tv The Daily Show Comedy Central June 5, 2018 11:00pm-11:31pm PDT
>> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with trevor noah. ( cheers and applause ) >> trevor: thank you. welcome to "the daily show," everybody. thank you so much for tuning in. thank you, everybody. i'm really excited. i'm really excited. our guest tonight is from "atlanta" and the new movie "hotel artemis," brian tyree henry is here, everybody!
( cheers and applause ) but first, let's get straight into it. it is officimsuit season, unless you're miss america. >> new this morning, it's just been announce that the miss america pageant is scrapping the swimsuit competition. >> what? >> yeah, gretchen carlson, a former miss america, and the organiza there, just revealed the change. the competition is also swing up the evening wear portion. women will not be judged on the gown they choose. instead, they will be asked to demonstrate their passion, intelligence, and overall understanding of the job of miss america. >> it's going to be what comes out of their mouth that we're interested in, when they talk about their social impact. >> trevor: wow. no more swimsuit competition. this really is great news for the miss america pageant, and devastating news for all the young boys who have no access to porn. ( laughter ) and i think it's great that they tried to remove the objectifying element from miss america, right, but i think they're underestimating the reptilian brain of men because if you
remove the swimsuits, you realize men are just going to find something else to perv. guys will be at home like, "oh, man! check out her biochemistry degree. yeah!" you think about it-- i ws looking through this news and going, the swimsuit competition did feel a bit outdated. because when the pageant started 90 years ago, it was only about swim suits. it was just the looks. now the contestants are being asked questions about how to fix the middle east. in fact, sometimes the answers are better than actual presidential candidates'. like, they would have an answer and trump would be like, "bing, bing, bong, bong." ( laughter ) so i think, actually, what we should do is let miss america wear whatever they want, and make presidential candidates wear bikinis. yeah, that's what we should do. which, you know what's weird is-- i know what's weird is i don't know if that makes ted cruz any more or less footing. i don't know. i don't know how i feel about that image. moving on to the world of technology, the world's biggest tech company is making some changes of its own.
>> apple has unveiled software for its least devices ios 12 with some exciting new features. >> apple unveiled features to make the deves more appealing. these include new animated emojis and updates to its augmented reality platform. >> there's now group video chats mmodating as many as 32 peop. >> ios 12 will allow to you see how much time you're spending on various iphones and ipad apps and let you put time limits on your usage. >> trevor: okay, first of all, the ipad already has a filter that limits your usage. ? called and that whole 32 people on facetime? what is that? i feel like somehow it's going to turn into me with 31 screens of my mom, just my mom going like, "i don't understand!" and i'll be like, stop calling me on every line!" ( laughter ) like, why would apple want facetime to support 32 people? that's just pressuring me to get 30 more friends. it's ununnecessary. no, you tell me, who the hell has that many friends, huh? apple is just inventing features to make you feel bthat's all we.
their next feature is probably going to be a penis measuring app that starts at nine inches. look at that. i can't use it. ( laughter ) you know what's weird about this whole thing is that apple says they want to help us use the phone less, but then they're agenda features to make us want to use the phone more. yeah, it's like a.a. trying to boost membership by agenda an open bar. they're like, "come on in, come on in." but let's move on. because for the 500tth consecutive day of the trump presidency there is drama comin. after the super bowl, it is customary for the winning team to visit the white house, you know, how the same way in england how the winner of wimbledon gets to arm wrestle the queen. she wins every time. that's why she's still the queen. well, anyways, this year, most of the super bowl champion philadelphia eagles said they would not be visiting president trump, and so the president replied, "i brith you first." >> instead of being stood up, president trump is backing out. he disinvited the philadelphia
eagles from visiting the white house today after reports fewer than 10 players plan to attend the ceremony celebrating their tory. the president tweeti "unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canevent. >> trevor: huh, that's weird. trump is cancelling events if a lot of people aren't showing up. that must be a new policy, huh... ( laughter ) cawe can we just acknowledge how weird it is that under trump, no one wants to visit the white house anymore. the golden state warriors wouldn't go last year. the eagles won't go this year. in fact, the cleveland browns released a statement saying the only reason they've never won the super bowl is because they don't want to meet trump. yeah, apparently they're not losing. they are #resisting. ( laughter ) it's gotten so bad, that, like, they can't get anyone to visit. i wouldn't be surprised if, like, jared kushner is going to be on the corner trying to get people in. just like, "come on to the white house! ladies get in free!" ( laughter ) and now, if you were the
