tv   The Daily Show  Comedy Central  May 3, 2017 11:00pm-11:32pm PDT

11:00 pm
>> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with trevor noah. (cheers and applause). >> trevor: welcome to the daily show, everybody. thank you so much for tuning in. i'm trevor noah. my guest tonight is starring in the fox mini sears, shots fired. sanaa lathan is here, everybody. but first up, there's so much going on today. but i just want to start with
11:01 pm
just one weird little thing that you might have missed. >> a tweet poking fun at president trump and his wife melania was apparently liked by melania trump's own twitter account. thises with a tweet, seems the only wall donald trump has built is the one between him and melania. but it's not clear if melania trump liked the tweet herself or if she was hacked. her account has since unliked that tweet. >> trevor: i'm sorry, if she was hacked? no, no, really? hacked? that would be the most low-key hacker in the world. i am in, sir, i'm in the main frame. we did it, guys. we liked the tweet. great work, all right, the tax returns, no, no, no, just leaf-- all right, done, done, done. like i don't know what happened here but it was fun to be reminded of that great moment from inauguration when melania's face changed. and that moment also shows that melania is the same person on twitter as she is in real life. she liked something, and then
11:02 pm
she unlikes it. but this wasn't the only awkward twitter moment from team trump. >> a picture of the president's steve bannon shows how the tracks its record on fulfilling campaign promtions. >> a rabbi yesterday tweeted a picture with bannon, a quite board list in the background marks the administering's progress. some items are checked off, for example, tripling the number of immigration and customs enforcement agents. >> trevor: no big surprise that steve bannon uses a white board. sir, you want a black board in here. actually, i would be more comfortable with a white one, thanks. just feel safer. and then this morning, there was this in the senate judiciary committee. >> fbi director james comey was back in front of lawmakers answering questions about russia. and his decision to tell the public about the investigation into hillary clinton's, mail. >> look, this is terrible. it makes me mildly gnaw shus to think that we might have had some impact on the election.
11:03 pm
>> trevor: james comey said him affecting the election made him feel mildly gnaw shus. which is interesting. because this is how the rest of america felt. but let's move on. let's move on. as much as hillary loss losing the election might have felt like the end 69 world, we know it it wasn't. because the actual end of the world is climate change it may not be the news of the day but technically climate change is the news of every day which is why people in the street are doing this. >> thousands of people took to the streets in the u.s. and around the world on saturday to protest against president donald trump's climate change policies. the people's climate march was held in 300 cities, chicago, denver, seattle. more than 200,000 people marched here on the national mall. >> thousands who oppose his environmental agenda have literally surrounded the white
11:04 pm
house this afternoon. >> trevor: aha!! joke's on you. the president's not at the white house. he's out playing golf, yeah! if people really want trump's attention it, protest on the 2k3w068 course or even better get aty time ahead of him and just go real slow. just like don't hit the ball, just-- and he with be like hey, ass holes, you're not doing anything. and you be like yeah, it's a metaphor for your presidency. (applause) now most recent protests have been about things that could potentially happen. you know like women losing the right to choose. or science being defunded or trump's plan to change the national bird from the bald eagle to a bucket of kfc. but unlike those issues climate change isn't something that could happen, it's something that is happening happening. >> nasa and noaa scientists today declared 2016 the hottest year on record. it's the third record-breaking
11:05 pm
year in a row. >> fearly all of the 17 hottest years on record have occurred since 2 thousand. >> in just the last ten years we've seen an increase in wildfires and also draught in the southeast, not to mention flooding. >> in the arctic they've had a month full of temperature in the 90st that has melted the soil so deep that bodies from shallow graves are coming up, and that has caused an anthrax outbreak. >> trevor: aahh! what the [bleep]. climate clang is so bad it's making another season of the walking dead? what? like if anyone needs to be fighting hard for clim at change t should be all the serial killer was didn't bury their bodies deep enough, that is who it should be. what, the shallow graves are coming up. we need to fight for climate change. one of the most frustrating things about climate change is that as humans, there are many things we can do, right? and many things we shouldn't. you guess which list president trump is working off.
