10:01 am
just fly to akron and get there in one piece. that's what's going on right now. (applause) now, it wasn't like we're both candidates shining bright lights in a field that, let's be honest, is freaking out a lot of people. because over the last few months america has gone from yes we can to yes we canada? >> google trends tweeted searches for a move to canada are high than anytime in google history. >> started spiking on super tuesday as the results began rolling in. >> trevor: this is where we've gotten, to america! it's gotten to bad and this is true if you type "move to" google automatically goes to canada. it's like google is saying, we're scared, too! let's go! let bing deal with that maniac! (laughter) makes sense because bing is the only product trump promotes more
10:02 am
than himself -- bing, bing, bing! (laughter) (applause) and if you were considering taking the plunge north, then you might be interested that this week the white house had a maple-scented visitor. >> today, obama welcomes trudeau to the oval office for the first time. >> canada's young, enhanced new prime minister justin trudeau arrived with wife sowf yand three kids for tonight's steak dinner at the white house. >> trevor: ain't no party like a canada party because a canada party is respectful and ends promptly at 10:30. (applause) on the dot. now, there has been a buzz, or a lot of buzz, really, over canada's new prime minister justin trudeau about how magnetic and charismatic he is. to be honest, i don't see it. i honestly don't see it. i mean, look, the guy is sort of attractive, you know, like the way his hair falls and, you know, those eyes you could get lost in and the square jaw of a
10:03 am
mountie. you know, if you're into that kind of thing. so, fine, he's an 8. (laughter) by politician standards he's, like, some number we haven't even discovered yet. well, they have discovered it in canada because their schools are way better. (audience reacts) but still, the point is -- the point is, you see, if you're canadian you would have seen that joke coming. (laughter) but, still, the point is, why are people losing their heads? just because he's not the usual political stuffed shirt? >> i was a snowboard instructor, i was a bouncer in a nightclub, a white water river guide for many years, i worked as a teacher. >> trevor: why do i suddenly have an urge to throw my panties at the screen? i don't even wear panties. >> just the other day the prime minister was cuddling the panda at the zoo (audience reacts) >> trevor: are you happy! are you happy!
10:04 am
(cheers and applause) i've never had these feelings to anyone, eh! and my favorite thing about prime minister trudeau -- >> four years into his political career, he chose an unusual way to prove he was more than the spoiled son of canadian royalty. he turned an annual charity boxing match into a political opportunity, challenging patrick brazeau as senator from the opposition who had a black belt incraty. canadians took one look at the twof them and said trudeau had lost his mind. >> trevor: hold on. i thought it was weird enough that this guy who was a canadian politician, but can we talk a second just about this guy? what the hell is going on? are canadian voters electing people straight out of the expendables? what's going on? he looks like he should be guarding a door at a strip club, not anything in government. (laughter) by the way, what's crazy is trudeau kicked that guy's ass. yeah, he kicked his ass and he
10:05 am
made a political point! (applause) so he's tough, ripped and friends with pandas. i mean, surely there is nothing else this man can do to make you love him even more. >> prime minister trudeau has allowed a 25,000 syrian refugees to enter into the country. that is something that the united states has not done. >> trevor: and he loves refugees?! (cheers and applause) ahhh! ahhh! you happy now? you have all of me! take it all, trudeau! (cheers and applause) moving on. religion. a system of core beliefs that units us all and trying to prove whose god is the dopist. one american town is in the midst of the battle.