president, and like 40 out of 50 players said that they weren't coming to your party, you would probably be embarrassed, right? or, or, you would come up with a crafty excuse about how those players didn't stand you up. they stood america up. >> donald trump saying, "the eagles disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the national anthem." adding, "the team wanted to send a smaller delegation, but fans deserve better." >> the white house has now rebranded the day as "a celebration of america." >> the president invited fans to attend a different celebration, one that he says will "honor our great country and loudly and proudly play the national anthem." >> trevor: he's simple but he's brilliant. yeah. think about it, whenever trump is losing an argument, he just grabs the anthem and holds it in front of himself. that's all he does. he holds it in front of himself. "you wouldn't hurt the anthem, would yo? it's the anthem." he probably uses the anthem to win arguments all the time. melania is probably like, "not
tonight, donald, i'm not in the mood." and donald is like, ♪ oh, say can you see "that doesn't work for me. i'm from slovenia." so instead of holding an eagles the president hosted an anthem party. if you're thinking i've never heard of an anthem party. there's no such thing. still, it featured all your favorite sports stars like mike pence and secretary of the treasury, steve "the mooch" mnuchin. you would think if you invited people over for a patriotism party, you would at least know the words to america's favorite songs. ♪ from the mountains to the prairies ♪ to the oceans white with foam ♪ god bless america my home, sweet home ♪ >> trevor: ♪ oooohhh... am-am- america ♪ yeah, look, i mean, the song has only been around for 100 years. he hasn't had time to learn the words.
don't judge him. and, you know, i'm not going to lie. i'm tired of this whole trump-anthem-kneeling debate. he says he's outraged that the players disrespect the flag and the anthem, but the truth is last year, the eagles never even ran that play. the poseason, there was never an incident of a philadelphia eagles player getting down in a kneel during the national anthem. >> the eagles were not among the players who kneeled for the national anthem. >> trevor: i'm starting to think that president trump might be full of shit. ( laughter ) i'm starting to think that the truth is, we know he cares less about n.f.l. players-- quote, unquote-- disrespecting america than he does about just keeping the issue going. because it works for him politically, because trump brag to the owner of the dallas cowboys that, "this is a very winning, strong issue for me. this one lifts me."
"it's like the anthem. it's patrick swazey and i'm baby. it lifts me." ( laughter ) but whether or not this issue is a winner for trump in general, i think that this time, he might have messed up, yeah. because you realize the eagles come from pennsylvania, and pennsylvania is a swing state, a swing state that trump only won by about 44,000 votes, which is less than one stadium full of eagles fans. yeah. he'sicking a fight with those same fans. this is not the group you want to pick a fight with. remember, these are the same people that almost burnt down their own city when they were happy. ( laughter ) yeah. these are the fans who commemorated one of the best days of their lives by literally eating horse shit. ( laughter ) and you want to start a fight with them? if i were you, mr. president, i would quit while i was ahead, because between you and the eagles, we all know who's going to come out on top. ( laughter ) we'll be right back. we'll be right back. ( cheers and applause )
give your head a mtn dew kickstart ( cheers and applause ) >> trevor: welcome back to "the daily show." as you may know, this month is the muslim holy month of ramadan. and last year, president trump received a lot of criticism when hethe first president two toan official ramadan dinner. in response, trump said, "i have no problem with ramadan. i just don't like muslims." but it looks like this year, he's changing his tune. >> tomorrow, president trump will host a dinner recognizing the muslim holy month of ramadan. the event was not held last year. the move is a return to white house tradition. so far, a guest list has not been made available. >> trevor: yay! president trump making ramadan great again.
for more on this news, we wandered around the building and pulled in the first muslim we saw. hasan minhaj, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) what's up, hasan. >> what's up, man? >> trevor: so, hasan, the white house ramadan dinner is back on the calendar officially. how big of a deal is this? >> i mean, it's huge, trevor. raman heonth when muslims cleanse themselves by fasting all day. that means no eating, no drinking, no cursing, and definitely no face filters. we know you're not a puppy. no lying during the holy month, okay! ramadan is like lent and yom kippur combined. it's the ultramarathon of sacrifice. so it's nice when the president acknowledges that with a dinner. >> trevor: yeah, but, hasan, how does it feel to have donald trump host that dinner? >> i'll be honest, trevor. wthe newswas d> trevor: of c >> that i wasn't invited. ( laughter ) >> trevor: wait,ant to be invited?
