Trump Impeachment Update: Vindman’s Explosive Testimony | The Daily Show

Trump Impeachment Update: Vindman’s Explosive Testimony | The Daily Show


The latest person
to testify against Trump
is Colonel Alexander Vindman,
which means two things.
One– there is more
and more evidence
piling up against the president,
and two– Trump has finally met
a colonel he doesn’t like.
And you can see why Vindman’s
testimony is not good for Trump.
Not only did he sound the alarm
about what was happening
with Ukraine,
but the guy is a decorated Iraq
War veteran with a Purple Heart.
The only American
with more impressive résumés
is Aunt Becky’s daughter,
you know? Yeah.
No, ’cause she did all that and
was captain of the crew team.
She was killing it, yo.
So if you’re a Trump defender,
how are you going to argue
that this guy isn’t trustworthy?
Well, instead of focusing
on the more than two decades
he served America,
you can focus
on where he’s really from.
He, uh,
is from the Soviet Union.
He emigrated here, uh,
and has an affinity
toward the Ukrainian people.
Here we have a U.S.
national security official
who is advising Ukraine
while working
inside the White House,
apparently, against
the president’s interest.
Isn’t that kind of an
interesting angle on this story?
Uh, I find that astounding,
and, you know,
some people might call that
espionage.
No, your eyes
aren’t deceiving you.
The new angle on Fox is
that America can’t trust
this Purple Heart recipient
because he moved here
from Ukraine.
Now, mind you, uh,
he was three years old
-when he came to the U.S.
-(laughter)
So, he didn’t move here.
He was moved here
by his parents, right?
‘Cause now
they’re making it seem like
he was, like,
a double agent for Ukraine.
Like, what kind of baby spy
thriller were you guys watching?
Huh? This little toddler was
just out in these streets
wrecking shit?
Is that what you think?
-(applause, cheering)
-He’s, like, a three-year-old
little Russian spy?
You think his plan in Russia
and, like, all in Ukraine,
he was like, “I will join
U.S. military, earn trust,
“and then, when time is right,
I will make up story
about quid pro quo
for Mother Russia”?
“Excellent, Comrade Baby!
“And when your mission
is complete,
you can watch extra episode
of Peppa Pig.”
(laughter)
And it’s not just Fox.
It’s not just Fox
discrediting Colonel Vindman.
No. Sean Duffy, a former
Republican Congressman,
was on CNN questioning where
the colonel’s loyalties lie.
He is a former Ukrainian.
He wants to make sure
the taxpayer money goes
to military aid to the Ukraine.
-He is entitled to that
position. -I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
Why does it matter
where he was born?
I’m sorry, Congressman Duffy.
Why does it matter
-where he was born? -I’m going
to explain that to you.
‘Cause that came up
on Fox News.
He’s an active duty
military member,
uh, an American who was awarded
the Purple Heart.
He-he… But you know what?
I’m of… I’m of Irish descent.
Um, I still love the Irish.
Um, and he has an affinity
probably for his homeland.
Okay, I-I feel like that was
just an epic self-own.
Because in an effort
to undermine Colonel Vindman,
Sean Duffy over here
has just made it sound like
he would sell out America
to another country.
That’s what he basically did.
He’s like, “Oh, I-I…”
He’s like “Look,
I have an affinity for Ireland,
“and if you get one potato
in me,
there’s no telling
what I’ll do!”
To help us make sense
of this new twist
in the Ukraine impeachment saga,
we turn now to someone
who’s live at the White House–
our very own
Roy Wood, Jr., everybody.
(applause and cheering)
-Roy?
-What’s up, brother?
Vindman is
a decorated war hero.
-Mm-hmm.
-And yet Trump’s defenders
are not just challenging
his credibility,
but they’re questioning
his patriotism.
What does this all mean?
It means these people are right.
Dude is straight out
the Soviet Union.
Look, man, I have seen
all the James Bonds,
all the Jason Bourne movies
several times
in theaters by myself.
-Eastern Europe is full
of spies! -Yeah.
No, no, but Roy,
he-he was brought to America
when he was three.
So what, man? They can
activate you at any time.
(laughter)
I was programmed,
and didn’t even know it
until one day,
I went to Popeyes
and heard my activation phrase–
“Sorry, we’re out of spicy.”
Man, I blacked out
and woke up…
(laughter)
I woke up four hours later
covered in bruises
and buffalo sauce.
-It’s crazy. -Okay, look,
I-I don’t agree, but whatever.
-You don’t trust a guy
who was born in Ukraine. -Uh-uh.
But he’s just one
of many officials testifying
that Trump’s call was improper.
Like, uh, Bill Taylor.
He’s a Vietnam vet
and a career diplomat
who has served
over four administrations.
You’re gonna trust Bill Taylor?
Never trust anyone
with two first names.
(laughter)
I went to school with a dude
named “Bobby Keith,”
and he was shady as hell.
You know what he did?
-He bought drugs from me.
-Wait.
(laughter)
Wait. Wait. You sold drugs?
That’s not what
we’re talking about right now.
The point is,
can a two-first-name snitch
like Bill Taylor be trusted,
especially knowing he might
let me sell him drugs?
Okay. All right,
okay, okay, fine, fine.
-Well, but then,
what about John Bolton? -Mm.
Trump picked him to be
his national security advisor,
and even he thinks
this whole thing is shady.
John Bolton.
I got two words for that.
(scoffs)
Ha! (laughing)
Are you gonna trust a man
who won’t even let us see
his upper lip?
(laughter)
What’s he hiding under there?
Show us the lip, Bolton.
Do we even know
there’s a lip there?
If you can’t see the lip,
you must acquit.
Everybody know that.
-Everybody knows that.
-Okay, Okay, Roy, why…?
Why do you have a signed picture
of John Bolton?
Oh, I met him on the street.
He signed it for me.
He’s a sweet dude,
but I don’t trust his ass.
Okay, you know what?
Roy, like, we actually
don’t even need witnesses
when you think about it.
We have the transcript
of the Ukraine call itself.
I know what it says because
I’ve read it with my own eyes.
Your eyes?
I don’t trust your African eyes.
(laughter)
Your eyes are only good
for spotting two things–
apartheid and lying.
So, no, I’m not going
to trust your immigrant eyes
over the word
of President Donald Trump.
Okay, but Trump himself said
he wants dirt on Joe Biden.
You can’t trust Donald Trump!
Guy lies all the time!
Don’t you ever watch
The Daily Show?
Oh. Okay, so at least
you trust this show?
No, you can’t trust this show.
The host has two first names
and one of his correspondents
sold drugs.
(cheers and applause)
What do you mean?
(cheering and applause continue)
So we shouldn’t trust
Colonel Vindman
nor Bill Taylor, John Bolton,
Trump or ourselves.
If there’s no truth to anything
and all of this is pointless,
then why did you insist that we
fly you all the way to D.C.?
Oh, I come here ’cause this
is the only Popeyes
I’m not banned from.
Well, good luck. I hope
they’re not out of spicy.
Roy Wood, Jr., everybody.

