What The Hell Happened This Week? - Week of 6/20/2022 | The Daily Show

What The Hell Happened This Week? - Week of 6/20/2022 | The Daily Show
tick tock the world's biggest social media sites and the app that proves americans can read subtitles just fine when they want to yeah hundreds of millions of people around the world use tik tok every day because i mean

what

else are you gonna do while you're pooping right but

what

many tick tock users might not realize is tick tock is owned by a chinese company and now we're finding out that while you're watching videos of people dancing china might be watching you leaked
what the hell happened this week   week of 6 20 2022 the daily show
audio from social media company tick tock's internal meeting suggests that beijing has repeatedly accessed data from users here in the us the recording suggests that tick-tock is falling down on its promise to wall off americans data from its chinese parent company with one of the app's researchers telling colleagues quote i get my instructions from the main office in beijing oh no china's secretly watching all of us on tech talk now they're going to know our money doesn't
jiggle jiggle it folds but yeah based on these audio leaks it looks like tick tock's parent company in china actually does have access to our private data which means the chinese government probably has access to our private data which is scary because tick tock knows everything about you yeah tracks

what

you watch

what

you like and then it only

show

s you that stuff like if you asked me to see my for you page i'd be like whoa whoa whoa that's too personal yeah just look at my nudes
instead actually that's a mini coke and that's why if you remember donald trump was trying to ban tiktok a couple of years ago right because the u.s government realized that china could use

this

as a tool to influence americans and also because eric kept trying to send him friend requests and you know it's a little crazy how we're so hooked on social media that governments don't even need to steal our data anymore right we'll just give it to them like back in the day
they'd have to hack into a database or break into the social security building now we're just giving it to them for free and i blame myself yeah i'm part of

this

problem i also took part in that personal information challenge that was a big mistake i hope i go viral all right let's move on from all the data that you're putting into tick tock to all the data that's coming out of the january 6 hearings the investigation that will somehow result in less punishment than the
oscars slap last

week

we learned mostly about how trump knew that he had lost then we learned about how mike pence almost got hanged and today's session was all about how president trump and his allies tried to pressure state officials to sign on to his various schemes for overturning the election everything from throwing out biden votes to creating slates of fake electors to even eating the constitution really fast before anyone could look up the election laws and one of the people trump
depended on most in

this

pressure campaign was rudy giuliani his personal lawyer and final boss in a resident evil game unfortunately it seemed like no one wanted to take rudy's calls pennsylvania house speaker brian cutler received

daily

voicemails from trump's lawyers in the last

week

of november mr speaker

this

is rudy giuliani and jenna ellis we're calling you together because we'd like to discuss obviously the election hey brian it's rudy i really have something
important to call your attention that i think really changes things cutler felt that the outreach was inappropriate and asked his lawyers to tell rudy giuliani to stop calling but giuliani continued to reach out i understand that you don't want to talk to me now i just want to bring some facts to your attention and talk to you as a fellow republican oh wow that's desperate yeah rudy made so many unanswered calls the iphone just started labeling him as spam yeah and not just his calls his
body it's 90 spam and can we acknowledge

what

a fall

this

has been huh

this

man went from being an american hero to now sounding like a telemarketer selling a coup if you order now i'll throw in that chair abraham lincoln is sitting on yeah

hell

o

hell

o

hell

o and you know

this

is just another example of how historic president trump really was any other time in u.s history if the president's lawyer called someone they would take that call but when trump's vampire lawyer called
people everyone was like tell him i'm not here yeah tell him i went camping and i died prepare a bear ate my face tell him i'm not here also not that i'm encouraging it because i'm not but if you are going to try and overturn an election maybe don't leave voicemails it's a paper trail also it's

