( cheers and applause ) ♪ >> trevor: welcome to "the daily show"! thank you so much, everybody! thank you so much! thank you for tuning in! i'm trevor noah. our guest tonight, author and transgender advocate janet mock
is going to be here, everybody! really excited about that. ( cheers and applause ) but first, let's start real quick with, i mean, what else? >> everybody's beyonce twin crazy. >> beyonceed out. >> the beehive buzzing all weekn't about the birth of beyonce and jay-z's twins. >> she has everyone waiting to find out the next bit of information. >> trevor: beyonce's babies! beyonce's babies! ( cheers and applause ) yes! finally, beyonce dropped her latest children. i'm so excited. you know how powerful beyonce is? for the first time in history, people actually want to see pictures of kids on facebook. that's it. everybody's scrolling, where are they? get out of here dumb nephews, i want to see beyonce's kids. one sucked, one piece of bad news is when kanye interrupted one woman having twins, hey, lady, i'm going to let you finish but you know where this is going.
you know when blue ivy met them she said, let me explain, i'm the star, you're on the show. let's make a group. okay. i'm excited. but let's move on. from the most important news in the world to stuff that sort of happened and affects everyone even though it's only monday, this seems to be more news than we have time to get through in a single show. so we won't try. goodnight, everybody. ( laughter ) no, just joking. when we're overwhelmed we handle it in a segment called "ain't nobody got time for that." ( cheers and applause ) ♪ all right, there's no time so let's get straight into it. you know the cool trip you were taking to cuba? computer says no! >> president trump took steps to roll back some parts to have the obama administration's opening to cuba. >> halting flow of dollars to the commune government. >> bans transactions to enterprises including hotels and other tourist related businesses
ultimately known by the cuban military. >> booking your school break will be harder under this policy. >> trevor: that's right, the people hardest hit by the policy will be spring breakers. always in our thoughts. always in our thoughts. ( laughter ) you know whose probably loving this? the one friend of yours who always takes trip insurance. he's, like, oh, i'm sorry, who east wasting their mo money? yeah, yeah -- still a waste, you nerd. the reason trump is rolling back the diplomatic opening is he's fulfilling a campaign promise to marco rubio and south florida constituents, many of whom are cuban and because it's the exact opposite of what obama did, which is basically donald trump's presidencies, a series of col controlled s' punctuateda
golf weekend. he's so anti-obama, he's probably resubscribing to every spam list obama unsubscribed from. yes, i would like more information about groupon, thank you! ( laughter ) you know how people try to learn spanish to ingratiate themselves to the crowd in r? the president is, like, forget that, everyone speaks trump. >> i am so glad to be back here with all my friends in lilithle havana and cuba. santiago, cuba, you know santiago, yah? >> trevor: yah? i don't think that's spanish, yah? cant yago, yah? damn! all those impersonations. that makes me scared of the day he has to give a speech in china, looking at the people, like, ooooooh! ( laughter ) if we had time we would be
talking about why the u.s. went back to a policy that clearly wasn't working and didn't help the cuban people at all, but unfortunately -- (spanish) -- because the president is under investigation. >> the president is under fire after sending this tweet saying he is being investigated, now his legal team makes the rounds with this contradiction. >> the president has not been and is not under investigation. let me be clear, the president is not under investigation. >> but the attempts to correct the record leading to more confusion. >> and now he's being investigated by the department of justice. >> so he's being investigated for taking the action that the deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the termination. >> you now say he is being investigated after saying -- >> no. >> you just said sir that -- >> so, i do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth when i have been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation. >> trevor: i can't believe i'm saying this, but donald trump
would be better off defending himself. ( laughter ) if that's your lawyer -- ( cheers and applause ) -- he would be better off defending himself. you know, unfortunately, we just don't have the time to enjoy this magical moment. i mean, we do have the time but we don't have the time. i never said we do have the time, don't put words many my mouth! ( laughter ) anyway, let's move on. honestly, there is something we have to talk about. it's good to get the jokes out so we can relax and laugh about it, but there is one thing i want us to talk about and that is the verdict that just came in on friday on the police officer who shot and killed philando castile. you probably remember the story because his girlfriend diamond reynolds streamed it on facebook live and the officer went to trial for manslaughter and on friday the jury reached a decision. >> a verdict in a case that caused national outrage, tonight a police officer aquid on all charges in the shooting death of
a black man after a traffic stop. >> a jury acquitting the officer who fatally shot philando castile moments before this infamous video was live streamed on facebook by his girlfriend. >> trevor: every time i watch that video the question i ask myself is how, just how? how does a black person not get shot in america? because if you think about it, the bar is always moving. the goalposts are always shifting, there's always a different thing that explains why a person got shot. the person was wearing a hoodie, running away from the police, going towards the police, the person was running around at night, the person had an illegal firearm, didn't have a firearm, but at some point you realize there is no real answer. right? you see this video and then you see the verdict and you go, how? and there have been a lot of these shootings, right? we talk about this a lot. so many things to say, racism,
classism, systemic violence in a police force that oppresses people, but this story is interesting because there is something different and that is philando castile wasn't just a man shot at a traffic stop, he was a legal gun owner whose family was in the car and who had committed no crime at all. in a story of a man being shot because he was lawfully armed, you would think that one group, one powerful group in america would say something about it. this is one group you would expect to be losing their goddamn minds about this, the n.r.a., but for some strange reason, on this particular case, they have been completely silent, completely silent, and yet, according to their rhetoric, this is everything they stand against, right? an officer of the state depriving a citizen of his life because he was legally carrying a firearm.
