tv The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Comedy Central August 10, 2015 9:22am-9:57am PDT
-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com comedy central from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart. (cheers and applause) ♪ >> jon: welcome to "the daily show"! my name is jon stewart! (cheers and applause) tonight a young gentleman by the name of j. j. abrams will be joining us! (cheers and applause) i'm very excited to talk to him. before we do that, let's take a trip back in time. (laughter)
join me, won't you? the year was 2012. "lincoln" taught america slavery was bad. carly rae jepsen suggested we call her, but made it clear we didn't necessarily have to. (laughter) and the republicans took an old-fashioned electoral clobbering, when the guest c.g.i. artist available could not muster a lifelike version of mitt romney. it was the worst news for republicans since 2008 when they tried to defeat obama with the world's angriest man and what turned out to be six medium-clever raccoons stacked like a human woman. (cheers and applause) but you know what they say -- never trust raccoons in a pantsuit? no! you know what they say, failure is a learning experience.
>> the fundamental problem we're trying to address is actually having people in the community to make the case to hispanics and to women. >> the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately, continues to grow. >> focus groups described our party as narrow-minded, out of touch and, quote, stuffy old men. >> jon: continuing... "shriveled angry mummies, writhing, almost hypnotized under a billionaire money fundy shower, raining war and destruction throughout the hemispheres. (laughter) that's all. really. so the self-diagnosed problem with the republicans in 2012 with you their image, rich, out
of touch, old men, alienating latinos and women. they have been working to fix that. next -- >> donald trump is the clear leader of the republican pack, make no mistake. 20% of republicans back donald trump, 7% ahead of his closest rivals. (cheers and applause) >> jon: yes! the living embodiment of everything reps were trying to exorcise from their party just escalated down on their parade. >> i'm really rich. the total is $8,737,540,000. when mexico sends its people, they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists. she wanted to breast pump in front of me, and i may have said that's disgusting. i may have said something else. i thought it was terrible. she's a horrible person --
(laughter) >> jon: how's that outreach going to latinos and women again? (laughter) i'm sure trump was only disgusted about breast feeding. i'm sure it was the first time he realized, whoa, boobs can do that? boy! that's the craziest thing i ever saw. (laughter) thrump is even worrying the g.o.p.'s most important constituents, the six horsemen of the cash apocalypse who campaign the finance campaigns. >> republican donors are getting worried about how things are going in the republican party. >> the investors are worrying about the damage he's doing on the debate stage. >> jon: trump is a rich, crazy, egotistical monster!
people like him are supposed to buy the candidates, not be them! (laughter) in our system of government, one branch has the money, and the other branch does what the one branch with the money tells them to do! he's screwing the whole pooch! (laughter) but even if the rnc can't control the candidates or their message tore the voters, or the irrational, emotional desires ruling the voters, one thing they can control. >> we need to control the debates, the party needs to control the debates. >> the republican thunderdome. top ten candidates from the five most recent national polls will make the main stage. >> it is still anyone's j. j. abrams as to who exactly will take the stage. >> they're trying desperately to boost the poll numbers. >> so who gets a spot? >> jon: will it be you? (laughter) you should stop watching and check the polls just in case one
of your friend put your name in as a prank and you're now doing better than lindsey graham. (laughter) (cheers and applause) so... they're going to choose based on the polls. but what do you do when, i don't know, the last four qualifying spots for your debate are locked within a statistical tie within the margin of error of your polls? >> if you're in the top ten in the polls, you're in, if not, you're out. >> fox, hosting the debate, hasn't revealed precisely which polls it wil it will use to deco is on stage. >> they'll look at the polls and roger ailes will pick whoever he wants. at least that's what he told me in our secret meeting... (laughter) (cheers and applause)
big problem for the republicans seem to be that they want their candidates to be civil and more accessible to minority outreach but the only way to get more noticed and qualified for the ebaits is to take on the cheet-o, dust-faced elephant in the room. >> if my numbers go up just because i call donald trump a jackass -- i mean, that's not why i want to rise in the polls. >> right. >> jon: i don'.>> jon: i don't e judged by my impertinent language spoken harshly to a yankee finance year and scallywag! i want to be judged by the puritity of my lineage and my family's sweet tea recipe! and let me tell you this, the secret ingredient is -- sugar! how far has trump lowered the
discourse in six weeks since he cannonballed in the race. >> would you join the effort to inspire a more civil way of making points if they drift off the civility reservation, let's don't immediately communicate that to them -- >> jon: that from a guy who not only backed a candidate with a name synonymous of something you don't want to know but considers this a civil way of discussing women's health care. >> in my days they used bayer aspirin for contraceptives, the gals put it between their knees. >> jon: ahhh! well, just be thankful that most of the older republican donors only shoot cobwebs and dust partials. seriously, every time he ejaculates, it's like open ago very old book. (laughter) now, mr. chairman -- (applause) mr. chairman, did you ever consider that maybe the g.o.p.'s
problem isn't hostile moderators or a liberal media or too many debates or not enough spanish language leaflets? maybe the problem is registered republicans in their honestly appraisal of the state of our nation, the issues most important to them and the 17 competing visions of america's future offer have decided this is what they like. >> they're rapists -- >> jon: get out now! the call is coming from inside ♪ [hero female] we're all familiar with this: axe daily fragrances, which comes in a black can. but what you wouldn't have seen is this, axe dry spray anti-perspirant. it goes on dry and keeps you dry with no visible residue. why are you touching your armpit? i was just checking to see if it was dry.
