2020 October Democratic Debate in Ohio | The Daily Show

Coming into this debate, there have been
a lot of new developments. All right, Elizabeth Warren
has surged in the polls. Joe Biden and his son
have become targets of the Trump administration. Bernie Sanders had
a heart attack. And last week, Pete Buttigieg snuck into
his first R-rated movie -(laughter)
-But… by far the biggest development
since the last debate has been the impeachment inquiry
into President Donald Trump. So that was the first topic
of the night. I don’t really think
this impeachment process is gonna take very long,
’cause as a former prosecutor, I know a confession
when I see it. This president
had obstructed justice. This president,
on three occasions, three occasions,
has invited foreign governments and heads of government
to get engaged in trying to alter our election. We have to impeach
this president… He lied to investigators,
obstructed justice, fired James Comey,
head of the FBI, tried to fire Mueller… The president ten years,
or a hundred years from now, will look back at this moment
and draw the conclusion either that no one
is above the law or that a president
can get away with anything. Okay, I hear what you’re saying, but let’s be honest,
the way the planet is going, in a hundred years from now, the president isn’t gonna
be worried about impeachment, he’s gonna be worried
about the price of lizard blood. -(laughter)
-And as for Biden, his question was
a little different. He was asked why it’s not okay
for a president’s family to be working with foreign
businesses and foreign companies but it’s okay for
a vice president’s family to do. And I… I think I get
where he was going, but it took a while
for him to get there. Look, uh… my son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. My son’s statement
speaks for itself. What I think is important is we focus
on why it’s so important to remove this man from office. On the 17… Look, the fact that… George Washington worried… on the first time he spoke
after being elected president, that what we had to worry about
is foreign interference in our election. Okay, one minute
he’s talking about his son, then it’s George Washington,
then something about the 17? Like, Joe Biden is the only
candidate who remixes his speech while he’s giving it. He’s just like,
“Removing this man from… (imitates record scratching) “…seven, on the sev,
seven, seven, sev, 17th, and the fact,
that the fact that…” This is, like,
a weird thing that he does. And aside from impeachment,
aside from impeachment, health care was
a major topic tonight, with the standard debate about
whether government-run insurance should be an option
or the only option. But the thing
that got the crowd going was when the O.G. of Medicare
stepped into the game and showed everyone why they should put respect
on his name. The issue is whether the
Democratic Party has the guts to stand up
to the health care industry, which made a hundred billion
dollars in profit. Whether we have the guts
to stand up to the corrupt, price-fixing
pharmaceutical industry, which is charging us
the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. -(applause) -And if we
don’t have the guts to do that, if all we can do
is take their money, -we should be ashamed
of ourselves. -Thank you. Ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai!
Bernie Sanders! -(cheering, applause)
-You can’t deny it. You cannot deny it.
No one speaks about health care with the passion
that Bernie does. I also have a suspicion that
that’s the same speech he gave every time the nurses tried
to give him pills. He was like, “No more pills! “I have the guts to stand up
to the pharmaceutical industry! I just need a nap.
I’ll be fine!” Now, you probably
didn’t notice tonight, but one of the 52 candidates
on stage was Tom Steyer, right? Hedge fund billionaire
and scarecrow from Oz. And… most people, most people only know Steyer
from his TV ads where he calls on
President Trump to be impeached. And if you think about it,
it’s a pretty cool perk of being a billionaire. You can just buy ads on TV
and make everyone listen to what you want