10:06 am
ronny chang filed this report. >> for thousands of years, jews, muslims and christians have been fighting ability which book is right about god stuff like jersey housewives of the middle east and now 400 years of religious warfare coming to america. >> blending of christians, jews and muslims. >> the try-faith initiative in omaha, nebraska, is opening a synagogue, church and mosque in the same location. i sat down with the rabbi, the reverend and the muslim guy in charge to find out what the hell they were thinking. >> we fundamentally think peace is possible and feel this can be a model for others. >> trevor: don't you think it's arrogant to fly in the face of 1400 years of hating each other? >> religions do not teach us to hate, religions teach us to hug. >> does it make you want to kill him? >> hug him. they were one step of jihadding a crew said all over each other. doesn't anyone in omaha see how
10:07 am
dangerous this is? >> innocent people will die. thank you. this is mark christian, president of the global faith institute. he used to be a muslim and you will never guess what religion mark christian converted to. >> i was a sunni muslim and a now a follower of christ. i'm a two-faithed kind of person. >> you're two-faced, yeah. two-faithed. you have two different personalities. >> faithed. not faces. >> two. faith. after a another half hour of pronunciation less sense we got down to the scary (bleep). muslims and christians and jews do not agree on their ideology whatsoever. the radical muslims and jihadist will find any reason to keel kyl many people in the try-faith ministry. >> see, terrorists hate cooperation. when yieth hears about this, they will drop everything and head straight for omaha, if they can find it. >> i know it seems like a good idea, like kfc mixed with taco
10:08 am
bell and pizza hut, fantastic on paper but will slowly kill all of us. >> there are three of us and we're the faces of kind of like three guys who have fallen in love with this same woman but this woman's love is greater and vaster than our own that she can have a relationship with all of us. >> foursome, got it. no. and it's a lot of fun having a foursome. >> there is a lot of fun taking place when three great faiths come together and acknowledge they worship the same god. >> come together, yeah. he's going to be pretty pissed when he realizes why we just high-fifed. these are just three progressive fun loving dude who want to party down with the weird ghost thing they all believe in. think of the practicality, like a religious tou turducken. how do you fit a church and synagogue and muslim into one
10:09 am
building. >> they have a each building. will be separate? each faith communities are existing in separate facilities. >> this is not the taco and donut shop you dratted created before. >> the big deal? globally, two out of three muslims wants to overthrow the government and apply sharia law and live under the leadership of islamic state. >> i knew it. i had to warn them about the scary muslim guy. i'm sorry, can you cover your ears one second? thank you. listen, two out of every three muslim wants time pose sharia law on the entire world. >> that's ridiculous first, and second fundamentalist of all stripes want to impose their views on all the world. >> who told you this lie? can i stop you guys? sir, you're being really aggressive now and i need you to take it down a few notches. >> okay, as many notches as you like. >> these guys talk a big game of
10:10 am
tolerance. what happens if mark christian is right? what happens if they do get attacked? >> we will stand together and defend ourselves and support each other. >> with your guns and bombs. e don't need any guns. we have ideas. >> i'm not going to lie. you're scaring the (bleep) out of me right now. >> i don't mean to. they just wouldn't give up. there was only one thing that could take down the tri-faith initiative. every relationship i have had has been destroyed by trying to what to watch on netflix. >> madmen. homeland. as i expected, they were falling apart. >> i used to like girls and then i gave up on h.b.o. >> no way. portlandia? yeah. easier than i thought. if a jew, a christian and muslim can walk into a war and it's not a joke and they don't kill each other, maybe there is hope for peace in the middle east -- of america. >> trevor: ronny chang, everybody.
10:11 am
we'll be right back. we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) yeah, i was just talking uhabout yourico?... emergency roadside service and how it's available 24/7 and then our car overheated... what are the chances? can you send a tow truck please? uh, the location? you're not going to believe this but it's um... it's in a tree. i wish i was joking, mate, but it's literally stuck in a tree. (car horn honking) a chainsaw? no, no, all we really need is a tow truck. day or night, geico's emergency roadside service is there for you.

