tv   midnight With Chris Hardwick  Comedy Central  May 1, 2017 11:31pm-12:02am PDT

11:31 pm
fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes i must say is you. >> you mean me personally. >> well, your show, i love your show, i call it deface the nation. captioning sponsored by comedy central captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org .[cheers and applause] >> chris: it's 29 minutes until midnight and i asked everyone how their weekends were and no one asked me how my weekend was. well it was fine! on saturday the presidency of donald trump passed the 100 day mark, meaning this prank has officially gone on for too long. with the donald unable to get much of his agenda through congress, he's fallen back on what he does best: bull (/ bleep/ ) about how great he . he's the best, just ask him. in fact, though the next presidential election is still three and a half years away, his 2020 campaign is spending $1.5 million to run this ad touting his accomplishments: >> donald trump sworn in as president one hundred days ago. america has rarely seen such
11:32 pm
success. -- supreme court justice, confirmed. >> chris: that sounds like the action news guy voice. another instance of the most over reported political story of the year. abc went to the midwest to check in with working class white voters: >> what rating would you give him? >> a b plus. he needs to stop twittering. >> his tweets bother you? >> i don't read them. >> chris: well, it's only a matter of time before trump responds on twitter: "old bag in a diner only gives me a b+? i give your dumb sweater an f, titanic lady!" ya you should of followed the necklace to the end of the ocean. i'm tweeting and out of characters. comedians, what grade would you give president trump on his first 100 days? pardis. >> a great restaurant is a to d.
11:33 pm
i give trump khe chipolte. >> chris: ana marie. >> a, standing on obama's accomplishments. >> chris: gene afplt. >> the grade of doing meat? this president is nothing but lips and assholes. [cheers and applause] >> chris: next up, big boy papers. trump was reported by john dickerson. things went well at first: trump got to say "bigness" again and he also showcased some terrifying jokes he's been workshopping: >> these are phones, secure phones. they have the red button. >> where does that get you? >> a pepsi. >> chris: oh, i get it. it's funny because everyone is scared about you, the president, causing a nuclear holocaust?
11:34 pm
i don't know which is more disturbing, him joking about his soda button being a weapon of mass destruction or that our president is a really (/ bleep/) prop comic. the interview's climax happened when dickerson asked trump about his wire-tapping allegations against former president obama. trump had this to say: >> but i'm asking you, i want to hear it from president trump. president >> i don't have to ask me. you can have your opinions. i have my opinions. >> i want your opinions, you're the president of the united states. >> thank you, that's enough. chris: watch how long -- [laughing] [ applause ] >> then mr. dickerson was never heard from again. comedians, what was on that paperwork trump is pretending to read? pardis. >> the menu for his favorite
11:35 pm
restaurant also chipolte. >> chris: points. gina. >> this is the best paper ever, no one has had paper like this, it's the best paper in the world, ever. you will never see paper like this ever again. i have the best paper. [cheers and applause] >> chris: ana marie cox. >> a copy of the constitution with all of the pesky rights removed. >> chris: points, points. next up critical mass. as we've been saying it's been 100 hundred days since a hack zach filled with -- took the oath of office in front of a record breaking number of supporters, as you can see here in this official photo from the -- look at that. but despite some big wins, like bringing fredrick douglas back to life and personally driving an 18 wheeler full of illegals into the gulf of mexico, some
11:36 pm
people online just will not give the president a break. like this one guy with this sarcastic tweet: -- a quote. "while our wonderful president was out playing golf all day, the t.s.a. is falling apart, just like our government!" or this one. "...why is he campaigning instead of creating jobs & fixing obamacare? get back to work for the american people!" hell, you could go all the way back to election night, and this guy criticized of the very system that got president trump elected: "the electoral college is a disaster for a democracy." so who is this jackass who had nothing nice to say about pretty much anything president trump -- of course that is president trump. [cheers and applause] so comedians, since the president's tweets have an uncanny habit of not aging well, what's another tweet the internet will dig up that badly missed the mark? gina. >> what happens in a bus with billy bush stays in a bus with billy bush.
11:37 pm
>> chris: points. ana marie. >> nuclear wars are terrible and no one should start one. >> chris: points, yes. so bad. pardis. >> never disappointed when i fly united. >> chris: points. points. [ applause ] >> it's the personal touch. >> chris: let's check the scoreboards. from "the daily show with trevor noah" on comedy central, her hour special "ticking boxes" is streaming now on seeso, it's gina yashere. [cheers and applause] host of "with friends like these" podcast on crooked media network, it's ana marie cox. [cheers and applause] host of "mideast minute" on comedycentral.com, it's pardis parker. [cheers and applause] and now it's time for tonight's
11:38 pm
#hashtagwars. donald trump's presidency has often been compared to that of former president andrew jackson. they both rose to power on a wave of populism, they both have probably gone into the oval office just to shout the "c-word", and their hair always makes them look like they're recovering from a tornado. and in an interview with the washington examiner today, we got to hear some interesting thoughts on old hickory from old dickory. >> -- a little later you wouldn't of had the civil war. the civil war, he says r. said there is no reason for this. people don't ask that question. why was there the civil war. why could that not of been worked out? >> the answer is slavery. [laughing] >> chris: several problems with this. first... it would have been very hard for andrew jackson to be mad about the civil war, given that he died 16 years earlier. second, he says "people don't ask" why the civil war happened, even though that's literally a question on the test to become
11:39 pm
an american citizen. [laughing] psst... the answer is "slavery!" clearly, president trump has an understanding of history that is far beyond ours, so we're gonna take this as an opportunity to learn with tonight's hashtag, #trumpteacheshistory. examples: "we have nothing to fear but stairs" and "the first moon on the room was stretch armstrong and neil degrasse tyson." i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock, begin. pardis. >> great depression. wait till i'm in office. >> chris: alright. points. ana marie. >> speak softly and carry a small dick. >> chris: pardis. >> d-day is okay, double d-day much better. >> chris: points. gina. >> harriet tubman a great train conductor. i love a train. choo choo.
11:40 pm
>> chris: ana marie. >> alexander wept, no more eastern european women to marry. >> chris: ana marie. >> ask not what the pussy can grab for you but you can grab with the pussy. >> chris: gina. >> all men are created equal except blacks, his panics, gays, jews, how much time do we have -- >> chris: points. pardis. >> what are you not getting about muhammad. do i have to draw you a picture. >> chris: points. points. gina. >> malcolm x, great rapper. [laughing] >> chris: points. perfect. perfect place to end. >> chris: send us your #trumpteacheshistory and tag them @midnight to keep the game going. we'll be right back with more @midnight. the greatest show in the world.