to talk about. Yeah. Like, if I was a billionaire,
my ads would just be petty. You know, I’d be like, “Hello,
I’m billionaire Trevor Noah, “and my Thai food was supposed
to be here half an hour ago. “Please, somebody call
the restaurant for me and see where it is.” Anyway, you may remember, Bernie Sanders, a few weeks ago,
made headlines by saying billionaires
should not exist. So, of course, the moderators
asked Tom Steyer, an actual billionaire,
about Bernie’s comment, and his answer
was not what you’d expect. Senator Sanders is right. There have been 40 years where corporations
have bought this government, and those 40 years have meant a40-year attack on the rights
of working people, and specifically,
on organized labor. I was one of the first people
on this stage to propose a wealth tax. I would undo every
Republican tax cut for rich people
and major corporations. Yes, the billionaire just said
the government needs to tax the shit
out of billionaires. And you saw Bernie’s face,
he was like, “Is this a trap?
Is this a joke? “Wh-What?
He’s taking my thing. You can’t take my thing.” And, you know, it seems weird,
but when you think about it, it actually makes sense. If you’re already a billionaire, you don’t want
more billionaires. Yeah, it makes it less special.
You’d be like, “Yeah, tax them. I don’t want
them becoming billionaires.” Yeah. It’s the same way
I think America has enough South African
late night comedians. Like, yeah. Zero was too few,
and one is more than enough. We get it. Apartheid.
We get it. Move on. We get it.
One’s enough. (cheers and applause) So the debate then moved
to foreign policy, in particular,
President Trump’s decision to pull troops
out of northern Syria. And although all the Democrats
had different proposals on how they thought they would
handle the conflict in the area, they all agreed on one thing,
that Trump is doing it wrong. What this president has done is that he has sucked up
to dictators, he has made impulsive decisions that often his own team
doesn’t understand. What he has done is wreck our
ability to do foreign policy because nobody in the world will believe
this pathological liar. This president is caging kids
on the border, and effectively letting
ISIS prisoners run free. This president has betrayed
American values… Turning the moral leadership of this country
into a dumpster fire… We have an erratic,
crazy president who knows not a damn thing
about foreign policy. Okay, okay.
Hold on. Hold on. You may not like Donald Trump
but you can’t say he doesn’t know a damn thing
about foreign policy. Because, unlike Trump,
not one of these Democrats has congratulated
the country of Nambia on their health care system,
all right? And maybe that’s because there
is no country called Nambia, but that’s not the point. The point is not one of you
can find it on a map! (laughter) Now, since the debate
was in Ohio, the moderators also spent time focusing on the opioid epidemic which has ravaged
the Buckeye State. And the candidates had different
thoughts on the problem but many of them agreed
on who should help solve it. Let’s go after these
pharmaceutical companies for what they’ve been doing
to destroy our country. They are nothing more than some
high-level dope dealers. Until we hold those responsible,
accountable for their actions– Purdue Pharma,
Johnson & Johnson, we’re gonna continue
to have this problem. The people
that should pay for this, that should pay
for the treatment, are the very people
that got people hooked and killed them
in the first place, and that is the people that are manufacturing
these opioids. Yeah. Yeah. I 100% agree with Klobuchar. Drug companies should
have to pay to rehabilitate all the people
that they got addicted, oftentimes on purpose. And you know what? It shouldn’t
just be drug companies. Every industry– If you create
something addictive, you should be responsible for
making it harder to consume. Like Oreos. If they’re gonna make those
cookies so goddamn addictive, the least they could do
is after, like, every fourth cookie,
put a mousetrap inside. Bam! Slows the addiction down. “Ow. I’ll try again tomorrow.” Yeah. Or, like, Pornhub. Pornhub– every hour