10:13 am
it was board-game night with the dalai lama. great guy. terrible player. ♪ go paperless ♪ don't stress, girl ♪ i got the discounts that you need ♪ it's a balancing act, but i got to give the people what they want -- more box. any words for the critics? what can i say? critties gonna neg. [ applause ] the what?! [ laughs ] hi i'm kristie. and i'm jess. and we are the bug chicks. we're a nano-business. windows 10 really helps us get the word out about how awesome bugs are. kids learn to be brave and curious and all kids speak the language of bug. "hey cortana, find my katydid video." oh! this is so good. if you're trying to teach a kid about a proboscis. just sketch it on the screen. i don't have a touch screen on my mac, i'm jealous of that. you put a big bug in a kids hands
10:14 am
and change their world view. who's the genius who puts a girl in heels on a subway grate? miss monroe, eat a snickers. why? you get a little cranky when you're hungry. better? much better. this scene will never make the cut. >> trevor: welcome back to "the daily show"! you know, guys, we've gotten to m%aq!e past yearp so well over (laughter) i mean, at this point, he's practically a member of the family, specifically the uncle who hits on your wife at funerals. but there is so much about trump that remains unexamined and that's why tonight we're introducing a new segment where
10:15 am
we spotlight an obscure moment from trump's past. >> i could do this all day. got involved in politics beyond -- >> and i believe in trashing your enemies. >> i look in that fat ugly face of hers and say rosy, you're fired. (applause) >> trevor: pure gems. today's lost trump nugget, a 1999 interview with the "new york times" in which trump shares his thoughts on poor people. but before we get to that, let's acknowledge donald trump spent a lot of time boasting about his tremendous wealth. in fact, according to this pie chart we made up, trump devoted a full 58% of his campaign the telling us how rich he is. (laughter) yet trump has also managed to attract the support of many low-income voters as trump himself will attest. >> actually, the people i resonate the best with are poor people and people who are really blue collar. my base and the people who like me best are poor people and
10:16 am
working class people and i'm very proud of that. >> trevor: it makes sense. opposites attract. it's the same reason why bern and ernie can't stop (bleep). it's a thing. (laughter) but it's true. poor people love trump. in fact, among the poorest 50 counties in the united states that have voted thus far, trump has won 45 of them, and one of the things they love most about trump is his honesty. >> trump dominating among voters looking for a political outsider who tells it like it. >> he doesn't care what people think. >> trump speaks the truth. he's not politically correct and he says what is on his mind. >> trevor: yep, he says what is on his mind (mocking) and people are looking for a president with the guts to tell mexicans they're rapists! take that, ab abraham lincoln, u
10:17 am
coward rm plaids trump think about his base? let's book look up a the interview with the "new york times." i watched politicians bragging about how poor they are and i said to myself -- if they can stay so poor for so many generations, maybe this isn't the kind of person we want to be electing to higher office. how smart can they be? it's a rhetorical question, but lab rates -- they're morons. (laughter) incredible. donald trump told the newspaper that he thinks poor people, the people voting now for him in droves are morons. something a cartoonishly evil comic book villain would say -- people are morons now get out to have the soup kitchen so i can bull doze it to build a water park for my pet tiger! (laughter) and just in case trump's disdain for the poor wasn't entirely clear, he goes on to say, do you want someone who gets to be president and that's literally the highest-paying job he's ever
10:18 am
had? yeah, so, in other words, trump wants america to be a blu plutocracy. trump thinks basically a normal-income person can't be president. if you don't earn rich money, you will be (bleep) all over the white house, running around, secret service will say, what are you doing? you go, i don't know, i'm middle class. my kids are in public school! (laughter) no one slamming your fan base would destroy a candidate but we know that's not going to happen to trump. once trump is presidential, this segment will become illegal. there you have it. we'll be right back! (cheers and applause)
10:19 am

(laughter) >> trevor: you know what, let's go over specifics in the book.