11:06 pm
>> president trump taking major steps to strip down obama era regulations to combat climate change. signing an executive order that undoes the clean power plant. >> loosens fuel economy standards for cars and trucks. >> approve the keystone xl pipe-line. >> his order would allow coal mining on federal lands, permit the oil industries to release more methane. >> the epa removed most of the information on climate change from its website explaining on a pretion release it's being updated to reflect the approach of new leadership. >> trevor: what does that mean, the epa's website is going to reflect the approach of the new leadership. what does that mean? it is now just going to he redirect to and by the way, that is not clean coal, that is not clean coal at all. look at that. yeah. oh, yeah, that's right. i'm going to hit it so hard it's going to turn into a diamond. yeah. that's right. you know what's funny, is just
11:07 pm
rocks and your minds are taking it there. at this point convincing trump seems if you tile. he doesn't care about wildlife. he doesn't care about famine and draught all over the w0r8d. he disunt care if it gets warmer. that just means he gets tanner. there is one thing though, that might, just mate get trump to care about the climate change. and it is his children. right? no, no, i mean the ones he raised. donald trump's property is in danger. >> donald trump's property is a luxury mansion mar-a-lago. he calls it the winter white house but it's also a climate change ground zero. >> over the coming decades rising sea waters could inundate a quarter of his very own luxury estate. >> trevor: wow. president trump, if by some miracle you see this clip, i just want to say this. you may not care about climate change. but i know you care about
11:08 pm
winning. which is why you are not going to let climate change kick your ass by flooding your winter wonderland. come on, president trump, time for you to stand up and tell the world, nobody sinks your property but you. (applause) nobody. after the break, we continue this discussion with environmentalist carl pope and former new york city mayor michael bloomberg. we'll be right back.

11:11 pm
>> trevor: welcome back to the daily show. my first guest tonights are the authors of climates of hope, how city businesses and citizens can save the planet. please welcome former new york city mayor michael bloomberg and carl pope. (applause) welcome to the show, gentlemen. before we get floo t i'm just going to let you know, i have a swear jar here at the show. and basically if anyone swears, they have to put a billion dollars into the jar. can i. >> can i venmo it. >> trevor: anything works, by the way trump is also a cause word, ah [bleep], i will pay mine later but will you pay yours nowment welcome to the
11:12 pm
show. let's get straight into it and talk about the book, climate of hope. the book and the title seem to go against everything that americans and many people in the world are feeling right now. you wrote a book about climate change. and yet the president says that climate hang change is a hoax. so somebody doesn't know what's going on. >> well, let me start by saying the world is a lot better than people think. in the last two decades we cut world poverty in half. and in the last two or three years we've cut greenhouse gases dramically in the united states, so much so we're two thirds of the way already towards the goals that he wants to walk away from. >> trevor: so if the president is trying to walk away from these goals, but you are saying that the goals already are going to be achieved. >> yes. >> trevor: does america believe the president to be prothese goals. >> no, no, as carl can tell you. the federal government does next to nothing. the state governments do very little. city governments and corporations and individuals are the ones that are closing
11:13 pm
coal-fired power plants, changing to more efficient use of energy, getting people to behave in ways that will have a better future for the environment and long-term for our climate. >> the pathetic thing about proposing to walk away from paris is it is a treaty that was negotiated to be really good for the united states. and we're going to do our part whatever the president says. >> trevor: good in what way? >> because what it said was the united states will do some things that are good for our economy, make us healthier, that make us safer. and that are relatively easy. and other countries will do things that are much harder. but that are good for us. so it was a great deal for the united states. and now the president wants to walk away from it? we're going to do our part anyway. let me be very clear, right now there is a coal mining museum in kentucky. they just announced last month that they are changing their
11:14 pm
electricity supply from coal to solar because they want to save money. like most of us. >> trevor: so the coal people are quitting coal. >> because solar is cheaper. >> trevor: but donald trump says everyone else must do the coal. >> even though it is more expensive. >> trevor: and he is changing a deal that's good. >> it's almost as if. >> he says a lot of things that he then says something different the income time. >> no! >> i know it's shocking. but in the end, the only thing that matters is what gets done. >> trevor: right. now let's go back to what you were saying about carl am because the thing that brought you together is that you work for the sierra club, you are the head of the sierra club. >> i was. >> trevor: you were at the time. for those that don't know, what you were doing was basically trying to shut down coal plants and turn them into green energy institutions. what does that mean, though? >> okay, you can generate electricity in lots of ways. some of them like burning coal
11:15 pm
is very filty. some of them like putting up a wind turbine are very clean. it used to be that coal was cheaper, 30 years ago. that is a very great 20th century strat he gee. but now wind and solar are much cheaper than coal. and so sensible businesses, sensible public utilities are busy replacing old, dirty things with new clean things. that's going to be the story of the 21s century. we are not 30 years from now going to be using the technology we use today. >> trevor: what happens to the people, though, that are in those jobs. because everyone says it's not about the coal, it's about the coal miners. >> if you go back to 1927 there were 800,000 coal miners, now there are 60,000. and it is not because of people using less coal, the production has gone up. it is because of technology. and what we have got to do is number one, stop using coal, but number two, find ways to retrain and create jobs for the people that get hurt. and in fact there are three organizations that bloomberg fill an thoppees is supporting to help go and do that.