2022

text who leaves voicemails you realize how thirsty you're coming off hey it's me again on rudy just hit him with a quick late night you up for subverting democracy
eggplant emoji red hat emoji vampire emoji come on rudy keep up with the times all right but let's move on it has now been almost a month since the tragic school shooting in yuvaldi and while shootings like

this

are always traumatic

this

particular one has been made worse by how the police in uvalde have responded right they didn't go in they waited for an hour and then they even stopped parents from trying to save their own kids and if that wasn't bad enough they've been trying
to block information about that day from coming out and each time more information comes out we learn why

this

morning the first surveillance image from inside rob elementary emerges the photo

show

ing multiple police officers standing inside the building with rifles and at least one ballistic shield 19 minutes after the gunman entered

this

despite school police chief pete ardondo's original claim that the officers weren't properly armed to take down the gunman at that point officers
didn't enter the classroom and killed the shooter until 58 minutes later the state's director of public safety stephen mccraw testifying before lawmakers blasting law enforcement's response as his department's investigation uncovers new evidence about the massacre he says officers were waiting for keys to enter but investigators finding the door couldn't be locked from the inside and saying that officers never even tried opening it yeah you know the story just keeps getting
worse and worse every single time we learn something it gets worse and worse we already knew that they waited far too long to confront the shooter but now we found out that they lied about not having enough weapons to go in because it turns out they had assault rifles they had body armor and ballistic shields so i'm sorry

what

else were they waiting for the invincible star from mario

what

was that huh in the room like how do they not go in you know which is by the way another thing that
we've learned they didn't even try to get in the classroom they didn't even try they told everyone that they had to wait for a key because the door was locked but the door wasn't locked they just never tried to open it which which is ridiculous even people waiting outside like a locked bathroom at starbucks will jiggle the handle after two minutes just to be sure sure they'll try but it turns out these cops couldn't do

what

like

what

what

the dinosaurs in jurassic park
took five minutes to learn they couldn't do that just that and you know

what

's insane about

this

whole story is how the one time the one time it would have been appropriate to go in guns blazing the cops decide to have a picnic outside yeah but if you're black or you have a broken tail light oh then all of a sudden they go all rambo on your ass we're coming in we're coming in it's another reminder that you you can't just trust

what

the police say like

this

is one of
the clearest reminders yes they're police yes you respect them but it doesn't mean you just trust every single thing that they say after an incident journalists shouldn't be reporting

what

the police said they should be investigating

what

actually

happened

because time and time again time and time again we learn that cops in america they basically use the same principle as toddlers they'll tell the truth but only if it doesn't get them in trouble no mommy the cookies tried to
eat me i was just responding and no my body camera wasn't working yeah i turned it off right finally let's move on to some lighter news a lot of exciting stuff

happened

this

week

end drake dropped a surprise new album beyonce dropped a new single and not to be outdone president biden had a drop of his own a scare for president biden today when he fell off his bicycle in rehoboth beach delaware the 79 year old was stopping to talk to reporters when you see there his foot got caught in the
what the hell happened this week   week of 6 20 2022 the daily show
pedal guard as he was dismounting his bike he quickly got to his feet later on his way out of church the president repeated that he was doing just fine and hopped in place several times to prove it oh president biden that that's just embarrassing he was just standing and the bike fell over and you know it's actually too bad because before he fell over he was looking kind of good yeah all of us were like wow look at him riding that bike and he's 80 years old and then he stops and
falls and we're like oh yeah he's 80 years old he's 80 years old and you know it's not just the falling off of the bike that isn't moving but it's the fact that he thought that hopping was going to reassure americans that he still got it you know that little no because you can see you can see when he was hopping in his mind he looked like creed he was like yeah look at me go look at me go when in fact is hopping look like you know when someone is trying to escape a
kidnapper who tied their legs together it was like that now apparently the reason he fell is because his foot got caught in the pedal cage and knowing america means that right now that bicycle is already at guantanamo bay who do you work for the taliban china russia kamala ah the silent treatment huh okay that's how you want to play it well you better start talking soon or by the time i'm done with you you'll be a one speed don't get swapped with me you still though falling down
is always an embarrassing thing to happen to anyone never mind the president which is why former president donald jolly trump he made sure to weigh in one of the greatest travesties of all is to see a person in the white house who even after years of political experience has absolutely no clue how to be the president of the united states and i hope he has recovered because as you know he fell off his bicycle today no i'm serious i hope he's okay fell off a bicycle i make

