Fox News Has a Hard Time Processing the Las Vegas Shooting: The Daily Show

Fox News Has a Hard Time Processing the Las Vegas Shooting: The Daily Show


Let’s move on the story
that everyone in America
has been dealing with–
the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Today we learned more details
about the shooter.
He was a 64-year-old man
from Florida
with no criminal record,
and he owned 42 guns.
Oh, and also, apparently,
he was a multimillionaire.
Which means right now
he doesn’t fit any profile
of any mass shooter.
And you know
who’s having a hard time
processing
all of that information?
The good people at Fox News.
Here’s the other thing.
Bin Laden, we knew who to hate.
You know, you saw Sandy Hook,
-we knew that mutant living
in his basement. -Yeah.
We don’t even know enough
about him to hate him yet.
That is… that is so true.
How do you hate someone
who’s killed 59 people? Uh…
Because he’s not Muslim.
I mean, he wasn’t known
to be mentally ill.
He doesn’t kneel for the anthem.
He’s just a rich white guy
who shot people
at a country music concert.
Like, how do you hate him?
There’s nothing to hate.
I bet someone at Fox News
right now
is trying to hack into 23andMe,
just like, “Come on,
“there’s got to be
something about him,
“something about him,
he’s got to have some…
“Ah, two percent Inuit?
I’ll take it, I’ll take it.
I guess it’s kind of a burka.
I’ll take it.”
Since Sunday’s shooting
didn’t fit
any of Fox’s
established narratives,
they couldn’t politicize it.
Right? And if they
couldn’t politicize it,
then I guess
neither should anyone else.
Can we not have a day
in which we mourn
before we engage in some very
divisive debate
over an issue on which there’s
been no agreement
in this country
for a very long time?
You truly hope that
in a moment like this
we can move beyond politics.
Do you need to politicize
this today?
Can you just stand-down
for a moment?
I like how FOX News says
“please don’t
politicize this today,”
as if there’s any time
they’d be willing
to talk about gun control.
‘Cause, I mean, I’m-I’m happy
to wait a couple of days,
but you know they’d be like,
“Oh, sorry.
We can’t do Thursday.
Yeah, we’re gonna be talking
about Hillary’s e-mails.”
Be like, “Oh, what about,
what about Friday?”
“No, still talking about
Hillary’s e-mails.”
“Next month, next year?”
“Yeah, we’re gonna be swamped
with the e-mails for a while.
Yeah.”
But I get the concern.
I mean, what kind
of terrible people
would push a political agenda
the day after a mass shooting?
A shooting like with Orlando.
In the wake of this attack, you
wonder whether people like that
should be, you know,
should be coming here.
Everyone in the
Muslim community,
let’s be part of the solution
and work together as Americans
to combat radical
Islamic terrorism.
It would be to the president’s
best interest
to rally around the country
to name an enemy
and a movement to stop.
Anybody who’s coming
from overseas,
especially from the Middle East,
we need to vet them out.
Okay. That-that last guy’s
just weird.
No. It’s almost like he just
doesn’t want to see his family.
(with Middle Eastern accent):
“We need to vet
“all of the people
from the Middle East,
“especially my brother Hamid,
“who’s always trying
to come here
“and borrow money from me,
“and we need to vet
my Aunt Fatima,
“who’s always trying
to set me up.
“I’m not getting married,
Fatima.
“Hashtag #SingleToMingle, okay?
“Okay? Block all of them.
“Block all of them!
All of them.”
(cheering and applause)
(normal voice):
So clearly, FOX’s whole,
“don’t politicize it” is BS.
Or maybe just a way to buy time
while they’re figuring out
how to politicize it.
Right now, friends helped
friends to safety,
people helped strangers
to safety,
and law enforcement was running
towards the bullet,
so all those kneelers
in the NFL out there,
they need to recognize
when they’re kneeling during
the anthem, they’re kneeling,
and we’re supposed to be
honoring law enforcement,
law enforcement that’s trying
to save lives, not take lives.
Wow. Wow.
Did this guy just find a way
to use the mass shooting
to pivot back to
the NFL argument?
Yeah, like, after watching this,
you’d be thinking,
“Hundreds of people shot
in Las Vegas.
Colin Kaepernick,
you son of a bitch!”
But-but I hear,
what is his point?
You’ve got to show respect
