noah. (cheers and applause) captioning sponsored by comedy central >> trevor: yeah! welcome to the daily show. i'm trevor noah. my guest tonight, star of the new movie "room" brie larson is here, everybody. (applause) but first the big news today, the media has been in a frenzy the past few weeks trying to predict whether or not vice president joe biden would, in fact, be running for nonvice president. at the level of hype that can only be described as bad [bleep]. >> the big question, is vice president joe biden running for president. >> is scwoa biden in or out. >> all indications are internally that all systems are go. >> joe's not going to run. >> joe biden will get in, i'm quite confident. >> a frenzy of speculation. >> hang on his every words. >> a serious waiting game and democrats are sort of biting their nails, many of them are on edge. >> trevor: they're biting their nails. they're on edge.
it sounds like they're coming off a drug trip, that's what it sounds like. come on, man, you got some of that biden, man, come on. i need some of that delaware white, man. i'll-- your district, man. but today after all that excitement, we finally got our answer. >> joe biden announcing just moments ago that he will not run for the presidency in 2016. >> unfortunately, i believe we're out of time. the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. >> trevor: oh. you wanted to run a winning presidential campaign. i thought were you just going to do your usual thing. oh. biden's announcement is big news for the rest of the democratic field, especially the frontrunner. go quickly to hillary clinton campaign headquarters for their reaction.
>> they seem excited. for more on biden declaring he's not running we go to senior campaign correspondent roy wood, jr., everybody. (applause). >> trevor: roy, what do you make of this announcement? >> trevor, after months of speculation, i think joe biden's message today was crystal clear. he's running for president.> trevor: well, no, roy, the guy literally just said he was done. >> jay-z said he was done and then he put out four more albums. >> trevor: joe biden is not jay-z. >> he's the jay-z of delaware. his secret service name is half-- . >> trevor: i don't think that's true. why can't you accept that bideni isn't running any more. >> because if we accept biden's not running there's nothingñi ee to talk about. it's just a long slow death march to the hillry nomination. how exciting is that going to be?
i've been on her tour bus. there's no tvs, trevor. it's just signed copies of hard choices and empty car tons of activia. >> trevor: roy, roy, don't get down. there's still plenty of excitement left. i mean who knows, bernie sanders could win the nomination. (applause) >> shut up, trevor. >> trevor: i'll take that as a yes. roy wood, jr., everyone. (cheers and applause) now as you probably know if you use the gregorian calender, today is october 21s, 2015. also known as the date to which marty mcfly travels forward in time, to save his family and play video games with elijah wood. happy back to the future day, everyone. yeah. turns out that 1989 movie got a lot of things right about the
future it correctly predicted biometric identification. wearable technology, and donald trump's presidency. the most amazing prediction back to the future made though, i just noticed it today. can we zoom in on that story on the side there. look at that. paul ryan may accept speaker position. oh my god! how did they know! >> there could be a breakthrough this morning in the search for a new speaker of the house. >> the search for a new house leader has been in turmoil ever since john boehner announced he was stepping down. >> gop leaders wanted paul ryan to take over as speaker of the house. the former vice presidential candidate resisted at first. >> paul ryan says he is willing to serve as speaker of the house. but there is a big but here. >> trevor: there say big but-- well, i wouldn't call it a big but. so much as a firm "but."
sure you could bounce a quarter off it. you could probably use it as your marble counselor top and eat a sandwich off of it. and you know when paul ryan does that thing-- i'm sorry, what were we taking about. sorry, sorry, sorry. oh yeah, speaker of the house. of course. ed job no republican wants because the party is soñi fractured. including paul ryan. he was definitely out of the running. but now he might be back in. what changed his mind? >> my greate worry is the consequence of not stepping up. of some day having my own kirds ask me, when the stakes were so high, why didn't you do all you could do. why didn't you stand and fight for my future when you had a chance to do so. >> trevor: do you really think this is what your kids are going to be asking you in the future. and what is your reply, what can i say, kids. back in 2015 i honestly thought the future hinged on who would be house speaker. not the fight against climate change. now get your scuba gear on and come down to dinner. (cheers and applause)
so the gop may have been saved by the man from the midwest and they were very, very grateful. >> we need a bold leader that can unite republicans. do i think paul ryan can do that? >> absolutely. >> i'm in with paul. he is the right person at the right time. >> there was overwhelming applause. i disn see anyone booing. >> trevor: yeah. that's where the republican party is right now. a successful meeting is when you don't get booed. nobody booed. nobody puked. nobody punched through the press room wall. and nobody pulled out a traditional japanese sword and disemboweled themselves. ya-- oh, wait, one guy did still a successful meeting! but here is why paul ryan is so bril yantd. he knows how much these people need him. and he's not going to come cheap. >> first he's got a list of demandzs. >> he will only run for speaker if inin-- everyone in the house unites behind him on the republican side. >> he says he wants changes for how the party can fire a speaker. >> eliminating the ability of
house members to remove the speaker with a simple majority vote. >> and the last point, last point is personal. i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> trevor: damn, paul ryan going ham. i haven't seen a list of demand this crazy since the ten commandments. thou shallt not murder. what am i going to do with people i don't like? for more we go to senior correspondent jessica williams, everybody. jess, you think that conservatives will be able to meet paul ryan's list of demands. >> well, trevor, i hope they can cuz when they are done with those, i just got a new list. >> trevor: wait, paul ryan actually wants more? >> oh yeah, definitely. before he accepts a job as speaker paul ryan wants a protein shake found taib. -- found taifnl he wants a family sets of segues. to be on the cover of men's health magazine forever.
it looks like a helicopter tore get to mexico in case things go sour. and oh my gosh, for some reason a sephora shopping spree with beyonce and nikki minaj for me. >> i was in the sephora spree, that all seems doable for the republicans. >> he also wants to get his own theme song. >> trevor: that is easy to do. >> written and performed by all four of the beatles. >> trevor: jessica, two of them are dead. >> if they really want paul ryan to be the speaker, the gop is going to have to ♪ come together ♪ right now ♪ and dig up those dead beatles ♪ >> trevor: thank you, jessica. jessica williams, everybody. we'll be right back.

