Nespresso Controversy, Taliban Agreement & New York Pay Phone Removal | The Daily Show

Posted by


Coffee. It’s the drink you have
when you’re sleepy so you can poop yourself awake. (laughter) But one coffee company is
in trouble for how they get that coffee
to you. The famous pitch man for
a coffee giant, George Clooney, is speaking out
after that company was linked to a child labor scandal. MAN 2: As Nespresso’s
brand ambassador, George Clooney has been
the face of the company. Now he’s using his voice to say he’s surprised
and saddened by child labor allegations
raised against suppliers
to the coffee maker. Clooney is already responding, saying that progress
has been made, but “Clearly the board and this
company still have work to do. And that work will be done.” Yes, Nespresso has been accused of using child labor
to make their coffee, which is disappointing,
but, also, not shocking. I mean, why else would
those cups be so tiny? -I mean, those aren’t being made
by adults. -(laughter) And I’ll be honest,
this story really made me angry, because I hate child labor. One–
because it exploits children, and two– because
if a kid messes up on the job, you can’t get mad at them. Yeah. You’re gonna look
like an asshole. There’s no accountability.
Yeah, the kid is just like, “I was supposed
to do a liver transplant, but instead, by mistakes,
I took your kidney.” (laughter) And then you just have
to be like, “What?! “I-I guess you did your best.
Okay. All right, Dr. Kid.” And by the way, it’s funny
how the news seems to care more about what George Clooney has
to say about the scandal than the actual CEO
of Nespresso, right? ‘Cause like,
“George Clooney said this.” Like, yeah,
where’s the boss of Nespresso? It would be like if we found out that McDonald’s was serving
poison beef, and the CEO was like,
“Let me explain.” And you’re like,
“Shut up! Where’s Ronald? -We want to talk to Ronald!”
-(laughter) All right, moving on to
some good news from Afghanistan, -a phrase no one has ever said.
-(laughter) America’s never-ending war
with the Taliban might finally be coming
to an end. America’s longest running war
could finally come to an end. Over the weekend,
the United States signed a deal with the Taliban to end
the nearly two-decade conflict that gripped Afghanistan
in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent
U.S. invasion of the country. The agreement lays out
a time table for the full withdrawal
of U.S. and coalition troops from Afghanistan
within 14 months. In exchange,
the Taliban agreed that it would not allow
Afghan territory to be used by any groups or individuals
to plot future attacks against the United States
and its allies. This is a big deal. The United States and
the Taliban might have a deal. And this is huge. Besides
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, this might be the biggest peace
agreement of the century. It’s huge. And after 20 years
and two trillion dollars, you have to admit, that’s a lot
of lowered expectations. Yeah? No, ’cause America went in
to Afghanistan like, “We’re taking out the Taliban “and bringing in
Western democracy no matter how long it takes!” And now America’s like,
“Uh, we’re-we’re gonna leave. Um, just, like,
don’t do another 9/11, okay?” (laughter) Now, the deal hasn’t
been concluded yet, because there are still
some things that need to be worked out,
which makes sense. ‘Cause if you think about it, these two countries
have been entwined in a 20-year relationship,
all right? We all know
it’s hard to walk away when you’ve spent
that much time together. So, America, let me… let me give you
some relationship tips. (laughter, whooping) First of all, America, let me just say
I’m-I’m proud of you. You’ve realized that
you’re in a toxic relationship with Afghanistan and…
and you’re ready to get out. Now I want to warn you,
for a while, there’s-there’s gonna be a part
of you that wants to go back and bum them
in the middle of the night, but you stay strong. And you remember,
no matter what you think now, there are plenty of other
Middle Eastern countries out there for you. (cheers and applause) And finally, in some local news
close to my heart, New York City is saying farewell
to one of its oldest residents. New York City is hanging it up, removing the last remaining
pay phones from the streets. City workers will remove
30 pay phones in Hell’s Kitchen alone
by the end of March, then rip out
about 3,000 more pay phones across the five boroughs. Did you know
there were that many left? Yeah, this is a sad day
for New Yorkers. After so many decades, soon, we will no longer have
the pay phone, which means we’ll have to find
somewhere else to get hepatitis. -(laughter)
-And… and, look, I know… I know we don’t need pay phones
anymore, but they were such a big part
of the landscape for so long. You know?
You could count on them if you locked yourself
out of your apartment, or… or if you needed
to call the mafia, and… And, also, like, like, Superman.
You know, like, pay phones. It was cool when he changed
in a phone booth. Those are things that are gone. Although, actually,
now that I think about it, he didn’t have to use that. He could have just flown home
and changed. (laughter) Now that I think about it,
I feel like Superman was just, like,
a secret exhibitionist. You know, he was… Yeah, he was just changing
in the phone booth because he got excited
that someone might catch him. He was just… You know? He was just like,
“Oh, no, you-you saw me naked. “Oh. Oh, man. “Now you’re gonna tell everyone,
‘Big Dick Superman.’ Oh, I hope
they don’t call me that.” It’s like, “Get out of here,
Superman, you pervert!” “Okay, okay, I go…
I’ve got to go “and save a bunch of kids making
tiny coffee cups. (laughs) One last look?
Okay, got to go.”

