Does Opting Out Of Intelligence Briefings Violate A Norm Or A Law?


ALSO NEXT WEEKS, WE MIGHT TELL
SOME JOKES ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. BUT WE’LL SEE. WE’RE LEARNING SO MUCH ABOUT
DONALD TRUMP AND HERE’S THE BEST THING, WE’RE LEARNING THINGS
FROM CRUMP DONALD TRUMP. HE’S TEACHING US. FOR INSTANCE, HE’S TEACHING US
THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS PRESIDENTS DO THAT WE ALL
ASSUMED ARE LAWS BUT ARE ACTUALLY JUST NORMS WE GOT USED
TO FROM PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS, LIKE THE ONE WHERE YOU WIN BY
GETTING THE MOST VOTES. NOT A LAW. I’M GOING TO EXPLAIN THE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NORM AND A LAW IN OUR NEW SEGMENT, “NORM OR
LAW?” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OKAY, HERE’S THE DEAL. HERE’S HOW IT WORKS. IT’S NOTOO COMPLICATED. IF I DESCRIBE SOMETHING THAT’S
A NORM, LIKE HOLDING THE DOOR FOR SOMEONE AT STARBUCKS, YOU’LL
HEAR THIS:>>”NORM!”
>>Stephen: IF INSTEAD I DESCRIBE SOMETHING THAT IS A
LAW, LIKE NOT HOLDING SOMEONE HOSTAGE IN STARBUCKS, YOU’LL
HEAR THIS: ( “LAW&ORDER” THEME )
>>Stephen: FIRST UP, UNLIKE EVERY OTHER CANDIDATE FOR THE
PAST 40 YEARS, DONALD TRUMP REFUSED TO RELEASE HIS TAX
RETURNS, AND WE NEED TO SEE A PRESIDENT’S TAX RETURNS TO KNOW
IF HE’S A CROOK. FUN FACT, THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO
RELEASE HIS TAXES SAID THIS:>>I AM NOT A CROOK.>>Stephen: FUN FACT: CROOK. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT IS A CANDIDATE RELEASING HIS TAX RETURNAISE NORM OR A LAW?>>NORM!>>Stephen: YES, IT’S JUST A
NORM. AND HERE’S THE CRAZY PART:
WHILE THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T HAVE TO RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS,
CABINET AND SUBCABINET-LEVEL POSITIONS ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT
THEIR TAX RETURNS TO THE SENATE. SO, LOWER LEVEL POSITIONS ARE
HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN THE PRESIDENT. THAT’S LIKE WALKING INTO A
RESTAURANT BATHROOM, AND THE SIGN SAYS, “ALL EMPLOYEES MUST
WASH HANDS, EXCEPT THE CHEF.” ( LAUGHTER )
DISTURBING. DISTURBING.( APPLAUSE )
NEXT UP ON “NORM OR LAW?,” TRUMP
IS THE RICHEST MAN EVER TO BE
PRESIDENT, WHICH IS QUITE AN ACHIEVEMENT CONSIDERING SEVERAL
OF THE FIRST ONES HAD “UNPAID FARMING INTERNS.” THAT’S TRUE. I DIDN’T MAKE THAT UP. SO WILL TRUMP USE THE PRESIDENCY
TO HELP HIS BUSINESS? PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS SOLD OFF
THEIR INVESTMENTS OR PUT THEM IN SOMETHING CALLED A BLIND TRUST,