>> trevor: welcome back. turn on the news and will you see much that is appalling. but tonight jordan clepper sets out to find a different kind of story. >> reporter: the news today is depressing and sad. >> what a roller coaster day on wall street. >> but who is to say there is not a story out there that can make you feel good. i'm jordan klepper and i'm going to go out there and get a happy ending. i had head to illinois to celebrate lottery winner susan and danny who recommend won $250,000. >> what made you buy a ticket that day? >> i usually buy one every once in a while when i get coffee. >> he is an avid lottery player,

legislature. leaving precious state funds frozen and danny and susan [bleep] out of luck. >> like you know, winning a ravel and not getting the prize or having a christmas with absolutely no prentds. >> or like winning the lottery and not getting paid. it's exactly like that. >> that's exactly what happened. >> it is heightened situation. excuse me for one second. change of plans. screw it i'm going to get my happy ending. susan and danny's money can't wait for the illinois legislature and governor to get off their asses and agree on a budget. so i'm going trait straight to the governor's office to get them to sign this check that guarantees-- that guarantees susan and danny their money. sure they're going to try to stop me. but i'm on a mission.

cobb see-- the dog, i just lost it it is one of the very few things i wasn't there for. that was one moment that i wasn't there on set. and so i just-- his little, he has this smirk that is just-- it just kills meevment you kind of see it a little bit in that clip, maybe. but every time i see his face i want to cry. >> trevor: he's amazing. he is going to be great. i hope he follows your path because you were a child actress who is now a functioning human being. >> true, very, very true. >> trevor: so i hope that he follows your path and continues. >> the big difference though is i didn't start working until about two years ago. so he's got way more credits than i did. we'll see. >> trevor: but he's also not up for an oscar or is he? >> he might be. no one is up for oscars now. let's not start rumors. >> trevor: i think you-- if you are not getting an oscar, i'm going to protest, yes. >> protest, what? >> trevor: the fact that you