  1. I wish someone would shove a fork , pick, and shovel in lauar's big mouth..My god she's such a dumb asswipe..Anyone know if amazon sells toilet paper with her face on it, so I can go to the bathroom go poop and wipe all over her face just like I do dough boy in chief….Better known as PAB. crissy tigen gave him a name that keeps on giving……love that 'Lady'

  2. Improper my ass. Bribery is what we are talking about. Republicunts only care about their own power, who the hell are these losers that support Tramp over America. Funny thing is they will blame everyone else when things go bad for America. The base is the problem. They are base.

  3. Republicans: we cant beat them with facts lets attack their character. Gotta love the shitty attempts to destroy an American war hero by the republicans who swear to the bible they love our military and the constitution. Such hypocrites. I hope people remember these clowns when is time to vote

  4. It is one thing to say stuff about people you don't like but, it is the most respectless thing you can do is calling him a spy. He spend 20 years on protecting the same persons they call him a spy.

    There are things you can do but, no one should do. Those things are saying the N word , Don't respect scientist and there academic title, You don't call a woman a slut or whore, You don't tell kids they are worthless or any action where a child feels not appreciated and the most important one you should never be disrespectfull for the people that would have given there lives for your freedom.the new law should be If you actually disrespect fallen soldiers you will need serve 10 years in the military yourself.