WHICH I BELIEVE IS ALSO THE SLOGAN ON TRUMP’S NEW HAT. SO, TRUMP’S GOING TO DO THE SAME
BECAUSE THAT’S THE LAW, RIGHT?>>NORM!>>Stephen: NOPE, IT’S JUST A
NORM. TURNS OUT, “THE STRICT FEDERAL
RULES ABOUT FINANCIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST DO NOT APPLY TO THE
PRESIDENT, WHOSE INCENTIVE TO AVOID SELF-ENRICHMENT IS SIMPLY
ASSUMED.” YES, IT’S ASSUMED. AND WHEN YOU ASSUME ABOUT TRUMP,
IT MAKES AN ASS OUT OF YOU AND ME
( APPLAUSE ) AND, AND, I THINK WE KNOW WHO’S
GRABBING THAT ASS. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT TRUMP’S COMPANIES ARE ALL OVER THE WORLD. IS THERE ANY LAW STOPPING
FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS FROM THROWING BUSINESS HIS WAY TO GET
SPECIAL TREATMENT, OR IS IT JUST A NORM? ( “LAW&ORDER “THEME.>>Stephen: OH, THANK GOD. AND THIS ONE’S IN THE
CONSTITUTION. THEM’S THE BIG LAWS. IT’S CALLED THE EMOLUMENTS
CLAUSE, WHICH IS A FANCY WORD FOR “BRIBE.” THE FOUNDERS KNEW THAT EVEN
HONEST PEOPLE MIGHT BETRAY THEIR VALUES FOR CASH. IT’S HUMAN NATURE. JUST LIKE IT’S HUMAN NATURE TO
ENJOY THE GREAT TASTE OF ACTIVIA YOGURT. MMM-MMM-MMM. ACTIVIA. BE RIGHT BACK. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) SO WHAT ABOUT DAILY INTELLIGENCE
BRIEFINGS? IT’S CRUCIAL FOR THE COMMANDER
IN CHIEF TO BE CONSTANTLY UPDATED ON THREATS AROUND THE
WORLD, BUT SO FAR, TRUMP HAS BEEN OPTING OUT OF THEM. THAT’S RIGHT, HE’S JUST “OPTING
OUT.” DONALD TRUMP IS TREATING OUR
NATIONAL SECURITY LIKE I TREAT EMAILS FROM POTTERY BARN. “STOP NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION? UNSUBSCRIBE!”
( LAUGHTER ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THAT YOGURT IS REALLY GOOD. ( LAUGHTER )
SO IS REFUSING TO BE INFORMED VIOLATING A NORM OR LAW?>>NORM!>>Stephen: YEP. BUT DON’T WORRY. ACCORDING TO TRUMP ADVISOR
KELLYANNE CONWAY, INSTEAD OF BRIEFINGS FROM THE C.I.A., TRUMP
GETS HIS INFORMATION FROM “A NUMBER OF SOURCES” INCLUDING
“HIS PERSONAL AND ON-THE-PHONE MEETINGS WITH OVER WHAT’S NOW 41
WORLD LEADERS.” FIRST OF ALL, KELLYANNE, NO ONE
SAYS “OVER FRUN.” YOU CAN SAY “OVER 40” OR “ALMOST
50,” BUT WHEN YOU SAY “OVER 41,” WE ALL KNOW YOU’RE TRYING TO
MAKE 42 SOUND BIGGER. ( LAUGHTER )
AND THERE’S A REASON PRESIDENTS DON’T GET NEWS ABOUT OTHER
COUNTRIES FROM THOSE COUNTRIES’ LEADERS. FOREIGN LEADERS LIE. LIKE FIDEL CASTRO, WHO, UNTIL
LAST WEEK, WOULD NOT ADMIT THAT HE WAS DEAD. WELL, THAT’S IT FOR THIS EDITION
OF “NORM OR LAW,” BUT I HAVE A FEELING WE’LL LEARN A LOT MORE
ABOUT WHAT’S TECHNICALLY LEGAL OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS– FOR
INSTANCE, WHETHER WE KEEP THE NORM THAT AMERICA HAS LAWS.