>> of course, i do! i mean, it is goin be a train wreck. ( laughter ) trump and ramadan. that's like mel gibson hosting a passover seder. ghter ) ( applause ) who would wouldn't want to see whatever that is? >> trevor: if you want an innovate, why don't you find another muslim who will be invited and just try to be a plus one. >> just chain migration my way into the dinner? i wish. i don't even know who is going. i scoured the minternet, which is like muslim internet, black twitter. g! it is killme. i just want to just sit there and share some halal k.f.c. with dinesh d'souza. >> trevor: hasan, dinesh d'souza is not a muslim. >> i know that. you know that. trump doesn't know that. ( laughter ) i will say tugh, any muslim who goes to this event is truly devout. >> trevor: what do you mean by that? >> i mean, this is the month of enduring hardship, and this fame hardship.g to be hall of
you are coming off of 16 hours of no food, no water. you're tired, you're delicious. and then mr. travel ban walks into the room, and because it's ramadan, you're not even allowed to curse that orange-t-- i'm i'm fasting. see, now that's a test from god. ( laughter ) >> trevor: i'm sure you know this, hasan, but there's a lot of speculation about why trump is hosting the dinner this year, right? some people think it's because the supreme court is about to rule on his travel ban, and he doesn't wantm to think that he hates muslims. other people think he's doing this because he's planning to do like a "game of throne style red wedding. >> or, or trump is fin inking of converting to islam. >> trevor: wait, what? >> think about it, trevor. he doesn't drink alcohol. he doesn't work on fridays. he nis casino the taj mahal. he's already 90% there. plus, it would be so dope to have our second muslim president. what's up, barry?
( laughter ) ( applause ) >> trevor: i mean, trump converting to islam. i'd have an easier time believing that if trump didn't hate muslimsch. >> you know who also hates muslims, trevor? muslims. iran hates saudi arabia. tuatyria. hasan minhaj hates kumail nanjiani. now, kumail, i told you to put it was the perfect role for me. but, no, you had to go with zoe kazan. d look whappened. your movie was barely a major hit, you selfish mother-- fasting, i'm fasting. sorry. >> trevor: hasan minhaj, everybody. we'll be right back. you gotta hold it in. you gotta hold it in. ( cheers and applause ) nothing works up my thirst for an ice-cold pepsi cola like getting buckets. whether i'm breaking ankles... or breaking hearts. hey drew! it always brings the refreshment... and i've been drinking it a long time.
hey drew... how old are you anyway, man? does it matter? uncle drew. in theaters,june th. the future tastes good. growing up i didn't have anyone who looked like me. that's why i started my blog to inspire people to be themselves. the surface laptop has already made me more productive. i'm creating mood boards. i'm editing content. or i'm running around new york with a huge bouquet of balloons. so having a light laptop is a game changer. plus the battery life on the surface lives forever. my blog is sometimes about fashion, sometimes about sprinkles. it's usually always about color. find what makes you different, because that sets you apart from everyone else.
it's dead again. i need a new phone. and you deserve that new phone on the best network. verizon. oh, we're going? sure-- ehh, not my thing. (vo) now get up to 50% off our best phones. like the samsung galaxy s9 and google pixel 2. only on verizon. when wthere came a brewmoment of truth. when we had to choose more taste or fewer calories, we chose both. what are you holding? miller lite. hold true.
>> trevor: welcome back to "the daily show." guest tonightd tony-award nominated actor who can be seen in the new movtel ar >> i need you to stand up if your boss is a millionaire. >> oh, come on, man. >> come on. that's it. now, stay standing if your boss is an asshole. good for you. >> how is this helping? >> gracias. ithe mosviolent ride in l.a. history. rich folks need to get their loadables to the bank. >> who do they use for that? >> a b of maids and grass cutters. two minutes to the cop show. >> okay, okay, i get it, man. >> all right, change of plans! keep what you can carry! let's go! >> trevor: please welcome brian tyree henry! ( cheers and applause )
( cheers and applause ) >> thankou i don'hy i feel like i bow. >> trevor: you have to bow. you have to bow. >> i don't know why i did that. i'm sorry. >> trevor: that is a sign of humility >> that is a sign of respect. >> trevor: bow to the show. first things first, congratulations on your tony award nomination. that is really exciting. that's coming up on sunday. >> yeah. h, it's crazy.ions. >> trevor: that's really exciting. you know, i was thinking, you got a tony award nomination. you were nominated for an emmy. sooner or later you're going to win all of these things. i heard you singing in an episode of "this is us." like, why not just go into music, be the real paper boi. >> i mean, because, like, i want to stay in my lane a little bit. donald has taken over the music thing. i don't want to go over there.
