Hillary Rodham Clinton & Chelsea Clinton – Co-writing “The Book of Gutsy Women” | The Daily Show


Welcome… (cheering and applause continue) Welcome back to the show. Does this ever get, like, tired?
Just walking around and people cheering for you
when you walk into rooms? -Well, that’s…
-I cheer for her. -You cheer for her?
-I mean, why not? Just, like,
solo standing ovations? -You know.
-Well, it is Halloween night, so I think there’s a lot
of energy in the air. No, no, I-I think you get this. I’ve-I’ve watched videos
of you walking into restaurants together, as a family. I’ve seen you walking in alone.
I’ve seen… There seems to be this feeling where you walk around
the country, and people go… It’s a little bit of like, “Aw!” But it’s also like, “Yay!” Like, that-that’s a cool fee… It’s… I mean,
it’s not the presidency, but it’s a cool
consolation prize, no? Well, that’s true. Yeah, yeah. It-it does, um,
make up for it… a little bit. Um, Chelsea, thank you very much
for being here. You came from trick-or-treating, -like, now.
-I did. Yes. You literally just went
trick-or-treating. -Literally. -But you didn’t…
you didn’t dress up as any… You just took the kids
trick-or-treating. -I just took the kids. Um,
we had a Moana. -NOAH: Right. -Uh, a clock striking midnight
from Cinderella. -NOAH: Okay. -And a pumpkin.
-NOAH: Oh, I like this. -I like this. And… -Yeah.
The pumpkin didn’t choose, ’cause he’s three months old,
but everybody else chose. ‘Cause, like, if you came
to my door on Halloween, I would be like,
“Oh, my God. You l… “You dressed as Chelsea Clinton.
That’s amazing! -How did you…?” -Amazing!
I’ve never really thought that I have, like,
a built-in Halloween costume. -Yes, you have
a built-in Halloween… -Yeah. When people go,
“Chelsea Clinton,” you’re like, -“No. It’s good makeup,
though, right?” -Yeah, hey. Yeah, it’s a good… Um… You know,
sometimes people will say to us, “You know, do you know you look
just like Hillary Clinton?” And I say,
“Yeah, I’ve heard that.” (laughter) Let me, um, say, first of all, congratulations
on a phenomenal book. I didn’t know what to expect.
The Book of Gutsy Women. I didn’t know if it was gonna be
a book about American women, a book about political women,
but it’s just a book about women who have changed
not just their world but the world
in some way, shape or form. What’s interesting
is that you wrote it together. You’ve written many books
separately, but this was your first book
writing together as a mother and daughter. As someone who’s written a book
without my mother, I cannot imagine
what it would be like to write something
with my mother. -How do you… -Is that why
you’re staring so intently? How do you not hate each other
at this point? -What is the process like?
-Uh, it was a lot of fun. It also…
It did take some adjustment, um, because my mother
still writes longhand. -Mm. -Like, like, writes out
the words? -Yes. Yes. Although I said this
at an event, and I could see, uh, like,
a teenager up in the rafters turn to his mother and say,
“What’s longhand?” -It’s like, at least… -No,
’cause there’s a generation -that goes like, “What is that?”
-Yeah, what is that? -Writing the words out with
a pen and no autocorrect. -Yes. No. And, like, no ability
to track changes -or have comment boxes.
-Right. And you’re doing it… -Like, are you doing it
on computer in, like, a… -Yes. -Like 2019.
-So, how do you… (laughter) So, how do you compare
the notes, then? When you… Like, do you bring
the longhand into the digital, or do you, like, give it to her and be like,
“You longhand my work”? Well, so, my mother
would take photographs of, like, each page. -Wow.
-And then text or e-mail me -the photographs of the page.
-Wow. Yeah. So, like, when we were
particularly working on the things
that we wrote together… Like, we write about Rosa Parks
and Claudette Colvin together. -Yes. -So, I would, like,
type my Claudette Colvin essay and sent it to her
as an attachment. Like, a Word document.
And she would take pictures of, like, each individual page
of her Rosa Parks essay and, like, send me,
like, page one. I can feel your frustration
as you’re telling me this story. -I’m still working through it.
-This is… this is nice. -Yeah.
-I can… I can feel that. Um, why did you choose
to write this book together? I mean,
you’ve had many opportunities. You could have written
about anything– your family, politics, your life–
but this is a specific book, and it feels like
for a specific time. Why? Because we really believe
that, uh, in today’s world, uh, the stories of gutsy women– and, literally,
there are many millions of them, but we chose 103,
uh, to write about, uh, because their stories
tell us, yes, about… the struggles that they endured and their persistence to try
to improve their own lives and the lives
of people around them. But I think especially
in today’s world, we need to be reminded
of these kinds of stories. Uh, and they are historic
and contemporary and even a few fictional. And they were women
who inspired me as a little girl and then throughout my life,
and the same with Chelsea. In fact, we started talking about, you know,
inspirational women when she was a little girl. And, so, we want to share
these stories, and we hope that people can find
some, uh… some message
that will help them. -Right. -Uh, especially,
you know, given the difficulties that a lot of… a lot of people
around the world face right now. It’s interesting, Chelsea,
because you’ve said, you know,
there was a time in your life when you watched your mom
running for president, and there were more women
in space than running for president. -Two.
-Right. And now you-you have
a plethora of women. I mean,
you have six in the race, and you’ve seen
how many women participated in-in the midterms
and won, as well. Do you feel like we’re noticing
a shift in society that’s positively moving us to a place
where there’s equality? Not there yet, but just moving
us in that direction? I think we’re
absolutely making progress. I also really appreciate how
you framed the question, Trevor, because it’s super important
that we don’t get complacent. -NOAH: Mm-hmm.
-And that we also understand still how far we have to go. I mean, even though we had
an unprecedented number of women run for Congress in 2018, we were still less
than a quarter -of all declared candidates.
-NOAH: Wow. So, making progress, but we still have a long ways
to go to get to parity. But as we’ve seen, like,
who runs for office really matters ’cause
it determines who holds office. -NOAH: Right.
-And I’m so thrilled that my children are growing up with the most diverse Congress
in American history. You have chosen 103 women
in this book who all have different stories
of being gutsy, but what would you find
was the common thread that made them who they are? One, I think the sense of,
just, deep purpose. Sometimes something
that they knew from when they were
a little girl. Like, Jane Goodall always knew she wanted to work
with animals. And Sally Ride– you know, the
first American woman in space– um, really became a physicist because she wasn’t
a good-enough tennis player. So she kind of fe–
found her passion later in life. But what is so distinct
about all these women is that they brought others
along with them, sometimes consciously
breaking down barriers and sometimes just really aware
of their example. And I find that really powerful
and gutsy, that it wasn’t just
for themselves– it was for others, too.