11:16 pm
but you don't keep doing something that is bad for everybody to created some jobs for a number of people. you find another ways to get them jobs. the same thing is true, for example, with veterans. a lot of veterans are out of work. nobody suggests we should go start a war to give them a job. >> trevor: well, sm people do. >> well. >> and he to give you the concrete right now, the renewable energy industry is relatively young. it already employs five times as many americans as coal, gas and oil combined. we're already employing five times as many people making clean energy as we employ making dirty energy. but what we are talking about is how do we save the dirty energy jobs. in 1924 we didn't say oh, we're going to lose harness makers because of the model t. we didn't make america great by protecting harness makers. we made america great by launching the automotive revolution. like the clean energy revolution. >> trevor: how do you convince the voters of this though. because as much as we can say
11:17 pm
donald trump wants to save coal, coal miners have said to donald trump we want to you save coal. >> they've convinced donald trump who hopefully somebody will convince him to change his mind. but the truth of the matter is we have closed over 250, half of all the coal-fired power plants in this country, not because of federal regulation, but because the public has called their local company and said i don't want you to keep po lawsuiting the air. my kids are breathing that air, i'm drinking the water that is being po lawsuited. the public really is driving all of this. so just to wrap it up, i mean it is quite a stance to take in saying, america is already going to do it, with or without donald trump. >> yes, there's a lot of problems in the world, but a lot of them have solutions. and what this book basically, which is carl's idea says if you break it down into small, individual things, we can attack each one of those and we can make progress and we are doing that and that's where the word
11:18 pm
hope comes from. >> whatever, wherever you live and whatever you do, you have an opportunity to be part of a solution that will make you better off. we're not talking about sacrifice. we're not talking about sending you a bill, we're talking about writing a check. >> trevor: thank you so much for being on the show. i appreciate it. thank you very much. climate of hope is available now. for more information, check out climate of michael bloomberg and carl pope, everybody. plaws plawls to create starbucks doubleshot espresso... we put our energy into giving it the bold, rich taste of real starbucks espresso with a hint of cream. so you can put your energy, where it really counts. starbucks doubleshot espresso. real life energy.

11:25 pm
so we had to wear like, you know, jeans and boots and sweaters and so it was-- that was challenging. but you know, it is still the same, pretty much. >> trevor: it is a show that does feel like a movie. the story is so engaging and the topic is not an easy one to deal with. >> no. >> trevor: because for those who haven't seen it, shots fired is a show where a black police officer, it starts off where a black police officer shoots a white teenager. and obviously that already flips the script that america is having on its head. when you saw the story, i mean, you knew that this type of thing would be edgy. why accept it? why get into it? >> wow, first of all t was created by gina spicewood and her husband, gina wrote and directed loving basketball 17 years ago, which i can't believe it was 17 years ago, because it's like-- you know, i'm not that old. so i-- she's a good friend of

11:27 pm
month issue shoot so we finished shooting last july, and last july there was a record number of police shootings in the country. and there was one day that we all came to set. it was the day after castillo had gotten shot. he was the one with the baby in the back and the girlfriend. and we couldn't start the day. we were so emotional. rehad to stake a moment of silence and kind of just breathe, because it was like too close for krt. >> trevor: right. >> art imitating life imimdate-- imitating art t was crazy. we just reminded ourselves what a privilege and an honor it is to work on this subject matter. because it is very timely and clearly you know t is still happening. jordan edwards, 15 years old, you know, same thing is happening. and its' time, it's time for us to make some changes in our criminal justice system and you