Straight Talk: Dealing with the Mother-In-Law || STEVE HARVEY


– What’s the best way to
deal with an unpleasant mother-in-law? – When it comes to the mother-in-law, we don’t need to get involved. Lean back and let your
man be the man and say, “Hey Mom, you wanna see
me and the grandchildren, “mind your own business,
stop giving orders, “stop taking control of the house.” A lot of these men, they’re afraid to say, your wife is your number one priority. Tell your mother to step back
(clapping) in a respectful way! – Go ahead. – The last thing you need to
do is have the man, Siggy, say anything to his mother. – [Siggy] You gonna do it? – Men can’t handle it, a fight with you, much less his mother and you! No, no, no. Take the high road. Love her into a relationship. I’m telling you, I have
seen it and seen it. Don’t step in between a man and his Mama. Just let her run it, take the high road. Kill her with kindness.
– Wait a second. – Kill her with kindness.
(clapping) – But what if you can’t? – Then pray to God that He intervene. And that He comes– – So if you’ve tried and
you tried and you try and you can’t–
– It’ll work. – Prayer doesn’t work. You need to have the man
– Prayer works, honey. step up and be the man.
– Prayer works. – OK, why can’t you do it together? – Now, she didn’t mean it like that. She meant prayer don’t work in all situations.
– Prayer don’t work with mother-in-laws. – There’s black people,
“Prayer works for everything!” (laughing)
(clapping) No, she meant in that
situation where you got a overbearing in-law. I gotta protect her ’cause I– When my hood rolls up, “Prayer work for everything!” (laughing)
(clapping) This ain’t even on the subject no more. (laughing) All right, Rachel? – I feel like, let me
try to find something in common with her. – Yes, work for the relationship. – To move forward,
which is her son, right? She loves her son, so
like, lead with that first. That’s what I was trying to say. – I’m just saying, if I left it to Travis, (clapping) if I left it, Steve, if I
left it to Travis to fix anything with any woman about anything, he’d be like, “Uh.” He don’t know. – Yeah. – So I got to put that
olive branch out there. I got to love her into a relationship. – Because let me say this. Men who love their mother
and most real men do. – [Kim] They do. – Most men who have a
problem with they mother, you should probably leave them because if you–
(clapping) any man that has a problem
with the first woman he ever loved, which is his mama, and done broke up with her, you next. So, just understand that. But here’s the deal. Most men hold their mother
in a certain reverence. It’s hard to knock that down. Go over there and tell her, hey man, my mother passed when I was 40. To that day, I was her boy.
– Baby. – I was her boy. “Boy, come in here.” I’m on TV. I got some money. – She don’t care. – If you get your man involved, he gon’ short circuit ’cause he can’t, it’s his mother. Now, he can, he should
say, as she suggested, “Mom, come on now. “Come on now, this is, give her a chance. “She’s really a sweet
woman, she’s great for me. “I love her. “I want you to give her a chance. “She good to me like
you’ve been good to me.” Ya know, and then just get on out the way. And then you gotta do
some of what Rachel said. You gotta find something in common. Hell, all y’all like to shop. – [Kim] That’s right. (clapping) OK, so we good with that one? – We gon’ pray about it. (laughing) – Prayer fix everything! (laughing) Hey ladies, thank you for
sharing your opinions today. We’ll be right back. (cheering)

Government Shutdowns Are Not Normal – Between the Scenes: The Daily Show


– As someone who comes
from another country, I don’t think you
understand how weird it is to have a government
that is always in threat of shutting down. Like, itself. Like, I’ve never come across
a pay as you go government. Every three months they’re
threatening to cut it off. You’re like, “What do you mean?” That’s not a normal idea. You understand how
strange that is? That’s not a normal, and people are just like, “Will Congress?” “Well, I don’t know
if Congress can.” “I don’t think Congress
is gonna do it.” “Ya know what, I don’t think
Congress can get it done.” And everyone excepts
that as normal, that Congress does not function. That’s not normal. Now, even when people go like, “Why would Donald Trump
send this to Congress? “He knows that Congress
can’t do this.” Well what do you mean? You shouldn’t accept that people in power
cannot do their job. There’s no other industry where we would allow
that to happen. There is no other industry where we would allow
that to happen. You know what I mean? We would never be like, “Oh, pilots don’t know
how to land planes.” “Yeah well, that’s
how it, that’s, ya know, that’s why we
jump out before they crash. “That’s what we do. “I guess that’s life.” It’s like, no, it’s not normal. We don’t accept it. And you can accept things when
you do them for long enough. You start to
believe it’s normal. I remember when I
was really young, when I was, maybe, 18. I had a car, it was a Beetle, the little Volkswagen Beetle. Volkswagen, right? (crowd laughs) And, my car had
windows that didn’t, the window winders
that were all broken. So, what I’d have to do
is do this, to close them and then do this, to close them. And I was just
like, “It’s normal.” I couldn’t afford to fix them. So, I was just like, “Yeah,
this is what I do, everyday.” And I thought it was normal, and my friends treat it normal, cause we did it for
like a year or two. And then, one day, I was
on a date with a woman and she got in the car,
and then we were driving and she’s like, “Oh,
I’m really cold. “Can you, can I? “Don’t know how to.” And then I stopped the
car, straight faced, got out, went to her
side, opened her door. And I was like. (laughter) And then, she looked at. You know when someone’s
looking at you? Just looking at. And you know, I’ve never
looked in somebody’s eyes and seen sex get erased. Like immediately. Like, while I was
doing this I was like, “Oh, this is, this is not. “Okay, Okay.” And I was like
this is not normal. I shouldn’t be living like this. You can’t accept
it from Congress. It’s not normal. (upbeat music)