  5. Let's see, Pelosi has known ties to the communist party. Many democrats have ties with the communist party who are involved with this impeachment. So, that means that it's the communists that are trying to impeach Donald Trump. That should concern every American.

    https://www.beliefnet.com/…/socialists-in-congress-with-tie…

    https://www.wnd.com/…/sanders-1-of-69-democrat-socialists-…/

  6. So the Asian guy on fox news questioning this purple heart winner who served 20 years military. So he must be on the side of CHINA in this trade war. Now how does it feel. So unless you're native american you can't be trusted since we all are immigrants. Great my husband and son who are African and Native Americans will be thrilled that they are considered the most trustworthy among all other Americans. ROTFLMAO And I say this as someone who's family is one of the oldest families in America. RIDICULOUS AND SHAMEFUL TO QUESTION THIS MAN'S HONOR OR LOYALTY!!!

  7. People should check military aid to Pakistan, where a lot of corruption happened because of comission received by previous regimes that too in money rather than Ukraine.

  8. CNN in 2016: “97% sure Hillary R. Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States of America!”.
    CNN in 2019: “Hillary Clinton knows 100% sure how to beat Trump now!”.
    Have these CNN employees ever been outside their radical extremist left bubble?
    Stop betting on the ancient swampies. They are too corrupt. We don’t believe them anymore. Go and look for candidates with a credible record and a clear vision, like Trump has.

  9. "THE (SECRET) IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS"… This is a shameful and sad moment in American History… These closed door hearings on the gravest subject that can face our republic, are being held "Behind closed doors"?…

    And these "Impeachment hearings" are being spearheaded by the proven, disgraceful and dishonest liar, Adam Schiff, who has an all consuming hatred for the President of the United States…

    What a disgrace!…

    The American people (fair minded Republicans AND Democrats AND Independents), are watching this very closely.- Sadly the Democrats will pay a heavy price for this for the actions of their disgraceful 'leaders' and cohorts.

    – THIS is the way scoundrels 'depose', destroy and attempt to eliminate opponents in Third world (so called 'Socialist' countries, which, In reality become Dictatorships…

    i am an immigrant who came to the US from another 'Socialist -Democratic' country, where power was routinely abused in this manner… i NEVER thought i would ever see this unfolding in the US…..

    It is difficult for me to reconcile to this shameful charade by the Democrats the past 3 years happening right HERE in the USA for all the world to see!… It all began after the 2016 election.

    EVERY American, (INCLUDING the fair minded Democratic base),should be outraged that the representatives they sent to Congress are running this "Impeachment Inquiry" and charade to bring down a President 'they don't like… The leaders of the Democratic congress have turned into slimy dishonest thugs, operating in SECRET, behind closed doors in the basement of the Capitol building.

    It is shocking, but simple to understand:

    The Democrats HATE the results of the 2016 Election, they HATE Donald Trump and they HATE all the Americans who voted for him!…

    Tragically, their hatred for Trump eclipses their love for country… They oppose moving forward with any and ALL the critical legislation, waiting to be passed into law. – EVERYTHING IS STALLED and DELAYED BY THE DEMOCRATS!

    They show contempt for ALL the American people and our country's great progress in the past 3 years… The removal of Trump at any cost seems to be their ONLY priority….

  10. You never saw Salt?

    You don’t get to LTC by not having integrity and loyalty. I retired from the Army 13 years ago but am sure they still go by the Army Values as detailed down below. Just remember, when one is commissioned or enlisted, you raise your right hand and swear an oath to support and defend the President of the United States? Or maybe Congress. Right? Or the Supreme Court? Or the Republican or Democrat parties? Or maybe they are swearing to defend the Army? Perhaps.

    No! You swear an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States.

    Army values under the acronym Ldership

    LoyaltY
    Duty
    Respect
    Selfless service
    Honor
    Integrity
    Personal Courage.

    When seeing or hearing about some of this-they have no ideal what any of this means let alone adopt it for themselves.

  11. Not funny at all Biden is corrupt. So what if vindeman served his country. Fine. He’s not the president. He has no authority on policy. Trump is the authority of policy.

  12. He can solicit help from a foreign country to undermine the integrity of our democracy(democratic election) and it is okay to the republicans and his base. Truth and fact are blinded by politics. "No, No, I don't want to see it. I refuse to see it." This is what his base and the republicans are saying now. It is proof to the corruption that is destroying the country. There is nothing wrong that their Golden Boy can say or do.