that you’re on there, they should randomly pop up
a picture of your grandmother. Just, you’ll be like,
“Ah! I guess I’m done. Hi, Nana.” But the elephant in the room
the whole night was Bernie’s heart attack. And eventually, the moderators
got around to asking about it in a very, very awkward way. There is a question
on a lot of people’s minds and I want
to address it tonight. You’re 78 years old and
you just had a heart attack. How do you reassure
Democratic voters that you’re up to the stress
of the presidency? If you’re elected you will turn
80 during your first term. Last month former President
Jimmy Carter said he could not
have undertaken the duties of the presidency
at 80 years old. Why are you so sure
that you can? If you win the presidency, you would be
the oldest president ever inaugurated
in a first term. You would be 71. Congressman Gabbard,
you’re 38 years old, and you would be the youngest
president if elected. Should age matter
when choosing a president? Okay. Okay.
Is it just me or did the moderators ask
everyone about their health just to hide the awkwardness
of them asking Bernie? Right? ‘Cause they were like,
“Bernie, heart attack.” Then they’re like, “But
everyone. Everyone. Everyone.” I even, like, get the part about asking people
about being too old, but asking Tulsi Gabbard
about being too young? Is that really a concern? “Tulsi, uh, are you too fit “and vibrant for the presidency? Is it possible you might die
of young age?” And that-And that wasn’t the
weirdest part of the night. The weirdest part of the night
might have been when Kamala Harris started
a real life Twitter beef. Senator Warren, I just want
to say that I was surprised to hear that you
did not agree with me that on this subject
of what should be the rules around corporate responsibility
for these big tech companies, when I called on Twitter
to suspend Donald Trump’s account, that you did not agree. And I would, I would urge you
to join me. Twitter should be
held accountable and shut down that site. It is a matter of safety
and corporate accountability. LACEY: Thank you.
Senator Warren, you can respond. So, look, I don’t just want to push Donald Trump
off Twitter. I want to push him out
of the White House. -That’s our job. But the way…
-But join me… -But the… -Join me in saying
that his Twitter account -should be shut down.
-But let’s figure… No. -Let’s figure out…
-No? (laughs)
Wow. Someone’s mad
they didn’t get a retweet. What happened there? It’s just like, “You didn’t… you didn’t say the thing
with me.” Elizabeth’s like,
“No, I don’t care about that.” I… And I’ll be honest.
I’ll be honest. I kind of understand
Warren’s point here. Like, we need Trump on Twitter. It’s the only way
we can monitor what he’s up to. Yeah, otherwise,
he’s doing that shit in secret. You got to think of Twitter like
a presidential baby monitor. That’s what you got
to think of it as. Yeah. The whole time you’re looking,
you’re like, “Hold on, hold on. “He’s awake, and he wants
to nuke a hurricane. I got to go.
I got to go. I got to go.” (laughter) But Harris,
Harris wasn’t the only one picking a fight
with Elizabeth Warren tonight. No, in fact,
as the evening went on, the attacks on Elizabeth Warren
only grew more intense. I want to give a reality check
here to Elizabeth, because no one on this stage
wants to protect billionaires. Not even the billionaire
wants to protect billionaires. Uh, we just have
different approaches. Senator Warren is more focused
on being punitive or pitting some part
of the country against the other. Your signature, Senator, is
to have a plan for everything– except this. I appreciate Elizabeth’s work, but, again, the difference
between a plan and a pipe dream is something
that you can actually get done. Damn. Elizabeth Warren
might have an even bigger target on her back now than Joe Biden,
and it makes sense. I mean, she’s risen
to the top of the polls, and now her competitors
have their sights set on her. And that, really,
was the big takeaway of tonight, is that they’re coming for you,
Elizabeth, and all I can say is
I hope you got a plan for that.

