a >> announcer: coming to you from new york city, the only city in america, it's "the daily show." tonight: trump pleads the fifth. jordan klepper fingers milwaukee. and akin omotoso. this is "the daily show," with trevor noah. ( cheers and applause ) >> trevor: what's going on, everybody? welcome to "the daily show." i'm trevor noah. thank you so much for tuning in. thank you for coming out in person. good to see you, everybody. good to see you. take a seat. let's do this thing. let's jump straight into it. we have a great show for you.
1:15 am
domino's is dying in italy. donald trump has taken a vow of silence. and you like jordan klepper at trump rallies you will want to see this one. let's do this people. let's jump strayed strait into today's headlines. ( applause ) all right, before we get into the big stories, let's camp up on a few other things going on in the world. first up, domino's pizza has announced that it is closing the last of its restaurants in italy. and, yes-- yes, they had domino's in italy. italy has drunk people, too. ( laughter ) you know, if you ask me, them going out of business in italy was actually the best thing that could have happened to them. because think about it-- they came to the land of pizza. and then they injected cheese into the crust? ( laughter ) they're lucky they didn't get the death penalty, you know. the italians are like, what have you done to the pita?
1:16 am
cuban firefighters have successfully distinguished the largest fire in cuba's history which burned for five days after lightning struck an oil depot that generates power for basically the entire country. i was surprised that america knows how to make lightning,000. in tech news-- in tech news, whatsapp, the world's largest messaging app has announced it's launching a new privacy feature that will allow users to leave group chats without everyone in the group knowing. which is a much better system than the one before. ( applause ) yeah. because before, this you had to text everyone in the group that you were going out for a pack of cigarettes and never come back. i know, i know for most of the americans whatsapp is sort of like celsius-- you sort of know what it is, but you don't use it. for the rest of the world this is huge news. you have to understand almost everyone in the world uses whatsapp. the problem is anyone can add
1:17 am
anyone else to a group chat. yeah. you don't have to have consent from them. you may not even know these people. this morning, i spent an hour arguing with 42 africans about whether coal stoves are better than wood-burning stoves. here's the thing. i don't own a coal stove. i don't own a wood-burning stove. and i can't leave the group chap because when i try, whatsapp notifies them. something must have happened. as i was saying, if the wood buburns -- noooo! i'm just going to creep out. i'm going to slowly creep out, jst disappear from the group. all right, let's move on to the story that is still rocking these here united states. and it's about donald jamaicking me crazy trump. he is being hit with multiple criminal investigations for no reason, except for the crimes he probably committed. tow trying to keep up with all
1:18 am
the latest persecutions it's time for a brand-new segment we call "america's most tremendously wanted." ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> trevor: all right! let's start in new york state, which is currently investigating trump's businesses for tax fraud. yeah, because, apparently, when he was trying to get loans from the bank, he was all like, "i'm out of control." when he was reporting his taxes to the i.r.s., suddenly he was like, "i ain't got no money, sir." as part of this investigation, the new york attorney general has already questioned trump's beloved children-- and also, eric. but today-- ( applause ) today it was the donald's turn to go under oath. and i'll give credit to the man. you know, he could have bitched out, but, no, he stood tall, and he walked into that interrogation room, and then
1:19 am
bitched out. ( laughter ) >> former president donald trump says he has invoked his fifth amendment right against self-incrimination, refusing to answer any questions in his deposition before the new york attorney general, letitia james. in a statement, trump says he had no choice, because he and his family are the targets of what he called an unfounded, politically motivated witch hunt. trump was set to testify under oath about his business practices, but faced with those questions, he's decided not tatalk. >> trevor: trump decided not to talk? ( laughter ) i mean, now we know something shady is going on, right? when has donald trump ever refused to talk. we can't get the man to stop talking. donald trump not talking is like taylor swift taking the bus. that's not a thing! i didn't even know this guy was capable of not talking. he must have been shocked. yeah, when he found out that not speaking was something that was
1:20 am
allowed, i mean, "you mean this thing doesn't have to be moving 24/7? that's amazing! i could just close my mouth and keep it closed, and everything would be fine, so fine. such a beautiful idea! total silence. more silence than anyone in the history of silence, and here i go, folks... silence. you're not hearing a thing. wonderful silence. it's so quiet-- you can't hear anything. nobody's ever been this quiet. ( laughter ) so quiet." now-- ( applause ) a lot of people-- a lot of people, a lot of people believe when you plead the fifth, it means that you're guilty. but no. i don't believe that. all right upon i know people do, but i don't believe that. you might just not want to incriminate yourself. but i get it.