this

pledge to
you today i will never ever ride a bicycle every bicycle in the world breathe the collective sigh of relief he's not gonna ride us guys he's not gonna ride us thank god gasoline or as scientists call it dinosaur pp over the past few months global demand for oil has kept rising faster than the supply to the point where the price of gas in the united states is now six billion dollars a gallon so drivers are hurting the good news is that as always president biden wants to help the bad
news is that as always it doesn't look like he can the president

this

afternoon called on congress to temporarily suspend the federal gas tax which is right now about 18 cents a gallon it's a move president biden has resisted until today given that it is unlikely to pass congress while officials say a gas tax holiday is worth considering there is a cost those funds are used for repairing roads and infrastructure important priorities across the country

what

the president wants is a
three-month gas tax holiday on both regular gas and diesel going into september you also want states to pass their similar versions of that gas tax holiday the president also had a word specifically here for the oil companies here's

what

he said bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product do it now do it today why are you talking like that is

this

a secret should the rest of us be listening why does he do that thing it's so strange
like joe biden's the only president whose vibe shifts in the middle of a sentence oil companies you better lower the prices please please i'm begging you if you're president you just got to say things otherwise it makes you look weak you know you can't be like mr gorbachev tear down

this

wall if you get around to it it's such an ugly wall or at least painted come on you know i feel like

this

is the big difference between trump and biden you know it's how they use their
power because with trump it was always like oh is he going to use his power and with biden it's like oh is he going to use his power also whoever decided to call it a gas tax holiday that person should be fired it's not a holiday

what

does that mean it's a gas tax holiday no just be like we're not charging gas get your gas tax holly that's the worst holiday of all time but you save 18 cents off of gas and i still have to go to work are you me even arbor day is better than
that and

this

is

what

always confuses me about

this

country right everywhere in the world governments manage to protect their populations from corporate greed right like south africa will limit how high bread prices can go the eu will be like you cannot pump chickens with the same hormones they use in the hulk in china they're like crypto's done and no more dancing on tick tock only homework but whenever the american government has to deal with corporations they've got about as much
power as a tortoise that's stuck on its back you know just like come on oil companies come on pass on your savings drug companies don't overcharge for life-saving drugs please please but still

this

is good news for americans instead of the gas tax going to maintaining roads and infrastructure drivers will now save 18 cents per gallon and then you can use those savings to buy a new car after yours gets swallowed up by a pothole but let's move on to a different problem facing
practically everyone in america gun violence there have been many mass shootings in america over the past couple of decades and after each one people have always said maybe

this

time will be different maybe congress will do something about

this

and every time congress was like no but ever since the mass shooting in buffalo and uvalde last month a group of senators from both parties have been working together to see if they can find any common ground on gun reform and it turns out

this

time is
different ever so slightly

this

morning after decades of partisan gridlock a major breakthrough in congress 14 republicans joining all 50 democrats to advance a new compromise on gun restrictions

this

is a breakthrough and more importantly it's a bipartisan breakthrough the deal includes enhanced background checks for people between 18 and 21 closing the so-called boyfriend loophole preventing romantic partners convicted of domestic violence from buying guns directing more money for states
to implement their own plans to address gun violence and billions for school security upgrades and mental health services and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell calls the deal a common sense package of popular steps that will help make these horrifying incidents less likely while fully upholding the second amendment oh i agree with senator mitch mcconnell thank god the precious second amendment has been preserved oh yes i mean i'm all for protecting kids but the second amendment oh have
you seen that little face have you seen it who's sick sometimes i feel like americans want to protect the constitution more than they want to protect the americans the constitution is supposed to protect it doesn't make any sense oh i'm glad we could protect the second amendment i'll tell you knife the second amendment was in that classroom in new valley the cops would have bust the door down with mitch mcconnell right behind them you're ripping corriere and i will say look
i know for a lot of people it can be hard to know how to feel about

