100 Comments



In the three years Donald Trump
has been president, America has changed
in many ways. The country
is more divided than ever, official government policies
are now announced on Twitter, and the red phone
in the White House now connects you directly
to KFC. But one change we didn’t expect
from Trump’s presidency was an explosion of books. From anti-Trump books to books calling him
the second coming of Christ, we’ve seen it all. And who could have
ever predicted that so many books would exist, thanks to a president
who can’t read. (laughter) Now, anyone can write a book. And I do mean anyone. But what’s interesting is how many of these books
were written by people who worked inside
the White House. And the latest book
making headlines comes from Nikki Haley,
former ambassador to the U.N. and woman who just captured
James Bond. And she’s not holding back. TV REPORTER: In her memoir
out this week, Nikki Haley takes on former Secretary
of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief
of Staff John Kelly, claiming the two men undermined
and ignored President Trump from inside the White House. Haley writes: “Kelly and
Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted
the president, they weren’t being subordinate, they were trying
to save the country. They should have been saying
that to the president, not asking me to join them
on their sidebar plan. To undermine a president is really
a very dangerous thing. Okay. This is a bombshell
I did not expect. Rex Tillerson and General Kelly were resisting Trump
in the White House? That is shocking. Although it does explain why they were wearing
those pussy hats, but, still, I mean… This is big news,
because this book, this book basically
makes it sound like two of Trump’s top officials
were constantly trying to stop Trump from causing
trouble or getting into trouble. You know, it’s like that thing
parents do, you know, when they swap a real thing
with a toy from their baby. You know when parents do that? Be like, “Whoa, whoa. Give me
Daddy’s cell phone back and you can have
the big boy phone.” And the kid is happy.
They’re just like, “Hello. Is this the president
of Ukraine? “Hello? Give me the doo doo
on Biden. “I want the doo doo on Biden. “Okay. Thank you. Bye-bye. He told me the cow says, ‘moo.'” That’s basically
what was happening. And I’ve got to say, this is
a really complicated issue, ’cause on the one hand, I understand where Nikki Haley
is coming from. America voted for Trump, right? He won the electoral college. And so his policies
are what people voted for, so his staff shouldn’t try
to undermine him. On the other hand,
this is also the same president who suggesting nuking
hurricanes. So maybe (bleep) blocking him
is a good idea? I don’t know. And while Nikki Haley’s book is all about allowing Trump
to be Trump, there’s another book
making headlines right now with the total opposite message. And this book is coming
from inside the White House. TV REPORTER: A warning creating
instant shock waves. The anonymous author
who claims to be a senior Trump administration
official paints a picture of a president
who is unstable and inept. The writer describing
a near-daily five-alarm fire drill, where senior officials
cancel plans and race to the White House
to prevent the president from enacting his latest wacky
or destructive idea. The author saying
behind closed doors, the president makes racist
and misogynistic remarks, describing him as reckless, and without full control
of his faculties. Oh, my God. Trump is erratic,
racist and misogynist? Thank God we have
this inside source. How else would we have known? Oh, wow! (applause) Seriously, I… I don’t get it. We all know this stuff already. Like, these are not revelations. This is like a spy
coming out of Russia, like, (with Russian accent):
“You didn’t hear it from me, “but Russia is very big. I should go.
I’ve said enough.” (normal voice):
So look, the truth is, if you want to learn
something new about Trump, this book is probably
not gonna do it for you. But one person who might
actually have revelations about Trump is John Bolton, former national security advisor
and permanent Got Milk ad. He claims to have
unique insider information relevant to
the impeachment probe, but he’s not telling Congress
about it. He might be saving it
for his upcoming book. TV REPORTER:
An attorney for former national security advisor
John Bolton revealed on Friday that Bolton was “personally involved in many
of the events, meetings and conversations at the center
of the impeachment probe, as well as many relevant
meetings and conversations that have not yet
been discussed publicly. Bolton had been scheduled
to testify as part of the impeachment
probe, last Thursday, but he did not appear. Bolton has a new book deal
with Simon and Schuster, and, according to reports, that deal is worth
about $2 million. Oh, I see. So Bolton might spill the beans on impeachable offenses
by the president, but only for $2 million. Yes, he’s truly the hero
America deserves. Imagine if someone like that
called 911. Just like, “Hello, police, there’s a killer
on the loose.” “Okay, sir, where is he?” “Venmo me 20 bucks
and I’ll tell you.” (laughter) And I’m not gonna lie, I’m not impressed
by the news of Bolton’s book, because what’s the point of
releasing anything on Trump if it comes out next year? Right? Impeachment
is gonna be happening now. And worst of all, Bolton totally stole his cover
from Michelle Obama. I don’t care what anybody says. That is not his look. (laughter) So, look, look, the truth is whether it’s Anonymous,
Nikki Haley or John Bolton, beneath it all, these books are
all trying to do the same thing: profit off the chaos. Because these books
don’t help the country. They just trade on rumors
and innuendo to make the authors money. Like, if someone has valuable
information about the president, they should just tell
the American people instead of holding out
for a big payday. It’s about the president.
It’s about the country. -(cheering and applause)
-And… And you know what? I actually think
I know how we fix this. Like, I-I’m gonna tell you
how we fix this in my new book… called Buy My Book:
a Book I Want You to Buy. (laughter) -(cheering and applause)
-For just $29.99… For just $29.99, you will learn shocking facts like Trump is a bad person, Trump has divided America and Mike Pence
seems like a weird guy. But, most importantly,
my book finally reveals how Americans
can get Trump out of office. So make sure you get a copy
when it comes out in 2025.

    1:26 "To undermine a President is a very dangerous thing." – Nikki Haley
    You can't undermine him when he gives you an order. You can, however, if you think he is unfit for office, invoke the 25th Amendment!
    If you all thought he was unfit for office, you should have invoked the 25th Amendment when you had the chance you moron!
    Take your book and shove it up your ass! You did NOTHING to protect the American people! You are just as much of a traitor to our country as Trump is!

    6:24 Trevor Noah's sequel to "Born a Crime".
    The title should be "Born a CRIMINAL" if it's all about Donny Trump.

    Did revor just mock chinese people by doing chinese voice. Hmmm

  58. C Smith says:

    Ok, I can't believe I'm about to defend someone here, but Bolton and aide Kupperman aren't holding back to get book deals. Both are known as straight shooters, with Bolton being one of the voices that got this on people's radar before he and Trump called it quits–after Pompeo took a great, big ol' butcher knife sized to make Michael Myers jealous and buried it in Bolton's back, then tried to make Bolton seem like the dangerous and unhinged one trying to interfere with sound diplomacy efforts, like trying to betray us to Al Qaeda on the very anniversary of 9/11 and somehow just not mentioning that oh, yeah, turns out he was listening in on that call, too, even when the shite was hitting the fan. Bolton is just asking that they get a judicial branch ruling before they start asking him about what is in dispute as far as what those still IN the Trump admin first tried to hide by making the call secret for classified security/storage issues, not hold in reserve so that he can get paid before he starts revealing despite being classified.

  59. Kwrisford Ricky says:

    What is wrong with this stupid comedian? He seems to always take a dig at President Trump's administration. Another evidence Africans are easily manipulated with money. Disgusting!!

    "Trump" and "books" in the same sentence, bloody hilarious!

  72. ncwanderer9577 says:

    I am confused. Ok not really. If Nikki thought it was so bad to undermine the president by two trusted people, why didn't she tell the president himself? Was it because she knew Kelly and Tillerson was right and now she is just trying to save herself?