  1. How can US sign an agreement with a terrorist group that it once attacked Afghanistan to destroy it?!?!? even if they want to leave and sign agreements it should not be with Taleban!!!

  2. This is really not news. Although difficult to stop using anything Nestle because of all of their brands that it takes some digging to find(Stouffer, Hagen Daaz, etc), there has been an ongoing boycott for decades.

  3. Just a silly correction.

    Trevor: There are plenty of OTHER middle eastern countries out there.

    Well the bad news is Afghanistan is not a middle eastern country. In fact it’s very far away from the Middle East.

  4. 1:10 we can joke abt it, but in 3rd world nations child labourers are still beaten to death, locked down and works for small meals

  5. The Afghan people dont want a fuckin peace deal between the Taliban and the US. They want a peace deal between the Taliban and the Afghan government. And without even including the local government, they US already promised to the Taliban the release of 5000 Taliban prisoners. The Afghan government declined to realese bec they know the Taliban gonna take over Kabul and install their laws, nobody wants. So the war goes on.

    The US right there abandoned the Afghan government, made a deal with a terror organization and lastly ghosted themselfs after this humiliating diplomatic and physical defeat.

  6. What a great show this is what a good show this is what a great job this guy does great dialog great laughs we should all inspire to do a great job like he does each and every day ! What a credit to the public he is. Fantastic job !

  7. I made a video about this video of Trevor Noah saying coffee several times https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ur7OyAmOjI

  8. 1 countries child labor is another country's family business. in the United States if you have a family business your child can work from as young as five

  9. I love the daily show I really do I watch it everyday but I feel a little disappointed at the amount of biased things said and shown through most episodes I’ve recently noticed that almost everything is about black people and honestly I find that offensive and racist they should be more diverse in the way they present things I know that Trevor is South African and it’s nice that he’s proud of his roots and race but I feel like sometimes it’s too much in another clip he said that joe Biden is now the front runner again thanks to “just” black people and then he says here that he hates child labor and the first picture that pops up is a picture of African children and this isn’t limited to those two episodes if you pay attention it happens almost every episode…. I still love the show but I find it offensive that this is the only ethnicity being represented in a show filmed in the U.S. which is the most diverse country in the whole world… this comment is not meant to offend anyone just trying to voice my opinion and hopefully the staff that runs the YouTube channel sees this and makes note of it and makes changes.

  10. OK…for real though…here is how the deal went. Trump gave the Taliban a few billion dollars to cease fire til after he is elected…thats all. Trump doesn't give a shit about peace or troops or anything but power and money…

  11. Love how they made the coffee bean picking look glamorous: white dude in overalls, bowler hats, sunscreen and safety gloves 😀

  12. israel and Saudi arabia did 9-11 …..afganistan was innocent so was Iraq killed millions of people….scum bag terrorists……not my heros

  13. USD 2T spent in Afghan to fight Taliban. War is truly profitable for some people. Still that 2T could have paid off student loans. Anyway America learn the same lesson that every other nation already know who tried to control middle east and Asia minor. Glad the soldiers are coming home.

  14. 20 years & 2 trillion dollars, we still have terrorism yet our government tells us we can't afford universal healthcare or education or housing , even though all three together would cost less than half $1 trillion over 50 years 🤦🏾‍♂️

  15. What's really hilarious (not) is that all the 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia. Not Afghanistan. Not Iraq.

  16. A deal.with the Taliban without the Afghanistan Government. Did you know that the US just tore that deal up and started bombing the Taliban again?

  17. What, Nestlé is involved in a scandal?! What else is new? Nestlé is one of a handful of companies
    I’ve boycotted for years. I was about to think maybe they were headed in the right direction with their recyclable pods (even though I think coffee pods themselves are kind of an abomination) but leave it to Nestlé to show their true colors in the end.

