reason why I'm on it is because it came on my phone and I saw what you said go to hell Trevor

  • Lol you tools falling for this propaganda. Whites make up about 70% of the population so what ever stats you have are going too be higher for whites…

  • Why just worry about that ??????

  • OMG, can’t believe how funny you are. I mean joke after joke after joke. Yo mama must be so proud of your wit, penis references and laugh track.

  • How can Tucker Carlson be so stupid to say white supremacy is a hoax?? What was he thinking? I guess he has exceeded our expectations on his level of stupidity.

  • Swallow the red pill folks: white supremacy is the new boogey man designed to keep minorities engaged, get them out to the polls in 2020, despite atrocious performance by Democrats. It's insidious and, frankly, psychological abuse.

    All of the sound and fury on race … the entire progressive power center is silky white to its core. Follow the money, reject lies and division. 100/1 odds a white person is the DNC nominee.

    So the average white person whose father/grandfather fought in WWII, against maybe our biggest existential threat in Nazi Germany, now sympathizes with the Nazis. Was Hitler pro-Jew like Trump is? You really have to be stupid to believe these white liberal devils.

    In time, history will judge all of this behavior as egregious psychological/emotional abuse of vulnerable minorities. It's really despicable.

  • Chris Di Paolo says:

    Is there a law regulating my thoughts on whether or not I believe my race to be superior? Last time I checked it was perfectly legal to have opinions. Show me a law in which I am mandated to mentally assent to the notion that all races are indeed equal. I'll be waiting.

  • Leave it up to Mr. Noah to not say one word about the black hate groups, antifa, or louis farrakhan, only the white hate groups. No one will say anything about all the others. Why? So Mr. Noah, let me show you how to do this….They're all hate filled groups, and they all need to STOP! Tell them all to set their hate aside, not just one of them. Hate is hate, it doesn't matter who it comes from, it all needs to be condemned…

  • Is that clown trying to be funny his jokes were so bad I couldn't tell for sure. Can someone please remind me again who pole he is smoking is it lemon head or the q tip headed guy cooper might be your r best

  • Trevor Noah should invite Tucker Carlson on his show but hell never do that because Tucker may just make to much sense for Trevor's audience

  • you are a disgusting, talentless joke thief. Keep reading what your dozen writers feed you to regurgitate, and pretend like you matter, and that you actually have an audience.

  • He didn’t go on vacation. The grand wizard called for a meeting at the last minute. Headed straight to the woods to wear sheets and burn crosses.

  • Multicultural Malignancy says:

    What’s obvious it is that there are two Americas and they will never come together again! Civil War is on the horizon and I’m putting my money on the conservatives since they have the vast majority the guns, ammunition, brains & balls!!
    Bring it on bitches!

  • Trevor, this was one of your BEST! And, omgddss, the Chris Cuomo dig was adorable! I
    love that guy! And, for once, no sick sex references! It shouldn't be necessary to get a joke from
    sick sex jokes. So, thank you for just being funny!

  • Sad everyone r just followers and can't think from themselves! Tucker is %100 right! When was the last white supremacists you ran into, or last protest, or March! Sad the left keeps pumping this up! How this is offences and cause his bosses are cowards and told him to take days off means what! I was on the left for a longtime until I kept seeing how everything the left was saying wasnt reality and that's what woke me up!

  • Joseph Magalhaes says:

    The left lives to race bait Sad of course there is very unfairness In This world More the elites controlling idiots like the douchebags you see every night on cnn

  • Christopher Bedford says:

    Wait wait wait wait wait

    "The show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and group-think"

    So, the sworn enemy of Trump, the GOP, AND HIMSELF then? Seriously, those are basically four of Carlson's Top Five selling points. Maybe not in that order – I'd probably put smugness and pomposity at the top, and add glib disingenuousness in there somewhere.

    Sheez, I will say he has balls though. The sworn enemy, indeed.

  • Jonathan Dryden says:

    Trevor please shut the fuck up. You suck more than Dyson. I really think it's funny how you killed the ratings of a show that Jon kept up every week. I guess it is personality that matters and not the skin color. Damn that sucks for you Mr. Noah

  • Atleast people critisize fox News and the owners and advertisers are forced to take action against the hosts. In India people actually support these news channels which are probably worse than those of USA