this

deal because it doesn't include a lot of things that people want you know it doesn't ban assault rifles it doesn't raise age limits it doesn't even do universal background checks which is the most basic thing imaginable so for some

this

kind of thing you know feels like trying to stop godzilla by dropping a few mousetraps around the city but on the other hand on the other hand after three decades of nothing
happening

this

deal is something please remember that it is something it's not going to solve everything but it's something and something is always better than nothing that's the entire philosophy behind the hand job all right let's move on if you've been out in new york city over the past few years especially pandemic and through it you've probably noticed a wild new phenomenon and no i'm not talking about how the stuff dripping from air conditioners doesn't
what the hell happened this week   week of 6 20 2022 the daily show
taste as good as it used to which no it really bothers me it just had like a flavor it had a tang when it would like fall in your mouth no the problem i'm talking about is the squads of dirt bikes and atvs flooding the streets and sidewalks like trump supporters trying to find mike pence well now the mayor of new york city has decided to crush

this

problem literally today heavy machinery crushed illegal atvs dirt bikes and motorcycles confiscated by the nypd mayor eric adams waved checkered
flag and work began he said

this

effort was to ensure these vehicles cannot ever terrorize the city again the nypd says that it has seized more than 2 000 of these vehicles city-wide an increase of more than 80 percent from

this

time last year

hell

yeah baby crush those bikes that's

what

i want from my city government yeah i don't even care about the underfunded schools anymore cause

this

rocks by the way why is he waving a checkered flag at the beginning of a race does he not
understand how a race works the guy in the truck is like i've finished already now look i will admit as a new yorker humble brag maybe

this

isn't the biggest problem the city is facing right now you know rents are driving people out of their homes traffic is always bad and the subways are always shutting down because i think we have trains that are scared of the dark or something yeah yeah no i think that's

what

it is in new york you see because they find and then they go into a
tunnel and then they're just like ah you guys should walk i don't know

what

to do

this

is scary in fact instead of crushing these bikes maybe the city could have used them to solve some of the city's problems you know i mean

this

could have been the solution to the subway problem instead of those trains that are always breaking down just drop a bunch of dirt bikes into the tunnel you know yeah let people wheelie to work or give them to the police so they don't have to ride horses
anymore

what

are you doing stopping crime in the 1850s huh there are cattle rustlers on broadway or just hire the dirt bike kids to ride around neighborhoods where the rents have gotten unaffordable help keep the prices down the studio apartment with no bathroom you want it you want it it costs six thousand dollars a month

what

yeah all right give me 50 bucks you can have it all right and finally if you're one of those people who really likes to vape well first of all congratulations on
being basic and second of all you might want to stock up because your supply is about to run out one of the largest makers of e-cigarettes may soon be forced to stop selling its products in

this

country the wall street journal says the fda could order jewel e-cigarettes off the market as soon as today the fda has criticized jewel for gearing its products toward young people it already barred the sale of fruity and sweet e-cigarette cartridges jewel had hoped to continue selling tobacco flavors
it can appeal if the fda does hand down that ban as expected that's right people dual e-cigarettes are about to be banned so your days of going around looking like you're blowing r2d2 are over but

this

is a big move by the fda because you realize jewel is the iconic vaping brand so by them doing

this

it's like going after soda by banning coke or going off to coke by banning don junior the supreme court the only government department where the dress code is retired jedi you all know
how america has been struggling with gun violence for the past let's say uh half a century or so well while everyone is trying to figure out a solution the supreme court just weighed in in the most unhelpful way possible breaking news at

this

hour the u.s supreme court has just issued a major ruling in the challenge to a new york gun law now