    TROLLS in the comment section people get a life

  37. Sabrina Doctor says:


  38. Şqųąņçho MçPøņçho says:

    Okay. But why did you sabotage Bernie and Tulsi?

  39. Şqųąņçho MçPøņçho says:

    Okay but seriously. Why were you and your hubby so tight with Jeff Epstein?

  40. Milan van Eijk says:

    WHY. Can't. She. Just. GO. Away. I suppose Trevor ''had'' to do this interview. But when will Hillary Narcissistica Clinton step aside? For f*k sake hasn't see ruined enough?

    Boo! Fuck them both.

  44. fuchusen666 says:

    They are so ridiculously out of touch, I'd laugh if I wasn't so busy face palming over and over. If that cornball title had come across a publishers desk from a no name writer, it would have instantly been in the he round file. They are just living in their own little elite bubble world.

  50. BumDumb says:

    The person that gave us Trump trying to sell some BS book. Why the hell is she relevant?
    Go back to the forest where you belong.

  51. Ano Niem says:

    Pothead Chelsea 😅 she loves smoking joints 🤭 you go girl 😉

  52. Sebastien McCarthy says:

    Why are you giving this corrupt old hag a platform? She’s poison for democrats right now and probably one of the most disliked politicians in the country.

  53. Lori Morse says:

    Chelsea you will be old one day and your daughter will make fun of you…just sayin. Love ya Hillary. Arkansas in da house!!

  54. Andrew Schmid says:


  55. ArticunoDosTres says:

    I voted for Hillary but I gotta be honest. In this one instance I'm happy Trump won. Take at a look at both of them: Trump won but he's miserable, he hates it. Now look at Clinton, she's relaxed, making jokes, spending time with her daughter. She seems happier now than ever and I gotta say, she deserves that at least.

  56. wendy jenkins says:


  57. Theodot Roosebit says:

    Clinton got paid by Trump and the Russians to steal Bernie's nomination – and now just bluffs in public as if she is against Trump. Have fun getting fooled by her.

  58. SkrawnyJonny says:

    Hope she runs again. To see her lose again. Make trevor cry again 2020

    Hey Mr. Noah, can you invite some "unusual suspects" to your program? Yvette Carnell and Antonio Moore? Byron Allen? Professor William Darity? Dr. Kevin Cosby?

  60. Johnny Beasley says:

    She would have done less damage to America and the world had she been elected. However her dirty tactics, lack of truthfulness and raging self entitlement all would have been reinforced had she got it. The DNC have hopefully learned from that. It's a real shame there isn't a better choice for American middle voters than these two shitty parties.

  61. Naomi Lashal says:

    See America what you missed!! Shame on you!

  62. Kio Revana says:

    Are we just gon pretend Epstein didn't go to her daughters wedding? 🤔

  63. Ernest Scribbler says:

    Trevor should be embarrassed to sell out like this. 👎

  64. julian12465 says:

    What the hell are they doing here?