to the police.
Personally, I’d rather respect
the police
by reducing the number of guns
that risk killing police.
But, yeah. I mean,
not kneeling is good, too.
You do your thing do.
Do whatever you want.
(applause)
Like…
The people on FOX News are so
desperate to find a narrative
to grasp on to, that at times,
even they couldn’t get on board
with their own ideas.
His brother said he didn’t
believe in God,
or didn’t have a God, or didn’t
have faith in his life,
so maybe, this is all
speculation,
but that possibly could be
the reason.
Because he knows country
musicians or country music fans
are normally pro-God
and go to church on Sundays.
Maybe he has
a problem with that,
or had a problem with that.
-Okay. You all want to
weigh-in on that. -All right.
-Yeah. No. I didn’t know if…
-All right, stay silent.
-I didn’t know if Steve–
-Let us know what you think.
-Send us your e-mails.
-Well– Yeah.
(laughter)
Dear FOX News, that (bleep)
was hilarious.
E-mail sent.
(applause)
Yesterday, everyone on FOX News
was flailing
like Mariah Carey
on New Year’s Eve.
Everyone– Well, everyone
except for one man:
SpongeBob Squarehead.
Imagine if the president today
brought up
the Second Amendment–
how would the news media
in this country have reacted?
There were a lot of people
that raced immediately to,
“Let’s talk about guns.”
I’ve always been a believer
that you-you got to prepare
to defend yourself.
And-and I had gun permits
in New York and Rhode Island
and California and-and…
and Alabama and Georgia
in my life,
and I-I was trained in the use
of a firearm by my parents,
that had connections
to law enforcement.
What does that mean?
“I was trained in the use
“of a firearm by my parents,
that had connections
to law enforcement”?
The world doesn’t
work like that.
Like, if someone’s sick
on the plane, no one screams,
“Does anyone have a cousin who
watched Grey’s Anatomy? Anyone?”
But according to Sean Hannity,
what really stops
a bad guy with a gun
is a Sean Hannity with a gun.
This guy’s got a machine gun.
Okay, how are they gonna
take him on without a weapon?
Or if it’s happening
within a crowd–
if you’re in San Bernardino,
do you want Sean Hannity,
who’s trained in the safety
and use of a firearm
in that room,
so when they drop the clip
and they start to reload, you
got a shot, you got a chance?
Okay, Sean, you answered
your own question.
The shooter was 400 yards away
in a hotel room 32 floors up.
But you’re, like, “Yeah,
but if he was down on the ground
“and close to me
and was out of bullets,
then I might have a chance
to shoot him down.”
That’s like saying,
“If Tyra Banks had no money
“and I had all the money
“and she was,
like, really hungry,
I might have a chance.”
It’s not reality.
Hannity’s fantasy
was so ridiculous
that even his Fox colleague
couldn’t get on board.
Do you want Sean Hannity,
who’s trained
in the safety and use
of a firearm in that room,
so when they drop the clip
and they start to reload
you got a shot,
you got a chance?
Yeah, wouldn’t have done
much good with a bandoli…
It’s 32nd, uh, floor, unless
you had a high-powered rifle
to take him out, but uh,
but your point is well taken.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Sean, you-you
made absolutely no sense,
but your point is well taken.
Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
You know she’s thinking,
“Dude, you couldn’t even
“protect women from being
sexually harassed
“in your own building,
and now you’re Batman?
“Calm down.
Calm down, man.
“Calm down. Calm down.
Calm down.”
I’m… Like, I’m not gonna lie–
he may seem crazy,
but after watching that,
I wish Sean Hannity would
start his own security service.
-♪ ♪ -ANNOUNCER:
In a dangerous world,
if you need protection,
then you need…
Sean Hannity’s
Private Security Services!
Sean Hannity
is trained in kicking ass,
throwing footballs indoors,
and wearing his hat backwards.
So when the crap hits the fan,
Hannity’s your man.
Do you want Sean Hannity,
who’s trained
in the safety and use
of firearm in that room,
so when they drop the clip
and they start to reload,
you got a shot,
you got a chance?
If you’re threatened by a
shooter who is in the room
and has run out of bullets,
then you’ve got a chance!
Sean Hannity’s
Private Security Services–
total protection
in very specific circumstances.

