The Daily Show Slams ‘Racist Maniac’ Donald Trump: He’s ‘White ISIS – He’s Whisis!’ (Video)

donald-trump-crazy-exclusionUnless you were living under a rock on Tuesday, you undoubtedly heard plenty about GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump saying he wants to see a ban on all Muslims entering into the United States. His rhetoric was so inflammatory that even many conservative pundits seemed to have finally had enough of “The Fascist Donald.”



Well, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah teed off on the “racist maniac” Trump, mocking the absurd (and illegal) suggestion that the United States should ban all Muslims from entering the country.

“Now let’s just take a second to think about what he said here,” Noah stated. “Republican presidential frontrunner, Donald J. Trump, wants to ban every single person – from the world’s second largest religion – from entering the United States of America. Every doctor and every scientist.”

He then went on to make fun of Trump’s suggestion of a “screening process” to enforce this fascism, which basically consists of a customs agent asking travelers whether or not they’re Muslim. Because, you know, a potential terrorist would definitely not know how to get around that level of intensive scrutiny and questioning.

Noah then said Trump’s proposal goes against everything for which the United States stands, accurately stating that we’re a nation which was largely founded upon people escaping religious persecution.

He went on to point out that it’s not exactly Trump’s craziness that really worries him, but the people who are proudly following and supporting his brand of crazy. This is another point I’ve emphasized. While quite a few members of the Republican party have condemned Trump’s rhetoric for months, often claiming he doesn’t represent the party’s values, I’m not sure how you make the argument that he doesn’t represent the “values” of the party when he’s the overwhelming frontrunner for your party’s presidential nomination.

Noah then brought on political correspondent Hasan Minhaj, who jokingly said Trump is right, Muslims shouldn’t be allowed in this country – it’s not safe for them here. Clearly he was alluding to the increasing number of stories where Muslims have faced harassment or mosques have been vandalized as the fear-mongering rhetoric from the Republican party continues to put innocent Muslim Americans in danger.

But then the two had a bit of an “epiphany.”



“Donald Trump is an extremist leader who came out of no where,” Minhaj stated. “He’s self-financed; recruits through social media; attracts his follows with a radical ideology to take over the world; and is actively trying to promote a war between Islam and the West.”

“Oh my god, Hasan. He’s white ISIS,” Noah said.

“That’s right Trevor,” Minhaj replied. “Donald Trump is white ISIS – Whisis.”

While I wouldn’t personally go as far as to compare Trump to ISIS (though the comparisons to fascism are definitely valid) this segment was brilliant in that it used common conservative anti-Muslim talking points against the leading Republican presidential candidate.

How all of this will ultimately impact Trump’s candidacy is anyone’s guess, but these next few polls which get released should be very telling on how far over the cuckoo’s nest conservative voters have flown.

    After 2,500 were killed at Pearl Harbor, FDR put the brakes on immigration from Germany and Japan. After Islamic, mostly Saudi radicals killed 2,996 on 9/11, George Bush made a deal with Saudi Arabia to let in 15,000 additional Saudi (male) students to the US and Obama seems inclined to import as many Muslim immigrants as he can. Trump suggested putting temporary restrictions on all Muslims coming to the US and putting them on some sort of unconstitutional list. FDR topped that by actually keeping out Germans and Japanese for years and even incarcerating Japanese Americans. If Trump is “White ISIS”, what is FDR?

        If you want the context of the Jimmy Carter sanction it is available online. Look up the article “Sanctions Against Iran Remarks Announcing U.S. Actions. April 7, 1980” at presidency dot ucsb dot edu. There are also list of Obama quotes lauding Islam available on line. Thank you for the opportunity to provide you with another.

        If you want to provide the context of Obama’s quotes, you are free to do so and I will be happy to provide more such quotes. My larger point though, the one you are ducking, is that FDR and Jimmy Carter both ended immigration based on less provocation then 9/11.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Oh I get it. You are trying to change the subject instead of addressing the terrorist recruiting poster boy, Donald J. Trump. I didn’t know you had such a crush on him. Don’t worry, this will end soon….

      • strayaway

        Your reading comprehension being what is, you must have skipped the part I wrote about Trump, “Trump suggested putting temporary restrictions on all Muslims coming to the US and putting them on some sort of unconstitutional list.” Otherwise, I noted that Trump’s temporary proposal was more in line with what FDR and Carter actually did than either Obama or Bush’s policies. How did calling Trump’s list “unconstitutional” support your argument that I had a crush on Trump? Never mind, its probably your reading comprehension again.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        you assume people read what you post? Again, when you selectively quote people you categorize yourself as someone who cannot be taken seriously. Why are you here again?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        BTW, I just read your idiotic post and have to say you are funnier the second time! LMAO Please tell me, do you know the difference between a country and an entire religion? Are you and your right wing puppeteers able to differentiate between the two? LMAO

        I’m more interested in the implication of numbers than religions (Islam) or philosophies (Marxism, National Socialism) . All have left behind history of bloodshed a fact that I am more concerned about. Your PC cliches and talking points are a poor substitute for numbers. My lining up with FDR and Jimmy Carter on immigration while you line up with George Bush is ironic.