this

is the most significant second amendment ruling in more than a decade in a 6-3 decision the court struck down new york's law which places
restrictions on concealed handguns the law in question in new york said to get a concealed carry permit a person had to go to the county sheriff and

show

some special need today the supreme court said that's unconstitutional so

this

will affect new york and it'll affect half a dozen other states that have similar laws in which you had to

show

some heightened need beyond just a general desire for self-defense to get a concealed carry permit

this

expands the second amendment right

what

we
don't know is if it completely eliminates the possibility for any sort of gun gun regulation oh i think we do know i think we do know you can see where

this

is going the supreme court is feeling themselves huh because you realize they finally have all the justices they need to do anything they want it's like amy coney barrett was the last infinity stone that they needed yeah they put it in and now they're just snapping away at all the laws it's like voting rights gun control
miranda rights abortion i love

this

song yeah but yeah the supreme court has struck down restrictions on who can carry guns outside of the home saying that you can't require people to meet certain standards in order to get a license which makes complete sense because that would be making the militia well regulated and i mean you can't do that you know it's not like it's written anywhere basically new york had a law for the past hundred years that said if you want to just carry a
gun around with you wherever you go you need to prove that you have a specific reason you need that gun you know for your protection you have to go to the police you have to tell them you have to explain the whole thing like maybe someone is making threats against you or or maybe you're liam neeson's daughter and people keep trying to kidnap you even though it seems like it would be way easier to kidnap anyone else's daughter at

this

point and the supreme court has said to new york
you can't do that anymore yeah and you know in a way

this

is exciting as a new yorker yeah because i don't know about you guys but whenever i've been sitting in rush hour traffic in new york with drivers screaming at each other and bikers cussing out the drivers and pedestrians wailing at the bikers and the drivers the one thing i always think is man one thing that would calm

this

down is if everyone had a gun right now just a glock or two would really chill

this

situation now and i
mean it will switch things up you know now when you're on the subway and you see a guy reaching into his pants he'll be like oh please let it be a dick please let it be a dick let it be a dick up let it be a beanie and it's crazy how

this

ruling is coming down at the exact same time that congress finally reached a deal on gun reform it took 30 years of trying to come up with these extremely minor gun safety measures and then the supreme court just swoops in and moves everything back
in that direction yeah congress is like we've reached a bipartisan agreement that 18 to 21 year olds can no longer buy guns in leap years between the hours of 3 a.m and 3 15 a.m and then the supreme court is like all right check

this

out starting now every time it rains it rains guns yeah

what

do you guys think so

this

is obviously a big setback for gun safety but if you ask me new york just needs to get creative yeah they need to think outside of the box in the same way that texas did right
look at

what

texas did with banning abortion they weren't allowed to ban it so they just made a crazy new law that basically banned it anyway that's

what

new york needs to do with guns like yeah they should say okay anyone can buy a gun if they want but the gun stores are only open on the nights that the knicks win all right let's move on let's move on from the people you know

what

's funny is like whenever i'm at madison square going and i see the players they're
like did you mom no no i love that make these jokes all right let's move on from the people who are about to cause havoc with all their guns so the people who are already causing havoc with all their guns the police over the last year the city of chicago has been rocked by incidents where police saw a civilian running away they decided to chase after them and somehow they ended up killing them so now the police department has a new plan to stop those types of killings before they start
chicago police officers will no longer be allowed to chase people on foot simply because they run away or give chase over minor offenses the new policy requires enhanced supervision officers must file a report if they start a chase foot chases will be reviewed and officers must weigh the seriousness of the offense against the need to make an arrest officers can't start a chase if they're hurt unaware of their location unable to communicate or lose their radio or gun well yeah i mean if
you're a cop who's lost your radio and gun and you don't know where you are you are in no position to be chasing anyone yeah maybe just throw in the towel my man today is not your day but i think

