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.

    I wonder why men chose to sit down 24/7 just to make people laugh. Seriously, is that a job? I remember a man in the bible call Samson, he was ask to do some sports, skit, comedy, be funny etc, to make a stadium or theatre pack full of people laugh. I guess you know the story. Mr NT, he was a man like you, bold & determined not to stand there and make a fool & caricature of himself by making people laugh, he chose to die with All his enemies by bringing down the theater. NT, you have the brain & your a smart guy, go fly a plane, be a doctor or something. Making people laugh, forget their sorrows at they door, when they are done, walking out, they pick it up again & still remain depressed for life is not a job. Do something important, don't join the squad or joneses, you came here with a dream, comedy too cheap bro & your not funny. Go Make SA Great Again OR wherever you are now. Things have change, Time's up for comedy, video games & me too. Get a job!

  • The Elect

    hopefully your viewers will watch tucker's show that day and see how badly you edited it. BTW 60 million babies have been murder in the usa since 1973 by abortion .

  • GOLDEN BUDDHA

    KNOWING THAT TUCKER TOOK HIS SON ON A VACATION….IS MIND BLOWING. I HEARD THEY WENT ON A WHITE SUPREMACY FATHER/SON WEEK END RETREAT. FOLLOWED BY A KLAN RALLY. THEN A FAMILY PIPE BOMB BUILDING DAY. A GREAT BONDING EXPERIENCE FOR FATHER AND SON.

  • madmanatsea

    White Supremacy does NOT exist………….It is a talking point used by Democrats to spread Hatred of white people! Why do you think they keep saying "white Privilege" as if whites some how are Better than others? Democrats keep saying whites are Better and Superior when they keep spreading crap like 'white privilege"

  • john connolly

    Only the media you racist black please go back to Africa. Your globalist narrative is pretty flimsy, tucker is right and this idiot is part of it. Black lives matter shot two cops.

  • ViKing Tut

    Trevor Noah isn't funny. Mostly because I'm not a 19 year old college student who doesn't have any idea jon Stewart was way more talented

  • David Hohlen

    Tucker Carlson has the look of a man, in total constipation, who has to dump so bad, it's playing peek a boo, in his diaper. Gross, damn right it is, I puke every time I see his crunched up face!

  • Lone Mic Productions

    *ucker, I mean Tucker, saw Fox's target audience being exposed to dangerous ideas that might upset their fragile, fearful minds and that might introduce the concept that White's aren't the superior, faultless entity they think they are. So he had to stir the pot and then scamper off like a pussy into his safe zone so no one could criticize him.

  • CanYouKeepUp2K7

    Keep playing with Chris Cuomo…he might show up in front of your studio to prove why he is not a Fredo🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Like Clockwork64

    He's right though. Nearly all those white supremacist you use in photos and propaganda have no control over anything in your life. They haven't had control of this country since before Woodrow Wilson. Yet they have been berated and made a scapegoat for anti white propaganda since the 80s at least, longer than I have been alive. I don't know a single person that has gone out of their way to kick black people out of their jobs because they were black or their personal politics.

  • Rose Phoenix

    Fox News Nissan vacation because that cannot even handle the truth and specially they're not the real news anymore they are the fantasy news on Fox News sorry everyone but the people working inside they only do care about they fantasy world but they don't care about facing the reality we're sorry everyone but this is telling the truth okay some of you that people and kids that are not pay attention or some of you that you are paying attention try to understand for all the different news that it is real that tell you the truth

  • JRG2733

    Oh jeez, the tyranny of the metric system. What a threat to our way of life.
    That's what the British lamented in the 1960's when they switched over from shillings (bobs), crowns and half-crowns, sixpences, tuppences, and what-all. But they never did adopt the Euro, which would have benefited them considerably. Oops, until the Great Trump Admiration Society Brexit Experiment.

  • Sedat KPunkt

    Now we know how FoxTV guys are applying for vacation.
    They just need to talk more extreme crazy bullshit than they usually do.

  • dok dicer

    The shameful thing is that these companies financed this vile shit in the first place. Drawing out is not a bold show of decency.

  • Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming!

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

  • Alan Villaren

    Haha you guys still waiting for election 2016 to overturn. Aww did that shut u up. TRUMP 2020. HE'LL DO IT AGAIN DEMSHITS

  • William McGilberry

    Side note….advertisers who pull from one show reallocate their funds into another show. The overall revenue of the channel doesn’t drop. This last for anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months then they trickle back support.

  • NickTheGreatAndPowerful

    Oh man, Fox "News" taking on the "real issues".
    Real issues: whiny SJW college students, the metric system, and Hispanic people having babies.

    Non-Issues: 30% Spike in white supremacist terrorism in the last 3 years, the continued destruction of American democracy, the impending economic recession, wealth inequality and 40 years of wage stagnation, systemic racism in the police force, the war on drugs, military imperialism, late stage capitalism has lead to a small elite handful of people being rich enough to literally buy our government, and the aforementioned Hispanic babies being sent to concentration camps because the man running the country is a sociopath whose base consists of Nazi retards and bigoted religious zealots.