  13. See tht medal above all the other's, the Musket on a Blue background? That is given only to a person who actually was in Combat or was shot at or shot his weapon against enemy fighters. He also got the Purple Heart and was wounded doing it.

  14. So… Funny how we can't trust Vindman, but we're supposed to trust a former First Lady from Slovenia, a former USSR satellite?! You gotta know that Trump and his lot realize their flaming hypocrisy, they just think they are too superior to face any consequences!

  15. So a sub-par comedian is now an expert on foreign affairs…wait, sorry. It's just another Trump-hater and as far as sounding stupid, Derek Fuller, you definitely take the cake.

  16. Let me get this straight, we have the transcript of the phone call, but we need
    Vindman to reinterpret it for us because we're too stupid to simply read the
    transcript. Just like when Adam Schiff recently read to Congress a fake
    version of Trump's conversation with the Ukrainian President.

  17. Support the troops, my ass. Republicans will turn on anyone and stoop to any level of hypocrisy. Fake Christian, fake patriot, fake Americans. There’s some real news.

  18. The saddest part of this segment, it that Roy Wood's attempt at comedy is so close to reality. This is really how Republicans are behaving. How do you exagerate, for comedic effect, behavior that is already so over the top? This has got to be difficult for these comedians. I kow its terrifying to me.

  19. So Trump's wife, is also a spy? She also dealt with Ukraine and Russia and has best interest in mind. She's even said it herself.

  20. Would you, Trevor Noah put your life against this guy's achievements? Per your own words we still know about him so little. We don't know his family members and the fact that in 1970s KGB didn't let many people to leave from Soviet Union to United States. Very much, most of those are still part or a current members of KGB(FSB) and part of them seats in the left in Congress. So, I wouldn't put anything valuable against the colonel "honest" words.

  21. A Ukrainian working for the DOD and he is supposedly a snitch. I suggest all of Congress get investigated, every single one of them. There has been probable cause for dacades!

  22. The only time Fox makes an issue about a white immigrant as a child from Russia or former soviet bloc country… uhhh… perhaps FOX needs to rethink Melania.. but then again, their boss loves Russia so much..

  23. Trump moved Melania's full grown parents from Slovenia……. They shouldn't be around the president then, using FOX's own logic… or absence of logic rather..

  24. I hope Trump gets Impeached ,I will be so Happy I am Going to San Francisco in Nancy District and Take a Shit on the Biggest House's Front Porch I can find  , and I will be so Liberating … Shitting with Dignity …. Thankyou Nancy Pelosi ….

  25. Did Sean Duffy serve in the military? We know The Donald has bone spurs for Vietnam so we know he shouldn’t be degrading a Purple Heart recipient.

  26. Vindman's face can not trusted, he is a liar, if not why he did give President Trump transcript for democrats or Adam Schiff ?

  27. I hope trump can build the rerard wall and put the alligators and snakes asap, I have 1000s of orders to send, btw, trump's wall alligators and snakes purses, boots, wallets and belts for sale

  28. @Sean Duffy. Ireland has no affinity for you. Go fuck yourself with a potato. You're not welcome here.
    – from an Irish person (and a number of her friends and family who have expressing the same feelings).

  29. Jesus Christ these fox people are just retards….
    They are the real traitors,a decorated military veteran of 20 years,while he was fighting for you morons he was a hero,now he can't be trusted….just comes to show how loyal americans are.

  30. The Democrats are controlled by racist AOC and the ISIS-loving Squad who want to destroy America from within. The Democrats seem to forget that all people who voted Trump are the hard working people, who pay for everything in America, including the Democrats’ communist hobbies…

  31. BOMBSHELL !!! Volodymyr Zelensky will probably come to Washington to personally testify in the House and clear definately ALL THOSE biased Official's Personal " Interpretations & UNDERSTANDINGS " of this * PHONY phone Call*. That will definitely trash ALL the DMS scam conspiracy. FAKE NEWS and Schifty Schiff will flip like a dog chasing his queue.

  32. Trump is an idiot and takes credit for shit that was already into play! The only thing that has changed since he became POTUS is the divide amongst the American ppl! What makes matters worse is everyone knows it yet they still support this bum!!!