  18. Bush, we will make a DEMOCRACY out of Afghanistan as long as it takes, HA —– really. you can add Iraq and Syria too . poor people, if you had it with those wars, you can go to GERMANY, we will take you because other wise we are NAZIS —- RIGHT !!! we can't say no, otherwise we are the racist Germans. AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ., SYRIA, there is a much better place for your war torn people T E X A S, I bet Bush and his people would welcome you on his huge Ranch. Listen US — Europe did not start any of those W A R S so why do we have to take care of all those REFUGEE' S ??? – special Germany

  19. It's such a shame that Trevor doesn't fughtfor whats right. It is awesome that his British, Canadian, and Brown American have their own shows though. I just wish Trevor had a shred of integrity, because "The Daily Show" now bows its to corporate interests. This death is slow, and hurtful.

  20. @1:00 Like this to amplify the ongoing atrocity:
    This particular joke on child labor linked to Nespresso
    is gonna be sickening to re-watch six months from now,
    after the reality of THOUSANDS OF DEAD STOLEN CHILDREN becomes visible.

    Every day the breaking-point gets closer,
    and we keep eating around the edges of it.
    Those of us who know, we know unquestionably,
    but it is terrifying to encounter people who haven't even seen the kids in cages,
    people who never heard about that first media-cycle, never followed up never cared,
    still has absolutely no clue about it. This toxic invisible thing, all around U.S. and inside U.S.

  21. Hi Travor..
    We cannot see ur show live in Pakistan. But we love the way u speak nd ur comedy is amazing.. kindly make sure this ..that we can watch u live….. love u…♥️♥️♥️

  22. Deal lasted three days before we shot missiles at the Taliban (I was sure we "mission accomplished" a long time ago)

  23. I dont know if this is good. The taliban are going to murder our allies in Afghanistan and destroy the democratic government forces. Its……going to be bad.

  24. Lol. Have you heard of Cuban coffee? It is served in small cups. No laugh at all. A must to learn History from other countries than Africa, UK n USA.
    FYI. North America or USA instead of America (the American Continent has three areas: North, Centro and South America). Another Geography lesson to learn.

  25. Really, Clooney? Neslé has been an obviously evil company for decades. I have known about their exploitative labour practices for years.

  26. What no one is is talking about is that part of the Afhanistn peace deal is secret and not released to the public! Considering the deal was made by the criminal Trump administration, there is no telling what that secret is, like maybe a Trump tower, like when he was dealing with the Russian mob with connections to Putin, money changing hands to the criminal Trump mob, or maybe something for his buddy Putin!!

  27. Finally someone famous said it. Do not exploit children. So ppl who make commercials with kids in it should be fined as well

  28. For end that war we need to end the war industry. Otherwise can't do anything. You already know usa hit the taliban after peace agreement just after 2 days. You don't need to be rocket scientist to understand.

  29. “There’s gonna be a part of you that wants to go back and bomb them in the middle of the night “

    Which is exactly what happened two days later …..

  30. "America does not negotiate with terrorists". This phrase will no longer hold in a Movie. hahaha. So, who is Nespresso again?

  31. Everyone in the comment section acting like they really know what's going on in the middle east😂😂 so much ignorance in this world

  32. Child Labor sounds bad and from America it looks bad. But if your so poor you cant eat and you could work to feed your family Im sure its a better life than starving . Hardly ideal just trying to see the other side.

  33. They just cannot fight the afghans, they still sell lee Enfield's and nato gear in north pakistan that was stripped off from the fallen soldiers to this day

  34. All companies operating in Africa are using child and slave labor. Not a secret, everybody knows it. Stop being hypocrites, americans. And George Clooney is just an asshole promoting himself. Like any good american, he only cares about one thing: getting paid.

  35. All the lives lost in this war on terror. At least the arms manufacturers got very wealthy. Oh, and we lost some of our freedoms with the Patriot act. Hey what a Great War this was. Makes Vietnam look like a victory.

  36. Nestlé in a scandal? Inconceivable!
    What about Nestlé buying drinking water from people who need it? Oh right, no Clooney, no coverage…

  37. This show is getting so trivial and silly, it sucks that everything that has some success gets corrupted so fast these days..

  38. "America's longest running War"

    Conflict, Congress never declared war.
    Congress hasn't declared war since 1942.

  39. Day 1 peace with Taliban. Day 3 : Taliban terrorist attack agaisn't civils. That's what the entire world called a "donald peace of shit"

  40. Nestle has been proven time and time again to use child slave labor to pick coco beans, BOLD of of y’all to think that they wouldn’t do it again with coffee beans in another branch of their company.

  41. Nestle is an evil overlord coorporation, which uses slave labor, child labor and whole communities hostage, for water! Water is an universal right, boycott Nestle! Most big coorporations do so, please get educated on sustainable business models and support those! ❤️

  42. Yes, phone booths really aren't an ideal place to change, what with the walls being transparent and all..