  1. When the Second Amendment was written there was not the same weapons as today. Maybe the politicians could make a deal. Ban assault weapon,but allow folks to armed themselves (pistol,knives fist…).

  2. Republicans are a special kind of stupid. Think building a wall is gonna stop illegal immigration 😂😂 what’s next?

  3. What's wrong with America? Fox News, Sean Piss Handity, and those other clowns including the cum Trumpster.

  4. It's not like we are burning fossil fuels on venus

    No there is no connection to burning fossil fuels and volcanoes. The reason is mining

    But you mine to get the fossil fuels so it's an indirect ans

    You pee because you drink water not because you filter sea water for drinking

  5. I think there are situations where u shouldn't politicize stuff because it would be the wrong thing to do. Lets take the christchuch shooting. New Zealand has the strictest of guncontrol it still happend though. It shouldn't be the topic of discussion it should be the islamophobia or great social divide.

  6. “Total protection under very specific circumstances!”
    Now I’m going to think this every time some ultra aggressive gun bro starts bragging about how efficiently he would neutralize an intruder if that ever happened

  7. It always amazes me how Trevor who manages to turn every into a joke sometimes gets dead serious because he himself can’t cope with the level of ridiculousness

  8. Yes Fox News attack atheists. These people are so prejudice to anyone that is not white and Christian. It’s ridiculous

  9. There's a mass shooting yesterday, Americans never learn, gun control is impossible, that will keep each other every single day, cool!

  10. It's funny seeing the hypocrisy when violence comes from the far right or when zionists shit on human rights it's nothing.

  11. I can't be dishonest with myself, I have to agree, what FOX is doing there is some major narrative twisting & propaganda, it's what all of the MSM does! But in keeping with having to be real with myself, the left has twisted the news & the narrative SO BAD, that they have literally become the creators & keepers of the paradigm, the vicious brown shirts that they loath so much!!! this is why the Constitutionalists are standing in their place & this is why we stand behind a President, who has kept his word, been viciously attacked by the leftist from within the Hollywood, the NFL & the media! In fact the attacks has become so wide spread, baseless & pety that it's ridiculously obvious! There is a real war raging behind the scenes & I believe the last thing President Trump wants to see is a civil war break out in this country, he knows it will divide us & we'll, in the end, be conquered!! Deconstructing this narrative(s) with the truth/facts, is a or the way to know who are enemies are!!!

  12. U.S. is one of the worst countries to live in for immigrants I have no idea why people come here to waste their 1 life. You’ll never fit in and you’ll never be good enough. You just a body paying taxes and working for less than a liveable wage. All that just to frustrate the locals while the same people point to those immigrants they brought in for all their hard times. Of course U.S. has been a hub for the most brilliant minds around the world which is what kept this country floating and innovating. 100% of “U.S. innovations” are by foreign students and Doctoral candidates and researchers.

  13. Fox news has a clear anti Muslim and anti minority agenda, its transparent and obvious. However God is greater and watches over his creation and protects innocent people just like HE saved HIS people from Pharaoh. Today the Pharaoh is Trump and his minions are Fox news.

  14. Notice the fake news media always give white shooters benefit of doubt, they always have PTSD or mental issues but a guy with a Muslim sounding name is automatically a terrorist. This is not by accident.

  15. I would want Sean hannity in that room with an active shooter. I would use that belligerent, corrupt piece of shit as a human shield

  16. You just know that Fox News sent out an internal memo reminding people to: 1. Downplay guns 2. "now is not the time!…" 3. Yada yada yada Hilary's emails

  17. Why are most of the Americans so dumb.. I mean it's no lie… The talks are hilarious and nonsense… People in the east would never talk these kinds of bs.. Lol… The Americans need to think 300 times before saying something… Americans and the whites are intelligent and smart.. But not wise… We need wise people in this world in order to live happily and peacefully and not double standard garbage people..
    P. S.. I didn't mean all the Americans are dumb but most of them….
    Have a great day..

  18. 7:14…no one wants Sean Hannity, or as I like to call him Spongebrain Squarehead.
    Not even his mother.

  19. #republicanFASCISM #CREATEDbyTRUMP CRIMINALS unleashed; FROM FLORIDA!
    #MURDERERS why did he not shoot up #FLORIDA, his state of training and attitude.