this

policy actually makes sense because people used to assume that if you're running from a police officer you must have done something wrong and you need to be chased down but there are many reasons why someone might want to run from the police maybe they're scared of the police
or maybe the cop is their ex and they were just walking around in sweat and they don't want their ex to see them and be like oh looks like i made the right choice and even if the person is a legitimate suspect you want to make sure that the crime is worth the chase right because when police chase a suspect it is way more likely to end in violence think about it once somebody makes you sprint across half the city you're way more likely to want to beat their ass when you catch them yeah
nobody's happy when they're forced to run even people running marathons are like as soon as i get to the finish line i'm gonna choke somebody all right finally let's move on to some international news right now inflation is out of control and i mean we all know

this

except probably jeff bezos you know yeah he probably treats bank accounts the same way the rest of us treat closet spaces like oh where do i keep my winter dollars there's no more space but for everyone else
inflation hurts prices are skyrocketing wages aren't keeping up and it turns out it's not just america

this

is happening all over the world which is weird because fox news told me that joe biden is the only reason we have inflation so that means he's also causing it in denmark damn you joe now one country in particular that's been struggling is the united kingdom right where railway workers have been demanding an increase in their pay to help deal with inflation but their demands
have been ignored so

this

week

they took action britain faces its biggest rail strikes in three decades after last minute talks between a union and train companies failed to agree on pay up to 40 000 staffers staged a walkout in a protest over pay and job security good morning from a quieter than normal paddington station where just one in five services will be running as indeed they are around the country the prime minister has told his cabinet these strikes are wrong and unnecessary i want to
say something about the rail strikes that are today causing significant disruption and inconvenience up and down the country making it more difficult for people to get to work uh risking uh people's appointments making it more difficult for kids to sit exams all sorts of unnecessary uh aggravation uh

this

is gonna cause yes it's preposterous i i mean i i need those trains to get to my illegal work parties how else am i supposed to spread cove i'll think about it

this

is really
ridiculous

this

is absolutely disgusting absolutely yes british railway workers are on strike and now british people have no way to travel to their silly sounding towns yeah there's no way someone from barton and the beans can travel to giggleswick or to upton slotsbury or even to another wallop how will they get to another wallop but for real though for real for real the truth is a railway strike is actually really serious right because it is crippling for the uk so many of its people
depend on the trains you know and i know you guys think british people just get around on flying umbrellas but that's just the nannies the people need the trains and please don't get me wrong i also understand that

this

train strike inconveniences countless people in the uk but you know who's also inconvenienced right because people are complaining in the uk they're like oh these people need to get back to work

this

is terrible just get back to work but the train workers are
inconvenienced utilized train workers in the uk can't afford to make ends meet anymore and there's many of them who haven't gotten a pay increase in 10 years so if now's not the time to get a wage increase and 10 years ago wasn't the time and then nothing in between was the time then when is the time right because i don't care

what

anybody says i really don't it's not fair for somebody to work a full-time job but not be able to make ends meet especially when your
bosses make millions in profits like if you if you can't afford to live then

what

's even the point of working you only work so that you can live that's why it's called making a living right working without living is like being a parent but there's no kid yeah think about like parents every parent knows that being a parent is miserable but then your kid they just they smile at you or they do something for the first time and you're like oh it's all worth it it was so
adorable but imagine if there was no child huh imagine if there was no child but you still got woken up in the middle of the night by screams out of no man there's nothing or just every now and again there's just diapers filled with everywhere in your house and you just gotta do you just be like there's no child

what

am i doing

this

for

what

's the point and that's

what

these workers are going through so

this

train strike is a big deal it is affecting customers it's
affecting employees it's affecting the british economy but you know a lot of people don't realize you know who

this

also affects the british trains now that i've stopped working i've had a lot of time alone with my thoughts and i've realized

what

the

hell

am i i'm a train i'm thomas the train but i have a human face but where's the rest of my body do i have arms somewhere do i have a penis is it a human penis or is it a trained penis help me somebody help me find