  • František Zvěřina

    Pity the fool. He's afraid of numbers, ppl of colour, science, women, technology.. such a pathetic existence. He's probably even secretly gay and unable to face it

  • RET Engineman

    Joke about it! a lot of it is is to Divide the country, Just like you shown an black guy buying a house? you the media is out of control! and CNN is a big fan if antifa? ya know Trevor Noah you are funny some of the time! keep pushing the divide

  • Misty Blue

  • Jonn Izzik

    HOW COME SUCH A FASCIST IS STILL AT FOX-FAKE-LIAR FASCIST-FABRICATED-NEWS?

    BECAUSE, HE RIGHT AWAY FITS IN WITH THE COVERT FOX-FASCIST-MILITIA:

    THE FOX-DEMOCRACY-DESTRUCTION -MILITIA.

    Swell-HEAD: “SCAMMY-SHITTY-NITTY” THAT OTHER DEMOCRACY ENEMY, THAT OTHER WHORE-MOUTH BULLY-WORD ALTERING- MACHINE — AND, A FRIEND OF STUKKKER KARLSUN PRADDLE MACHINE — SPEWING HATE, DAY IN— DAY OU— HATE, HATE WITH KETCHUP, HATE WITH BACON BITS, HATE WITH MAYONAISE OR MUSTARD . . .

  • Beach Bum

    Sadly there are so many people in Texas that believe the Tucker Carlson 💩😫Many are Carlson brainwashed in our area🤮

  • Snuffy Smif

    So… the NFL has what?… Like a couple hundred black players who kneel during the National Anthem? But somehow, according to crazy right-wing conmen like Carlson, they are more of a threat to America than tens of thousands (more like MILLIONS) of white supremacist nutcans?!!

  • Maaike R

    "To divide the country and keep hold of power"….exactly what trump is doing. Thanks fucker…uhh tucker. So unite the country and take control away from trump again.

  • dancepiglover

    The metric system? THE METRIC SYSTEM?! Now you're just looking for things to complain about. I can think of 3 reasons right off the top of my head as to why we should switch. 1) The rest of the world uses it, so it would make manufacturing sizes consistent; 2) It's easier to convert units from cm to meters, etc.; 3) It's the predominant measuring system in science.

  • Brandon Waters

    Lies…keep talking about it though you're gonna start pissing more and more people off then there might be. that sleeping bear can only be poked so much til it wakes up and fuck off back to Africa or England if this country is so white privileged

  • Anne B.

    What idiot hired this nincompoop? Tucker Carlson is a moron on 2 feet that gets paid to sit on his ass for 30 minutes and talk a lot of nonsensical bullshit. Clearly he's a racist or he wouldn't be defending racism. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the man is a bias asshole. Fox News has me completely confused these days…on one hand they have this loud mouth Tucker Carlson shooting off his lips talking about shit he knows nothing about or lying threw his teeth about what President Trump has done great for America…as long as he's getting paid and noticed he'll say whatever rhetoric someone writes for him to read. Does he really believe anything he actually says? …and on the other hand they've got Neil Cavato that rips Trump a new ass every chance he gets and stick to the subject matter when reporting the news instead of making shit up as he goes. Who is Tucker Carlson blowing over at fox to keep his ridiculous job?

    Yeah Tucker go fishing with your son…give that mouth of yours a break. Damn, did someone really procreate with that man?

  • brent averill

    I see CNN is still keeping up the race narrative. Pretty pathetic. Still crying over Trump's victory, or is it the failed Russian collusion hoax, or maybe the black dude that got beat up by his bros hahahhaa. Pathetic cnn and crybaby librals

  • L D

    At least they say that are going in vacation. You and Stephen Colbert disappear for 2 weeks leaving us in sadness. Don't do that again!!!

  • Dada Chingon O'Dell

    Trevor Noah is one of the worst comedians ever.. Not funny and not appealing. Just another puppet for the left with a strategically statistically relatable face to their target voters..

  • 713buddy

    Hey Dickhead, you completely missed and misrepresented what he was saying! What he was saying is in the grand scheme of life in America today, White Supremacy is about as much a threat to black people as slipping on an Asteroid and breaking your girlfriend's toe, in other words, "it just doesn't exist, and it just can't happen", but people like you, people who want to continue to perpetuate the lie that hords of White people are running all around the hood chasing blacks while trying to shoot them is ludicrous!

  • Bonnie Brock

    He did go on a pre-planned months in advance fishing vacation with his son to Labrador, Canada. Spewing out LYING LIBERAL FAKE ASS CLOWN NEWS AGAIN, Asshat. Both he and Hannity were laughing their asses off at idiots like you after Tucker came back one a half weeks later. Why don't you find something thats truthful to talk about instead, then just lying gossip..

  • Biniyam Tadesse

    I watch both Tucker and Trevor, i dont choose sides im for whatever makes sense against whatever don't, but Trevor makes it look like Tucker is totally dumb and insain on his show with quick cuts and not showing whole stories editing it in a way that makes liberals think this guy is an idiot. The same thing happens vice versa u cant trust any info this days

  • Roundhead Anderson

    I’ve never seen someone so gay pretend they’re straight, outside of myself. Obviously he’s wrong and talks like he dropped out of highschool but it’s always fun listening to the failing party

  • Travelling Tourists

    Thank God for Tucker Carlson and Fox News. If it weren’t for them the lies, like on his YouTube channel, evil would prevail and we would all be living in the dark and in poverty.