  20. A man kills 50-plus people and injured hundreds and Fox News pulls up the God card unbelievable unbelievable

  21. Hey Trevor…love your show…amazing content. Just one suggestion though…if your could add date to the title…will help relate facts better.. specifically for Non-US ppl like me…🙂

  22. On that day, I flew out from Vegas before the shooting, and by the time I'd landed, 100 people had been shot. I had no idea until I landed that something so horrible happened miles from where I'd taken off.

  23. By the way "Sean Hannity gun expert" … The correct terminology would be
    "when they drop the magazine"
    You see a magazine is a spring assisted device that holds and feeds ammo to a fire arm. A "clip" is a device, normally a piece of stamped steel, that holds the rounds and is then fed into the magazine of the the fire arm… (Look up block clip and stripper clip)

    Brought to you by a liberal NJ snowflake in favor of more gun control to the point of possibly revamping the 2nd amendment.

  24. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

    -Benjamin Franklin

  25. Fox News is like that cow in the field it just keeps eating and shiting and eaten it shouldn't and eaten and shouldn't when does the bull s*** end

  26. The guy was not happy; angry at something/someone. Basically.

    Money, women, success didn’t “fill the hole” in his life.

    Most people would be content with one of those things in their lifetime.

    If people are unwilling to understand this guys mind,
    at least have regulations on “tools” that mind end another.

    Misery loves company, but this is taking it to a whole other level.

  27. We have no reason to hate him….except that he killed a bunch or innocent people but you know no biggie right

  28. But they hated Mike Brown for doing nothing accept walk down the street 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️this is amazing tho !!!!’

  29. This this chick said country music fans are Pro God and go to church on Sundays 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂!!!!🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️my goodness

  30. Daily news is a joke. I guess whoever doesn’t agree with their liberal views is wrong? Idiots you guys are f’n whack, you just lost a few more viewers! Haaaaaa! Lmfao where you guys at on the ratings now????? Lmao suckers y’all are killing y’all selves you dummies!! Keep up the great work and you’ll be booted in no time! Lmfao 😅😂🤣

  31. I went to this taping and they do ediths alot. If he says a joke but they dont like the level of laughter they redo it and tell us to laugh louder.

  32. I was at a training conference on the day of the shooting. One of my colleagues, with whom I normally get along, disgusted me. "Sheesh, if it was just a good guy with a gun, they would have stopped all this." Shakes head, hangs head.

  33. Hannity: “I am trained in the use of firearms!” Also Hannity: calls the magazine a “clip” like a kid playing fortnite. 😑

  34. Oh dont mind me… I'm just patiently waiting for America to implode, burn and fall to the ground. Hurry up already china, russia tf ya'll waiting for…

  35. Mayb there's time when fox news host got shot in their ass n their will still holding that bleeding ass continue to pro gun on tv… That's particular moment would b fun to watch

  36. Sean Hannity’s word choice just killed me XD “Machine Gun” “Clip”

    Jesus christ, dude can’t even say the right words

  37. What is your trigger? The shooter was a millionaire. He was not mentally unstable, he was a millionaire. He planed to shoot a multitude of people.  He killed himself, so we do not know why?

  38. Just cause you own a gun doesn't mean you're skilled at using it. It's like saying every douchebag supercar owner can drive like Michael Schumacher.

  39. I want somebody in the room that doesnt glorify Hollywood. It's a magazine, not a clip Hannity. Only the "thugs" you talk about call it a clip.

  40. Fuck the police fuck EMT fuck the firefighters fuck the military I'm sick of these bitches wine and all the time we as citizens do our jobs to you are no better than we are if you choose to be licensed murderer that is on you

  41. Shawn Hannity is a bitch he would only shoot some one while reloading all the fun is shooting at some one who shoots back no better then the mass shooters urself Shawn Hannity

  42. Love ya Trevor, but this time I have to disagree.  Don''t put on hate for mentally ill people.  Profiles are meaningless when they deliberately shoot up a bunch of people.  Mental illness is the cause of those deaths, not the gun.

  43. Instead of news reporters and shitty comedians talking about each others reactions to an idiot killing people, how about we ahem shoot back.

  44. I thought the flag was to represent our freedom and unity. I didn't know it belonged to a single group like law enforcement.