1:21 am
there are some people who truly believe that if you plead the fifth, you are guilty. and one of those people is donald j.trump. >> taking the fifth, i think it's disgraceful. fifth amendment. fifth amendment. fifth amendment. horrible. horrible! the mob takes the fifth. if you're innocent, why are you taking the fifth amendment? >> trevor: yes, donald, if you're innocent why are you taking the fifth amendment? ( applause ) why are you taking the fifth amendment? ( applause ) it's really amazing how of all of trump's enemies, his worst enemy is just him from the past. yeah, that guy's relentless. present-day trump is probably like, will this guy just shut up. it's so easy. just watch. quiet. totally silent. not a sound." so when anyone else pleads the fifth, trump says it proves that they're a criminal. but now, now that trump is in the hot seat, suddenly he sees
1:22 am
it nidifferent way. and maybe it's because his lawyers explained it in a way he could understand. "it's like signing an n.d.a., but with yourself." "so i'm the porn star." it turns out new york's investigation might be the least of trump's worries because-- you remember this-- two days ago, the f.b.i. raided trump's house to look for classified documents that he illegally took from the white house. and remember, remember this-- we do not know what those documents are. they could be anything. they could be nuclear codes. they could be battle flans, or ivanka's job description-- yeah, that was so top secret, she didn't know what it was. or he could have taken the introductions to the white house tv remote. now joe biden has no idea how to change the channel. "come on, man, i want to watch 'happen days'. change the channel, please!" ( applause )
1:23 am
i know, i know some of you are wondering right now, some of you are thinking, trevor, is a former president keeping documents that they have already had in their possession, is that, that serious of a crime? trump didn't look at the documents when he was president, so you think he's looking at them now? look, i kind of agree with you. i'll be honest. i didn't think it was that serious of a matter. but my opinion doesn't count. the reason this is the way it is is because there was once an american president who believed that this crime was so serious, he increased the penalty from one year to five years in prison. now who was that president? ( laughter ) donald "just look at him now," trump. trump's removal of documents might violate a 28 anti-act he signed into law increasing the penalty for mishandling of documents to five years in prison. trump signed the law after spending years accusing hillary
1:24 am
clinton of illegally storing documents on a private email server. >> trevor: ♪ looks like he did it again ♪ oh, i love this. how can you not? after spending years saying, "lock her up," donald trump signed a law that might get him locked up instead. this guy's basically a real-life wily coyote. yeah, he leaves traps for all his enemies, but somehow he's the one who keeps getting smooshed on the road. it's just him every single time. so thanks to trump, this crime is a big deal. which is why the red hat brigade has come out in full force to defend him, and they're throwing everything at the wall, everything. "the biden administration is just out to get trump. the judge who approved the raid is anti-trump. mishandling the classified documents isn't a big deal, unless you're hillary clinton." but today, today's really interesting. they seem to be coalescing around a new talking point.
1:25 am
and it's that the f.b.i. wasn't at mar-a-lago to take evidence. they were there to plant evidence. >> donald trump, writing on "truth social" today, "everyone was asked to leave the premises. they wanted to be left alone without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking what they were doing, taking or-- hopefully not-- 'planting.'" >> quiet honestly, i'm concerned that they may have planted something. at this point, who knows. >> we know they doctor evidence. we know they plant evidence. >> do i know that the boxes of material they took from mar-a-lago, that they will not put things in those boxes to entrap them? how do we know? >> his lawyers said they brought in backpacks. what was in those backpacks? did they bring those into fill them up? or did they have something in there? > >> trevor: yeah, what was in those backpacks. trump's world, they're all trying to do, this trying thear trying to get ahead of everything. they're trying to get ahead of what everyone hearing what the f.b.i. found in the house by suggesting whatever it is they put it there themselves.