        IS = “Islamic State”. It is a State with borders it defends. Perhaps you missed the 33 minute speech by its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He recently addressed your question: “Where are you in relation to your Prophet (peace be upon him), whom you claim to emulate, and who spent his whole life (peace be upon him) as a mujāhid for the cause of Allah, fighting His enemies? His lateral incisor tooth was broken in battle, his forehead was wounded, two rings from his chainmail cut his cheeks, his helmet was broken on his head, and blood ran down his face.””This war is only against you and against your religion. Has the time not come for you to return to your religion and your jihād and thereby bring back your glory, honor, rights, and leadership? Has the time not come for you to know that there is no might nor honor nor safety nor rights for you except in the shade of the Caliphate?… Therefore, O Muslims, seek shelter – after Allah – with the Islamic State.””ISLAM WAS NEVER A RELIGION OF PEACE. Islam is the religion of fighting. No-one should believe that the war that we are waging is the war of the Islamic State. It is the war of all Muslims, but the Islamic State is spearheading it. It is the war of Muslims against infidels.”

        Ignoring the head of the Islamic State,
        “Islam is a religion of peace.” -BHO

        Keep flailing, it’s OK. 1.5 Billion Muslims and counting. Personally, I think all religions are total BS. They are all dangerous because they are not rooted in facts or reality. Imaginary friends for grownups are never a good source of information or foundation for government, and crowing that we are a “Christian nation” is just another brand of lunacy (see the GOP). We must keep all religious crazies out of our government, no matter who the imaginary sky friend happens to be.

      • strayaway

        I agree with more of your statement than you might think. My take is that most Christians and Muslims are secular materialists first and religious second. Its the ones who get serious about their respective religions who get down to religious cores who, as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi alludes, “emulate” their religion’s founder. Hence, the asymptomatic carrier effect of most Muslims who live peaceful lives. Beyond that, any religion or philosophy (e.g. Marxism, National Socialism) can be used as a tool to politically or militarily facilitate power and greed. The only thing significantly different about Islam from other major religions is the nature and example of its founder.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        I don’t understand your burning desire to exonerate Donald Trump for his statements. Do you understand the difference between the Iranian Hostage crisis and President Carter, vs Trump and his unhinged rants?

        Let me guess, that’s a “no”. There is no difference to simple minded people like followers of the GOP….

      • strayaway

        I think I already answered your question but you probably missed it. 2996 were killed in 9/11, none were killed in the hostage crises. 2,996 is a bigger number than zero but Carter responded with firmness anyway. Both Iran and the Islamic State are states. That part is the same. I oppose Trump’s call for lists of Muslims in the US as unconstitutional and think his call for limiting all Muslims into the US is overreaching. After all, some have served as interpreters or otherwise put themselves at risk for the US. They should be protected. I pointed out that Carter’s exclusions of Iranians included humanitarian provisions. I’ve also mentioned in another thread that the US, under Obama, is responsible for creating many of these refugees so we owe them something. I suggested funding refugee camps in Arab countries. However, after 9/11 and all else going on in the Muslim interfacing world, Trump’s suggestion of a temporary halt makes more sense to me than pretending that IS and other Islamist forces around the world don’t mean us harm and that our vetting will stop them from from infiltrating the US; perhaps with WMD’s.

    The apple to your orange, strayaway, is that we were at war Germany and Japan. As for Carter and Iran, the 52 American hostages that were taken and held by the government supported student radicals combined with the anti-America sentiment of the new regime again allowed a president to focus on a threat from a particular nation. These were targeted actions against people of a nation that had demonstrated government sanctioned hostility toward the U.S. I have never agreed with the incarceration of Japanese citizens and have written numerous articles to that affect. In my opinion, that was a step too far. Trump, on the other hand, wants to bar ALL people of a certain faith…in this case, Muslim. And that is is painting with a very broad brush, indeed. Many Islamic states are valued allies, including Turkey, Kuwait and Jordan. Trump’s overly simplistic and frankly, sophomoric idea is not only foolish, it’s highly unlikely that it’s even legal.

    • strayaway

      The Islamic STATE, it is a state like Germany and Japan, is also at war with the US. Its forces come from Muslim communities all over the world. It claims to have funneled terrorists into Europe and the US. 20-50 Somali Americans, mostly the children of refugees, are said to have joined up with IS. Most Japanese weren’t avid Shintoists. Most Germans weren’t Nazis but FDR wasn’t stupid enough to think he could vet the ones who weren’t.

  • Creeayshun Sighuntist

    It looks like the GOP is finally going to deal with the monster they have created. I really wish this could have lasted a little longer so Hillary could take him out, but he is now putting American lives at risk with his crazy talk.

  • Harle Cassler

    Strayaway, my final comment on this thread; Calling Islamic State a “state” is like calling the true knights of the ku klux klan (lack of capitalization intentional) royalty. They are a confederacy of extremists who have managed to recruit a few fellow whack jobs and take over some towns. They have no established government, no passports marked “Islamic State”, and zero recognition from the United States or anyone else as a sovereign nation. Using Trumps logic, we should ban all Africans because of the actions of Boko Haram (who, by the way is even more bloodthirsty than ISIS, but hey…where’s the oil?). Trump is an opportunistic reactionary who feeds his polling numbers by stoking the flames of fear. I’m sorry that you’ve chosen to buy into it. Have a great day!

      Definition of “state”: “a nation or territory considered as an organized political community under one government.”

      IS is a state. It has a military defending its territory. It has social services and other government services. The garbage does get picked up. Hospitals function. Life goes on in the Islamic State whether or not the US State Department recoignizes the Islamic State. Whereas Al Queda was mostly about feats, the IS is a sovereign government in control of an area the size of Indiana. Your remark about Boko Harem supports Trumps position. There are, as you probably know, similar radical organizations in many Mideast, African, and SE Asian countries with significant Muslim populations.