  1. The DOCTORS prescribed the pain meds not the manufacturers they are just filling demand! They should only be held accountable for false advertising nothing else!

  2. yayyy corporate media wooo. god i used to enjoy these shows but they now just bash people who actually have real ideas and care about how to fix this country. makes me sad. rip democracy and meritocracy – maybe one day we'll have it implemented properly

  3. Kamala Harris is a clown. Twitter is a private business and has the right to keep anyone they want. And it's disgraceful that some of the candidates gave cheap shots to Warren now that she's leading in polls. They need a unifying message.

  4. I love how all I've seen is an obout Andrew yang yet media is black balling him just like they did Bernie in the last election. It's like they don't give a fuck what the people really want smh

  5. I need to chime in re: Kamala Harris, after watching the video and reading some of the comments… I think what she means to get at is the bigger problem of cyberbullying. The issue being discussed was big tech companies, and she was trying to bring up an important problem that didn't have to do with money. So maybe that's why it seemed "weird", or out of left field…but I think it is important. I feel a little insulted that people seem to just want to write off or laugh about what she said, because his tweets enable his wannabes to hurt vulnerable people in the same way. Yes, I want to get Trump out of the White House too, but a very large part of the reason I do is because I despair at the thought of another young woman having their life ruined the way mine was being cyberbullied by one of his wannabes, shortly after the inauguration in 2017. What if he gets voted in again? It will just happen all over again. I cannot handle even the thought of that. And the larger point is that that kind of thing can eventually escalate into Charlottesville, or El Paso. If reddit is willing to remove the incel subreddit, why isn't Twitter willing to remove Trump and his wannabes? Because Trump is fast becoming our dictator and none of us can even really imagine our life without his tweets in it anymore. So long story short, maybe she comes off like a joke in the short term for saying what she did, but I am proud and moved that she did say it.

  6. Im feeling like you are biased against any progressive candidate. Middle of the line democrat keeps the status quo. Nothing will change, and they probable wouldn't win an election anyway. Also, less billionaires equal more people like me getting a fair pay for my ENTIRE LIFE OF HARD PHYSICAL LABOR! People like me, who have worked all year this year but still wont have christmas for my kids, to be able to get out of the ditch im stuck in. If you were doing great BEFORE trump, then by all means vote middle of the road democrat. If not then perhaps you should be talking about the only candidates that are PROPOSING laws and plans to finally benefit us the people! Also Warren DOES have a record that you can go look at, why dont you? Compare her history of voting for and against by any of the "nothing changes" democrats history of for and against and you will see the same thing I do. This is how it happened, 30-40 years of complacent democrats cashing in on lobbying right along with the right wing! You will see members of the dem party having failed us time and time again against a republican party that can barely tie their shoes without breaking the law. Thats what has to change for things to change. We the people need champions and I only saw 2 for sure on that stage.

  7. As far as the pharmaceutical companies goes are you saying that the cigarette companies don't have to pay for people getting treatment to stop smoking oh wait the government got paid and they ain't giving it away free even though they gave away free money you know what a bank stole our money and then our government bailed him out and we had to pay them back so they stole our money twice I'm so sick of it all it's like this country was built on presidents Hammond glamorous words you know like Freedom while holding slaves so why shouldn't Trump do what he doing like the man said this is always been done get over it

  8. All these people commenting about yang, y’all all on his “dang-a-lang” 😂😂😂😂😂. But in all fairness the man did make some valid points.

  9. Trevor…why do you IGNORE BErnie ALL the time except to disrespect him. America needs him to win. I know you’re in the corporate world, but I think your mother taught you better critical thinking than that. Do your Mom proud and really look into Bernie. He’s been fighting for the working class for over 45 years! All “newscasters” are at least millionaires. Cover Bernie honestly….he’s no JOKE! Thank you. You can make a difference.

  10. I would love to sub to you but since all of your videos but this one are unavailable in my country, how do you expect us to watch them……… UNSUB

  11. Tom Steyer is so much more than people know. He spent his OWN MONEY to promote THE 2018 "NEED TO IMPEACH" MAILING CAMPAIGN OF 2018 written by voters to Congress and other Voters who may have missed past elections by inertia.

  12. The only reason I clicked on this video is because I wanted to see commentary of Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard.

  13. Dear america never vote for any upper caste hindu especially brahmins because they are casteist (indian version racism) they are biased and will destroy your culture in the name of Asian diversity.

  14. How is Elisabeth Warren and Joe Bidden talking about corruption and lying, they both have lied about one thing or another and now they have the balls to call Trump a liar interesting.
    And for these fools to talk about foreign interferrence; really? Foreign nations have been interferring with our elections years, you don't think that these countries want presidents in office that will a line themselves with those countries interest be they ally's or foe.

  15. #trevornoah #dailyshow have you guys figured out why you can't find this debate or the last one in full anywhere on YouTube? Do you guys have links to full debates? Who are they purposely trying to censor?