  65. Brigham Youngster says:

    Ok boomer

  66. ali bakkar says:

    Any criticism against Hillary = conspiracy theory

    She didn’t loose from conspiracy theories she lost cause she a liar and a deeply flawed and horrible candidate. Literally anyone else could’ve beaten trump that year.

  67. Tyrone Biggims says:

    Please will this witch sit her a$$ down, she reminds me of that snl skit when trump was following her around the debate stage like a predator stalking. She's just lurking around, ready to f**k sh^t up again, please dont jump your unelectable a$$ in the race dam. Just popping up a lil to much and im starting to get uncomfortable. "SIT YOUR A$$ DOWN HILLARY PLEASHHH"!

  68. So WhoIsMilton says:

    This is proof Trevor Noah Is an Apartheid which the children of Africa claimed him to be. Noah laughs and gives Hilary a Platform after she and obama helped destroy an AFRICAN Nation which resulted in slave auction of dark skinned Libyan's. And Trevor says nothing about it. These people are sick disgusting human beings

  69. Jon Gotti says:

    Do they actually think people find trevor Noah funny? All his jokes consist of shit talking the president. News flash we voted for him! Not killary!

  70. REDDGLARE says:

    Of course she writes it longhand, last place she needs to be is using email.

  71. Zak Thanos says:

    Epstein didn’t kill himself😂🤣🇺🇸💎🍾

  72. Laudon1780 says:

    Gislene Maxwell the woman many Eppstein victims pointed out as the "scout" of the most prolific pedophile in the world had an aisle seat at Chelsea's wedding.

  73. Laudon1780 says:

    Learning about women who change the world is important, but don't get your advice from women who are friends with, and cover for billionaire rapists and pedophiles.

  74. julian whitton says:

    Voted for her in 2016, but still gtfo of the daily show why does Trevor have her on? If Chelsea wasn't her biological daughter Hillary would've sold her to Epstein, FACT…. Prove me wrong that Chelsea isn't a Hillary clone preparing for a 2030 election run

  75. Glass Marble says:

    Last nail to John Stewart's legacy

  76. Sophia Jordan says:

    Hilary looks good here

  77. glennsteven 0917 says:

    BOOOOOOO!!!!…..Why do the mainstream media keep giving voice to these terrorists? GO AWAY CLINTONS!
    FYI,Warren is secretly talking to this criminal,HILLARY CLINTON.
    BERNIE 2020

  78. justin says:

    We the American people love and support president trump

  79. Vegeta says:

    Is this ok to put Clintons in your show "Jeffrey Epstein"

  80. Fauler Perfektionist says:

    "Longhand?" What, you mean "by hand?" Shoot. I write things out that way all the time. It's not necessary if you're writing efficient composition like essays, reports or term papers (which, from the sound of it, is what Chelsea and Hillary are doing), but if you're writing creative composition, like stories or poems, you're bound to have constant dealings with writer's block if you don't. I don't know what it is about writing things out by hand, but it bring the ideas out of me prodigiously, and I'm barely a year older than Chelsea.

  81. 50jakecs says:

    Why our we wasting our time listening to Hillary Clinton? She's part of the reason the Democratic Party has been overtaken by Wall Street and why Trump is in charge of the nuclear weapons.

  82. Jason Fladager says:

    Something tells me Hilary knows how to work a gmail.

  83. Gerardo Ulloa says:

  88. xseqer says:

    We have a 6000 year WRITTEN case history (SIX THOUSAND YEARS!) of Patriarchal society. It is 6000 years of failure, of death, mass murder, Genocide, Holocaust, and complete ignorance and disrespect of our physical and biological context to the point that Human extinction is ON THE TABLE. Six thousand years of Patriarchal FAILURE. "Equality" is bullshit unless female Humans are as absolutely incompetent as male Humans have proven themselves to be beyond all argument. The only significant change Humanity has available to it that MIGHT save our civilization, or at least save us from complete extinction, is NOT 'equality' but full blown MATRIARCHY. 'Equality' leaves the major and well-proven source of Human incompetence, Males, still in the power loop contaminating all that they have the capacity to perceive and paving over the rest. Seriously! And this is NOT sexist, it's GENEPOOL SURVIVALIST! What other collective behavioral change can we make with any of the promise that allowing our Life Creators, rather than our Life Destroyers, to run things? Perhaps we would discover in such a scenario that our females, when having power, are just as corrupt, venal, conscienselessly murderous, and incompetent as any male 'leader' in these last 250 GENERATIONS. Well, then we could go off into genepool eternity with the knowledge that, after our derangement into homicidal intraspecific competition circa 70,000 years ago and our continuously shrinking collective cranial volume since that time (-200cc, CEREBRAL CORTEX), we never really stood a chance anyway.

And don't point out the popular votes since MOST of those votes were people voting against trump, and not for her, just the fact that common sense people didn't want trump in office …