11:45 pm
too bad we couldn't show the robot dicks. but not all graphic designers are as talented as ours, which is why the world is full of bad logos. so comedians, i'm going to show you a strange logo and for 250 points i want you to tell me the company's tagline. first up, a czech sausage company called "kostelec." [laughing] >> chris: gina. kostelec, technically it's not cheating. >> chris: points. next up a greek restaurant called "mama's baking." you can just take a minute out to digest that image. see what is going on there. ana marie. >> extra yeast. chris: yes, points.

11:48 pm
over the weekend social media blew up over the fyre festival. it's a music festival on a supposed private island where tickets cost up to $12,000. it's like coachella for people who have never flown coach. it was such a bad show that attendees have filed a hundred million dollar lawsuit. the advertising promised the festival would include models on boats and models on jet skis and models feeding tiny beach pigs, which is a very specific fetish. but when the affluent attendees arrived, they got this. instead of beach cabanas, they got these disaster relief tents that look like a quarantine zone in a zombie movie. attendees immediately took to twitter to expose the conditions, including this
11:49 pm
gourmet meal, which looks more like something a ten year old latchkey kid makes for himself while his mom is at a casino. it was a disaster. they weren't ready. no infrastructure. nothing set up. people arrived, they didn't tell people, don't come. they showed up, the festival was not happening. comedians, as security for the fyre festival, give us an announcement that will calm down the frantic one-percenters. we'll get your answers after the break and be right back with more @midnight!