1:26 am
"the f.b.i. is going to say they found all these secret documents and a bunch of pictures of brad pitt glued on it. it looks like my face is kissing brad pitt's face. but that's all planted, folks. it's not real." that's a classic move. we've seen this before. at some point, every kid has trieded to pull this move with his parents when they're about to get busted. "before you search my room for weed, know there have been a lot of burglars breaking into houses and putting half-smoked joints in sneakers, so if you find something, that's probably them." what is amazing to me is how totally united every single conservative has been in defending trump, when we still have no idea what the f.b.i. found at mar-a-lago. no one, no conservative has been like, "let's wait and see." actually, i think senator scott said that. the rest of them they're just like, "no." i do know this, i haven't seen one person on fox who is even open to the idea that trump may have done something wrong, not
1:27 am
even one. it feels like if someone at fox even suggested that trump might be wrong, a trap door would open. ( laughter ) yeah, they'd just fall into a pit of pronouns. aaaahh! they, them, he, me? ahhh! i don't get it! i don't get it! ( applause ) so, in 48 hours, conservatives have decided the f.b.i. is corrupt, trump is being framed, and the only crime he could be guilty of is looking so damn good in that suit. as for the rest of us, we're just going to have to wait and see how the story unfolds. all right, that's it for today's headlines. but let's move on to something everybody loves. it's time to check in on today's lotto numbers with our very own dulce sloan, everybody! yeah! >> yeah! ( applause ) it's me! hello. ( cheers and applause )
1:28 am
hello. >> trevor: so, dulce, are you-- are you excited to do the lotto for the people? >> i plead the fifth, trevor. ( laughter ) but, let's get started. okay, you lotto, i lotto, hey-hey. hey! >> trevor: what, the letter "k." that's not how the lotto works. dulce why? >> we're not doing numbers. we're doing letters today. you know whatle doesn't work-- your lotto. what are we giving out? every time i do this, nobody wins. >> trevor: most people don't win-- the lotto is not about winning, and it's about the numbers and you sit home and say i would have picked the numbers. you didn't win the billion, i didn't win the billion, but we had fun with the billion. ( laughter ) >> but at some point, somebody was going to win. in this lotto, nobody wins! name one person that's won your lotto. >> trevor: okay, that's not the point. >> that is the point!
1:29 am
( laughter ) are "e." ( laughter ) ( applause ) you see, today, i'm not picking numbers because you didn't give anybody a paper with numbers. does anybody in here have a slip? >> audience: no! >> so why, why would i pick numbers? i'm picking a name. you know why? because everybody has a name. right ( cheers and applause ) listen, listen, i mean, what's your name, trevor? ( laughter ) >> trevor: trevor. >> right! see, you got the "e." you're still in it. ( laughter ) okay, listen, by the way, domino's pizza closing in italy, that's so embarrassing. ( laughter ) do you know how bad something has to be to close in rome?
1:30 am
the coliseum is still open and it's in ruins. ( laughter ) it's not getting renovated or nothing. "house hunters" is not coming. them funny looking twin boys that look like they murder people, they're not coming. ( applause ) but the coliseum, still open. >> trevor: that's true. domino's is not. >> jesus headlined there 2,000 years ago and they're still lining up to get in. but domino's. they were like, "this shit has to close!" but i get it. can you imagine being a beautiful italian tomato, and you end up in a domino's pizza. ( laughter ) girl. ewww! "i." >> trevor: no, what is-- what? ( applause ) i don't know why you--
1:31 am
>> "s." by the way, whatsapp letting you sneak out of group chats? i want you to know i'm leaving. ( laughter ) i need you to know. you know why i'm leaving? because this chat is dry! i'm talking 40 days in the desert suck on sweaters dry! chopping your eyeballs dry! the only reason people leave group chats is because it's bother. you're talking about socks. i don't even like shoes. i'm gone! but you know what? you whan we need to bring back to really let people know we left the chat. the a.o.l. door slam. you left that chat it was like, bam! i want that sound for everything. when you want to follow somebody, bam! you unfriend somebody, bam! or when you block somebody, i was mutombo to pop up and say,

electors in and shove that on somebody. >> right. >> you wouldn't vote for somebody like that. >> right. >> ron johnson did that. >> we want people that believe in the constitution. >> he did try to bring fake electors to mike pence. >> okay. >> the maga crowd is celebrating their scotus ruling, turning back the clock on women's rights half a century, but is that far enough? when you think about the future of the g.o.p., what decade from the past does it look like? >> i would say 50s. >> 50s. 1850s. >> 19. >> 1950s. okay, so 1950s. >> yeah. >> not slavery, 1850s. but pre-civil rights 1950s. >> yeah. >> that's the sweet spot. >> it's a happy medium. >> it's a happy medium. things are separate but equal. >> yeah. >> i would hope this crowd would want to keep discussing real issues and not get distracted by conspiracies, but people had some thoughts. >> i'm not going to be a conspiratists or anything like that. i watched a movie with robin williams in it.