10:25 am
one thing i did pick up in this book is how -- and i connected with that -- is how being a traveler of the world has shaped who you are as a person. >> absolutely. i mean, i'm not a chef, but i'm a food writer. i wouldn't be able to do what i do if i didn't have the life that i did. when i published my first cookbook, all these haters were, like, what the hell does a model know about food? which i can understand. but i always loved to eat, and i wouldn't be able to do what i do if i hadn't had that career as a model because that afforded me the ability to travel to all these exotic and beautiful places from bali to seychelles to paris, what have you. >> trevor: it's funny, when you say that, i'm picturing the haters. and you're going, i traveled the world. they're going, yeah, you traveled the world denying the food. no, no! (laughter) >> first of all, when i was a model 20 years ago, you didn't have to be quite as thin as you do now and, you know, we're freaks of nature. like, it's not normal to be 5'9"
10:26 am
and weigh 115 pounds. >> trevor: one thing i picked up from the book that honestly was surprising, i guess two themes, really, one, a very strong feminist point of view talking really about body shaming, about the ideas behind what the ideal female body is and also yourself talking about your scar. that's a side of you i think a about. >> you know, most of my family has graduate degrees and some of my distant relatives have nobel prizes. so, after college, i spent most of my 20s modeling and i know for a fact that is no accomplishment of my own, that the alchemy of the genetics that my parents gave to me. >> trevor: yeah. so i was in my late 20s, making a career change, not knowing where i was going but knew i wanted to do something more meaningful and the first step of that was showing my scar
10:27 am
and being open about my scar. i know a lot of young girls look at those magazines and think that's how they need to be, and those aren't their genetics. so i did suffer a lot of guilt or mixed feelings about how i had made my living. >> trevor: sort of perpetuating the idea behind what you see is -- >> exactly. and it's not an accident that 95% of people who have anorexia are women. that's a fact. also, now, having spent ten years on american television, i can tell you that people talk about my appearance a lot more than they talk about tom calicio's appearance because he's a man. nobody asks him how he keeps his figure on "top chef," right? (applause) that's fine. lucky for the show, i happen to be a really vain bitch, so -- (laughter) -- so i want to look good, and i have three people whose sole job it is to make me look good, and
10:28 am
they have dresses in four sizes because i gained, like, 17 pounds. i consume a (bleep) load of food on the show and what it takes me six weeks to gain, it takes me 12 weeks, at least, to lose. i have a lot in common with the canadian justin trudeau. i, too, box. putting it out there. (applause) >> trevor: really fascinating. but i have a crush on him, too. him and the pope. i know it's sad to say. (laughter) i'm not even catholic, but i'm kind of sweet on the pope. i think he's a really cool pope. >> trevor: it's the hat. (laughter) it's the hat. the season finale of "top chef" airs thursday, march 17, 9:00 p.m. on bravo. and "love, loss and what we ate" is available now. padma lakshmi, everyone!

10:35 am
[ laughter ] [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ] [ laughter and applause ] [ women screaming ] [ applause ] the first question is for the reverend al sharpton. reverend sharpton, you are not a roman catholic. indeed you are an ordained minister in the pentecostal church. you're pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion rights, and support women in the priesthood, all of which run counter to church teachings. in addition, you were the chief figure behind the infamous tawana brawley hoax and were once caught on an fbi surveillance tape, discussing a scheme to distribute cocaine while wearing a leather cowboy hat. [ laughter ] given all this, isn't your candidacy for pope at best a long shot? tim, i may be the underdog in this race.
10:36 am
but i'm the only candidate telling the truth. the catholic church has got to change. we got too much incense and not enough common sense. you understand? we got too many people's investments and not enough investments in peoples. you understand? not enough touching people's hearts, too much touching people's kids. [ laughter ] cardinal rinaldi, your response. cardinal urbino, rebuttal? [ laughter ] anyone? [ laughter ] all right, the next question is for cardinal degiaccomo. cardinal degiaccomo, you're 217 years old. [ laughter ] isn't your age bound to be a factor here? [ whispering ] tim, i will not make age an issue. i refuse to exploit for political gain
