Putting Donald Trump Supporters Through an Ideology Test: The Daily Show

Putting Donald Trump Supporters Through an Ideology Test: The Daily Show


Earlier this week, Donald Trump
proposed a bold new program to manage immigration
into the United States. We should only admit
into this country those who share our values
and respect our people. I call it extreme vetting. I call it
extreme, extreme vetting. It’s like he really thinks the
more “extremes” he puts on it the more votes he’ll get,
you know? “We’re down six points in Ohio,
so extreme vetting. “Extreme, extreme. “Check again.
How many? How many? Seven. Extreme, extreme.” The big question is, uh,
how widely shared are the values that Trump speaks
of amongst Trump supporters? Well, we sent Jordan Klepper
to find out. KLEPPER:Donald Trump’s new
ideological screening test
will weed out extremists
with…
Extreme views
about religion such as… It’s oppression of women,
gays and non-believers. KLEPPER:That’s right. Trump
wants prospective Americans
to embrace religious freedom,
gender equality and gay rights.
At a recent rally in Wisconsin,
his fans were on board.
I am for extreme vetting. I am. I think it is a good idea. Extreme vetting. Think that’s a good idea? Of course.
He forgot one thing. Just make ’em eat some bacon. KLEPPER:
These guys were pumped about
America’s values
of tolerance so
I knew they’d pass Trump’s test
with flying colors.
Fill in the blank for me. Two men getting married is…
blank. Disgusting. I should answer
it’s legal in the United States. Oh, it’s legal,
but I don’t like it. It’s important
to believe in our… you know, to have respect
for everyone’s religion. -So you respect Christianity?
-I do. -Judaism.
-Yes. -Islam.
-No. Can a woman be president? The presidency is a man’s job. I have womenarequalified
to be president. No. A female
has more hormones. She could start a war
in ten seconds if she has hot flashes,
whatever– boom! Haven’t all wars
been started by men? Mm… yes. Do you think a gay couple
should have the same rights -as a het…?
-No, I don’t. I really don’t.
I don’t think it’s fair. To the gay couple? Well, no, but, the regular couple–
they work so hard, you know. And the gay couple–
they want more. Do you…? When you say more,
do you mean equal? Yeah, they want equal in that. -And that’s just too much?
-Yeah. -No, that’s the wrong answer.
Sorry. Hold on. -Ah.Turns out Trump’s ideology testwas going
to be harder than I thought.
Whenever I hear “president,”
I think of man. It’s a man’s job. What’s the r…?
I may be… Uh, closed-minded. No. Yeah, well, no. -Um…
-Misogynistic? (laughs)
No. You’re voting
against your own interests. That’s it. Thank you very much. These extreme nations– they
don’t treat women with respect. We treat women
with respect here. Yes, we do, be… -That’s an American ideal.
-Yup. Tell me about your shirt. -What’s it say?
-It says… (laughs) “Hillary sucks.” (laughs)
But not like Monica. Hilarious. So we were talking about
treating women with respect. It’s an American ideal that we treat women
with respect, so… You got to give me the back
of that shirt one more time. That’s too much fun. Trump that bitch! (laughs) We don’t even see
the irony in it. I love it, right?As passionate
as these guys were,
they just weren’t passing
Trump’s ideological test.
Luckily,
there was still time to study.
This will just help you
prep for the test so if you take it again,
you’ll be more welcome here. Uh, this is a DVD of the third
season ofWill & Grace.-Okay. -It’s really likable
and not too gay, gay people. This one is gonna be good
for you. Gloria Steinem. This really like, uh,
humanizes women. -Okay?
-(laughs) ‘Cause us feminists– -we have so much work
to be done. -(Klepper laughs) -You know?
-You a feminist? -No. -KLEPPER:Obviously,
extreme vetting was necessary
to weed out extremists,but until the plan was
in place, were any of us safe?
Are you afraid the extremists
are already here right now? They could be anywhere. They could be right here. -They could be.
-Yeah. -Like that guy or that guy.
-They could be over there. -They could be that guy,
or this guy. -Anybody.

    I just love the interviewer. These people have so few thought processing abilities he is able to expose their lack of these abilities and they are totally unaware. Can’t decide on my favorite. They are missing the man who ranted to one reporter that all Obama did when 9/11 and Katrina were happening was playing golf. When told that Obama was not President when these events took place he looked confused and said he would have to look into it.