1:39 am
it was called "man of the year." and guess what? they had election fraud back then. the machines, they're switching to doing it electronically, and they were counting wrong. >> trevor: is this a documentary. >> no, it's just a movie. >> are there any lessons we can take from mother & mindy? >> no. >> who do you see as the current legitimate president? >> i don't think we currently have one. if we do, maybe hopefully trump is running behind the scenes, keeping the military on our side. >> recent attack that took out of the leader of al qaeda, who ordered that attack? >> i don't know. i didn't read a whole lot of that. i try to stay out of the media as much as possible, it's all kind of theatric. >> you're not somebody who gives into theatrics. >> right. >> right. >> there's a huge push to normalize pedophilia. >> how do they normalize it. >> when you go online, there's a whole list of pedophile symbols. there are a circular, a lot of triangles, color. a lot of pizza related. ping-pong pizza, for example. >> that's a pedophile pizza.

1:49 am
basketball fan. anyone who knows me, knows basketball, i'm the guy. and then i became really obsessed with african players in the n.b.a. so every time there's the draft, i will check, what are the names that resemble the ones that we recognize, right? and what's their story to get to the draft? so when giannis was drafted, and i read his in 2013, he hasn't bounced a ball. this is before being a two-time m.v.p. and all this stuff. i read his story, and i said if ever i make a basketball movie, it's this gaal's story i want to tell. >> trevor: it really is a story worth telling because people see him now, you know, and he's a star "the greek freak." and it seems obvious. but, man, when you watch the movie you realize what a journey he was on. you went to those locations and made the story in the real place. you could have done it anywhere. you could have faked it. why did you go to the actual land where it happened? >> for me, that authenticity was important. you had to-- in the movie the basketball court where they're othat's the basketball court he started playing on. >> trevor: i love that. >> when he's sleeping in the
1:50 am
gym, that's the gym he slept in. when they're selling, that's where they sold. that for me was important. >> trevor: you talk about him sleeping in a gym. we sought clip with the shoes. people really don't understand how hard giannis and his family worked to get here. and what was interesting was in the making of the movie, you know, we saw, for instance, with the williams sisters, they were heavily involved in the telling of the story because they wanted their story to be told accurately. giannis said the same thing. he said, "i do not thpt to be about me, because this is about what the family did to get me here." how did you gain his trust? how did he say, "you are the right guy and you get it?" what was that connection like? >> the thing sfirstly, what a generous gift, the family. as you see him with the family, that's how it was. like, he wanted to make sure that his-- the sacrifices of his mom and dad came through. it's a love letter to his parents, you know,. >> trevor: right. >> he has that beautiful speech in his m.v.p. speech that says, "when you're a little kid you don't see the future, but your parents fighter for you."
1:51 am
and they had parents that sought future for them. and every meeting with them is a family meeting. it's giannis, it's veronika, thanasis, costas, and alex, producer bernie goldman and the folks from biz me, we all gather around to discuss the film, like it's a family affair. and they were so generous. his mom gave us access, we could call on them. it was a real family affair. and i think that's-- they were so open to us having access and getting is it theor right. for me, i wanted to get it right. there was no-- like, i was very happy to, like, giannis, is how it went down? and they were so generous like that. so it was great. >> trevor: let's talk about giannis himself. you know, i like that you said he gave a motivational spespeec, you know, when he was the m.v.p. it seems like this is how he sees the world. every press conference i've seen of his, he says something inspirational. you know, people go like, "you had a great game.

what does this mean for the future?" he's like, "the game has passed. i'm only looking to what i'm going to do next. you're only as good as your last game." in dissecting his story, did you find where the magic came from? what is it that managed-- you know, where the family managed to create three n.b.a. champions? like, how is that possible? >> i think, like i said, the first time you hear the story, you go this is amazing. this is an amazing stp. how is this possible? you meet them and they're so authentic. i think it's that authenticity. you ask about the greek team. how are they going to adjust to you. and he said, "no, i adjust to the team." that's the thing everybody responds to. >> trevor: you're the director. you're capturing the story. you want to us feel the pain giannis and his people felt but not villainize the greek people he grew up with. how do you find know that balance in the storytelling? >> i think like everyone who travels somewhere and comes into another place, you're coming to a place with expectations.

so for me, giannis' story of charles and veronika, leaving nigeria, coming to greece, similar to my grandparents who left barbados and went to london, or my father and my late mom-- rest her soul-- who moved to south africa. it's within our story. so for me pa apart from the warh and how they approached those things, i tapped into my grandparents. and my grandparents as immigrants from barbados to london, that house is full of laughter. that house is full of joy. these are people who are not allowing the circumstances to dictate who they are as people. >> trevor: i love that. >> some piece of paper says,"i'm not a greek" whatever that is. that's not my problem. that pieces of paper is something else. i can be a human being and i can transcend all these things. and i think that's the story. they didn't allow the circumstance to dictate for them. i think for someone like myself who has all these multiple heritages, that's what i identified when i first read the story. i was like, "this is my story."
1:54 am