i'll just do theater. i'll stay and do theater and let him do the music side. >> trevor: that's nice of. >> i'm a courteous guy! you know this. i like to share, man. i'm not here to take it all. i am. >> trevor: let's talk a little bit about all the projects that you are doing. that clip that we saw is from the new movie "hotel artemis." and in that scene, you were acting with sterling k. brown-- and we'll chat about that in a moment-- but what is the premise of "hotel artemis"? it's a really interesting story. >> i don't want to give too much away, but, first of all, jodie foster. that's one. >> trevor: right. >> so it's a hotel for criminals during a water drought. >> trevor: right. >> which may happen in the near-distant future. so it's set in 2028. there's a water riot going on, and these criminals, sterling and i, who are brothers, we get injured and we have to go to this hotel that is literally made for criminals. >> trevor: right. >> you pay a membership, and jodie foster plays a nurse that takes care of all of us. but we're not the only criminals checked in. >> trevor: it is a crazy premise. >> it is insane. >> trevor: the two of you being brothers is the most believable part of the story in terms of a crazy world, because in real lifeu two are best friends.
i did not know this. >> yeah, i have known him for over 11 years. he went to n.y.u. for grad school. and after i graduated from yale, i came to new york and started doing theater, and we have been doing, like, pys here ever since. but we never got to act in scenes together. we were always what i call "acting adjacent." so i know he's over there talking but i'm like, i don't have any scenes with him. so we were acting adjacent. so this time we finally we got to do this movie, where we're like, hey, m, let's really play brothers. let's ly do it. i can't believe we made it happen. it's still unbelievable. >> trevor: because he got you the role on "this is us," didn't he? >> yes. >> trevor: the role that got you the am emmy. >> don't say all that to him. now he's going to know that and run around and tell everybody that. >> trevor: you want him to be humble. >> yes, he already won the emmy >> trevor: you got the role on his show through knowing him >> thank you, trevor. thank you. >> trevor: that's how it happens.
it's like when you are acting with somebody you have known for that long, is it harder to change the characters, or do you get into the roles even deeper? >> no, actually, you become more of a jackass because you're just playing all the time. we were there playing all the time. there was one moment where my character gets injured and i'm laying on the gurney, and i just feel this wetness on my mouth, and i guess this was his choice to give me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation? he did not-- that's not in the script. so after the director yells, "cut!" i'm like. oh, yeah. that's what we're going to do. you're going to put your mouth on mine. you can't break now. what are you going to do. you have to finish the scene. >> it's all new. that will be the sequel. i feel like when you have a chemistry like that with somebody, it's infectious on set we had just a great time. >> trevor: that seems to be a
trend wherever you go. you're known as being an affabl person. "atlanta" is every single one of us is a fan of the show where we feel like you're a family. i wonder this. why do you always refer to him as alfred and not paper boi? >> because i wanted everybody to be very clear that's who he is. you know what i'm saying. paper boi is the persona put upon him. that's not who he is. and i want to make sure to remind myself to check in with al before i check in with paper boi. because paper boi has the fame, and has all these things. but deep down he's alfred. he started as alfred, and i want to make sure he stays alfred. >> trevor: you have a lot of roles coming up. everyone loves you. people are waiting for to you play everyone role-- >> trev. stop it man. i love you. >> trevor: this is true. >> i love this man so much. >> trevor: you are dearly, dearly loved.
>> thank you. >> trevor: i'm telling you this now. are there any roles you wish you could play? there have to be dream roles where you said, "i want to play that character." >> i wanted to be bruce leroy. >> trevor: okay. >> do any of you know the movie, "the last dragon? from "the last dragon." i want to be bruce leroy. actually, i want you to be bruce leroy, and i will be sho'nuff. ( laughter ) >> trevor: don't get me started. >> i don't know. you all would watch that, right? ( cheers and applause ) you need to think about it, trev. think about this project, and, like, i think we can make it happen. >> trer: you see, and you wonder why people love you. this is what-- you go around giving people movie roles and then you wonder why people love you. >> i just want to have a chance for me and you to do something together, man. i know we would smash it. >> trevor: no, man, it would be great. thank you so much for being on the show. "hotel artemis" will be in theaters june 8. brian tyree henry, everybody. we'll be right back. ( cheers and applause ) honestly...
honestly... honestly... we should've used a condom but we got distracted. i know i should get tested for hiv but honestly honestly, we've been together for a while so getting tested never really crossed my mind. honestly, no one wants to think about hiv. but there are things that everyone can do to help protect their sexual health. condoms are a great start. get tested. and ask a healthcare provider about all of your prevention optns. because honestly... our health is worth protecting.