listen to how vocal and fired up the n.r.a. gets when nothing has happened. >> there is no greater freedom than the right to survive and protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns and handguns we want. >> trevor: unless you're black, is what it should have said. like, it's interesting how the people who define themselves by one fundamental american right, the right to bear arms, show that once race is involved, the only right that they believe in is their right to remain silent. we'll be right back. ( applause ) well you're really gonna hate the new ipad pro because you can do pretty much everything with it, like type... hate it. or take notes... hate it. or even multitask. multi-hate yeah. you can do all the things you hate. great.
so, if anyone has a reason that these two should not be wed, speak now. (coughs) so sorry. oh no... it's just that your friend daryl here is supposed to be live streaming the wedding and he's not getting any service. i missed, like, the whole thing. what? and i just got an unlimited plan. it's the right plan, wrong network. you see, verizon has the largest, most reliable 4g lte network in america. it's built to work better in cities. tell you what, just use mine. thanks. no problem. all right, let's go live. say hi to everybody who wasn't invited! (vo) when it really, really matters, you need the best network and the best unlimited. just $45 per line for four lines.
um, i can't have happen what happened (♪)t time... ahem... here's my card. i'm sure you know your profits are down 8%. so, just let me know if you want to change that. ♪ i believe in you! break through!, break through! wand be less filling. beer to have more taste, because we believe that if you compromise on taste, you can taste the compromise. miller lite. hold true. why give it headlightsver on a like jewels? filled with them? a body that feels sculpted? why give it an interior where even the dash is cut and sewn by hand? it's simple: you can build a car. or you can build a cadillac.
( cheers and applause ) >> trevor: welcome back to "the daily show"! now, it's no secret that donald trump is an unpopular president, but so far, democrats have not been able to convert that feel into any election wins. in kansas, congressional race this april, republican ron estes beat out democrat james thompson, and in montana republican greg gianforte won that state, only he won that seat, the state's only house seat, even after he assaulted a reporter the night before the election, yes. that's how confident he was. he's like 100 bucks says i can
still body slam a journalist and still win. ( laughter ) in georgia the democrats have their best chance at replacing seats in congress. ossoff is a formal documentary filmmaker and congressional aid and supports clean energy and young enough to go by his college nickname "j-off." karen handel, against planned parenthood and gay adoption, and goes by her handle cant cant. seems like democrats have a shot. >> the latest poll show republican karen handel and democrat jon ossoff are running neck and neck. >> democrats are running a referendum on the trump administration. >> betting on new corporal jon ossoff, pulled in more than
$23 million, the most expensive house race ever. >> trevor: ever! total spending on this one house race could top $50 million! however's a question, how come when it comes to healthcare and education america is always strapped for cash, but politicians always manage to find money for campaigns? i wonder that. america, you know what it is? america is that friend who asks to sleep on your couch because times are such and friday night all of a sudden he's, like, yo, you seib my cash cannon? i'm about to hit the club! i thought you didn't have money. well, not for rent, of course not. and you can tell this is the most expensive house race in history because there was mother f-ing stars in these ads. >> stop donald trump, a man who edge courageous religious racism and sexism. we have to channel the great vengeance and furious anger we have for this administration into votes at the ballots box.
>> trevor: samuel jackson is the greatest of all time ( applause ) even in real life seems like he's reading a you have a tarantino script -- what do you mean you're out of pepperoni? i will strike down on thee with great vengeance and furious angra and a side of mother (bleep) cheesy bread! who talks like that in a campaign ad? who are you? ( applause ) voters in georgia are choosing between two very different candidates. handel has a long career in government and jon ossoff has been attacked for living outside the district though he grew up there and lives nearby. he's been attacked for unfortunate footage of him in college. >> imagine you had 30 seconds to make a life or death decision. would you really want this guy making those decisions for your family?