  16. Lol their debate is mainly about impeaching a sitting President for various reasons depending on which canadite that speaks on it

    Wonder why ?

    Has to be they do not think they can beat him fairly so they either have to out him for whatever reason they can lead YOU to believe or try to cheat thier way in with media and social media outlets conspiring with them to out him or cheat best they can to do so

    Then when they are not focused on that then they say the most drastic things to try to get the stupid foolish believing sheep to vote for them by offering free government health care or free borders or free education and loan forgiveness for all or making all guns illegal or just basically telling you here have everything

    So if you can just judge actions just half way decent understanding ppl and if they are honest and decent ppl if you care to and you are those things or try to be then you can clearly see these canadites are not honest and not decent and they are the sell outs and all the things they say others or Trump is

    Its even easier to see because these dems walk and talk and claim to be for the ppl and all their methods are stand up and honest and decent and up standing so now think what do those things in a person make them not do and do , not say and say

    Then and only then you can see the truth and know who is what ' sorry but these dems are all well outs and awful human beings

    I'm not saying Trump is at all perfect but he sure seems more genuine then most of them ' his mistakes are more normal driven mistakes or just foolish ego or actual beliefs and not something coming from a puppet with an agenda to destroy this Land

    I always seen reps as the rich and the dems as the 1s that are about me and helping me through my struggle and the majority like me

    But one day we must grow up and atleast be honest with ourselfs and then you know its just a trick and good talk and speaches but at the end of the day thats all it is ' earn it your self and expect the government to great a state or a nation to make things wjere you have the ability to do that for yourself and help is there for those that truly needed it ' and we will all be ok becajse we will have a nations that allows us to thrive therfore making it thrive

    Good luck with that with the dems and thats when you see they are tryijg to destroy this country

    No borders
    No guns
    Free health care for all will ruin health care
    Free education but it will aalready is a education that is used to turn you into a mental slave worker bee for the dems
    Debt forgiveness that somebody else prob not a dem is paying for you to be educated to turning into 1 lol

    If you are a true American the dems should make you very upset and uncomfortable and confused

    Vote Trump even if you dont like him because atleast he is not un American in his beliefs as I hope you are because your voting in an American election

    God bless all

  17. I love how Buttigieg was all for supporting M4A…..then he took 548k in donations from the healthcare industry. Now he attacks it. It is pathetic watching these Republicans posing as Democrats sell their soul so easily.

  18. I think Elizabeth Warren helped me find “Of Mice and Men”at the library when I needed to read it for a book report in 4th grade. Thank you Elizabeth.

  19. You know who didn't attack Warren? Sanders and Yang. Everyone who attacked Warren did it to distract voters from the fact those corporate candidates:


  21. The Yang gang is …… tiresome & great at making voters run away ~ LOL Yang himself seems decent enough but he's not getting elected, enough with amateurs in the WH! We need Congressmen and Senators.


  23. Watching Warren on the debate is like watching a kid. Shaking her head as if she is saying na awe,na awe… that’s not true. Your wrong, you’re all wrong…

  24. Isn't the debate supposed to be about learning what you'll do for the people. Not what the current ruler has done wrong over and over?

  25. What a bunch of nut jobs the Democratic party has become. No one up there is worthy of the Presidency. No one up there will ever beat President Trump! Trump 2020!

  26. Is it just my imagination, or did it sound like Kamala Harris was using a (fake) southern accent when she was talking with Warren? I mean…am I going crazy?!

  27. 6:33: White folk and Nambia🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I done died and came back life at this one

  28. Question: I wonder why the drugs from the Pharmaceutical Companies are addictive? Do they have to be addictive?
    Answer: So people spend more money on their drugs and No I don't believe they have to be addictive.
    Note: So that would mean they add a substance to make them addictive. That could be a criminal act in my opinion.

  29. Was this some concerted effort by the yang campaign to blast the comment section of this video? So weird. I've never seen so many pro yang comments, but it's not normal.