not honest, not serious, not ready. ( laughter ) >> trevor: wait, what? that's an attack ad? that's the best thing you could come up with? the guy was in college. like, i was waiting for footage of weed and those kind of videos. that's the worst? if anything this guy is a nerd. if i were you, i would prefer. i would be, like, yeah, he can run my (bleep). ( applause ) especially when you watch the debates and realize the person he's running against is the grinch. >> the minimum wage should be a living wage. if somebody's working a 40-hour work week they deserve the standard of living americans expect. >> this is an example of the fundamental difference between a liberal and a conservative. i do not support a livable wage -- >> trevor: whoa! what are you doing? shouldn't you lie? isn't that how politics works?
and why are you going with the opposite just because your opponent is there doesn't matter you have to automatically take ththe opposite side. my opponent says he's against terrorism but i say death to america. i say it the exact opposite. ( laughter ) that's so unconventional. though handel has something most conventional politicians lack. >> in this election the voters of the sixth district have a real choice between the real karen handel and the deceptive, fake jon ossoff. i have brought tremendous experience and have tremendous tentacles and commitment to this community. >> trevor: wow -- ( laughter ) okay. she was just -- uh -- super caz about she's a super mutant thing. ( laughter ) but that's why this election captured $50 million around the
country. it's because of this. >> if the democrat wins what has long been a republican seat you can be sure that will cause widespread g.o.p. worries about a so-called trump drag heading into the 2018 midterm. >> trevor: that's correct, if democrats can win in a traditionally red district with hans solo, the republicans have something to fear in the trump era. no more winning, no more putting up with his (bleep). they'll still build the wall trump wants, the only difference, it will just be around him. we'll be right back ( cheers and applause ) [ ♪ ] man,puppymonkeybaby...l tonight. puppymonkeybaby... ♪

show." my guest tonight is a best-selling author whose new book is called "surpassing certainty." please welcome janet mock! ( cheers and applause ) ♪ >> trevor: welcome to the show. >> thank you so much for having me. >> trevor: good to see you again and congratulations on your second book. your story is one that is completely unique and, at the same time, touches so many people's lives, if your first book was about changing your life and reckoning with being a transgender person in america, what would you say your intention with this book was? >> redefining my role in my first book was about the coming of age and figuring out my body in terms of the culture around me. >> trevor: right. >> this book is about my going back in and focusing on myself and not so much worrying about what other people have to say
about me. largely, it's a 20-something coming of age in the sense of career, going to college, meeting new friends, moving to a new city, but within the unique context of not necessarily being open about being trans. so there are interesting dynamics and learning lessons i got in that space. >> trevor: there were interesting lessons, for instance moving from hawaii to new york to study and experiencing what you call real racism for the first time. which is interesting because it seemed like hawaii was a world where you existed and then you moved to a place where people said, let me touch your hair, what's going on over there. >> my black girl stuff bake a focus on the mainland. growing up around a majority of people of color was a new difference and being in new york and going to the east village and having all these white well-meaning liberals being problematic and them not knowing
it. >> trevor: what do you do in that situation? how do you deal with a well-meaning person who may stumble into what i may call land mine conversation? >> language is a place of struggle, so for me it's often about using language and stories, oftentimes my own narratives, to unpack and contextualize my experiences and frame it so people will feel it's accessible enough for them to have language to talk about it themselves. when i'm thinking about the way i write, i'm thinking about my aunties i grew up around my kitchen table and his father and his family. i think about language, language that's accessible and people can feel the narrative experience of being someone who carries all these different identities in one body. >> trevor: i don't want to spend too much time on it but talking about your time working
in a strip club, for ensubstance. the salacious part of the story connects with a lot of people, they go, tell me more, you worked in a strip club. >> it is interesting. >> trevor: it is interesting. i'll talk about it sometimes, whatever. i don't like to, but whatever. ( laughter ) , no, like, when you talked about the strippers as women, you talked about not every person who is stripping coming in with the same story, not always being a story of neglect, not always being a story of abuse. what tuning some of the misconceptions around that field of work are? >> well, i think, oftentimes, like most, you know, industries that focus or are run by women, it's largely seen as something that's, like, dismissed or the people engaging in the space are oftentimes objectified, so no one speaks to or engages with sex workers. for me, so much of my feminism not only comes from my
grandmother's kitchen table but also by being backstage with these women who talk about their complicated lives, being mothers, of using this income to take care of their families. i'm sex positive but i'm also supportive of sex workers right because i understand we need bodily autonomy and give women resource when they're using their bodies to do what they need to do to take care of themselves. >> trevor: if there's one thing to take away from the book, what's would it be? >> i think we need to take the time to be ourselves. i was trying to figure out how to advocate for myself first before doing anything else with anyone. >> trevor: interesting. >> like on the airplane when they tell you to put on your mask before somebody else's. my 20s was me putting on my own mask. >> trevor: a beautiful story. "surpassing certainty" available now. janet mock, everybody. we'll be right back.
